Razer Orochi Gaming Mouse Review
High quality gaming peripheral equipment is a speciality of Razer. In this article Razer brings us a new product, a first for its kind, the Razer Orochi mobile gaming mouse with both USB-2.0 and Bluetooth capability. Traditional mice suffer from poor mobility, often adding a huge lump inside of your laptop bags. Long wires and the need for a "perfect" surface often make setting up a hassle. Benchmark Reviews tests and inspects the Razer Orochi gaming mouse (model RZ01-00300100-R3U1) to see whether it really is the solution for gaming on the go that will revolutionize mobile gaming.
Razer has made its name in the gaming equipment business with quality, performance, and style. Razer recently released the Razer Mamba, a full-sized wireless gaming mouse with built in battery and charging dock, and the Razer Imperator, a mouse focusing on ergonomics. I consider the Razer Orochi to be something in between. Creating a mobile gaming mouse is often a paradox, as the drastic reduce in size limits functionality, performance, and often result in poor ergonomics. Long wires are also troublesome for gaming on the go. The Razer Orochi comes with Bluetooth wireless technology, solving one problem, but performance and comfort are what the small-form Razer Orochi gaming mouse will challenge.
About Razer, USA
Razer collaborates with gamers to develop, manufacture and market cutting-edge gaming peripherals utilizing proprietary technologies that give gamers the competitive edge. Razer reinvented the computer gaming industry by bringing this competitive edge to gamers when professional computer gaming was in its infancy. In the mid 90s, with the advent of networked gaming and competitive first-person-shooter (FPS) games, gamers found that their legacy peripherals were inhibiting rather than enhancing their gameplay. Razer revolutionized professional gaming with their stylish peripherals, offering performance and functionality beyond anything in the past. Razer products were made for gamers, by gamers.
