Designing a gaming mouse to meet the exacting demands of the eSports elite, takes cutting edge technology, coupled with incredible ergonomics, and extended durability. The Razer DeathAdder Elite features the world’s most advanced optical sensor, the all-new Razer™ Mechanical Mouse Switches as well as the stellar ergonomics that the top eSports professionals worldwide swear by, so you’ll have unsurpassable accuracy and speed to dominate the playing field.
I've been using Razer mice for over a decade, and I have a masochist relationship with Razer. Razer has horrible build quality, but the mouses are very ergonomic and comfy. So despite all the crappy endurance issues, I keep returning because I'm a sucker for the Deathadder.
I usually get about 1 or 2 years of use out of a Razer mice before some sort of issue makes it unplayable. For the original and Chroma deathadders, it was a misclicking issue (>10% of all click attempts) with the scrollwheel or right mouse button. This Deathadder Elite continues the same depressing trend. I begrudingly upgraded to this Razer Deatheradder Elite on 12/31/17 after my Chroma was doing the misclicking issue. Its been about a year and a half now, and there is an audible loose component inside of the mouse that makes the Deathadder rattle. What the heck! Since its been over a year and the fact that Target isnt even considered an authorized reseller, the warranty will not help me. Since there hasnt been a model upgrade since the Deatheradder Elite and I can only assume that another Deatheradder Elite will just have the same issue after a year of use, I will try a different manufacturer.
I am an adult, I do not lash out, and I take care of my possessions and living area. This mouse has only been subjected to normal use.
-Most ergonomic mouse I know
-Improve mouse feet vs. Chroma model
-2 new button under mouse were a great addition
-No issues with the hardware components (sensor, cable, rgb LEDs, etc)
-Rubber textured pad on sides is weakly adhered. Still sticky enough to stay on, but a little bit of force and you can "feel" the rubber pads start to physically slide around
-Razer Synapse bloatware
I've never purchased a mouse from Razer before but I have heard great things about them. This mouse is no exception. It took me a while to get used to the shape but the mouse feels comfortable and the buttons are easily accessible. Also you get rgb which can be controlled with the Razer synapse software that you can download from their website. The dpi goes up to 16000!!! If you are looking for a mouse with more buttons go with the Razer mamba but if you don't need anything fancy this mouse will serve you well. The mouse also came on time. Good buy!
The mouse works and and the lights look great, has a lot of features you can customize. I bought it for my husband but because I use it too, the mouse is a little bit big for my hands. Also, he said you can't install the drivers unless you sign up for an account online. To me, it's just a mouse, but my husband seems to really like it.
It's nice and light, which I've found works best for gaming, and the big low-friction pads on the bottom of the mouse make movement silky smooth. Customizable DPI presets make switching between detail work vs. macro movement a breeze. I find this handy when switching between a 4K resolution desktop and various games. The software to customize the mouse requires an account signup and becomes useless when the Razer servers are down (found this out the hard way as they happened to be down when I was installing it for the first time), which is the biggest downside. That hardware itself worked amazingly well out of the box without any additional work.
