The Razer Lancehead could change your opinion on using a wireless mouse for gaming.

Available in the May/June timeframe, the $150 mouse (approximately AU$200 or £120) uses a proprietary 2.4GHz wireless technology that lets the Lancehead automatically hop frequencies within the band to maintain a lag-free connection with your PC. Razer claims that it will outperform every other wireless gaming mouse.

Along with the unique wireless, the mouse features mechanical mouse switches, two DPI buttons to instantly change sensitivity and new hybrid onboard and cloud memory for storing performance profiles.

Razer also has a wired version, the Lancehead Tournament Edition, available now for $80. Check out their full specs below.
