Without a doubt, the razer is one of the best gaming mouse manufacturing company and has been carrying the name ever since it came into existence.

The Deathadder mouse series is by far the most successful and therefore the widely known product the company has ever produced.

Professional Gamers are of the mindset that if you are ever confused about buying the best mouse available in market, you should opt for the razer Deathadder and you will be instantaneously satisfied with your investment.

Why buy the Deathadder Elite?

Deathadder Elite comes with a 16,000 CPI optical sensor, seldom will someone boost up the CPIs to that figure, therefore, the biggest hitching factor for the deathadder is the addition of the PMW-3366 sensor which has been manufactured by Pixart in collaboration with Logitech. The sensor has been the most favorite ever since it was introduced back in the year 2014. Some may argue that the sensor is old and may not perform as good as a modern sensor, but those allegations are only limited until you use it and feel the precision that the sensor adds to the Deathadder Elite. The software of course plays a vital role in adding up to the precision and the overall quality of the mouse.

The design is yet another amazing factor in the mouse, it has matte plastic finish that lets you have a firm grip over the shape of the mouse. If you are someone who gets sweaty hands after holding a mouse for a while, you don’t need to worry at all. The mouse still feels as amazing as it should even with a sweaty hand. The design is wide enough to easily accommodate wet hands while letting you keep the grip that is the most comfortable for your use.

The buttons are soft and you can get used to the click almost immediately. The buttons are designed in a way to give a feeling of a soft touch while they are hard enough to keep them from being touched accidently. There are two small buttons situated under the mouse wheel that lets you adjust the CPIs with a single touch and two buttons situated at the left side of the mouse just over the rubber grip for the thumb. The buttons are easily accessible and can be custom programmed for any functionality that one may like.

The mouse weighs 105 grams that weighs less as compared to its competitors, Steel Series Rival 700 and Logitech G502, that weighs 135g and 168g, respectively. However, the weight of the mouse is everyone’s personal preference. According to professional opinion, the lighter and simpler is the better option. At the end of the day, you are the one to choose which option suits you better.

The Downside

By far, most of the people must think that the Razer Deathadder Elite is just perfect and that maybe the case for some, but there are a few downsides to the mouse as well. The first one is the absence of free-spinning scroll wheel, which may not be a big factor for gamers in particular. The second downside is setting up the mouse for use the first time, Razer’s software, Synapse, has a first-time login that requires a user to sign up “online” before using the software. Believe it or not, 80% of the bad reviews revolve Synapse.
