Razer Lachesis Mouse & Lycosa Keyboard Video Review
26 April 2013
Summary: The Razer Lachesis mouse has a sleek design that's very comfortable to hold and comes with nine programmable hyperesponse buttons. There's the main left and right click Ultra-large non-slip buttons, two buttons on the left side, two buttons on the right side, two buttons at the top and a scroll wheel button. This mouse is kinda large and might not fit some hands.
Conclusion: If you’re looking for a mouse that works both for left and right handed people, can change colors to match your lit-up keyboard, and off course kill off your enemies at ease while they’d respawn then look nowhere else. You’ve got Razer’s assassin working for you.
Conclusion: The new Lachesis is a performer like most Razer mice are – it’s comfortable, provides optimum grip and gives precise control over my movements. However, if you already own a Lachesis, there is no reason to upgrade to the new one. The bigger DPI makes no difference over most resolutions anyway; and the customizable LED lights are certainly not worth the $80 price tag.
Summary: The 5600 DPI version of the old Lachesis design brings only a few new things to the scene. The basic layout and functions of the mouse remains the same except for the newer better Philips sensor used. The small yet noticeable tweaks to the design are all quite neat and the mouse performs almost as good as the more expensive Agilent sensor powered mice we have tested.
Pros: Improves upon the old Lachesis, Customizable lighting system, Seven usable buttons, 5600 DPI laser sensor, Works on a large variety of surfaces, Great for high sensitivity, Sensor performance remains the same at all DPI settings, Good functional driver suite
Cons: Ergonomics for some, Z-axis tracking, High price
Excerpt: When you think about gaming mice Razer is probably one of the three brands that comes to your mind. This company started making gaming peripherals in the late 1990s and became pretty well known thanks to its Boomslang mouse. In this review I'm taking a closer look at the Razer Lachesis mouse, this model was launched at the Games Convention in Leipzig in 2007. Almost ancient history in the tech world, but better late than never.
There is no doubt that the Razer Lachesis is one of the best gaming mice ever. The 4000 dpi sensitivity is great for both general computer work and gaming making the Lachesis a well-rounded mouse capable of doing any computer task.
Pros: Great sensitivity, No software interpolation used, Lots of buttons
Conclusion: The Razer Lachesis is light weight, powerful and durable for the high sensitivity gamer. This mouse will make it easier to get frags, even though the Lachesis comes in at a pricey $79.99 it is well worth it if you are a heavy FPS and/or fast paced RPG gamer. I give the Razer Lachesis a 9.5/10.
Conclusion: The Lachesis though is just that, a gaming mouse, and it seems not to be the greatest everyday mouse, I personally prefer a mouse that I can use for everything I do, and to me it seems the Lachesis is a bit jittery when using it for slow motions like copy and paste etc.
Pros: Very sensitive, Lots of adjustments, Very slick feet, Works equally well on all surfaces, Easy to use
Excerpt: Razer has just reached a new height in terms of tracking resolution for gaming mice: its new model, the Lachesis, features a jaw-dropping 4,000 dpi of resolution. It also has an ambidextrous design, a rubber-coated large body and a pulsing blue light Razer logo. As with all the products from the company, the impeccable presentation goes along with the desire of making the best weapon of the virtual warrior.
Excerpt: After unveiling the new 3G tracking sensor, what else could Razer have up their sleeves for the competitive gaming scene? How about a 4000 DPI mouse with 9 programmable buttons, which happen to...
