More about : choosing gaming mouse

With so many gaming mouse available in the market, it can be pretty hard to decide which one suits you the best since a good gaming mouse is very important to gamers. Using a specially designed mouse for gaming will allow you to play games at your best, with the best accuracy and control.There are many features you should look for in a gaming mouse. Some of features include the sensitivity, the buttons, the weight, grip and cost.It's best you go in a store and test them out so you can pick the right one but if you can't then i personally would go with the Razer Deathadder out of those three.I expect little debate from members on this one. Razer’s Deathadder is a favorite among competitive gamers across all genres.

The Deathadder features 5 programmable buttons, that of which are intelligently placed on the side of the mouse, which fortunately result in infrequent accidental clicking of the buttons. The mouse perfectly curves to the shape of your hand (left hand model available as well!), and the non-slip, extra-large buttons improves your feeling of stability.

Aesthetic-wise, the Deathadder is about as sleek as it gets, with a flat-black color scheme, accentuated by the LED glow of the clickwheel when plugged in. As for DPI, the current model offers an industry standard of 3500, but you shouldn’t get caught up on the DPI number, as its importance is often overstated. Also worth mentioning is the Deathadder’s lack of DPI adjustment buttons. Personally, I find this to be more of a pro than con, as the risk of accidentally adjusting your DPI midgame is not worth the ability to change DPI on the fly. The vast majority of gamers leave their DPI at the same setting, regardless of what computer game/activity is being done.

The original Deathadder also hits the perfect price point for a gaming mouse at around $45.

The Deathadder is the flagship gaming mouse of Razer, and continues to be Razer’s best selling mouse, despite its old age (released in late 2006!). I think that speaks volumes on its perfected design and unrivaled reliability.

New 2013 Razer Deathadder:

The newest version incorporates a rubber grip on the side for extra stability.Anyways hope that helps if not wait for more replies.I really honestly recommend you go to the store and test them all out so you know which one is best for you anyway good luck!

sorry dude but i gotta pipe up and say your making a mistake. the original death adder was a great mouse. the problem lies in the new 1s that have an updated sensor that suffered all the issues that plague the Lachesis, naga and mamba before the latter 2 were refreshed.. for this mouse the move from optical to laser sensor really has spoiled it. dont get me wrong if you havent used a deathadder before you wont notice the differences. but if your switching up from the optical mouse to the laser i guarantee you wont be that impressed.
what made the deathadder great in the first place was the high dpi optical sensor. it was pretty much the best of its time back in 2006 but today the new models are just run of the mill and very average.
today if im picking a mouse i say look for mice with the avago sensors (the latest 1s) and omron switches. 1s you have them 2 requirements look for a shape that fits your hand.

Thanks a lot. The new deathadder was my first choice. But I'm kinda torn between the deathadder and the roccat kova plus. The new deathadder has a 6400 dpi and the roccat kova plus has a 3200 dpi. I've never used a gaming mouse before so i dont know if i need 6400 dpi. Plus the kova plus has more programmable buttons and i do need more buttons. I've also read that the kova plus has a lot of issues like mouse jumping, drivers not responding in windows 7 64 bit,etc etc,.

No problem.You're welcome!Yes it's a hard choice lol!I have heard the same as you about the issues with the roccat kova plus but i have never personally use it so i do not know if that's true or not though i do not see why anybody would just make that up so you might not want to risk it.

my bad i guess razor have finally listened and moved away from the philips twin eye they were using in pretty much all there high end mice.
optical does have its limits but generally they are more accurate suffer less with acceleration issues and prediction isnt as intrusive as on a laser.
reason i posted is i hadnt seen the new iteration as i have been ignoring razor products for the last 2 years due to previous experience of over priced low quality products.
but i will be taking a trip to my local supplier and he will let me have a play with it to see if it is actually an improvement.
