Razer Deathadder - Lift off
I'm mad at all of you :(
Pretty much everyone recommended the Razer Deathadder and I bought it yesterday. The mouse looks and feels great but the high lift off sensivity is getting on my nerves. I want to believe I'll get used to it but I'm not sure.

After googling for the problem, everyone just uses a piece of scotch tape to cover the sensor, but that's something I'd avoid doing, having paid 60 for the mouse.

Did you guys use this trick or just got used to the lift off?

1day is just not enough, you will adapt after 7 days.I would reccomend you to use lower sens
2013-02-26 12:36:53
You're probably right. I'm using 800 dpi with 1000hz, atm.
2013-02-26 12:43:00
try 500hz
2013-02-26 12:44:45
I read that the HZ have nothing to do with the sensivity.
2013-02-26 14:14:04
if you do not try it and only keep asking it you will never find out
2013-02-26 14:22:09
alright alright
2013-02-26 14:24:19
You are correct. It doesn't. It's only the amount of "readings" the mouse does on the surface per second.
2013-02-26 14:51:18
try 1800dpi 1000hz 6/11 wsens 2.3 ingame sens, worked amazing for me
2013-02-26 12:59:16
That is the highest sensitivity i've ever heard of... lol
I use 450 dpi 6/11 2.6, on a ZOWIE AM.

The best thing about that sens that you have though is if you flick it you'll be able to do backflips. :D

- Edit your original post with 3/11 then adv, lol... To save the confusion :D

2.3 sens with this dpi? ur using ur penis to move the mouse?
2013-02-26 13:27:58
i made mistake i wanted to say 3/11 :)) sry
2013-02-26 13:29:03
to get 1:1 you have to use 6/11 or you are scaling your mouse movement
2013-02-26 13:30:32
What the actual fuck has penis to do with anything ?
2013-02-26 13:30:07
helicopter sens bra
2013-02-26 13:31:02
Man, you kinddin, right? :) That's fucking high

I use 450dpi 500Hz 6/11windows 2.6ingame
2013-02-26 13:28:48
Rofl, you use the exact same mouse settings as me... Somebody has good taste ;)
2013-02-26 13:33:00
yeah bro :D
2013-02-26 13:40:05
Is it just me or am I the only one using 400dpi, 500Hz, 6/11 and 2 ingame. So far it seems like my sens is too low, tho I do not feel like highering it.. :/
2013-02-26 13:58:51
I'm using 800 dpi, 6/11 with 1 sensivity in game lol
2013-02-26 14:14:53
First person in the world, highfive bro!!
2013-02-26 14:16:11
Probably not the only person man, I know people who use alot lower sens than that. For instance one of my friends uses 3/11 windows - 400 dpi - 1 sens in game.

It's a complete mystery how he plays, but he's still really good lol.

Anyways... Sensitivity is purely preference, nothing more and nothing less.

you should have got a Zowie, similar shape to deathadder, intelli 3.0 and with only a 1.5mm lift off distance (lowest on the market). and if i had of replied to your original post, I'm pretty sure i would have mentioned this. or i would have jsut said buy an Intelli 3.0

but yes you're right, the list off distance on a deathadder is poooor

Im using deathadder for nearly 3 years now, and Im incredibly happy with it, just do what the guys here told u too, lower the sens, and i think ull find DA one of the best mice ever made.
2013-02-26 13:03:10
Man, after 1 week you'll be used to the lift off(that in the DA you have to pull it higher than other mice), I have one for 7months and it's perfect
2013-02-26 13:31:17
On the new DA you can setup your lift off so whats the problem?
2013-02-26 13:40:23
maybe he bought the old one?
2013-02-26 13:56:43
maybe maybe :D
2013-02-26 13:59:27
Goddamn it I bought the old one. You're talking about DA 2013?
2013-02-26 14:18:44
yes. For 10 bucks more you could have gotten that one :D

5 more bucks actually, I thought it was way more expensive lol. FML
2013-02-26 14:23:12
So guys, no one tried the scotch duct tape trick to solve the problem?
2013-02-26 14:19:39
i did that with some of my older mice. It always worked flawless. Just make sure its see through
If its still too high just add another layer

Well you had to check WHICH DA are they recommending, because there are 3-4 versions of DA and all of them have different lift-off...
Deathadder 3G - Avago ADNS-S3668
Deathadder 3.5G - Avago ADNS-S3888
Deathadder 4G - Avago ADNS-S3988
all 3 have different sensor and ofc different lift-off.
2013-02-26 14:29:10
What are you talking about.. Im using DA 3.5G with Qck heavy and i have no problems with lift-off distance..
2013-02-26 16:22:53
Update firmware!
Select newest One without DC (direct control )!.

I use DA 900DPI @ 500Hz @ m_raw 1 @ sens 0,75 and it works perfectly :) [ + razer gholiatus alfa control ]

2013-02-26 16:25:22
The mouse is meant to be used at 500Hz as polling rate and it's default CPi rate (900(?)), otherwise it's interpolating.
