At least Logitech lets you do it offline.
This was my first and will be my last Razer product.

Now I have a NEW wireless set up using the G915 keyboard, I’ve been searching for the best WIRELESS gaming mouse for myself. I BOUGHT and RETURNED: G703, G902, G PRO, G502 LS, Dark Core, Razer mamba & viper. I was going to stick with the viper even thro it was too small for my larger right hand. Until I seen the Basilisk Ultimate release. Returned the Viper tried out the Basilisk and now my new wireless set up is completed. This is a true G502 killer, if you bought the G502LS well return it and buy this. The thumb paddle is better to press than the G502 and the Basilisk PTFE feet glides so smooth/feels better in my hand and RBS is amazing compeer to all wireless mouse and to top that off it weighs less with no double click issues and a RBG charging dock
I really like the IDEA of the thumb “Clutch/Paddle” button but I do wish the piece was longer.
I would of taking less battery power option if they could have got this down to 99g or less.
Customizable Scroll Wheel Resistance is a fantastic idea to compete with Logitech free wheel.
Every company should now be using PTFE feet glides. Good job Razer.
Razer Synapse 3 works well for me no issues with software. Macros/Keybinds
Wifi 2.4 Hyperspeed Wireless is amazing NO LAG what’s so ever
I mostly use the NVIDIA SHEILD TV and play OVERWATCH or when I work from home/laptop.
Since I use the Nvidia Shield to play Overwatch I need to map the mouse side buttons to a number/letter to make it work in game on the Shield. This works well and macros too. I have to save all settings to the ON BOARD MEMORY. I wish I had more than 5 profiles but I am happy that I have 5 and not just 1-3
I am very DISSAPOINTED that no RBG lighting settings SAVE to OnBoard memory. Even a few simple options to be saved would have been grateful. Oh-well…
Hyperspeed Wireless – ZERO LAG and 100% amazing
The RGB charging DOCK is simply PERFECT, what a great feature.
PTFE glides mouse feet are the best. All mice should come with this.
Fits my right larger hand type very well.
Love the thumb rest
Clutch/Paddle (sniper) thumb button piece feels GREAT to press
Side buttons are larger than viper buttons.
Perfect length on the left/right mouse clicks
Clicking all buttons feel GREAT
Customizable Scroll Wheel Resistance (Logitech free wheel still better)
Left/Right wheel buttons are great to have. (I use them for some macros)
Works well on the Razer Sphex V2 & SteelSeries QcK mouse pads
Grips very well, feels good in hand
Sensor seem to be great
Small size dongle
Glides very well
Still can use wired if needed
Battery life is amazing
Works great on the NVIDIA SHIELD TV device
RBG lighting is absolutely beautiful !
On board memory 5 profiles
! On board memory does NOT save RBG lighting settings =( WTF WHY?
The clutch button piece could be LONGER or longer option pieces (still better than G502)
Not UBS-C (Doesn’t really matter as there is a charging dock)
big scroll wheel
Some Finger prints show
Weight (Could be lighter - #1 thing to improve on)
(But at $170 with dock it’s cheaper than getting a G502LS with charging mat)
Its OCT of 2020 and mouse is working great love it. I have dropped mouse on floor few times with no issues still working fantastic. The software could be designed better but it is what it is.
I haven't seen anything that compared this to the G502 on reddit (maybe I'm just not looking hard enough I suppose), so I just wanted to post something here, as a totally unofficial reviewer but a consumer.
The way I play games, my wrist generally doesn't move or moves very little, if that gives you an idea of how I hold mice. The feel of the Basilisk is super similar to the G502, nearly the exact same shape which is a good thing because the G502 fit my larger hand very comfortably.
I think the biggest other concern I had was the "clickyness" of the left and right mouse buttons. I had used a Deathadder Elite before and honestly, I just really hated it because of how squishy the left and right buttons felt. This mouse uses a different switch, and it feels a lot "clickier", nearly the same as the G502. Truthfully, the G502 is clickier and I think also has a cleaner click noise (seems like a shorter, sharper click noise than the Basilisk), but the Basilisk click is close enough to the G502 click that it hasn't bothered me at all. In terms of actuation force, I think the G502 required maybe a little bit more, but the force is fine on the Basilisk. The biggest thing to me was that it didn't feel smooshy at all, and it doesn't!
Middle (mouse wheel) click is horrendous. Just do not use.
Of course, the RGB is better than anything out there, and the included charging stand works well (and includes settings for lights changing based on various charging states).
I've owned the G502 for nearly 2 years and I was curious to see how wireless mice had progressed since the last one I owned (another Logitech mouse, I think the 702 or something) back in 2015. So far, playing League of Legends (I use controller for FPS) I haven't noticed any problems, and it does feel quite liberating to not have the cable holding it back :-)
Overall, I'm satisfied with the (expensive) mouse. I guess if there was one thing I could change on it, it would be to have the ability to charge it on that cool mousepad Razer makes that charges another one of their wireless mice (forget the name of it). Other than that, I think it's great and I think I will allow this to replace my G502.

Out of this Basilisk lineup on Amazon, I saw that there were 3 models of similar mice: The Basilisk (wireless), the Basilisk v2 (Wired; this one), and the Basilisk Ultimate (wireless + detachable cable). I almost bought the Wireless to give it a whirl, and clean up my desk clutter, until I realized something... for the price of ~15$ more (at the time of this review) the Basilisk v2 (Wired; this one) was available, and in comparable specification to the Ultimate model..! The only difference being that it was wired, and about 100$ odd less than the Ultimate! I immediately hit "buy now", and Ive got no regrets. I love this mouse.
From the RGB colour profiling, to the smooth tracking across the RGB Razer mousemat (Goliathus, extended version) its heavenly compared to my previous G203 Prodigy from Logitech. The travel is smooth, the click is confidant, the adjustable scroll wheel is actually shockingly tunable, and the look is just stellar. Finish it off with a classy, synched RGB accent and I'm a happy camper~
If you've never bought a Razer mouse before, as with everything, I would recommend trying it out in the store and seeing how you like the feel. Don't take the marketing material at face value. If you have tried them in-store before, or with a friend, and know what you're getting into and want to give them a go, you won't be disappointed.
5*s from me.
I know who'll be supplying my gaming mice from here on out ;)
1) It has great connectivity through wireless and I've never had problems with it lagging or dropping out.
2) The ergonomics are also great and it's really easy to grip because of the shape and rubber sides.
3) Overall an enjoyable mouse to use.
And now onto some cons:
1) The scroll wheel is insensitive and doesn't scroll properly for each "notch" that you scroll. Sometimes, when I scroll 1 notch it won't register it until I scroll it just a little bit further past that notch. Changing the wheel resistance doesn't change this, it'll still be insensitive to scrolls about 10-20% of the time.
Quite annoying when you're trying to move a browser one scroll down, or trying to scroll once for a precise weapon switch, and it doesn't register it even though you've scrolled the one full notch.
2) The other caveat is that some computers can't charge the mouse while they're turned off (if they don't have USB-charging-while-off options). My desktop doesn't have USB charging when it's off, so I have to leave my computer on overnight to charge the mouse, or use the cable connection to charge it during the next session.
With the battery life only being around 18 hours of continuous use, it's a bit of a battle trying to keep it topped off between consecutive long sessions.
If you leave your computer on 24/7, no problems, just throw it on the dock while you're sleeping. Otherwise, you'll have to take every chance you get to put the mouse on the dock, but keep in mind that you won't be able to use it while it's sitting on the dock.
Overall, a decent mouse, but the way it charges and the scroll wheel being somewhat insensitive are slight negatives that might not suit some people.
The battery life isn't horrible but it isn't amazing either. I really wish they would have gone with a USB charger instead of batteries but in the end, it's not a huge deal. I had to replace the battery once in about a month of fairly heavy usage which I can't complain about.
Now, the main issue is that the right-click button keeps glitching out and makes it nearly impossible to use it in an FPS game like Call of Duty.
I've reached out to Razer last week regarding this and I've yet to get an answer from them. Even if they're willing to replace this one, I definitely do not plan on purchasing any of their wireless products again.
