Razer DEATHADDER ELITE
« on: June 13, 2022, 11:56:25 PM »
I made a thread previously about mouse misclicks. The problem became significantly worse, but that mouse was stupid expensive and I didn't want to buy a new one.

I lucked out at the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) thrift shop, they had a DEATHADDER ELITE for three dollars. New ones go for about $46.

So I load it up and the RGB stuff is REALLY pronounced.

I did a system restore a few months ago, so I didn't have the razer software, and had to redownload.
The funny thing is they made me register the mouse, and that demands that you upload a jpg of your receipt. So I did, I uploaded the picture of the DAV receipt.

AND IT WENT THROUGH!

Once I had the synapse software installed (I'm not a big fan, it's pointlessly cloud based) I was able to dim the RGB, and lock it to one color. (I chose blue)

The mouse is really snappy, and the mousewheel has teeth, like a high grip bike tire.

I'd say if you can pick one up used, go for it. As to Razer products in general? Probably wouldn't recommend them. They've got a rep for lasting about as long as the warranty.

I've been a big Razer fan for years, back to the original Razer Boomslang ball mouse. I have no delusions about the Synapse software. It's cowpoo. That said, I feel v3 is better than v2. But that's really like saying poop pile 1 smells better than poop pile 2.

But I've been using a Naga mouse for years (12 thumb buttons on the side for 1-0, -, and =) so it's hard to transition back. I used my first Naga for years, even 2-3 years after the wireless died. Currently using a new Naga Pro (wired) and, while having the occasional unintended double-click, I'm extremely happy.

I've read lots about Logitech being better (at least in regards to a similar gaming mouse model) but I'm content for now. YMMV

No good to me, I only have one thumb on my mouse hand.

Maybe we all need implants, like Johnny Mnemonic.   8)

That's opposable.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I don't know whether to applaud you or kick you.

Yup, I was using the 2011 mmo naga, but that double click thing was really annoying.

I'd enjoy either one.
