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.
BenQ ZOWIE EC2-A Right Handed Gaming Mouse
  • The newer EC1/2-B features only very minor upgrades over the EC1/2-A, namely a newer sensor which has no discernible benefit other than for a tiny minority of people who suffer from the tilt-slam technique issue.
  • In conclusion I recommend this mouse highly. It is well built, comfortable, light and the sensor tracks beautifully and has a low lift off distance.
  • The sensor and buttons are great on my mouse, although like most, the side buttons are what you could call mushy.
  • The sensor is very good, the buttons feel somewhat mushy mostly on the side buttons but also on the mouses main left right click buttons but too a lesser degree which is not a good thing.
  • The sensor is one of the best out there that you can buy giving me excellent accuracy when gaming!

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
BenQ ZOWIE EC2-A Right Handed Gaming Mouse
  • Lightweight: EC1-A: 97g, EC2-A: 93g. Both are very light for their sizes, but by no means the lightest. (e.g. Finalmouse Ultralight Phantom/Pro)
  • However I find this slightly smaller size suits my claw grip better. The coating feels a little slippery at first but as soon as it warms it grips the hand nicely and is great for lifting.
  • Perfect ergonomic shape for 18cm sized hands
  • Nice size for me comfortable, mouse tracks well. Good piece of kit no regrets.
  • Great product good tracking nice small size fits hand well even though I have huge hands

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.
BenQ ZOWIE EC2-A Right Handed Gaming Mouse
  • Good cable: Non braided, quite flexible, and slides well, but not the best on the market. (e.g. Finalmouse Ultralight Phantom)
  • You might think the plastic cable is bad as its not braided but braided cables create drag.. I recommend pairing the mouse with a mouse bungee to avoid the cable breaking. ;)
  • The cable has a nice soft rubber coating which is more flexible than many of the braided cables I've used before.
  • Good shape, good cable, good sensor, plug and play.
  • The inner cable has become lose or some sort of breakage in the wire has happened meaning Windows momentarily disconnects and reconnects during any sort of movement.

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.
BenQ ZOWIE EC2-A Right Handed Gaming Mouse
  • However if I need to program the thumb buttons or scroll wheel click I use a free script app called X-Mouse which works perfectly.
  • Both mice feature the 3310 sensor, which is among the best on the market, but all top sensors are virtually indistinguishable from one another.
  • Plug and play: No software is needed, which is ideal for LAN environments.
  • LED light changes depending on what DPI you have it set to.
  • DPI button on back of mouse which is out of the way so no accidental clicks.
