Get a 2013 Deathadder?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Thinking of upgrading my DA to the 2013 edition. Should I even bother? I do like the new side grips.

The side rubber grips are nice, but the thing I like best about it is the surface of the plastic. It is very grippy and rough compared to the super smooth plastic of the predecessor. And the mousebuttons have a much more quality feel to them compared to the old DA.

its a downgrade in terms of sensor performance, new deathadder has a lot of "smoothing" to achieve extremely high 6400dpi
3.5G also is not the most responsive mouse

you can see few threads here where people complain about latency

I prefer the 2013 over the old one. But I wouldn't buy it if I had a working deathadder already.

if you like the ergonomics, don't replace it because there are few mice if any with better sensors than the DA 3.5g and probably none that are still in production.

I gotta say, I really like the ergonomics of the deathadder. I do like a bigger mouse. How are the steelseries mice?

You should look into the steelseries rival, hard to get atm but its like the deathadder but with a upgraded sensor and larger.
