Summary: Great product, would recommend.
Pros: Long cable, able to work around any desk setup. Quick response. Great ergonomics with the hand, feels very nice. Lightly weighted so it can still be lifted, but keeps flush with pad if moved quickly.
Cons: Middle button works 75% of the time when clicked, still scrolls nicely. This is after 4 years of use.
Summary: I don't know how, but I got better at CS:GO when I switched from a Razor Imperator to the DeathAdder. Ergonomics, maybe? It also works much better on a mouse pad. There were times before I got a mouse pad when the mouse would stop reacting to the surface I was playing on, but the mouse pad fixed...
One of the worst mice I've ever used. The 4g/2013 edition is better in every way though.

Summary: I'm a long time high level counter-strike player. I also play SC2 at masters level. I've tested around 25 mice. This video is a review & comparison of the 3.5g and 4g/2013. There's an error in the video: The Abyssus has the 3.5g's sensor, and the Krait has the 4g sensor.
Summary: When I first got it, I installed the drivers needed, razer synapse 2.0, etc. Configured my dpi and I was good to go. At sometimes of using it, it would just immediately stop working. I tried some different usb ports. At times it would work for a day. At other times it would just break on me.
Pros: Out of all the mice I've tried for gaming, casual pc use, this one is the best for me. I am a claw/palm type grip, and dont like tons of extra buttons. I also need a mouse that negates my sweaty palms. This one fits everything. I love this mouse, just wish the scroll wheel didn't act up.
Cons: My scroll wheel just started to act up after 3 years. I've found out its a common problem with these. Most people say to take it apart and put something on the octagonal axle that is chewed up. I tried it and it helped.
Summary: Found it to be a bit too small for my hand over time - not so sure it's truly ergonomic, except when compared to their other products which doesn't tell you a whole lot. I can't game with vertical mice, but a slight rotation might help curb wrist strain.
Summary: Razer DeathAdder. 'nuff said. Accurate, smooth, fast polling, GOLD PLATED USB PLUG?! Yes - but means nothing to the everyday consumer - it's all marketing (unless you use this mouse over the course of several, several years... out in the ocean where it's salty or something).
Summary: I love this mouse, it is very durable, does not attract a lot of dirt and fits well inside my hand. The problem I have with most mice is that they are either too small or have too many buttons on them.
