The Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed wireless and Bluetooth gaming mouse is down to $44.99 on Amazon. This is a great low price compared to the $60 street price. The last deal we shared on this mouse was way back in January when it dropped as low as $40, but it has been selling for around $60 or close to it since that time.
This is a super affordable price compared to the upgrade, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate, which goes for $150 on Amazon. Buy one Basilisk X for yourself and three for your friends before you have to invest in that bad boy. Of course, if your main concern is getting the best, you should check out our review of the Ultimate because it’s pretty darn good.
The Basilisk X has two connection options: standard wireless or Bluetooth. You’ll want to decide what’s more important to you in battery life or low latency. While connected via Bluetooth you can extend the battery life of your mouse to up to 450 hours. That’s the way to go if you are traveling with the mouse and using it in awkward places like on an airplane or in a hotel lobby or something like that. Keep the mouse going strong for a very, very long time with Bluetooth.
If you’re gaming with it and want the best possible responsiveness, connect the mouse via wireless and activate that HyperSpeed technology. HyperSpeed is how Razer gets the best possible speed, up to 25% faster than the competition. You won’t have to worry about any latency between moving your mouse and seeing the cursor move on your screen, and it also helps with interference reduction so you get complete wireless freedom. Connecting this way only gives you 285 hours of battery life.
The mouse also has six programmable buttons. Use the Razer Synapse software to configure them and assign complex macro functions based on the game you happen be playing. The mechanical switches are very durable and last up to 50 million clicks. Razer backs up this mouse with a two-year warranty.
