    Hey guys, I'm looking to get a new mouse and I really like the Razer mouses. Plus, I think it will go well with my new Blade.

    I want one that's simple, not a ton of buttons, preferably wireless. I won't be using it all the time on the go, only when I'm at my desk in my dorm or at home. So for that, I guess it's okay if it isn't wireless. I also don't really want to spend over $100 on a mouse..

    What are your recommendations? I thought the Taipan and the Orachi looked like the best candidates. My concern with the Orachi would be it using my Blade's battery life with bluetooth.

    Thanks guys!

    I have the Orochi and I feel like it's kind of small for my hand. I've never tried the Taipan so I can't really say much about it

    if you don't mind wired, I'd suggest going with the Deathadder. Easily my favorite mouse and everyone I know who has used it loves it.

    The Taipan is a very good simple mouse, but it is wired. Orachi is a good mouse for gaming on the go, if you really want a wireless one. Having bluetooth on, on your computer will only drain the battery a tiny bit faster, but not by much. You said you arent gaming on the go a lot though, so I would suggest the deathadder. Its wired, very simple, not many buttons, and the sensor on it is amazing. It has won the best mouse a bunch of different times, so I would personally suggest that one. I have 2 of them, one of them which I have had for 9 years so they are really well built as well.

    @Vivulux @Katana I want simple because I don't need a "gaming" mouse, I don't use mouse buttons and mouse macros, and I want it to be comfortable for normal work use with the computer.

    I also read about the deathadder, it seemed like a good candidate. 9 years? That's insane haha. Deathadder vs Taipan? And, I really don't mind wired I guess.

    Also, thanks for the input!

    i've had a taipan for the last couple years at work, and i really like it. i have an orochi for my laptop and a diamondback at home for gaming as well. the orochi is fine if you need to bring it on the road a lot, but i definitely prefer the taipan for my daily work at the office.

    Deathadder would be the go to for me, i prefer the ergonomics of the deathadder as it gives me a very comfortable grip, its big enough that my hand dont have to cringe while i use it.

    I use my naga to play lol and any other time and most other games the deathadder works best for me, p.s looks good with the firefly

    In that case, the new Abyssus V2

    I think there is no 'best mouse to get'. It really depends on what grip you have and what design or features (e.g wireless) you like the most.

    both mice are great I prefer the deathadder but the taipan is pretty great as well

    So the taipain, deathadder, or abyssus v2. They all look nice, and the abyssus v2 is definitely the least expensive. I haven't heard anything about it, what do people think of it?

    The only wireless mouse I know that Razer makes is the Mamba but that one is pretty expensive so if you want something cheap go for the Deathadder or the Taipan

    theres also the orochi and the naga epic but the only true wireless is the orochi as it does not have a dock that needs to be plugged in

    After my almost one year of being apart of the Razer community I never actually realized that the Orochi existed so that is why I said the mamba instead of it.

    I used Taipan for everything, and i can say, its so comfortable. but, its wired

    for Orochi, i never used it before, some people says it to small, if you have large hand like mine, you must think it again. If you want wireless razer mice, it's hard to choose i think. razer wireless line up its Mamba 4G, Orochi and Mamba TE

    Try Logitech mouse, they have many great wireless mouse to pick :D

    I think I have kind of large hands (not to sound like Donald Trump), so can anyone with larger hands say how they like the orochi?

    My concern is primarily the battery life of my with Bluetooth on and connected to a device. I've noticed that I get a decent amount more battery life when I have Bluetooth off.

    I think so far the Taipan is value for money. At least the sensor doesn't get funny after a while like the Mamba...
