Razer Ouroboros vs Mamba

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Well I am looking for a wireless gaming mouse and both of them seem pretty good, which would be the best from the two?

pick which you like better, no difference

Well coming from a first gen Mamba, I'll never buy a razer product again. The top coating completely rubbed off. The wireless mode stopped working, have to run it wired mode always. The battery case decided to snap off for no reason. The scroll wheel started squeaking from week 2 of owning it. I couldn't get any mouse pad to work properly with it without my cursor wanting to jump around. Had to resort to just using my wood desk. Maybe the newer Mamba is better, but I'll never find out. I'm going back to my roots with Logitech.

Mamba is for large hands, Ouroboros is for small/medium hands. I personally prefer the G700/G700s shape though.

I've owned both the new and old versions of the Mamba and never experienced these problems.

Also, the way that you get the Mamba to work on different surfaces is by going into the Razer driver's program thingy and clicking the button that says "Calibrate to surface." You obviously never did this. The Mamba worked on both a white and black glass mousepad, my cloth mousepad, and my wood desk surface.

I definitely put my vote in for the Mamba, OP, it doesn't disappoint.

When I bought the mouse, the software at that time did not have a Calibrate to Surface feature. This was during the time they were doing a few firmware updates for people that were having the same problem. But it never did fix mine.

Edit: In fact after looking in the software now, there still isn't a calibrate to surface button. In the manual for the newest firmware it shows the button under the polling rate options. In mine, that button doesn't exist. Might only be for the new Mamba.

both mice are horrible

I've owned both mice in the past, and I preferred the Mamba's shape but the Ouroboros' sensor. I'm currently using a Deathadder, but if I had to pick between the two, I would go for the Ouroboros. thumb.gif

you are just upset that you wasted money on a elite gaming heavy brick mamba with horrible sensor, and my "russian poverty" mouse is much better, has shape of deathadder and a9500 sensor same as in expensive "gaming mice" and works great on cloth.
