Razer Orochi 2015 Luxury Laptop Gaming Mouse (Wired & Wireless)

Final Thoughts & Conclusion

The Razer Orochi provides unheard of precision in laptop mice and does it in a compact travel size. The 8200 DPI 4G laser puts you on target accurately and fast. InAward_Silver the most demanding of situations you can use the wired mode with 1000 Hz Ultra Polling and when just passing time use the Bluetooth mode with 125 Hz Ultrapolling..The response time wired is 1 ms and Bluetooth 8ms and 7 thousandths of a second isn’t a lot of lag time but lag time adds up considering the normal Wi-Fi connection of most laptops and ping time to the servers so every millisecond counts when you’re searching for that head shot or in sneak mode trying not to trigger an un-defeatable monsters attack.

The small 3.9″ long form of the Orochi takes a little getting used to and unless you turn of the side keys it’s fairly easy to hit one while gaming as you are locked into clench mode on the Orochi but that’s the case with all laptop mice. The clinch method is a little more tiring and the Orochi takes a little getting used to for our hands. The Teflon feet on the Orochi and indeed all mice need to have rounded edges and not pointed edges which can grab and cause the feet to peel away so it’s best to make sure there isn’t anything around to grab the feet. A tapered foot that seats into a raised plastic seat would prevent peeling.

Overall Razer did an excellent job in re-releasing the Orochi the sensor is more precise, battery life longer and they added Chroma while extending hte battery life which is quite a feat. Having 70 hours of continuous gaming on one set of batteries is a nice feature but in most cases we found using wired mode was just as easy as using Bluetooth. Unless you are  putting the laptop on the desk and gaming from a chair the tail on the mouse is long enough that you won’t need the wireless feature.

The clicking mechanism on the Orochi is crisp and provides tactile feedback, the scroll wheel scrolls smoothly and is likely the most usable of extra buttons so assign your favorite secondary attack to the scroll wheel and anything else to the back button on the side. The front button gets clicked by accident but that’s just learning curve. You really can’t ask for more in a small for factor mouse and on top of its mousing duties it makes for a good conversation starter. Not all eyes will be on the whiteboard at the meeting some will be lusting after your Razer Orochi luxury gaming mouse.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.

  1. Nice review, but I for one really need to know about the BT use.

    Does this new Razer Orochi 2015/2016 go into automatic off mode (what they call standby) when left unused for like 1-2 minutes?

    Coming from Logitech I was really disappointed about the Razer Orochi 2013 low battery life AND the automatic off mode after 1-2 minutes. Moving the mouse doesn’t even wake it up you have to click a button!

  2. Indications are that you need to manually turn off the Orochi to save batteries when you are finished. Some PC and Laptops will auto off bluetooth on their own so you would need to make sure that Bluetooth sleep is set to never.

    The battery life on a true gaming mouse in wireless mode with 125Hz ultra-polling and Synapse is going to be less than that of a desktop work oriented mouse. You won’t get the same battery life as a work mouse. Typical use of the Orochi is 70 hours continuous. The Orochi also comes with a USB cord so try using the wired mode when close enough to the USB port.

    In the end gaming accessories use more power to give you a gaming edge and it’s not just Razer it’s all gaming accessories.

  3. I had one, don’t recommend it, very laggy and heavy in wireless mode. Wired works good, but you don’t want to use it wired and wireless since it implies adapt to 2 mouses and sensitivities totally different.
    Wireless the battery doesn’t last more than a week of normal usage.
