Conclusion: The Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse is highly configurable, with a dizzying array of options and features, but its price will keep many buyers at bay.
Pros: Ambidextrous, customizable design. Detachable side panels and adjustable palmrest for fine-tuning grip. Wired and wireless modes. Super accurate dual-sensor array. 11 programmable buttons. An onboard ARM processor to keep it all straight.
Summary: The Ouroboros wireless mouse from Razer sports a unique and customizable chassis, with two sets of replaceable side grips and an included dock for recharging the included battery. We have no less than 9 configurable buttons from Razer Synapse 2.0 and can be also used as a wired device in order to recharge the battery while playing.
Excerpt: I’m a left-handed gamer, and unlike those treacherous left-handed gamers who play games right-handed instead because THEY HAVE NO SELF-RESPECT (or whatever), I play games left-handed. In fact, I’ve been using a left-handed Razer DeathAdder mouse for about six months now, and before that I used the now tragically discontinued Logitech MX610, but before that I used a right-handed something-or-other because, honestly, left-handed gaming mice are not exactly available in...
Conclusion: So how to rate this product? As a collectible, as a design experiment I feel it is completely successful. There are other mice on the market that allow for some customization, but not with the typical Razer design influences. Of course, I would eagerly drive either a Tumbler or Lamborghini given the chance, so perhaps I'm a little biased here. I think the Razer design team should be proud of themselves, as I feel they put together a unique and beautiful product.
Pros: Lots of customization options, Hybrid wired/wireless, Decent battery life, Two sets of side grips, Proof of alien engineering on the receiver dock, Programmable buttons, "Clutch" button functions that can be locked if necessary, Polished, logical interface on software, Also, that stuff on the receiver dock, Razer Green lights (that can be turned off if needed), Good stand-in until you get your own Tumbler (it looks good)
Cons: Only comes in Razer Green, Intermittent tracking issues, Vague scroll wheel, Needs even more adjustments!, If you want one, you can't get one right now, soon..., Requires cloud-based driver to change settings
Conclusion: The Razer Ouroboros ships at a price of $129.99 which is quite a bit for a mouse but considering that it is a limited edition model and a high-end mouse the pricing is fair. I wanted it to be more around the $99 mark, do note at the retail price you don’t get the same packaging or the USB stick as the reviewers copy. Nevertheless, the Razer Ouroboros is a high-end mouse which any gamer or user would love for its performance and build quality.
Conclusion: Razer Ouroboros is a good choise for a person, who wants his mouse wirelessly and with a good performance. The biggest problem with the mouse is the price, which is about 120 euros. Also the side panel buttons are way too stiff and the software has some issues. Even though the mouse has good customization capabilities, I still strongly recommend to try the mouse in your hand before buying it.
Pros: Customizable, Ambidextrous, Wireless / wired..., ...can be used with a wire, Accurate, Unique features
Cons: Price, Battery life, Hard plastic cover, The rear panel has fairly sharp edges, Way too stiff side panel buttons, Problems with mousepad calibration
Excerpt: Back in 2009 Razer began desiging a new mouse. With the concept being inspired by the Lamborghini Reventon and Batmobile they were aiming for a structural, edgy chassis and transformable/customisable options. Between then and now we have seen some of their existing products receive a customisable facelift, such as the NAGA gaining changeable side panels but that concept from 2009 took time to develop and refine.
Conclusion: The Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse is one of the best on the market thanks a wealth of customisation options that even enables gamers to alter the physical appearance of the device, to more closely fit your hand and grip style. Add to this a lighting fast response time and the ability to use it as either a wireless or wired mouse, and you have a very compelling all-round package, wrapped up in a unique design that will get noticed as much as its feature set.
Pros: Standout design., Customisable ergonomics., A button lover’s dream with nine mouse buttons., Nice, weighty feel to the mouse., Wired or unwired usage supported., Lightning quick response time.
Excerpt: Ouroboros is usually depicted as a snake eating its own tail. It is a distinctly different concept to that of something existing for infinity, because it means an endless cycle of death and rebirth. So to name a mouse, and especially you're new top of the range model, as Ouroboros is a strange choice on the part of Razer.
