Just in case you weren’t familiar with the original Orochi notebook gaming mouse that Razer put out a couple of years ago, it’s basically a mouse with gaming/performance bits and Bluetooth/ USB connectivity built into a compact mouse meant for portable/laptop gaming. This update is basically a purely cosmetic one, coming with the same high-end specs, but in a better-looking shiny shell.
The Razer Orochi Black Chrome Edition mouse features seven programmable buttons, built-in memory to remember different game configurations, an ambidextrous layout, and a unique dual connectivity feature that lets it switch between wired USB and wireless Bluetooth depending on how you want to use it. The mouse runs on a 4,000dpi sensor when the mouse is plugged into USB, but goes on half the sensitivity at 2,000dpi when it’s connected via Bluetooth. At half the speed, it’s still pretty good as a performance mouse. It’s not like we ever pushed ours past 1600dpi anyway.
The Black Chrome still costs the same as the original at $80. Just as well. It looks good out of the box, but we imagine some people could get iffy with it once the surface gets messed up by fingerprints and Cheetos crumbs.
