The DeathAdder is an entry-level ergonomic gaming mouse from Razer. Available in right- and left-handed versions, it utilizes the same 3500dpi infrared sensor as the ambidextrous Abyssus – higher-end Razer models offer laser sensors operating at up to 5600 dpi. The DeathAdder features five programmable buttons, while the Abyssus offers three. Both models feature 1000Hz Ultrapolling, which reduces response time to 1 ms. Sensitivity can be adjusted on-the-fly. Razer's mid-range ergonomic gaming mouse, the Imperator, adds on-board memory and two more programmable buttons in addition to a laser sensor.

  • Ergonomic right-handed design
  • 3500dpi 3.5G infrared sensor
  • 5 programmable Hyperesponse buttons
  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling (1ms response)
  • On-the-fly sensitivity adjustment
  • Always-On mode

I have that mouse since about one year now, it's working really great. Sensor is really precise, and that mouse is really comfortable, even after using it a long period of time.

I have the Razer Diamondback, which is of course both left and right handed, and I find it plenty comfortable - but had this been on the market when I got my mouse I probably would have gone for a right handed version over the regular universal one. It took a while to get used to the neutral design and was uncomfortable at first.
