Review of the Deathadder 2013 - Page 15

post #141 of 345
Guys, I just got this mouse in the mail (after waiting a month for it. Damn you Christmas!) And I must say...It's ******* incredible. I was not expecting such massive improvement over the Black Edition. I just got it for the new sensor and check out if the new switches can change the mushy feeling of the Black, and this mouse is way better. Switches are much more haptic, feels much more like my Sensei, which I've been desperately trying to find a match for as I love the mouse, but hate the metallic paint, the stucco plastic hood feels great and the laser seems just as accurate, but different feeling.

Also, this mouse seems to perform better at higher DPI. I used my Black at 1200, which feels too slow for the 2013.

Props to Razer...

I used my Deathadder 3g at 1800dpi (it's default DPI setting). I couldn't adjust to running this one at 6400dpi at all, dialed it back to 1800 and it feels smooth as silk like the old Deathadder. The mouse buttons are crisp and clean, the mousewheel is GREATLY improved, and the rubber side grips are very comfortable. The mouse feet themselves are not nearly as smooth or slick as the 3G deathadder's were, so I'll be needing to replace the feet with something a bit smoother.

Very happy with the purchase though biggrin.gif

Just got mine, can't really fault it. Feels much better built and better to hold than the older deathadders. Works brilliant at 800dpi, and there is no need to have Synapse running anymore once you have configured the mouse.

Don't mean to bump but just wanted to ask anyone who has it. Does the lighter weight bother you guys at all? Coming from my Corsair M60 I've come to realize just how much that weight helped me out. I ended up with a deathadder black and love it, but I want the 2013 if only because he has actual rubber grips and not some silly coating that will just rub off. But I'm not sure if the weight difference will be welcome.

Don't worry about the weight. In Terms of weight you will feel no difference if you loved the DA BE. Compared to other Mice I have it feels more heavier than light. The DA 2013 is absolutely high class. I was never a real big Fan of my lef hand DA 3.5 G or even not really convinced with the DA BE, which I liked more than the regular 3.5 G by the way, but Razer managed it with the DA 2013 and since I am playing as a Righty. The DA 2013 totally convinced me in all Aspects and I really got high claims on my Equip because I bought and tried many Mice and always got the Comparison to other high or low Quality Products.

No matter at what you look, they improved everything from the Switchfeeling, the Mousewheel, the great Mainshape-Material they used, the fantastic rubberside grips and so on.

For me it's a outstanding mouse.

Not to mention the new optical Beast.

I use it out of the Box with 1800 dpi and 500 Hz by default without Synapse and couldn't be more pleased as with this Mouse.

It's just sexy. Doesn't mean I will never ever try another Mouse because I right now I am expecting my last Order for the next three months from China for example, what means two original sealed Intelli Explorer 3.0 are on their way to me. I always just wanted to try this Mouse even I know the Sensor from the IMO 1.1 because a whole Generation of Players and also legendary used the IME 3.0.

But that doesn't change that I am pretty sure that many of you will pull the Ace with the DA 2013 if you look for Perfection. And I already know that those Intelli 3.0 which have a similar Shape as the DA 2013 will never ever be better than the DA 2013. They will be worse in every Aspect to be concrete, because I know the old Intelliquality from the IMO 1.1 and the WMO, but I will try them for fun.

Why aren't you playing left handed if you've already acquired some skill to do so? 

 

My grip for example is totally different when it comes to left hand (proper) vs right hand (improper).  I mean I can grip the mouse, the the natural design never really fits. I find myself putting more pressure at a slight "\-\" angle, instead of |-|.  Spawn shape is the only exception as it forces you hand into a certain grip. 

 

After learning how to play left handed, I realized where the fault lies and tbh, it's now very uncomfortable playing with a "proper" grip method in a relaxed manner.  Sad thing is ...im still capable of a lot more right handed.  personally should have swapped a long time ago.

Because I was both-handed from childhood like playing naturally tabletennis or tennis with the right hand and wrote in school with the left. I was also talented to use both feet as a Soccerplayer, but that hasn't to do something with the hands, but also shows that my brain is able to learn those bothsided things. ^^

And personally the reason was that I couldn't accept it anymore playing with cheap plastic garbage like the intelli 1.1 or even the better but to small constructed zowie am. Especially if I looked at the fantastic right hand mice on the market like a G400 or now the DA 2013 which I couldn't play with my average big hands.

Personally I know it needs a lil bit time to reach my left sided level in CSGO, but if I wouldn't know that I am able to reach this faster than a few may think, I wouldn't do it. And I got enough time you know. wink.gif

I just had to set the right bindings for me cause I got a handicap on my lil left finger but now it works and just needs practice.

I am playing with the weirdes keyboard and mice movement setup in a fps ever.

what I am doing right now is walking forward with mouse 2, left with e and my forfinger, right with space and my thumb and back with s and my middlefinger.

around that I got everything binded you need in CSGO. Dircet weaponswitches and nades and so on. sounds weirdo but you can be theoretically the best player in the world with this setup and I am able to learn those things pretty fast.

Controlling the mouse with the right hand wasn't a big problem from the beginning, but especially to handle the keyboard so complex in a fps regular over wasd like cs was a challenge. especially because of my left lil finger. wink.gif

I got a better grip and feeling with the Deathadder in my right now than in the left by the way.

I can also do things with both hands. Learned mouse + keyboard right handed simply because it "seemed" proper, as a lot of different things.

 

I tried swapping to left hand in the past, but could barely move my mouse. I was at a point where anyone would think it's impossible, though there was something about that left handed DA that motivated me to put in hours and convert. Hasn't been a year yet, but my general aim is much better^^  basic muscle memory/dex, still a little worse.

 

 

 

 

Anyway. That's really weird how the right hand is more comfortable ;o

hehe already read it in another thread that you also played the mouse with both hands. some of the smartest people on earth were ambidextrous like einstein if I remember right. so we are welcome. XD

What about the lift off and spinning issue that a lot of people keep talking about ?
