Great mouse, Great feel, decent price. Checks out to me.
My experience with the DeathAdder was a lot like my experience with every other Razer product I've owned (the first one being the Boomslang mouse, in the late '90s): excellent design and precision, paired with shoddy build quality on select components. For every Razer product I've used, the experience remains the same. I love it for several months, and then something goes wrong. Not a huge problem at first, but slowly it starts to become a very aggravating issue. And then it becomes unusable. I search online for a solution, and luckily (I guess) it seems to be a common problem, and people have already devised a fix. It's relatively easy to do, and I've finished the repair in under 15 minutes. Some time later, the problem begins again, so I fix it again. And then it goes wrong again. This cycle repeats itself until the problem becomes unfixable (because you can only bodge the repair so many times before you just can't anymore), and I buy a replacement. The whole cycle usually takes less than two years. When the DeathAdder worked, it worked very well. But this is the last Razer product I intend to buy for awhile, not because it was especially bad, but because it was the latest in a pattern of poor quality that, as a customer, I no longer want to tolerate.
