Is the Razer Death Adder worth $49?

#1DoctorRPGPosted 9/5/2013 6:37:18 PM
I've never had a gaming mouse.. I only have a generic dell mouse but I have been getting in to Final Fantasy XIV a lot more recently. Will a Razer Death Adder improve anything over a dell mouse? A lot of people say more dpi in a mouse doesn't really do anything.. What do you guys think?

form factor size and shape is all the adder has going for it (not good for women with petite hands, though)

buttons positioning i guess is good, especially side buttons

but they're sketchy and the mouse wheel is clunky and/or squeaky

they last about 6 months at the most for hardcore gamers

i needed to buy three of them for spare parts to keep one going for a year

Logitech is superior

Worth more like $30 tbh. Get it if you need a mouse though.

Do you punch your mouse?

The DeathAdder is one of the best mice on the market, TC

My mouse supports up to 5700 DPI, I set mine to 400. DPI is useless, don't even think about it.

Most important parts are the overall build quality, quality of the sensor, and how well it fits your grip. Deathadder has the build quality of a cheap Chinese toy, but its sensor is good and iis very comfortable + light.

If you want heavier mice, there's the R.A.T. 9 and Corsair M90/M95. For light~medium mice, there's the Logitech G500 (and Deathadder, of course).

i love my deathadder, it was and is my first gaming mouse. I thought when I first got it that it was a bit too fast, but after some tweaking i love it. I also love how it NEVER gets dirty. My old mouses got dirty as hell, but this some how is flawless, wish i could say the same for my blackwidow keyboard

As for DPI, my mouse gets 6200 DPI and it's wonderful. Just set your in-game sensitivity and windows mouse speed to fairly low, and the smoothness of the high DPI will shine

u srs, they do get dirty. even if you're an obsessive compulsive who always has squeaky clean hands that ppl find odd to shake, they get dirty.

Maybe I should spend my $49 towards a mechanical keyboard instead...

Ah.. what to do. /:
