The DeathAdder is Razer’s most popular line of mice — thanks to its proven ergonomic design, it fits users with large hands very well.Don’t get me wrong: DeathAdder Mouse that is very comfortable. I’ve never been so impressed with how they feel when they’re ready to abandon all their loyalties and 20 macro-programmed buttons and jump on the DeathAdder ship.
Razer’s latest DeathAdder V3 Pro is so comfortable that I’m starting to wonder if maybe I could get by with just two side buttons. I really didn’t think Razer could make his DeathAdder significantly more ergonomic. Like I said, it was already a pretty comfortable mouse, but somehow the company has managed to do just that with the redesigned V3 Pro.

DeathAdder V3 Pro Design and Comfort
Razer’s DeathAdder line has had the same general design since its inception, but Razer has confused it with the DeathAdder V3 Pro. Completely redesigned to be lighter, more tactile and more ergonomic for all styles of mouse grips.
The redesign is definitely notable. The DeathAdder V3 Pro has a more streamlined silhouette with less side flare than the previous DeathAdder, and replaces the unibody shell with a split key cover design. The overall design of the DeathAdder V3 Pro is very minimal, with 6 buttons (5 of which are programmable) and no Chroma RGB or Bluetooth.
The bottom of the mouse has a power button that doubles as a DPI switch and three PTFE mouse feet. There’s nowhere to store the mouse’s 2.4GHz wireless USB-A dongle, but if it’s your only option for wireless connectivity, you might not need to store it often.
Razer has made some minor changes to the DeathAdder V3 Pro’s geometry to improve the mouse’s ergonomics. This includes moving the hump to the left for a more natural placement and raising the hump for better palm support. The scroll wheel has been raised and the mouse thumb button has been moved up for better accessibility.
The DeathAdder V3 Pro’s ergonomic shape is nothing out of the ordinary that takes some getting used to. Unbelievably comfortable. I’m not very picky when it comes to mouse shape, but the V3 Pro was so comfortable that when I needed to use my other mouse (which has a lot of programmed buttons), I moved it to the other side of my desk. I had to move. macro) because my hand kept moving towards his V3 Pro. The DeathAdder line is generally made for users with large hands. I don’t have big hands, but I have medium-sized hands (and long fingers) and the V3 Pro felt like a perfect fit.
DeathAdder V3 Pro weighs 2.22 ounces (63 g), which is not the lightest mouse on the market ( Cooler Master MM720 It weighs 1.72 oz/49 g, SteelSeries Aerox 3 Weight is 2.01 oz/57 g). He is about 30% lighter than its predecessor at 3.10 ounces (88g). Death Adder V2 ProRazer notes that the White version of the DeathAdder V3 Pro (the color we reviewed) weighs an extra 0.04 ounces (1g) due to the paint process required to get the perfect true white color. is pointed out.
DeathAdder V3 Pro comes bundled with a flexible braided 6ft USB-C to USB-A cable, a USB extender and a Razer HyperSpeed 2.4GHz wireless USB-A dongle.
The DeathAdder V3 Pro also works with Razer’s recently released HyperPolling wireless dongle, upgrading the V3 Pro’s wireless polling rate to 4,000 Hz. The HyperPolling Wireless Dongle is sold separately ($30) and bundled with the DeathAdder V3 Pro for $165 on Razer’s website. Bundle discounts are great, but it’s a little disappointing that the dongle isn’t automatically included in his V3 Pro’s premium $150 price tag.

The DeathAdder V3 Pro has a textured matte finish that offers good grip and is relatively easy to clean. But if you need extra grip, Razer includes self-adhesive grip tape. It is also for sale. A la carte $10 on website. Black (black only, regardless of mouse color) grip tape is made from non-slip polyurethane and is pre-cut to fit the V3 Pro and is easy to apply and remove (and reposition as needed) I can do it.
Performance of DeathAdder V3 Pro
The DeathAdder V3 Pro is equipped with Razer’s Focus Pro 30K optical sensor, which has (you guessed it) a maximum sensitivity of 30,000DPI, a tracking speed of 750 IPS, and a maximum acceleration of 70g. With the included Razer HyperSpeed 2.4GHz wireless dongle, the DeathAdder V3 Pro’s polling rate reaches 1,000 Hz, and can be upgraded to 4,000 Hz using Razer’s HyperPolling wireless dongle.
It’s fun to talk about the DeathAdder V3 Pro’s ultra-high sensitivity, but that alone doesn’t make it a great gaming mouse.But these factors—the V3 Pro’s lightweight, ergonomic body, perfectly placed tactile buttons, smooth glide, and versatile sensors—are what set this apart. outstanding gaming mouse.
I was initially skeptical of Razer’s claims of ergonomic redesign (let’s be serious, the V3 Pro doesn’t look good). that No), but I won’t lie — the buttons are very clickable, tactile, and placed exactly where you need them. I didn’t expect the increased height of the scroll wheel to make a big difference in haptics, but I do like the ease of clicking.
I found the bottom-based DPI switch inconvenient. But the truth is that his DPI switch on most top-of-the-line bases is inconvenient anyway. Also, the DeathAdder V3 Pro is very light and easy to hold, so the DPI switch was never really inconvenient.
The mouse’s sensor is designed to work on a variety of surfaces, including glass. I’ve tested the mouse on everything from a mouse pad to a mirror on the side of a French Bulldog, and it worked on everything but a mirror (including clear glass and plastic).
V3 Pro only connects with 2.4GHz wireless and USB-C cables. Unlike many wireless mice on the market, it doesn’t have Bluetooth built-in. This is not necessarily a deal breaker. Bluetooth connectivity is generally too laggy for serious gaming, so Bluetooth in a gaming mouse is more of a convenience feature than a necessity. The V3 Pro’s 2.4 GHz wireless connection is excellent.I didn’t notice any latency issues or connectivity drops even when my mouse battery life dropped to 6% while playing overwatch.
DeathAdder V3 Pro features and software
The DeathAdder V3 Pro works right out of the box, but if you want to fine-tune the mouse sensitivity or adjust the liftoff distance, you can do so using Razer’s Synapse software.
You can use Synapse to remap the buttons on DeathAdder V3 Pro. If you’re using a Razer keyboard, you can also use the HyperShift shortcut to access secondary bindings for all buttons. Synapse also allows you to set up to 5 sensitivity steps.These stages are located at the bottom of the mouse[Power/DPI]You can switch using the button.
Synapse also allows you to set the mouse lift-off distance to low, medium, or high, depending on how sensitive you are when you lift (or put back) your mouse. You can also adjust this further by enabling “asymmetric cutoff”. This allows you to set liftoff and landing distances independently.
DeathAdder V3 Pro battery life
Razer rates the DeathAdder V3 Pro’s battery life at 90 hours. That’s reasonable for a wireless gaming mouse that uses a low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connection, especially for a very lightweight wireless gaming mouse. This estimate seems accurate. In my tests, I used the mouse consistently for both work and gaming, and it took about 10 days for the mouse to drop below 10% of his.
Using the DeathAdder V3 Pro with Razer’s HyperPolling wireless dongle drops the mouse’s battery life to around 24 hours, but that’s understandable.
DeathAdder V3 Pro is Amazing gaming mouse. Not only is the physical design virtually perfect, but it’s also highly customizable, versatile, and ready to use right out of the box. No RGB lighting, but I’m honestly glad I never had to deal with Razer’s Chroma side of his Synapse software.
My only minor issue with the V3 Pro is that it only has 5 programmable buttons. I get very lazy at times and don’t want to move my arm from the mouse to the keyboard, so I like the mouse to have his two digit buttons. But even the few buttons didn’t stop me from wanting to use this mouse. I also wanted to see where the mouse’s 2.4GHz wireless dongle is stored. Especially since there is no Bluetooth, you will need this dongle for wireless connectivity if you travel with this mouse.
If you’re looking for a lightweight, ergonomic wireless gaming mouse that literally feels like an extension of your arm, the DeathAdder V3 Pro is worth a look. The V3 Pro is a right-handed mouse and Razer has no plans to make a left-handed version. Left-handed users looking for lightweight ergonomics will love his truly ambidextrous Logitech G Pro Wireless and its faux ambidextrous successor, Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless.
