Pros and cons

According to our mouse expert
  • The new optical 5G sensor means this mouse gives competitive gamers pixel-precise tracking.
  • Adjust the scroll wheel resistance yourself to easily switch between weapons or set the right distance for your scope.
  • 2 thumb buttons and the DPI clutch on the left hand side give you two extra actions and your DPI under your thumb.
  • It is not easy to reach the thumb buttons while pressing the DPI clutch.

Description

Razer introduces this Basilisk gaming mouse for competitive shooter gamers. Many gaming mouses offer adjustable DPI, but the Razer Basilisk uses a DPI clutch to make this even more precise. As long as this button is pressed you can control your set DPI value to, for example, use a low DPI for sniping or a higher value to make a 180 degree turn. In addition the new optical 5G sensor for pixel-precise tracking helps you to blow your opponents head off with a well aimed shot. Mechanical switches in the mouse buttons register every click meaning the days of getting frustrated and resorting to spray 'n praytactics are long gone.

    A very good gaming mouse for this price!

    Jamie Schouten | 28 January 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Ergonomic design
    • Nice design and good thread
    • Good sensor and sturdy buttons
    • Good quality and very fast mouse
    • Chroma and software can be set up properly
    • No

    The mouse is very fast (responsive well) and has perfect specs and parts for gaming. It has a great profile sensor and the mouse can store 4 settings profiles, so you can play with your own settings elsewhere without software.
    It is also very ergonomic and has a beautiful design. Fits well in the hand with extra grip and buttons feel good. Many settings can be adjusted to your own liking in the Software and the mouse has a Razer Choma function.
    In addition, it has a sturdy wire and the mouse has a good weight (not too heavy or too light).
    Finally, a big advantage is that the resistance of the scroll wheel is adjustable and there is a DPI-clutch button on the mouse.

    In short, the Razer Basilisk Gaming Mouse is a perfect mouse that is suitable for gaming and has many functions and possibilities, for a very good price.
    Real value for money!

    Good and nice mouse unless you have big hands

    Iris Tomassen | 7 March 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • nice mouse
    • Drivers are installed in no time
    • Fits well in your hand
    • Razer synapse 3 for even more light choices
    • Dpi clutch button releases quickly in a bag
    • This is not recommended with big hands

    This mouse is fine and is also nice to work with and play with, you can also quickly lower and increase the dpi and the buttons are all within reach. The only drawback is if you have large hands, this mouse is much too small for you.

    A real must-have!!!!!!

    • Suitable for large hands
    • Very easy installation
    • Thumb support
    • Not yet found

    After previous mice intended for large hands, such as Func-3, Speedlink etc, Logitech G502 was the mouse for me until this Razer Basilisk crossed my path.
    Ergonomically practically identical to the Logitech, however, the buttons on the side are better positioned and have a better response. Chroma is a nice gadget, but you can only see it when your mouse is resting on the mouse pad and you can look at it calmly.
    Installing the driver and software went without a hitch and
    no hiccups or bugs.
    Bought this mouse in combination with the Razer Blackwidow Chroma v2. The synapse software recognizes games you play, such as Overwatch, and automatically adjusts the color scheme.
    Overall very satisfied with this acquisition.

    Great mouse for a reasonable price
    • Perfect shape
    • Extra 'trigger' on thumb
    • Programmable
    • Synapse software!

    Mouse fits perfectly in the hand and is easily adjustable. However, the synapse software is still very buggy, which means that it often does not find the mouse. The extra thumb button is a blessing!

    The gaming mouse is super good!
    • It's just a really good gaming mouse
    • There is no downside at all

    When I had the mouse in my hands I immediately felt the best gaming mouse I've had so far, so yes and especially when gaming, that game mouse is super handy.

    Top mouse, soon design and functions as expected.
    • sleek design
    • Feels good in the hand

    Likes it very much. Fits comfortably in your hand. The colors look nice too. Multiple choices when installing the software. Small minus point, there are ridges on your thumb where dust quickly gets in between.

    good mouse
    • Multiple buttons
    • Push button for lower DPI
    • Good response speed

    As usual, Razer does not disappoint. This mouse has a beautiful design, feels easy, and has multiple buttons. There's also a button that lowers your DPI if you hold it down
