Razer Basilisk V3 Pro Mouse Review


Razer's latest line of computer peripherals, the Basilisk V3 Pro, is the most luxurious and well-equipped mouse in the popular Basilisk series, and is also the most expensive and heaviest.


In this mouse, Razer responded to the demands that called for the availability of a wireless version of the Basilisk V3 mouse, which has achieved great success since its release last year. Has the Basilisk V3 Pro succeeded in completing the march of its predecessors, fulfilling the hopes of fans of Basilisk versions, or not?

Box content


What you find when you first open the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro box:



USB-A to USB-C cable to charge or use the mouse wired, or both.

USB-A dongle for wireless use over Wi-Fi.

Dongle adapter to use your mouse wirelessly from further distances.

User manual accompanied by Razer stickers.


As always, Razer's packaging on all of its products is slick and beautifully organized.

Overall look and design


The mouse comes in a dark black color, with the material changing in the different areas of the mouse. Most of it is plastic, inlaid with shiny glass in the form of lines, and the two side buttons are also made of shiny glass. At the back of the mouse you will find the luminous Razer logo, and below the luminous ring surrounding the mouse.


Below you'll find a button to switch between presets for the mouse, a button to switch between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modes, a circular lidded compartment for storing the USB dongle, and of course the usual five Basilisk mouse skates, nicely laid out. The two areas on both sides, the right and the left, are made of rougher materials for a tighter grip, without the need to use “Grip Tapes”.


On the left side, you find a place to rest the thumb, and thus the mouse is designed for those who use their right hand, and it is not suitable for those who prefer to use the left hand.


As for weight, the Basilisk V3 Pro weighs 112 grams, which is justified due to all those buttons, its ability to work wirelessly via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, good battery life, and plenty of customizable RGB zones.


The mouse’s materials and materials are of a luxurious type, as every area of it gives a wonderful texture, and you will not feel that any part of it is of low quality or something like that, which is very much in line with its price category.


The mouse looks very luxurious and beautiful, it really is one of the best looking ones for me, and as always, Razer does not disappoint when it comes to RGB lighting and making the most of it. You have a halo of RGB at the bottom that makes the mouse look like a spaceship, you have the illuminated Razer logo on the back of the mouse, plus the wheel is illuminated as well, and that's all with the different lighting modes - we talk about it in the software support section - that makes the mouse absolutely beautiful.

Buttons and actual performance


The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro comes with 10 programmable buttons, there are the two main buttons, the two side buttons, the DPI control button, the button for switching between two movement modes of the reel, 3 buttons in the reel itself, and an additional button beside the two side buttons. All buttons are programmable and customizable, except for the Left Click button, of course.


The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro comes with optical rather than mechanical buttons, meaning that no friction is required to send signals and commands from the buttons, which prolongs the life of the buttons and prevents delays in response or repeated button presses after a long life of use. Button life lasts up to 90 million presses. This is the highest number currently on the market.


The sensor is also optical, supporting up to 30,000 DPI, outperforming the Basilisk V3, which only supports up to 26,000. Supports up to 1000 Hz Polling Rate.


The mouse works in 3 modes: wired, wireless via Wi-Fi, and wireless via Bluetooth. You can switch between them using the button at the bottom of the mouse. Certainly, using via Wi-Fi is the best wireless use to get the best performance, especially in games, but Bluetooth is also present and its performance is satisfactory without problems.


Using the main buttons feels different, being the third and latest generation of Razer's optical buttons. This is especially true if you are used to using a mouse with mechanical buttons, as is the case with me. You will need some time to get used to the optical buttons. You will feel that they are more pressure-resistant with less pressing distance and a higher response speed, but that is only at the beginning, and then you will easily get used to them.


The reel here is not like any other reel, it has two additional buttons by moving it to the right or to the left, which are fully programmable buttons from Razer Synapse software, and it can also be used in the normal position with high friction, or passed in the free mode, which simply makes the reel spin freely without No obstacles. The two modes can be switched via a dedicated button located just below the reel.


As for using the mouse in general, its movement is smooth and fast thanks to the skates distributed at the bottom of it, despite its heavy weight. I don't deny that at first I was bothered by the weight, especially since I'm used to using a light mouse, but with time, the weight wasn't a problem.

Comfort of use and proper grip positions


For starters, the mouse fits almost all hand sizes without issues, but what about grip positions? We know that the mouse is relatively heavy, 112g by today's standards is not a light weight for a gaming mouse, and the mouse is not small in size, so some gripping positions may have problems with comfort and may cause fatigue.


After long days of intensive use, between games and browsing, I see that the most uncomfortable position that will cause you problems when playing for long hours is the “Palm” position, because in that case the pinky will be hanging on the right side in an uncomfortable and annoying way at times .
