After opening the box, I knew that I was in for a treat. I was itching for combat the moment I read the package info. “This isn’t your grandmother’s mouse” they said. Just the price alone can verify that this isn’t the type of mouse my grandmother would buy in the first place.
The Razer Lachesis is one of the first Razer mice to ever get a high precision laser sensor. This makes it easier for the mouse to satisfy even the highest of sensitivity type gamers. Upon plugging it on to my PC, the swarming light dazzled me back to my gaming zen. It was as though the mouse was yearning for combat as well.
The grip is definitely not claw-friendly and would only optimize usage if ever you’re used to putting your hands flat around the mouse. The response time is just crazy, as though the mouse or the character you’re playing is an extension of your body. Despite these gracious benefits however, I wasn’t quite fond of the high precision movement. Even with the lowest sensitivity, the mouse tends to move around when I turn up the volume (or in this case, the bass). If this was truly a game enhancing mouse, then perhaps it would’ve been better if it didn’t limit me from jerking up the volume. The mouse detects movement or even the slightest vibrations. Even if you were to hold the mouse down, the Lachesis will still do rapid motions upon detecting your vibrating surface.
One of the best features of the Razer Lachesis would be its onboard memory. This lets you mess around with the settings that are saved on to your mouse, letting you plug and play without having to go through the tiring aspect of reconfiguration.
All in all, the Razer Lachesis is still one of the best gaming mice around. If you were gonna play it on a rig that’s next to a large bass buffer then I suggest getting another table for that. With a high precision 4000 Dpi sensor, the mouse lets you keep smooth tracking regardless of resolution or highspeed movement. Definitely not something for your grandmother.
