Deathadder Elite´s Mechanical Switch

I have a DeathAdder mouse and recently bought a DeathAdder Elite. There is something that I have do say about its new Mechanical Swtich: I did not enjoy it.

Putting the Mechanical Switch characteristics aside (louder volume and more tactile click), it has two major downsides on the DeathAdder Elite:
- The left and right buttons have different resistences (right button as a little bit less resistence).
- It has more resistence (maybe that is something that I should have expected) compared to DeathAdder (classical), but my impression is that it is not only requiring more strenght but also more movement per click. This means the every click takes a bit longer to ocurr.

I also noticed that, depending of how your hand in laying over the mouse, it is possible to feel a vibration on click that goes over the mouse cover, from the button area to the razer logo.

I think that I will have some trouble get adjusted, specially because I still use my old DeathAdder on my other computer.

I do not expect that Razor will do anything about it, but I thing that they should know that not everyone is satysfied with their new mouse.

Also, other potencial users should be aware of the DeathAdders´s differences when considering buying their next mouse.

Both switches should have the same accutation force - IMO it's caused by shape of DeathAdder.


I agree.

Also you don't click left & right button with the same finger.

The same situation if you're driving a car - most of people are braking with right foot, but try to brake with left foot (as Michael Schumacher :D), and you'll probably brake garder, even if you try to brake as light as possible.


Well, I did not think that is was necessary to mention that I tested using the same finger.

Yes - it would require more strenght, but the accutation speed will be almost the same.


I hope so, although I am not sure about it.

There will be always some vibration, there's a spring inside each button, no matter is it "mechanical switch" or "non-mechanical" Omron switch.


I never noticed it on DeathAdder (classic). Anyway, it is not an issue.

Thank you for your thoughts!
