    I bought this mouse to possible replace my Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition – Professional Grade Chroma Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse, 16,000 DPI. I wanted to get a smaller mouse that would fit my hand better and I also liked the idea of having an extra thumb button.I have been very happy with this mouse and ended up keeping it and replacing my Lancehead with it. It does fit my hand much better and the extra thumb button it great. I didn’t think I would really care much about the adjustable resistance on the scroll wheel but I do actually like it a lot. I prefer to keep it turned down to the point where I can barely feel the bumps on the scroll wheel.If you have used a recent Razer mouse then you know what to expect. This mouse is built with the same quality as all of their recent products and in my opinion it is excellent. I was worried that the adjustable scroll wheel would make it feel cheap or rattle but fortunately, it doesn’t.If you are someone with smaller hands, I would definitely recommend you give this mouse a try.

    Just bought the Basilisk and I’ve been using the mouse for about a week now. Productivity software and some FPS gaming.Pros: As a user of generic (“free”) OEM mice, this was a huge change. It took some getting used to, but the mouse is definitely a huge improvement. I paired it with a new Razer Destructor 2 mousepad, it is a completely different experience. I initially thought the DPI clutch is a little gimmicky, but it has its moments depending on your use cases. Highly customizable, and it has a good feel in the hand. The ambitions of the mouse software it’s paired with are high, but…Cons: The new Synapse software. I realize it’s in its beta stages, but it makes the experience a frustrating one. I’m running Windows 10. I’ve received one Synapse software update since I started using it, and both versions are very buggy. So far, the app has crashed multiple times just trying to use its core functionality, the sensitivity buttons on the top have stopped working and it’s forgotten about my profile until I rebooted, and the color scheme has a mind of its own.Verdict: Great mouse, but give them a little more time before using the new version of the Synapse software. It could make the difference between being truly impressed and being frustrated.

    Bought a Razer Basilisk to replace a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer that finally gave up the ghost after more than a decade of faithful service. RIP little buddy. I’d return the Razer in a second if my girlfriend hadn’t thrown out the box it came in. It’s not so much the mouse that sucks, it’s the software you have to use to get all the advertised features:* In order to customize the mouse DPI, LED colors, button assignments, etc. you must download Razer Synapse (v3.0, mind you).* Synapse requires you to create an online account in order to use it. It also requires that you keep it running in the background at all times. If you ever close it, the mouse reverts back to its default settings.* The license agreement for the Synapse software says Razer and anyone else they choose may take any data they want from your computer without limitation. The license agreement also says Razer has no obligation to provide any updates or even to keep running the Synapse servers to allow you to keep using all the features of the mouse you paid for. If they ever discontinue their service or go out of business, tough.* The default settings cause the mouse to cycle through LED colors (annoying) but worse, it seems to prevent my computer from going to sleep. Even if I manually put it to sleep, the mouse will wake the computer back up, presumably so it can change the LED color some more. Don’t leave this mouse connected to a laptop unless it’s plugged in to an AC adapter, or you’ll have a dead battery.In summation, I’m not about to use a mouse that spies on me. You shouldn’t either. It does make a pretty good cat toy, but I bet you can get a *really* good cat toy for $70.
