    I think I got it I havent noticed the lift off on my mamba granted I game at 9001 dpi (yes really) so I never lift my mouse except to charge it. I did however order a new death adder to replace the 2013 edition I have. but we will see how different the two are :)

    Dang, I was planning on getting a 2013 Deathadder but I ended up deciding to go with the FinalMouse Scream One instead.

    Those look pretty nice! I am trying to figure out what I want to do with the 2013 as its going to be one of 4 mice I own pretty soon, I will probably hold on to it as a back up.

    It's pretty stupid, I somehow forgot that my deathadder was in my bag, which I put into the washing machine because it was quite dirty...
    Now my deathadder is also pretty clean, but can only be used for display purposes^^

    I feel it is unlikely a new deathadder will be out. It just came out last year or so. Geez, i miss the old big packaging... guess it all comes down to cost.

    Agreed, I don't think there is much to improve, and even if they do make some improvements it wouldn't be too noticeable. I think getting the best in stock at the moment may be the bets option.

    I just made a thread talking about sensors and a bit about the Deathadder toward the end. You might be interested in it. Click Here For The Thread
     
  10. This. While I love my Mamba, the one thing I would change about it is the sensor. The fact is, the current Deathadder has one of the most accurate and best performing sensors to be in a mouse and is why it is so popular. I would actually love to see a version of the Mamba with this sensor (pls Razer!) because of how accurate it is.

    @VikasG Totally agree. I kinda wish Razer ditches their shitty Phillips Twin eye sensors and come up with something better.

    I wouldn't say it's shitty, it does make a good job while actually playing games.
    However what bugs me a bit is that this is a problem that is never mentioned by any reviews, allthough it is pretty much common knowledge.
    Also I can't understand why they keep using it while there are clearly better options, my guess is that for Razer the gimmick of 16k dpi is more important than flawlessnes of their sensors

    Yeah it is unfortunate, and they got me with their gimmick, because I just assumed that higher dpi was an indication of a better sensor without doing my research, and you know what they say when you assume. I'm sure that a 10,000 dpi sensor would work just fine for me since I never go past that, but I do have to agree I've never actually noticed any issues while gaming the only time I notice anything odd is when I'm just on my desktop or browsing the web.

    Its all about marketing and advertising more dpi=more money which I am sort of ok with because more money means more cool razer stuff

    Take the new hex :) looks very cool and the old hex was usable for almost every game

    I think it looks badass! However it does seem very different from the deathadder. They are used mostly for different gaming genres as I'd assume. I'd purchase it with caution if anything.

    But sadly the "good job" isn't good enough for the price I pay for top tier mice unfortunately. I hear Logitech and Steelseries fanboys who keep bitching about how accurate their mouse is for less than what they pay for Razer everywhere and frankly I feel kinda sad. Razer seriously has to improve on both build quality and their sensors on their higher end mice. They've got marketing and branding right. Quality and performance is something they have to improve right now since after they've captured the heart and minds of gamers everywhere.

    You're right but if it's like the old hex only better (I hope) you don't need caution you just need enough games :cool_:

    True, they should at least inform the customer of the flaws before spending 179$ on f.e. the mamba
    But I have to disagree with them logitech and steelseries fanboy, nowadays their prices are nearly as high as razer prices (g900 ~ 170$ f.e.)
    Also their laser sensor do also have some flaws, like most of laser sensors out there
