The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is a continuation of the Razer Basilisk lineup of gaming mice and the wireless version of the Razer Basilisk V3. Like the other mice in this series, it's a multi-genre gaming mouse with a right-handed design that's best suited for a palm grip where all hand sizes will feel comfortable. This version upgrades the mouse sensor and includes Gen-3 optical switches in the L/R click buttons, but it keeps the overall shape and button cluster that popularized the lineup.
Although not designed for this use, the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is an excellent office mouse. The right-handed ergonomic shape is very comfortable to use, and the mouse feels overall very well-built in hand. Notably, its scroll wheel has quite a bit of features, including two free-scrolling modes and left-right tilt inputs, making it a great choice if you tend to work with video editing or spreadsheets. There's also a cluster of three buttons on the left side, and all buttons on the mouse are re-programmable using the companion software. You can connect the mouse with two devices simultaneously: one with its USB receiver and another with a Bluetooth connection.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is an excellent mouse for FPS gaming. It has exceptionally low click latency for a very responsive-feeling in-game experience. The right-handed ergonomic shape is comfortable to use, though it's best suited for larger hands. Overall, it feels very well-built and has high-quality feet that provide an excellent gliding experience on desks and mousepads. However, it's heavy compared to dedicated FPS gaming mice, meaning you may prefer a lighter option.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is an excellent MMO or MOBA gaming mouse, though it doesn't have as many side-buttons as dedicated MMO mice. Overall, it feels very well-built and comfortable in hand, thanks to its right-handed ergonomic shape. Performance-wise, its click latency is incredibly low, and its sensor offers excellent performance.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro only comes in one colorway. However, there are two bundle options where you can get the mouse plus a charging dock or the mouse with a wireless charging puck. We purchased and tested just the mouse individually, and you can see the label of our unit here.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro continues the popular Razer Basilisk lineup. It's the wireless version of the Razer Basilisk V3 and includes Bluetooth connectivity and the ability to pair it with Razer's HyperSpeed dongle for a higher maximum polling rate, though this dongle is a separate purchase. This mouse hits the same niche as other multi-genre gaming mice, like the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED, but offers some differences in terms of an upgraded sensor and improved optical switches. While it's extremely versatile and performs well for any genre of game, a casual gamer would likely not need this level of performance.

The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is the upgraded version of the Razer Basilisk Ultimate. These mice have the same shape and layout, so they'll feel the same in hand. However, the V3 Pro features an upgraded sensor, Gen-3 optical switches, which are rated for more clicks, and compatibility with the new HyperSpeed dongle, for a higher maximum polling rate. The V3 Pro also has Bluetooth connectivity which the Ultimate lacks.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is the wireless version of the Razer Basilisk V3. They're nearly identical, but the V3 Pro features an upgraded sensor and Gen-3 optical switches in the left- and right-click buttons. Although the V3 Pro is wireless, its included cable is more flexible.
The Razer Naga V2 Pro and the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro are wireless mice with similarly excellent gaming performance. Both mice are versatile enough for playing a variety of games. The Basilisk has a shape with a thumb rest and more extensive RGB lighting. On the other hand, the Naga V2 Pro has significantly more programmable buttons and includes a set of hot-swappable 3, 6, and 12-button side panels. It also has a customizable scroll wheel and a significantly longer advertised battery life. On the other hand, the Basilisk is lighter, its shape includes a thumb rest, and it has more extensive RGB lighting.
The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro are both wireless multi-genre gaming mice, but the V3 Pro has better gaming performance thanks to its extremely low click latency. The V3 Pro also uses optical switches in the left- and right-click buttons that eliminate any double-clicking issues. That said, the performance on the V3 Pro may be overkill for most casual gamers, so the more moderately priced G502 performs comparably well.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro and the Logitech G502 X PLUS are wireless multi-genre gaming mice with exceptional gaming performance. The Logitech is somewhat more lightweight and has a significantly longer advertised battery life with all RGB lighting off. On the other hand, the Razer has higher-quality feet and supports Bluetooth.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro and the Razer Basilisk V3 X HyperSpeed are wireless gaming mice in the same lineup. The Basilisk V3 Pro has an internal rechargeable battery and delivers better gaming performance overall. It also has additional RGB lighting, and its scroll wheel supports tilt inputs and free-scrolling. On the other hand, the Basilisk V3 X HyperSpeed uses AA batteries for power.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro and the Logitech G502 X are multi-genre gaming mice that perform similarly well. There are a few notable differences since the Razer is a wireless model that connects with either Bluetooth or a USB receiver, while the Logitech is a wired-only model. The Razer also has RGB lighting, which the Logitech lacks.
The Logitech G502 HERO and the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro are both multi-genre gaming mice, but the V3 Pro is a wireless model that connects with Bluetooth or a USB receiver, and the G502 HERO is a wired-only model. The V3 Pro does perform better overall as it has an upgraded sensor, better left- and right-click switches, and better overall click latency, but these features may be overkill for a casual gamer. The G502 HERO is a better value option for casual gamers.
The ROCCAT Kone Pro Air and the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro are wireless multi-genre mice with ergonomic right-handed shapes. The Razer offers better gaming performance, and its scroll wheel can toggle between a notched and faster free-scrolling mode. On the other hand, the ROCCAT is a bit lighter, it has more extensive RGB lighting, and it includes a charging dock by default. The Razer also has a charging dock available, but only as a separate purchase.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro and the GLORIOUS Model I are multi-genre gaming mice with some key differences. The GLORIOUS is a wired-only model designed for a lightweight gaming experience, so it has a perforated body and fewer RGB zones. It also has a modular side button that you can swap out with a slightly differently-shaped button. On the other hand, the Razer isn't designed for weight optimization and is a wireless unit. Instead, the Razer has a better-performing sensor, lower click latency, and Bluetooth compatibility.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro looks very similar to the previous versions of the mouse in this lineup. It has a matte black plastic body with glossy black side buttons and accents. It has an RGB zone in the scroll wheel, an RGB zone in the Razer logo, and 11 independent RGB zones around the bottom of the mouse. Overall, it has a fairly aggressive gamer aesthetic, with a lot of sharp edges. If you're interested in a wireless multi-genre gaming mouse with more extensive RGB lighting, check out the ROCCAT Kone XP Air.
Although it's a rather bulky mouse, the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is fairly portable thanks to the storage compartment for its USB receiver.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is heavier than most gaming mice. While you can't technically optimize its weight, you can remove the "puck" under the mouse that covers the receiver and charging pins to reduce the weight by 2g.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro has a comfortable, right-handed design with easy-to-reach side buttons. The side and thumb rest has a nice textured covering that adds great grip. The overall shape and size remain unchanged from the previous versions, so if you're familiar with the older models, this will feel identical in hand. While it's best suited for a palm grip, you can still comfortably use it with a claw grip or fingertip grip, although small hands will likely find the sniper button too far forward to reach comfortably with these grip types.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro has an advertised battery life of up to 90 hours with RGB lighting turned off while connected via its HyperSpeed USB receiver. It also has a rechargeable battery that you can wirelessly charge if you purchase the separate Wireless Charging Puck from Razer. If you're interested in a similar mouse with a significantly longer battery life, check out the Logitech G502 X PLUS.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro comes with an incredible cable. It's a nice upgrade from the cable included with the Razer Basilisk V3 since it doesn't retain any kinks from the packaging.
You can reprogram all of the buttons on the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro, including the profile button on the underside of the mouse. You can even reprogram the scroll up/down and L/R tilt inputs. Using the software, you can set a Hypershift button that lets you program a secondary layer of commands for even more inputs. The left- and right-click buttons use Razer's Gen-3 optical switches and are rated for 90 million clicks.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro has exceptionally low click latency that's also very consistent. As a note, the click latency for the wired connection is slightly higher than the click latency with a USB receiver connection. As this is a slightly unusual result, it was re-checked multiple times and yielded the same results repeatedly.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro has three polling rate options: 125Hz, 500Hz, and 1000Hz. Razer also offers a "HyperPolling" receiver as a separate purchase on their website, allowing you to increase the polling rate up to 4000Hz. All tests in this review were conducted without this receiver, using a polling rate setting of 1000Hz.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro has a scroll wheel with a nice rubber covering for added grip. Scrolling feels precise, thanks to the well-defined steps. It also has a free-scrolling feature that you can access in one of two ways. The first is by manually pressing the button directly under the scroll wheel to switch from tactile to free-scrolling. The second way is by enabling the "Smart-Reel" feature in the software, which automatically switches between the two modes based on scrolling speed. You can also use the software to enable "Scroll Acceleration," which increases the scrolling speed the faster you scroll.
The Razer Basilisk V3 Pro uses Razer Synapse 3 software, which allows you to re-program buttons, adjust the CPI, polling rate, and lift-off distance, and customize the RGB lighting. You can save your settings to the mouse's onboard memory, though this procedure isn't exactly user-friendly.
Similar to the software options from other major manufacturers, Synapse 3 is the source of criticism from the broader community. Where there weren't any issues during the testing of this mouse, many users online criticize this software for requiring frequent updates, taking up disproportionate system resources, and a host of other complaints. You may find this software frustrating to work with if you prefer more lightweight software options or no software at all.
