Razer’s gaming products are one of the most iconic peripherals of the last decade. For a lot of people, gaming products are synonymous with products made by Razer.
The DeathAdder Chroma is still a relatively small mouse with padded contours for the thumb and two outermost fingers. It’s an extremely comfortable mouse, although it forgoes a proper thumb rest to achieve its small size. The DeathAdder Chroma’s performance in games as expected is top notch and handles extremely well in performing precise and quick movements. On the box, Razer makes a minimalistic presentation combining a black background and a mouse image. The quality of the printing is of very good quality. While the back side we have a breakdown of all the features in several languages and the recommendation of professional players iNcontrolL and KennyS.
The Razer Deathadder Chroma has dimensions of 127 x 70 x 44 mm (Length x Width x Height) and an approximate weight of 105 grams. With an ambidextrous asymmetric design, it will adapt to both right-handed and left-handed users. The surface of the mouse is made of rugged plastic material while the sides are glued to provide a better grip during use. However, in our experience, the mouse seems to have an ergonomic design for right handers so if you’re left handed this mouse will definitely feel quite awkward in your hand.
The Chroma is equipped with a 10,000dpi optical sensor, capable of mouse movement speeds of up to 300 inches per second and 50g acceleration. The 10,000 DPI optical sensor makes a major difference from past mice you could have used in that the mouse cursor or crosshair never deviated from the intended location.
The added precision with the extreme DPI ensured in strategy games that clicking on specific units or highlighting a selection of troops was always an effortless process. The games in which the mouse really shines are first-person shooters and other fast-paced titles that require quick reaction timing. The biggest feature of this mouse is definitely the sensor, which is absolutely flawless. There is zero positive or negative acceleration at any dpi and it managed to track accurately at any speed. The tracking is absolutely perfect. It’s also very lightweight, feeling almost like a toy when you pick it up. But where most such mice —even most Razer mice—aim for subtlety, the DeathAdder makes everything as big and obvious as possible. At $70, the DeathAdder is the cheapest mouse in the Chroma line, and one of the cheapest in Razer’s line-up. The added side grips and matte surface of the mouse aid in providing an ideal experience for both gaming and daily desktop use. Razer advertises that the DeathAdder Chroma offers a choice of a “full spectrum” of colors, which usually means somewhere in the neighborhood of 16.8 million choices. While many of these colors won’t look too different in practice, you can still get a pretty decent blue, pink, red, green or any other color that your heart desires.
The mouse offers a lot of functionality for an unassuming mouse, and you can control it all through the Razer Synapse 2.0 software. You can adjust the dots-per-inch (DPI) sensitivity to between 200 and 10,000 using the synapse software. You can also adjust the polling rate (how frequently the computer communicates with the mouse), tune the mouse for the surface underneath it and tweak a few other technical settings. If you utilize a claw grip, then this mouse may not be the one for you, as it is quite large and heavy (when compared to other products in the same category) which will hamper the ease with which you can move the mouse with your fingertips. That said, the coating is non slip and the textured rubber on the sides provides quite a firm hold once you wear it in and it warms up a bit.
The DeathAdder Chroma from Razer is an easy recommendation for gamers in the market for a new mouse as it performs excellent in nearly every gameplay genre and scenario. The Razer Deathadder Chroma is one of the best wired mice on the market. It’s excellent features play in another league with a RGB lighting system of 16 million colors and a 5G laser sensor of 10,000 dpi which makes it very suitable for users who use several screens and want to move the cursor along them without a large Movement of the mouse. Simply said, this product blows the competition away.
Our experience of use has been very satisfactory, the main and lateral buttons have a very precise and pleasant response and the wheel travel is quite good although I think it is the most improved aspect of this mouse as its strength could be a little Best in a mouse with its price.
In short, this is one of the best cable mice on the market, with features that will satisfy both the most demanding gamers and users looking for a mouse with excellent performance for each day’s work.
