The quality of a gaming session is largely influenced by the design, performance and the overall quality of the control pads. The following guide will compare and contrast two of the most popular gaming mice; the Razer DeathAdder Elite and the Logitech G403. The comparison will shed light on the best features of the two gaming mice and inform your decision when buying the devices.
The DeathAdder Elite is an improvement of the DeathAdder Chroma.
The mouse is 5 inches long, the weight of 105 grams, the height is 1.7 inches and has a width of 2.7 inches. The Logitech G403 has a wide range of sizes that you can choose from to suit your taste. The paml size ranges from 16.5-20cm, claw size from 17-20.5cm and fingertip size from 18-22cm. the G405 has sensor 3366which is extremely effective. The weight is 90g with buttons of Omron switches. The game types for Logitech G403 are FPS, RTS, and MOBA. The Elite has additional two buttons for the DPI functions making the total buttons 7.
The Razer DeathAdder Elite has only been improved over the previous scooped body, it has two big thumb buttons and there is a textured rubber cover on the sides to provide a soft and comfortable grip. These improvements include a smooth matte plastic surface underneath the palm that favors either claw grip or palm grip. Logitech G403 is designed to provide comfort with its straight-edge shape. The grip is enhanced by the contours on the sides to avoid slips and inaccuracy. G403 is relatively smaller and fits perfectly in the hand but DeathAdder is larger.
There are subtle grooves on the right and left click buttons that provide comfort and enhance faster lateral movements. This feature is meant to give you fast actuation time and a satisfying and an audible click. The Elite has extended the durability of up to 50 million clicks. Logitech G403 lags in clicks because it comes with only 20 million clicks which are less than half that of the Elite. G403 has the two thumb-side buttons well placed to avoid accidental clicks. The left and right clicks are fast and the detached cover will never warp after clicking.
The Elite has a redesigned scroll wheel which has coarse nubs to increase the tactile feel. This feature reduces the travel of the wheel and the tension on the scroll steps during gaming or browsing. The scroll wheel is even more improved with an addition of two buttons below it. These two buttons will allow you to switch between DPI settings on the fly so that you attain the much-desired flexibility.
The Razer DeathAdder Elite has the Razer’s Synapse software which allows all the seven buttons to be programmed. The Elite has the 5G Optical Sensor at the bottom which provides a DPI that can extend from 100 to 16,000 in only 100 DPI steps. This feature assures you of 99.4% accuracy in resolution and a tracking speed of up to 450 inches per second. The G403 mouse can send 1000 reports within a second. The different arrays of LED colors can be programmed to show your different signals from the over 16.8 million options. Logitech Gaming Software is programmable to adjust even the lights on the scroll and the logo.
The Elite has a 7-foot cable that has a gold plated USB connector and its flexibility ensures there is no distraction while gaming. The mouse is about 105g which is an advantage to avoid getting snagged during a game. Logitech G403 has a special feature of removable 10g load that can be removed to make it 87g if you prefer a lighter mouse to heavier ones. The G403 is light and it gives you the plastic feel that can allow you to use it even in an office.
The Elite allows you to do normal mouse functions on your PC because it does not have to be configured on installation. It is compatible with cloud storage and you can update the software and the profiles on your gaming progress. You can configure the mouse's sensitivity, polling acceleration, configure the RGB lighting and calibrate the mouse in all manners. The G403 is sensitive and compatible with a PC also without necessarily being configured. It is highly sensitive and its ability to work in both Windows and Mac gives you convenience.
The two mice are almost similar in properties and performance but the Razer DeathAdder Elite carries the day. He Elite is more stylish, and it exemplifies the gaming experience. The G403 falls short of a vital property of durability because 20 million clicks are quite low compared to 50 million clicks for the Elite. I would go for the Elite to ensure all the qualities like flexibility and longevity are mine.
