I've bought 3 in the past week, 2 have had defects. The mouse is one of them, and I find it of poor build quality all around.
One of the side buttons on this mouse was defective, it rapid fires (confirmed with raw USB input). The seam towards the palm where the top meets the bottom was poorly cut, I was able to feel it on my palm. I can see compared to my previous DeathAdder I'm replacing, and my other DeathAdder Chroma, that there are obvious differences in the builds. I have bought fake Razer mice off eBay in the past (knowingly) and they had similar differences. This could very well be a legit mouse but it has obvious build quality issues.
First it arrived in an obviously a fake box which I will include pictures of.
- The first sign is that the front of the box does not even match the one from the picture. It is surprising that they didn't even put in effort to try the box art from the picture of the item. Also with a quick google search you can look up the original box art and comparisons against fake ones like the one I received.
- The more obvious flaw is the bottom of the box. The bottom should always have a S/N code matching the one found on the Razer product being purchased. If it does not, the product is guaranteed to be a fake like mine.
- And obviously to top it off the sides and back of the box do not match the picture or any genuine product picture online.
Even though I knew the product was fake I thought I would check it out. I have seen some high quality fakes on eBay before so I thought I would check out the build quality on this one.
- The first bad sign was that the plastic packaging on the product didn't correctly line up with the mouse, which is very common in fake mouses. You can go to any local store and check out one of their newer products to see how it should correctly fit.
- After opening the packaging I was able to look at the mouse which was covered on only the bottom by some plastic which was also not correct.
- More notably though was the poor build quality of the product. the sides that connected the top piece to the base were not even close to being flush. I have included a picture of mine for comparison of how the should line up. This shows that its not only a fake, but a low quality fake which probably means that other internal parts such as the censor were likely cheaply made as well.
- Also checking the underside of the mouse I could see that the writing around the censor in the middle was slightly askew.
- Looking at the S/N on the bottom you can also tell that it is not correctly lined up and is too big and out of focus. This is less noticeable with the writing underneath it, but is definitely there.
- I also decided to check the length of the chord against my mouse as well. From my experience this seems to be one of the parts that is the most common indicator that the product is fake. And while this one was close it was still about 3 inches off what my original mouse had.
In closing, remember that this product has been out of production for some time and is not longer created or distributed by Razer. If the company says they got their product from a factory, then it is also obviously a reproduction of the original product. Also be aware that these products can be spoofed to appear as real products on synapse so that is not a good way to check the authenticity.
The best way to check is:
- Looking at the box and checking that it matches the picture from the item, and matches the pictures you can find online.
- The bottom of the box has an S/N code that matches the product inside the box
- Checking the product inside. If it looks or feels like poor build quality then it probably is.
- Check the underside of the product. Does the S/N number look skewed or out of focus? Does the ring around the censor look off center?
- Check the chord length of the product. In my case I had one to compare but measuring out the 7 feet with a tape measure will work as well. I have seen high quality fakes where this is the more obvious tell.
Remember that is product is not longer in production, but the demand for Razer products still is so fakes are very common with this product. Luckily, these factories cannot exactly mirror the original items so being vigilant can make sure you do not purchase a fake product from a seller on Amazon.
The connection has never lagged for me, even for a second, and the grip is very comfortable - it's compatible with claw, finger-tip, or palm type grips as the mouse is fairly large, but still comfortable and easy to maneuver with my small (teenage :C) hands.
However, my game tastes (and the gaming industry) have changed and I need a mouse with higher DPI.
The only thing that's seem to be "broken" is the scroll wheel. It hasn't seem to be working properly for some time now - every time I scroll up it keeps "jumping" down, even when I do it slowly by increments. It's very annoying but I can get used to it since you don't need to scroll in video games, and most of the time that's what I'm doing.
I love(d) the blue breathing light as I often turned off the lights and kept playing games to not wake up my parents (they're Asian, they notice every single detail and almost wake up to anything I do), so that helped me find the mouse in the dark. However I have a new desk and entirely new computer now (from laptop to desktop, finally), and I have a keyboard tray and can't see the awesome glow. It's still a nice plus though.
I'm probably going to upgrade to a Razer Chroma when sales come around. However, I highly recommend this to any casual and hardcore gamer.
Now, to find a headset equivalent to this mouse...
1. To unlock all functionality, you need to install Razer's software and register for an account. Great, another icon in the system tray and a user registration.
2. The software is buggy. There's always something: If it's not crashing, it's not saving the settings properly.
3. The mouse itself is shoddily made. The cord is excellent, but the body doesn't feel premium. The mouse eventually skips - not in cursor movement but in clicking. That is, if you try to drag and drop something from point A to point C, it will release at point B. You can google "razer mouse skipping" if you want to see.
Anyways, these are inexcusable for a mouse of this price. I've had better experiences with $10 Microsoft mice. Two stars and not one just because the cord is so nice.
