Good price,
Another color name: Mercury White is also $24.99 (50%off),

It's a reliable gaming mouse,

It's a bit on the large side.

it is same shape, but uses lower end switches (non-optical), and the tracking sensor is worse (not that it matters unless you're an elite gamer). It's the lower-end switches that would worry me, since the version 1 of the deathadder had a tendency to double-click.

My old deathadder broke after six months of use. Not sure how reliable these things are now a days though.

when you say it broke, what broke exactly? The buttons are doubleclicking? That flaw has been around for many years. They havent fixed and decided to put out version 2 and gradually fade out version 1 inventory. Anyone who RMA V1 gets V2. But those who fall outside the warranty period got suckered.

only works if the attacker is physically accessing your computer.

yeah, the kishi is back on sale(amazon and bestbuy)
I bought it a couple weeks ago and i'm pretty "eh...." satisfied with it. It works, and feels better than the gamesir garbage i had before(G4s) but its not as solid at clamping the top of the phone as i had hoped. Bit too much waggle. For $80 after taxes though, good enough.

damn dude, sick deal. i got one from 2012 and its still killing it good. i had to open it up one time to clean under the clicker,and there was hair collected on the scroller inside, but other than that its an insanely amazing mouse and after the clean it still works perfectly. I highly recommend it. i love the feel of mine, and its so light too.

kinda tempted to buy this deal just to give the mouse as a gift to someone. :P

No damage done to the user who is using this which is us, as others have said. The worst that could happen is that you plug this into a pc and that pc is exposed already.

Or you have malicious actors walking around with the mouse and such.

Any how, there’s no severe harm as it’s not done remotely.

For $30 I'll grab one to keep on the shelf. My kids kill gaming mice often enough that I'll need it sooner or later.

Don't know if Razer had improved their software but I bought a deathadder two years ago and the software ran literally 7 processes in the background. Normally would have just uninstalled it but you had to have it running for custom settings. Not a big deal if you don't care about tweaking the settings but I ended up returning it for a Logitech.

Looks like you just read the title of the article and not the article itself.

Someone needs to plug it into your computer so no risk buying a Razer mouse yourself. Your risk is other people buying it and using it on you.

Actually I did read the article... don't be a dick. Definitely an issue if you use Razer devices in a managed desktop environment.

I would. Ahem. But that's just me because it's very comfortable and smooth.

A lot of organizations don't have controls in place to regulate peripherals their staff bring to the office. I use my own keyboard (HyperX Alloy FPS Pro Tenkeyless) and mouse (Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic) with my computer at work, since I don't like the stuff they supply us with. They monitor if people try to install their own printer or a network device, but mice, keyboard, and a lot of other USB devices aren't monitored. I also work for a government organization. My buddy works at a university and it's the same thing there too, just far worse.
