Best Buy has the Razer Basilisk X wireless gaming mouse on sale for $39.99 today. This price is being matched by Amazon, too. The Basilisk X normally sells between $55 and $60, and it has only dropped as low as today’s price during the holiday shopping season.
The sale is actually part of a larger sale going on at Best Buy called the Last Second Savings Event. This is a chance to save hundreds and find some last-minute gift ideas. The sale ends Thursday, which is probably when this deal will end as well. We’ve actually seen a couple of Razer products drop in price during this sale, so keep an eye out for other ways to save.
Uses Razer’s HyperSpeed tech for a wireless experience as nearly as responsive as wired. Includes Bluetooth and a 16,000 DPI Sensor that can be adjusted. Has on-board storage so you can save programmable button settings. Works with Windows and Mac.
$60.00 $20 off
The Basilisk X has two connection options: standard wireless or Bluetooth. You’ll want to decide what’s more important to you in battery life or low latency. While connected via Bluetooth you can extend the battery life of your mouse to up to 450 hours. That’s the way to go if you are traveling with the mouse and using it in awkward places like on an airplane or in a hotel lobby or something like that. Keep the mouse going strong for a very, very long time with Bluetooth.
If you’re gaming with it and want the best possible responsiveness, connect the mouse via wireless and activate that HyperSpeed technology. HyperSpeed is how Razer gets the best possible speed, up to 25% faster than the competition. You won’t have to worry about any latency between moving your mouse and seeing the cursor move on your screen, and it also helps with interference reduction so you get complete wireless freedom. Connecting this way only gives you 285 hours of battery life, which is still a week and a half before you even need to think about charging.
The mouse also has six programmable buttons. Use the Razer Synapse software to configure them and assign complex macro functions based on the game you happen be playing. The mechanical switches are very durable and last up to 50 million clicks. Razer backs up this mouse with a two-year warranty.
