Default Does The Razer DeathAdder Have a Control for it's Light

Well as the title sugest I have been looking at geting the Razer DeathAdder but I am getting some conflicting results. Does it or does it not have some control to turn of the flashing blue logo on it? Some rivews say it do some say it dont. I like the mouse but I think the blue logo would drive me nuts so I was wondering if I can control it
Thanks

The latest driver/firmware does have the option. And you don't even see the logo with your hand on the mouse so I don't see what the problem is. It's mesmerizing at times too.

Oh and if you have a 64bit OS, make sure you have a 32bit OS to flash the firmware.

The mouse should work straight out of the box like any other mouse. The drivers allow you to make advanced customizations if you install them (i.e. dpi, acceleration, polling etc..)

Polling refers to the USB polling rate. The number of data samples per second taken. Standard USB polling rate is 125mhz.

The razer driver allows you to overclock the polling rate to either 500Mhz or 1000Mhz
Basically the mouse input feels a little more smoother.

Biggest disaster in razer mouse history = Lachesis
Basically razer released a buggy beta mouse to the public that yet to this day has resolved many of it's problems, and I mean serious problems.

Death Adder = one of the best mouses ever made by razer (bascially they licenced the "MS Intelli mouse shape" from MS and then incorporated there own IP, thus becoming the Deathadder. Deathadder was made for LOW SENSITIVITY PLAYERS, but it's still a decent mouse for mid Sense Players.
