Deathadder or G400

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I currently own a malfunctioning Steelseries Sensei (warranty expired about a month ago) . I'm looking for a mouse with little to no acceleration, no correction, etc. I was wondering if the G400 or the Deathadder provide each of those, and if so what would you recommend between the two of them. I used to own a G5 and found it comfortable, but I've never really found any mouse to be uncomfortable honestly.

I won't have to use Synapse or Setpoint/Logitech Gaming Software, so that really shouldn't factor into the decision. I simply want the best functioning mouse, with as little issues as possible.

Thanks a lot!

If you live in the US, Best Buy has the G400 on sale for $30 and since you found the G5 comfortable it shouldn't be too much of a difference ( I used to have one and found it to be a bit thinner than the G500 that I bought).

The Deathadder is a good performing mouse as well and can be pretty comfortable but sometimes it goes for $60 and up unless you buy used or online retailers that have it on sale. The 2013 seems to be getting a lot of positive feedback now that the issues seem to be resolved. The Deathadder 2013 can remember the current profile you set up, but I'm not sure about the G400 but my MX-518 required SetPoint.

Both are very good and have no accel/prediction. They also reach very high tracking rates.

Thanks for the quick responses, between the two which would you say has the better build quality?
post #5 of 21
I think build quality is equal on both, but that is a question of personal preference. Some people will tell you that Razer has terrible build quality but I never had any troubles nor did I have to RMA anything. But that is also true for every Logitech mouse I've owned.
I always liked the Deathadder better though because the glossy sides were nice to grip for me. But that's because I have completely dry hands. If you sweat a lot the G400 with it's more grainy feel could do better for you.

My best advice would be to go to a local shop and try the shape of both, see which fits your hand better.

Comparing logitech and razer is a god awful blasphemy. Saying that they are on equal in terms of quality is a lie...

No it isn't, you hear lots of stories about Logitech mice with broken cables etc. Logitech just has a way better RMA policy. Also I didn't mean Razer in general, but the DA specifically. Mine has lasted me 5 years now and is still going stron.

The DeathAdder has a higher malfunction speed compared to the G400, the mouse wheel feels better on the DA and if you're playing a game like CSGO it's easier and more consistent to single tap mouse 1 in a rapid manner due to better switches. I own both mice and both perform great; but the edge goes to the DA in those 3 areas.

Depends what you're looking at.

While Logitech has had superior industrial design, they flip ships internally. Lower end Logitech LED optical mice aren't exactly built with the best or rather average components. In fact main competitors are spending a bit more.

From what I can see, Newer Razer ID has improved, but so has the price. And didn't they drop a year off the warranty? Not sure.

Such claims are meaningless as suface for the most part reflects cursor stability and IPS performance. They'll trade off.
