Summary: I purchased this product thinking I would like to go bluetooth wireless on my laptop. The mouse performed fine for a few days. When I tried to change some of the button functions, I lost the ability to left click, both with the mouse and touch pad. I finally uninstalled and started over. After some hours, I was able to use the mouse again. However, now the cursor drifts out of position even when the mouse is not moving.
Summary: Nice mouse actually. Tracking was precise and out of the four BT mice I have had over the past 3 years, this one had the least drops in connectivity. HOWEVER, within the fist day, the glide pad stickers on the bottom of the mouse started pulling up at the corners making it impossible to track precisely. For aesthetic purposes only, they chose to make the glides angular and pointed instead of rounded like every other mouse. Well, there is a reason those pads are rounded.
Received defective, but still a lackluster product.

Summary: I have been using Razer products for years and have been extremely satisfied. I use the Razer Tarantula and Razer DeathAdder 3500 (the best mouse I've used in my life). The Orochi came in the mail with its typically awesome Razer packaging. I took it out, put in the batteries it came with, patched it, and gave it a try. The wireless worked for a while (when it wasn't in its automatic sleep mode after not using it for three seconds..), then just stopped.
Summary: I've spent so much money looking for a high quality, portable 3 button bluetooth mouse. This is one of the bigger disappointments. Flakey connection, buggy software, and expensive. I feel like a fool for buying this. If you're a Mac user, believe the other negative reviews here and stay far away from this one.
Summary: I bought this mouse not as a gaming mouse, but as a >3 button Bluetooth mouse for use with my MacBook Pro. Bear that in mind while reading this... The first issue is that the mouse's firmware somehow communicates to the Mac that it's not only a mouse, but also a new keyboard. When sensing a new keyboard, OS X runs the user through a Keyboard Assistant application. Every time I connected the Orochi to my Mac, this Assistant would come up.
Summary: The very, very short synopsis is: this product will not work if you also need to use another Razer product with a different driver series (1.x vs. 2.x). Apparently, Razer didn't consider you would want to buy two of their products and plug them into the same computer. Support has been terse, uncommunicative at best, extremely difficult to reach, and overall abysmal. If you need to reach a human, they will read a script.
Summary: Pros: Looks Good Cons: (Most of the problems are in wireless mode wired works fine with exception of the bad lazer,)(most resent Drivers were used) To small Constantly disconnects (mouse less than a feet away from computer) lazer is horrible (cursor doesn't move smoothly) Sometimes the lid to access the batteries gets stuck I like razer and own a few of their products (everything else i own by razer is great well made products) but this mouse fails 1 out of 5 main...
Summary: I've heard over and over again that Razer is the company to go to for gaming mice. Their stringent standards and quality control are legend, so I thought I would give them a try. What I got was a piece of junk. The software is hideous and unusable. I tried to set the sensitivity of the mouse and the x and y cursors would just disappear. It takes multiple attempts for settings changes to take effect.
Summary: Do not buy this mouse if you plan on using it in wireless/bluetooth mode. It goes into "power saving" mode after only 2-3 seconds of inactivity -- then when you move the mouse again, there's a significant delay as it wakes back up and becomes responsive again. It is absolutely infuriating and completely unusable for gaming, or even for general use.
