Razer’s classic DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse drops to $40 on Amazon

Razer’s classic DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse becomes a bit more affordable as it drops from $70 down to $40 on Amazon. An excellent and affordable pairing for any esports or competitive gamer, we awarded the Razer DeathAdder Elite with official Digital Trends Recommended Product status when we tested it two years ago. Featuring a sturdy construction, responsive mechanical buttons, and a bit of RGB love, you can’t go wrong with the DeathAdder Elite — especially at this sale price.

The DeathAdder Elite packs an impressive 16,000 DPI optical sensor with the ability to track at 450 inches per second (IPS), so it won’t be leaving you behind during an intense firefight or a mentally exhausting game of Minesweeper. Featuring Razer’s mechanical gaming switches, designed by Omron, the mouse is rated to last for up to 50 million clicks, while providing a clicky tactile sensating that we found quite attractive during our initial review.

Beyond the mouse’s impressive internals, the overall ergonomic grip and design of the DeathAdder Elite provide a subdued but sleek styling. Lovers of RGB lighting won’t be left out in the cold either with support for Razer’s Chroma standard — allowing your mouse’s lighting to react to in-game events. Even if your game doesn’t happen to support Chroma, you can customize this mouse with four different lighting modes including spectrum cycling, color breathing, static lighting, and reactive lighting that responds to the mouse’s actions.

Downloading Razer’s supported Synapse software lets you take the DeathAdder Elite to the next level with customizable lighting profiles, performance customization, and custom button mapping — even add in your favorite macros for quick actions while you’re in the game. If you are feeling extremely particular, you can also use Razer’s software to dive into heat maps and other usage data about your specific mouse.

Other noteworthy inclusions with the DeathAdder Elite include seven independently programmable switches, a gaming-grade tactile scroll wheel with improved grip, and a seven-foot braided fiber cable. Best of all, the mouse consists of a two-year warranty from Razer to protect you in case anything happens to go wrong. If you’ve been eyeing the Razer DeathAdder Elite, or just need a new gaming mouse, now is a fantastic time to head over to Amazon before the deal ends.

Insane deal knocks $900 off the Razer Blade 17 gaming laptop
Razer Blade 17 on a table.

Razer is known for making some of the best laptops in the market, although they're equally well-known for being a high-end brand that is often quite expensive. Even so, if you're looking for a unique laptop, Razer is probably where you'd look, and in this case, if you want one of the best 17-inch gaming laptops, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than the Razer Blade 17. Of course, it does come at a pretty penny, although Razer is running a great deal right now that discounts the Blade 17 down to $2,300 rather than the usual $3,200, a significant 28% discount.

Why you should buy the Razer Blade 17
Probably one of the first things you'll want to know about this Razer Blade 17 is what sort of GPU it runs, and we're happy to report that you'll find the relatively powerful RTX 3070 Ti under the hood. That's a card that can provide reasonably good 4k performance, which is good because the Blade 17 comes with a gorgeous 17-inch 2k resolution panel. As such, the RTX 3070Ti will easily run most games on high resolution and graphical settings without much issue. The panel also has a very impressive 240Hz refresh rate, which means that if you're going to be playing competitive or action-packed games where each frame counts, you can get some high refresh rates from the RTX 3070 Ti, with a few graphical compromises, of course.

This Razer 27-inch QHD gaming monitor just got a massive discount
Playing a game on the Razer Raptor gaming monitor.

Razer has a reputation for making some of the best gaming laptops and peripherals on the market and is often viewed as the high-end equivalent of the gaming market, in the same vein as Apple or Mercedes. What you may not know is that Razer also makes high-end gaming monitors, and the Razer Raptor 27 is an excellent example of it, as it has a lot of great features under the hood that any gamer would love. While it usually comes at the steep cost of $800, Razer is offering a massive discount on it of %50, meaning you can grab the Raptor 27 for just $400, which is a steal.

Why you should buy the Razer Raptor 27
Right off the bat, one of the things that let the Raptor 27 compete with the best gaming monitors is the impressive 165Hz refresh rate at 1440p resolution. That means you get a lot of room to adjust whether you want a higher resolution for single-layer games or a higher refresh rate for multiplayer and action-packed games where each frame counts. Or, if you have one of the best GPUs right now, such as the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX, you can easily push both the refresh rate and resolution to their limits, even on the highest graphical settings.
