Razer DeathAdder Elite Chroma Review – Best Gaming Mouse For You

Last Updated on July 3, 2022 by Timothy M. Delapaz

Are you looking for a gaming mouse with advanced features to boost your gaming experience? Check out this article to learn more about the Razer DeathAdder Elite Chroma.

DeathAdder Elite Chroma is a mechanical gaming keyboard with some very high-end features. The design is sleek and modern, but the real attention-grabber is the RGB lighting. This keyboard comes in different color variants including blue, red, and purple. The keys are made of Cherry MX switches, which are quite loud by themselves. The maximum key travel is 1.8 mm, and the actuation point is 2mm which means the keys are highly responsive, smooth, and quiet even when pressed repeatedly.

The RGB lighting can be synchronized with other gaming devices such as routers (like Razer Turret), consoles like PS4™ or Xbox One S/S1/S2®, and desktop PC’s using Chromebox from ASUS®, monitors from Acer P241HU technology monitor I 7-7558U, tablets, and more.

The RGB system uses Razer Chroma technology which consists of 16 million colors LED light strips placed around the keyboard with three lighting zones that you can customize to your playing style with up to 256 different configurations. The LEDs are bright (7000 Nits), even when they’re off: it is always easy to see where you need an action or keypress in dark environments and at night! I really like the feel of this keyboard, for what it’s worth. The switches are clicky and feel satisfying in your fingers, even after extended gaming sessions.

There is a powerful Micro-USB charging port on one side of the board that lets you keep up your Razer Deathadder Chroma without needing to constantly attach an external battery bank or extension cable if you wanted to go wireless (which I still prefer). You can plug into power over USB -C this way keeping in mind that the final connection is made directly through USB-C. There are several options for lighting activation, each dedicated key works perfectly and I was pleased by the stable response times posted; all told it never felt sluggish or unresponsive like other OEM keyboards out there. When you’re done playing games let’s say mid-retreat to a chair across from your gaming desk, an LED on one either side of the keyboard illuminates to let you return home longer which is certainly an added feature that’s appreciated when this sequence happens rather frequently.

You can also access your PC settings at a touch of the Windows key on the keyboard and quickly switch between dark or light modes. This would be my recommendation for everyone: make Razer Chroma your go-to gaming gear, not just for those who game but anyone with dedicated needs from constantly powering systems; mobile phones, or tablets to desktop setups with the works key for a single function. The Razer Synapse software did well suffice, though I still prefer Corsair’s RGB keyboard and mouse controls. Nothing that kept me from recommending this as an excellent piece of gaming gear in its category outside of ‘if you want something more premium’ consider possible upgrade options especially having already examined.

The Razer DeathAdder Elite Mouse competition

I know how tough it is to compare rubber domed mice within the same category as everyone else tends to mainly just list out facts about what each manufacturer uses and where those features stand; using me requires a bit more explanation but the final decision itself comes down pretty easy for most people when I say you can find almost every other mouse that’s connected with an RGB light on this page via Razer. As far as material thickness, weight, sensor area these all play an important part in how much you can tweak what variables to add and see further into your own preference.

The Razer DeathAdder Elite utilizes a two-piece technology for weight reduction without losing the benefits of greater amazon scroll wheel precision: as with most mice, I prefer sensor areas closer together towards my palm due to many reasons but it’s not like these are intended for serious gamers. The smaller end accommodates the ambidextrous side buttons while similar to the original, the Elite is outfitted with a full 180 degrees of tilt capability for those who favor it.

Then certainly I’d like to dpi add flexing and real-life feel too because that definitely matters but overall Razer’s mice are solid at their core and this DeathAdder isn’t always going to strike as one of my favorites in every category; however, on comfort, they’re either really doing well or just supplying good enough during long sessions. The sensor is primarily for accuracy but Microsoft’s Precision Driver software allows for a total of 9 programmable buttons which are typically used as profiles in order to set up macros.

It is also possible that the DeathAdder will allow a three-way switch functionality profile where your dpi settings can program two different programs based on how much pressure they require, and what side button has been pressed. I mean it’s not even wrong when people keep lightweight calling them deathly accurate. When I first started testing deathly accurate mice, it had to be something customization like a much more expensive $150 model provided by Razer while other than the standard USB connector there are also these buttons.

For whatever reason Logitech’s M705 trackball is still under use on my desk despite being close to five years old now and the company has been moving towards motion sensors recently. The ability for additional movement features isn’t really what I see when the M705 isn’t in a gaming mouse but it serves as an oddity nonetheless. The model I’ve been using is the plain old blue color with red larger hands numbering and has buttons for scrolling horizontally, vertically, and under any circumstances; like every other trackball on the market that’s more than enough to gain momentum when coming up with new games or simply modifying your profile layouts.

Oftentimes motion sensors are highly problematic because movement impacts accuracy just best gaming mice about if not more than the buttons and thumb spacing on the mouse. The M705’s sensor offers 3200dpi movement itself but can be paired with browsing an optical sensor either an additional right-click button or no-click feature which is enabled through software (as you have seen above). No longer do people have to struggle with finding it difficult to type as their eyes wander up and down, rather they can use them fully focused forward while keeping a finger off of any harmfully.
