We can't imagine that there is, but on the off-chance that someone has never seen the Deathadder we really ought to take a look at it. Packaging is improving greatly with Razer. The searing green that is their trademark is being lessened to only the important spots and the features of the Deathadder itself are coming to the fore.
Inside there is the regular Razer bundle of quick-start guides, congratulatory telegrams from the owner and stickers to ensure you can rep your choice with pride. We particularly like the fact that all the Chroma range have prismatic stickers to help get the Chroma part across. It's the little things. The cable is of a softer braid to that we found on the Kraken headset, and all the better for it.
The design of the Deathadder is an absolute stone cold classic. Designed for right handed people but without such an extreme bend that southpaws could manage it if they absolutely had to, its soft curves fit well in almost any size hand. The coating is a mix of soft rubber on the sides and hard plastic on the top. It's not gloss, but it's not soft either.
Both sides of the Deathadder sport textured rubber patches to maintain your grip through even the sweatiest sessions. Two buttons on the left hand side cope with the forward/back functions by default but can be assigned to anything of your choosing with the Synapse 2.0 software. Either side of the scroll wheel has the lighting which - along with the logo - can also be set to anything you like, adn the Synapse software makes it easy to do so let's move on to that.
