The fact that this mouse costs nearly as much, or maybe even as much as a mechanical keyboard is quite unsavory.
At least you can justify the purchase of a mechanical keyboard.

This mouse has an inherent design flaw. It has skates on the front and the sides, but no rear skate, causing the mouse to tilt back and drag on the pad. This is an remarkably flawed design.

I disagree. The side skates go all the way to the back of the mouse. It also has interchangeable parts. It's neat but more than I want to spend on a mouse. Logitech G5 for life... haha

I'm not assuming that this is a flaw. This has already been commented on by testers. It is a noted design flaw.

Jesus, Razer has gone mad with their prices lately. I'm still using my Diamondback 3G but was wondering what a left ergonomic mouse would cost these days, I sure hope they don't start eliminating their other cheaper alternatives or I'll have to change brand in the future.

[citation][nom]agnickolov[/nom]Anybody else noticing that the graphic design on the mouse has nothing to do with its name? An ouroboros is a ring consisting of a snake that is swallowing its tail. Read up on its meaning on Wikipedia for example:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros[/citation]

I concede to the poster about the design flaw. The price is a flaw too. So maybe naming it "ouroboros" foretold of a device that's biting its own ass?

The logo isn't an Ouroboros logo. It's Razer's logo. Read up on its meaning on Wikipedia for example:

Ouroboros? I wonder if Razer got this naming inspiration after playing a few rounds of Marvel vs. Capcom 1/2/3 (ahem, Strider Hiryu...).....

I actually have one, and I'm not very happy. None of the problems mentioned above are actually issues, what is an issue is the buggy Synapse software/driver.

There is a DPI clutch button (you can't see it, it's on the side right where your thumb rests) and it doesn't work well at all. It's supposed to be a "press and hold" feature to reduce the DPI, but sometimes when you release the DPI doesn't go back up, and sometimes it just sits there and freezes for a couple of seconds, then works again. It's not a wireless issue either as it doesn't happen if you don't use the button.

Furthermore, the mouse displays on the screen the DPI change when holding/releasing that button. Randomly it will move from the right side of the screen to the very bottom left. You can't move it and you can't turn it off either.

Perhaps a software update down the road will make this guy live up to expectations, but their software is already bloated and slow.

I'm about to put mine on Ebay. I'm sure someone out there will love it. For the time being I'm happy with my Roccat Kova+ No DPI clutch, but I'll live.
