Reliable wired performance / Interesting Bluetooth option
Kevin Barry, Amazon

Summary: Let me start out by saying, as much as I like the Magic Mice we use at work- really the standard two button mouse will always be what I prefer- the Razer Orochi delivers as a tiny mouse that still fits very comfortably even in my huge hands! I take a mousepad with me everywhere I go, so I can't really say much about how it performs on various surfaces, but when it's plugged in it's pretty much always at the ready.
Summary: Works well. Made of cheap(feels like) plastic. Wire is a bitch to unplug once its connected. Quality seems like it may not last as long one would expect from a Razer product. Battery life is crappy in comparison to other wireless mice. Likely attributed to the fact that this one uses bluetooth while others use proprietary wireless connection to a USB receiver.
With the included cable works great but wireless so so...

Summary: When the mouse is conected via usb cable works great, for normal use or to play games, i use this mouse with my gaming laptop and think the size of the mouse and construction ar fine, the usb cable seems cheaply made. But, when used via bluetooth well the cursor jump around the screen, i dont know why, i use a razer mouse pad, and use alienware 14 laptop with latest drivers, but the mouse just dont works as it should be, gaming wireless dont even think about it!
Mouse with 3 different revisions ranging from 2 stars to 5 stars, could be tricky to buy the right one, contact Razer first?
31 March 2014
Summary: There have been 3 revisions of this mouse! 1) . The first one is supposed to have too much of a delay to wake up from sleep / too short of a delay to go to sleep. 2) . The second one (2013) I believe (I own one of these) worked to perfection, it woke up instantly without noticeable delay, excellent battery life (this one would have gotten 5 stars) 3) . The third revision went too far in delay killing, it guzzles down a set of AA batteries in a week!
Summary: Pros: Can be wired. Comfortable. Easy open cover to change batteries. Cool green illumination. Games well in UT 3. Cons: It has a horrible battery saving feature where it will turn off after about 2 - 2.5 minutes of inactivity. To wake the mouse up you need to click on a button. Battery life with 1000ms polling rate and mouse illumination on seems to be about 2 weeks with 2 AA 2400 mAh NiMH batteries.
If you are looking for a bluetooth mouse (for your Mac, in particular), (I USED TO THINK) this is the one to get-*UPDATED REVIEW
31 July 2013
Summary: UPDATE March 17, 2014: I have knocked off a star from my review of the mouse. I have to say that my glowing review has lost some luster. While the performance and connectivity of the mouse to my iMac is still great, the annoyances of the mouse seem to be getting amplified the longer I have had it. The (supposed) battery saving, "sleep/wake" feature of the mouse has never lived up to the manufacturer's specs.
Summary: I was very excited when I got this mouse. It feels great in the hand, looks cool, and has a very nice driver interface/program. However, on the very first day I used it, it would periodically lose or degrade the signal while I was using it. this caused the mouse to be very unresponsive and jerky. Beyond the obvious problem of partially dropping or degrading the Bluetooth signal, it was way too sensitive for my tastes.
Like the Death Adder, this mouse is not worth the extra cost

Summary: This product will work OK on a Mac (I have OSX 10.8.3) as long as you do not use the Razer drivers.....IF YOU HAVE A MAC, AND YOU DON'T INSTALL 'RAZER_SYNAPSE" this "Orachi" will work as well as the apple or other mouse. Don't see any advantage. for photoshop or any program. I wanted to get all the buttons working so I installed the software as instructed but couldn't get the cursor to move. I had to plug in my old apple mouse again.
Loss connection and side button not work with razer synapse

Summary: I'm using this mouse for 1 month , my problem started with razer synapse side buttons they work as Sensitivity switching even after i disable them in synapse , also some time i lose connection with Bluetooth receiver. But it good mouse over all.
Summary: I thought that the 2013 Orochi specs were more appealing than other mice which is why I decided on this mouse. When the mouse is plugged in to the USB cord it works great. But the bluetooth could be better in my opinion. The range is not very good, it will only go about 10 feet away before it loses connection. I was switching my living room HTPC to bluetooth, so I also got a Logitech K810 keyboard. The Keyboard will easily go twice as far away without a glitch.
