After a few weeks on our test box, we were finally ready to give a review to the 5600 DPI version of the Razer Lachesis. The first thing to consider is that there is virtually no learning curve associated with this mouse. Just plug the mouse in, download the drivers, and the mouse is good to go. When moving from a stock mouse (or even a cheaper gaming mouse), one will immediately see and feel a sensitivity that is unparalleled. While this does not equate into having to move the mouse any more than normal, the specificity that one has when using the 5600 DPI Razer Lachesis is fantastic.

This attention to detail is important when a (virtual) life is on the line, and when one does something like have to change a weapon with the scroll wheel, quick response and accurate feedback are essential. Even when it comes to the physical side of things, Razer has ensured that this mouse is head and shoulders over comparable model. For those that use a mouse for turning or other activities, the cord itself is made from fiber rather than plastic or rubber. This ensures that the cord itself will not drag or otherwise stick to the rest of the cords behind the computer.

The customization for the Razer Lachesis is similarly strong. For those that wish to color-coordinate, the glowing effect on the mouse can be changed. For those that want their mouse to be a one-stop shop for their gaming needs, nine different buttons can be hot-linked to actions or macros. If you want the end-all, be-all mouse for gaming, make sure to pick up the 5600 DPI iteration of the Razer Lachesis. At a hair under $80, it will be the last gaming mouse you need for a long time.

Rating: 9.3/10
