If you want a mouse that can be adjusted to fit your hand, then the only place you’ve been able to turn to is the MadCatz R.A.T. series. However, soon there will be another contender on the market. Razer has announced the new Ouroboros Gaming Mouse which promises a fully-customizable experience.
There are three ways that you can physically customize the Ouroboros. First, the length can be altered by sliding the back panel to fit your hand. Next, you can take that same panel and adjust the angle it sits at, for maximum comfort. Finally, there are two sets of side panels that can be swapped out. There are the standard, narrow sides, or the winged panels.
The mouse is designed to be ambidextrous, so that the south paws aren’t left out in the cold. You’ll also find a clutch trigger that will temporarily modify the DPI when pressed. The Ouroboros is outfitted with both a laser and optical sensor, for an ultra-precise 8200DPI. While the combined sensors might help with accuracy, I doubt many people will use a setting that high.
As for the connection, Razer is giving you the choice between wired and wireless. If you choose wireless, you will only need a single AA battery (which is included), and it will last up to 12 hours. If you run out of juice, just pop in another battery, or plugging in the USB cable. When not in use, you can set the mouse on the included dock, where it will recharge your battery.
The Razer Ouroboros releases sometime in Q4 of this year for $130. That puts it on par with the wireless R.A.T. 9, which offers similar customizable features.
