Razer has been relatively quiet lately, but that's changing today. The company's latest release is something of a familiar refresh, with the Lachesis keeping its form factor but gaining a new, more powerful sensor. When it comes to high performance mice, it's all about the sensitivity and response time, with snipers in particular being very aware of how fast their weapon tracks.


The new Lachesis has an upgraded 5600DPI Razer Precision 3.5G laser sensor and a customizable multi-color LED lighting system, the latter of which enables gamers to customize the LED lights on the mouse from a range of 16 million colors. Better still, the new mouse allows gamers to customize those colors individually, so each of the illuminated areas can glow a different color.

If you're interested, you can grab one later this month worldwide for $79.99.

RAZER™ REVAMPS THE RAZER LACHESIS™: FAMILIAR FORM, MORE FUNCTION

Carlsbad, Calif. – August 3, 2010 – Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, is pleased to announce the much anticipated refresh of the legendary Razer Lachesis. Equipped with a new 5600dpi Razer Precision™ 3.5G laser sensor and a customizable multi-color LED lighting system, the newly updated Razer Lachesis maintains its original form, comfort and price, while advancing power, performance and precision.

“The all new Razer Lachesis is about giving gamers more personal choice and customizable options,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “With a multi-color LED for customizable color and a built-in variable dpi, the Razer Lachesis gives gamers everything they need for this three-year fan favorite.”

Gamers now have the choice to customize the LED lights on the mouse from a range of 16 million colors. To top it off, the Razer Lachesis allows gamers to customize those colors individually, so each of the illuminated areas can glow a different color.

About the Razer Lachesis

The new Razer Lachesis is an upgraded replacement for the original ambidextrous mouse and is now equipped with a massive 5600dpi Razer Precision 3.5G laser sensor and nine programmable Hyperesponse™ buttons.

I think most of what you pay for on this mouse in the case that it comes in! I looked at it @ BB and it is roughly the same size as you rstandard mouse.

I keep looking for a mouse that is a little longer and taller so it fits in the palm as well as the fingertips? I dont think I have that big of a hand, but it seems like most mice are made for 15 year olds?

The g9 dosnt feel small at all and i got pretty  big hands. My dad has even bigger hands and loves using the mouse. 

Just my opinion but i think the g9 is an amazing mouse.
