As for the latest 2 comments saying to go with the DeathAdder; does the Black Edition have the "phillips fail eye sensor"?

As for the DeathAdder Black Edition, I would be buying this straight from Razer seeing as it's not even out yet over here (and probably won't be for months), so I can't actually go ahead and 'feel' or test the mouse. Every review I've read/seen though has said that it pretty much fits every hand/grip, so I won't worry too much about that.

Does anyone actually own one of these? I'm wondering what to make of the new plastic finish on the top. Does it still feel somewhat like the regular rubber-y finish used on for example the DiamondBack? I hope it feels similar, but lasts longer / is stronger. The finish on my current mouse is starting to wear off and there's a hole in it as well which doesn't look particularly nice.
The deathadder BE uses an avago sensor(I can't state which some say it's X avago sensor Razer says it's the same as the normal DA). it's mainly a palm grip mouse but i do fingertip mine. I have a normal deathadder lefty and it's been a great mouse so far.

The Xai was also on my list but I'm keeping that as a last-resort backup. For the price, I'd expect something that looks a little more exciting than my parents' IntelliMouse Explorer. I'll admit, it has a certain level of class to it, and if they were to knock 20-30 euros off of the price I'd probably pick one up right now.

As for the Cyborg mice, I really don't like those. While they may be top of the line when it comes to customizing them, I really hate their looks and I can't believe they would sit comfortably in my hand.

I could of course pick up a regular DB, but I'm growing pretty tired with the glossy sides on the DiamondBack, so I'd rather not have those on my new mouse.

Sorry for all the questions guys, I'm on sort of a tight budget right now and I'll be bummed if I buy something I'll rarely use due to some issues like my Lycosa again. Should've just bought another Saitek Eclipse II again like I probably will now.

I own the BE. The top doesnt really feel like rubber at all, the sides do slightly. The top is just really smooth plastic, and the sides are just a little bit more rubbery plastic, very smooth. If you have clean, dry hands...this mouse has no grip at all. I prefer the glossy sides and rubbery top of the original DA, yea it doesn't look as appealing but it grips much better.
Not trying to knock on the DA BE, its a good mouse. It's not my primary gaming mouse.

Thanks, good to hear it's good for both palm and fingertip . I'll assume the sensor is fine then; whatever avago sensor it is?

I'll assume that the rubbery plastic on the sides will feel similar to the top coating on my DiamondBack. The plastic on the top however, is it just the same cheap plastic you can find on any no-brand $5 mouse, or does it feel like it belongs on a $60 Razer mouse? It's just kind of hard to know what to expect from the pictures alone.

it's the Avago-s3888, so no sensor change,

I own both the DB 3G and DA (C&C Edition). I prefer the ergonomics of the DB to the DA. The DA is more of a palm rather than a fingertips mouse compared to the DB. The DA is heavier and my ring and pinky fingers tire faster because of the shape. This doesn't happen with MX510/518 which I also own. Other than that, both Razers are great.
OP better try out the DA before making a decision. Xai looks to have the better shape for me.

Problem is that none of the cool gaming products like gaming mice are actually sold in stores here, only through websites. I used to have a local store that sold Razer products (got the DiamondBack and my Lycosa there) but they no longer stock Razer's stuff unfortunately.

Just put in the order for a DeathAdder Black Edition (and a free Razer beanie ). The mouse is flagged as back order, hope that doesn't mean it'll take ages to get here.

Thanks for the help guys! REP+ for all of you .

The Naga really doesn't seem like something I'd wanna use.
