Razer Deathadder Elite and Gigantus Mousepad Review
The Razer Deathadder Chroma was one of our favourite mice from recent times, and today we have the Elite version up for review. With an improved sensor inserted into an otherwise unchanged design it should continue the long run of Razer as the weapon of choice for those for whom price is no object.
In addition to the Deathadder Elite we also have the Gigantus mousepad. A gaming surface that very much lives up to its name by being big enough to play your favourite title at an extremely low sensitivity whilst ensuring you never run out of space.
Let's find out if the new sensor keeps the Deathadder on the shortlist of best mice around.
Much like storage solutions use their sequential read speed as the headline figure, gaming mice are all about the maximum sensor resolution, and with the Deathadder Elite Razer have joined a very exclusive club of mice which have a 16000 DPI sensor. The manufacturer arms race of sensor resolutions continues unabated.
Away from that we have all the usual features of the Deathadder; great quality switches, full RGB lighting, light weight, great rubber grips and a lot of customisable buttons. There is little to dislike from the specifications side of things.
The Gigantus has equally shouty specifications. 455mm x 455mm. Possibly the largest surface we've ever looked at.
