Dan Gutman –
Although I’ve never cared for the aesthetics or branding (it’s very tryhard and aimed at teenagers) in of Razer the overall build quality, ergonomics, and responsiveness of the mouse overcome any reservations.This is a wired mouse but unlike traditional hard rubber coated mouse cables this one is wrapped in a soft but sturdy woven material. It makes it so it doesn’t noticably resist as traditional mouse cables would which allows for smooth operation and makes for easy cable management. Not having to charge is great and makes the mouse light for it’s size.The size is fairly large, a bit larger than I’m personally used to but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. For most women or kids it might be too large though.It has lights with presets that can be turned off with Razer’s software ( that you have to download unfortunately,) if you’re into that. I turn mine off or on the lowest setting as I find them distracting.The buttons are nice and clicky and very fast. They are pretty sensitive with very little pressure needed to engage. Useful for gaming but not so sensitive that you’ll misclick (at least for me). There are 7 main buttons, all programmable, more than most people need but they’re good to have. The mouse wheel is nice and clicky and operates smoothly. The only thing I wish it had was a fast scroll option but this typically more useful when browsing than gaming. It’s a compromise that I can understand. The extra buttons vs a 3 button mouse don’t get in the way and are useful in a variety of games. I often use them as additional movement buttons.The tracking is very very sensitive if you’re used to an office mouse but this is also fully adjustable for your own comfort and ability. The mouse also physically slides very smoothly across a mouse pad. I haven’t tried it on other surfaces like glass or white tables which traditionally can sometimes give laser mice issues.My only gripe as others have pointed out is the main buttons can be a little bit wobbly if pushed from the side. This isn’t something you would do while gaming but again as others as said if you were traveling with it you would want it in a hard case if it has the chance of getting knocked around at all.So overall I would recommend this mouse for pretty much any task or game. It does everything a mouse should do and it does it well.
This mouse is almost perfect. This mouse was around 30$. The essential is 20$. Now I would say get this mouse over any of the essential mouse Razer offers. The 20k Focus sensor is superior then any sensor in any other brand mouse. The tracking and smoothness of the sensor is top tier. The feet on the mouse are the best. They do not wear out quickly and last a long time and keep their smoothness.The top of the mouse is one body design which I really love compared to Basilisk. The mouse wheel feels good to scroll and the clicking is perfect, not too sensitive but not too stiff.The one thing this mouse lacks is ergonomics. There is no curve for your ring finger and pinky to rest. The mouse does not feel comfortable to hold. It is very awkward feel in the hand. The mouse is very light weight at around 82g compared to the basilisk which is 92g. So when you have such a light weight mouse and you can not grip the mouse correctly it tends to get away from you. But once you are in game you do forget about that and your mussel memory kicks in. It does throw off my game a bit because I just don’t know how to hold this mouse.I would recommend seriously is the Basilisk wired. That in my opinion is the same mouse as the Death Adder but with a presented ergonomic design. The Basilisk is worth the money at 50$. But if you need to save that 20$ then I would get this mouse. Because in the end this is the best bang for your buck. I just don’t like the feel of this mouse but everything else is spot on.
First off, I was always skeptical about the hype around Razer products. However, I recently finished my updated PC build and wanted to pair it with a nice mouse and keyboard. For the mouse I decided to pick this one up due to the sale which was $41.99 compared to $69.99. I have to say, after purchasing my first Razer product, I understand the hype! This is a solid, fully customizable, mouse. Very comfortable in hand, especially while gaming. Everything from the performance of the mouse to the RGB lighting settings can be customized within the downloadable Razer interface, as well. Whether you are looking to purchase your first gaming mouse or just upgrading, I’d say the DeathAdder V2 is a solid contender!
