Razer Lachesis V2 5600 dpi Laser Gaming Mouse Review

Razer debuted the original Lachesis 4000 dpi gaming mouse back in 2007. For its day, the Lachesis was one of the most sensitive mice you could buy, although by today's standards that 4000 dpi mark isn't such a big deal. Razer have updated the Lachesis gaming mouse with a new design and new sensor, the 3.5G laser sensor in this new version supports up to 5600 dpi and the Lachesis has customizable lighting for both the wheel and the logo, which can be set to individual colors dependant on your preference. The Lachesis gaming mouse also features nine programmable buttons with 1000Hz ultrapolling for a 1ms response time.

The Lachesis V2 5600 dpi laser gaming mouse, by design, is also ambidextrous. So those of you out there that may be of the left handed persuasion can also enjoy the benefits of this latest offering from Razer. While the Lachesis is rather large, I can't see it being a problem to those with smaller hands as the curves and design look very well thought out.

I own several razor products. I've had many hours of enjoyment from these products starting with my purchase of the diamondback. However, I've noticed over the past several years that the quality of razer products has been in decline. The last two mice I've owned from Razer (including the V1 of the Lachesis) died or had some severe malfuctions making it unusuable within a month of use. I'm a gamer and I put stress on the mice and keyboards, but this seems like it is a decline in quality rather than a mis-use scenario. I'm hoping that they have taken the time and effort to make their latest editions of products a bit more durable and more reliable out of the box.

Well if this is the case then this review would be duly updated should anything go wrong.
My previous Razer mouse (Krait) lasted well over 3 years of some real hard use, and has only recently started to show signs that it may have had enough.

ive owned many razer products over the years , using mouse and keyboard now in fact , yet this particular mouse was purchased recently and died within 4 weeks ( going through warranty now hopefully ) no power going to mouse and not being recognized when plugged in so im thinking usb fault of some kind ? although razer put out many fine products i would not recommend this particular mouse.

i owned a v1 lachesis and the laser died within 6 months, i then went to logitech and have been playing with the g9 and it is now showing signs of dying. so i decided to give razor another try with the v2 lachesis its died within 2 days and im taking it back this weekend hopefully to get a refund. i owned razor baracuda headphones which have worked really well but after these two episodes i wont be going back to razor products.

Had Lachesis 2 years ago, guess it was V1 :P
1st one didn't work for more then 2h.... Got a new one and throw it in trash in a week. Didn't bother to get a replacement.
Bad bad design and cost way too much.

Even my 10years old basic logitech red led is better, yeah it still work as expected and not like this new mouses that die in a year of heavy use.
Like my RevolutionMX that send double clicks on a single left-click.
Hunting for new mouse... Hope to find something usefull soon.
