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.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found:
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.
  • Razer Focus+ optical sensor
  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable design
  • Lackluster side buttons
