Warning: Fake Deathadders around - Page 8

post #71 of 140
Aliexpress for chinese fakes are like mekka for muslim.

Realy avoid buying anything from ther if you want 100% sure it's original. Buy it on your local market - that is best option - or if you local market does not provide good prices (but it would be weird since Razer have same price policy everywhere) then try to look for distributors from neighbour market.

As for how the real old DA should looks like:

you have it right from box.

I think they make it partially glossy b/c when photo istaken from above it looks like real...

if you want something interesting to read reagiding "fakes" on ebay look this thread.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1324292/warning-fake-deathadders-around

1st page ofc. not sure if you looked at photos(how similar fake and real is)

so i'd say it again: avoid buying anything that is sent from china. 99,999999 it's fake. it might be from same factory, made from same component(less likely) but wont have Quality check and so on.

Thank you for your help. you've been very helpful. I have looked and compared almost in all its parts. Actually, it looked like original to me. you know, golden plated usb, braided cable, black point just near to sensor on bottom surface. even I have checked the blank just after the comma on the model number... But you are right they forget to replicate the right side mirror finish tongue.gif thank you again.

But I do not agree with your idea about religion example above. I think everyone should respect to others beliefs. empathy pls smile.gif

I was not mocking muslims or something like that. It was just comparison that first came to my mind and I dont feel like it's offending them or something, but if it looks like this it's not my intention:)

hi everybody,

I've just joined the forum. Firstly, I must say that I'm impressed by your detection about fake DA. If still there is someone to detect, I want to ask about one.

whay do you say about this one?

http://www.aliexpress.com/item-img/Razer-Deathadder-3500DPI-gaming-mouse-Brand-new-Fast-free-shipping-Without-Retail-packing/1346150494.html#

you know, DA 3.5G get old after DA G4 released. I think that can make the price of 3.5Gs reasonable. Also, the price isn't too low. Also, I've compared all photos if these are really taken from the product. I've seen a lot of positive feedback on comments. Some of buyers says "it is %100 original" tongue.gif also they say software is working on it.

Could you take a look pls? I wanna have this if it is really not fake.

Sorry for my english if there is any mistake.

Thanks in advance.

Hm, it looks real to me. The thing that really gives away the fakes is unfortunately when they do not work with Synapse 2.0 or Razer drivers in general.
Btw in Pic 3 the side is full gloss, it's just a very unfortunate image quality coupled with a very bad angle. The reflection of the table looks like the mouse is rough there.

Anyway, from the looks of it I'd say real.

But Ino, as you did in first post it's really hard to distinguish them even compared one to each other(original/fake). Even if it's real that its reflection of table on gloss paint.. the thing is it's sent from china - product that is like 2 years out of production, and whole auction smells fishy.

In my "carrier" i bought few goods to check if they are fake or original - diffrent brands like SS/ RAZER for example- from fishy deals like this one.. All of them were fakes sent from china. All of them were sold without retail packing

"he thing that really gives away the fakes is unfortunately when they do not work with Synapse 2.0 or Razer drivers in general."

we have no idea if this one works with synapse. there is only photo of it running on laptop and mouse beside it...thats not proof. Same as it's not proof they say it works.

also when you check over Internet unboxings of old deathadder I cant find any with foil over whole bottom side.

SO summarizing - EVEN if not by looks of photos itself(you cannot base you purchase on photos, they might be stock ones or from different auction) you need to judge by auction looks. And it looks fishy as hell. Especially main graphic.

Look at this example, it's from my country:
http://allegro.pl/mysz-optyczna-razer-deathadder-3500dpi-gwarancja-i4036518902.html

this IS fake, probably same source as your auction. Bought from same factory that supplies all kind ebays and other shops with fakes.

It's up to you, i would rather spent few bucks more and have peace of mind - remember goods bought from china means really poor RMA procedure and long time of await.

Thank you for the answer. forgive me but I still couldn't understand. do you mention of this photo ? if you are, I made a comparison.




only this photo makes me confused. otherwise, Ive almost decided to buy it smile.gif

Additionally, Ive asked to seller that if photos are taken from this product. he said yes. Of course he ca say lie to sell it but I don't think 100 pages of commenter do.

I've found very similar photo over internet, same on white table and there you can see its reflection(coz of table texture):
http://i.imgur.com/MLpgtsn.jpg

however even in matter of this fact i still think it;s fake. And comment's? never trust them. Especially 98% of comment on this auction are 5 stars based on fast delivery/good seller, not for product.

1 comment for example:
"does not come with driver SW and driver from Internet does not work 100%. Scroll wheel does not work properly because of SW issue."

so even if software works there might be some issue. eve more fishy.


If you buy this mouse then please come back to us with some small tests to see who was right:)

You are right. Of course I take your comment into account. But, in my country this brand is not widely available. Even if you find it in big cities, price is around 74 $. more than twice. waiting time is not problem for me and I have a lot of friend here shopping from aliexpress.com. They told me that is safe up to 80€ purchase. Shortly, if this is original, I don't want to miss it. smile.gif

thank you.

Yes. many about fast delivery but also there are about product. Can you send the auction link to me where you see that comment? btw I'm asking questions to buyer to understand that is really genuine. Lastly, I sent the photo of right side of original one. Maybe he changes his mind and tell me about the reality tongue.gif

Well, even if the model in the pictures is genuine he could still send you a different one etc. You will not be safe when buying online from an untrusted source. If there is no return policy the risk is on you.
But if you do buy one just try if it works with Synapse, if it does it's genuine.
