Designed for All
Boasting an ambidextrous design, the Razer Lancehead is designed for all gamers. Its symmetrical with rubber grips on both sides of its body for a more comfortable thumb and pinky grip. Located above both rubber grips are the forward and back buttons. This is the first gaming mouse that provides 100% accommodation to both left- and right-handed gamers. As a proud owner of the Razer DeathAdder, the Lancehead does give it a run for its money. If I wasn’t a loyal supporter, I would gladly switch over.
Comfort is Key
The Lancehead is great for all sorts of gamer types. The main left- and right-click buttons comes with a deeper click space, great for claw-type gamers. The rubber sides are also long enough to accommodate both the palm- and fingertip-gamer easily.
What these three gaming characteristics have in common with the Lancehead is that all three forms are still extremely comfortable. I’ve tried and tested all three types on games like Dota 2 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. I have yet to have any strain on my fingers, palm or wrist.
Changing DPI on-the-fly
Most gaming mice in the market feature DPI settings up to 12,000 but the Lancehead comes with up to 16,000. Why anyone would want 16,000 DPI setting is beyond me. Through the Razer Synapse program, you can now set your preferred speed and even customise the Razer Chroma lighting featured on the Lancehead. If you have more than one Razer peripheral that comes with the Razer Chroma feature, you can sync them together to pulse at the same time and at the same colour. The two buttons above the scroll wheel allows you to change the DPI to five preset choices.
Wired or Wireless?
This has been a hotly contested debate for a very long time and Razer has decided to put an end to it all with a gaming mouse that can do both extremely well. To use it wirelessly, the Lancehead comes with a 2.4GHz dongle known as Adaptive Frequency Technology. This helps to manage the wireless connection of the Lancehead and it does the job well as I’ve used both versions when gaming and there is literally no difference in performance. Even the battery life on the Lancehead is respectable, clocking over a day but only if you remember to turn it off periodically when not gaming.
While it is a pricey at RM699, the Razer Lancehead is one of the better gaming mice to come out of Razer with the focus on its ambidextrous design and wireless features. If you want the wired-only version, the Lancehead Tournament Edition is only RM389.
