Razer trots out mildly overhauled DeathAdder Black Edition USB gaming mouse
When you've got a good thing rolling, why stop? That's the mantra applied to Razer's latest, which is actually the third DeathAdder to be released. You may remember the original slinking out way back in 2006, with the southpaws in attendance finally getting one of their own in March of last year. Today, in order to celebrate the device's Wood Anniversary, Razer's loosing the USB-connected DeathAdder Black Edition. For all intents and purposes, this is the same DeathAdder that we came to love last decade, but with an ever-so-slightly tweaked design that adds non-slip rubber sides and an all-black finish. It'll ship globally next month for $59.99 / €59.99, with orders being taken right... about.. now.

Introducing the Razer™ DeathAdder Black Edition – A Tribute to your Gaming Domination

Razer Launches Special All-Black Version of the DeathAdder

Carlsbad, Calif. – Jan. 27th, 2011 – In 2006, the world of gaming was taken by storm when the Razer DeathAdder was unleashed. Those who wielded it crushed their opponents with ease, and it became synonymous with gaming excellence. Now, five years on, the DeathAdder is used by more professional gamers than any other gaming mouse, a testament to its prowess in securing them legendary status in the history of competitive gaming. Razer released the Black Edition as a commemoration of this glorious collaboration between every single gamer and their never-failing, trusty DeathAdder.

"The DeathAdder legacy is something we're immensely proud of here at Razer," said Min-Liang Tan, CEO and Creative Director, Razer. "We set out five years ago to create the most ergonomically perfect mouse; conducting extensive research which spanned thousands of simulations and models. We even obsessed down to a micro-angle of the profile's curvature. The result is a mouse that becomes an extension of the gamer's hand, the ultimate device for gaming precision. We're releasing the DeathAdder Black Edition to celebrate every gamer's victory and every satisfaction thanks to its exceptionally precise design."

The Black Edition simplifies the DeathAdder's form factor design with new non-slip rubber sides for the most comfortable grip and best handling over extended gaming periods. Its complete-black finish is an aesthetic sight to behold, and a gamer's show of loyalty to a legacy of ownage.
