A gaming mouse (high dpi laser and wired rather than wireless) has a quickness and consistency that wireless laser mice just cannot match. I have owned a number of gaming mice over the years and while I have liked them all, I think this one is the very best so far.

The most important issue here is the shape of the mouse. The top (left and right) buttons of this mouse are a continuous part of its top surface rather than being separate buttons like on the Diamondhead or the Copperhead. For me, this is important because it makes the mouse feel much smoother when my hand rests on it. As a result, my hand rests more naturally on this mouse than any other.

Another important issue is the carefully thought-out shape of the basic right and left buttons on this mouse. Note that these buttons have a subtle up-and-out curvature that allows one's fingers to rest more naturally and to click faster and with greater precision than with the uniformly downwardly curved (or convex) buttons on mice made by manufacturers like, say, Logitech.

Previously, I liked the shape of the Microsoft 6000 gaming mouse (not to be confused with the ubiquitous Microsoft 6000 wireless mouse) the best. But the shape of this mouse is clearly better.

Many gamers do like the Logitech mice, but I have always felt that the curvature and shape the G5 and MX518 mice is a bit off. The problem is that the fingers do not rest as naturally relaxed and yet poised on a downwardly curved surface as they do on a surface with a slight and subtle upturn at the front edge of the basic right and left buttons.

Verified Purchase
I have used most gaming mice that have been released since year 2000. Prior to the Deathadder, my mouse of choice was the Logitech G5. I am not going to bash either mouse. Both are very good. However, I prefer the Deathadder more.

(Note: Make sure you upgrade firmware. This does make a difference in the lift off issue that some people have complained about)

After tweaking the sensitivity to about where I like it, I noticed that the Deathadder feels more smooth and accurate than the G5. I am not sure if it is the 1000hz polling or the sensor, but something feels very right about it. The only movement issue I had was getting used to the lift off height. The new firmware improves this a lot. However, it took a couple of days to train myself to lift the mouse slighlty higher, but I am completely used to it now. I think the G5 might initially be more user friendly here, but it only takes a matter of a few days to get used to the Deathadder.

The other items that feel "right" to me are the side buttons. They seem to be perfectly balanced for just the right amount of pressure to make it easy to depress, but tough enough to not accidently press them. I really don't care about "Back" and "Forward" in internet explorer. I just want usable buttons to bind inventory items in games. The G5 was a bit of a let down there with only one, reasonably hard button to depress.

The scroll wheel in my opinion is better than the G5. The Deathadder again seems like Razer found the perfect compromise in scroll click feel. However, like most mice, the scroll wheel button is really not an option in a high intensity online game.

I know I will be heavily criticized for this review since most on here are positive but I'm just relaying my honest opinions as objectively as possible here.

I owned a Copperhead before I bought this mouse so the weight, thickness and the flatness of the Deathadder were a pretty big difference. This mouse isn't half as nimble as the copperhead because the copperhead has angled edges that allow you to rotate your wrist just slightly when you move the mouse from side to side. It allows you to move the mouse much quicker because you don't have to lift it off the mat at a totally straight angle. You can't do that with the Deathadder because it doesn't have angled edges that taper upwards like the Copperhead. It feels very stiff and slow in comparison.

The tracking also seemed weird to me. There's talk about positive acceleration problems on the razer forums so I think this might have been the reason for it. Basically the mouse felt as though I was moving it through some sort of sludge like there was some weird resistance to the movements. I spent a couple of days tweaking different settings but just couldn't find any that worked for me. The tracking just feels less precise to me than the copperhead.

Problems with the ergonomics: The hump in the back is too highly angled. The wheel in the center is very high up in comparison to the notches in the left and right buttons. The first thumb button is in a very weird position that requires you to stretch your thumb to reach it. Truthfully though I returned this mouse because the tracking just didn't feel right to me. I probably could have lived with the ergonomics otherwise but the tracking just felt off to me no matter how much I tweaked with it.
