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.

Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse Review


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...

Consumer review by: James T. (

Excellent, comfortable mouse


Overall, I love this mouse. It has a couple issues, for sure, but I'd still recommend it to anyone looking for a great gaming mouse. I purchased it together with a Razer Firefly mouse mat and the combination is fantastic. I was looking to replace an...

- Fantastic customization options in the software settings: DPI levels, button actions, etc are all very easy to change even on a per-game basis. - Decent customization options for the hardware itself. Almost any grip style will feel at home on this...

- If you don't leave your PC on at night, or have an always-on USB port, it can be difficult to keep the mouse charged. The battery life is usually good enough for a full day of gaming, but you definitely want to make sure you put it on the dock while...
