Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a new gaming mouse as my old gigabyte broke after acouple of years.
I want a mouse that has a quailty build, feels strong and solid, and also performs excellent.

As all my search's ended up with the Razer Deathadder 2013 which looks crapy and doesn't look like it will last more then 6 months.

The new Logitechs gaming mouses look pretty good, but I don't know how they perform on a gaming basis.

thanks in advanced

Best solution

The deathadder is one of the best, and love lived mouses I have ever used. It has great functionality, and is durable in gaming. It may look cheap, but it is a great performer. I play SC2 at 180 apm so it gets put through abuse. If you dont want extra buttons the abysuss is a great choice as well.

i wouldnt use the new 2013 version... use the older version which has a blue backlight (or the old version which is solid black) since you dont need to use synapse 2.0 then.

my deathadder is at least a few years old and still going strong. good stuff. its one of the very few things that razer actually got right.

Thanks a lot. What mouse pad should I get, for the Deathadder.

I personally have no preference on mousepads, but being such a SC2 player I am, I am using the Heart of the Swarm collectors edition mousepad.

just do yourself a favor and do not fall for the "gaming mousepad" scam.

hard mousepads are actually worse for your mouse. the hard surface wears away at the teflon feet much faster than a cloth mouspad.

the cloth gaming mousepads such as the one from razer are also a bit overpriced for what they are.

i would suggest a standard 1/4" thick cloth mousepad with foam-rubber base. staples used to have the thick ones but they dont anymore. you can however find the thick ones online for like $4-5.

standard black is best. you dont want sharp contrast or there could possibly be issues with tracking.

this is what i use for a mousepad..



yes i know i said not to use highly contrasting images but seeing as how i'm an owner and avid shooting fan i couldnt resist. to be honest the only tracking issues were on the left side with text but now that the pad is getting dirty/worn i dont have the issues anymore.
