I like them. Next k/b and mouse for me I reckon, pending reviews.
Took Razer long enough. The Ouroboros is just their answer to the R.A.T series. Specifically; the R.A.T9.
Saw this and I really like the look of this. Will wait till yoyo gets to see how it feels in the hand
I was really rather hoping for some revolution with the BlackWidow, this appears to be a fairly trivial evolution at best. I mean, it looks exactly the same as the current model
I'd love a hands on with one of these -- this, and the RAT, look incredibly uncomfortable though, like gaming with a pineapple.
I found the RAT to be very uncomfortable, depends on your hand size!
Who else thought of Red Dwarf when they saw the name?!
i swear by my Qpad mks80
God I hate razer. Low quality at a high price
At least they are making an effort to improve by offering a gaming keyboard with more than 2KRO and a tenkeyless is much better for gaming for mouse position, took them long enough. Still, there are so many better options out there, some at lower cost.
@The_Beast. Razer makes excellent gear for a decent price, they are very good at understanding the gaming market and creating products that gamers want. That is such a rare combination, dont be a hater
It's a modular mouse. With interchangable thumb and pinkie grips, as well as wireless, rechargeable batteries and-Wait a minute. This sounds a lot like the R.A.T9 I have.
Admittedly; The pinkie and thumb grips being held on with Magnets rather than Allen bolts is probably a nicer touch, but I know those grips are not going to move on my RAT, can Razer assure the same?
I love the way they just stuck an AA battery in there. Cyborg/Saiitek go to all the trouble of making a dedicated, roughly AA sized Li-Ion battery, and a housing to go into the mouse (Plus that awesome little receiver/charging stand). Razer just stick in a couple of contacts and say "Fork out for AA's, kids!"
For longevity, maybe, but will a Razer product really outlive the lifespan of the average Rechargeable Battery?
so you're telling me gamers want a 8200 dpi mouse (with more lights than a christmas tree...)
Haha...Razer playing catchup with Saitek.....go figure
I saw that picture, then looked at my RAT 7. I then read the specs, then recalled the specs for my RAT7. I believe Razer have bought some RAT 9's for wholesale and stuck some green LEDs on them.
But in all seriousness: it's frighteningly similar. The same two side buttons, the same split left and right buttons with the flat scroll wheel in the center, a similar shaped palm rest that moves the same way (but with added tilt!) and swappable side pieces exactly like the RAT. All that's missing is the side scroll wheel and "sniper" button.
As for the keyboards... meh? Cool beans getting more mechs into the common market, but it's missing a few basic things. 1000MHz ultrapolling and 10 key roll over? Yeah, sure, it'll work just fine. Good luck pressing more than 10 keys at once, honestly. But why not just use PS/2 and have a hardware interrupt with no polling and unlimited rollover and not have to worry about it? Also, why just blue and brown switches? It's odd that they're making GAMERZ keyboards but don't offer the stereotypical gaming switches of red and black.
