The mercury white Razer DeathAdder Essential 6400 DPI gaming mouse has dropped to $19.99 at Amazon. We shared a deal on this mouse nearly a year ago when it first dropped from a regular price around $50 to a new low of $30. It has been mostly selling for around that $30 price since, with a few jumps back up to $50. Today is the first time we've ever seen it drop to $20 before. The price is also $10 better than the Black version of the mouse, and it's rare that an off-color version would be less expensive than the default color.
The DeathAdder mouse uses a high-precision 6,400 DPI optical sensor. This is an adjustable sensor for you to find the right amount of sensitivity. You can even adjust it on the fly if you find it's too sensitive while playing your favorite game or doing some precision creative work in Photoshop. The mouse has a dedicated button for that.
The rubberized scroll wheel provides maximum accuracy. It has small, tactile bumps that help increase your grip and give you more control while you're using it. The mouse has five fully programmable buttons. You decide what the buttons do, and that also means reprogramming the DPI adjustment button if you want to. Use Razer's software to setup some complicated macros, too.
The durable mechanical switches are engineered to last for up to 10 million clicks. So you'll probably run out steam before this mouse does. And if not, Razer backs it up with a two-year warranty.
