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

Not Worth Your Time


This mouse is now currently sitting in a box, waiting to be recycled. Their Customer Support is negligent in not exactly knowing how to support their own products, and it took my own research and digging to figure out that disconnecting my DVD-ROM was...

Ambidextrous mouse, large amount of configuration available, fairly comfortable to use

Synapse software is absolute garbage, integrates horribly with the mouse and forces itself to be there in order to control any settings on your mouse. Mouse only works with Windows 8.1 if you disconnect your DVD-ROM drive (Supposedly they are working...

Razer is my go-to brand when it comes to gaming peripherals and I have to say they did not disappoint me with this mouse. Every penny toward this mouse was worth it. The responsiveness of the mouse and the quick DPI adjustments are just two things that...

Adjustable ; Ambidextrous ; Beautiful


Consumer review by:



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

Consumer review by:

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:
