I’ve bought the Razer Deathadder a couple of months ago. Back then, I mentioned I’d try to write a review later on… and here it is. This will be slightly different from those seen on most review sites, as they tend to only use the mouse for a few days and focus it primarily on gaming. However, unless you’re a pro-gamer, you’re bound to use this mouse for a lot of other stuff, so I also try to cover that. I’ve been using the Deathadder as my “everyday mouse” for the past two months, which means that it’s being used for around 6 to 12 hours a day while doing all sorts of tasks: gaming, web browsing, web design, graphic design, office applications, programming, etc. It’s also important to mention that I’m using it coupled with a Steelseries Qck Mass mousepad (cloth pad), with the Razer drivers installed.
The Razer Deathadder is a somewhat expensive mouse, with the latest version (Razer Deathadder 3.5G) usually available somewhere between €45 and €60. Therefore, I think it deserved a better bundle. The box it comes in looks quite cool, but you won’t find much more than the mouse in there. I think we can all live without the CD containing the drivers, since most people would download them from Razer’s website anyway, but at least an extra pair of mouse skates would be a nice addition.
