I have to admit that I prefer this type of packaging to the previous products from Razer, namely the Diamondback and Copperhead. Both of their packaging focused around a plastic window with the mouse on display. However the way in which the Deathadder is packaged gives it more suspense and anticipation when opening.
I do however have a few small issues with the packaging. Firstly, for a mouse that is so sleek in design, with just a Razer logo on it, I felt the box was a little “busy”. It feels as if there is too much information telling the buyer what the mouse can do. In a world where less is more, I feel that Razer have over complicated matters by slapping logo’s and information all over the box. The irony here is that the mouse itself has only the Razer logo on it, so is very minimalistic. Perhaps a simple Razer logo and the words “DeathAdder“ with a reptilian effect to the box would have sufficed?
To put this into context, the silver tin in which the original Razer Boomslang was shipped in was pure genius. A sleek design with only the logo on the top and it really did make the whole unpacking process an occasion. However I appreciate that costing now might be an issue where Razer is shipping so many products, so it’s understandable that their current approach doesn't follow the Boomslang. Contents
