  • Good RGB lighting
  • Limited button layout and design
  • Razer Synapse software needs work


Razer's most popular gaming mouse gets a much-needed update. The DeathAdder V2 is an ergonomic, right-handed mouse with a high, curved profile. Its limited button layout and design won't be suited to MMO players or games that heavily rely on ability attacks.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The signature DeathAdder shape returns, with large click panels that flare off to either side. The V2 features Razer's Focus+ sensor, which tracks at up to 20,000dpi and as fast as 650 inches per second. Arguably the biggest improvement to the deathAdder V2 is its onboard memory.

The Razer Deathadder V2 has two different lighting zones: the scroll wheel and Razer logo. You can choose from a staggering 16.8 million colors and customize lighting themes in Razer's Synapse 3 desktop app. The mouse is pretty lightweight as well, making it possible to reduce hand and wrist fatigue if you're working long hours.

Sentiment Score[*] 87%
Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Razer DeathAdder V2 is not for people who demand a lot of customizable hardware. Most of its buttons (with the notable exception of the left mouse button) can be assigned practically any function. The prompt to install a bunch of Razer software upon plugging in the mouse was off-putting, as was the subtle push to create a Razer ID.

  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable design
  • Lackluster side buttons
