  1. Best answer
    I used the 2013 deathadder for a long while, and while I did enjoy it it was cheaply made. There was nothing special about it, but I used it.
    Eventually it developed the well known double click issue (later so did my friends 2013, 2014, and Chroma deathadders).

    I moved to the M65 and am enjoying it far more. Much better construction, better drivers and software, and overall (imo) a better mouse.

    How are the side buttons that are thinner compared to the deathadder's is it a little bit more difficult to click?
  3. Moving from one to the other, it was a bit weird to get used to, but that is one of the features I really appreciate.
    Overall the buttons feel much nicer, and arent hard to press. The deathadder side buttons most of the time got in the way and clicked accidentally. The M65s side buttons almost never have a missclick.
  4. I tried the M65, DA and Sabre RGB (the new one) recently. I loved the feel of the M65, but too heavy for me. The DA felt a little cheap (dare I say!) and didn't suit my claw(ish) grip.

    I actually went for the Sabre in the end, best of everytyhing to me, but of the two there the M65 imo.
  5. Oh yeah, the weight of the M65 is worth noting.
    Due to its aluminum frame is is heavier than plastic mice, and even with the weights taken out it does have some heft.
    I personally enjoy a heavy mouse, and use it with all 3 weights in place.
  6. It certainly felt good. I've just always used lighter mice (RAT 3 before this) so used to the 100g mark ish.

    did the buttons for the dpi at the top annoy you at all or were you clicking them by accident sometimes or no?
  8. They are very much out of the way, I dont even use them (I actually forget they are there)

    Sabre>DA 2013?
  10. I would say the Sabre is better than the Deathadder.
    I would decide between the two corsair mice, they are really personal preference.
  11. All three make the 'best of' lists.

    DA original apparently better than the newer ones...rare now. The m65 is more premium than the sabre but a different mouse really.

    I felt the sabre for me was better than the Da, but mostly cos the da was too long for my grip etc.

    Sensor wise, all are vert good, DA and sabre use the same one (s3989).
