DeathAdder Elite


General Thoughts

The DeathAdder is one of the most popular mice of all time and it's still going strong, even though I released the review of it back in December 2016. It's a little heavy by new trends but still a loved and solid choice. Good shape, nice buttons and other features, all pretty solid. That said, while the sensor is still great, the button latency is using a higher debounce time to avoid double click issues, so while not a big deal, it is something to consider in this age of 4ms and 1ms mice. I would recommend taking a look at the Razer Mamba Elite and even the wireless version.
