    Try to Register the mouse in Synapse for warranty using that serial number, it could just be a Chinese Deathadder that made it out to some other country somehow, likely by some kind of mistake.
    If the serial number does not work with Synapse, it might be fake.

    Or some jerk decided to use it because he posted it online before using it himself.

    Why would anyone want to register a mouse they dont own as their own? You cant claim warranty by just registering the product so doesnt seem lucrative. Maybe to get the 150 zSilver for the mouse achievement but that too requires plugging in your device atleast once.

    There is a exclusive Chinese edition of the Deathadder, I believe. Some Razer products are exclusive to China // have China editions. Not sure though, I'd research (And look at fake ones - you can find plenty of them on the web)?
     
  5. What do you mean? Please help.. i bought it brand new from a legit game store and the fonts are completely different :/
     
  6. thanks how do i register the serial number? do i have to enter it somewhere or will it just work once i plug it in? im a noob to PC please help

    in Synapse app you find an arrow next to your ID/email on top right corner. Click that arrow and there should be option "register warranty", then just complete step by step and your device warranty should be added to your account.
     
  8. GUYS I REGISTERED MY MOUSE, SO DOES THAT MEAN ITS LEGIT?

    THANK YOU ALL DONE!!1 :)

    If it's all registered and got a expiry date for the warranty does that mean its legit & not fake? :)

    It may manufactured in China,that's why there is some Chinese word.

    My Razer Atheris has the same font so not sure why you think its fake. Only way to know for sure is to register it on the website, if they recognize the serial number then the product is legitimate otherwise its a fake.

    Probably he saw Chinese font. But he doesn't know the Blackwidow X Chroma Gold Edition is limited 1800 units made in China. There are still a lot people think negative way of "made in China", I don't know why.

    Razer had their own production line in China (since long time ago, real long time). Where most of the Asia Razer product export from there. Yeah, I did get Razer product made in China now too but there is no problem in registering.

    Anyway, no worry of this. Always get Razer Support to confirm the real or fake.

    Everything Razer makes is made in China. Also Razer doesnt have a production line, they employ other OEMs to assemble their designs. The chinese lettering on some mice is usually region specific. My Deathadder from the US doesnt have it but my Atheris from Malaysia does. So I guess its Asian region specific since Razer assumes most people in Asia speak or understand Chinese.

    Giveaway item only for people outside of China. Min was doing a giveaway on his facebook page for it.

    If you were in China then a few units were available for sale.

    No problem. Im glad you got it figured out. When I had to register my products I had a lot of issues and I know the feelings you were having. :)
