Is Razer Basilisk v3 worth buying?

I've been using G502 for almost 3 years now and I've been blowing air to fix the double click issue on its switch for over a year and half. I don't know the science behind it but blowing air on switch always fix double click for some reason.

Since my hands are abnormally large G502 fits perfectly and that's why I've been hesitant to switch to any different mouse but after looking at how similar Basilisk v3 is to G502 i'm now extremely tempted to buy it.

All I want to know is does it fa omegle ce similar issues like G502 does? i.e double click? Also how's the scroll wheel? The infinite scroll wheel it has is software driven so are there any bugs? Since the scroll wheel is made out of plastic, are there anynxender cases of loosing scroll wheel teeth overtime? And finally since the infinite scroll wheel activation is mechanical are there any cases of broken infinite scroll wheel lock?

You can not make sure all the mice they sent out are exactly the same, so you can't be sure if there's a specific question. But if you are used to using G502, then I bet you will like it. Normally a new mouse will not have the issue you stated unless you were the lucky one.
This is not related to the current conversation at all, but I am having a bit of trouble getting Razer Synapse to configure the colors of my mouse LEDs.

I've liked mine a lot, I don't use the infinite part of the scroll wheel so I can't speak for that but it's been great. It has optical switches on the main mice buttons so it shouldn't ever get the double click issue like Logitech.

@ryoukarla are you a gamer? want to face 0 interference from wires when gaming?

I had my days of wired mouse
I would get a Basilisk Ultimate + mouse dock.

Basilisk V3 RGB lighting is cool, but the free movement of wireless, makes you have less distraction of mouse wire being pulled / getting in the way.

The dimension of RAZER Basilisk is a little smaller then G502, but the key switches have been upgraded to opti-key switches that deliver faster responses and more key presses than the old keys.

Scrolling wheel? cool thing about Basilisk ULT, is that you can adjust the resistance of the wheel to your perfection.

If you are part of zSilver program, with a bit of effort, you can get it for free (except for shipping fee) by collecting and exchanging 170000 zSilvers from RAZER zGold

Which is what I have done.

It is worth buying not only gamers but also 3d graphic designers. It's DPI give us the access to control accuracy and fast movement.
