It so much better that the original Deathadder. The feeling is like a Xai but the top is slightly smoother/slipperier.

It'll take more convincing than that to make me move back to my DA after having this G500.

Still, looks brilliant. I'm not a fan of the texture that they have on the top of the DA's, it scratches and gets dirty too easily. The scrollwheel looks like it's been improved.

Is it the same sensor as the 3.5G? The black edition has its own driver is why I ask.

"Release Log:
- Initial Release
Note: Compatible with Razer DeathAdder BlackEdition only."

I liked the original DA, but that's just me.

Gratz on your new purchase BTW.

Looks awesome, can't wait for mine to come. Is the top plastic or does it still have a rubbery texture?

Also, when I first looked at your pics I thought, "Why the hell did they put a signature on the side of the mouse like that??". Then I derped.

Only other sensor it could be is the new 3090.

I'll let you know once I receive mine but tbh, I think it's just due to this mouse not having LED's.

So tempted to buy since it wont have the glossy sides. I like the glowing logo on my 3.5G though.

Agreed.

I turn my leds off anyway, so no loss there. I really am tempted to grab this now that I've seen it side by side with a conventional DA. I *love* the matte sides.

The scrollwheel feels the same; probably just a change of colour. The texture of the DA is close to the Xai. Smoother and less rubberly than the Xai's texture.

The top is plastic. Feels really smooth. Cant describe how good it feels.
IMO, they should ditch the rubber idea and make the whole mouse from the material they use for the top.

Snip
Nice.

Do you know the Lift off Distance with that KAI.G3 by any chance?

Edit:

Just revived mine and I'm honestly in LOVE with the coating used on top of the shell. It's pretty similar to the Xai/Kinzu but feels slightly more plasticy.

The sensor works perfectly fine and doesn't produce any apparent jitter or flaws. I would love to open this up to check if they switched the sensor (hopefully an Avago 3090?

), but I rather wait for my replacement feet to get here first.

Oh and to those that are wondering, this utilizes it's own firmware. V1.00 just like the drivers

Like the standard 3.5G, the feet are slightly too thin and the body digs into the surface. I'm also not too fond of the scroll wheel, but it's defiantly better than what I'm used to (IE: 1.1/3.0)

Overall I am VERY pleased with this Razer product. I honestly wish that they would at least attempt to pump out more products without stupid glossy plastics and LEDs, but this is indeed a good start.

Pros:

-Sensor
-Body/coating

Cons:

- Scroll wheel
- Mouse feet too thin/bottom shell defect.
- High lift off distance on dark mousepads.

How does the top material compare to the original DA in terms of grip?

Also I fail to see why anyone would just want glossy plastic over the entire mouse and expect to use it for gaming or to stay looking as clean and shiny as when you first bought it.

Just give me back my ambidextrious Razer Copperhead with the same exact body and rubber side rails (less inward on the bottom sides would be ok too), a newer awesome sensor like the ADNS-3090, and larger, better feet and I will not find a reason to use anything else.
