Razer Ouroboros Review – Wireless Gaming Mouse

Razer Ouroboros Review – Wireless Gaming Mouse


Hello I’m Caleb Pond and I’m very excited
to bring you the review of Razer’s latest mouse; the Razer Ouroboros. This mouse has
three things which – I think – are most notable about it and that is that it’s wireless,
the new sensor and its customizability. I’ll go ahead and talk about the sensor first. This sensor is a dual sensors – which means
it has two sensors that work together to get you extremely fast dpi that is 8200. This
is the fastest mouse on the market as far as I know. The second feature, wireless, is
absolutely fantastic. Don’t really need to talk much about that – it’s just wireless
which is awesome cause you know, how cables get a little tangled on your desk. That’s
not fun. And the third feature is customizability. Now, this mouse, it should be mentioned, is
kind of obviously response to the extremely successful series of mice – the Cyborg Rat
Series mouse and that mouse is known for being extremely customizable. I actually own one.
It’s a very good mouse. So I think we should probably go into how customizable it is. And
just how the various different parts work out. So, just like the rat – you can go and pull
this entire piece off. That comes via button which is right here, you should push that.
And this piece can also be changed, like the hith. And that dial right here I believe to
the right is lower and to the left is higher and that’s just how it rests on your palm
– that’s very useful. The only reason you really want to take this completely off is
because there’s actually a battery compartment here. I believe, yeah, you push up and you
can just pull it out and the battery’s not in because it comes with the case but it comes
with a rechargeable battery which you would use to plug it in. And, oh, the other piece
of customizability that you would use this for is the side pieces. I don’t know if
you can see very well but on the bottom of this mouse there are two lock buttons right
here. And these two lock buttons will basically allow you to unlock the side pieces. So let
me go ahead and switch one of those off. And by doing so, you can actually take off a piece
of the mouse. Now something that I really like about this are the magnets. These actually
come with magnets. I know these are fantastic, I don’t care what anybody says. And it just
makes it so its easy to take it off and put it on without even worrying if you’re fitting
it in properly. So that’s great. The one thing that I did notice about this
mouse with use, that I don’t think most of the people would notice and is not clearly
explained in the manual is that those lock buttons actually interfere with buttons you’d
use on the mouse. So, say, you have these both locks and you can’t use the button
which is right here so, like, this sidepiece if you push it all the way in is actually
a button. But unless you unlock it, it’s not actually, you’re not actually able to
push it – which I found to be really weird but it is cool that they have the extra buttons
there. So I think that now we should go into how the mouse is used. I’ll just go ahead
and put that on there real quick. This mouse is extremely comfortable. After using it for
extended periods of time, I really don’t have any problems with it. It’s very comfortable.
One thing to mention, while I was using it, every now and then the right mouse button
may squeak a bit. I don’t think that’s indicative of bad design – I just was spamming
it too much. Build quality – it’s extremely durable. I don’t see any reason for this
mouse to break. It seems like it will last an extremely long time. It is a bit lightweight
but it feels very sturdy. One thing that I did notice with extended use is that in wireless
mode – maybe one or twice a day there would be wireless interference and this would happen
if you have wifi or excessive amounts of other wireless devices in your house and honestly
for me, that was kind of a deal breaker, that I would be using my awesome wireless mouse
in the middle of a game and all of a sudden it would shut down for 20 seconds and become
nearly unusable. So if I actually wanted to game with this,
I would actually have to plug it in. There were no problems when I plugged it in, it
works just great. Past that, I mean its just a really awesome mouse. I think that, another
thing to mention, these are not only side pieces – there is a flat rubber side piece
that doesn’t actually have this little bottom part on it. And I like those alot – like I
use that rather than these and last thing to mention; scroll wheel absolutely fantastic.
One of the best scroll wheels I’ve seen. And it has several buttons. Let’s see – one,
two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, eight extra buttons not including the scroll
wheel and the right and left click. So, it’s a great mouse and I would highly recommend
it but honestly if you’re buying it for the wireless it may not be the best kind of
mouse cause like I said there’s issues with that and it just – it irritated me. This is
the problem with all wireless mice. I don’t think I’ve heard of one that doesn’t have
that problem but – you know – take it as you get it. Past that, I think that’s about
it. And we should go ahead and talk about the software. Okay, so here we go. This is the Razer Synapse
part of the Razer Ouroboros Review. So as you can see here, this is the Razer Synapse.
I’ve already done a video on this so I’m not gonna go into too much detail about it.
If you want to know more I will put a link on the screen that’ll go ahead and link
you towards when I talked about the Razer Synapse. So, first off, let’s just go over
to the buttons that can be customized. So, you have your right click, middle click, scroll
wheel, backwards and forwards and then you have the side buttons. There are these two
and 13. And on the left side there’s also these two and 10. Now the 10 and 13 buttons
are actually the side panels that I was talking about previously that you can push in for
buttons. Now you’ll notice something that you may not have seen before on Razer mice
and that is the sensitivity clutch. This is a feature that is specific to the Razer Ouroboros.
Basically when you hold the button when you bind this to down, it will reduce or technically
increase the sensitivity of your mouse to whatever you set the number to. So I could
be at 1200 and set it to 2400 or something like that. Now this is kind of a blatant rip
off of the Rat Mice feature – the headshot button and blatant rip off. But it’s still
a cool feature, so I can’t exactly hate ‘em for that. Past that, you know, regular
profile switching, using a program to switch the profiles. Let’s move on to performance.
So sensitivity can go all the way up to 8200. There’s also sensitivity stages. Basically
that’s just set it to whatever numbers you want and you can set a button to bump it up
one sensitivity stage or down one. And I’m not sure if this is been in any other mice
but this is also a feature that was part of the Rat Mice and it just kinda seems that
they’re trying to build the same mouse except better.
You have the acceleration. Normal polling rate all that stuff. You have lighting – which
is kind of – I mean it’s cool you can customize how bright it is, but honestly there’s not
really many lighting options on this. Now this is a very cool feature that is specific
to the Ouroboros that is the Mat customization. So I would say, I have the Razer Scarab and
I hit save and now my mouse is customized so it will track at the best possible way
on the mousepad I’m using one. If you are using one that is not specific to Razer you
can click on this “other” one and you hit add mat. Now currently, there’s nothing
here but I’m pretty sure you can download files that others have made that will customize
for the surface perfectly. Alternately you can hit the calibrate button and basically
this will just make you do certain things on the mousepad with your mouse like dragging
it to the right and it will customize for you. So overall, really cool feature. I haven’t
noticed if it makes it any better for tracking but overall, just the tracking of this mouse
is great. Last section, we can go to power – this is just when it enters sleep mode and
when the battery indicator lights up, also what your battery level is. So all that’s
pretty good. Last thing that I’d like to mention, and something that I just found out
like when I was using this programme. There’s actually an inter device button assignment
for these mice. I can change when – I can change the sensitivity of my other mice. I
can do all these various different things just by hitting a button on my Ouroboros and
it goes straight to my Naga. So I think, that is a really cool feature and definitely something
that I have absolutely no use for but I think is awesome. Maybe I’ll find a way to use
it but who knows. That has been everything I can think of to
talk about on the Synapse and interphase. So that’s about it. Thank you guys for watching.
