What customers say about "Key Specs"
Razer Deathadder Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • I purchased this mouse to replace an older DeathAdder, and the DPI buttons are fantastic. It's easier to change the sensitivity on the fly in games like Overwatch.
  • Its a really great mouse. the wide range of DPI enables me to choose from different sensitivity settings
  • I especially love how I'm able to decrease or increase the dpi on the fly at the touch of a button and how I can customize any button on the mouse.
  • This is the best mouse for gaming and everyday use. The optical sensor is fast and accurate. I love that Razer adding the DPI sensitivity buttons just below the scroll wheel.
  • Still have calibration bug (i have calibration but after restart high lod. Alltime need recalibrate after restart) and ugly dpi buttons. Pros never change dpi in game.
  • The mouse is okay. Nice shape over all. My issue was that 800 dpi on this mouse did not feel the same. It was way faster than other mice. Be careful.
Razer Mamba Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • The optical sensor is much better than the laser one used in the wireless 2016 edition which i own.
  • As can be expected from Razer the optical sensor is perfect and the buttons have a nice tactile feel.
  • Smooth and accurate tracking
  • Excellent but of tech this, works flawlessly and very precise, the mouse offers exceptional control and despite being light provides superb precision’s from its optical sensor.
  • The sensor is also very nice and precise. As for build quality, I found it to be good but not the best.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Razer Deathadder Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • Perfect size for anyone with medium size hands, quick response time and very accurate for FPS.
  • Perfect size to fit bigger hands, ergonomic shape, grippy scroll wheel and mouse side's for sweaty nerd hands.
  • So this mouse is surprisingly massive but I like it the bigger size makes it less portable but it makes it more comfortable even with my fairly small hands
  • Perfect weight balance and great size fits my hand and I believe will fit any hand comfortably.
  • It takes a little getting used to because of the size but I really like
Razer Mamba Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • The side grips are twice the size in surface area with a textured surface.
  • I use this for gaming and it feels amazing in my hand as it is the perfect size for a palm grip.
  • The mouse feels nice in your hand - it's of average size and I think will suit male and females.
  • The mouse feels robust in the hand and is a good size for what I would describe as my 'average' sized hands.
  • The mouse fits a middle-sized male palm well - it could be a little large for a woman's hand.

What customers say about "Connection"
Razer Deathadder Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • Super comfortable mouse with a durable cloth covered cord.
  • Mouse is nice and smooth, comes with a good length usb cord
  • The cord is shockingly thin and flexible and doesn’t get hooked on anything.
  • The cord is tethered (like a shoelace) and fairly long and the mouse doesn't feel cheaply made or awkward or anything.
  • The cord ripped apart very easily, even with the extreme care I put into my electronics.
Razer Mamba Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • Not once has it had any problems with connection. It works by plugging in a USB dongle which when not in use is stored on the mouse underneath.
  • It’s lightweight, has very sensitive optics and connects to your PC via USB.
  • I am even yet unsure that a wireless gaming mouse is a good idea, given that lost connections are inevitable. It doesn't hurt to have the option though, if you can afford it.
  • It comes with an extension cable which can be used for charging the mouse or leaving it connected to use it wired .
  • Ok, so it’s good quality but the biggest and saddest letdown is how it doesn’t connect to my PC efficiently.

What customers say about "Features"
Razer Deathadder Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • The newer generations have a nice rubber siding that helps with grip while maintaining the great comfort of before.
  • The rubber on the sides helps with grip, the buttons are a definitive click, and the adjustable DPI setting is ridiculous and goes up to 15000.
  • Such s great looking mouse with perfect DPI buttons and extra programmable buttons on the left side.
  • Two programmable thumb buttons perfect for you league of legends players D/F. Can be set to super sensitive and paired with the mouse pad it's really precise.
  • This is my preferred mouse for playing anything other than MMOs. Excellent performance in FPS games and the RGB lighting has colors accurate to what you see in the software.
Razer Mamba Elite Esports Gaming Mouse
  • One thing I'd also like to mention is that the LED's are well implemented, bright and attractive in appearance even though I've never fell for the LED hype in gaming peripherals.
  • The RGB LED's on this mouse are much brighter and more vibrant with the colour saturation greatly improved.
  • Very bright and highly customisable RGB LED Lighting
  • Great companion software, best yet from Razer
  • Good battery life for a gaming mouse (best yet for Mambas)
