Replacing my dead Razer Deathadder 3G (1800 DPI)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
All good things come to an end I guess? At least that´s what I can say about my loyal Razer Deathadder mouse that I´ve had for quite some time now.

Suddenly none of my machines are able to recognise it anymore, so I guess the cable is faulty or perhaps the whole things has gone dead altogether. Either way I´ll be needing to get myself a replacement for it.

I have tried quite a few newer gaming mouses released after the original 3G 1800DPI Razer Deathadder, and there has been quite a few releases from many companies since then but they´ve all fell sort to the Deathadder in my book.

I play about all gaming genres, from FPS, RTS to MMO´s and puzzles etc.. Sometimes I play on a 27" Dell UltraSharp U2711 with 2560x1440 and at other times I play on a smaller 23.5" 120Hz 1920x1080 monitor. My experience with alternatives like Logitech G9 (not G9x), G500 and Razer Lachesis is that they all seem to feature sensors not suited for anything below 3000DPI, they all seemed to skip and be allover the place compared to my Deathadder 3G which has proven to be (sensor wise) rock solid when using 800-1800DPI.

I´ve got a Q-Pad XT-R hard plastic mouse pad and the Deathadder has worked perfectly on this surface. My only grip with the Deathadder is that the build quality seems somewhat fuzzy, the plastic feels rather cheap, I don't really like the scroll wheel that much (Logitech´s MicroGear scroll wheel is much, much better) and the cable tends to behave somewhat sticky when gliding against my computing table.


The big question is which mouse to get this time around. I haven´t really been following up the sensor development since I got my Deathadder several years ago and things seem to have develop in every direction with different generation of laser sensors, razor got their dual sensor thingie and we have infrared and whatnot.

This brings me back to creating this topic, which mouse do you think would suit my usage the best? I would gladly get something different than another Deathadder, and a new Deathadder would´t really be the same anyway as you get a different "improved" sensor these days compared to my 3G 1800DPI edition? After all the one thing I liked about the Deathadder was the sensor, but all the other things about it wash´t really the best in the world in my book, but then again the sensor is perhaps the most important thing as I want the best possible and stable mouse for my mid-sense gaming on the Q-Pad X-TR.

If you really like the 1800 dpi model, Amazon still has some.
