Razer Reveals DeathAdder Black USB Gaming Mouse

Razer's specialty is gaming mice. The company kicked things off with a bang years ago by launching the BoomSlang, and at this point, they've created more mice than we care to count. This week, they're launching yet another new mousing device in the DeathAdder Black Edition. It's an update to the original DeathAdder, which was actually launched way back in 2006 (if you can believe it!). Five years later, it's time for an update. And the Black Edition is that update.

Razer is releasing this model as a commemoration of this anniversary, with the new model simplifying the design with a non-slip rubber side, complete black finish, 3500dpi 3.5G infrared sensor, 1000hz Ultrapolling with 1ms response time, 5 Hypereponse buttons, and On-the-Fly sensitivity adjustment. It'll sell for $59.99 when it ships worldwide next month, and for those in need of a wireless option, you'll need to look somewhere else; this one ships with a 7ft. USB connector.
