Razer Ouroboros

 

The Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse is highly configurable, with a dizzying array of options and features.

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.

The Razer Ouroboros is part of that special grade of elite gaming product that many will wish for, but probably won't buy. It's a superb mouse, and the array of customizable elements is staggering, and the performance is flawless, the Ouroboros is...

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.

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...

Razer Ouroboros Elite Gaming Mouse

 

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...

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

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...

Review: Razer Ouroboros

 

A lot of mice these days come with multiple parts to help adjust the ergonomics of your device. More often than not, it's a gimmick, leading to badly-shaped mice that are fiddly and uncomfortable; and, if that mouse is bad no matter what, it really is...

I switched from Corsair to the mouse as my home rodent - 'nuff said.

Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse

 

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.

Premium pricetag, but not much else.

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...
