Toggling between the two on the page, it appears the Essential has a lower DPI - 6400 vs. 16k for the regular. Also the regular has an adjustable scroll wheel (for how hard it is to turn?) and one more button compared to the Essential.

The laser is more accurate. But yes, no one is going to be using the mouse at 16K dpi. The slightest movement and the mouse cursor will be on Mars.

What's the difference between the regular Basilisk and the Basilisk Essential? This or the Death Adder?

I have the wireless version of this mouse and its by far the best mouse i've ever owned! This one is a fantastic deal even if its wired. Very comfortable mouse for people with med to large hands and the thumb rest is awesome. Highly recommend if you are a gamer or even if you use use your computer or work stuff.

This, plus there's only one size clutch (side thumb paddle) on the essential. I can't reach the clutch paddle on the essential as well as I hoped since I'm used to palm grip. You can reach it easily if you claw grip. I couldn't tell if the longer paddle of the 2 that come with the regular basilisk is longer than the one with the essential.

Agreed. Got this on a deal as an impulse buy (16k dpi and wireless version), and it's been great. Works great for games and is slowly replacing my MX master 3 as my daily/work driver too.

I hated the Mamba but I've had other really good Razer mice. I'll give this one a shot.

So many versions. I no longer see the Elite versions on the Razer website. Elite's were 16K DPI Sensors. I guess they were replaced by the V2's. I bought the DeathAdder Elite last Dec for $25, so trying to figure out if this is really a good deal? I know this is the Basilisk, but I think this and the DeathAdder are somewhat similar levels. I see DeathAdder Elite is $34.99 at Gamestop.
