5 out of 5 eggsBest FPS Mouse

Pros: This mouse is probably the only mouse I've never complained about. It's light but sturdy, very ergonomic, and pretty durable. I'm occasionally assailed by "gamer rage" and I've thrown it before but always comes back ready to go! Tracks super smooth and very accurate making it on of the best gaming mice on the planet.

I've owned probably 5-6 of the Deathadders since the beginning of their production and I've also tried many other "Elite' gaming mice but the only one that holds up time and time again is the Deathadder. It's simple, efficient and most of all, relatively inexpensive when basing it against it's other competitors that say they're the ultimate in FPS gaming technology. I've tried Mionix, Corsair, Thermaltake and plenty others but Deathadder never leaves my desk.

Cons: The only thing, and it's not even a con, I would like to see some cool customized versions of it. I'd be happy with a few extras with different designs!

4 out of 5 eggsGood gaming mouse

Pros: I've had the mouse for about a year now and it works great, I've only had 1 issue with it.

Cons: After 7-8 months, when I click on the scroll wheel to open a new tab, it'll double click sometimes. Apart from that, there's been no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat first impression

Pros: Accurate tracking, looks awesome, material texture feels wonderful, ergonomics are great, button click response is very crisp

Cons: The cable is still kinked from being bound tightly in packaging but I'm sure that will go away over time.

The side buttons seem slightly to tight in my opinion, but it'll be nice knowing that I won't accidentally click them.

Other Thoughts: It's larger than I expected. I was unsure at first but after using it for a while I really like the size and shape. Other reviews say the death adders break over time and I'm really hoping that's not the case. I really like this mouse so far.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Mouse on the Market

Pros: The Deathadder was my first introduction to Razer, and I couldn't believe the difference. I had used nearly every brand of mouse out there, but as soon as I plugged this in I felt the difference. 3500dpi and the 1000hz ultrapolling make for very smooth and streamlined usage of your computer.
It's more than that though. I usually put the life-span of a mouse at 1-5 years before it's dead. My first deathadder lasted 6 years, surviving spending most of its time in my backpack being banged up.
I tried the Naga too, and some wireless mice, but the deathadder continues to be my favorite--I've even got my non-technical family members converted over to the deathadder simply by having them use it for five minutes. It's comfortable, it's great for gaming, and you would be hard-pressed to find another mouse in the world to top it (including the other Razer-brand mice)

Cons: The fiber braided cord has a longevity issue. Cord memory is the tendency of a cord to keep its rolled-up shape, and you can see the bends on the cord for this when you take it out of the box. Those bends will eventually break the weave and insulation off and that'll be the most common point of failure on this mouse.
To mitigate this, simply unwrap your mouse from the box, straighten the cord, and then tape it to the ceiling by the usb port and let it dangle for a day or two after getting it. Doing this (or anything else to remove the cord memory) will make it so the mouse will last as long as the plastic can endure your gamer-rage level of abuse.

Other Thoughts: Adding one of their control or speed surface mouse pads is a worth-while purchase if you have this mouse, but I had pretty good results with the regular $0.10 mousepads for many years before trying one.
I prefer the control-style surface, and have never lacked for speed since nearly every application and OS lets you configure the mouse speed and 3500dpi tends to be plenty. The downside to a control surface mousepad is that the surface will wear down with use and you'll need to get a new mousepad every 3 years if you want the same experience. The mouse, however, if you fix the cord memory problem, will probably last you through 2 or three mousepads.

4 out of 5 eggsGood mouse

Pros: Fits my hand quite well, despite them being on the smaller side of the aisle (I wear a size 7 wedding ring if that gives you any indication). Left and right click respond very well, and neither has decided to click without my permission. Perhaps that'll come with age. The green LEDs are a nice touch, matches my keyboard and case fans. I've noticed a definite increase in mouse-accuracy when it comes to FPSs; my movements across the screen are much smoother than before (I was using a Logitech gaming mouse). The construction seems fairly solid, nothing protruding or falling apart just yet.

The buttons are minimalistic and placed on the left side of the mouse, perfectly in line with my thumb. It scrolls nicely, with just enough resistance so you're not 'free-scrolling' willy nilly. Conforms to my hand nicely, and my hand doesn't feel stressed after heavy gaming. The braided cable is a nice touch, though I can't comment if it's actually better than traditional cabling - it certainly feels sturdier and a bit tougher than standard USB line, but in terms of the techie specs I have no idea. The gold plated USB connector is aesthetically pleasing, however small the actual hardware advantage (there isn't much, I Googled it). Still it was thoughtful.

Cons: Would prefer to be able to change the Razer logo LED to a steady glow rather than a slow motion flash, but it's still kinda cool. This mouse doesn't allow you to modify the DPI on the fly (I've seen mice with two small buttons in front of the scroll wheel for that very reason). You gotta actually enter the Synapse software to change it. Can be annoying at times but it's a minor inconvenience (Google has told me that this things predecessor had that feature but it was taken out for some reason). It also would not recognize my mousepad when I tried to manually configure it via Synapse. This might be because the mousepad is four years old and has been to Afghanistan, but either way I was hoping to calibrate it to maximize efficiency. Kinda disappointed it wasn't able to work, but the mouse is still insanely accurate so perhaps it doesn't matter.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a nice mouse. I purchased it to compliment my Deathstalker keyboard and they work very nicely together. It does what Razer said it would do, but I docked an egg for the lack of on the fly DPI modification. I've seen much cheaper mice with those buttons, but it is something minor and I knew that before purchasing. And the fact that you can't change the intensity or mode of the LED; the Deathstalker keyboard can be modified, so I was hoping this one was also configurable. But again I knew that before purchase.

If you're a gamer and looking for something step up, this thing is probably for you. It won't clean your car for you or anything, but it is a nice mouse and if you got a couple extra bucks it's well worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsNo better mouse out there

Pros: - Comfortable design that will allow you to game for hours.
- Minimalistic approach - Only 2 extra programmable buttons aside from the main three (left click, right click, scroll click). This is just nice and convenient for me considering that I just don't need a ton of programmable buttons to game.
- Cord length is a plus.

Cons: - Not really a con but, for anyone who has used a previous version of the mouse, the grips on the side can take a little time to adjust to.
- The top surface of the mouse definitely has a different feel than it's predecessor (Not a con, but making note as it threw me off initially)

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a fantastic gaming mouse and I'd recommend it to anyone out there interested in a comfortable gaming mouse. If you're like me and have used the previous version of the product then, be prepared for some slight adjustments. However, that break-in period is rather short. A great buy...enjoy it!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for large hands

Pros: Big for large hands, great tracking, sturdy build. I had a G9X that failed on me after a year, very disappointing. Picked up the DeathAdder and am loving it! Not more hand cramps during dungeon runs!

Cons: None, I do not like having a ton of buttons on my mouse for gaming (everything is hot keyed) so this mouse works great.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this to anyone with big hands that get cramped while playing.
