Razer Orochi and Kabuto Review

The Package & Closer Examination »


Razer's recent foray into the world of laptop gaming has definitely sparked some interesting products. Today we will be taking a look at both the Razer Orochi which is a laptop gaming mouse capable of being used wirelessly via Bluetooth and in a more conventional fashion with a cable, much like the Razer Mamba. Along with the release of the Orochi, Razer is also launching a slim gaming grade mouse mat to go with the mouse, both are available at Razer's website.
