    Is the sensor on the Razer Lancehead TE the same one as the Deathadder Elite?

    I purchased a Deathadder Elite a few days ago upgrading from my worn out Deathadder Chroma and I'm curious if the Lancehead TE has a better sensor.

    I'd love to try out a new mouse shape since I have always used a Deathadder for years now. (I don't like laser sensors)

    What kind of response is that? It was not even worth replying to be honest.

    And if the information is not on the web from what I can tell, all it says is:
    • True 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensor
    • Up to 450 inches per second (IPS) / 50 G acceleration
    I have the mamba TE, mamba 2012, and other laser mice from various brands, I just prefer the natural feel of optical. Considering that the only optical sensors razer offers is in the Deathadder and the Lancehead TE I thought it was relevant to add that I don't like laser so people don't start recommending other mice.

    Thanks. Maybe once some reviews start coming out the answer to my question will be set in stone. Or if Razer would just chime in :D

    Since No one can answer such a simple question. Yes the sensor is the same from The Deathadder elite in the Lancehead TE

    The Deathadder elite and Lancehead TE have the same sensors, But then the Lancehead Wireless does have a Laser sensor just like the Mamba TE and Mamba. Why they didn't put the optical in the wireless I do not know, But thats just a note if you do go to look at the wireless edition too.

    Some says laser sensor has better battery life than optical sensor.

    For this thread, yes. It's basically an ambidextrous Deathadder Elite.

    Since the Lancehead TE was released, I wonder what would happen to the wireless Mamba 2015. It might be just the same, but if the 2015 Mamba TE would have a refresh, it would be a more decorative Deathadder Elite.

    Basically, I think the Mamba TE/Wireless and the Lancehead TE/Wireless should have the same thing. Laser for both wireless versions, and optical for both TE versions.

    I agree with glade. I play a lot of competitive cs. I bought the mamba TE and though it performs well it has failed me hardcore. I cant afford to have a mouse that fails.. I really hope with the new switches and optical they come out with a mamba te elite with switches and optics. I would buy that over anything hands down. Now im going to buy either the death adder elite or the new lance head. Depends on the feel. Regrettably it will probably have the be the death adder though the lancer has better aesthetics the ambidextrous will mess with aim precision the grip just wont feel right. Will be testing this friday. My mamba will be a backup going forward. Ill update once I have tested both. Along with my other maybe more impossible decision. Zowie XL2540 or ASUS PG258Q. Oh why do they put us though such hard choices!

    The Lancehead te is similar to the mamba te I don't think they will refresh the mamba even tho the mamba is 2/3 years old they might ditch the mamba.
