Pros -Wired / Wireless option, swaps between these flawlessly.
-More DPI than I'll ever use.
-Bluetooth works perfectly.
-I have fairly big hands, and can fit my entire hand on the mouse; perfect shape.
-Onboard memory for settings
Cons -A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
-The buttons on the right side are hard to reach.
-The 1000Hz polling rate can only be used in wired mode, but that's understandable as bluetooth is too latent to keep up with it.
Summary If it were a little bigger, I'd consider using it as my desktop mouse; it's that good! I don't have any experience with Razer desktop mouses (my last two were Logitech G5 and G500), but I can say that this mouse definitely outperforms the G5. It was actually the reason I chose to upgrade to the G500 desktop mouse, I was missing the >2000dpi and 1000Hz polling rate features. Highly recommended for mobile gamers and power users with cat-like reflexes.
Pros Love the mouse, beautiful controls, and very compact. Love the new customizable 2.0 software.
Cons I am having some issues when I use different Macros, and I usually run into the issue when 2 or more Macros are set, but when I just have one set, there are no issues. The software runs fine though, no noticeable issues other than the Macros.
Summary I am running a non-Intel PowerMac G5, OSX 10.5.8 Leopard, and have loaded the new 2.0 Razer software for the Orochi, as well as updated the Mouse?s firmware to 1.06 via Windows. It may be the age of my Mac that's the issue, but not sure. So far I'm the only one I've heard of that's been having problems. Overall though, I was using the Apple Magic Mouse just prior to this Orochi, and hands down I would much more prefer the Orochi. I do miss the touch sensitive surface of the Magic Mouse, as well as the side scrolling, but overall the Razer Orochi is superbly better in tracking, accuracy and overall functionality. Good job Razer on a very successful BT Mouse
Pros Great performance even comparing to regular wireless mouse (I was using AnywhereMX), very responsive. The known "lag" issue was minimized to only 0.5-1s in my experience with this mouse, which is very unnoticeable.
Cons The only thing I found missing is left/right scroll.
Summary Excellent mouse!!!
"Great Mobile Mouse"on by joech26
Pros - Wire / Wireless modes
- Great looking
- Comfort enough for small mouse
- Build-in memory for settings
Cons - A little small
- No Bluetooth dongle included for those who don't have adapters
- a little heavy with 2 AA batteries for wireless mode
- Bluetooth enter sleep in 3 sec without any activities
- a little lag when the mouse wake up
Summary I had used Microsoft Mini Explorer and Logitech anywhere mx and none of them can compare to this one.
Mini explorer has a large dongle which is annoying for laptop users
Anywhere MX is very uncomfort
The wake up lag is not a problem for normal use.
For the gaming part is depending on how you play, but you can always use wire mode for the best performance.
Pros High sensitivey, easy setup, on the fly dpi adjustment. This is my first "true" gaming mouse and I always thought they were way overpriced for what they are. I was wrong, they really work better especially in FPS, and I love my Razer Orochi!
Cons To really get the best gaming response you need to run it wired. Though it is wireless, you lose half of its quality using as bluetooth.
Summary I've spent about a month using this mouse and my gameplay has improved by 80% or more because of it! I think that speaks for itself. I thought my character jumping or "glitching" was due to the program or internet connection and I now know it was my mouse all along. If you're looking for a general bluetooth mouse, this is to much. If you're looking for a top quality bluetooth gaming mouse that offers double the precision wired, you can't go wrong here, I LOVE IT!! I'm now buying a razer mamba because I like the orochi so much....we'll see if its as good!!
