Summary: I've had this mouse for a week, and using it for regular use (when not at work) with a Bluetooth 3.0 laptop. Not sure which revision this mouse is (as I wasn't aware of the differences) but based on the descriptions this Orochi could be either a 1st or 3rd generation device.
Summary: I own the original Orochi mouse and its the best mouse I have every owned. I am an IT guy who loves to game so I have tried quite a few different gaming mice. It is getting kind of old so I decided to purchase the 2013 model.
Summary: In the interest of full disclosure, I actually own a full-sized, corded Razer mouse on my desktop that I use at home, and I like it a lot, but I needed one for my work laptop. I purchased this mouse to be a convenient travel mouse.
I wanted to like this mouse, but I just can't recommend it to anyone. THE CURSOR JUMPS ALL OVER THE SCREEN.

Summary: So I purchased a MacBook Pro, and wanted a portable bluetooth mouse for it. I plunked down the $60+ for it and waited. Amazon true to form delivered within two days and the mouse was unpacked. Loaded with batteries and paired to the laptop fairly quickly. Then I started using it.
Summary: First, the pros: It's a great size for mobile use, has a nice amount of programmable buttons, and is comfortable in my hand. Cons: - The "optional" USB cable is very short, forcing me to plug it in to the same side that I use it on. This gets in the way. - BATTERY LIFE.
Summary: For the price I paid for this... I should have just bought a logitech m510 for half the price and none of the hassle. Eats batteries. 2 AA a week minimum. Frequent disconnects. I thought setting the usb power options to not allow this device to be powered off would solve the issue.
Summary: I'll start this review with the reasons that I bought this mouse in the first place. I needed a mouse with a middle click button scroll wheel that would work with my MacBook Pro over bluetooth. In addition, I wanted some extra buttons that I could configure to do other things.
Summary: At the end of the day this mouse is too heavy for someone who "lifts" to reposition often. And not just a friction or weight preference, there simply isn't enough of an overhang to grab onto for the weight of the mouse and two AA batteries.
Summary: The hardware works fine, it's the software that doesn't work with my Mac. Every time I use it, I have to set up a new profile as it doesn't want to save and sync with the cloud settings. This is very very very very frustrating. Razer: please fix the software for Macs!!!!
Summary: Ive had this mouse for a month now and sad to say that I'm returning it. It drained the batteries that were included within 1 week. I then purchased the lithium energizer batteries and the mouse ate those in 3 weeks.
