The Deathadder Megathread - Page 7

post #61 of 2468
okay, so i just got my DeathAdder: Black Edition
the mosue feels great and lies great in the ehand, ther sis a problem though: when i put it on my Goliathus Control, the mouse hangs after aan inch and makes this itching sound, like something got hooked to it underneath?

my 2nd question is, i want to edit the side buttons, but planned to not use the driver. same with the dpi switching, there is this profile button underneath the mouse that will switch between the 4 or 5 dpi settings this mouse has without a driver? what's with the polling rate? what is the standard one when you plug it in and what is the optimum one? i guess either 500hz or 1000hz.
should i update the firmware?

English Release Log: - Fixed polling rate changes back to default when user unplug and re-plug the mouse to the system. Note: Compatible with Razer DeathAdder BlackEdition only.
can i set all this settings, then save it on aprofile and when i plug in the mouse to my computer sometime after a new installation, do i have the same settings without having to use the driver?

questions over questions

I just received my Deathadder BE last night. It is definitely an upgrade from my G5 i have been using for 3 years. It's slightly larger though, so I will have to take some time to get used to it.

A few quick notes - the mouse feet are EXTREMELY thin - almost nonexistent. I read about this before buying, and was surprised at how thin they really are. However, the mouse doesn't seem to drag on my Qck heavy; an issue some people were experiencing. Tracking is great on the Qck heavy - I'm not sure how it could be better on a hard pad, I think it's great as it is.

If you want to use the profile button, or use custom button assignments, you have to have the driver installed. I tried assigning a button to change profiles, and then uninstalling driver, but the button didn't work after uninstalling. Also, the profile button you have underneath only works when the driver is installed as well.

The default polling rate is 500hz. I think the mouse kept my profile settings after uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. I'm not sure though, since I messed around with the settings both times, and I really only spent like 5 minutes playing with them.

The black rubber on the sides feels much better the coating on the G5 - much softer and offers more grip. The plastic on top feels really nice as well.

The only gripe I have with the deathadder is the shape. It's slightly more difficult to lift than the g5, since the non-thumb side is convex and doesn't offer anywhere for your pinky and ring finger to get support. This may be due to my small hands - only about 7" from bottom to top of middle finger.

I'm also a palm/fingertip grip, and this mouse fits that shape perfectly.

ok thanks for the clarification. now only tihngs i ned to know is, if i should go to 1000Hz or leave it at 500Hz, and instal the driver first or the firmware?
post #64 of 2468
definitely driver first! I did not have to flash the firrmware on mine, since it was already the latest version (1.01 for BE). Install the driver and check the version on the firmware, to make sure you really need to upgrade it.

I switched my polling rate to 1000hz, but I didn't really notice a difference between 500 and 1000. My computer is definitely fast enough to handle 1000hz, so I might as well go for the best performance. If you notice your computer slowing down at 1000hz polling, just switch it back to 500.

I just bought DeathAdder Black Edition, too. May I ask why you, r3d33m3r or anyone here suggests that should not install driver?

I access Razer site and see that the newest firmware for Black Edition is 1.01. It is the same as my Black Edition even I have not update firmware yet. It is so weird but I think the Razer manufactory has already installed newest firmware when it releases the mouse.

I tested the mouse by playing 30 minutes CSS and it was really awesome, I killed many but died many too (because I wanted to test the mouse so I usually go at first line ^^). So far so good.

Does anyone here has pdf or video clips of how to replace interior of DeathAdder to Imperator? I watched a clip on Youtube and there was a person who could do that. I still prefer the shape of Imperator to DeathAdder. There are many people out there want the best sensor as DeathAdder but they do not like the shape of DeathAdder like me.

I usually prefer to not install drivers either, unless you absolutely need them. It just adds another layer for something to mess up. However, I need to use the razer driver since I switch between 900 and 1800 dpi between different games.

If you don't need to switch between DPI settings, you can install the drivers - set the DPI and polling rate you want, and then uninstall it.

In first post there is something like
"Deathadder 3.5
450, 900, 1800, 3500"

So I have some questions: if in DA:BE there is a possibility to set DPI on 450, I would need a drivers to do this? But I heard that it's better to not install drivers for deathadder becouse it can cause some problems, is that true? (in my previous mice I have never installed any drivers... (there was just no need for this)).

I assume the 3G V2 is the 1st generation? If so, I have one, and know they are supposed to be awesome. After reading this thread, I'm wondering if I should switch my G500 out for the DeathAdder 1st gen. Would that be a wise option?

You would need the drivers to set it to 450dpi, and the drivers do suck in my experiences (they gave me BSOD), but you can change the settings how you like them in the driver and then uninstall it. The mouse will keep the setting so you only need to do it once.

Ok, Thanks for answer. I'm going to buy DA:BE.

And my question on future is how we can change polling rate from 500hz to 1000hz on DA:BE? On abyssus it was like "on the fly" by pulling button, how is that on DA?
