To start, I know what you must be thinking, First Impressions for a Mouse? Well, I do first impressions because I really want to provide our readers with the full experience. Yeah, I may like a product after first usage, but who knows, after a week or so I may realize that I really hate it. I would rather write a first impression, and a final and full review, rather then provide inaccurate information. Now, back to the Razer Deathadder. If youve read my review on the Samsung QX401, then you probably already know that I did not like the trackpad. So I decided to purchase a mouse. My first thoughts were to get the Logitech MX performance, however, my friend already owned that mouse and I thought Id give something else a try. All of the forums pointed me to the brand Razer. So, I did some Bing searches and found that the Deathadder, while one of the more affordable, was one of the more favoritedВ of the bunch. So I bought it through Amazon and in 2 days flat, (I love Amazon Prime) IВ receivedВ my mouse. So after 2 days of using it, how do I like it you ask?
Design and Build
Its strange, the mouse itself В is pretty plain, but at the same time it has two blue glows on it, which В makes the mouse veryВ desirable. The mouses build is very durable with no loose edges. The scroll wheel feels very tight, which is a good thing. It has your standard right and left click and two otherВ programmableВ buttons. I love that Razer made the cord a durable shoe lace like material and design. It feels very rugged and I dont see it falling apart anytime soon.
I think that comfort is an extremely important factor. Or else I would just be using my laptops trackpad. The Deathadders comfort is fantastic. My hand and fingers just lay on the mouse nicely. I owned the Apple Magic Mouse before this, and while it did serve its time well, I never really liked , or got used to the fact, that it was extremely flat. With the deathadder, its nice curve just made using a mouse a breeze.
What good would a mouse be if it didnt work properly. I know, I am once again comparing this mouse to apples, but I can easily say that this mouse is the winner when it comes to responsiveness. I DONT play too many video games, but even using this mouse for my every day task, Ive notice just how responsive this mouse is from pointing to one side of the screen to the next, as well as simply clicking. I would even go as far to say that, while it doesnt have any many features, it betters the Logitech MX performance mouse when it comes to its responsiveness.
All in All
I think that this mouse will be a desk companion with me for a while. Its design is nice and simple, it has blue glowing lights, (YES!) very comfortable and it is extremely responsive. Ive said it before but Ill say it again, it does its job RIGHT!
Stay tuned for my full review of this mouse soon. Thanks for reading!
