Razer today introduced a subsequent gaming mouse within the Basilisk line. Aptly named the Razer Basilisk V3, this new entry keeps the features seen in its predecessors and offers a couple of upgrades alongside them. First and foremost, Razer remains targeting this at PC gamers who want to possess a larger-than-usual selection of programmable buttons without necessarily going whole-hog and dispensing for a button-laden MMO mouse.
Specifically, the Basilisk V3 offers 10 programmable buttons alongside a turn-on rock bottom, which will change between profiles. The Basilisk V3 has enough onboard storage for five profiles, so if you’ve got a couple of games in your heavy rotation, you’ll create profiles for every title and save them on to the mouse.
Perhaps more interesting is the Basilisk V3’s HyperScroll Tilt-Wheel, which may be activated in four different directions. Razer describes this as an “intelligent” scroll wheel due to its three different usage modes. First is Tactile Scrolling Mode, which offers notched, slower scrolling. The mouse also offers a Free-Spin Scrolling mode, which seems perfect for infinitely-scrolling sites. Finally, the mouse features a Smart-Reel Scroll Mode enabled via Razer Synapse and may automatically change between Tactile and Free-Spin scrolling, counting on how briskly the user scrolls.
The Basilisk V3 is outfitted with Razer’s Focus+ 26K DPI optical sensor and Optical Mouse Switches. But, of course, it’s not a PC gaming accessory without RGB. Therefore the Basilisk V3 seems to possess that decidedly, with 11 Chroma lighting zones which will all be customized in Synapse. Thereupon many lighting zones; the mouse might find yourself being the brightest thing on your desk.
This is a wired mouse, which can not only help with latency but also keeps costs down. Indeed, the Basilisk V3 is priced at $69.99 and is out there today at Razer’s website, Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers around the world.
