Warning: Fake Deathadders around - Page 14

post #131 of 140
I have a deathadder for my laptop.... I'm pretty sure it's legit but now I want to verify...

...even though all of my current Razer hardware I've picked up at Best Buy...I still feel a need to make sure.

I bought one of those from aliexpress recently and it performs exactly like the one I bought in a store back then. Sorry you got unlucky with the one you got. Most likely QC is nonexistent for those units so it's a bit of a gamble. Definitely worth it for that price if you get a working unit, though.

many aliexpress ones are legit
most of them i'd say
both 3.5g's and 2013/chromas

If the software recognizes it then it's most likely a legit version, but has a defect. So RMA is the only way to go from there.

Wrong, as they've learned to emulate firmware using some cheap MCU, a while ago. The fw is even (re)flashable.

If it has 0.5m/s max. tracking speed and is recognized by Synapse and legacy driver, bet it's the same type of replica i've got two times in a row, with Kailh switches and a removable weight inside. I liked the wheel and the build quality in general of the fake one more, by the way.

kokoska, If it's a suspected fake, do insist on a refund without return of the goods with no fear. Most of Deathadders labeled as 'new' in cheaper segment on Ali and Ebay are most likely fake. Buy either heavily used ones, or new ones from trusted sellers (takasta, etc.).

As you see in the video, it won't track my movement, he is still ignoring me so i'll need to open a dispute which i really wanted to avoid by showing him obvious defection on a video, but yeah, next time ill buy from someone that has a high feedback..

Saves you in the long run when you buy anything from them.

Fleabay has it's own habitat for attracting some nasty and deceitful sellers so be aware of that fact. Usually the feedback system works for those rip-off merchants, as it should.

When I buy something from that place, I want that exact item delivered to my front door within a short amount of time with no excuses.
