As a gaming mouse designed for FPS players one of the cool features of the new Razer Basilisk is the inclusion of a thumb rest and DPI clutch. Like those things positioned behind fancy steering wheels, here it means being able to switch to a faster or slower DPI for small bursts of precision snipering. Or, in my case fast getaways.
Oh, and it's a pretty great mouse too.
The Razer Basilisk follows a similar ergonomic shape seen across the Razer range, plus naming their gear after formidable serpents. As a righty one glance at the Basilisk and you’ll note the prominent thumb rest indentation in the design. Although this means it may not be as aesthetically appealing as something like the Razer Lancehead, in practice it’s more comfortable thanks to the overall lightweight design of the Basilisk and inclusion of textured rubber grips. Build quality is exceptional for what is essentially a mid-range gaming mouse, with a great finish and sturdy button feel.
