Deathadder question

#1Sora_AnbuPosted 7/16/2014 7:26:41 PM
So, I've got an interesting setup, normally I use a trackball, but lately I've been using a razer naga. But since I picked up the deathadder from bestbuy (that and a $50 steam card for 49.99, sweet deal) it hasn't been tracking well on my "mouse pad" a bamboo cutting board. Never had issues with any other mice, and the DA works well on clothed or normal mouse pads. I was curious to why this sucks on my bamboo mouse pad whereas my old naga works perfectly fine. Oh and if there's a fix or I just have to suck it up and use a normal mouse pad.

My deathadder had some weird tracking issues when i was using it on my desk. I solved it by sticking on more mouse feet since the ones it comes with are really thin.

You could try tape or something if you don't have any extra feet handy. Just need something to prop it up so the sensor isn't so close to the surface which i think was the issue for mine.

I might do that, but my bamboo is very grabby, which might cause issues with some tapes. Might just use a conventional mouse pad with it.

$50 for $49.99+ tax..... great deal?

Edit, nevermind, I get it. Mouse + card for $50. That is sweet.

Yes, I got the mouse and a $50 steam card for $49.99+tax. How is that not a great deal?

I love killing Death Adder, it's become a great past time since 1990.

The Deathadder is an optical mouse so it doesn't work on every surface. Your Naga is a laser mouse which is why it does. Optical mice have better performance but you have obviously experienced the drawback.
