My DA BE is almost perfect. My only gripe is with its scroll wheel.

I got my DA: BE a couple weeks ago and I couldn't be happier, best mouse I've ever used. Set mine to 900dpi/500hz and I was set. Great material, perfect shape, better scroll wheel than what I've been using for the last decade (IME3.0/MX518) and all around flawless for me.

The drivers are awful, as they caused my system to BSOD after a few minutes, but I was able to set it and forget it. Uninstalled it and the mouse retained the settings so I'm good.

I have a question, guys!

Razer Deathadder has many versions such as original 1800DPI, 3500DPI, Black Edition, Dragon Age 2 and Transformer.

In the shop near my house, it has only two versions which are Dragon Age 2 and Black Edition. I search on Razer site, there are no firmware and driver for Dragon Age 2 and Transformer versions so I guess these two version use the same firmware and driver as 3500DPI version.

The lift off distance of Black Edition is higher than 1800DPI version's and 3500DPI version's, right?

One way to lower the LOD of Black Edition is using the Scotch Magic Tape like this clip on Youtube, right?


Thank you for reading this post and helping me!

The LOD on the black edition is no different than the LOD on the 3500DPI version. They both use the same sensor, and yes by using scotch tape it will lower the LOD.

I'm still getting used to CS and SC...SC i can feel it is a little more precise but I'm overshooting sometimes...i think? Don't know how to describe.
Choose one DPI, and change your in game sensitivity as needed. No need to change your DPI due to the game.

Actually, I change my senstivity all the time in games, especially like in BC2 when I need higher sensivity in vehicles, I just tap the profile switcher on my G9 and profit. Not to mention on the fly sensitivity for using different weapons, like high DPI for things like shotguns and low for things like sniper rifles.

I wouldn't game with a mouse I couldn't change sensitivity on the fly...might as well not even be using a gaming mouse.

Trust me, it makes all the difference. Why tab through game menu's constantly feeling restricted when there's plenty of mice out there that allow you to handle it in a very easy fashion that doesn't require you to stop playing.

Doing this wont allow you to build muscle memory. That's why its best to change your vehicle sensitivity to the same as they are when you're a infantry. Its the only way you'll improve your accuracy and being consistent at any FPS game. I can flick shot almost anywhere on my screen without looking because of this.

Actually it does. I use the same exact profiles for all the games, I just have a wider scope of "muscle memory" with the mouse and my settings. Every setting on my mouse feels natural to me and would to anyone who utilized its function properly. It's not that complicated.

I'm sure they feel natural to you. As they did for me too when I played with such settings before. Playing with a consistent sensitivity will improve your game play though.

Without repeating something over and over with the same setting and environment you wont improve your game, I promise you that. There's a reason why professional gamers use one sensitivity.

I played CoD "professionally" at its prime, and was planning on doing the same in CS until school got in the way.
