Razer Deathadder 3.5G button issue.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN I have recently purchased 3.5G DA and after about 10 days of intensive normal use in SC II (where I click about 100 times per minute) the buttons have become very stiff and difficult to press. This makes it very difficult to play at full strength in a game. Is the quality of Razer really so poor? If so its a great shame because the pointing accuracy of the mouse is very good.

So the question now remains what to do after about (estimating here) 100 clicks per minute * 5 hours of SC II per day * 10 = 36000 clicks the mouse buttons are starting to become so stiff and non responsive that it takes a lot of effort to press and depress them. For a game like StarCraft II this really makes every game a grueling struggle.

I did not abuse this mouse much save for tapping the mouse on my SteelSeries QcK mouse pad from 3 inches high several times. I cannot believe such an expensive product has such poor durability.

I've done many more clicks on mine (years of HoN and Dota2) so I think it is safe to assume that something is wrong.

And do you really have a lift off of 3 inches or were you slamming it?

I slammed it several times on the QcK pad previously I owned a wireless Microsoft mouse and that was tapped quite a few times (sometimes hard) but it clicked fine and worked perfectly for about 4 years.

It may be due to the poor design of the mouse - if you press the LMB far enough down you actually can hear it grinding against the plastic body of the mouse, repeated wear and tear has caused stickiness of the buttons.

The mouse works but it feels like the buttons take a lot of effort to depress, making a long SC II games a grueling struggle and unenjoyable and also frustrating.

Eh, what the hell do I do now? I can't go on playing with this poorly manufactured piece of plastic - I need suggestions for an accurate mouse that has good buttons and will last a long time and isn't so fragile.

RMA it, both deathadders that I've owned have been very easy to depress, even after years of use. Your experience is not typical.

It's up to you if you want to switch it out for a new mouse, but the Deathadder isn't poorly built. It has an average build quality, nothing more, nothing less.

Do you have like a foot of lift height and slam it down every time?

Ah, I managed to fix the issue of a stiff left button, I simply removed the anchoring piece of plastic that goes into the mouse body and then forced it back in, clicks are now springy and have good feedback. Problem solved.
