Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse - Ergonomic and downright cool looking gaming mouse.
 

The customization possibilities are very impressive, and technically the mouse should be suitable for wide range of people. After a bit of tuning the mouse I found the optimal settings for my hand. Overall the mouse feels good in hand, and for example the thumb rest is great. I noticed that in my hand the rear panel's corner feels uncomfortable against my hand, because the corner is a bit sharp. I'm also missing the soft-touch coating, which would feel a lot more comfortable than the hard plastic.

Because the mouse is wireless, it needs a battery, and therefore it's not particularly light mouse. Personally I like the weight of the mouse, but this is a matter of opinion, so you should select the mouse by your preferences.

The mouse's sensors work flawlessly on wide range of surfaces. I primarily use a hard plastic mousepad, but I also tried the mouse against the sofa and chair, and there were no problems.

Some gamers claim that wireless mice are unusable for gaming because of the delay they have, but I didn't notice any delay whatsoever. The delay should be 1 ms, so there shouldn't be any notable difference whether the mouse is wired or not.

    Razer Ouroboros is a good choise for a person, who wants his mouse wirelessly and with a good performance. The biggest problem with the mouse is the price, which is about 120 euros. Also the side panel buttons are way too stiff and the software has some issues.

    Even though the mouse has good customization capabilities, I still strongly recommend to try the mouse in your hand before buying it. In my hand the rear panel's edge feels uncomfortable no matter how I adjust the arch.
