Comments / reviews:
I'm not particularly a huge fan of Razer as most of their products are over priced and they have a tendency to create flashy products while skimping out on build quality, however their mice have always been well made. Before I purchased this mouse I was using a Razer Lachesis (the original model not the second version). I actually still use that mouse with my laptop since I can't stand trackpads, but this DeathAdder Chroma I now use with my desktop. It has a great grip and a great feel to it thanks to the rubber on the sides as well as the weight. It's not light but it certainly isn't heavy. It feels just right.

The millions of colors that is is capable of displaying is completely pointless, but I do admit it looks pretty cool and the colors can be customized via Razer Synapse software.

I won't make any bold claims about this mouse improving my gaming performance as I've been gaming and using gaming mice my whole life so transitioning from one to another isn't going to do anything for me. I play mostly FPS games and RPGs and this mouse has been excellent for me. It's very comfortable and the sensor is very accurate. I sometimes, well very rarely I should say, had an issue with the sensor on my Lachesis but I've owned this mouse for over a year and I've yet to experience any sensor issues.

One thing I should point out is that right after Amazon's return policy expired, I began having a double click issue with this mouse. Sometimes when I would left click, it would register twice. This was extremely annoying. I would shoot more times than I would have to in shooters and when I would click to select a file, it would double click and open it instead. I was so disappointed that I spent so much money on a brand new mouse, the return policy was over, and I'd probably have to contact the manufacturer and get a refurbished one as a replacement.

I contacted Razer and they replied within 24 hours. I already told them I tried uninstalling and re-installing the software as well as testing the mouse on different computers. The customer support person asked me to try updating the device's firmware and linked me to it. Lo and behold, this simple firmware update fixed my issue. It was a huge relief to find out that it wasn't a hardware issue or a manufacturing one.

Lastly, I do dislike the Razer Synapse software (and unfortunately you're forced to use it to keep the device updated and I had to use it to update the firmware) but I've learned to deal with it. Aside from popping up letting you know that there is an update available, it isn't obtrusive. At least it gives you the option to create custom profiles per application which is nice.

OK so in the last 30 days, I have tested MANY mice, in an attempt to find the perfect mouse. I even went as far as to track accuracy %'s per mouse in UT2004. I tested the Final mouse, Logitech G502 proteus core, Razer Deathadder Chroma, Roccat Tyon, Zowie Fk1, and the Razer ouroboros. I have probably used another 20-30 mice in the last few years, but not in the last 30 days. One thing I have learned is optical is far superior to laser, so the majority of the mice above use optical sensors.

To give you some insight, I am a low sense gamer, usually run my mice at 1600dpi, and ingame sensitivity quite low. it takes me about 1.5 mouse pads to do a 360 in game.

So how does the death adder chroma stack up? I would say its in third place, trailed by the finalmouse but really close. The G502 is perfection IMO.

The Razer does a lot right and wrong. I remember years ago when the first deathadder first came out, i played the crap out of some FPS with that mouse, and over the years, a lot of mice have come out, and although I still believe the new chroma is a good choice there are better options out there.

Right:
Great tracking, just lags slightly behind the G502 and Final mouse
good feel and the new LED setup is really cool looking
buttons are solid, and i like the teflon feat setup

Wrong:
doesnt track as good as the G502 or final mouse
doesnt feel as high quality as the G502, but materials are better than the finalmouse

Best gaming mouse razer has to offer for sure. Just wish it could dethrone the G502, but it just cannot.

I have used this mouse for a few years now and am very satisfied.

The cord on this mouse is long so you should not have to worry about it being too short for normal use, but it is not detachable from the mouse which is a small downside.

I upgraded to this mouse because my original mouse began to have problems with the left click button. I play league of legends and other video games regularly and this mouse has stood the test of time. There have been no problems with the left or right click wearing out. The mouse is also pretty comfortable in your hand but it is slightly on the larger side. If you have small hands you may have some issues/comfortability problems with this mouse.

This mouse is used with a razer mouse mat but I have also used it on many surfaces including the sheets on my bed. As long as the surface is relatively flat and smooth the mouse performs well.

I have not used the two buttons on the inside of the mouse mostly due to the fact that I don't need them but also because my hands aren't very big making it difficult to reach the buttons.

I would definitely recommend this mouse just be wary if you have small hands.

This mouse is amazing. Simply put, it does everything you could want in a mouse, but it does it well, and with style.

I'm an avid gamer, and Razer loves to cater to gamers, so you'll find that they put a lot of thought behind their products. The DeathAdder Chroma is no exception. Along with the mouse comes the Razer Synapse program, which allows you to tweak the settings of your mouse. You can create macros, assign keybinds, change the colors of the scroll-wheel and the logo independently, and increase or decrease the sensitivity of your mouse. Even better, it allows you to save a profile with your settings, and quickly change from one to the other. If you prefer a higher sensitivity for one game, and a lower sensitivity for another, you can set it to automatically switch profiles as soon as you start a specific game. This means you have optimal performance without having to worry about changing the profile on your own. The sensitivity ranges from 100 to 10,000 DPI, and you can also change the acceleration (or turn it off completely) and the polling rate

The mouse itself is comfortable in the hand (I have somewhat larger hands than many, but it is still comfortable in smaller hands as well), and the buttons have a nice solid click, so you know when you've pressed it down. The two thumb buttons are well-placed and large enough that you don't have to feel around for them, allowing you to quickly melee or toss a grenade without fumbling about. The mouse does not stick when moving it around, and works wonderfully on a solid mousepad. It doesn't work well on glass, but is great on wood. The cord is wrapped in a braided material, which gives it a little bit of a sturdy feel. I have been using it for over a year now, and it's still just as responsive as the day I bought it, and has never had any issues. No missed clicks, no faulty movements, everything perfect, precise, and just how I like it. With 40 color options to choose from, as well as static, breathing, or spectrum coloring, you can customize it to fit your preferred look.

So this is my first gaming mouse, so I'll write this to help others looking to pick up their first dedicated gaming mouse. The mouse feels great in my hand, and is very comfortable to use for long a duration of time for somebody like me with larger hands. I primarily play FPS games and MOBAs, so I don't need a ton of extra buttons for a variety of macros and the few extra on this are perfect. Basically I map one to "push to talk" and the other to melee or another type selection which is enough. When I plugged the mouse in for the fist time, my computer automatically recognized it and installed the Razer software needed to configure the device. The menus within the software are easy enough to navigate around pretty instinctively.

My only gripe with this (and reason it isn't a 5 start product) is the mouse has these rubber grip areas on each side which are nice. However, my right grip is slightly off position from where it should be and as such there is a tiny section that isn't flush like the left side. I didn't think this was a big deal at first, but after hours of use the only thing I can compare it to is when you have a popcorn kernel stuck between your teeth. Sure it isn't killing you and isn't a huge deal, but after feeling it there for an hour you will start to go nuts. I'm also worried that because it isn't flush, that it will eventually start to peel off after usage. If that does happen I will update my review, but as of now I'm living with it because the rest of the product is great.

Got this with the Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 for Overwatch, CS:GO and others. Construction is really premium. The braided cord is a nice touch and really long to boot. Doesn't get caught on edges as you're tracking.

I'm running Windows 10 and as all as I plugged the mouse and keyboard into the hub, the Razer Chroma software wanted to install. Really easy process. Once it was up I went into the menus and started customizing both. For the mouse sensitivity, I kept acceleration off and played with the dpi setting to get the speed and precision I wanted. As simple as alt tabbing back and forth or just getting feedback in the Windows UI. Found 2000 to be the sweet spot for me. Calibration was simple once my new mouse pad settled. I have great area coverage and high precision during micro movements. It really does make a difference in shooters. I can't state that enough.

My only gripes are with the two side buttons and and the weight of the mouse. If it were heavier or had optional weights I'd have given it 5 stars. The weight and the claw grip combine to make the side buttons feel less than optimally positioned.

Love this mouse! I bought both Logitech G502 Proteus Core and Razer DA Chroma to try out. The look of the G502 was awesome and it had weights for fine tuning. This biggest drawback on the G502 was the scroll wheel. It felt less responsive in terms of tactical responsiveness compared to the Razer DA Chroma.
I ended up sending the G502 back and kept the RDAC and absolutely love how responsive it is. The scroll wheel is amazing, and I use the mouse primarily for AutoCAD and 3-D software, where I NEED precision. I'll give it a go on gaming soon, but really like this mouse. Hope you like it as much as I do! It's used on my iMac platform and Windows 7 (Parallels software).

Cheers!

Until this mouse I've only ever owned cheap 8$ mice. Which aren't bad until you curse yourself once you get your hands on this one. Razer did a great job with the ergonomic design of the mouse it feels amazing in the hand. This has actually improved my in game performance because I'm not trying to re adjust my hand on the mouse......ah god those were dark times. Honestly a bad mouse is like tossing and turning at night trying to find the cool side of the pillow. Anyway I like that it works for both palm and claw grip although I prefer palm. The side keys are easy to press but not enough to do so accidentally which I dealt with on other mice. Both sides of the mouse feature rubberized grip for your thumb and finger that are on the side of the mouse. The grip does not slip when you hands get sweaty which is a big plus for me.

The diver installs automatically and is easy to update. The driver itself is easy to navigate and has a very pleasing user interface (thank god for small miracles) in the driver you can change the colors of both the scroll wheel and logo LEDs as well as make profiles and change dpi and what not. The mouse also has a braided cable that's nice and thin and a gold platted connector (again, thank god for small miracles).

My only complaint is that I wish the mouse had the grip towards the back were your palm rests because if feels like your hand wants to slide of a bit. ( not as bad when doing claw grip)

Don't wait to buy this mouse.

I'm an avid Battlefield 3/4, DoTA2 and Starcraft 2 player.... if you know what those games are, you know that means I play competitively. Having a competitive edge, even a small one, makes a big difference. I'm ecstatic to say that I feel the DeathAdder has given me a big one.

My basic PC setup is as good as it gets, but I've been using a default basic mouse and mousepad for the longest time. I heard talk in the gaming community about Razer devices, so I decided to look into it. Seeing the 2,000+ high ratings on the DeathAdder sealed the deal for me, so I gave it a go.

After the mouse arrived, it took my hand a while to adjust. The mouse is very long and I'm a "claw" gripper, but after getting used to it, I can say this mouse is very comfortable and relaxing to use and I feel has helped me go beyond my limitations. I would say I have a normal sized hand. If you're not already aware, this mouse is used greatly be strategy gamers (DoTA2 and Starcraft 2 players), but I haven't heard much about it in the FPS realm. Well, this mouse is just as excellent in FPS games as it is in strategy games.

To get extra-nerdy on you, I'm a rushing, bolt-action sniper in Battlefield, so making shots connect is important. I have a great deal of control when taking shots and I feel more accurate now. Controlling "weapon recoil" with fully-automatic weapons feels easier and more precise now too. I use 2400 DPI with 1 point of acceleration and very low sensitivity in-game (DPI is adjustable in the Razer Software). The general consensus among the FPS community is to use a low DPI (400) to be more accurate and turn on "raw input", in other words, turning mouse acceleration off. I can tell you this was a bust for me. Without trying to go too deep into it, lower DPI means (less points on the screen), and depending on your field-of-view and screen resolution, that can cause problems with a low DPI. I used acceleration before my Razer, and I use acceleration now, and I'm fine with it. This all depends on how you play. I'm a high sensitivity gamer, and I don't like moving my hand, arm and whatever else to my mouse around. I use gentle strokes and that's all I need. This might not make sense to someone who has never changed DPI settings before, but once you buy the mouse and tweak it, this review might come in handy. I'm sharing this for you.

To sum up, I can't believe I didn't order this mouse ages ago. It really has been like a missing piece to my gaming puzzle and has made me better than I was before, albeit, doing it "comfortably". I have had no issues with drivers or the software, and the mouse feels of good quality. Highly recommend.

Oh and btw, I bought this mouse in conjunction with a "Razer Goliathus Control" mousepad. And it works perfectly with the mouse. As a matter of fact, in the Razer Software you can calibrate your mouse to your mousepad, and if you have Razer mousepad, you can choose from a menu which one you are using. Turning the calibration on and off makes a noticeable difference. The calibration gives you more control.

EDIT: A little over 1 year later, I've burned through one of these in about 6 months. The mouse truly is a delight to use AND has made me better, but the shelf-life is pretty low. I had a problem with "double clicking" when I would do a single click (something other reviews are keen to point out). The only choice was to either A) contact Razer and replace the mouse and return the old-one free of charge or B) fix it myself. After looking up videos online, I decided I didn't want to void the warranty by doing my own repair and making things worse, so I got a new one. Getting a new mouse was a relatively easy process since I RMA'ed through Amazon and used Amazon Prime to get a new one with free 2 day shipping.

Would I continue using this mouse after my issue, even with it being a repeat issue for others? Yes. When it does work it is excellent to use and is very comfortable, and because Razer is willing to replace it when it malfunctions, it is a hassle I'm willing to deal with. 4.5/5 stars

This is my second deathadder mouse from razer. The first one developed a hyper-sensitive left button which I fixed with a wadded up piece of papper. (not before trashing one of the feet disassembling it) It still served me well for 3 or 4 years. I finally decided to replace it, as the drag from the missing foot was becoming annoying.

pros
The chroma adds the ability to change led color which is a nice bonus. The precision of this model is on par with the old one, which is excellent. The rubber pads on the side are a nice addition as well. Razer synapse is easy to use and pleasant as well.

cons
The overall build quality seems a little lower than my old one. It seems lighter and more hollow. The mouse wheel has a clacking sound when scrolling up. This reverberates in the body of the mouse and just makes it seem cheap. I can also feel whatever makes the sound through the wheel as it spins. (probably a piece of plastic that gives the wheel individual clicks) Scrolling down behaves as expected.

Even with the cons it comes through where it counts. It is accurate and smooth with a good sensor. And that's the most important thing to have in a mouse. I would recommend it.
