Razer Transformers 3 DeathAdder Megatron Gaming Mouse Review: Page 3 of 5

The Transformers Collector’s Edition for the Razer DeathAdder includes Megatron, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Shockwave. This mouse is definitely one of their more well-known ones and I can’t wait to see what comes inside. So, for now let’s take a look at what comes with the Razer Transformers 3 Razer DeathAdder Megatron. By Shane N.

DeathAdder Interface

The software interface for the Razer DeathAdder is simple and easy to use. There is no CD included for the GUI but you can easily download it from their main website. They have preset DPI settings of 450, 900, 1800, and 3500. Polling rates of 125Hz, 500Hz, and 1000Hz and 5 customizable profiles. There are 2 extra customizable buttons on the left side of the mouse in addition to the three standard buttons on the top of the mouse. You can also change the function of the scroll wheel if you want to. And there are light options for the mouse if you desire the mouse lights to be lit up or just totally off.

The Sensitivity and Advanced Sensitivity tabs are for customizing the DeathAdder even further. For the Sensitivity Tab, you can adjust the sensitivity from 1 to 10 with varying levels, change the scroll speed, double click speed, and On-The-Fly sensitivity. For the Advanced Sensitivity Tab, you can adjust the speed for X and Y axis, windows pointer, and acceleration. These tabs are very beneficial to gamers who want to customize their mouse specifically for them. I really liked the benefits from using both tabs during gaming and casual use. The only problem I had is that they used a scale of 1 to 10 for their sensitivity. I am usually use to setting an exact DPI setting like maybe 2100 DPI or setting X axis to 1800 DPI and Y axis to 2200 DPI. Getting use to the 1 through 10 was a little troublesome but once I got the hang of it the rest was easy.

When creating specific macros for the 2 extra customizable buttons, you have to select Advanced Functions and side menu will pop up with instructions on how to create a macro. You can make the mouse button perform one single key or a sequence keys depending on what task you want it perform. They also have some drop down menus for Basic Commands, Additional Commands, and Media Commands. I highly recommend using the Insert Delay since a lot of sequences I created for the macros would be unfinished or would be performed too fast which would induce an error.
