Razer products don't last very long, they tend to break quick

I had been looking for a gaming mouse with a sleek, clean design without so many buttons, this is by far the best one.

First off, I have an excellent wifi signal which is Rings go-to source for all of the problems we have experienced with the camera/microphone/speaker.

Not sure if anything's changed in recent years (in terms of mice, I know KBs were not the longest lasting) but my Deathadder 3.5G from 2012 is still working great.

Anyways, there's absolutely nothing elite about this or any other razer mouses. Cheap, frail internals/constructions) that will break the moment you open them. shit drivers, high rate failures ranging from cable failures, to annoying double/triple clicks, to middle mouse buttons partial failures or complete failures.

If these were a one time/product thing, I wouldn't be as critical and as adamant about warning people but these issues have clearly never been addressed at any point having appeared in multiple different product year after year, iteration after iteration letting people believe they reworked their approach but no. The fact that every single product and all of their iterations without exception going for over a decade now have consistently shown the exact same issues is so troubling to me that I have to wonder how has that company not gone under. It's not like they're headsets are any better and they're keyboards although not horrible, minus shitty practices like non standard rows, they are nothing to brag about next to the multitude of good mechs choice we have now.

Don't get me wrong, I don't recommend a single headset or keyboard from logitech either for the same reasons as razer but goddamn have they got their mouses stuff on point. Best sensor on the market, good solid internals, great costumer support, innovative designs.

Death adder is the most comfortable mouse I've used or tried.

Since 2008 I've owned two and they both lasted ~6 years each of being tossed around in a backpack and heavy gaming use before they started developing the dreaded double-click of death.

YMMV but it's the best value mouse on the market for my use, I'll happily pay $45 to replace it every 6 years.

Would not recommend this mouse, I feel there are much better options out there. I got double clicking issue after one year of use and couldn't fix it.

No, not really - maybe their cheaper variations. I've had my Razer Mamba since 2009, and the right click just gave out this past week - and it only is not functional for gaming purposes where you need to rapidly/precisely click many times. I can still use it for regular functions without issue. Ordered another one without hesitation.

Ordered it during black friday but returned it.
Build quality was good and i liked the minimalist style but it was too big for my hands.
Feels like the thing is designed for L or XL hands. Ended up going with a cheaper logitech cause it just fit better.
