Rundown

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Basilisk V3 is a mildly ergonomic right-handed gaming mouse built to be great for palm and claw grips. Powering the mouse is Razer's 26K DPI Focus+ sensor, and although there is no situation in which I can recommend gaming at this kind of DPI, it is a good sensor. Tracking is said to be accurate at up to 650 IPS, and the mouse has been more than capable of keeping up with my fast flicks.

Pros[**]
  • Fast enough to always keep up with you, the gamer
  • Optical mouse switches are easy to use
Cons[**]
  • A little heavy for a wired mouse

Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Razer Basilisk V3 features the same slick, black shell as its predecessors but this time, it's rocking a badass Fast & Furious-esque underglow. The mouse has a 26K DPI sensor, a comfortable design and a smart scroll wheel that lets you spin your heart away. The only flaw is that the ring and pinkie rest could be bigger to create a more comfortable grip.

Pros[**]
  • Sharp and meaty design
  • Smart scroll wheel lets you jump from rigid scrolling to free-scrolling
  • Easy-to-use RGB-lit scroll wheel
Cons[**]
  • Sensitive clutch takes some pressure to activate

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Razer Basilisk V3 is a gaming mouse designed to give its users a wide range of customization options. A major feature of the mouse is its tilting HyperSpeed scroll wheel, allowing you to switch between the standard 'tactile' scrolling motion, and a free-spinning mode for rapidly scrolling down webpages or spreadsheets. There are five slots for profiles available, so you can save an array of different keybinds for various games or genres.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable to use
  • Tilting scroll wheel allows you to switch between tactile and free-spinning modes
  • Easy-to-use RGB lighting

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Razer Basilisk V3 is a right-handed ergonomic mouse with an all-black chassis. It has a nonremovable, square “sniper” button, which lowers DPI as you hold it down. It's still extremely comfortable to hold, particularly due to its textured thumb rest.

Pros[**]
  • Stylish, ergonomic design
  • Accurate scroll wheel
  • Excellent in-game performance
Cons[**]
  • Sniper button is a drag for competitive players

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Razer added more tactile optical mechanical switches and a scroll wheel that can automatically switch from a tactile scroll to a free spin. Out of the box they're the web browser's back and forward buttons, plus a sniper button that drops the mouse's sensitivity. The scroll wheel also has 5 programmable functions, and there are 5 more: the left and right click buttons, two buttons south of the scroll wheel and the profile switch button.

Pros[**]
  • Right-handed ergonomic design with palm and claw grippers
  • Smart-Reel mode automatically switches from free-spin to free-spin mode
  • Lots of programmable buttons, including sniper button
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre sensor sensor
