The Razer Basilisk X wireless gaming mouse has dropped to $34.99 at Amazon. This popular gaming mouse has recently been selling for closer to $50 on Amazon, and you can still find it going for $46 at other retailers like Best Buy. The price drop today is an all-new low we haven’t seen on Amazon before. It even beats a previous deal we shared a few months ago when it first dropped to $40. It has been dropping to $40 frequently since then, but it has never gone below that mark until now.
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, which is still a week and a half before you even need to think about charging.
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.
