The latest revision of the Death Adder is definitely nice (I've bought every single revision). I love the rubber grips on the side now, but I wish they kept the soft-touch material on the top of the mouse too. Not sure why they removed that.

So for the 4th generation, I'd want soft touch coating back on the full mouse along with customizable LED's.

The question begs though..... as much as I'd like the ability to either change colour or intenstity, would it be worth an extra $10 on a MSRP $70 mouse?

I did find a use for the software though.... nice to be able to have the lights extinguish themselves when the monitor goes to sleep.

Just put in a couple of hours worth of DIII with it and I'm pretty happy.

What are you adder users using for a pad? Also, do you find the light weight OK for FPS's?

Edit: Also for FPS's, the lack of DPI adjustment on the fly seems like a serious oversight. I need that when going from tank to foot in BF3. Admittedly, that is the fault of the game but still needs dpi adjustment to compensate.

+1 for G700. Comfy, wireless / wired. plenty of buttons. solid.
Only down point is the very front G button has a tendency to not register clicks / get stuck but I just don't use it anyway.. though I would a lil more if it worked right.
Is a little on the heavy side with no weight customization. Though you can take out the battery while it's plugged in.

Came from Copperhead, had 2 by warranty.. good but wore out too fast(JUST inside the warranty). Features these days on most Razers are lacking for their price / quality
Gigabyte wireless thing (peak in middle was uncomfortable)
Kone+, Had 2, by warranty. best mouse I've ever used apart from the mouse-wheel problem that is so widely reported.

If a DA was causing your system to BSOD then you either got a bum unit or something was going on with your usb port.

I specifically moved away from wireless because I was tired of looking at the mouse and wondering if it was wireless lag or something with the game server that was going on. Now when I experience lag I know where to point the finger.... ;)

I swear that option wasn't there in the original software, good find nonetheless!

And I keep mine at 4000dpi for the most part. Works fine for me in BF3, though I guess lower would likely make flying easier.

I use the Razer Sphex as my pad. It's the thinnest one I could find since my keyboard ends up sitting partially on it.

I had 2 death adders and 1 lachesis, they are both awesome for grip but they are both too low for my grip, I preferred the lachesis though (I'm ambidextrous and used to switch hands depending on the game) I now have a SteelSeries Fnatic, it's great, bit weird to get used to at first but it's a great palm-grip mouse.

Bit of a thread res, but not much better place to put this.....

The software has been updated yet again and appears to have more functionality (although I'm going by memory). Off the top of my head, it now has the option to turn on/off either the wheel or logo lights, and appears to me to have a lot more configuration settings (or at least they appear more intuitive if they were there previously) for things like DPI and adjustments for surface / mouse pad.
