Razer Deathadder Elite and Gigantus Mousepad Review
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.
