Razer Ouroboros PC mouse announced

Razer has made more than its share of high end PC mouse products, and today the company unveiled its newest device in that genre. The Razer Ouroboros wireless mouse not only has a high sensitivity rating but also has a number of customizable features.

The Ouroboros mouse is ambidextrous in design, which should make left handed PC users happy. In addition, the mouse can be physically adjusted lenghtwise (up to 0.9 inches) along with its back arch; this should allow people to adjust the mouse in order to create the best feeling in their hand.

There are also two types of side panels available for the Ouroboros, which can be interchanged. This will, in theory, allow the mouse to give users the best contact with their fingers. There are a total of 11 programmable buttons on the mouse, all of which can be customized with the included software.

Like most of Razer's PC mouse products, the sensitivity of the Ouroboros can be adjusted on the fly, up to 8200 DPI with its combo laser and optical sensor setup. There's even a DPI clutch trigger, which can quickly increase or decrease the sensitivity of the mouse.

The included rechargeable AA battery should be good enough for 12 hours of gaming, according to Razer but all of this won't come cheap. The company will sell the Ouroboros for $129.99 when it is released in the fourth quarter of 2012.

"... rechargeable AA battery should be good enough for 12 hours of gaming ..."

my logitech 55x battery lasted 18 months. but i'm sure razor builts a gadzillions more features into their ourobollock to justify the blood-sucking battery consumption. /sarcasm off

I had 3 Razer mice. They work very well... until they stop working

It may be badluck, but 3 in 3 looks bad. I'm now using my 5 years old MX518 (best mouse ever made) and I'm happy

Razer's "copy" looks a lot more pleasing to the eyes. And competition is always a good welcome to the market.

Yeah, but I'm pointing out who came first with the form factor and customization options, and that was the RAT mouse.

According to its name, this mouse will eat its tail until it consumes itself out of existence. I think I'll pass...

I hope the buttons don't break like the other 3 Razer mouses I've owned.

Also look at the little pad feet on this before you buy it - Razer tends to make them very small and they wear down and need replacing all the time.

Haha this. The build quality of Razer mice tends to be slightly terrible in my experience.

I was sent both an Imperator and a first generation Mamba for review and here were the problems:

The Imperator's wire decided to break after a week which I had to fix myself
The Mamba's scroll wheel had this VERY annoying squeak (a common problem with the first gen Mamba if I remember), which put me in the very difficult position of taking a fairly expensive mouse apart and oiling the scroll wheel.

However what is posted above about Razer's wireless mice is correct. They do perform very well and the battery lasted quite abit over what it was advertised

Just bought a Naga 2012, I'm happy with that. Customization is interesting, but Razer has proven before that if you make the mouse with ergo in mind from the start, it's unnecessary.

It can also be wired. Attach the cable and that's it. Just like Razer Mamba.

Exactly. I typically leave my Mamba plugged in but when I game online I tend to use it wirelessly, as the mouse is so sensitive I find the cord keeps moving the mouse if you take your hand off it.

Razer's wireless gaming mice perform as well as their wired mice, which is very impressive.
