DeathAdder V3 Pro review: Razer’s most ergonomic ultralight mouse

Editor rating: 5 out of 5

Ergonomics

This new DeathAdder preserves the essence of the series, but it is worth noting some aesthetic and practical changes. We can see that the main buttons are less flared at the tip, the wheel has been raised to better fall below the index finger, and the Razer logo is no longer backlit. Little changes here and there losing about 25g, all the same! — to the mouse that drops to 64 g in the white version (and 63 g in the black version). So it can be described as an ultralight mouse, in the same way as a Logitech G Pro X Superlight or Viper V2 Pro.

There are also many similarities with the latter in terms of design. The DeathAdder is completely made of smooth plastic, which is not ideal for a good grip on the mouse. However, as with the Viper, the manufacturer has included anti-slip stickers to add to the edges and main buttons if necessary, without this really affecting the final weight. Therefore, the grip is much better and the fingers no longer slip in case of sudden movements. Keep in mind, however, that this mouse is usually reserved for right-handers.

Non-slip stickers are provided in the box.

If we can criticize the Viper for not being very ergonomic due to its relatively flat format, the DeathAdder V3 Pro is much more pleasant from this point of view since it is more curved and slightly beveled to marry the palm of the hand. The result is greater comfort, at the cost of a few extra grams, especially for players who use the palm grip (palm grip), but it’s obviously a matter of taste and preference.

The main buttons have been replaced by Razer’s new 3rd generation optical switches that ensure speed of execution and high precision. Its lifespan is guaranteed for 90 million clicks. If the secondary buttons obviously don’t benefit from the same treatment, they are surprisingly reactive and well anchored to the helmet. Otherwise, we will find another button on the wheel and one under the mouse, nothing more.

Secondary buttons are very effective.

The wheel is very basic: its notches are well marked and the mouse does not offer fluid or free scrolling. Therefore, it is mainly intended for video games and cannot be really effective in office automation. This is certainly not its main use, but other models like the Basilisk V3 are much more versatile (and heavier, remember).

Free scrolling is absent on this wheel.

A “power” button located below the mouse allows you to turn it off. It also acts as a sensitivity switch to increase levels (by five in number), but admittedly this position isn’t very practical if you want to change sensitivity during gameplay.
The PTFE pads arranged around it guarantee a good glide on the carpet.

For connectivity, Bluetooth is no longer available. If it might be useful for office use or when you want to use your mouse on another computer on the go, it’s obviously not recommended for gaming use and its absence doesn’t strike us as worrying. 2.4GHz Hyperspeed Receiver offers much more suitable tiny latency. Razer provides a braided USB-C charging cable with an adapter for the receiver; If the battery runs out, you can switch from wireless to wired connection in a few seconds. The autonomy goes in any case according to the manufacturer from 70 hours of the old version to 90 hours, enough to play a good number of games before plugging it in.
