Introduction


It came as quite a surprise when Razer launched a revamped version of their old Lachesis mouse. The new version of the Lachesis mouse features a newer Philips Twin-eye laser sensor which is capable of tracking at a remarkable 200 IPS (inches per second). Besides that the resolution has been bumped up from the already high 4000 DPI to the more ridiculous 5600 DPI, which should give you plenty precision even on the most absurd ATI Eyefinity setup available. The Lachesis mouse has not been altered in terms of ergonomics, but the scroll wheel has been replaced with a new better performing one.

For this new version of the Lachesis Razer have come up with their own multi-color lighting system which functions much like that of the Mionix Naos 5000. It allows you to select whatever color you like, and as an added bonus allows you to turn the lights off.

Like the other Razer mice there is no weight system so people looking to be able to tweak it weight wise will be left short.

The new Lachesis is launched at the same price as the old one when that first hit the market. At $79.99 the Lachesis is quite costly compared to other mice using the same sensor system from Philips. The sensor that the Lachesis uses is however the very latest from Philips.

Besides the new Philips Twin-eye sensor capable of 5600 DPI resolution and coherent tracking up to 200 IPS, the Lachesis 3.5G also features a multi-color lighting system like several of the other high end gaming mice we have reviewed the last year. Other than that it is pretty much the same mouse as the older 4000 DPI version.
