RAZER DeathAdder Precision Optical Gaming Mouse - 3.5G Infrared Sensor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Can't go wrong with a deathadder 12/31/2013

This review is from: RAZER DeathAdder Precision Optical Gaming Mouse - 3.5G Infrared Sensor

Pros: * the style of the mouse, the material its made out of, and the general feel of it is just a good all around mouse for anyone and any grip style.
* the side buttons are very well-placed.

Cons: * no DPI switch
* middle-mouse click isn't anything too special

Other Thoughts: I've owned a logitch mx310, corsair vengeance, cm storm spawn, and this mouse. I recently purchased a perixx mx3000 (due to future review).

I'm a claw/fingertip gripper with larger-than-average hands.

The primary reason I replaced my deathadder was the clicking. Personally, I found both the left and right-clicks to be too flimsy. I prefer solid, short clicks, and the deathadder did not deliver that for me.

Corsair Vengeance M60  Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Performance, FPS Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: * best side grips on a mouse ever, and I'm not using hyperbole--sweat-resistant, comfortable, not too big, not too small.
* the texture of the click buttons feeding into the rear of the mouse is also fantastically comfortable.

Cons: * side buttons are a little inconveniently high to press--the smaller your hands, the more inconvenient this might be.
* the weights are cheesy--sure it's "cool" to have weights, but they really don't change the weight of the mouse at all, since it's already a heavier mouse.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a logitech mx310, razer deathadder, cm storm spawn, and this mouse, as well as a recently purchased perixx mx3000 (due to review in the future).

I'm a claw/fingertip gripper with larger-than-average hands.

The corsair vengeance is one of a kind. It's pricey for a mouse, but the material its made out of is gawdlike, and I wish every mouse was made out of the stuff.

However, I ultimately ditched the vengeance due to the side buttons being too high (inconveniently placed), and the scroll wheel being too loose.

As an aside, the sniper button is relatively useless, so don't buy the mouse if you're thinking "oh, the sniper button feature is awesome." You have to hold it down and it completely disorients your hand from aiming accurately.

Lastly, this mouse is worth owning if for no other reason than the material its made out of... seriously.

CM Storm Spawn - 3500 DPI Optical Gaming Mouse with Durable Omron Microswitches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: * Small--smaller than your average wallet
* DPI easily adjustable, though not customizable
* side buttons fairly easy to press, though the further one is a bit more inconvenient if you have smaller hands.

Cons: * the DPI "up" button is a bit 'mountainous' over the scroll wheel.
* the mouse cord exits the front of the mouse nearly flush with whatever surface its on. I found myself bending the cord a bit so I didn't fight the surface as well as the mouse when moving it.
* the sidegrips are made out of a cheapish material, mostly comfortable, but not sweat resistant.

The reason I replaced this mouse in Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a logitech mx310, razer deathadder, corsair vengeance, and this mouse. I recently replaced this one with a perixx mx3000 (due to review in the future).

I'm a claw/fingertip gripper, and I have larger-than-average hands.

The primary reason I replaced the CM storm spawn is due to the position of the optical sensor. Most mice possess the sensor near the center, possibly off to the side or closer to the front. The spawn sensor is closer to the rear.

I tend to keep my wrist grounded when moving the mouse, creating a slight arc with the front of the mouse when moving side-to-side. As a result, I sometimes found myself fighting with the sensor because the rear of the mouse wasn't moving as much as the front resulting in barely any movement of the sensor and thus the cursor. Essentially, this mouse forced me to have my wrist lighter on the mousepad in order to move with the mouse so the sensor would also move. I realize this may not be an issue for many claw/fingertip grippers who don't ground their wrist, but if you have larger hands like me and do ground your wrist, this review is for you.

As a secondary... I found the clicks a little too... easy I suppose, sometimes double-clicking accidentally. This wasn't a deal-breaker as it was more user error... my fingers resting too heavily... an easy thing to avoid, but still a tad annoying.
