Razer Lancehead Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅23-08-17
Conclusion
As an entire package, the Lancehead is fantastic. Razer has employed some serious technology and expertise to achieve the kind of wireless stability and sensor performance this thing produces in a relatively small mouse. The battery life is good considering there are 16 RGB LEDs and a 5G laser sensor.

We were seriously impressed by the RGB lighting, the colour reproduction was fantastic but seriously bright at the same time. Transitions were smooth and felt great; all bolstered together by the brilliant Chroma software.

Providing you don’t run the RGB LEDs at their brightest setting, you can get 3 full days of use out of the Lancehead, this is somewhere around what Razer claim. 8-10 hours, with the RGBs roaring away, is reasonable considering their brightness.

The biggest hurdle for any potential customer will be that £140 price tag, that will take a lot of stomaching for most consumers, though there are many positive points to consider while purchasing.



Razer has thrown the book at this thing, creating the ultimate wireless mouse.

Pros
+ 100% Wireless stability
+ Incredible RGB lighting
+ Great Chroma software
