    I just can't find proper information about the differences between Deathadders. What do you think?
    I know the 10 and 16k dpi difference, but 99.9% of the time I would not use more than 10k.
    Or maybe I would but i don't know about it. Any advices?
    Currently I'm using a cheap ebay mouse but it's not good, especially as a Widowmaker main in Overwatch.
    So I'm planning to buy a new and proper mouse. Is Elite better than Chroma if we do not count the dpi?

    Elite is the newer model, and it has additional DPI buttons in the center.
    Also, I think the sensor in the Elite is improved, so get the Elite all the way.

    Ya, definitely get the Elite. Better grip on the scroll wheel also.

    The choice is easier when you realise that the mousefeet on the Chroma are so small that they break down easily and cause rubbing on the mouse plastic underneath. So go with the Elite, has better mousefeet, you wont regret spending extra. Sensor and grip wise they are the same, sensor is different for the elite but you wont notice a tangible difference while gaming.

    Even tho you don't use over 10k DPI the elite will sometimes perform better thanks to the improved sensor. This mice have high DPI in order to give a great precision even in lower DPI settings, and therefore the elite will sometimes perform better than the chroma.
    I would go for the elite anytime

    I'd go with the DeathAdder Elite simply because of the switches. I just hope it wouldn't end up having the same "double-click" issue that plagued the previous DeathAdders.

    The only thing i'd say it sucks about the elite is the color of it, comparing to the black&orange deathadder the elite has a nasty white on it. And i would say that every scratch or dirt is easily visible on it. So i'd do an Elite covered in black, but all the same it's better than the DeathAdder. So vote up!

    Thank you guys for answers! :) So I will definitely get the Elite. Have to wait a bit tho cause of the price.

    Definitely go Elite (which it seems you already are). On top of everything else already mentioned, you can use the two buttuns behind the scroll wheel for anything you want, like most Razer mice. Since I rarely change my mouse DPI, I set it to PgUp and PgDn for web browsing, for instance.

    I think the Deathadders are all great. I agree the Elite is the best. But the Deathadder Chroma is my favorite.
