Up Close - Deathadder

The Deathadder is one of the most popular shapes around, and the Elite continues to utilise this well proven design. Perfect if you already are used to the Deathadder but just want an improved sensor. It's not only in the sensor that the Elite has taken a step forward from the Chroma though. Behind the scroll wheel there are a couple of extra buttons - something that is always nice to have.

Rubberised side pieces ensure you have maximum grip even when things get hot and heavy, whilst the plastics used elsewhere are slightly textured and feel very nice. The underside has big teflon feet to keep resistance as low as possible.

Possibly the nicest feature, and one that separates mice at this price point from more affordable options are that the side buttons feel just as nice as the main ones. Often the LMB/RMB have Omron switches but the side ones are fairly squishy and indistinct. With the Deathadder Elite every button feels like a quality item. 

And we wrap things up with a long, well braided cable that has a Razer Green plug on the end of it. A nice touch.

i think point of more dpi is similar to anti-aliasing,maybe way overkill but why not when there is technology available.

on picture should be circle motion , from A to B is high dpi ,from B to C and from C to D is 5x lower dpi so all fine movement in between is lost.Quote

Using the deathadder chroma. I turned down the dpi to 1500. Any higher and it feels like i have a muscle cramp. The mouse flying over the screen like roadrunner. Seeing al these really high dpi mice nowadays I have a hard imagine what the dickens you need or use it for. But I am a old fart is propably the reason whyQuote

I had my DeathAdder (3.5 IIRC?) turned down also.

I think it's basically aimed at marketing - Highest number wins. I'm sure there are people out there that can and will use those settings but it's certainly not average old me.Quote

Nothing to do with being older, I've been using a max of 1000DPI since I started gaming on PC when I was 15, 15 years ago.

I've never seen the attraction of super high DPI, It makes aiming much harder.Quote
