Razer has had the Lachesis out for a while now but it's time for a little upgrade to the mouse that keeps on going. In place  of the old 4000DPI sensor is now a 5600DPI 3.5G laser sensor offering up higher resolution. If your old Lachesis just wasn't sensitive enough for you, the new one should do nicely.

If you're into colored lighting, the new Lachesis will let you customize the LED system that's now embedded into the system. Yeah, it's just for looks but all the gaming peripherals seem to do it so why not this one as well. It's always nice to see a good solid product get a little update to keep up with the times.


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.
