What customers say about "Key Specs"
Razer Deathadder Elite RGB Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • I purchased this mouse to replace an older DeathAdder, and the DPI buttons are fantastic. It's easier to change the sensitivity on the fly in games like Overwatch.
  • Its a really great mouse. the wide range of DPI enables me to choose from different sensitivity settings
  • I especially love how I'm able to decrease or increase the dpi on the fly at the touch of a button and how I can customize any button on the mouse.
  • This is the best mouse for gaming and everyday use. The optical sensor is fast and accurate. I love that Razer adding the DPI sensitivity buttons just below the scroll wheel.
  • Still have calibration bug (i have calibration but after restart high lod. Alltime need recalibrate after restart) and ugly dpi buttons. Pros never change dpi in game.
  • The mouse is okay. Nice shape over all. My issue was that 800 dpi on this mouse did not feel the same. It was way faster than other mice. Be careful.
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Gaming Mouse
  • Razer, a good mouse you get used to it right away, an excellent response, the sensor is up to par.
  • Very good build quality combined with a good sensor.
  • The sensor is very cool. I took this mouse after the laser wireless and was just surprised at how accurate and fast the mouse can be.
  • I liked the click. All keys work fine, the side keys are easily located with your finger.
  • Many faced this problem - double click on LMB.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Razer Deathadder Elite RGB Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • Perfect size for anyone with medium size hands, quick response time and very accurate for FPS.
  • Perfect size to fit bigger hands, ergonomic shape, grippy scroll wheel and mouse side's for sweaty nerd hands.
  • So this mouse is surprisingly massive but I like it the bigger size makes it less portable but it makes it more comfortable even with my fairly small hands
  • Perfect weight balance and great size fits my hand and I believe will fit any hand comfortably.
  • It takes a little getting used to because of the size but I really like
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Gaming Mouse
  • A classic and well-proven ergonomic shape, in fact, suitable for any type of grip.
  • Very comfortable for my medium-sized man hands and the shape almost fills my palm completely when I use it.
  • The mouse is extremely comfortable to use. It's just the right size for my hand.
  • Personally, she never fell into my hand, my hand gets tired, my little finger is numb, probably because of the height of the "hump" of this mouse.
  • For me, DeathAdder is still too light, which affects the feeling of the cursor during the game.

What customers say about "Connection"
Razer Deathadder Elite RGB Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • Super comfortable mouse with a durable cloth covered cord.
  • Mouse is nice and smooth, comes with a good length usb cord
  • The cord is shockingly thin and flexible and doesn’t get hooked on anything.
  • The cord is tethered (like a shoelace) and fairly long and the mouse doesn't feel cheaply made or awkward or anything.
  • The cord ripped apart very easily, even with the extreme care I put into my electronics.
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Gaming Mouse
  • Good build, ergonomic look, long and light cord.
  • The cable and the backlight - they are just what you want to get for the money - you forget about the cable if it doesn’t exist.
  • The cable is braided but soft, very light and reliable.
  • The mouse has a braided cable that's nice and thin and a gold plated connector.
  • The edge of my desk is kind of rough and I happy that cable is braided.

What customers say about "Features"
Razer Deathadder Elite RGB Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • The newer generations have a nice rubber siding that helps with grip while maintaining the great comfort of before.
  • The rubber on the sides helps with grip, the buttons are a definitive click, and the adjustable DPI setting is ridiculous and goes up to 15000.
  • Such s great looking mouse with perfect DPI buttons and extra programmable buttons on the left side.
  • Two programmable thumb buttons perfect for you league of legends players D/F. Can be set to super sensitive and paired with the mouse pad it's really precise.
  • This is my preferred mouse for playing anything other than MMOs. Excellent performance in FPS games and the RGB lighting has colors accurate to what you see in the software.
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Gaming Mouse
  • Software - macros, click cards, profiles solve a full range of needs.
  • The colored lighting is actually fairly subtle and nice.
  • With the software you can easily set up one of the buttons to work along with the scroll wheel to change DPI.
  • A little soiled body. Legs are quickly erased. Overall a good mouse, but not durable.
  • The millions of colors that is is capable of displaying is completely pointless.
