Razer expand Basilisk gaming mice range with two new models

Razer has added the new Basilisk Ultimate and Basilisk X Hyperspeed to their roster.

The former, priced at a hefty AU$279, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate incorporates the 20K DPI sensor found in the new Razer Viper Ultimate. This sensor features several new "intelligent functions" that promises to help it deliver a smarter tracking experience such as Asymettric Cut-Off and Motion Sync.

The Basilisk Ultra is also equipped with optical switches, 50g acceleration and 100 hours of battery life per charge.

Next off the rank, there's the Basilisk X Hyperspeed.

Priced cheaper than the original Basilisk at AU$109, the new model features a slightly chunkier design but the same 16K DPI sensor and mechanical switches. Where the original Basilisk was wired, the Basilisk x Hyperspeed is also wireless.

The wireless mouse boasts support for both Razer's own HyperSpeed Wireless tech and traditional Bluetooth. When relying on the latter, the Basilisk x Hyperspeed boasts an impressive 450 hours of usage per charge. In contrast, the former will net you about 285 hours. Either way, that's an impressive amount of usage for a mouse that costs just shy of $100.

Both the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and Basilisk x Hyperspeed are available from this week.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
