Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse

Up Close

As we explained in our Ares II review, we enjoy a sense of occasion when opening something at the very top end of what is available. The Ouroboros definitely provides that. Coming in a seriously sturdy case with the Razer logo on top, when you open it you're presented with everything neatly laid out. We need to be clear though this is limited edition press packaging, sadly the retail versions will not get sent out like this. The cut-outs for each part are impossibly precise, as we'd expect from such a premium model. From left to right is the cable, battery, changeable side panels, mouse, USB thumbstick with manual and drivers, receiver, right panels and the charger.

The cable is used for charging, or if you prefer the precision of a wired arrangement the Ouroboros can be plugged in directly. As our review sample was pre-production we're not sure if everyone will get the USB stick with the drivers and manual on it, but we absolutely love it. Very handy.

The receiver and charger is reminiscent of the one we saw from Gigabyte with their Aivia. The Ouroboros just sits on it perfectly and charges via the prongs. 

Here it is in all its glory. The gap in the middle is definitely going to split opinion. Behind the scroll-wheel is the LED indicator for the battery level.

So much of the Ouroboros is adjustable. Firstly, the rear portion can slide to and fro for those who have different sized hands (which will be all of us). On the left it is as closed as possible and on the right as stretched as it can be. As we said above the gap will something that will divide opinion, and certainly when it's extended it doesn't look good in our opinion.

I've been looking forward to this review

Now that I know the mouse is good, I think i'm going to get one.
I'm going to wait for it to drop in price first though, £115 is too much for a mouse. £80 is the highest i'm willing to go, seen as you can get a R.A.T 9 for around £70 - £80, which is just as customizable.Quote

It really does look like the R.A.T 9 but without a bunch of optional adjustments and it costs more. Why not just get the Cyborg?Quote

I like the look of the Ouroboros more than the R.A.T, i'm happy with my Razer Imperator at the moment though, so i'm in no rush to buy one.
I'll just wait till they drop in price or a better mouse is released.Quote
