Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, announced that its immensely popular DeathAdder mouse is upgraded and set for launch.
Originally released in 2006, the Razer DeathAdder has become legendary for its combination of ergonomics and precision. It remains the world’s best-selling gaming mouse, used by countless pro gamers in the circuit as their preferred weapon of annihilation.
The new Razer DeathAdder’s optical sensor was upgraded from 3.5G to a cutting-edge 4G infrared sensor with improved performance and precision. It is the world’s most powerful optical sensor, achieving up to 6400 dpi resolution without sacrificing the natural tracking feel of an optical sensor or yielding the robotic sensation of a comparable laser option.
The iconic right-handed ergonomic shape that gamers have come to love in the DeathAdder has been retained; however, it has been further enhanced with built-in textured rubber side grips for better mouse control and grip.
Like its predecessor, the new Razer DeathAdder will feature Synapse 2.0 support for effortless synching of settings and profiles automatically with the cloud. Razer Synapse 2.0 is an innovative proprietary software that intuitively functions as the Razer DeathAdder’s brain – automatically syncing the gaming mouse to a remote server to download driver and firmware updates, as well as save individual game settings.
“We didn’t want to fix anything that wasn’t broken,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “We focused instead on enhancing and optimizing the proven merits of the Razer DeathAdder, utilizing next generation technologies and further ergonomics tweaks to make a perfect gaming mouse even better.”

Microsoft introduced a new line of wireless mice a variety of colors and shapes at a recent open house.
The Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 brings style to life on-the-go. It uses Microsoft’s BlueTrack Technology which allows the mouse to work on any surface – from the granite kitchen counter to the living room carpet. BlueTrack is also extremely durable and continues to work exceptionally well even when dirt or dust get stuck inside the sensor. The portable mouse comes in this year’s hottest colors with bold hues pulled straight from the runway including teal blue, berry pink, lime green, graphite and white. It also has a snap-in Nano transceiver so small it can remain plugged in to the computer while traveling and it’s available for $39.95.
The Arc Mouse is just as fashionable as it is functional with a design shaped like a crescent moon it folds closed to reduce in size by almost half, giving consumers the comfort of a full-sized mouse with the portability of a notebook mouse. Arc also includes a stylish micro transceiver that you can leave right in your computer and it’s available in six colors – white, purple, green, blue, red or black. It’s available for $49.95.
The Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000 is Microsoft’s thinnest keyboard ever! Microsoft Hardware’s Industrial Design team ensured that the keyboard didn’t sacrifice on style or comfort and created a product to match the design tenants of compact, clean and refined. As a result, the keyboard is just a few millimeters thick and it uses a Comfort Curve design for a more ergonomic typing experience over the straight keyboard layout of notebook computers. It also has a standalone Bluetooth Number Pad that can be used with the keyboard or by itself to increase productivity. It is available for $89.95.
