Looking for a traditional buttoned Bluetooth mouse for your iMac or MacBook? Is Apple’s Magic Mouse not your cup of tea?
This is the 2013 Razor Orochi.
On the outside it’s nearly identical to its predecessor, the only real difference is green LEDs instead of blue. On the inside it’s a new beast; sporting Bluetooth 3.0 and a new 4G dual laser. Also new is the ability to use all the buttons and I highly recommend using Better Touch Tool to take full advantage of those extra buttons. As with the previous Orochi a braided USB cable is included, as is a small zippered carrying pouch.
When cordless power is supplied via two AA batteries and Razer claims 30 hours of continuos or one month of normal use. I use Powerex 2700 NiMH AA batteries and charge them about once a week and I’m a heavy mouse user.
Tracking and response time were excellent so now Apple users finally have a
good great buttoned Bluetooth mouse easily the best currently available*.
Highly recommended, especially when paired with Better Touch Tool.
*Logitech’s Bluetooth 5500 Revolution MX mouse but it only came bundled with a keyboard. Although I never had a chance to test it, I do like the ergonomics of its not Bluetooth brother but it’s an older Bluetooth 2.0 design and isn’t officially OSX supported.
