post #181 of 2468
hello TS,
has the R Deathadder black same left and right buttons sensitivity respons click as the 3.5G version.
I felt both from friends on different computer and i thought the black edition buttons are more responsive am i right?

The Deathadder 3G, 3.5G, and 3.5G Black Edition all use the same switches for the left/right mouse button.

There's a few things that can make the sensitivity appear different:

First of all, the amount of wear on the mouse will affect the tactility of the click. I've compared new and old deathadders and the differences in response almost makes it feel like a different mouse.

Secondly, the materials used in the Black Edition top makes the click feel different. I've experienced this first hand when I took my Deathadder 3G V3 internals and placed them in a Black Edition shell. The clickyness did feel different because of the materials used in the shell.

Hope this helps buddy.

Okay thanks for the answer.
Is the switch the only difference that make mouse clicks different between mouses or are in side dthe mouse more things like springs or something that make the stifness and pressure sensitivity different .
I'm little bit geek like to know things.

Btw nice collections deathdadders you have when maybe there coming a 4.5G version ,then you make your collection again complete?

The two things that affect click feel are the switch and the materials of the mouse button. Different switches will have a different innate feel and the mouse button will will modify this innate tactility.

Think, the Steelseries Xai, Deathadder, G400, and MX518 all use the same switch yet they all feel different.

I believe the black edition uses different, cheaper, and mushier sidebutton switches than the Deathadder 3G.

Yep. I believe a lot of razer mice have this problem. My abyssus was gently used for 2 months but the left click started being noticeably stiffer than the right click. It is somewhat annoying. Razer mice tend to use the body-is-the-button design as well and where you apply pressure on the mouse will also affect the kind of tactile feedback you get.

I believe this is because of the body-is-the-button effect. The tactile response varies on the shape of your mouse and the material used for the top plate.

I believe they all use omron switches. The CM storm uses it too and feels more tacticle than the above because it has separated, distinct buttons for left and right click instead of using the Chassis. Switches are important but trying out the mouse itself is even more important as they tend to be more (or less) than the sum of their parts.

I doubt that. The Xai had the hardest to press buttons I've ever used on a mouse (but I haven't used a Zowie AM). When I had a deathadder 3g or a G5, I never noticed anywhere near as much pressure being required.

Actually you're right, the steelseries xai uses D2F-J01F Omron switches while all the others use the Omron D2FC-F-7N. However they are very similar and noticed this when I took them apart. IMO the shape and materials of the xai contribute more to the difference than the switch itself.

Not all Xai are created equal.

I think a majority of them are labeled with D2FC.

It's more to do with the shell design like stated.

Thanks for the confirmation Skylit. I remembered the Xai having D2FC-F-7N switches when I opened mine. However I recently looked up what switches the Xai had and I found some pictures with D2F-J01F switches.

Looks like Steelseries varies it up with the switch lot.
