Razer Basilisk V3 Pro Review

Rating: 9.0.

Razer describes the Basilisk V3 Pro as their most advanced mouse yet. It's packed full of features and is compatible with the Mouse Dock Pro, a convenient desktop wireless charging dock that takes the polling rate of the Basilisk V3 Pro up to 4000Hz. Can the complete package deliver on its rather high price tag?

Pros:

  • Very good scroll wheel.
  • Stunning design.
  • Solid build quality.
  • Convenient charging method when using the Mouse Dock Pro (extra purchase necessary).
  • 4000Hz polling rate when using the Mouse Dock Pro or Hyperpolling Dongle (extra purchase necessary).

Cons:

  • Very expensive.
  • White model picks up marks easily.
  • Extra purchases necessary to take advantage of higher polling rate and wireless charging.

KitGuru says: The Basilisk V3 Pro is a very good mouse. It delivers in every department. Excellent build quality, performance and design all add up to provide users with a great experience. Although, that experience does come at a cost, picking up both the mouse and Mouse Dock Pro bumps the total up to eye-watering levels. If you don't mind shelling out some cash, what you get in return is highly impressive.
