DeathAdder v2 or R.A.T. 5?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I own a Razer Diamondback 3G mouse and medium size Razer Goliathus Speed Edition pad.

My Razer mouse about to meet its doom. The left click button barely works. So it's time for me to get a new mouse.

I narrowed the options down to two. Razer DeathAdder v2 or Cyborg R.A.T. 5.

I'll mainly be playing BF3 with it. Other than BF3 i'm planning to play RPG and RTS titles like Elder Scrolls Skyrim and Shogun 2 Total War.

Which mouse has better features and which one fits me better ?

EDIT: I forgot to mention something very important. Does Cyborg mouses have any compatability issues on the Razer Goliathus pads? I'm asking this because my friend's Microsoft Habu mouse refused to work on some certain pads.

TY

Deathadder = arguably the best mouse you can buy (perfect sensor, relatively light weight for size although there are definitely smaller options that are comparably good if you don't need the extra buttons).

Rat5 = arguably one of the worst (way too heavy & a bad sensor).

You be the judge.

I'd say Deathadder- People knock razer stuff sometimes, but in my experiance theyve been really good.

I believe the RAT5 has the philips twin eye sensor, which is crap.

Please don't make the same mistake as me and buy some R.A.T Garbage. I gave them 2 tries. I bought both the R.A.T. 7 and 9, both were TERRIBLE mice. I hated them so much. Maybe at $30 they would be worth it, but not at MSRP.

The deathadder is an extremely good mouse. I used it for a year before selling it on OCN since my grip changed from palm to claw. I would highly recommend it.

Cyborg knew what would sell, a few posts down you can see a 1300+ post thread full of R.A.T. lemmings.
