Razer Orochi or Razer Mamba

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi! I recently got a Macbook and while I didn't purchase it for gaming, I have been using it to play some Portal 2, Starcraft and Call of Duty. However, as these games are quite hard to play using a trackpad, I was thinking about getting a wireless gaming mouse. At first I decided to get the Orochi but now I am thinking about getting the Mamba as I will also be able to use at home for gaming(I currently have the Logitech G9). I don't want to spend too much on the mouse so the two that I have found are a used Razer Mamba from eBay for EUR 77 and the Orochi new from a local store for EUR65. Can you please suggest which one I should buy?

Thanks

Orochi its wired and bluetooth, perfect for the mac so you dont have to plug or carry a dongle. Its not as good of a mouse as the mamba but I think its more suited if you get me.

The Mamba dock is kinda big, and the cable is extremely long.

The Orochi on the other hard is an awesome mobile mouse, even if it isn't for pure gaming. I have my Mamba for desktop usage and Orochi for laptop usage and it's just a pleasure to use on my laptop. Bluetooth = easy wireless, no silly USB adapter and the battery life in stunningly great. I've had my Orochi with the same 2xAA's for the past 4 months without a hitch smile.gif

Plus, you can always use the Orochi for your desktop, either use bluetooth or the included cable.

Thanks smile.gif So if I am understanding well, the Mamba will require me to attach a dongle to the Macbook while the Orochi will work immediately right?

Does anyone know if the Orochi is any good to use for proper gaming?

Yeh you just pair it and off you go, however in my experience Bluetooth is a little crappy for gaming, its fine for web and that just plug the usb in while you game.

K thanks smile.gif Guess I'll get the Orochi then biggrin.gif Regarding the mousepad, is the Razer Kabuto good? I read some reviews saying that it is too light frown.gif Currently I have a SteelSeries QCK+ Mini for my PC so I might use it for the Macbook and get a bigger one for my desktop

I had the orochi and didn't really like it. It wasnt very responsive and I'd say bluetooth is the reason.
