1 out of 5 eggsNot the same mouse

Pros: My current DeathAdder is probably the best mouse I have ever owned.

It LOOKS like the same Razer DeathAdder 3.5G Infrared Sensor I bought a few years ago. But that's about it.

If you do happen to purchase a DeathAdder, I'd highly recommend playing very close attention to how the mouse tracks when making very small and price movements on the screen.

Cons: It doesn't perform the same as the current one that I've got. The labeling and model number on the bottom of the mouse are identical, though the layout of the label is slightly different.

Physical things I noticed that prompted me to return this mouse:

1. When I plugged in the mouse, immediately the sensitivity was significantly higher than the current DeathAdder I had plugged in.
2. Physically, the force required to exert left and right clicks were higher, and ultimately the buttons proved more difficult to click. It's possible I could get used to this, but it was noticeable.
3. The side buttons were nearly flush to the side of the mouse, making them more difficult to use. The buttons protrude on my current DeathAdder.
4. The tracking was the most significant issue. This mouse seemed to have tracking problems with small movements, where occasionally the movements would be dropped. While in-game in Diablo 3, I had difficulties with looting drops because the mouse seldomly dropped small movements. My current DeathAdder does not have this problem (it double-clicks because the microswitch is going bad... which is why I purchased the new one).

I don't know what they may have changed, but it's just not the same mouse. I did receive the item from China with Chinese packaging/labeling -- perhaps that might be related to the quality issues I encountered above?

Other Thoughts: It's possible someone who has never used the DeathAdder before may not recognize the issues that I encountered. However, expecting the exact same mouse model and receiving something different was unfortunate.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent - Same Problem as Most Others with Scroll Wheel

Pros: I mean, it works. I enjoy the UI that comes with it and the updates that can be provided. If I were more mouse savvy I'd certainly be using more of the features, but honestly, I just need a good gaming mouse that works.

Cons: As I've seen with most other people, the scroll wheel. For a long time it actually went back to working fine (after a long time of having it not work fine), then for some reason upon re-plugging it back into my computer, it started getting jittery again. For example, while scrolling down a page, would sporadically make a quick jump back up.

Other Thoughts: Outside of the scroll wheel, it's 5 Eggs for sure. But unfortunately this problem has plagued me for a long time and I can see it happens to many others, so clearly this product is flawed upon manufacturing it. Was debating 3, but since the problem is a hardware and not a software issue (IE, more easily fixable) I can only give it 2 stars. I will still buy Razer products, but it's unfortunate this happened with this particular mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product, precisely what I ordered.

Pros: It's a mouse with buttons and glows.

Cons: It has a cord. Sometimes I like mice without cords.

1 out of 5 eggsDouble click issue after 6 months

Pros: Accurate (when it was working) and sleek ergonomics.

Cons: A double clicking issue appeared only after 6 months. This is definitely not worth the price tag.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: It was simple to configure macros using Razer Synapse.

Lasted a year with only minor problems
Only failed after two years.

Cons: I purchased this production two years ago for 49.99$ without a sale or deal. Seeing it not for 20$ more is concerning given its poor quality. Not to say that all of Razer's products are of poor quality, but the DeathAdder specifically.

After the first year, the only problem I encountered was the scroll wheel having issues. Scrolling in any direction would either not work at all, or be extremely jittery. I found that this was a common problem when searching for solutions online. It turns out the mouse wheel isn't properly fixed to the device that registers wheel turns. A little hot glue or tape can fix this problem temporarily.

Now after two years, the right click, mouse wheel light, and side buttons no longer function. Given my warranty was up after the two year mark, I took a look inside. The bridge connecting the upper part of the mouse (All the buttons + scroll wheel) to the bottom part (Sensor) was not soldered in properly leading it to detach.

Would not purchase again.

Other Thoughts: Two years of moderate use. I only bought the mouse to replace an old micro soft branded ball mouse (Which still works fine). I did not end up using the mouse for any sort of gaming.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mouse

Pros: - Great, solid mouse (not a liquid)

- Very accurate feeling in games

- Smooth feeling scroll wheel (plus it lights up)

- very cool, toggleable razer logo light than can turn off when your display does (great for leaving your pc on overnight and not having bright lights from your mouse, but having them on otherwise)

- Excellent software, you can adjust the DPI in 100-dpi notches (to get exactly to the speed you need), the lights, x-y sensitivity, acceleration; you can have profiles (plus specific game/exe profiles), and have your profiles anywhere thanks to the cloud sync

Cons: - Don't expect this to last more than 6-12 months.
I bought this in Nov 2011 and it still works, but it has the double click problem (which I got around 12 months). You may be able to help it some with contact cleaner on the button itself.
It also has a weird scroll wheel issue where you can scroll in a direction and there's a chance, on each scroll-notch, for it to scroll one notch in the other direction; quite annoying when you're trying to scroll down and it keeps scrolling up every now and then.

- The plastic is a tiny bit slippery, but that's most likely only a problem because I somewhat claw-grip it. If you use 100% palm-grip, you're fine.

- A bit pricy now. It was 60 when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Great mouse all around. Don't think I'd pay $100 for it, though.

5 out of 5 eggsA Very Pleasant Surprise

Pros: Very sturdy design, visually appealing, feels normal and natural in my hand, very customizable when it comes to macros (using Razer Synapse), changing the mouse speed/DPI, and games recognized the thumb buttons (I was able to easily macro the VOIP and crouch buttons in every single FPS game I played, my interrupt spells in MMOs, etc...)

Cons: After HEAVY (and to my embarrassment, very forceful) use, the lower thumb-button became loose but works about 95% of the time (although I have only noticed the thumb button not working in one single game, so that could be an issue in the game.)
Also, after the 2 and a half year mark, the middle click isn't as good as it used to be, sometimes the middle click doesn't exactly click. (The click happens on the mouse, but not on the computer.)

Other Thoughts: I purchased this during the first week of January 2012. I'm still using it to this day and have had no problems that weren't my fault (referring to pressing the thumb button very hard, causing it to become loose... Oops...)

I will be picking up another as soon as the thumb button dies out.

If you're looking for a sturdy, well responsive mouse that will hold out in the long run (provide you don't slam it against the desk, angrily push the buttons in, etc...) this mouse will do it for you.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but didn't last

Pros: Weight of it is nice. It slides nicely on the mouse pad and the fabric covered cord is a plus. The cable length is more than adequate for all but the largest of desks.

Cons: The mouse wheel has always been a trouble spot on this mouse. I found it hard to spin, and hard to click from day one. Eventually, after roughly 8 months, it now clicks far, far too easily. Simply scrolling the wheel will usually (but not always) cause it to click. Very annoying.
I have never had a mouse break on me before this one. I've always just gotten tired of what I had and wanted to make a change. Maybe I got a dud, but I'll think twice before going for another RAZER mouse.

Other Thoughts: The blue light is pretty. It matches my saitek light up keyboard. But functionally it does very little.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fits well into your hand
Looks nice... for a gaming mouse
Amazing precision

Cons: Feels cheap
Kind of expensive?
Not build to last

Other Thoughts: I've owned this mouse and have used it intensively for nearly three years. The only reason I am giving it a 4 starts is that the two main buttons are wearing off and are either becoming slowly unresponsive or double-clicking on everything.

Now it's up to you if you think that 3 years is a good enough life for a 70$ precision mouse.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Fully Functional!

Pros: +Comfortable.
+Led lit to easily find mouse at night.
+2 programmable keys where the thumb rests.
+ Build quality.

Cons: -Grime collects in the spaces between the top plastic shell and the bottom one. In the cracks essentially.
-Glossy sides.

These things are usually a given with most mice, but, I had to mention the glossy sides.
