Razer Announces the Basilisk Ultimate and Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed Mice

Razer today announced the launch of the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and the Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed gaming mice. Both are joining Razer's ever-advancing wireless mouse family and offer the best-in-class wireless technology with Razer HyperSpeed.

Faster and more reliable wireless performance
Both mice are powered by Razer HyperSpeed, a wireless technology that is 25% faster than any other wireless gaming technologies*. It has also been tested and proven by top esports athletes, holding its own in the most intense and unforgiving arenas. With the lowest click latency in any wireless mouse technology, Razer HyperSpeed produces the fastest transmission speed to register swipes and clicks instantaneously. The improved Adaptive Frequency Hopping of Razer HyperSpeed provides a perfectly lag-free wireless connection, constantly scanning frequency channels for any interference and seamlessly switching across channels in real-time.
RAZER BASILISK ULTIMATE
The Razer Basilisk Ultimate is equipped with the same Focus+ 20K DPI Optical Sensor as the Razer Viper Ultimate. On top of having the highest sensor specifications available to-date, it features new intelligent functions like Smart Tracking, Asymmetric Cut-Off and Motion Sync for greater tracking accuracy.

Optical switches for greater reliability and speed
The Razer Basilisk Ultimate is fitted with Razer Optical Mouse Switches. They require no physical contact to send electrical signals to the PC, eliminating the need for debounce delay and causing zero corrosive effects. Ultra-fast and durable, these switches withstand the rigors of competition while delivering the speed and precision guru demand. The Razer Basilisk Ultimate also allows up to five on-board memory profiles, so users have instant access to their personal settings wherever they are. With refined wireless power efficiency, the mouse can run at peak performance for up to 100 continuous hours. Similar to the Razer Viper lineup, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is improved with smoother PTFE mouse feet to aid users in executing fast flicks. The mouse is bundled together with the Razer Mouse Dock that can indicate the current battery status or charging level. Gamers can also enjoy the mouse in wired mode with the included Razer Speedflex Cable. Simply plug it into the mouse dock's USB-A input for full control and minimal drag.

The ergonomic Razer Basilisk Ultimate boasts 11 programmable buttons, including the renowned multi-function pedal for extended controls where users can switch between game functions or settings with speed and ease. Fitted with 14 Razer Chroma RGB lighting zones, each LED can be individually programmed in Chroma Studio, perfectly illuminating gameplay. For personalized tactility, users can also adjust the scroll wheel resistance to their preference via a dial below the mouse.

So....

nOt....

HAPPENIN :kookoo: :fear: :cry:

Even IF I was a serious gamer, which I am not nor ever will be, I still would not ever, ever, ever spend anywhere near that much on a rodent, regardless of how many buttons, lights, docks or whatever else they can think of to throw into it......

Well, maybe....

If it was titanium plated, made my coffee & food, yanky me wanky, and cleaned everything up afterwards hahahaha :roll: :eek:

hum the last pics is ....

well that one has the shape of a G502 Lightspeed ... without the good point ... (well the shape is a good point, the brand ... is not.)

basically a G502 minus 2 button with a dock that bring the price, which is already outrageous, to a whole new level ... great

my Asus rog Spatha was cheaper than that mouse alone (ok no "optical mouse switch" but still switches swappable and a few buttons more, 6 to be precise )

well ..forgot to add to the shape good point ... RGB is a major good point, it permit the user to select any color he/she like, instead of either plain blue red or whatever other color aside white (technically not a color) or a combination of unwanted red green blue but no other variation or customization...

2 good point for a Razer product??? PREPOSTEROUS! well one of the good point is a shameful copy past of the shape an excellent mouse that .... cost less and will have probably less quality/longevity issues.

Better than this trash Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED HERO (lol) than I’m using.

I would prefer the Viper Ultimate though.

ah? although your sys spec show a D.VA Razer Abyssus Elite (lol) :roll:

may i inquire what is trash with that G703? because unlike Razer ... Logitech never failed me (either not once after warranty ran off or multiple time during warranty duration like the Naga who got in RMA 6 time in 6 month ) and also because that mouse got a lot of good reviews, ok Razer mices also get good reviews ... although Razer probably cherry pick the review sample ... or i don't know how come the reviewer have no issues even in long term test.

indeed in the shape and functionality the Viper Elite would be the contender for the G703 (although it would be no match for a vast majority of potential users.)

Glad i'm not the only one who got a G703 and Hate it. Mine is sitting in a draw, first one got RMA'd for a dodgy right click switch. Second one's grip pads wore in an extremely weird Gross way - it feels like holding a soft n sticky ice cream cone.

Razer the worst software you can get.

Logitech I have the old G500s, G9, Mx518, G502 and G602 the best mice I've ever had. Software the best and the customer service only had a problem and that was once. Product replaced quickly

I have the older Basilisk, and it is totally fine.

The best feature is that it has onboard profiles for speed and does not need Synapse to get working.

That's the problem is synapse. The most unreliable software I have ever used.

I still have the D.VA Abyssus Elite somewhere. I don't use it as much (it's my travel mouse) so I don't think it's broken yet. I got it as a prize for one of the Overwatch events back in the Philippines (along with the D.VA mousepad). The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have on-board profile storage.

I have had 3 replacements of the G703 (PMW3366, not HERO) due to various defects. First one was the scroll wheel problem where if you scroll down, it sometimes registers as scrolling up. Second one had a defective middle-click with MOUSE3. Third was random double-clicking with MOUSE1. Their RMA process is good though as they just send brand new ones without asking for the defectives back. They replaced the 3rd one with a brand new HERO sensored equipped version last August. It's still working now and I hope this would continue lasting.

I have a Razer Deathadder Elite, bought back in 2017. It had a defective MOUSE1 within the first few months as well, but they replaced it in a week without asking for the defective back. It's still working well today.

My latest two mice, a Coolermaster MM710 (since launch) and Razer Viper (wired one, since launch too) are quite sturdy, despite the holes on the MM710 and both being lightweight. The Viper has on-board profile storage so I don't need to deal with Synapse 3. Both have great cables that you don't really need a bungee.

I don't like the rubberized coating myself, but it hasn't been a problem for me (yet). The 3366 versions had a load of problems with the button switches though, but luckily their RMA process is not bad.

I don't know if they would honor warranty for the melting rubber grips though. You should try to RMA it if it's still under warranty.

i see i see ... well on my side it's the other way around ... multiple Razer product owned thru some years ... none of them lasted, Logitech devices i owned on the other hand passed whole warranty duration without any issues and still rock it at various second hand owner i sold them to.

for the Naga i mention ... 3 failures in the first half of the 6 month and 3 failures more later, after the 7th replacement, i said "no more" other than that ... a Orochi did flake her surface treatment in a matter of 2-3 month and then sensor failure, a Electra (headset) passed 2 month and then the driver started to produce a high pitched noise plus the outer shell cracking and lastly a mousepad (yep ... even the most simple product they could make after a mouse bungee, failed) the Destructor, lived up his name by kinda "self destructing" (surface flaking and cracking)

ah, aside one ... a Razer Copperhead which was about the last of their product i owned who was, somehow, good (i reckon them 3 good product, the Boomslang, the Copperhead and the Diamondback and since it's their first 3 mouses ... that say long about them from me)
