The size difference looks to be on the back end of the Salmosa, as the buttons looks to be roughly the same length.


Lachesis = 5.16" long, same for Diamondback, Death Adder, Copperhead


Salmosa = 4.6" long

Smaller and lighter, not really cheaper. I'm not exactly sure when it is hitting the market as Razer's site didn't say... but, then, I bought my Lachesis before Razer posted it was available on their site.

Anyone know where I can get a mouse cheaper than 50 ? with tax and shipping?

With 2000 DPI?

You know how most mouses have 400, 800, and 2000 dpi? When will you use the 4oo dpi when you got 2000? I dont get it.

^newegg, fry's, microcenter.

The reason for 400 dpi is in mid game when you need to make a very precise movement, such as using a sniper rifle at long range, it is easier to do with lower dpi.

Thank you so much trotter for all the cheap prices. I love you.


trotter if you can do that with great gaming keyboard that would be great too. There should be a sticky on how to find cheap prices on great products.

I use froogle, or newegg but does not give me what I want.

I found the adder one for 40 with shipping at this site, but I never heard of it
OverStock Dealz, OverStock Deals Major Online Electronics, Computer Wholesaler Liquidator
Will I be getting a genuine deathadder if I buy from them? cause on froogle I got a (generic) sign
