DA's buttons. 3, 4 and 5

They do not work when you try and assign them ingame to any game i tested including Counter-Strike: Source.
I tryed in XP and Vista.
The only thing you can do is:

1 Install the mouse+software (restart PC)
2 Setup as you like it best (including DPI/Hz etc) (restart PC after just in case)
3 uninstall razer software (restart PC)
4 Have fun

The boring part is that you can't change DPI etc untill you reinstall the software.

I just sent another e-mail related to problems with my razer producs ALL of them cheap worthless junk in comparison to other products of the same price on the market.

Razer producs i own are:

Deathadder ( got two actualy both have the issue explained above)
Lachesis (lmao it won't stay still even on the eXactMat just keeps jumping around)
Lycosa (rubber keys get pealed off in less then a week and i only play 3 to 5 hours a day 5 days a week not to mention that the keyboard is noisy and has a very slow response due to the dmn key that are hard to press down you almost have to hit them. Great for typing test and get a nostalgic fealing of the old typewriters)
Piranha (not very comfortable and the mic mute button is loose so you got to make sure nothing touches it wile you chat)

I am uterly disapointed at deathadder and am going to start making videos of my gear and post it on youtube.

Doomsday i miss my MX-518....the best mousey Everr!! DeathAdder is good too but only cooler looking!

edit: Oh and i think Razer's Goliathus Mouse Mat is good. i Like mats alot more than pads. Mats feel better and more controlling!

Rob Williams I'll be honest in saying I'm not a huge fan of Razer's mice, but it's nothing against the products themselves... I've just become so comfortable with Logitech's designs that I've stuck with them. The Habu was a little weird in getting used to, but it was fine for the most part. About a year after using it, I had big enough issues (sporadic bouts of severe loss of tracking-ability), so I went back to a Logitech offering. I'm using some Gigabyte mouse at the moment and it's serving the purpose. For the gaming/benchmarking machine, I'm using Gigabyte's GM-M8000 and it's also pretty good. It's a little bulky, but it's comfortable once you get used to it.

I am very, very tempted to go wireless though, so thanks for all the information Kougar. The room I'm in is so embarrassingly small, and behind my desk are huge piles of cables, so I'm always getting both the mouse and keyboard caught up in them. If I can rid even those cables, the situation would be vastly improved.

Kougar I think it was the Death Adder, I don't remember it was just a display unit but I wasn't keen on it.

Did some more research, I got my Microsoft mice mixed up. Wired Explorer mice go up to 4.0, wireless up to 2.0... and ironically the wireless version had the highest DPI, but both could handle up to 6,000 images a second and track up to 36 inches per second. Considering the DPI is 400, I assume those other specs are why it never spins out or had tracking issues. The wired version had a slightly lower DPI rating.

Looks like the Wireless Optical Mouse 5000 is the replacement mouse for what I have... same 6,000 imagers per sec / 36 lateral inches per sec but with a 1,000 DPI and suppoedly even better battery life. Looks like an identical body, if so I half expect I could switch the cover plates and turn it into a metallic/cobalt blue instead of the single titanium color they come in. There's an identical mouse with a different (cheaper) body styling, the one I'm referring to is right-handed.

It's an old model mouse, I've not tried the newer one (2.0 as opposed to 4.0). I wasn't that impressed with Razer's mice, but I'm keeping a look out for a more gamer oriented mouse... not sure I like the Razer/Microsoft hybrid Habu either but after eyeing your reviews I can say it is NOT simply a rebadged mouse. The internals are different, although I'd have loved to see some photos of the guts just to get an idea of what was changed.

The wireless has never seemed to be an issue with it, but the hassle of placing the base station in just the right spots where I can get reception makes it almost as bad as a wired mouse. Going wireless just never gets rid of all the wires... I guess I shouldn't be surprised though, the base station came with the keyboard and the mouse was separate... by simple curiosity I discovered the mouse worked on the keyboard's receiver so I was able to avoid using two wireless base stations.

The tracking has been excellent, I've never had "spinouts" or other issues old optical mice suffer from and the thing is quite sensitive. There is a software option that they call "Precision Booster" that mirrors the effect of changing the DPI, you can key a button on the mouse to drop/toggle the movement amount to any % of the orignal.

Hmm, I've only been using mine for three years or so, and since I game a couple hours a day when not extremely busy that oughta be saying something. The only thing on it that shows the age are the skid feet (worn them down) and the rubber-coated sides that I've rubbed off. The rest of the mouse looks just like new.

It's one of these, but with the deep Metallic Blue top. I've thought about trying a new mouse, but there are some advantages to going wireless I've not wanted to give up, and mice only seem to be getting more expensive.

The biggest issue with this mouse would have to be none of that modern on-the-fly DPI adjusting, so using automatic weapons is great, but using a sniper rifle for pinhead precision shooting is something else altogether. That more than anything else will probably get me to upgrade my mouse soon.

I didn't quite have that happen with my MX518, but I found it was VERY difficult to keep the surface of that one clean. Dirt just clung to it, especially from your fingers. I always had to unplug it and go clean it in the kitchen.

Come to think of it, I think I've had a beef with just about every mouse I've ever touched. I recently upgraded from a Logitech G5, because the tracking was starting to go, and the braided cable was also getting frayed. I think nowadays, you're good if you get at least a year out of your mouse, haha.

I can't see it to be honest... Razer likely wouldn't overlook something like that, given their products are to be used by frantic gamers. I wish I could say the same about the mouse I'm using on this PC... the top is discolored either because of sweat or something from rubbing my fingers on it (some generic Gigabyte mouse).
