- Ambidextrous or left-handed design; good for a claw grip
- I think I have average-sized hands
- Must be wireless (RF or bluetooth) -- something that can be neatly and discreetly plugged into a USB port and be forgotten about, but I can live with a charger receiver combo if necessary
- Good battery life / uses standard batteries (AA/AAA)
- Programmable buttons would be nice, but not necessary
- Good for gaming and general use; I usually play RTS games with an occasional FPS thrown in the mix
I've narrowed my list down to
- Razer Ouroboros
- Razer Orochi
- Logitech m510
None of the stores around me carry the Orochi, but I figure it might be a little too small for me, and I'd have to get a bluetooth module for my machine. Not the worst thing in the world. The Ouroboros seems to be a very polarizing mouse -- people either love it or hate it. I've heard about squeaky clicks, connectivity issues requiring a restart...it's enough to give me pause, but the fact that it can be configured to be a left-handed mouse makes me drool! The m510 is fine -- a little plain, but I'm sure it'll do the job. Just seems a little cheap and flimsy looking.
Any long term Ouroboros users out there that can share their experiences? What's battery life like for general use? How close does the receiver have to be to the mouse? I always have a bunch of Eneloops lying around and can easily swap when necessary, so I'd like to keep the receiver out of sight if possible -- I have a Silverstone FT03 case (read: Maingear F131) that I could tuck it into if the range was good enough. Is synapse 2.0 really that bad?
Orochi users: How does this compare (size-wise) to a Logitech M525? Have you used this on a desktop, and if so, what bluetooth module would you recommend for it?
I'll also entertain any other suggestions for good overall mouse with a slant for gaming.
