Good afternoon all, despite the snow we’re still here and working away, so we thought we’d post a Product Spotlight as we tend to every Thursday afternoon. For those of you who haven’t had a been with us too long, the Product Spotlight posts are just a space where we get to recommend one of the products that our staff has bought recently and really enjoyed.
It’s nice and simple, just a strong recommendation from people who work with tech day in, day out. This week’s recommended product comes from me, which is always nice to be able to say. Razer has rebuilt its Deathadder gaming mouse, adding in a better sensor, but keeping the same attractive and comfortable matte black exterior that the original had.
The Deathadder, now called the Deathadder Respawn, now boasts a 3.5G infrared sensor, bringing it from 1,800dpi to 3,500dpi, which isn’t an inconsiderable bump at all, in the grand scheme of things. Moreover, it maintains the two side-mounted buttons around where the thumb grips the mouse. Those are ideal for the off-hand controls that so many first person shooters seem to demand these days, be they weapon switching without moving a hand or throwing grenades.
It’s also nice to see that the Deathadder Respawn boasts a response time of 1ms, which means that there’s less of a delay between your mouse and your PC than between your PC and your display.
In the end, it’s a nice, simple piece of kit. It’s comfortable, looks nice and it’s very well moulded indeed. The fact that it moves well and is pleasantly weighted is worth mentioning too.
Razer’s Deathadder Respawn is currently €48.80, which is a solid price for a mouse that performs as well as it does.
