[Amazon.com] Razer DeathAdder Elite $43.29

Slightly cheaper than previous price of $44.99. Decent price for decent mouse. Lowest price on Camel camel camel.
Bought it as a backup for when my Zowie ZA12. Personally I did not like Logitech mice.

Great mouse but I would personally go for the Red Dragon Centrophorus for 1/3rd the price.

I have older deathadder and a 'red dragon' msi mouse, performance is fine but the feel of the plastics is not comparable at all.

For under $50 dollars, its an affordable back up for when my zowie dies. And supposedly, Razer had gotten better after it went public. Also, I have fat hands so it was a no-brainer for me.

I picked one up. Retired my old MX mouse from ten years ago. Just built a new pc. I kind of like it so far. We'll see how long it lasts or if driver issues shows up.

Yep, but I have yet to find a mouse as comfortable as this mouse sub$100. But yes, Synapse is absolute garbage.

Couldn't tell the difference in performance or in the quality. The only reason I would go for the death adder is if you prefer much larger mouses, but even then for 3x the price. It's a big no.

What's better, that or a G403/G305? Don't know if the HERO sensor is worth getting. I have my current mouse set to 800 DPI.

I personally did not like Logitech. I had the G502 and the wheel was weird. Returned and got the Zowie and I have been happy. I jumped on this because it is good for people with larger hands. Honestly, with mice, you do need to try it and see what fits your hand best and if it works with the style you use (palm, fingertip or claw?). I have also read the razer mouse clicks are a bit mushy.

i'm on the other side and stuck to the g502. seems the value of this deathadder stuck to 44ish after bf.

The hero sensor is worth it IMHO.

The only thing this mouse has going for it is that it's good for large hands palm grippers and that's pretty much it. The fact that the OP moved from Logitech to razer and thinks he upgraded is absolutely astounding to me!

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.

Just to clarify, I have never used a razer product before. The mouse I do use is my Zowie but for 50 dollars, I am happy to give it a try as only a back up. Also, would I recommend razer mechs, nor have I ever used one, as you can find much better products at a similar price point. Also I agree that it is good for people with large hands.

I had a Razer abysus fail within a few months , they sent me another to replace and it's been going strong for nigh on 10 years.

Just got a havit bundled with a keyboard and the havit isn't as sensitive as the Razer.

Not trying to come off as a fan boy, but had a Razer mouse for 9 years absolutely loved it until the left click acted up. Tossed it, tried various cheap mouses over two years and finally got a Logitech. It just felt too small.

Got this mouse on Black Friday from Microsoft @ $40 I believe. And I missed it, I love this mouse.

Maybe I just have big hands but their mouses just feel great and fit nicely.

Good basic mouse for large hand palm grip users. If you use a claw or fingertip grip, there are many better options.
