The Deathadder Elite is Razer"s lakiểm tra version of the slithery beasts product line that has been in our shops & (some) hearts for over ten years now. The Deathadder has been regarded by some as one of the best gaming mice since its first release thanks to its brilliant ergonomic shape và reliable performance. The newest iteration features performance upgrades but the shape và weight remain the same.

The Deathadder Elite replaces the DA Chroma & features the PMW3389 which is a custom made sensor between razer và PixArt & brings up lớn 16,000 DPI. This newer version also carries a few extra buttons for on the fly DPI switching. It weighs a mere 96 grams which aren"t too bad & sees it somewhere in the middle when comparing to lớn others. Its awesome shape means a variety of hvà sizes và grip types are compatible with the Deathadder. Despite being released in năm 2016 this refined version still retails at around £60/$60 which is just about affordable for a luxury E-sports gaming mouse.

Size & Weight


The Deathadder Elite is the exact same dimensions as its previous iteration at 12.7 x 7 x 4.4 cm và its designed khổng lồ fit medium-sized hands. Some bởi vì find it a bit long but it"s only a millimetre shorter than the EC1-B from Zowie whilst being the same amount wider và higher. It"s a great kích cỡ and fits in my h& snuggly, you can actually notice the 1milimet difference in length khổng lồ the EC1-B. I can relax my palm & hvà on the mouse when casually browsing without touching much of the mouse pad. However, when it comes khổng lồ gaming the smoothly rounded hump in the middle supports me leaning with my knuckles & gives my grip extra comfort. The mouse is great for my hand (18x11 cm) but if you have long hands don"t be put off, its shape feels long enough to lớn accommodate for longer hands while being wide enough to lớn tư vấn even the thickest of sausage fingers.

The Deathadder is a mouse for all và has cut the weight by around 40g from its previous version (148g) which is a massive sầu difference. It doesn"t feel heavy at all and could, without doubt, be used by a bạn with small hands thanks lớn the shape being so easily gripped. It weighs the same as the Rival 600 but the Elite feels lighter than its previous version due khổng lồ having bigger feet on the bottom, which are now two large strips similar to the Mamtía allowing the mouse khổng lồ move with more freedom. The weight of the Elite is heavy enough that you notice pushing around the mouse but light enough for it khổng lồ glide with ease and assist with fast fragging.

Shape & Texture

The Deathadder line of mice are ergonomically designed khổng lồ fit in your right hand & it achieves high status by being arguably one of the best shapes you can buy in a mouse. The Elite is an extremely good looking mouse through its simple shape and high chất lượng finish. It"s riddled with soft gentle curves & sloping bends lớn give sầu the ultimate experience in comfort. The thumb groove appears lớn be the perfect size for my thumb and features textured rubber grips that cement your hand lớn the device. The grips have a nobbly hexagon like texture & feel part of the mouse rather than stuchồng in place (which they definitely are). The raised middle of the mouse sits right under your knuckles & seems khổng lồ add lớn the feeling of complete control when you grip the mouse. The DA Elite gently slopes towards the front allowing your fingers to nestle in the grooves of the buttons.

The matte blaông chồng finish is all over this version and is no longer a mixture of materials or shades. With the matte finish, rubber grips và a fantastic shape this mouse isn"t going lớn go flying out of your h& even with the last resort 180 fliông xã shots. The smooth finish is great but particularly so for anyone with a slightly sweatier palm. The top shell is all once piece of thin robust plastic that feels very sturdy. I shook và squeezed the mouse to lớn see if there was anything thảm bại or weak but I couldn"t notice any issues.



The Elites primary buttons feature co-developed Omron switches that last 50 million clicks which is very durable. They have an excellent actuation và a very satisfying audible clichồng. It"s worth noting the main buttons are part of the main shell to lớn the mouse but this didn"t bring any issues và the switches were still easily clickable when placing my fingers further towards the middle of the mouse. In full palm grip, I did accidentally cliông xã the right-hvà primary button a couple of times but it was while browsing the internet not playing.

There is a clickable scroll wheel sat in the middle of the switches as you would expect which you can program. The wheel gives tactile feedbachồng when you scroll và does it almost silently which I lượt thích as I found the new Zowie EC series to be far too loud when scrolling. There is a nice bumpy rubber texture on the wheel lớn give you some extra grip.


Sat behind the wheel is two DPI buttons we see on a lot of Razer mice these days for on the fly changes which is only really useful in certain games lượt thích overwatch but if you have sầu ever used a "sniper" button in the past then this could emulate that without being as convenient. I personally don"t change DPI as it"s been mix the same for the last 10 years now but they have a nice responsive sầu click and work so no complaints here.

The side buttons on the Deathadder Elite are really good và probably the best in terms of how easy khổng lồ use they are compared khổng lồ other mice. they sit just above your thumb và depending on your grip you may be slightly touching them already. Its the position of the buttons that makes them so easy to cliông xã as I can just roll my thumb up to lớn either when I need khổng lồ actuate them. They feel sturdy & don"t move sầu around too much as some cheaper mice buttons vì chưng. I made use of the side buttons for quickly selecting grenades và they never let me down in CSGO once.


The cable is 2.1 metres long & is braided like most Razer mice. The braiding is quite tight though & gives a fairly smooth feel to lớn the cable making it snag a lot less compared to lớn other braided cables I"ve used. The braiding does offer extra protection but as I use a bungee my cables don"t really get damaged anymore or snag. They do however piông chồng up dust và most braided cables are obviously harder to lớn clean than non-braided but to lớn be fair to lớn razer the pros outweigh the cons for the cable. I only use wired mice with bungees (its a personal rule) and unfortunately, the cheap budget bungee wasn"t very useful and the cable was sliding up và down like a fireman. All of the other bungees I"ve tested held the cable perfectly though without any slipping.

Sensor và Performance

It"s harder to get a reputable mouse over £50/$50 that has a terrible sensor these days và as you"d expect from this newer Deathadder its got some great performance under the shell. It features the slightly tweaked PMW3389 sensor we have sầu seen Razer use in a lot of their lakiểm tra mice. The sensor can go up to lớn 16,000 DPI if you ever needed this monumental option but more importantly, it has an IPS speed of 450 meaning you can accurately traông xã targets at inhuman speeds.

The sensor was flawless in-game and tracked with zero smoothing or jitter. I mostly play FPS & this mouse was excellent in CSGO largely down khổng lồ the incredible shape but this sensor didn"t let me down and I found snapping to targets very easy once I was used to the weight of the mouse. Zoomed in on targets I didn"t notice any strange movements from my crosshair even on my relatively old mouse pad. While making fast movements with the mouse I didn"t get any spin-out from the sensor. The precision of the sensor when accompanied by such a comfortable shape gives you a real weapon in your h& & it"s definitely a mouse worth getting used khổng lồ if you haven"t already.

The DeathAdder comes preprogrammed lớn its lowest DPI option (800), so you could never use the software if you wanted but to truly customise your device you will need to install Synapse which in recent years has become a lot easier to use and a lot more reliable. If you already have Razer Synapse installed for another device it will instantly recognise và install any new Razer devices for you. Through the software, you can kiểm tra for updates and customise the mouse khổng lồ your own specifications. You can also have sầu the software automatically update device drivers for you.

Our Verdict

Overall the Deathadder Elite is a brilliant mouse. It"s worth mentioning you could probably get a similar spec mouse for less lượt thích the Hyperx Pulsefire Pro but would it have sầu the same shape and materials? No. I don"t think the value of the Deathadder is bad at all & I know Razer does charge a premium but this mouse is surely worth it. It has one of the comfiest shapes I"ve sầu ever played games with và it"s so good it feels natural across all games I"ve sầu played not just FPS. The finish và added grip is a welcomed change from older versions as the mouse now sit permanently in my palm and it"s very hard khổng lồ chiến bại control of the mouse. It doesn"t feature any cosmetic customisation & it doesn"t have as many programmable buttons as other mice do but this high performing serpent is the deadliest I"ve sầu ever held and has to lớn be considered by the masses!
