Closer Look: DeathAdder 2013
Unlike its predecessors, The all new DeathAdder features a full matte finish, it is both aesthetically pleasing and deterrent to fingerprints and smudges.
The DeathAdder is famous for it’s remarkable ergonomics. The contoured left and right click buttons and rubber side grips on the device strongly indicate this characteristic.
The 2013 version doesn’t differ greatly from previous models. Apart from the matte finish and the rubber side grips, only the optical sensor has changed: It’s been upgraded to a super sensitive 4G optical sensor that pushes the dpi upperbound to 6400.
The DeathAdder sports a pulsating logo light and a scroll wheel light both of which can be toggled via the Synapse 2.0 console.
The device has an overall premium look and feel. The braided cable, gold plated USB connector, and the full matte finish all contribute to this fact.
