I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve tried several wireless gaming mice, and I always end up back to a wired mouse. The idea has always been intriguing - that a wireless mouse can be just as lag-free as a wired one. Logitech promised this with the G700 and G900 and they mostly achieved it and I’ve had a good experience with those mice. Razer notified us this morning they have a brand new wireless gaming mouse called the Lacehead, and it operates at the 2.4GHz band.
The complete press release is below - here are the highlights:
- “outperforms every other wireless gaming mouse.”
- 16,000 DPI, 210 IPS, and 50 G acceleration
- Own the Lancehead and you get access to the Razer Synapse Pro beta desktop software for Razer’s accessories
Official press release follows.
