The mouse I’ve been wanting to get for some time now is finally here.
I have been in need of a replacement wireless mouse for quite some time now. The old Logitech wireless mouse was already double-clicking whenever I just do a single click which can be annoying whenever I’m working on some spreadsheets or editing some images. So an upgrade/replacement was due. Even before acquiring a new laptop, the Orochi has been in my sights because it’s a nice wireless mouse with gaming pedigree. I know that for hardcore gamers, this mouse is still a bit painful to the hands due to its small size but I’m fine with it since the size isn’t far from the mouse I’ve been using previously.
The neat thing about the Orochi is the fact that you can program macros with it which you can use for gaming. Another neat feature is that it connects to your laptop via bluetooth so that means it frees up the USB port I used to occupy with the older mouse’s receiver which also stuck out of the side of my laptop like a USB flash drive. Along with with that, the mouse can also operate in wired mode. There is a USB cable that comes with the mouse that you can use especially when your batteries run out of juice. This also allows you to get 4000dpi of sensitivity for your gaming needs. I’m good with 2000dpi though.
The top cover of the Orochi is a single piece that comes off when you need to replace the batteries. The locking feature in the old mouse was a hook mechanism which was already broken so I held the lid in place with a little bit of blu tack. The Orochi’s lid is held in place by a magnet so the entire cover comes off, buttons and all to reveal a two-slot AA battery compartment. This one needs more juice than my previous mouse but that’s what the Eneloops I stocked up on and the fact that this mouse can also go cable-mode, are for.
I have to admit though that my hand is still getting used to the Orochi. The sensitivity’s a bit new to me and also, the shape is foreign. But the overall experience is definitely good. The feel of the rubberized lid is good to the hands. The teflon pieces underneath makes the mouse slide smoothly on almost any surface.
I am definitely loving this mouse. Will be testing it on some games soon.
Maybe Raynor will need my help yet again.
