  1. So in my old thread I asked the difference between DeathAdder and Mamba, well I already have a DA, but I don't really want another DA so what other mouse is good, I play more minecraft pvp so I'll prefer a mouse that is good for that. I'm also looking at the new razor orochi

    Hi, welcome to Insider @Strafessss. It's hard to help by suggesting a mouse for you because you haven't provided enough information. What are your priorities? Your grip type? What type of system do you have? Orochi is more built for mobile or claw grip users. If you like the DA, I would suggest Mamba because of the familiar shape. I personally prefer the wireless Mamba (which isn't on the list).

    For Minecraft PvP, I wouldn't say a mouse like a Mamba or a Naga would be beneficial. For cool lights, I'd get the Diamondback or Mamba TE but if you want to take your mouse with you, buy the Orochi. Basically, if you can stay at home = Razer Mamba/Diamondback but if you're traveling with your mouse, buy an Orochi.

    I heard zowie eca1/2 is of similar shape if you want the DA shape, or mamba will do as well. Currently using DA tho. 4th year and still going..only the occasional double clicking issue bugs me sometimes

    Razer Naga 2014 (wired) and Bloody5 TR8 (just for fps games)
  6. @Raijin ok so sometimes I use claw grip, and sometimes I use palm grip. Do you have any other suggestions for any other mouse types?

    Love my Diamondback, but if you're used to the grip of the Deathadder and Mamba, this mouse is going to feel a little "flat" since it doesn't have that round ball shape of those two mice. The Diamondback easily has the nicest lighting of all the Razer mice, great vibrance, high brightness, seamless transitions between zones, etc. If you're a claw gripper or have really long fingers go with the Diamondback, if you're a palm gripper go with the Mamba/TE.

    No matter which of the two you get, don't forget to complement it with a FireFly, trust me they're gorgeous and they track perfectly. Not a single person has seen my mousepad and not commented on how impressive it looks.

    Well, which do you use more, heh?

    Also, what's your budget?

    The Orochi is really designed for mobile use, finger-tip gripping, and to be usable with both hands (ambidextrous). I'm not sure it would be the best choice for you.

    Take a look here to read up on form factors and try the 'Mouse Selector' tool: http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice

    You can also check out the 'Comparison Guide' on that page to easily compare different options.

  10. @Raijin i think I use claw grip more, and I don't have a budget

    @Raijin I did the 'Mouse Selector' and the mouse that came up at the end was the 'Razer Imperator' and what I read through it, it seemed to fit me perfectly, but is it a good mouse?

    That's quite an old mouse but it is still very good! The Orochi or Taipan might be the best fit for you in this case. If you have smaller hands, go for the Orochi.

    Well Strafessss, sorry about that! My mistake. I guess the Mouse Selector is a little outdated. The Imperator was discontinued and no longer available at the Razer Store. You can pick one up from eBay, but it's a bit outdated.

    As for whether it's a good mouse or not, I'm not sure because I've never used one before. It might be helpful to compare the physical size and weight of the Imperator to Razer's current mice:

    Imperator: 123mm L x 70mm W x 43mm H 139g
    Mamba: 128mm L x 70mm W x 42.5mm H 133g
    DeathAdder: 127mm L x 70mm W x 44mm H 105g
    Taipan: 124mm L x 63mm W x 35mm H 98g
    Diamondback: 125mm L x 60mm W x 30mm H 89g
    Orochi: 99mm L x 67mm W x 35mm H 68g

    As you can see, both the dimensions and weight of the Orochi are furthest away from the Imperator so it would take some getting used to. The Mamba and Deathadder are closest, but you said you don't want the DA again, so I'm still sticking with my original recommendation, which is the Mamba. If you are on a budget, the Tournament Edition costs less. It's up to date, similar in size to the Imperator & DA, and one of Razer's top of the line mice. I don't think you can go wrong with it.

    In the end it's up to you. Hope I helped you in some way. Stick with Razer and you wont be disappointed! That's my 2¢.

    Note: I'm no fanboy of muffin cuz no companies is the best at everything. It's like going to college and getting masters degree on everything, I dont think nobody done dat.

    Logitech MX Master (75$)
    • Elegant looking
    • More for casual things but still gaming is still pretty good
    • Good Mouse software
    • Bluetooth

    Hands-down overall the best for editing vid's or just the casual

    Logitech G602 (59$)
    • Comfortable
    • Wireless
    • Good mouse software
    • Simple
    Best wireless gaming mouse for the cheap price

    The Razer Ouroboros (99$)
    • Prolly coolest looking (it will get ladies instantly, they'll wanna touch it)
    • Uncomfortable (example: Hold a cube and thats the Ouroboros and then in the other hand hold sphere, thats an ergonomic mouse)
    • Stutter's sometimes...
    • Software is pretty bad
    • Not that mobile (it has wires no matter what)
    • Needs small receiver for wireless
    • Have to charge at the end of the day always

    ROG Spatha (?) not out yet but a good choice for MMO looks nice too... I'd research this mouse... actually I plan on getting this mouse when it comes out.

    The Razer Mamba Chroma (120$)
    • It's ergonomic,
    • 16,000DPI's (which will likely be not needed)
    • Click-Force Tech
    • Chroma
    • Best wireless performance
    • Software is still pretty bad
    Best mouse for gaming.

    Mionox Naos 7000(45$)

    • The most comfortable mouse ever (if right-handed and have big hands and use palm-grip mostly)
    • RGB lighting
    • Software is eh.
    • Simple
    Razer Orochi(86$)
    • Bluetooth
    • Small
    • Still pretty bad software
    • 7 month battery life.
    thats all the mice i've tried. Just some very basic info...

  14. @Raijin well you really helped, so what you have said, I ink I am now probably leaning more to the Mamba. Thanks, you really helped

    @Bubber so are you saying Mamba is best? Oh and what do you mean my pretty bad software

    This is a fair and truthful comparison. I agree with a lot of those points. Is the Mionix stuff good? I remember wanting try some of their stuff a couple years back but never got around to purchasing something. At the time I actually thought of them as Razer 'knock-offs'
