    Razer, the world’s leading brand in high-end computer gaming peripherals, unleashes the Razer DeathAdder, an ergonomic right-handed gaming mouse with the world’s first 3G infrared sensor. The Razer DeathAdder boasts the groundbreaking 3G infrared sensor technology that ensures perfect control over the mouse in any gaming arena. The 1800 dots per inch (dpi) 3G infrared sensor when paired with 1000 Hz Ultrapolling and 1ms response provides pinpoint accuracy and lightning fast speed. To top it off, the Razer DeathAdder also possess zero-acoustic Ultraslick Teflon feet and award-winning On-the-Fly Sensitivity drivers.

    The Razer DeathAdder is Razer’s first right handed gaming mouse and is the result of years of extensive studies by Razer’s ergonomic engineering group. Thousands of gamers have been studied; their play styles, shape of hands and method of grip and the results of thousands of hours of study have culminated in the ergonomic shape of the Razer DeathAdder.

    The Razer DeathAdder possesses a sleek and smooth rubber coated matt black chassis that stretches from tip to tail, giving it an elegant and seamless body, that’s slip resistant during intensive gameplay. This lethal gaming weapon has the right curves in all the right places, providing the perfect fit to right-handed mice partisans. Its ergonomic right-handed design has 5 programmable, ultra-large non-slip buttons with Hyperesponse™ for improved comfort.

    “With all gamers in mind, the Razer team of specialized engineers built the Razer DeathAdder from ground up to make this the perfect right-handed gaming weapon. With the latest Razer-only 1800 dpi 3G infrared sensor, an unbeatable 1000 Hz Ultrapolling™ and 1ms response time, the Razer DeathAdder is in a league of its own,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, President of the Razer Group.

    30 Day Money Back Challenge
    The Razer DeathAdder makes it debut on Razer Webstore and in retail stores worldwide in mid December 2006. Retailing at a competitive price of USD 59.99, Razer makes this uber mouse a must-have by also introducing a 30 day money back guarantee program.

    While there are many right-handed mice out in the market that profess to be gaming mice, Razer’s 30 day Money Back Guarantee Challenge is Razer’s seal of confidence that guarantees that the Razer DeathAdder outperforms any other gaming mouse in the market and challenges all gamers to put the Razer DeathAdder to the test.

    In the unlikely event that a gamer is not convinced that the Razer DeathAdder is the ultimate right-handed gaming mouse, Razer is willing to take it back within 30 days of purchase with no questions asked. This challenge is only available on the Razer Webstore and terms and conditions apply.

    Detailed product features and specifications are available here.

    i think it is it looks so awesome man but i hate paying 50 quid for mice :( seems like it has less dpi 1800 compared with 2000 and also didnt the razer habu just come out :S confusing

    i just checked it out at there site it seems as tho it is an optical mouse just with an infared sensor like the plasma diamondback which i have sumwere lying around 3g thing is meant to make it more accurate it look pretty small imo

    Unless Razer starts working on improving their drivers, I will never buy another mouse from them again. They are by far the worst drivers I have ever used for a "gaming" mouse.

    It was the Microsoft Habu, made by Razer, but name of Microsoft. Great mouse too I heard, but I'm still wondering if this is better than Laser, and it's also 200 DPI less than most Laser mice out there.

    i think the microsoft habu is meant to be a right handed copperhead and this is meant to be a right handed diamondback but with slightly more dpi

    First of all Dpi has absolutely nothing to do with performance !
    No onme uses 2000 Dpi when they are playing, 400 Dpi is more than enough for low-medium sensitivity gaming. Laser performs lousy because it can't track twitch-moves. The fact that it uses infrared is good because it will work on all the surfaces on the market. Nice to see that Razer has seen the light and stopped the Dpi war!

    i use 2000 dpi on my copperhead when playing and its so much better and easier to look around on bf2, i have on the fly dpi settings and lower it when sniping so im more accurate

    Actually, quite a bit of people use 2000 DPI, I use between 1800-2000 DPI for UT2004, then go down to 400 when sniping. So, people do use 2000 DPI, and don't say that they don't.

    Well, then try this. Set windows sensitivity 5/10 notches(Zero filtering of mouse movement by Windows). Set you G5 /G3/G7 /Razer Copperhead to 100%(Both sensitivity and on the fly sensitivity, if you have Razer) sensitivity and 2000 Dpi.

    Enter CS/CS:S or Q4, set in-game sensitivity to 100%. If you use 1280*1024 that means you roughly turn 720 degrees pr. inch mouse movement. No one utilizes that sort of sensitivity therefore anything above 800dpi is just show off. Even the most hardcore super high sensitivity gamers will tell you that 800 or 2000 dpi makes no difference

    I don't use 2000 for CS:S at all, only about 400-800, and as I said earlier, I only use 2000 DPI for UT2004. And that's only for certain weapons.

    I'm just trying to point out that there are people that use 2000 DPI. And you stated that "no one uses 2000 Dpi when they are playing".

    I have the options on my G7, but 100% of my last few months have been spent at 800DPI.

    Its a nice balance between hardware sensativity, software sensativity, and movement for *me*.

    Not many people keep up with my 40% accuracy in wolf anyways.

    However, I do have to admit.. that 400DPI for sniping can be handy.

    As can the 2000.... when panzering...

    Yeah, I don't always use 2000 DPI, only when playing UT2004 and certain weapons, but I was just trying to say that there are people that use 2000 DPI.

    And for sniping, in CS:S and any other game, I usually use 400 DPI, and for other weapons (rifles and such) mainly 800-1200 DPI. And in UT2004 and only UT2004 do I use 2000 DPI.

    Don't you just love On-The-Fly sensitivity? I love it on my G5!

    This is difficult to explain, but I'll give it a go.
    Just because you set your mouse to 2000 dpi doesn't mean that you actually benefit from it having 2000 dpi, a mouse with only 800 dpi will be just as precise in many cases because the dpi isn't the "bottleneck of precision". Dpi is only a bottleneck if your mouse isn't precise at a given sensitivity, that is why I wrote the stuff about setting it to zero filtering. When you use your 2000 dpi at maximum resolution you probably use a low sensitivity, the exact same precision can be gained by a mouse with less dpi with a bit higher sensitivity that is closer zero filtering. The limiting factor of precision in games isn't the amout of dpi it's the precision of your hand movement when you are over 800 dpi with zero filtering. Filtering functions just like a divider between FSB/RAM, when you have a mice running 2000 dpi most users set the divider to something high maybe 1/5 which equals a 400 dpi mouse running with zero filtering. The divider can be the ingame sensitivity, sensitivity adjusted by the driver, windows sensitivity.

    That is exactly how I play the majority of the time. On any mouse with say only 800DPI I have to jack up the Windows Sensitivity and the in game sensitivity to get it at least close to what I usually play with, but it just isn't right unless you have 2000DPI. So don't say people don't use 2000DPI, they do, I do.

    Higher DPI isn't meant to make your precise, in fact I find it is the exact opposite of that. It make you less precise, however it does allow you to move and aim a lot faster, which is why most people drop the DPI to snipe, you are more precise at lower DPIs.

    Also, laser is just plain better than optical. No optical mouse I have ever used has been able to track on glass. However, my G7 has no problem at all on glass. Laser mice work on more surfaces than optical mice do.

    I still don't see the point of burnin fifty hard earned dollars of mine on a mouse. Especially when I make only $9 an hour before taxes. I got an 800 dpi laser or optical mouse (I forget) and I can hold my own in fps. Mouse cost me $8 and it glows blue!

    It isn't exactly the same. The Microsoft one has the DPI adjustment buttons right over the middle scroll button, a designed directly ripped off Logitech?
