Same great design, more attractive price

As the name might imply, this is still a Basilisk mouse at its core, and that's important for a number of reasons. The first of which is the design, with the Basilisk's incredible ergonomic form factor.

It's sadly not designed for left-handed gamers, but the sculpted thumb area is home to a pair of additional buttons and the single multi-function paddle, which can be mapped to a specific feature in a game, or for push-to-talk to chat with your squad mates.

With the regular Basilisk you just get more: more paddles, more programmable buttons, more features. But the core aspects are all present in this $50 version, which makes it an extremely attractive mouse. It brings advanced features and innovation to those on a tighter budget. And that's something that everyone can get behind.
