Reviews around color (4.72 of 5)

  • well i don't really care about those but the colors are cool
  • The colors on the mouse are really cool to mess around with as well!
  • I also love the Chroma colors, although I would have bought the mouse again even if it was just one color
  • I had been reluctant to buy it due to flair on the top of the mouse and the terrible green color on the scroll wheel and logo.
  • Awesome performance, and I love the fact that you can change the color of the mouse wheel and logo to glow in different colors and sequences

Reviews around sensor (4.44 of 5)

  • Now recently the sensor has stopped picking up any signal at all and won't work unless I unplug and replug it into the motherboard.
  • Overall if your looking for a good mouse that has the same sensor as a Deathadder elite, but with fancy lights
  • The movement on the screen is smooth and Its so responsive with its 5G sensor its hard to beat
  • So if your missing shots, you either need to get adjusted to the mouse or the game is lagging, because this sensor is no joke
  • Great feel, good software, good worth and sensor is nice.

Reviews around deathadder elite (4.44 of 5)

  • The switches all feel good, if I had to nitpick I'd like a scroll wheel with more stiff scroll steps
  • Obviously one aspect that the mamba 2012 has over the Deathadder elite is that it can be used wirelessly, but honestly I dont use wireless since I have to charge it and stuff, so I dont mind the downgrade, besides the deathadder elite is cheaper.
  • - I went with the DeathAdder Elite after my experience with the G403
  • This mouse is a nice, nice step up from the Deathadder elite.
  • The Razer DeathAdder Elite is the best mouse I have ever used.

Reviews around deathadder (4.10 of 5)

  • I have had multiple Razer Nagas and I can say that I love the DeathAdder much more
  • I was sent being a lemon, but the problem persists upon replacing the Deathadder with another, identical Deathadder
  • Really love the classic Deathadder Design with some changes that make this baby really worth having.
  • After only about 6 months of use, my DeathAdder has fallen prey to the double-click issue which plagues the whole line
  • I have both the deathadder 3500 and essential and love them both so much I wanted to try the elite and I am not disappointed

Reviews around light (3.93 of 5)

  • The lighting is sketchy and jittery and the mouse will randomly decide not to work...
  • He likes the customization features of this mouse and enjoys all the lights
  • led lights went out on this bought these about 4 months
  • After downloading Synapse, the Razer software app, I changed the lighting to "static" and lowered the brightness to its dimmest setting.

Reviews around button (3.83 of 5)

  • Also, the buttons are easy to press but not so easy you accidentally press them, which is a problem I've had with just about every mouse I've ever used.
  • A new updated design, mouse feet improvements, better and more durable grip, and heftier side buttons, 16000dpi, and chroma integration
  • I collapsed the side buttons of my last mouse and decided on the Razer DeathAdder Elite as my replacement
  • Great mouse, buttons feel great and the mouse is smooth
  • the DPI buttons are great too, and its all programmable.

Reviews around weight (3.75 of 5)

  • Mouse is light weight, in both of my Logitech G500 mice I tried for many months various weights and ultimately removed any and all weights as I felt weight being detrimental to the acceleration capabilities
  • Same as DeathAdder, I find it slightly too light weight and would prefer to be a
  • The design is perfect for bigger hands (like mine), the weight is good, it's extremely precise, the software is very helpful and the product is of great overall quality
  • Took some time to get use to this mouse, it is a little big, but very smooth and relatively light weight compared to other products
  • The weight seems perfect; not too heavy, but not too light.

Reviews around quality (3.56 of 5)

  • How can this be one of the highest rated mouses when the build quality produced problems the 1st day?
  • The click travel is good and does feel cheap, build quality is nice and lightweight
  • Highly disappointed with Razer for overcharging for such product of terrible quality.
  • I love it, is an amazing quality mouse and you should buy it!

Reviews around grip (3.52 of 5)

  • After about two months with this mouse, I found the grip on the thumb rest came loose, likely from me gripping it tightly and it sliding off over time
  • The only thing I dislike about it is the tendency for the grips on the side of the mouse to slowly lose the adhesive grip and start sliding off.
  • only 1 problem. if you have sweaty hands, over 3ish months of use, the grips will start to come off
  • The scroll wheel has a satisfying feel and nice grip, its not a fly
  • The scroll wheel has a nice rubber grip to make scrolling more precise

Reviews around razer (2.25 of 5)

  • but I can hardly ding Razer for Amazon’s ineptitude in this regard.
  • fantastic razer mouse, feels great in the hand and is made of quality materials.
  • In fact, the biggest barrier to entry is the still-not-intuitive Razer software
  • The Razer Mamba Elite mouse is almost the perfect gamers choice
  • I bought two of them already because I was afraid Razer would stop producing these

Reviews around plastic (2.10 of 5)

  • The only down side would be that the plastic on the bottom of the mouse can get scratched up quickly.
  • The scroll wheel feels fine, the software to change the dpi is awesome, the thumb buttons are in a pretty ideal location, and the clicking is great, but for some reason, since this is ergonomic, it felt small... and for that reason it never felt comfortable playing cs:go, which is a game i've been playing now for over 15 years.
  • It's gamer quality with braided lines and tough plastic with a good weight that gives it a quality feel
  • you want high accuracy and play mostly fps like cs go or rainbow six, zowie is the better one and you can actually feel that you are aiming better with the best sensor
  • I also feel that the rubber side grips are a waste of money, they are comfortable, but a rougher textured plastic on the sides would be an improvement that would last longer for players who have a deathgrip on their mice

Reviews around issue (1.80 of 5)

  • Only thing that I didn't like was the notorious issue with this mouses' wheel click function button getting stuck and not working properly.
  • Though not a big investment money-wise, the amount of time I invested in trouble shooting this issue has made me leery of buying other Razer products
  • They confirmed that when this issue occurs on the Deathadder Elite/Chroma, etc. and is related to hardware
  • I tried adjusting settings, troubleshot the issue with Razer Support, and ultimately struggled with it until I was ~2 months past my warranty period.
  • This issue is so annoying that I had to dock a couple stars

Reviews around logitech (1.74 of 5)

  • This is obviously a direct result of using the cheap logitech hardware which requires harder button pushes.
  • I want to spread the word out to all of my gaming friends, especially one in particular because he had a cheap logitech mouse that came bundled with the computer and the cable is starting to wither away
  • Yes, the cheap logitech has slower tracking, but it's smooth
  • All the Logitech or Microsoft mice I’ve used over the years have been unsatisfactory in comparison.

Reviews around month (1.54 of 5)

  • I don't know if there is a policy for this kind of stuff, but to pay 50.00 dollars for a product to only last a month is just the absolute worst.
  • good mouse but 5 months in I broke one of the side buttons by pressing a little to hard
  • Two months of light office use, and the rubberish comfort pads where you rest your pinky and thumb are falling off
  • After a solid month, this guy just decided to die on me

Reviews around sound (1.00 of 5)

  • So far used only for work (2d,3d) and browsing the netThe left m.button rebounds with a strange noise (no missclicks or double clicks).The scroll wheel occasionally makes an irritating scratching sound (like the one when you scratch your fingers to a chalkboard )
  • Left click feels much more "clicky" in comparison to the more mushy clicking sound of the right click
  • Strange rattling sound came out of nowhere, makes sound if the mouse is shaken
  • already after having it for 5 weeks it has a rattling sound in it
  • You are bound to either break the scroll wheel, something will break on the inside and you will get a rattling sound, or the left or right click would become loose

Reviews around 600 (1.00 of 5)

  • The right and left buttons are quick with little pressure unlike my Rival 600 where I have to put a little bit more of muscle

  • The 2 buttons on the side doesn't break my grip and unlike the Rival 600, it doesn't slip
