The Razer Basilisk V2 is an excellent gaming mouse, but its right-slanted design makes it comfortable to use even as an office mouse. The mouse features a nice and comfortable thumb rest on its left side, making it great for right-handed people. People with smaller hands might have some difficulty reaching the sniper button and keeping nice control over the mouse. It's compatible with Razer Synapse 3, which allows for a good amount of customization options.

The Razer Basilisk V2 is the king of mid-tier gaming mice. It has 11 programmable buttons, including a thumb paddle that acts as both a sensitivity clutch as well as any secondary action you assign. With the Razer Synapse 3 program, re-mapping these buttons is a breeze. The mouse has on-board memory to store up to five different layout profiles.
