g500 vs deathadder 3.5 - Page 2

post #11 of 37
For me the shape and the size of the Death adder was awkward for my hands to the point i in up selling it after i got another mouse years ago. because it was like trying to use a funny shape brick.

I would say buy both and use them, then keep the one you like. Because you could buy the deathadder and not like it or the G500 and not like it. so get both try them out and return the other.

You can also go to a store and pray they have them out on display and try it out there.

Not close. DA by far. Sensor of G500 just can't compare to DA.

The sensor in the deathadder will perform just fine on either cloth or hard pads and without the unwanted acceleration. If you prefer acceleration then your game or drivers can take care of that.

Because of that fact, I consider the DA 3.5g the better mouse. (I have owned both)

Well it seems like most of you guys like the DA haha.

If I get the DA is a gaming mouse pad something I should look into? or will it work fine on a normal one?

After being an ex-owner of a G500 I would also go for the DA.

A proper mouse pad is a good investment..I would recommend it.

Do like my goliathus pad though... Not a fan of their keyboards/mice
I use a G500. It's freaking amazing. Especially since it's got rubber grips, rubber scrolling bar, and Foward/Backward buttons which are very good when you are on team-speak and playing a game for a communication button

My Vote:

G500.

I have an older Deathadder (1800 dpi) & I seriously think it's a piece of crap. It looks nice, that is if you can discount all the dead skin cells it attracts, & the rubbery material that's peeling off. However, it tracks & fits my small hands well enough. Then again, that's the OLD Deathadder that's slowly dying of cancer.

So, the newer Razer Deathadder 3.5 has a better sensor than the Logitech G500, but its build quality is well.. Razer.

I have a new g500 and a new Abyssus sitting right here. I've decided to keep them both.

Abyssus has a better sensor and you can feel it(same as DA), it's my perfect fps claw mouse.

The g500 however is the perfect Windows mouse and for all games other than fps.

I change per task.

My advice is to get both like people have suggested.
