The mouse feels well built and very solid.

It should be noted that I have larger than average hands, and the arch of the DeathAdder fits to my palm in a very comfortable way.

After trying out the Logitech MX518, Logitech G5, Razer Copperhead, and Razer Deathadder, I easily sided with this mouse.

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.

Speed and control:
This mouse is extremely precise and it is easy to adjust its sensitivity with the proper drivers.

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.

UPDATE, 4/18/2009: After nearly two years, my DeathAdder has been experiencing problems. The finish is starting to come off of the top of the mouse, and the left mouse button is intermittently cutting in and out such that if I try to click and drag anything, it stops halfway through. Thankfully, the warranty is two years and I will most likely be getting a replacement. However, before you read the glowing review below, keep in mind that you may suffer issues in the long term.

ANOTHER UPDATE, 2/25/2014: Nearly five years later, my DeathAdder replacement is still going strong. Either Razer has improved their mouse manufacturing processes or I just got unlucky last time. Either way, kudos to them. They've also updated their software several times since I first wrote this review, so my gripes about the install are no longer valid and I've deleted them. The Razer software v2.0 works great on PC and Mac (though if you want to get the forward and back buttons to work on Mac, it's much easier to use a free third-party program like BetterTouchTool than it is to try to use macros, which are still hilariously broken).

I'm a gamer, but loathe PC-based first-person shooters. So one might think this mouse overkill for someone like me. However, I splurged on this mouse anyhow thinking it might come in handy elsewhere, be it in Warcraft 3 or just a web browser.

The first thing you notice right after you plug it in is that it looks cool. The scroll wheel is a bright blue, and the Razer logo gives off a soft blue pulsing glow. However, you can turn the lights off in software if this isn't your thing, which is a nice plus.
