Actually you can go very wrong with the DA 3.5G. Just bought a 3.5 Black a week ago and the right button had a gigantic vertical gap between the button and the switch itself, it was completely absurd!
Had to send it back and replace for a different mouse.

Sometimes I clicked and nothing happened, because in fact the button was only making contact with the top of the switch, not actually getting it work downwards, aggravated by the serious lack of click feel due the lightness of DA's switches... specially while using headphones (not hearing the clicks).
And I'm not even starting with the horrendous lift off distance... I've heard it was a bit more than average, but that thing was just ridiculous (using tape is also not the solution that would save this mouse for me).
The design/format is not bad, although I wasn't very fond with the wider front part (made me tilt the mouse a bit)...
The feeling/touch was good, soft and comfy... but it was not the easiest to lift.
Sensor performance was good though.
Side/thumb buttons felt a bit soft as well, and I'm not sure if they would last long before getting wobbly.

I would definitely recommend waiting a bit for the 4G 2013 model to be fixed if considering any DA.
G400 is probably a good bet if you like the right side low profile of it and if you think it fits your hand size... it's not a big mouse and can be too short for larger hands.

I have 5 Deathadders, 2 3Gs, 1 3.5g and 2 BEs, none of them have faults as brutal as those you describe. However, I had received a fake Deathadder once that was really bad (see here)

I'd recommend checking your DA to see if it's genuine.

It was a genuine Black. smile.gif What I've said isn't really different from several opinions out there about the 3.5 model itself...

Ok, the right button gap can be due being a bad sample, but that actually focus the fact that mice nowadays don't have a very consistent quality right out of the box.. which is a shame and should not happen.
Choosing a mouse based on it's tech features is already a hard decision... choosing one that also fits our grip and hand size is even more difficult... if quality inconsistencies out of the box are added in the mix, well... finding a proper mouse is now mission impossible or a lottery.

I've tried the G500 and the scroll continued to spin for ages with a simple fast/short move... then the DA 3.5 Black and the right button had that gap... previously a few years back had a Roccat that had the same gap problem AND double clicking... before that, a Gigabyte M8000 with a scroll that collapsed in no time AND if you squeezed the lateral/thumb area it would bend in and press/activate the side buttons inner mechanism...

Just saying, I'm a bit picky, but nowadays you give 60+ € for a mouse, you would expect much more quality reassurance and piece of mind when you open the box... Doesn't really help to build a client brand confidence.

G500 has "Dual-mode scroll wheel"

You get precise click-to-click scrolling that’s perfect for weapon selection when you’re gaming. Hyper-fast scrolling lets you fly through long Web pages.

Yeah, even at the "tactile mode" the wheel can go on if you spin it hard, consequence of having a weighted mouse wheel =/
