Razer Basilisk Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-12-24

Since the Basilisk is aimed mostly towards FPS, we have tested it in titles such as Quake Champions, Battleborn, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and DOOM. After calibration, the mouse performed excellent thanks to the modded PWM3389, which supports up to 16000 DPI, in increments of 50 and starting at a minimal value of 100. Considering that Synapse 3 is a beta software, we were surprised to find out that it was quite stable on our system and we have not experienced any crash during the test period. We are also seeing the Hypershift function which is similar to the Easy-Shift[+] employed by ROCCAT and layered LED lighting options in the Chroma Studio for even more interesting LED lighting effects.
