Default Razer DeathAdder

I've heard a lot about the drivers making it a brick. Can anyone tell me about this?

Anyone have anything to say about it?

New one on me. I could see trying to use the wrong firmware doing it, though.

I am using a Lachesis, the next step up. Drivers are no problem, but I did have to flash my firmware. No sweat, though.

Ive used Razer mice for years without any hiccups.
Currently have a Deathadder and had it since it was released, i have never had a problem with it at all.

I did read though that ASUS and MSI motherboards have a problem with the 1.21 firmware making it a 'paper weight' but with the new 1.27 firmware it should be fixed.

On the other hand i have problems with my Tarantula

Well I was skeptical about getting the pirahna headset, and tbh, it rivals my standard 200$ bose headset. just doesn't have as much sound cancellation, but the quality rivals.

I've looked at the diamondback,and used it for a few hours, my roommate has it, and it's too small, and the habu looks cheap honestly, and a lot of reviewers say the side piece with changable buttons falls out.

i'm using an intellimouse 2.0, it's just time for something faster


So deathadder it is?
