Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, today announced the release of the Razer Ouroboros. Like its namesake, the elite gaming mouse can evolve without limit, with fully-customizable ergonomics that are adjustable for any hand size and grip style.

No two people have the same sized hands, and everyone grips his or her mouse differently. When researching form factor preferences for ambidextrous mice, Razer's team of ergonomic scientists and engineers discovered three key factors in design: the length of the mouse, the back arch and the grip profile. With this in mind, the Razer Ouroboros is designed for precision gaming, with an adjustable palm rest capable of moving up to 0.9 in. (20 mm), suitable for people of varying hand sizes.





The Ouroboros additionally boasts two interchangeable side panels for altering the footprint of the mouse to suit claw, palm or hybrid grip styles, and it has an adjustable back tilt angle to ensure palm support for gaming comfort and endurance. Its enhanced sensor technology is capable of up to 8200 dpi, and a dedicated, built-in dpi clutch trigger button ensures players can achieve pinpoint precision when needed. Powered by a single rechargeable AA battery, the Razer Ouroboros ensures a minimum of 12 hrs. of drag-free, lag-less play.

Adding even more versatility to the mix, Razer has also included an upgraded, award-winning 4G Dual Sensor System, and gaming-grade, 1 ms wireless technology, providing the option for wired or wireless use.

"Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance," said Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We are proud to introduce it as Razer's first gaming mouse that features optimized, customizable, ambidextrous ergonomics that better fit the curvature of any and every hand size and personal grip style by delivering ultimate comfort, control, power and built-in intelligence to ascend to gaming immortality."

About Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse:
The Razer Ouroboros ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse is designed for both right- and left-handed gamers. It offers fully customizable ergonomics and a fit for every hand size—big or small—by allowing adjustment of the arched palm rest and back. Two interchangeable side panels ensure you're using your preferred grip style at all times. Game for hours-on-end while minimizing fatigue and maximizing comfort.

Razer's highly advanced 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System powers the mouse. This gaming-grade mouse sensor combines a laser and an optical sensor to enhance tracking precision and detect surfaces 10 times faster than previous generation sensors. Its all-new dpi clutch lets you temporarily reduce or increase the dpi as you game, so you can go from high-sensitivity assault to more measured sniper, then back to assault again, as needed.

The Razer Ouroboros also features an ultra-low 1 ms latency wireless play that is as responsive and precise as when it is corded. You're as free to swipe and destroy as your play style dictates.

U.S. $129.99 / EU €129.99

Ouch at the price, especially at the $1=€1. That's a $160 mouse for the folks across the pond. I paid that much for my keyboard, but I don't expect a mouse to last me 10+ years.

The Rat 7 does the same for $30 less to begin with and up to $60 when on sale :shadedshu why copy a design only to charge more for it (assuming your average person doesn't care about wireless enough to be all omg Rat 9 :roll: )

Though I guess I do have to give them credit for it being ambidextrous.

Must go through mice fast then. Had both my Logitech MX500 and 518 for about a decade or more now. Still work fine.

They don't make them like they used to. I have an old ball mouse with two buttons that's probably 12 years old or so, still works. Nothing I've bought from Razer has lasted more than a year. My current mouse is a ~3 year old Logitech I keep falling back on when something newer breaks.

Yeah it definitely has the R.A.T. look and style with the customization. I'd still like to try it out though since I don't really love the feel of the RAT, but $130 is expensive. I'll have to wait and find it cheaper (forums or eBay)

it looks nice with the back and green. Greens my fav so it got me there lol. It has high dpi which is a must for me but that price is soo OUCH. I don't see spending over $60 for a mouse worth it. Soo many good ones at the price range. I will keep an eye out for this one to ever catch it on sale or when price possibly drops and I know thats a ways away since its not even released yet.

If Lamborghini was Apple, they'd probably sue Razor for copying their Reventon design.
That's the first thing that popped into my head,... Lamborgini mouse? Can I get it in red/yellow? ;)

Overpriced for sure.

Price is dumb high.. No mouse should cost that much ever.. a low end gpu maybe but for a mouse to think it has a right to step into that price bracket is just dumb..
I paid 60 for my razer mouse and I think that is a bit high.
It's a couple buttons in some plastic, that's it.. Other people made the software and the hardware that recognizes it.. Mice are very simple..

EDIT: LMAO 12 hours of useage til the battery dies..
"Serious" gamers would be broke in battery costs.. XD
Yea yea "rechargable" those always work well.. NOT..
