Cool but expensive. Less than impressive battery but great customisation options.

Summary: Definitely one of the best looking mice in existence, but is it the best overall? I used a logitech MX revolution for years, regarding it as the best mouse out there for my needs, but it finally died on me. I replaced it with a cheap wireless thing that did the job, but had many annoyances. I looked at a few mice to upgrade to, and in the end my faith in the razer brand had me settle on this. How does it perform? Here are some Pros and Cons that I have found so far.

Summary: Battery life is as expected to be honest (not amazing) although its an awesome mouse it takes some adjusting to, especially to make the most of the features. I use it as a wired mouse mainly but still the wireless is just as good.
Summary: Razer Synapse software is iffy sometimes and takes around 30 seconds to initialize after boot but aside from that it's a great mouse and I'm happy I solved my issues. I gave a 4/5 just because of the hassle of setting up properly and also because Synapse 2.0 needs work. Still glad I bought it!
Pros: Well the mouse is just a gamers delight for the most part. Nice weight and sweet lighting, like the clicking on the buttons too.
Cons: Setting up this mouse can be difficult to get right unfortunately. If you want this mouse to function perfectly then follow these steps:
Install the latest Razer Synapse 2.0 software from the razerzone.com
With the mouse connected search Google for the firmware update - only one I think - and then update it.
Then either turn the mouse off by holding the 2 sensitivity buttons for 7 sec or take battery out, then press the button on the receiver, after flashing stops tur...
Summary: Pros: nice feel to it, comfortable for my big hands, very good for
ambidextrous people, the change of Dpi on the fly in-game is excellent for
various reasons (change of weapons in Mechwarrior Online for example). The
choice of having it wired/wireless is easy and nice to do. Cons: High price (unless on special), for the amount of money this mouse is
it should be not made of plastic.
Summary: This is an amazing mouse with so many features and abilities. Really like what it can do and it's built really nice. Would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a mouse as it does 10x more than your normal mouse. Does have a few issues though, read online!
Summary: I just finished completely overhauling my gaming setup with a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Keyboard and the Ouroboros wireless mouse and I could not be happier, by gameplay has been 10x more enjoyable and more comfortable since the purchase. Would highly recommend both devices to anyone wanting to game in comfort and style!!!
Pros: - great wireless play and comfortable
- sleek design
- awesome response time
Cons: - Micro USB is sometimes difficult to connect into the wireless stand
Summary: Being that the price tag is on the extremely high end of gaming peripherals, the mouse doesn't come with much more than a charger/Bluetooth receiver, a couple custom configuration pieces, and the mouse itself. It's packaged beautifully, with elegance and care, but as an avid gamer, I would much prefer a bad looking box with a fantastic product inside. Save me $30 for the packaging cost and I'll walk away much happier.
Pros: Fantastic feeling, looking, and performing. The mouse works in a fantastic array of configurations and provides exceptional response. Programming in different macros and assigning buttons is simple and straightforward using Razer's Synapse software. Battery life is great in comparison to most wireless mice, and playing cabled is by no means an inconvenience. As far as I'm concerned, it's the most comfortable and capable mouse I've ever used.
Cons: The Synapse software necessary to get the mouse going and essential for programming the mouse sometimes functions slowly and intrusively. Not necessarily a problem with the mouse, rather the clunky setup of Synapse. After it's properly set, it seems to work wonderfully, but the problems I've had getting it to work at times makes me think Razer has some things to fix there.
Summary: Not the best for my taste, I found it too light compared with my old MMO7 and the force required to press the bottom button on each side is way too much! But it does track well. I did find the maximum sensitivity absolutely nuts though!
Summary: This replaced my old mouse and took some getting used to but I've really warmed to it now, I think it's great. The only issue is when I start up my computer the sensitivity is all over the place for the first minute or so! But then sorts itself out and doesn't have anything wrong during use. The battery life and quality of the mouse without using a cable is brilliant.
