Razer Basilisk uncicking/deselecting


I just got the Basilisk a few days ago and I started noticing something happening. When I hold the LMB down and I start to slowly release it, sometimes the mouse unclicks/deselects while the button is still clicked. After trying to replicate the issue I found out that it happens quite consistently when holding the button with just a little bit of pressure.
I want to know if this is a known issue, or something other people have experienced. It's not exactly experience-breaking since the mouse is perfect in every other regard but I want to know if it's a defect that I can claim to get a replacement.
I barely notice it in-game since I either press the button hard or not at all, but doing ordinary computer tasks I tend to notice it quite a lot more.

EDIT: Furthermore, when releasing pressure from the button with the intention to unclick/deselect, the mouse responds earlier than the actual *click* of the mouse and by doing so, deselects earlier than when I intended.

EDIT 2: So far I've played FPS games with the mouse and it works fine but I can see how this can become a problem when I play RTS games where I need to select units and structures and the mouse is responding earlier than when I need it.

Hello! What's the current polling rate set to? Have you tried lowering it?

Hello! What's the current polling rate set to? Have you tried lowering it?

Polling rate was at 1000.
However, I did try uninstalling the Razer Synapse software so I might have been using it a lower polling rate unwittingly. (depending on what the default is without software) And the problem still occurred.
Got a replacement mouse from the reseller. This one seems to be working fine.

Thanks for the update. Got that. Please let me know if you need more help.
Okay so I've been using the new mouse since I last wrote that I received the replacement. The problem was not present in the beginning, just like the last one I had, but it started occurring again after a while. I've been using this one for a longer period than I had the last one and I can say that it's not nearly as severe. The fact of the matter is, though, it's still there and it happens on a, I'd say, 3-6% basis of all clicks. I'm starting to wonder if this is a product batch or product line problem, but whatever it is, I was not expecting it from a mid-to-high-end mouse.
Anyway, I am not looking to complain about it, just thought it'd be a good idea to let the community know.
It's an overall great product and the support I got from Razer was top-notch.
