DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed: DeathAdder V2 and Orochi V2 had a child

Razer crosses DeathAdder V2 (test) and Orochi V2. The result is a battery-powered right-handed mouse with a replaceable shell that can be interpreted more or less as a stripped-down DeathAdder V2 Pro. However, two additional keys next to the left mouse button are unusual.

Somewhere between V2 and V2 Pro

The two buttons are more reminiscent of Logitech’s G502 series, but in 2009 there was actually a Razer Mamba with identical button placement. Since then, Razer has not used the design anymore, now it is returning with the fifth DeathAdder in the current mouse lineup – apart from the models mentioned, there is also the DeathAdder V2 Mini (test) and the DeathAdder Essential. The latest variant of the Palm Grip Shooter mouse is roughly on par with the classic V2, but unlike this one does not have Razer’s best sensor, does without RGB LEDs, offers a weaker internal memory and no rubberized edges.

In return, it receives the radio technology of the Pro version, which – at least according to the recommended retail price – is significantly more expensive. However, it is currently listed in the price comparison for around 90 euros; the X HyperSpeed ​​starts at around 70 euros. The most striking difference in this comparison can be found in the power supply: While the DeathAdder V2 Pro has a built-in battery and can be charged by cable or charging station, Razer uses a battery compartment for either AA or AAA batteries in the new DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed. Cells.

    With an alkaline AA battery, the mouse has a running time of around 230 hours with 2.4 GHz radio; the change to the latency-afflicted Bluetooth connection enables even more than 600 hours. However, a lithium battery is recommended, which on the one hand offers even longer runtimes and on the other hand has a lower mass. Switching to an AAA cell also reduces the weight, which is between 86 and 103 grams, depending on the equipment. The comparison to the Orochi V2 is accordingly easy, but the exchangeable and customizable upper cover is also reminiscent of the small fingertip grip mouse. In contrast to the mouse itself, the colorfully printed shells are not yet available, according to Razer, the “shortly” change.

    The sensor of the DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed, however, seems a little strange: Razer does not speak of the “state-of-the-art optical 5G sensor“. Normally, this indicates PixArts PMW-3389, but the performance data does not match this. Instead, it is presumably the PAW-3319, which is most likely a stripped-down version of the PMW-3359 built into the DeathAdder V2 Mini. Be that as it may – the specifications provide a level of precision that is absolutely sufficient even for shooters. For the primary buttons, Razer relies on the second generation of its own opto-mechanical switches.
