What customers say about "Key Specs"
Razer DeathAdder Expert Optical Esports Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • Great, smooth sensor movement. I have it set to poll 1 000 per second I can definitely tell the difference.
  • The side buttons are very easy to push when needed, but out of the way when they're not.
  • I particularly like the functionality of the side buttons as "forward and backward" buttons for internet browsers.
  • The middle mouse button is very easy to click.
  • I do wish it had a DPI button directly on the mouse so I can change it on the fly.
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.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Razer DeathAdder Expert Optical Esports Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • The weight is perfect. Not too heavy, not too light.
  • The ergonomic size. I have medium sized hands and it fits perfectly.
  • The ergonomics of the mouse feel snug, tight, and comfortable in my hand.
  • I've had smaller mice in the past but I have to say that the ergonomic shape of this felt amazing in every way.
  • Its light size makes it easier and smoother to move around.
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

What customers say about "Connection"
Razer DeathAdder Expert Optical Esports Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • The cable is long and fantastic durability. Doesn't feel that this is wired mouse.
  • Braided cables just seem to last longer, and my cat doesn't chew them.
  • Protective threading around the cable is nice addition.
  • The pros of this device are a nice long cable, which is an exception nowadays.
  • The USB connection or the cable have shorted somewhere and was causing all of my USB ports to shut down.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
Razer DeathAdder Expert Optical Esports Ergonomic Gaming Mouse
  • There are rubber grips on the left and right side, exactly where they should be for someone that uses a finger grip.
  • The software could use some tweaking, I'd have liked to see more options for rebinding mouse inputs.
  • The mouse itself is stylish and sleek, and very comfortable in the hand.
  • The rubber "grips" on the side are a nice feature, as the original DeathAdder had just slippery sides.
  • The program used to control the settings of the mouse, Synapse, is a great and intuitive tool.
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.
