Razer Deathadder Elite review


The DeathAdder Elite looks familiar, but the power under its hood takes it to new heights.

Sturdy, solid construction ; Solid software support ; Clicky, responsive buttons

RGB lighting is covered during use

Razer’s DeathAdder may have added the word Elite to its name, but it’s the same DeathAdder that fans of the mouse have come to know and love. With modest upgrades to sensor DPI, accuracy, and a couple extra buttons, it would be more accurate to call...

Razer DeathAdder Elite Review — New Buttons, Classic Design


The only real criticism I can level at the DeathAdder Elite is that adding two extra buttons is a very mild upgrade for a yearly refresh. On the other hand, nothing about the mouse really needed to be fixed. It's still easy to grasp and performs well...

Comfortable grip ; Great software ; Versatile performance ; Pretty illumination

The Razer DeathAdder Elite is a comfortable, easy-to-use option for stay-at-home adventurers and tournament jockeys alike.
