Razer DeathAdder Optical Gaming Mouse

  • Model #: DeathAdder 2013
  • Web Code: 10239724


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.

Nearly perfect

This mouse does everything that I want it to with precision. The cording and the wheel are well made. The one thing that I would change is its weight. I would like it to be heavier. That is personal preference. Otherwise a great mouse.

Razers never let me down

Just picked up this mouse a few days ago and I already love the look, feel and movement. It has a very sleek and smooth look and finish that makes it smooth to touch along with a slick ergonomic design that makes it comfortable to use. Very great value for the priced for a great product from a trusted brand.

  • from Calgary

Great Value

Just picked up this mouse yesterday and I already love it. It has a very sleek and pleasant look to it and its quite ergonomically pleasing and smooth as well.

  • from Spruce Grove, AB

Moved on from Logitech

I had a Logitech G302 that started to double click(the left click and hold stopped working and would just click and unclick). I had alot of trouble with their tech support and decided to just buy a new mouse all together. I purchased this mouse and instantly fell in love with it. The feel and the layout was much better. Very smooth and more customization.

  • from Canada

This is a great product

I have had this mouse for 5 years now and i have put lots of use into it and i still have an amazing responsive device well done to razer on quality design

QUESTION: is it compatible with razer synapse

Best gaming mouse for the price

This is a fantastic mouse for the price I love every single part of it. I recommend it to everyone to buy.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Double click

I went through 2 of these, both times after awhile 1-4 months, a single left click would double click. Very annoying for gaming. Felt good at first, then you can start to notice the feel of the left button. Downloaded synapse from Razer and that did not help. Would not buy again.

  • from Etobicoke

Good Sensitivity and Precision

I have had this mouse for about 2 months now and it has not failed it. It is very accurate and fast. looks slick and comfortable for the hand!

  • from Saint-eustache, QC

Best precision/price ratio

I've had 3 gaming mice for the last 10 years because I choose them carefully and the Razer DeathAdder is my third and fourth mouse. This is the best mouse for its price and is actually better than most of the high end and more expensive mouse out there. I still have the old DeathAdder but I've just heard about the new 4G sensor today (didn't really care before since the old generation is still pretty good). It's really comfortable and precise. I do recommend

  • from Waterloo, ON


This mouse is everything i expected it to be and more, incredibly smooth movement, start and stops. good build and material quality, and the weight feels good for me, works very well with the synapse 2.0 program!(the macros and bind able buttons)

  • from canada


it is amazing. the razer ecosystem is great.

  • from Kelowna, BC

Great performance, terrible durability

Bought first deathadder last year and loved it. Started to double click/fail to hold a click after ~6 mo and limped along for another 3 mo w/ cleaning. Bought a second figuring it was just a random defect, but am having the same problem after roughly 7 months. Also had a razer headset that was junk. Won't buy more.

  • from Calgary, AB

The best mouse that i have by far.

Highly recommended. Is the most comfortable and precise mouse that i had ever. Razer is a pretty good options for sure.

Razer DeathAdder Optical Gaming mouse

Highly recommended mouse. Ergonomic and very precise to shooter games. Best mouse that I had for sure.

  • from Toronto, ON

Best Gaming mouse

This mouse is the best mouse i ever had, has a fully ergonomic structure, has a lot of "G" thing on his sensor, so i can use very low sense overall its a awesome mouse.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Didn't work properly.

Didn't work half of the time! I ended up returning it a week later.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Very impressed with this mouse

With razer synapse you are able to customize this mouse to your liking highly recommend this mouse

  • from Mountain View, AB

Top Notch!

I've used a lot of gaming mice before and this one takes the cake with it's simplicity and balance.

  • from Montréal, QC

Best gaming mouse

This is the best mouse I ever bought in my life. The comfort pad is great and the lights are beautiful.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Razer Death Adder

My Octane gaming mouse broke after about a yea of having it, so I decided to try something new. Upon unboxing the Death Adder, I immediately noticed the decent weight and comfortable grip of it. I was also quite relieved to discover that it had the 3rd and 4th buttons on the side, such as my Octane did. I found they can prove to be quite useful. So far I am satisfied with the appearance and performance of this mouse.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Great mouse

Got my DeathAdder recently and I find no problem that tarnishes the reputation of this incredible item! Besides the awesome looks and ergonomic design, its DPI range is much higher than the necessary for a great gaming experience, but when you get used to it and learn how to control this beast... Once you go Razer you never go back.

  • from Montréal, QC

Poor construction quality - not built to last

I hate/love the Deathadder mice. On one hand, the ergonomics are great - the mouse is comfortable to use for hours on end, the button placement is just right, it simply looks and feels great. On the other hand, the build quality on these things is terrible and I guarantee most people will have at least one button malfunctioning or breaking within 1-2 years of regular use (if not sooner). I got this mouse after my Deathadder 3500's middle mouse button stopped working and a side button broke within a year and a half. The Deathadder 2013 worked great for nearly 2 years, up until the left mouse button broke. After opening up both my Deathadders, I wasn't surprised why they're reported with such a high failure rate; the plastic used for the triggers that hold/push the buttons is especially cheap and flimsy. If Razer placed a fraction of the effort and resources they use for their marketing into the build quality of their products, then we would have nice things.

  • from Fredericton, NB

Made me smile

I'm in the hospital currently with plenty of people wondering what's going on. Sob story? NAH. My homie brought my in this RAZOR DEATHADDER mouse as a gift for my laptop, so I didn't have to Netflix and chill with myself every night. HOT DAYUM, this thing is rock solid my friends! Gaming is now a breeze, nothing in my life has worked so simply, not even my own body. I love this mouse. I'm pretty sure it's begun to cure all of my imperfections you guys... Razor is God. Praise be. Now I can go home and plug this bad boy into my real Gaming Tower! So stoked!

  • from Toronto, ON

Very smooth mouse

I'm impressed!

  • from Gatineau, QC

Best mouse ever

I just purchased this mouse, from all the mouses that I bought in the pass (which is a lot) this is the best mouse ever. Great look! Great feel! Excellent quality! Love Razer products!!!

  • from Ste-Catherine, QC

really good mouse!

This mouse is really good in all the point and it's also really comfortable and pleasing to handle. I would recommend this mouse for any type of gamer either if you are a casual gamer or full hardcore try-hard gamer. I only enjoyed my experience so far and if my mouse broke I would probably buy another one just like that one.

  • from Edmonton, AB

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!

  • from North Vancouver, BC

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.

  • from Edmonton, AB


Great mouse for the price, feels good, and the green glow looks awesome too!

  • from Dorval, Qc

My 2nd one

I've tried many mice and this is by bar THE BEST mouse on the market. Lightweight, perfect for gaming, great customer service.

  • from Coquitlam, BC

Pretty good

feels really nice

  • from Estevan, SK

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.

  • from Surrey, BC

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.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Nice texture and very responsive

Very responsive mouse and it lasted for a long time, amazing quality and it feels great on the hand.

  • from Ottawa, ON

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.

  • from Montreal, Qc

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!

  • from Calgary, AB

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.

  • from Calgary, AB

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.

  • from Ajax, ON


I have used all kinds of mice over the years. This one blows all away !! The size is comfortable, reaction times swift and the colour scheme is fantastic! Highly recommended for games !! :-)

Very Good Mouse

  • from Ottawa, ON

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.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

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!

  • from Lethbridge, AB

works great

had the mouse for about 2 years and the scroll wheel broke.
