Razer Ouroboros


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.

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

Pricey. Complicated

Razer's snake-centric product names get recursive with the Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse, a reference to the alchemical symbol of a snake eating its own tail. Despite the funky name, the Ouroboros is the new apex predator in Razer's menagerie of snakes...

Razer Ouroboros Review: An expensive love letter to lefty mice lovers


The Razer Ouroboros is kind of hard to say and costs $150, but is readily customizable, lefty-friendly, and performs well. And also it's gorgeous.

Ambidextrous design caters to lefties and everyone else ; Equally capable as a wired or wireless mouse

Rather pricey ; Screwdriver required for tweaking the design

Razer's Ouroboros gaming mouse is kind of hard to say and costs $150, but is readily customizable, lefty-friendly, and performs well. Also, it’s gorgeous.

Love the Razer Ouroboros. I was planning on buying a R.A.T. but changed my mind. Mouse is adjustable to my small hands. It also works well with the Synapse 2.0 software that Razer provides

Was a little difficult for my computer to sense at first. Had to uninstall and re-install the software for it to sense the mouse

Terrible support and a bricked device


Great for big hands, responsive

Short battery life, bricked receiver ; The wireless receiver came unplugged during gameplay and I contacted razer support. After waiting 2 days for a specialist I was told it needed a firmware update, something I had already tried ; I went through it...

Expensive but well worth the price


While the price is a little steep for a gaming mouse, it's well worth the money. It comes in a really cool box that almost makes one think that it's for display purposes only, but to actually get it back in there, you need to reset all the physical...

Cool design ; On the fly DPI change buttons ; Ability to turn two side rests to buttons ; Customization a plenty ; Scroll wheel is satisfying ; Easy to change from wireless to wired mouse ; Easy to change palm rest and in multiple ways

Takes a moment to be used again when lifted up and put back down ; The side rest/buttons are a little hard to push when active ; Synapse 2.0 doesn't allow local saving of mouse set up

Consumer review by:



ergonomic. and adjustable for any hand and great speeds and dpi and I like the braided cord

wireless stopped working after 2nd weeks so I've been using it wired I didn't feel like returning it... this is the second mouse from razor that I have had wireless issues with... and yes software is updated

Its okay...


I'm not writing this complaining about synapse because we all know its not a good program. I didn't have that much trouble with it but that doesn't mean it doesn't take up more processing power than it should. I haven't even had the mouse a month and...

Cool looking ; Wireless doesn't have lag from what I see ; Decently light/can be heavy with battery ; Okay customization

Way too expensive for what you get ; Can't change colors like the Mamba or Naga Epic ; Side buttons don't feel that great ; Mouse wheel feels like it is mounted wrong ; Left AND right mouse clicks start to squeak after 2 days of using it ; The "thumb"...

King of the battlefield


I love having a powerful mouse that makes a powerful statement as well. It looks bold, performs like a boss, and shows I'm ready to jump into the battlefield with all guns loaded. I was a little weary about the price at first, but I can now see that it...

This is a lovely mouse. Absolutely the best moues I've owned. I've loved it ever since the second I got my hands on it. I wouldn't recommend any other mouse over this one ; For starters, it's extremely comfortable and customizable - not as customizable...

Most of the cons I have to state about this mouse are towards Razer Synapse. Although it hasn’t given me too much trouble, there have been a few hiccups. The first one being somewhat occasional DPI settings being wrong – what I mean is that, sometimes...
