Potential Cheap deathadder from ebay - any advice on the prevalence of fakes etc?  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

I'm in the market for a new mouse, come to the conclusion a deathadder would be a pretty good bet. Looking around I've realised I don't particularly care if I get the 2013 one with the green light or the older 3.5G one with 3500 DPI and the blue light. An ebay seller is listing the older blue ones as £12.79 ( seller = okletsgoo ) and I'm sorely tempted yet severely wary. Has anyone had any experiences with this kind of thing on ebay in relation to deathadders? And if so anyone know any more trusted ways to get them, but still taking price into account.

(sorry, don't know if I can post links or not O.o )

Any input welcome.

EDIT looks like seller is based in singapore, not sure how that affects the whole copyright respect fakes etc. judgement.

There are fakes on the market and I have also heard people have received stuff that is very obviously used (even though its claimed to be new). Not even refurbished just strait up worn out crap, frayed cables and all.

Basically if it seems to good to be true there is a very real chance it is.

Cheers, the too good to be true thing was what I was thinking (but secretly hoping that it's all legit and i could get a ridiculously cheap mouse). And thanks for that thread link, Been trying to scrutinize pictures from the ebay listing and compare them to the fake in this one, but I think that's a lost cause tbh :3
