Razer’s DeathAdder series continues with the DeathAdder V3 Pro, a wireless gaming mouse that is light and small. Like its predecessors, this mouse is made for the right hand and works best with larger hands. This model is different from the ones that came before it because it has a slightly different shape and is a lot lighter. It also has some big improvements under the hood, like a new sensor, a new generation of optical switches, and a longer-lasting battery.
Even though it is much lighter than previous versions, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro feels very sturdy. When you shake the mouse, it doesn’t make any rattling noises, and the click buttons are very stable. Still, if you press hard enough on the bottom panel, it will bend, and if you squeeze hard enough on the plastic sides of the mouse, you can make the side buttons work. But neither of these small problems should get in the way of regular use.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro looks a lot like its predecessors, but Razer has made a few small changes to the shape and taken away the RGB lighting and two CPI buttons below the scroll wheel. This version also has separate left-click and right-click buttons, which weren’t there in earlier versions.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro is easy to use with your right hand and has a tall shape that works well for a palm or claw grip. Razer made a few small changes to the shape of this DeathAdder, so it feels very different in your hand than other DeathAdders. This version’s edges aren’t as wide at the front, and the grooves on both the left- and right-click buttons aren’t as deep. The bump on the palm rest has also been moved slightly toward the inside edge, and the side buttons are now a bit higher on the body.
With a 1000Hz polling rate, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro is said to have a battery life of up to 90 hours of constant use. You can also buy a separate “HyperPolling” receiver from Razer that lets you increase the polling rate to 4000Hz. If you use this receiver with a polling rate of 4000hz, the battery should only last about 24 hours.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro has great mouse feet with rounded edges. They move smoothly on both hard and soft mousepads and directly on desks, but not as smoothly as the Razer Viper V2 pro’s feet.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro can have almost all of its buttons reprogrammed, except for the button on the bottom, which is used to turn the mouse on and off and switch between its five CPI settings. Also, one button should always be set as the primary click button. You can also program a second set of inputs using the Hypershift button. Razer’s Gen-3 optical switches are used in the left and right click buttons, which can handle up to 90 million clicks.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro has a click latency that is both very low and very consistent. It feels very responsive when playing any type of game, and it works well for both casual and competitive play.
The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro can be set to 125Hz, 500Hz, or 1000Hz for its polling rate. Razer’s website also has a separate “HyperPolling” receiver that can be bought on its own. You can increase the polling rate to 4000Hz with this extra receiver. But these tests were done without this receiver and with a 1000Hz polling rate.
The mouse wheel on the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro feels soft and quiet, and it has small, well-defined steps. The middle click also feels good and doesn’t accidentally work while you’re scrolling.
3. Operating system and software
In general, the Synapse 3 software from Razer is very good. It’s set up well and isn’t too hard to use. You can change the CPI, lift-off distance, surface calibration, and power settings, among other things. But, like the software options from other big companies, this software has been criticized by the wider community. During testing, there were no problems with this mouse. However, many online users complain that this software needs to be updated often and uses too many system resources, among other things. If you’d rather use lighter software or none at all, this one might be too much for you.
Razer’s popular DeathAdder series keeps going with the DeathAdder V3 Pro. This mouse is better than the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro in a number of ways, such as having a newer sensor, the latest generation of Razer’s optical switches, and a longer battery life. This version is also a lot less heavy. But it’s important to note that Razer changed the shape of this version, and it feels different in the hand than earlier DeathAdder models. This mouse is great for gaming, just like Razer’s other expensive flagship product, the Razer Viper V2 Pro. The main difference between this mouse and the Viper V2 Pro is that this mouse is made for people with larger hands and a palm or claw grip, while the Viper V2 Pro is made for people with smaller hands and a claw grip. The Viper V2 Pro, on the other hand, has a shape that works well for a wider range of hand sizes and a claw or fingertip grip.
