Razer Deathadder Elite review


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 Optical Gaming Mouse Review and Ratings


This fast, precise MOBA mouse is a hardware winner; only its macro editor keeps it from stardom.

Attractive, ergonomic design ; Excellent optical sensor ; Separate X/Y-axis tweaking ; Lift-distance wizard

Ho-hum macro editor ; Registration requirements ; No support for angle-snapping or deceleration

Regardless, the Deathadder Elite remains a fine performer. Its speedy, precise movement and aim place it among the better mice we've tried in recent years in fast-paced games that rely heavily on coordination and reflexes. Synapse needs some better...

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

Almost the same as last year's model ; Nothing to set it apart from close competitors

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

Great Mouse


So I'd read many reviews saying you'd need fairly big hands to use it comfortably and that's slightly true, but it's still very comfortable and easy to use and I have very tiny hands. Takes some getting used to if you aren't used to a mouse like this...

Epic gaming mouse.


Perfect for any gaming. Also you get razor software to edit speed of mouse and you can change colours. Overall the best mouse I've ever owned. Would defiantly recommend to anyone considering changing to this.

Good mouse but feet are very thin.


Great over gaming mouse. But the main draw back is the mouse feet are ultra thin and already just 4 months later I have had to order a new mouse. Due to the fact razer do not stock to correct feet for this mouse only the older ones. Not happy.

Loads of Features


Just bought this for my wife who doesn't game at all. However she likes the feel and comfort of the mouse which I have to agree having a similar gaming mouse myself its a pretty top mouse. It's light weight and the 16000dpi makes it super fast if you...

It's a very nice Mouse, very good for gaming, i'd recommend ONLY people with Medium - Large hands buying this because it is quite a beefy Design. I have Small - Medium and because my hands didn't fit very well i was kind of disappointed. But every...
