Great mouse


I would suggest this mouse to any entry level to mid level gamer or PC users.

Great mouse, nice feeling, hold in hand correctly. Like the light on the top, doesn't help your gaming skills but it s nice to look at :)

Razer DeathAdder


I purchased a blue DeathAdder for $60--item N82E16826153024--on 7/21/2008, and after six years of faithful service (83 cents a month!) it finally developed the double-click problem. NewEgg got me this mouse in 5 business days with the Super Egg...

Exactly as advertised. Great grip (top and sides), excellent performance, smooth sliding, looks sharp, nice tangle-free cord, drivers installed just fine

The button clicks are louder than the average mouse

Fantastic side buttons and ergonomics


This mouse is really good once you turn off the Razer logo, and with a decent price tag it is well worth it.

Feels great in my hand, the ergonomics of this mouse are really good ; The scroll wheel has a nice grippy surface, great for precision scrolling ; The best part however are the two extra side buttons which are in the perfect spot for my thumb ; Mouse...

Don't really like the Razer logo in the middle of the mouse, as it can be distracting when it brightens up. I was able to turn that off however in the Synapse 2.0 software which was good

Problems on arrival


Company with high volume of sales, that has excellent customer service

Mouse arrived with a damage microswitch (left click) straight out of the box. I have purchased multiple razer products in the past and never had something with problems out of the box. Razer has had a nice level of quality control and I have never had...

NOT a palm grip


THIS IS A CLAW GRIP MOUSE. i can't emphasize this enough. don't buy if you want a palm grip mouse. go get the Logitech G400 if you're a palm gripper. i know razer's site says it's a palm grip, and there are exceptions to what i'm saying, but i...

FPS mouse - this mouse has seen competitive usage from the amateur to professional FPS scenes, mainly in Quake and the CS titles. unless you're an old-school bad boy who still uses an IM, this mouse will allow you to play to the best of your abilities....

had some issues with it during the first month of ownership on the mechanical click (double-clicked instead of single click sometimes), but it happened less and less frequently, so i'll attribute that to "breaking it in ; wheel click starting to get...

Good bang for the buck.


I know that I stated I've only had this mouse for not even a day at the time of writing, but I would easily recommend this mouse to anyone looking to get the bang for the buck.

Very well designed; Feels hefty but doesn't feel like you're holding a brick, either ; Good grips; This mouse isn't going anywhere unless you make it go ; Braided cord; This baby should last longer than a normal, rubber coated cord would. At least if...

None that I can think of off the top of my head

Overrated, overmarketed


The grips texture is too dense, so you're just resting your thumb/ring/pinky on a bunch of little rubber dots that don't even stick out more than .1mm. If they were spaced better, or used a stickier rubber, it would help the mobility of the mouse. Too...

Flawless sensor, very functional/comfortable scroll wheel/clicks, solid switches with great feel, build quality is top notch, looks beautiful

Side grips are 100% useless after 1 day of use (I have semi-sweaty hands, but not over the top). Not good for EVERY grip. Mainly designed for palm grip. Loud switches (not a big con). So heavy that it is hard to comfortably lift (and worthless side...

Very Surprised...Mouse died on first day


I'm torn whether I should replace this mouse with the same model, but I'm leaning that way. I feel I just got a "bad" one, which can happen with any PC item you buy. I bought a "Blackwidow" Keyboard at the same time and it has been incredible! I'm...

Nice design & feel. I liked the spacing of the side buttons. The lighting was really nice

I researched several gaming mice before purchasing this one. I've owned several "Razer" mice/keyboard over the years and have always enjoyed them. The moment I plugged it in and installed the drivers, the mouse would intermittently go off. I...

Overrated, but still good quality


I am hoping this is just because I am not used to this mouse, as I have owned it for under a week. However, when something is reviewed to "fit like a glove," aka a 5 star product, it must be absolutely flawless. This mouse isn't. I havent tried any...

Quality materials ; Phenomenal sensor ; Great feedback on ALL clicks (even side buttons, very rare in mice) ; Looks great ; Getting adjusted to this new grip (see below for details) is actually a blessing in disguise. I am more accurate when I pinch...

I am a MOBA/FPS player, of above average (pub domination in servers is slightly above average, even a k/d of 10:1, high level means you play with others at the high/est level) skill level. My grip is a claw/fingertip grip, but not purely either. Pretty...

Great shape and worked ok... for a while


I like the mouse and am looking for one similar but with better quality. gave it a 2 since it worked for about 2 years before the double-click issue started. For the price, it should have lasted longer.

Great feel, worked like a mouse

Started the double-click issue so many have had ; High price for what it is
