I know there are different models and versions of the DeathAdder, but is this the one I should buy?

Assuming you're right handed, yep that's the "best" one. By far the best construction quality and it has less parts to break. It does have some possible drawbacks though.
  1. It is rubberized instead of glossy which most people prefer but some might find less desirable.
  2. It has no lights, and has a more metallic tone, which is entirely subjective of course. If for some reason you want lights AND a black edition shell, you can swap the internal components of a normal edition into the shell of a black edition. All the parts line up perfectly, but that will of course void your warranty and cost more.
  3. It's stock feet are even worse than the others (actually the material of the feet themselves is better, but they are thinner, and that is the problem. Even the original feet are far too thin and cause the belly of the mouse to drag, which is why I suggest doubling up on feet. Once doubled, this is no more of an issue than it is with any other DA.
  4. The lift-off distance is higher, but can easily be corrected with a piece of scotch tape. This is a non-issue if you don't frequently lift your mouse.

As for mouse feet, Just about any company will do. I'm currently using Corepad skates (they are the only ones available on amazon that are custom fit to the DA), but in the past I have used Hyperglides and even razer's own replacement feet. The corepads are slightly less rounded off which will give them better coverage but also causes them to drag a bit more until they are worn out. The razer ones are black instead of white. That's the only real difference between them.

Great reply! I already ordered them, they should be coming in today! I really don't tend to lift off my mouse and I prefer a no lights minimalistic look. Rubberized all the way wink.gif. Thanks again for ensuring my confidence in buying the mouse and I'll get back with what my thoughts are when I use them!

Got it today and wow. I am extremely impressed. I have nothing but good to say about this mouse. It fits me perfect and my god is it accurate. The amount of acceleration feels perfect and I am able to do finite things that I couldn't do with my kinzu.

Correct me if I'm wrong (which I probably am) but I always thought that one of the reasons why optical sensors are so popular for fps gaming is because they have no acceleration (optical/ infrared, I know DA has infrared). Unless, you mean prediction, although again i didn't think the deathadder had any, or much.

He could have turned Acceleration on via the DA driver and be talking about that biggrin.gif

Love my DeathAdder, Razer you have a lifetime customer!
post #128 of 2468
hey guys, created a separate topic for this but i feel like i could add to this thread by providing a real-world DeathAdder RAW input low sensitivity performance test, so here we are (this is the 3.5G by the way). i also comment on the inconsistency at 1000 Hz.

i bought a Deathadder black edition last week and im having one problem

the bottom of the mouse is dragging on the mousepad right out of the box, and i think its because of the stock feet that are too thin
im thinking about buy some hyperglide feets, does someone know if this will solve the problem? (im using an everglide titan monstermat as pad)

another question, are the lastest drivers and firmwares for the black edition the 1.02 and 1.01?

thanks very much
