post #2321 of 2478
I just bought my first DeathAdder (Chroma) a few days ago off Amazon and was pleasantly surprised by the build quality. The plastic itself is maybe slightly cheap feeling (I would have preferred rubberized all around), but overall it seems very well put together. No rattles at all when I shake it, not even the scrollwheel, and I think this is the first mouse that I can say that about.

So either the Chroma has just always been better put together than the 2013, or they improved their processes in the intervening years.

My Chroma never had any issues. Although, honestly, I've owned MANY Deathadders, and only the very first 3G V1 ever has any manufacturing errors. I'm pretty sure people just like making up nonsense to confirm their bias regarding Razer build quality.

Well, I haven't had the best luck with them in the past myself. Had a Razer keyboard that went bad in just over a year, and a Razer Blade laptop that broke within a month of receiving it. No problem getting it repaired of course, but still annoying.

Incorrect. The 2013 edition I have had (bought shortly after release) had numerous issues - scroll rattle, oversensitive RMB, shell squeak when I pushed on it - generally felt like a thin cheap PoS. Fixed the RMB with microswitch replacement (funny that they decided to install a switch with 15...20g less OF), homemade a small spring to stabilize the wheel.

I even went to shop to touch the Chroma and, damn, it does have the same oversensitive right click (I only slightly put finger on it and it clicks). Unsure if the shell is as crappy as it was in 2013, but internally it looks the same on the photos. Abyssus 2014 build quality isn't much better. Older Deathadders, on the other hand, feel a bit sturdier.

Pretty sure people who praise Razer either won a QC lottery or barely stress quality of the product.

I'm also pleasantly surprised by the weight - I was expecting in the 105g range.

Sorry if this has been answered before

Couldn't you buy a shell on say eBay or something? Least I recall you could.

Yea that's the next thing to look for. I just had a chance to get an used DA 3.5G for real cheap and thought it could be compatible. There's a chinese seller in ebay selling the chroma shell for $20, I hope it's not a fake because there aren't many options at this point.

Thanks for the suggestion
