Razer introduced this mouse back in 2020- this is basically exactly the same version of the wired mouse just with the tail ( wire) cut off.
This mouse does not look like a gaming mouse but it does what any gaming mouse should do- perform.
With Razers Focus + optical sensor and three different ways to connect, this mouse is a great item to add to your gaming inventory.
If you want to see who came in 1st and 2nd place check out the top 5 list here.
The DeathAdder design has not changed massively over all of the new versions- this is just the same. The slopes and shape of this mouse make it a very comfortable mouse to use for people of all hand sizes.
The shell is the usual matte black plastic and the side has some moulded rubber grips which cover the full length of the side panels. These grips are great for when you are frantically gaming and getting a sweat on.
There are 8 buttons on the Razer Death Adder, the usual left and right clicker on top along with the scrolling wheel, below the scrolling wheel there are two buttons to change up the DPI.
On the left side there are also two programmable macro buttons and underneath you will find a button to switch between the presets profiles on Synapse 3 which is razers gaming software.
You will also find the slot for the USB dongle which makes it easy to store away and take it on the move if required. Weighing in at 88g this mouse is a good weight for a gaming mouse- there is no way to increase the weight of this mouse so take it into consideration if you like a heavier gaming mouse.
If you look under the mouse you will also see two gold pegs- these are for connecting it to the Razer charging dock (more about that later)
There are three different ways to connect this mouse, it is easy to switch between them by clicking the switch underneath. You can connect via Bluetooth, 2.4GHz and USB A.
Using the hyper-speed connection there are no issues with the tracking with it moving nearly instantaneously with your control.
The DPI ranges from 100 to 20,000 with you being able to adjust this with the two buttons below the mouse wheel.
The left and right mouse buttons both have optical switches which are rated at 70 million clicks, thanks to the optical switches the response is instant.
The adjustable DPI buttons make it is easy to change the setting on the fly and lower to get those precision shots off or to increase it to help with your movement.
Razer says that you will get 120 hours of battery life out of this mouse with 1 charge and without the RGB lighting on. This drops to 70 hours when using the hyperspeed connection.
This is still plenty of time for you to use it on a weekend of gaming fun on one charge. Still, if you forget to charge it you can always plug in the provided cable to charge it while in use.
The mouse is compatible with Razer Synapse software which allows you to adjust and customize anything that you can think of. You can reassign all 8 buttons on the mouse in the software to do a different task, you can even customize the button underneath- Not like that is needed as you will not be using it during gaming.
The DPI sensitivity stages can also be customized so you can go up or down in increments that you like. Want to change the RGB lighting? This can also be done in the software where you can adjust the brightness and effects.
This is my opinion is pointless as the logo is the only RGB and that sits exactly where your palm will be when gaming so you will not see it.
Five profiles can be saved to the mouse memory so you can have a different profile for a different genre of game.
The charging dock is a small pedestal with RGB lighting along the bottom. Charging is a breeze as there are contacts on the bottom of the mouse that just fit seamlessly to the dock.
This mouse is probably not for the elite gamers who need to be able to have buttons everywhere and able to adjust the weight of the mouse.
For the avid home gamer who wants a great performing mouse with comfort, this will work wonders.
It is very expensive though and comes at nearly double the price of the wired version- It makes me does it really cost double to make a wireless version?
If you really are a fan of razer you could look at other options such as the Razer Viper Ultimate.
