  1. Moises

    I am happy with this mouse – size, weight, shape all great. Side buttons are large and easy to use. Satisfying click sound deserves a separate mention. You don’t need to have razer software installed like many claim here, just cancel the installation once it popups and that’s it, it won’t popup again unless you unplug/plug the mouse. I have 3 razer devices plugged in all the time and I don’t have their software installed.

    UPDATE after 2 month of use: scroll wheel indeed glitches scrolling to opposite direction

    I LOVE this mouse. I got it after getting back into PC gaming after a hiatus.

    -Feels great in-hand.
    -Cable is plenty long.
    -It’s not heavy, but it has a decent weight to it.
    -Build quality is solid.

    -The only bad thing I have to say about this mouse is after a couple months of daily use, the scroll wheel sensors don’t function properly. After doing some research, it looks like dust builds up on the sensor, making the wheel “bounce” when scrolling.

    SIMPLE FIX: Blow into the space between the mouse and the scroll wheel. If you have pressurized air that will work much better. It’s only a temporary fix, and can get annoying, but it does fix the issue!

    Other than that one issue, this mouse is incredible for the price. Likely will upgrade to something a little more “pro” in the future, but for the last few months this has held up great, and I’ll likely use it for another 6+ months before upgrading.

    There are a lot of different gaming mice out there but a lot of gaming mice on the market in my opinion kind of just over do it. They are just way to expensive or have to many unneeded features (like 12+ buttons, covered in rainbow RGB lighting, wireless or have a super weird shape/feel)

    I just need a simple gaming mouse…

    I was at tech-school for my training in the Air force (I know, weirdest place out of anywhere) and I had my gaming laptop mailed to me so on my days off, I could play games with my sister & friends. For a long time I used a basic Dell computer-lab work mouse, and it gets the job done but I thought maybe it was time for a fun upgrade. There was a GameStop at a mall and there I bought a white colored Razer DeathAdder Essential Gaming Mouse. I’m going to tell you now… I immediately LOVED it! Perfect balance of a gaming mouse with some cool features but not overdoing it. Exactly as it says in the name… it’s the basic essentials for a gaming mouse! And for the price of $30? Not bad at all.

    The size, shape and feel is really good. not overdoing it in my opinion, giving a great ergonomic feeling when in use. The two extra side buttons are great and not overbearing (like with some mice and their 6+ extra buttons all over the mouse) two, in my opinion, are just enough. Lastly the fact that it’s wired is nice, helps with price & simplicity. It has some RGB lighting but not all over the place or crazy so no complaints for that.

    I rebought one but in the color black so it better matches my laptop and gave my sister the white colored one. Had the white one for almost a year and had ZERO issues or problems with it. If you want a simple, nice and cool gaming mouse that is just the ESSENTIALS this is for you!!!!

    bastante bueno y rápido en los clics para dibujar con mayor precisión, es cómodo, discreto y sencillo 🙂

  7. Luis Miguel

    Excelente, bastante flexível para manuseio, apesar de grande, o peso leve do mouse ajuda bastante e por alguns segundos, já se adapta. Tem se mostrado bastante eficiente até agora em jogos. Qualida razer, não há dúvidas!

  8. Elhan Martinovic

    The Razer gaming mouse is a true gem for avid gamers. Its ergonomic design ensures comfort during long gaming sessions, and the customizable RGB lighting adds a touch of personalization to the setup. The precision and responsiveness of the mouse are outstanding, providing a competitive edge in gaming scenarios.

    The programmable buttons offer versatility, allowing users to tailor the mouse to their gaming preferences. The build quality is robust, with durable materials that withstand the rigors of intense gaming. The smooth glide and accurate sensor contribute to a seamless gaming experience.

    Razer’s commitment to quality is evident in the attention to detail, from the tactile feel of the buttons to the reliable performance of the scroll wheel. The software integration enhances the overall user experience, enabling fine-tuning of settings.

    For gamers seeking a top-tier gaming mouse that combines style, functionality, and performance, the Razer gaming mouse stands out as a 5-star choice that delivers on all fronts.
