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.

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.

Pros
  • Razer Focus+ optical sensor
  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable design
Cons
  • Lackluster side buttons
