It's actually terrible, the sensor mainly is the Achilles heel as usual with laser mice. Do not buy that crap.

Also, don't be tied to a specific brand. That's how you end up with crap products that you have to tell yourself are good just because they're by brand X or Y.

Well, now after trying the Steelseries Rival for some days..

Every Deathadder user should try it if he wants to switch.
Imo the Rival is very similar to the Deathadder in shape. For me it's even better as it fills out my palm abit more.

The Sensor is also better, so my opinion:
Steelseries Rival > Deathadder. Period.

100% agree with this, everyone I know who has used the DA before loved the Rival's shape. It certainly fit me like a glove. I just wish they exposed the LOD adjustment

well the thing is... you are going to try a new mouse brand and the style of it is going to be very different so because of that i say the razer mamba... i have the new one and love it to bits... I have given almost the other brands a good try and then settled for the mamba... as i love the feel, the buttons are just in the right place and it just works..

so the mamba is my vote for you as it is the same body and the specs are better so will suite your needs

DA is easy for me to cawl.
Rival is impossible for me to claw and have the same control.

Would use my DA over my rival any day If I had to use either of them again.

Except for claw grips lol I'm amazed you were able to claw such a palmy mouse shape before

Replaced the DA2013 to the rival .. what I like about the rival, is that if your hand is parallel to your body, the mouse sits maybe 1 degree to the left. With the deathadder is sits 5-10 degrees to the left because of the right upper side shape. So moving the hand forwards moves the mouse quite a lot to the right with DA, not only upwards.
What I don't like is the 1000hz performance, tried with driver 1.3.4,1.3.5, firmware 153.0.0.0 (original), 1.2.0.0, usb 3 port, usb 2 port. With DA black it was 995-1000hz on the "mouse movement recorder" software on 99% of the inputs, here it is like 1000 500 900 200 100 300 600 900 1100 300 200 400 hz ... on 500 hz it is almost stable.
The polling rate drops don't happen from slow movement speed with not enough counts to keep up with 1000 counts per sec, as it happens on 5000cpi with constant speed circular motions too.

Same. Everyone who really claws the adder got my respect tongue.gif

So i keep that in mind when recommending.
But really.. everyone who palms the Deathadder likes the Rival shape because it fills out the palm more.

But prolly thats exactly the thing why Deathadder clawers don't like the Rival. They don't like the extended back.

As if you palm the Deathadder the back doesn't fill every part of your palm and still leaves some room.
While if you claw it you prolly move your hand further to the back of the Deathadder which results you have the palm filled while maintaining a comfy claw grip.

Though it's more of a hybrid / special grip. It's not the traditional claw.

Deathadder 2013 with the 3310.
Long lasting build quality.
