I'm going to buy my first gaming mouse and can't decide between these. I will mainly be playing Minecraft and CS:GO. Thanks for reply! Here is the list of the mouse :
Steel Series Raw: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/steelseries-mouse-62155
Steel Series Rival: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/steelseries-mouse-62271
The deathadder and sensei are very similar. The major difference is that the deathadder is a slight bit more sensitive on the buttons and the sensei is a tad more durable on the cable. The other 2 I havnt used so no comment there
Also, the deathadder side button placement is a bit different position... I found the sensei easier for my hand to accurately use the side buttons, but I have big hands. On the deathadder I was hitting the wrong one alot, which got me killed often when I had one as grenade and the other for melee... Sneeking up and whipping grenades at someone's head is not a good idea... lol
I like my G600, but the deathadder is also quite comfy
If i had to choose between raser deathadder 2013 edition vs steelseries rival, what would you choose fort like minecraft and csgo
I too prefer optical over laser, hate mouse acceleration.I have a DA 2013 and its very good. Not too many frills except for scroll button and razer logo lighting
Razer software is pretty good too to setup macros, etc.
I'd compare prices between the Deathadder and the Rival. they're both good mice and go on sale quite often. (Usually for ~<$45) so I'd say it's worth waiting a bit to get something for like 15-20% off
To be honest, all I care about is the comfort and ergonomics.
I don't really mind the "acceleration" from laser mice and whatnot.
With that said, I have never used a mouse more comfortable than the Deathadder/Mamba. It fits my hand perfectly.
If I were you, I'd try to use them in a store or something before buying!
I second this... Getting a feel of them makes it a much easier choice
I use the Deathadder 2013, and love it.
