The DeathAdder shape is still the only one which doesn't cause me wrist pain, finger pain, or hand cramps after using it all day for weeks at a time. Any other mouse I've bought has started to cause me problems after a month or two, if not sooner. (some mice I can't even use all day without problems)
Everyone else seems to have much stiffer switches as well, which is a real problem for me.

Also: DA with DPI switch? Finally!
It's too bad you can't get that type of grip without a surface finish that results in fingerprints everywhere though. Well, at least if they insist on a black mouse. White or other lighter colors look much better with glossy finishes.
I have dry hands, and personally I like the fact that it doesn't
stick to my hand when using it though, but I don't really lift my mouse much at all. (and never found it to be a problem when I do)
I do like the look of the new shell though, it seems like it won't stick to your hands the way that glossy plastic does, but will offer more grip than the Black Edition.
Never really seen the point of a DPI switch, seems like a wasted button to me. I'm never switching DPI in the middle of playing a game. I'd much rather have driver software that switched DPI automatically depending on the game being played. I tend to stick to 1600 DPI 90% of the time now anyway.
