Razer kraken x gaming headset

The dexterous fun of using high-end wireless technology, but is it the best choice? The

Razer Lancehead wireless gaming mouse is Razer's response to Logitech G900 and G903 and its iconic smart wireless mouse. Lancehead has some of the best wireless technologies available in a mouse and is paired with what Razer calls the best laser sensor. This high-quality mouse is a deadly beast in appearance, just like its true reptile brother, but it is a joy with dexterous hands. The ergonomic mouse design feels very good, and it is relatively light for a 111g wireless mouse. The retail price of this mouse is slightly less than £100/US$100, which provides a high-quality gaming experience for left-handed and right-handed gamers.

Pros

Disadvantages The overall quality of

Lancehead has left a deep impression on me. The main housing is made of thin and soft plastic, which feels very strong. To be honest, it has the best RBG lighting of any mouse I have ever owned. There is a rubber grip on the thumb groove, which helps me hold the mouse firmly, no matter what different game styles I have tried. It follows well on my hard fabric and pads, and glides on smoothly. The right-handed mouse isn't usually my cup of tea, but to give Lancehead credit, it'll be a viable option because it's really comfortable. If you combine the Lanceheads design with their new Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT), you will be a winner in the wireless field.

I'm a fan of Razers' simplified packaging, and Lancehead is no exception. There is a large image of the product on the box, and there are specifications / features on the bottom and back of the box.

With the introduction of the wireless Lancehead, Razer seems to be able to meet the needs of everyone (even lefties). This smart beauty is in the middle stage in terms of size. From a perspective point of view, it is similar in size to the G Pro, but 1 cm wide. However, it weighs 111 grams and I don't care. The side handle perfectly accommodates my thumb, ring finger, and little finger, but because the Lancehead is low-key, I find it more difficult to move on the mouse pad compared to the similarly weighted G900 / G903. The movement problem I encountered may be due to the size of my hand and grip (palm), of course, because the mouse still feels very comfortable in my hand during gaming. The overall shape of the

mouse is excellent, and it’s a bit jaw-dropping on the desktop, just as you would expect from Razer peripherals. Its ergonomic design does allow for more control, and you can feel this. The mouse body is curved enough to provide good grip and help me avoid pressing the DPI button on the top, which is a popular design. The curved body passes through the front, forming 2 very comfortable grooves on the main button. There is an unconventional space between these carved buttons with illuminated scroll wheels, which is possible due to the absence of cables. In addition to RGB, a better feature of this mouse is the "floating" scroll wheel, which brings deadly poisonous gas to the wireless Lancehead. The

case is made of thin and durable plastic, which is very soft to the touch and feels very good in the hand. It uses the same shiny rubber handles as Cordless Mamba, if it were not for these on the side, it would be difficult for me to maintain control in certain situations (for example, requiring very fast movements). The side handles have additional grooves to aid any gliding, and the mouse feels sturdy with no loose noise. Lancehead I've been using their metallic gray, it looks great, the gray complements the RGB light strips making it a very visually appealing mouse. The

main buttons are ergonomic and have a satisfying click sound, but as mentioned earlier in the Lancehead TE review, they are indeed inferior to the G Pro in terms of handling. I noticed this difference in the buttons, which may be a preference, but the Lanceheads switch doesn't feel right. This mouse uses an Omron switch developed jointly with Razer. There is no performance loss in the game, but it seems that extra effort is needed when clicking, which is trivial but eye-catching. The

mouse has 2 thumb buttons on each side of the mouse, making it symmetrical and right-handed. If you are concerned about accidentally pressing them, you can disable the button near the ring finger at any time, although I never did and no problem. The mouse appears to be designed to avoid accidental presses, which are the same as the side buttons, are narrow and have a defined point in the middle. This sharp edge can really help you push, but for me these buttons are too thin and too far. I prefer to scroll half my thumb up to the button so I don't lose control of the mouse, but I can't do it effectively with Lancehead. There are 2 DPI buttons on the top of the

mouse for quick changes (higher / lower). Some players need these buttons when playing different characters in Overwatch, for example. They are small, sturdy buttons that are almost impossible to accidentally press. The DPI button switches between 5 custom preset DPI settings, which you can customize in the Synapse software.

Lancehead has a tactile scroll wheel, very similar to the Mamba Wireless, with a grippy texture, but smaller. that

The angle and its "floating" nature make it very attractive.

Comes with a 2.1 meter long USB charging cable and can be inserted well into the mouse. If absolutely necessary, you can use the wireless Lancehead when wired, but like the championship version, it is woven and can easily collect dust or sometimes wear out. That being said, if you wear kimchi and have to use cables, don't worry, it fits different bungee cords that I have tried and is relatively soft compared to other braided cables that I have used before.

The last button is located at the bottom of the mouse and allows you to quickly change the configuration file without exiting the game or opening the software. As with the dpi stage, you can have 5 profiles, all of which have different links, colors, polling rates, and DPI. The

Lancehead is equipped with a Razers variant of the Philips Twin Eye 5G laser sensor, which is usually enough to stop people from reading, but I can’t deny that this sensor actually works very well. Razer claims that it is the best laser sensor in the world, and it may be. It has a DPI range of up to 16,000 and an IPS speed of 210. Taking into account the 50g acceleration, this means that this mouse will not easily malfunction when moving fast.

I met Lancehead mainly while playing CSGO, because I think this game gives you a good understanding of the general working methods of the mouse. I did not notice any problems with test jitter and tracking. When the mouse is set to my favorite DPI and sensitivity, the results in the game are great. I found the target easily, it was a pleasure to adapt between 2 and I didn't jitter when using the mouse for a week. The sensor did not rotate once, this is the case of the old laser sensor, considering that this is a brand new mouse for me, the fine-tuning is perfect. Although most people are against laser sensors, Razer does have a great sensor. It may not be that good, but it is difficult to distinguish. The polling rate of the

spearhead can be as high as 1000Hz. To test this, I jumped on the Zowies "Mouse Speed Tester". The software can provide you with an average polling rate according to your needs, and the spearhead stays in the mid-900s, which is very standard for mice.

Lancehead has some very exciting technologies. The mouse uses Razer's proprietary Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) to connect to the receiver. Basically, the mouse is connected to several different channels open to the mouse, and they are constantly scanned every millisecond for interference. If there is a problem with the current frequency of the mouse, AFT will switch to a frequency with better performance to ensure 100% transmission stability (less delay). It is worth noting that AFT will only change when its current frequency is not performing well. Lancehead operates in the 2.4 GHz range, which connects to key receivers connected to the desktop. I have never encountered any problems when the dongle is connected to my desktop, but if you are worried about connection problems, you can always use the adapter and use the dongle closer to the mouse. The

battery lasts for about 24 hours. If you turn off the beautiful lights (not like that), you can extend this time. One day of charging (24 hours) seems to be enough to spend at least 4 days of intense competition, but I think if you are professionally training at least 8 hours a day, this may not be very convenient. It takes about 4 hours to fully charge from 0%, but if you enter this scene, you can always play while charging. Battery life has an impact on AFT, because it constantly searches for frequencies and consumes more power. This shortcoming cannot be avoided, but for us, if it makes the wireless experience as good as the wired experience, we don't care.

Lancehead is the first Razer mouse to use Synapse 3 (beta) version. I have no problem because I installed the software and it immediately recognizes the mouse and I am in progress. Synapse is cloud-based, which means that if you are going to play internet games anywhere, you can download the software, log in, and then your settings can be deployed.

When you understand and use this mouse in depth, you will find that it is actually a very practical and right-handed mouse. Although the sensor is not a superior optical sensor, its performance is excellent too, and AFT runs in the background, it really gives you confidence in this mouse. Maybe it's a pro-level wireless gaming mouse, and in a short amount of time, I have no doubt that most people can get good results with the Lancehead, but when you consider the price of the G903 with great sensors it is similar, it is very difficult. In other words, if you are a fan of Razer or really like the unique shape of Lancehead, then go buy it, it is a sturdy mouse.
