Whenever you hear the name Razer, you know what to expect. It’s the name for quality-build, many featured tech accessories, but sometimes overpriced in users’ opinion. However, if you’d like to get a quality mouse with additional buttons, sometimes you need to break your bank, but not that much. When it comes to the mouse we’re talking about today, Razer Ouroboros features quite a lot of things, and a 4G laser 8200 DPI sensor is one of them. But wait, before you decide to leave, you need to realize this mouse launched back in 2012.
It’s true that it doesn’t have 16000 DPI like Corsair Glaive RGB or SteelSeries Rival 700, but you usually won’t be needing more than, let’s say, 4000-5000 DPI. Even for gaming, it could be overkill, but it’s a nice thing to know you have that possibility if you wish so. Remember, even Asus ROG Spatha has 8200 DPI of sensitivity, and it’s widely praised. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue our journey to find the rest of Razer Ouroboros specs. First of all, it offers top-notch customizability, but it’s quite bulky when you take a good look at. You can’t have it all sometimes, so if that’s what you’re looking for, it’s perfect.
It does look a bit too sharp and unconnected on a first glance, but just wait – flip the mouse over. That’s where the magic starts to happen and allows you to build a mouse for yourself. Yes, build a mouse. By loosening screws (and you do get a screwdriver in the package, don’t worry), you can customize the length of Razer Ouroboros. Take a look below to see how much of range it has when it comes to length change, and put your hands to good use.
You can customize the height of palm rest, swap out texture pads, and make it a perfect fit for your hand – just like you ordered it specifically for you. Another great thing, and one of the best features of Razer Ouroboros – it’s ambidextrous. If you aren’t aware of that term, that means the mouse is completely symmetrical, so both left-handed and right-handed people can use it all the same. We did find the gap for the palm rest quite uncomfortable, and no matter how you set it up, you might fill the void anyway. You can probably get used to that, but if that turns you off, check Razer’s other option – Razer DeathAdder Elite.
There’s a Synapse 2.0 compatibility as well, of course, which is standard for Razer peripherals. You can make a profile for your mouse, make use of every button, and there is 13 total (only 12 programmable, though). Then, go ahead and save the profile and upload it, so you can access it from any computer, no matter whether a Mac OS X or Windows. In the end, it’s important to talk about battery life, as Razer Ouroboros is essentially a wireless mouse, but wired one as well. That’s because you can plug it into USB when not in use, or in urgent situations when you need to continue gaming but the battery is empty. In the end, if that isn’t possible either, go ahead and exchange the AA battery manually.
