Razer is expanding its lineup of gaming mice, this time with direct successors to the DeathAdder and Basilisk models. The new mice are predictably called DeathAdder V2 and Basilisk V2.
Starting with the DeathAdder V2, Razer has added its Focus+ optical sensor, which gives it a 20,000 DPI. Razer has also added its Optical Mouse Switches - which use lasers to actuate clicks, making them more accurate - as well as a SpeedFlex cable. Additionally, the design has been improved to be more comfortable, and there's a new sweat-resistant coating and rubberized grips. The scroll wheel has also been updated to make scrolling more "notched", while also offering low resistance.
The Razer DeathAdder V2 features eight customizable buttons that can be customized through Razer Synapse 3 and HyperShift, allowing users to assign macros to the mouse buttons. The mouse also supports Razer's Chrome RGB lighting, and it now has on-board memory to store up to five profiles that users can switch between on the fly.
As for the Basilisk V2, it's a slightly more capable mouse, though it shares a lot with the DeathAdder V2. The biggest advantages are the inclusion of 11 programmable buttons, plus the fact that the scroll wheel resistance can be customized to suit the user's needs. The design is different, but in terms of specs, it's nearly identical to the DeathAdder V2.
