Razer Basilisk V3 review – the smartest scroll wheel

Razer Basilisk V3 review – the smartest scroll wheel

The Logitech G502 has many challengers, with plenty successfully replicating its precision, comfort, and abundance of buttons. However, it’s rare to find a gaming mouse that includes an unlockable scroll wheel, let alone does it better. The Razer Basilisk V3 not only lets you to spin it to your heart’s content, but it’s now smarter than ever with the option to automatically unlock depending on how hard you flick it.

While the G502 uses an analogue button to switch between the two scroll wheel modes, Razer opts for a digital connection with the Basilisk V3. You still have access to a dedicated button that switches between standard and resistanceless scrolling depending on your preference, but it’s remappable if you want to give it another function.

This is because the Basilisk V3 has another trick up its sleeve: the smart wheel. By diving into the Razer Synapse 3 software, you can instruct the mouse to automatically enable its free-spin scrolling mode when you spin it harder, and it’ll revert right back to tactile the moment it slows down.
