(70 ratings)


The Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse has a powerful 6400dpi optical sensor and 4G sensor that reacts to your slightest touch for instant in-game plays. With no drift control, this mouse detects all those minor movements that are crucial for better accuracy. This ergonomic mouse with rubber side grips helps you stay in control no matter how aggressively you swipe.

More Information

  • The 6400dpi optical sensor reacts to your slightest movement, while the 4G sensor glides easily over any surface.
  • You'll be able to make more precise, minor movements with no drift control. This is especially vital for first person shooter gamers pulling off that perfect headshot.
  • Even when your mouse sensitivity is scaled down to the lowest dpi settings, you can still get 200ips and 50G acceleration, which ensures an almost 1-to-1 response between the mouse and your game.
  • The DeathAdder has an ergonomic shape that incorporates rubber side grips. Your fingers will stay firmly in control of the mouse no matter how aggressive your swipes get.
  • Includes five independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons, on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment, Always-On mode, and zero-acoustic Ultraslick mouse feet.

If you're in the mouse market, STOP and buy this product!

This is a great mouse for whatever your needs. I know it's marketed as a gaming mouse and, don't get me wrong, it's an outstanding one, but it's also simply a great mouse more generally. I've adopted it as my mouse for whatever the situation and couldn't recommend this mouse more for a desktop. Obviously if you're on the go more often maybe look for a wireless mouse, but this product excels at doing what it's supposed to do. Also I really enjoy all the customizability with this mouse from colour control to button shortcuts. I highly recommend trying one of these bad boys out for yourself!

Really great mouse

I got the mouse not too long ago, and I think it is just amazing. It may not be the cheapest gaming mouse, but for the price it is very worth it. It's very comfortable and easy to use so I definitely recommend it.

First Razer experience, but the best experience.

I really like the mice. It's responsive and it's a good experience considering that my last mice kept malfunctioning. Overall, the DeathAdder is very well made and it will give you a very good time. I am happy to say that I am now part of the Razer Fanbase! (Cult of Razer). The only problem is that since this is my first Razer product, I had to download a lot of software to really get the most out of it, but the waiting was well worth it. Good job Razer. gg.

Finally able to give DeathAdder a shot

I was waiting and waiting for my old mouse to finally give in. The left and right click of my old mouse would at times not register. So I went to my local Bestbuy to grab a Razer DeathAdder without any hesitation. It was an easy choice for me just from reading the endless positive reviews it had gotten and continue getting as well. My first impression of the mouse was it's super slick and design and it feels great in my palm, the clicks on all the bottoms are very responsive and it glides very nicely on my Razer Goliathus Control mouse pad. The green light on the scroll wheel and fade in and out logo light are just icing on the cake. Would definitely recommend this product to my gamer friends. Need a new mouse? Grab this one, you will not be disappointed.

Great Mouse for Gaming

Received this mouse as a gift and it works great! The mouse is designed in a way which fits the user's hand comfortably, works perfectly and looks beautiful. Would definitely recommend this to a friend or to someone who is new to gaming!

Great Mouse, Great Product.

I'm now on my second Deathadder (because the old one got abused in bouts of gaming rage xD). I had the first one for over 5 years, and it held up right until the end. I never had any issues with it, it was always plug and play. It's extremely comfortable in my hand, and has lasted me hours of non-stop gaming sessions. The only reason I give it 4/5 stars is I wish there was a toggle button for DPI on it, as well as the price is a little high compared to competitor's. The reason I bought a second Deathadder, even with these "cons" is because I was THAT impressed with it the first time around. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a decent and simple gaming mouse. Just try and catch it on sale and you will have ZERO regrets.

Best bang for the buck!

Can't say enough good things about this mouse. The mouse is so precise, it makes my gaming experience a lot more enjoyable. What I like the most about this mouse compared with all the other mice I previously owned is the sturdiness of the side buttons. They work so well and are well positioned. The price is also unbeatable for the quality!

Great... While it lasted

Good mouse. Has good ergonomics, and feels very accurate. Unfortunately, it broke TWO times in 16 months. First time the scroll wheel broke, and sent it in for repairs. After I got it back, it worked for about another 8 months before the left mouse click gave up. This time the mouse was out of warranty and I had to buy myself a different mouse. Oh well maybe I just got unlucky.

Very good mouse for the price.

I use a Deathadder at work and it does a pretty good job. However, I think it is too light. I would easily recommend it to anyone.

scroll wheel broke

Owned this mouse for one and half year and now scroll wheel broke. Bad quality cause its kind of pricy compared with other mouses.

Great gaming mouse.

Got it while it was on sale during Cyber Monday. The mouse is very responsive when clicking and moving and the grip feels solid. Love the illuminating light on the mouse, but it would be even better if it was customizable with an array of colours. Overall I love it!

Great Mouse.

Its an amazing mouse, fits very well in my hand, and reacts very well to clicking and movements. (My friends would argue that the sensitivity is too high, but I play with high sensitivity.)

DeathAdder Mouse

I use to play with the older DeathAdder and it finally quit on me after many years of use, as a replacement I bought a EVGA Torq mouse and tried that for a few months, let's just say I'm very happy to be back using a DeathAdder. :)

Quality Product

I was skeptical at purchasing at first but my friends had recommended Razer to me. After trying it out in-store it seemed like a good fit and so far I have been very pleased. The mouse is comfortable in the hand, the buttons are responsive and easy to reach and it has a nice look. I absolutely love the no-tangle cord design. The built-in software is a cool feature as it allows you to bring your settings with you wherever you go (cloud based). I wish the price was a bit lower but overall it seems to be worth what I paid. I would continue to buy Razer products based on this mouse.

The Best Mouse Ever Until Using It For 2 Years

This mouse got me to global in csgo! I one tap people easy until the mouse randomly disconnects which made my team (Tauned) lose a esea match

Fantastic Product! Nothing bad to say about it.

About 3weeks ago, I saw that this product was on sale for [...] dollars. So I said "Why not?" and went to the biggest best buy in the area. I found the product in a lonely corner of the store, and it took a few circles of the entire store for me to find it. I took it to checkout, and it was on sale as it was advertised on the website. I bought it, and I've been using it since. I adore this mouse, and I can't say anything bad about it, with all the programmable buttons, smooth tracking, adjustable dpi/cpi and stuff like that. This is the first gaming mouse I have owned, and I'm definitely not disappointed. The only con I found when buying this product was the customer service at best buy, it definitely wasn't great, they didn't even say anything about how I got a good deal, most were frowning and unfriendly, and the checkout person wasn't very nice, and all she did was make me buy something and let me go. Bad customer service, but this product makes up for it. Kudos to Razer for such a great product :)

Best Gaming Mouse I've Used

This mouse has everything a core gamer needs: Up to 6,400 DPI, fully adjustable Two extra hyper responsive thumb buttons Lit scrollwheel (on or Razer green) with ridges so you know when you scroll Fully functional with Razer Synapse 2.0, customize DPI, button mapping, and link programs (and games) Braided cable (best kind there is) Gold plated USB Nice breathing Razer green logo Shaped for right handed Extra slippy mouse feet Extra grippy rubber sides All in all, the best mouse an entry level game needs. 420/69

smooth death

i've always seen razor products in store + wanted to try one out; so when bestbuy had a sale recently, i finally picked one up. first impression: this mouse is smooth...in look, feel + performance. it functions well + the added glowing symbol + scroll wheel make it a wicked product to own.

Great Mouse! Great Price! Definitely will Last

I've just received my mouse and so far out of all the previous mouses i've ever used this is by far the lightest and most responsive mouse that i have ever seen. For the price at first glance it's rather expensive but this is a mouse that will definitely last for years to come, definitely worth the purchase. One more addition is that wired mouses do not have to be charged! If you get a wireless mouse you might not have any dislikes about charging it every few days but that battery will die and it will require that you charge it every other day (just a FYI and heads up!). This mouse is great is so freaking light it's crazy.

Great and reliable mouse for a good price

I have owned my deathadder for 2 years now and I personally love it. The ergnomics on it are great and the mouse is also accurate and it also looks great alongside my deathstalker too!

Very Pleased

This is an excellent all around gaming mouse. It's lightweight, comfortable and very smooth on any surface. Razer Synapse 2.0 software is excellent and easy to configure. The only complaint that I have really is that it would be nice to have a dedicated button for switching DPI settings.

A Mouse Instilled with Awesome

Since getting myself my super sweet Alienware x14, my PC gaming horizons expanded. But with better framerates and bigger worlds came a demand for better handling - my old mouse just was not going to cut it any long. I, of course, knew of Razer and the tech they were capable of producing, but was never certain if it was for me, if perhaps their accessories were too 'hardcore' for me. Still, I could not deny the appeal and that they just plain looked nice. All the reviews backed up the company's capabilities, so around Christmas I decided to treat myself. I waltzed into the store with a single product in mind: a Razer DeathAdder. And get it I did. The entire drive about that day, fraught with insane Boxing Day traffic, left me wanting only for my laptop and the desire to test out this badboy sitting in the seat next to me. It was not long before I got it home, unpacked it, and commenced the installation process. Really simple, straightforward setup processes were easily navigated, and before long I was ready to go. Fresh out the box, with doing nothing, the DeathAdder handled like a dream as I took it through the paces in some FPS action. It is light, incredibly responsive, and makes you feel, oh what's the word...? Badass! I never thought a mouse could infuse such mochismo into me, but this little device did the job. The DeathAdder is a slick looking piece of tech, with nice contours, pleasing green light pouring from beneath it, the logo and mouse wheel themselves. A nice long chord means that you can get some distance from you and your screen if, like me, you play on a 50-inch TV now and again. Also, like I said, it's light, but also feels solid, sturdy. After my initial game time, I looked into the customization options, setting up the additional mouse buttons for quick action in a few different games. These presets come in incredibly handy in any game setting, are easy to switch between, and super comprehensive in their setup. All in all, I am a proud and happy initiate to the Cult of Razer. The DeathAdder has yet to disappoint, and I doubt it ever will. It will likely outlast me and be passed down through generations like some coveted family heirloom. ... I may exaggerate, but definitely a worthwhile investment. Thanks for the good times to come, Razer.

Not very Ergonomic

This mouse might be fine for somebody with a palm grip, but I like to move my mouse and keep my wrist stationary, which is not possible with this mouse because the slanted back pushes into my palm and pinches my skin, and makes my hand sweat. I also have a R.A.T 7 and find it much more ergonomic and it is more adjustable. Also this deathadder is optical, and laser is better. Just beware this old style wedge shaped back that is not very ergonomic, but Razer seems to not be giving up. The best part about this mouse is the 2 button on the side are in great positions, and are easy to press.

Great For Gaming

I recently purchased a new gaming pc and i needed a new gaming mouse. It was a no brainer for me to buy a razer mouse and i cant be happier. The mouse performance better than i expected and it is well worth the price. By Gamers For Gamers.

Fantastic for casual use or games

I have small hands but the mouse is still very comfortable. I love the fact I can customize the mouse with their synapse program. The green glow is really neat. The mouse is very sensitive and 6400 dpi is nuts, but it'll probably be good for certain games or people. I personally think the mouse is fantastic and worth every cent. Very impressive and I love the size of the mouse despite my hand size. The side buttons are one of the best features.

-It is very large and not made for small hands. -The 1st button on the left side is innacessible without moving your postionning on the mouse. -The freen razer sign keeps going on and off it's very annoying. -Has mouse acceleration that you can't control. -Not very precise.

Absolutely delightful

So i had bought a new computer, and the mouse it came with was probably the most foul mouse i have ever used. So i headed down to best buy. I have heard nothing but amazing about razer products from all my friends who are pretty fully equipped with Razor. So i had bought this little beast of a mouse, and must say am thoroughly satisfied!. it perfectly fits my hand, bottons are all well designed and the scroll wheel just feels right! Thanks for saving me from my previous disaster of a mouse!

Great for a first time gaming mouse.

Let me start of this review by saying how much i love this mouse. This mouse is the most beautiful thing i have ever seen and held. It is insane how well the mouse fits and feels is your hand. It is crazy how well it fits. It has perfect contours and ergonomics into the design of this mouse that fits amazingly into anybodys hand. Also it looks crazy cool with the lights on the logo and the scroll wheel. And when you install razer synapse 2.0 you can customize what the side buttons do. I was really surprised with that. And you can customize the sensitivity on it also. It has some upgrades from the 2012 edition of it like on the side of it, it has has grips so you can grip that instead of having your fingers drag while you play. And i definitely recommend buying this mouse if you are looking for a gaming mouse that look's cool,feels great and is pretty good on price compared to other mouses.

Great mouse

This was the first gaming mouse I have ever purchased and in comparison, it's simply amazing. Definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to move from their standard mouse to a gaming one. The only thing stopping me from giving this a 5/5 would be that it occasionally started jumping around when I first started using it, even after calibrating it a few times, though that may of been a personal mistake.

I've been using those generic mice for such a long time now that at the first contact with the Razer DeathAdder I remembered what is having a good mouse. Feels great in the hand and works perfectly. Definitely worth buying.
