Need to be online and give up more of my personal info to configure 1 button
Can't believe I have to create a Razer account just to configure a button. Seriously? How much personal data is this company collecting? And before you tell me it's in the cloud so you don't have to configure the mouse every time, who the hell uses 60 computers with one freaking mouse? Make it an op...

Amazing Mouse Especially For FPS
I've been playing and working with Razer mice for years and have most of their models on hand: DeathAdder Elite, Mamba Elite V2, Naga Trinity and now the Basilisk V2. The oldest is the DeathAdder Elite that is at least 4 years old. It's shiny from wear but works just as good as it did on the first d...

I need to stop buying mice
Yes I have that many. All purchased new once upon a time. This review though, is for the Razer Basilisk v2 [wired]. Of all things, let me start saying that I have experienced many, many mice. This is, in comparison to my all time favorite, the G403, is the most comfortable so far that I can live wit...

Only noticeable when wiggling fingers and keeping the mouse steady, not so much during gameplay. \*M1 and M2 does not have pre and post-travel. Actuation force doesn't change while clicking on the majority of the button, of course harder near the center edge. \*The stock CM feet on past mice have been great after some use and so was this one.

If you don't have the software installed, you can't stop the lightshow
I don't need or want a light show in my hands. I want a functional gaming mouse! I guess Razer's priorities have changed over the years. I also have a KVM switch so I can use multiple computers with, ya know, the same mouse and keyboard. When I connected this mouse directly to my computer and set th...

Multiple picks for all budgets
Finding the right gaming mouse amid all the options available can be a struggle. There are a lot of factors to consider, like how it looks, how it feels in the hand, the button selection and arrangement, the quality of its sensor, and whether you want a mouse that’s wireless or wired. These details,...

Logitech and other mouse companies are using switches rated for 5v/10mA at 3.3v/1mA, this leads to premature failure.
Hopefully I won't have to just through too many hoops and they'll just send a new one, but I've heard pretty mixed things about their warranty service. I'm looking at replacing it with the Razer Basilisk v2 because it uses optical sensors and should not have this issue. I have heard the wheel isn't as good as the G502 however and I love the free spin/interval scroll feature and would have a hard time giving that up. Do any other mice have that feature or is it exclusive to Logitech?.

You can't configure the Mouse unless you are online and log in to their server which collects data!
I just want a mouse to play games that has a lot of buttons. I decided to give this one a try, but I am sorely disappointed and will never buy from the Razer brand ever again. Basically you can't use the features of this mouse unless you install their software, log into their online server and allow...
