The Razer DeathAdder V2 is the latest in the lineup of accessories by Razer, in their series of wired gaming mice. In the newest iteration, Razer has further enhanced the capabilities of the mouse since the DeathAdder Elite. The Focus +20,000 DPI sensor is being highlighted as its selling point and going at RM349, it certainly matches its price.
Before getting into the capabilities of the DeathAdder V2, let’s take a look at its overall appearance. With its ergonomic design, it’s one of the most comfortable mice you can ever use. The rubber along the side of the mouse can seem a little odd at first, but once you start using the mouse, its actual purpose is to provide a more comfortable grip.
Another key point for the mouse is the Razer SpeedFlex cable. While it is a wired mouse, the Razer DeathAdder V2 has freedom of movement due to being able to slide better while offering smooth controls. The sensor technology here has also been improved, with the previously mentioned Focus+ and 20,000 DPI. The wired nature of the mouse lets it have a good, latency free connection.
In FPS games like CS: GO and PUBG, the performance the DeathAdder V2 provides is certainly one to behold. 20,000 DPI may be quite high for some, it excels in high intensity situations, with sharp movements screen-wide and outstanding performance in longer fights. The Razer optic switch works with a laser light instead of the traditional mechanism, so it’s faster and provides an advantage in a competitive aspect.
Razer is once again, among the best in the backlighting effects. There’s only two zones with light, namely the scroll wheel and the Razer logo, but the brightness stands out and ensures the mouse always looks stylish. Together with the Razer Synapse 3 application, the colours, and more practically, the programmable buttons as well as Hypershift, means the customizations for the DeathAdder V2 is virtually limitless.
You can opt for the Chroma Visualiser to match the backlight to the audio playing from your computer and brings out the character in songs that have strong drums or deep basslines. The Chroma System can also be used in other applications, so why not light it up?
For the enthusiasts, the Razer DeathAdder V2 is worth the purchase. You’d be getting a gaming experience that’s just about incomparable, with one of the most high-tech sensors available in the market in one of the decade’s greatest gaming mice. Take into consideration user comfort too, and you’re probably not going to go wrong with this baby.
