This mouse finally fit the bill well enough for my hand to adjust and learn to use it.
Over the many years it developed a problem that started to bother me:
The left mouse button would have this tactile 'second click' feeling to it. Like a catch, or something. After opening the thing up and investigating, it seems that the little nylon bump from the button flap, had worn a groove into it where it touchs the mechanical switch in the case. This groove would side-saddle during press and cause this double-click feeling when pushing down.
So, I whipped out the JBWeld and filled in the gap, added a little axel grease, and put it all back together. No more odd feeling.
I may be due to buy a new one anyhow, as the surface of this one is getting really work, and the flap 'hinge' (the area that does the actual bending when the button is pushed down) is developing a slight split in the plastic. Its got more then enough plastic left to split through, so it may last another couple years ok.
However, my Death Adder only lasted me a few months. It has degraded with such constant use faster than any mouse I have owned previously. My left mouse button has become sticky to the point where sometimes it thinks I have double-clicked when I have not, and sometimes, when clicking and dragging or clicking and holding, it will release wihtout me and stop its action. Very frustrating!
Also the smoothness has faded. My mouse now jumps around, and when I used it to freehand write or draw, there are segments of my lines that do not show up, as the mouse does not register that my finger is pressing the button the entire time.
Overall, for the price, I think this product should last longer. I loved it, while it lasted, but I'm not paying for a new one every few months.
Seeing that I only used the mouse for about 1-2 hours every day or two...the poor quality is unacceptable.
On the positive side, it is nicely presented with cool packing materials and it tracks very well. The drivers have a cool interface and are easy to use.
One of the main reasons I purchased this mouse was the ability to disable "drift control" which is commonly known as prediction. In order to do this you have to flash the firmware to version 1.28. Unfortunately, they haven't released a firmware update utility that is compatible with 64 bit OS's. Trying to run the updater on Windows 7 x64 resulted in an immediate crash and the mouse freezing until it was unplugged and plugged back in again. Unless you still have a computer running 32 bit Windows you're SOL for now.
The shape just didn't work for me at all. I play with a medium/medium-low sensitivity with one move across my pad as a 180 degree turn. With the Logitech MX series I use a palm grip to move the mouse large distances but also use my fingers to fine tune my aim. The DeathAdder is too large for this to be possible. If you like to use a palm grip exclusively or have very large hands then you will like this mouse, but I couldn't aim with the palm/claw hybrid style I like to use and I started getting wrist pain after less than an hour. For reference, my hand is about average in size. With the MX500 I had room to spare and wouldn't have minded if it were a little bit larger.
It is almost impossible to click the DeathAdder's mouse wheel with your middle finger without changing your hand position. I had to rebind my scope button to Mouse4 in Left 4 Dead 2 because it was simply not possible to use the middle mouse button without moving my trigger finger.
I decided to return the DeathAdder and order an MX518 instead.Read more ›
Having now been using this mouse for over 2 months, I'm extremely happy with the decision, and will likely continue to buy Razer mice in the future as I am that pleased. It feels great, the resolution is great and it not only meets but exceeds my expectations for a mouse. I use this mouse on both IceMat and XTRAC Ripper XL mouse pads and it glides like a champ over both.
I primarily game on my PC, mostly FPS and RPG, would consider myself a hardcore gamer and have been since the Tandy days. Note that I do not use the additional software or driver utilities that come with this mouse, I never do with any mouse. I let the games and the OS do manage the functions, button mappings and profiles. I also never use any on-the-fly resolution switching while gaming (for the DeathAdder you must install the software utility for this functionality).
The product was packaged great and just reaffirms you've bought yourself a quality product. And for anyone wondering or thinking of going back to wired themselves, I do not miss the "no wires" one bit...Read more ›
