    I wield my original DeathAdder (about 3 years now) and its still a great mouse. It has taken many lives.

    Sorta OT (saw "right handed" in topic) but am I the only left handed person thats been using a right hander mouse my entire life? I just started off that way and it stayed that way.

    My personal favorite mouse. I don't game much but even for desktop use it's great.

    Why exactly is it so popular? I never understood.

    There are better-specced, cheaper, more comfortable mice around. The Razer isn't bad, but is it just so popular due to the name and it being sold everywhere?

    St1ckM4n well, that's very subjective. Coming from over half a dozen MS and Logitech mice, I found the Razer the best for me in the past couple of years or so (I have bought 3 of them already, two in use, the third got a damaged click button after ~1 year of heavy use).

    Or you can just say they look cool =)
  8. LOL..

    I owned an original boomslang (in a round tin) and that was the last Razer worth owning. None of the newer Razer mice are above par & are moving backwards in terms of features and use.

    Who would want to own ANY razer mouse with Synapse 2.0..? DRM for a mouse.. no thank you, I'll take one with on-board memory..

    Damn it, I have the left handed edition, sure hope they bring out a left handed edition of this updated version.
