    Hello guys, i recently bought the da elite and i have noticed that the right click has a more clicky and stiff feel compared to the left which feels a tiny bit more loose. Everything is working fine, i just wonder if thats normal. Has anyone experience that?

    That's funny, I just noticed the same thing. I'm guessing it's intentional, to make pressing left click sound better. I don't have the Elite, just the DA Chroma, but they're essentially the same mouse under the hood. I actually like the clicky left.

    In my case, right feels more clicky and stiff. Left click is a bit more loose. It's not that noticeable, just ocd problems.

    Oh, that's strange. Try researching it? If you can't find anything, by all means go submit a support ticket here.

    I don't think that its such a big problem in order to RMA it. I just would like to know if anyone has a similar experience.

    It's normal that they sound/feel slightly different. There was a similar thread a few weeks ago but I can't find it.

    Thanks for letting me know that. It will help me sleep tonight and my ocd may leave me alone :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    It has been like this for a long time :) My Deathadder 3.5G has it too. I guess it is due to the shape of the plastic.

    Thanks for your replies. I would like to hear what other users have to say about it.

    it think It's because of the angle of the right side, the left side is rather flat and since your fingers are pressing down it seem like it requires less force to press, whereas on the right side only ~cos(angle) of the force goes directly to the switch
    at least that's how I would explain it

    this just made me right/left/right/left click like an idiot for a minute at work :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: but mine feels completely identical on both sides. very curious that it's not uniform for a lot of people haha

    sounds logic. Does it happen to you as well?

    i feel like on every mice i've used so far it's a bit different on every side, except when i use an ambidextrous mouse since it is basically the same on every side
    But I'm sure Razer doesn't produce two different switches and puts them inside

    Not sure about deathadder elite because I have an ouroboros, but on mine the left and right feel different, so I guess it can be expected?

    If you look at the DA from the front. Underneath the plastic button there is a white plunger which activates the switch. It sits more recessed on the left than on the right. So when you press the plunger closer to the edge of the mouse gets a higher force applied as a result of torque. You apply the same force but the plunger on the right click gets a higher force and activates quicker or in a mouse case feels clicky, while the left sits far back so requires a little more effort to push in hence feeling as if its loose or requires a higher effort to push it.
