In thinking of a good way to review this mouse I realized a pattern. What I thought was my mobile mouse wish-list turned out to not be quite what I really wanted. The design of the Orochi had the features I didn't know I wanted.
It is a little larger than my previous mobile mouse, BUT it sits better in the hand and is more comfortable in long term use.
It isn't specifically ergonomically designed for right hand use, BUT the excellent ambidextrous design ends up feeling like it was custom designed for whatever hand you use.
It isn't rechargeable, BUT the AA batteries last longer.
The battery compartment is under the top buttons and not on the bottom, BUT it attaches via 3 magnets and is much easier to open/close.
Sure LEDs eat battery power, BUT they come on only when you move the mouse and go off when you stop (this is really fun to watch haha!) - note: you can also disable them for maximum battery life
There are a few key things to know when choosing this mouse
1) When not in wired mode the polling rate and dpi can not go as high. This is due to the bluetooth protocol design and not Razer's. They could have used a custom dongle like on the Mamba, but that would mean something else to carry and use to have wireless connectivity. Bluetooth was a good tradeoff. If you want ultimate performance, plug in the cable. You've got it in your included carrying case right?
2) The mouse's settings are stored on the mouse itself (very cool). If you want to reprogram them you have to plug in the cable. Again a tradeoff for bluetooth. Not bad, just something to be aware of. You can have 5 application profiles which change according to the game/app in use (or manually).
3) There are two buttons on each side. The ones on the opposite side from your thumb are not so easy to reach in the heat of action. This however allows for the ambidextrous design. By default these step through your pre-defined dpi sensitivity stages and are well designed to stay that way or use for actions you don't need as frequently.
I'm grasping to think of any real "con" against this mouse. If I had to say two things I would like changed it would be: Make it so the wheel can both ratchet and free-scroll (I got used to free scrolling when not gaming) and have the side buttons not recess quite so far as the bottom edge of the top matte part is kind of sharp.
If you are looking for a portable sized gaming mouse or have a Razer on your desktop already and want to take the experience with you pick one up!
I just got my Kabuto mouse surface and I noticed that the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse is a bit loose in the on position. This won't make it accidentally turn off, but it does make it jostle around a little on a surface that isn't perfectly flat (the kabuto is a bit bumpy from being rolled up in the package). This doesn't affect the mouse use or performance at all, just makes a little rattling noise when mousing.
The Razer Orochi is more expensive than your average Bluetooth mouse, and in the past I've dinged Razer when that price sticker seems to be inflated by hype. However, if you're willing to accept some compromises, the Orochi makes an excellent wireless mouse for just about any purpose except desktop gaming.
The Orochi is portable--it even comes with its own compartmented zip-up carrying case that contains room for the cord. It is larger than the Pro|Click I purchased for my daughter (and have also reviewed here). Its downward slope is quite nice even for my big hands, and I find the wheel to be generously large and knobby and the Lachesis-like buttons to be easy to click. If you're using this mouse for Bluetooth, pairing it is quite simple in Windows XP, Vista or 7 and doesn't require any drivers.
Unfortunately, Bluetooth and Drivers are the two areas where the Orochi's flaws begin to show. Razer's software and custom drivers allow you to do all the things you would do with any other gaming mouse: change the dpi, set hotkeys for the four side buttons, program macros, and more...if you don't use Bluetooth. Anything beyond the wheel and two buttons will require you to physically connect to a USB port. It is easy to attach the braided USB cable to the mouse, and that's a good thing because the only way you're going to be able to use any of the Orochi's extra features (or achieve a dpi above 2000) is if the unit is plugged in. Because it is a notebook mouse, the cord is only about three feet long. For portable gaming that's just fine--I actually use the Orochi as a desktop mouse and unfortunately my nearest USB port is just a few inches further than this.
I have heard that pushing updates to the Orochi's firmware is a bad idea, and I can certainly see why as that is what bricked my Copperhead (which Razer replaced). At this time (June 2011), my unit shipped with the latest firmware, so this step is unnecessary. I can see why higher dpi responsiveness might need you to plug in because Bluetooth has its limits, but the fact that no other features are available when you're wireless just seems to me to be the fault of poor software design, a criticism I've had with Razr for a while.
If you want a really slick-looking Bluetooth mouse, the Orochi will work great for general use. If you're looking for mobile gaming this is probably one of the best mice on the market--however, in any case you will be required to use the USB cable to get the most gain from the unit. Software is easy to use, but again only helps you when you're physically plugged in.
And for those who it may affect, this is definitely a smaller mouse. I have small-ish hands for a guy, and even I recognize this might be on the small side for me.
