Razer first released the Deathadder mouse back in 2006, I remember wanting to own one badly as anyone who was anyone owned one back then. Since then there have been multiple versions, multiple reskins, and even some Special Editions. So it doesn’t make sense that Razer calls this the v2 then right?
Or so they’d have you believe….
This is the first TRUE Successor to the original Deathadder, 14 years later.
The shape has been around since 2006 and is perfect for larger and medium-sized hands for nearly any type of grip. The classic DeathAdder shape has been adopted into Esports and Competitive play.
The Razer DeathAdder V2 continues this legacy, retaining its signature shape while shedding more weight for quicker handling to improve your gameplay. Going beyond conventional office ergonomics, the optimized design also provides greater comfort for gaming important for those long raids or when you’re grinding your rank on ladder.
It also uses an Optical Mouse Switch Utilizing an infrared light beam to register every click, the switches in this ergonomic mouse actuate with an industry-leading response time of 0.2 milliseconds. Because it no longer requires traditional physical contact, this form of actuation removes the need for debounce delay and never triggers unintended clicks, giving you closer control and flawless execution.
It also uses an optical sensor which has been upgraded the new improved sensor has an industry-leading 20,000 DPI with 99.6% resolution accuracy, ensuring that even the finest movement from this ergonomic mouse is tracked with consistency. Equipped with intelligent functions, the sensor becomes even more accurate, allowing for an acute level of precision for game-winning headshots.
Both the updated Mouse switch and Optical sensor are coupled with the Razer Speedflex cable, The Razer DeathAdder V2’s cable has greater flexibility and is designed to produce minimal drag so that you can perform quicker, more fluid swipes for a higher degree of control.
All of this combined makes for one perfect esports mouse.
The Deathadder v2 is an improvement over the Elite in almost every single way so overall I love this mouse I cannot see myself switching to anything else any time soon. It’s got all of the features you would want, it’s lightweight and it feels great in the hand.
