The last Deathadder I used was the 3.5G Black Edition with the legacy software, which I still have boxed up in pristine condition. I had to stop using razer mice after that because of Synapse, so this a huge step in the right direction. Thank you.

Sorry for the late reply, I checked the sticker under the mouse and it says made in China.

I contacted Razer about it and they are arranging for a replacement. Hopefully the replacement won't feel like clicking in mud haha

If you are really unhappy with your new DA I recommend getting it replaced. Hopefully you can walk in to the retailer and will not need to pay for postage as it is a lot of bother for a low priced item.
I think one of the bigger differences is that the new one has Razer's recently released optical switches as opposed to the old Omrons they used to use. They feel pretty different to regular mechanical switches which I noticed on both of my Vipers, but in this case it just seems like either the DA v2 either has badly designed buttons for these switches or my copy is faulty. I'm trying to get the receipt from the guy I purchased it from (I bought it used, previous owner only used it for a few hours) but he is insisting that the warranty is not valid if I'm not the original owner. He bought it directly from Razer.

Have about two old DA 2013s but they both creaked like vintage old doors opening and closing in some vintage horror house movie.

The body was so thin that I actually broke the side section towards the front, when I played some stupid game in that time period.

Razer could only develop a lighter mouse by using less plastic then, hence the fragility of the DA 2013 which many did complain about when it was first released and sold to the public.

YES it really had super fine mouse buttons and even a decent scroll wheel bundled with that model. Pity I broke them. The very first mouse release that I managed to destroy, just by touching them with my right hand.

However, I don't know if it's just my copy or if they are all like this, but my lord.. The primary clicks on my copy feel like total mush.

I have both the Viper and Viper Ultimate which have the same optical switches, and while those weren't my favorite clicks they feel far, far better than my DA v2. The right click is the worst offender, both buttons have more pre-travel and post travel than I'd like, but M2 has the most of both. The button kind of creaks as well and you can feel the button flexing as you press down on it. Tactility is very poor as a result.

I did get this mouse for less than half of it's RRP here in Australia so I'm not overly concerned, but out of pure curiosity, does anyone else here have this mouse? How do your main buttons feel? I have the old Deathadder Elite and I feel like the clicks are a major step down from what that mouse had, but pretty much every other change seems to be an upgrade.

r0ach Although I haven't used a Viper, so not sure about the clicks personally, if Razer is to not go bankrupt, I don't think you should use any type of mouse switches that aren't conducive to spam clicking. What I mean is, games like MOBAs are probably even bigger than FPS nowadays and they simply cannot be played without relatively light clicks. You're clicking multiple times per second for an entire 20-50 minute game.

Other list of things for Razer to do:

I seem to recall the Razer Lancehead TE identifying itself to Windows as 1 mouse and 2 keyboards. Cursor movement on this mouse was not very good compared to other competitors at the time like Sensei 310's 3360. Ideally a mouse should only identify itself to Windows as a mouse and not a keyboard at all like the Kana V2 and older mice, but if you insist on having it identify as a keyboard too for some sort of macro support, it definitely should not identiy itself as two keyboards. You think this stuff doesn't matter, but it does and will cause Windows to give you worse cursor movement.

More recently I realized over the years (most likely working with office mice) that my grip had transitioned to claw, from palm. Looking at the current offerings from Razer they all miss the mark for my needs. Having tested out the Mamba elite, Basilisk, Viper, Death adder elite,Lancehead, non quiet handle like my current set up.
