Underwhelming after 6 months

Strengths:

Good tracking. Good textures. Nice weight and balance. Thumb buttons are a nice size and positioned well. Nice clicky action all around.

Weaknesses:

The wireless range on 2.4GHz (using the dongle) is about 3 feet. It locks up randomly from time to time, most often while gaming. Sometimes it just stops completely and you have to reset it before it'll start working again. The software to program this thing is garbage. You can delete it, but it will ask to reinstall itself every time you plug your mouse in or reboot. The single button DPI selector doesn't offer very good options by default.

Additional Comments:

If you're looking for a serious gaming mouse, keep looking.

Amazing

Strengths:

Wireless but feels Wired Sleek Very Ergonomic High-Quality feel Bang for the Buck

Weaknesses:

Lack of Lighting

Additional Comments:

Amazing mouse for its price. Sleek looking even without any lighting and you can get a high-performance mouse without breaking the bank. Doesn't even feel like its wireless because of the hyperfast 2.4 GHz connection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Perfect Mouse!!

Strengths:

Mouse has a mate finish and very good piece of rubber on the side. Mouse never feels greasy/sweaty. Always feels comfortable. I really don't like the Razer logo/colors and my entire setup is all asus... But this mouse won me over for it's very low key dark logo. It's just a really good looking dark mouse. No logos/rgb = Beautiful/long lasting AA battery.

Weaknesses:

I have no complaints at all. It's a fantastic mouse!!

Additional Comments:

Highly recommended. Feels worth the money!

Very comfortable, discrete aesthetic, connects to BT fast

Additional Comments:

Although it says this mouse is for medium/large hands, this mouse is very comfortable for me. I have pretty small hands and prefer my hand to be relatively flat on the mouse without my fingers going over the front. The look of this mouse is discrete enough to bring to work/school, which is what I was looking for in a premium wireless mouse. The texture on the sides of the mouse feels amazing. It is easy to set up and connects to BT very fast. I have not noticed any connectivity issues or lag. Once I put in the battery, the mouse got substantially heavier (I prefer my mice on the lighter side) but for a wireless mouse of this size, it is not bad. Although I like the fact that this mouse has a fairly discrete aesthetic, in my opinion this design looks quite masculine. It would be nice to see more mouse options from Razer, where the design is not too flashy but has some subtle feminine design details or more neutral look. Overall, I think this is a very comfortable premium wireless mouse that feels nice and does what it is supposed to do.

Good wireless gaming mouse, but no Chroma

Strengths:

The Basilisk X HyperSpeed is a good choice as a wireless gaming mouse. Its on the lighter side of the mid weight class. Hand fits naturally on the mouse. Connects by 2.4GHz or Bluetooth 5, and the USB receiver is really small. Mouse has a dedicated button to change the DPI.

Weaknesses:

No Razer Chroma, you need to spend over $200 on the Basilisk Ultimate (two entirely different class of products). Build feels kind of cheap. Unlike Razer's other mice that have two dedicated buttons for DPI (increase and decrease) the Basilisk X HyperSpeed only has one. You will have to cycle through all of the DPI settings from lowest to highest. Mouse isn't rechargeable, takes one AA battery.

Additional Comments:

If you hold your mouse with a "claw grip" this mouse might not be for you. Otherwise for the price it's great.
