Love the DeathAdder Black Edition!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well I took the plunge Saturday and ordered from Amazon with Prime. Just received it about 2 hours ago, and wow what a beauty!
Build quality is excellent, and a flawless performer. I love everything about this mouse, especially the grippy sides. What a dream!
If you are considering one, do it immediately! Nothing but praise here!

Why didn't you like the shape? I've palmed for ages and it fits like a glove. Actually one of the few mouses there the side buttons fit my fingers perfectly. Just curious!

Also when using On The Fly Sensitivity with the notification turned on...it goes from 10 to 1. Is 10 being the DPI you set for that profile?
Also how much DPI does each number cut from the value?

Please be aware of phantom jump when you scroll the middle button. This mouse is good but the quality is just over average a bit I suppose.

I believe it's just x/10 so setting it at ten would be the actual DPI, 5 would be half and so on.
