There is a new model at the top of the Razer Range, the Ouroboros. Wired and wireless, does it take the crown?

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.

this looks an awful lot like the R.A.T. mouse.

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?

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.

Oro bore us.

I find mice like these to be absolutely horrible. It's like some one couldn't be bothered so just threw loads of bits on a frame. It also looks terribly uncomfortable.

I'll stick with my 2007 CE Boomslang. About the only Razer mouse I would bother to own.

Waiting for the Mamba 2013, Got a feeling they will bring it out this year to go along with the 2013 Blackwidow range

Really like that mice - got one for myself.
Only had Logitech before that (the G700 to be precise) but i wanted to try something new and the razer hasn't dissappointed me - yet!

The price is hefty, yes - but combined with the brilliant razer-customer support I found it was worth it. Don't know about the Cyborg-Support though, but the green glow from the Ouroboros is looking need

I found their support to be pretty tragic if I'm honest.

My Boomslang developed what I thought was a fault. I contacted customer service who gleefully informed me that it was out of warranty. Hmm funny that they should keep tabs on what they are selling to whom.

Proved it was in warranty at which point they ignored me so I contacted them again. In the end they got stroppy and sent me a nasty email telling me to get hold of the retailer I bought it from and not to expect anything because they didn't have a replacement.

That's not good enough on a £130 mouse.

And then we come back to pricing. Who set these rules that £100+ for a mouse that cost peanuts to make was worth buying? It's pretty crazy if you ask me.

I also question the build quality as I have owned three Razer mice and they seem to wear very quickly. I had a 'budget' mouse from them (by budget I mean £38) and it fell to bits within six months after developing a terrible squeak when you clicked. Maybe it thought it was a literal mouse?

I'm done with spending out an arm and a leg on peripherals that are nothing but marketing hype. Give me a decent Dell keyboard any day with a Dell mouse.
