Just wanted to let you guys know:

I have bought a new 3.5G Deathadder via Amazon Marketplace and received a fake version!
I've heard of fake Abyssus before, there are now fake Deathadders as well. It was quite easy to distinguish from the original as the lower shell had sharp edges from the injection molding and the plastic was a lot cheaper than the one Razer usually uses. You could see that the surface had kind of little bubbles.

Worst thing was the sensor performance though: 0.5m/s max speed in Enotus.

Also the Razer software couldn't detect any mouse, so there's another hint to it being fake.

Was it from Amazon directly or via 3rd party on amazon?

Third party, sorry not to make that clear. That's what I meant with Amazon Marketplace. Amazon in Germany seems to only seel the DA via third party unfortunately. Now I had to order it somewhere else to get an original one.

Do you have a link to the seller? What was the items description?
post #846 of 2468
This is the shop where I bought it: MULTI SM

Apperently they don't have anything in stock right now... weird. I can't find the old link to it either. The Item description was the same as usual, the standard Amazon description.

My old DeathAdder BE (pre-ordered launch unit) did not malfunction like this.
The wheel design seems to have been updated (an improvement) and the feet are softer than the old ones.

Just received a DA BE as a birthday present party.gif :



So NotAgain you were right, in terms of performance its a degeneration (compared to my old 3G DA). Now i would like to test it with the 1.00 firmware, before i try some LED stuff since it came with 1.01 installed. Has somebody a link to it?

I don't know that you can downgrade to 1.00, but you wouldn't want to anyway. With the original DeathAdder Black I had, which shipped on 1.00, 1.01 fixed some tracking issues.

I want to point out though, that I haven't had any issues with the tracking above 450 DPI, and I typically run at 1800 DPI in games anyway (with sensitivity at 1 in the game) which seems to track best. That was also on a smooth white mouse pad, something darker or more textured tends to work better with optical mice.

I do wonder if the 4G DeathAdder will perform better - I wouldn't be so sure, because it seems that most mice just keep getting worse these days. Even the newer 3090 mice don't seem to track as well as the 3888 in the DeathAdder. They all seem to fail at high speeds. My Savu did seem to do well at medium speeds and handled 1000Hz better than the DeathAdder does, but I don't like going above 500Hz anyway.

3500 DPI seems better on this than 4000 DPI on the Savu, but that's much higher than anyone should need.

@ thunderbringer. Performance is nearly identical to the 3G results you posted. Other than having slightly different firmware, LED tolerances or rating range can effect max IPS when moving from sample to sample. Meaning you'll have mice with lower and higher Max IPS, granted Enotus can also be off ^^

@NotAgain.

It's more along the lines of surrounding hardware, firmware, and electrical design over the actual sensor. Other than branding ID, there shouldn't be anything really different in terms of the actual sensor processing. I suppose there is one notable change moving onto 3090 though, not that it effects tracking wink.gif
