Razer Basilisk V3 – Design and comfort
From the looks of the mouse, you can instantly make out that, it is perhaps the most expensive gaming mouse that it truly is. The mouse with armor-like luxurious looks has a solid plastic body with a matte finish that seems highly durable. The mouse measures 5.11×2.36×1.65 inches and weighs 101 grams which are same as V2. The feel is the same too and the grip is most convenient for medium to large hands with the palm grippers helping to get the most out of the full-handed design with 11 buttons and a comfortable thumb rest on the left side.
The thumb rest not only gives a premium look to the device but ensures more comfort when using the mouse by preventing thumb friction thus facilitating faster movements when playing games. Besides, the thumb rest does a lot more by ensuring easy reach to the three buttons on the left side allowing you to send off multiple commands in split seconds.
The mouse wheel is one of the biggest attractions of the Razer Basilisk wireless design. The big and heavy scroll wheel located at the center divides the mouse into two halves longitudinally. The hyper scroll tilt wheels the makers prefer to call it to help scroll in all four directions – forward and backward, and right and left. By pressing the button behind the wheel, you can change the scrolling modes to switch between a Tactile mode and a Free-Spin mode. Behind the button is another button wheel button. You can switch mouse.
The razer Synapse app provides the Razer Basilisk V3 software support to the mouse. The software supports users with tons of personalization options as it goes the extra mile to delight users. You can achieve various personalization goals in polling many mouse sensitivity, surface calibration, and RGB lighting, just to name a few. Moreover, the software allows you to adjust the DPI sensitivity precisely with deft exactness.
