Razer Ouroboros Mouse Is Now Available

Razer released its Ouroboros gaming mouse earlier this week, which you can pick up for $129.99. The price tag is hefty, but one of the Ouroboros’ main selling points is its customizable ergonomic design to fit all hand sizes and grip-styles. It also features an 8200 DPI 4G Dual Sensor System, gaming-grade wireless technology with dock, and 11 programmable “hyperesponse” buttons.

Here are some more stats on this beast:

  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling / 1ms response time
  • Up to 200 inches per second / 50g acceleration
  • Battery life: (Approx) 12 hrs (continuous gaming)
  • Approximate Size: 122 mm to 137 mm / 4.80″ to 5.39″ (Length) x 71 mm / 2.80″ (Width) x 42 mm / 1.65″ (Height)
  • Approximate Weight: 115 g / 0.25 lbs. (without battery) to 135 g / 0.29 lbs. (with battery)

I won’t lie — I’m not sold on the idea of a wireless mouse for gaming purposes. I suppose technology has come a long way, but I still don’t trust a wireless connection when I want to land that head shot.

What’s your verdict on wireless mice?

Gamers don’t use wireless mice. What a waste.

Wireless mice = Too many times, the batteries dies at a very bad moment… And they usually eat batteries like popcorn… It’s worse if I uses rechargeable batteries…

Maybe if they made a good ol’ wired version…

So far, my non-wireless Razor Death Adder 3500dpi do the job just fine, although I find one of the thumb button to be too high to be used effectively…

As a gamer I am not sold on using a wireless mouse. Some of them are very nice but like mentioned I don’t trust battery life. Rather use a wired mouse. I have a Razor Naga that gets used for certain games and mostly I use my old faithful MS Sidewinder mouse.

I’ve used wireless mice for years for gaming, never understood why people complain. They may run out once if you’re careless about how much power it has left, but any wireless mouse worth its salt will warn you a few days in advance before it dies, and after that you can just be aware that it’ll die soon. If it messes you up in one game, then so what? That’s what saves are for, and you can play a million more online games, not a big deal. I’ve used a logitech, too, and it worked flawlessly.

As for Razor, they make the best mice and headsets I’ve ever used, so I’m definitely considering getting this!

Eh if you’re reeeeally into competitive gaming, and have a great FPS rate for your game, you can tell the small amount of lag time between a wireless mouse going to its target and a wired mouse. I just prefer wired mice though, I don’t do competitive gaming or anything.

An excellent wireless mouse option for gaming is the Razer Mamba. If the battery starts to go dead, you simply connect the USB cable and keep playing!
