Razer’s extremely sensitive wireless gaming mouse, the Basilisk Ultimate, comes with RGB illumination, a practical charging dock and a significantly discounted price tag of currently US$69 at the reputable US retailer Best Buy.
Over the past few weeks, we have covered a pair of compelling deals for wireless gaming mice made by the well-known periphery maker Logitech. However, one of its closest US-based competitors also has some noteworthy bargains up its sleeve, as a current sale of the Razer Basilisk Ultimate perfectly illustrates.
More specifically, Best Buy has discounted the Razer Basilisk Ultimate, which comes bundled with an according charging dock, by a whopping US$100 or 58% in comparison to the original list price of US$169. The good-looking wireless gaming mouse comes with up to 100 hours of battery life, customizable RGB lighting, a very sensitive optical sensor with 20.000 DPI and eleven programmable buttons. Thanks to Razer’s Hyperspeed technology, the Basilisk Ultimate is supposed to be 25% faster than competing mice from other manufacturers.
Accordingly, Rtings’ in-depth review confirms that the click latency of 3.8 ms the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is indeed extremely low when connected via the included USB receiver. The reviewers also praised the wireless gaming mouse for its great ergonomics for right-handed users as well as the numerous customization options in Razer’s corresponding software suite called “Synapse 3”. On the other hand, this gaming-focused pointing device does not support traditional Bluetooth connections, which should be an acceptable omission for most buyers who are looking for a well-performing wireless gaming mouse in the US$80 price range.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
