Taking inspiration from RZer’s original Basilisk in terms of the sweeping thumb grip, angular front design, and sloping surface, the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed incorporates these characteristics. It does make a few changes, however. There are several reasons why this is a better design, especially the simpler grip. Both thumb buttons can be found on the left side. There is no special adjustment for the notched scroll wheel. You get one light on the DPI switch instead of RGB and you don’t get RGB on the RGB switch. As well as Razer’s own mechanical switches, which are rated for 50 million clicks, it also features a rugged and smooth design. They feel nice and clicky, and the thumb buttons have a consistent feel and feel clean.

This is an excellent piece of work. With Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed, you can get the outstanding tracking performance you would expect from a high-end gaming mouse, while keeping up with the fast movements of elite players. Even though wireless connections for gaming mice may still be a concern for many gamers, these devices have made great progress. Our experience with the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed’s wireless 2.4GHz connection hasn’t revealed any noticeable latency, even when we’re playing games at speeds up to In addition to this, the mouse comes out of sleep mode whenever a click or movement is made, so it is easier to avoid accidentally shooting an NPC when a long conversation is over. Throughout the second half of Outer Worlds, we found that the Razer Basilisk X was always able to stabilize our aim. No matter if we’re making small adjustments to keep a distant target in our sights, or turning around to stop an enemy approaching from behind, tracking is consistent. I haven’t had a single issue with the battery during all of that gaming. According to Razer, the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed can run for up to 285 hours on a single AA battery when using HyperSpeed Wireless, and up to 450 hours using Bluetooth (LE). I do not think the battery has been drained more than a few percentage points in as long as we’ve played. Despite its gaming focus, the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed isn’t just about gaming. Thanks to the Bluetooth connection, users are also able to use this mouse while on the go. We have paired it with a laptop via Bluetooth and used it for a bit of work. There is a reduced level of tracking smoothness, but we still have the convenience of leaving the USB receiver plugged into our gaming PC at home and being able to use the Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed anywhere.
