mouse features and specs
The most important product features and specs

As you can see by the specification listed above, the Basilisk X HyperSpeed is a pretty basic wireless mouse. There are couple of features that make it stand our from the crowd in its segment:

Bluetooth connectivity - the Basilisk X HyperSpeed gives you the option to connect the mouse wirelessly directly via Bluetooth, in case your PC, Mac or laptop supports one. We managed to do this quickly on our Dell Precision 3520. In this case the battery life extends significantly and you also don't need to use the external USB dongle that is included (works on 2.4 GHz frequency).

Build quality - the Basilisk X HyperSpeed looks well-made and quite durable. The build-quality is one of the best in class it definitely leaves the impression of a well-made product.

Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed - 2020 video review


This is our initial video review of the Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed after a very quick test. We are definitely following up on this product in couple of weeks after comparing it with some rivals and making additional performance tests. 
In this regard, please don't forget to subscribe on the bottom left corner of this site and our YouTube channel, we will highly appreciate it.

Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed - product price

The official listed MSRP is $60 we are sure you can find this mouse cheaper. For this price the Basilisk X HyperSpeed is a great competitor for gamers who don't need RGB options and want a mouse from a premium brand.
In UK the price varies around £50 and above which is not what we can call 'budget' mouse but still quite affordable.  

Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed - alternatives

Here are some interesting alternatives in case you are not sold on the Basilisk X HyperSpeed:
  • Trust GXT 161 Disan gaming mouse - this one is very similar to the Basilisk X HyperSpeed, almost the same form factor but a bit cheaper. Very good mouse for the money and one of the biggest competitors in this price range.
  • Trust GXT 188 Laban - another cheap RGB gaming mouse but this one is corded. Again, here we have very good value-for-money mouse but the build-quality doesn't feel as premium as the Razer mouse we tested.
Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed - our opinion
To be honest we liked the Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed a lot. We liked it so much, that we are going to use it for couple more weeks and see if it might be our first choice for work mouse on PC and laptops. Until then we will definitely keep the Trust GXT 161 Disan for a PC mouse and the HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 for laptop use on the go.
