I treat all my electronics well. The feel of DA is delicious, I leave my hand on it even when im not clicking cause i like rubbing it. I move my mouse in a 5 cm diameter circle.
Just bought a death adder on the 7/10. Really liking it. Price DA 44 vs G400s 45. most reviews say the DA and G400s are about equal. HOWEVER they dont mention the DA is usually twice the price.
I usually go for value, and would go for G400s based on quality (20 million clicks, 3 yr warranty, 8 programmable buttons, 9/10 quality performance, 6/10 ergonomics) HOWEVER in this case i went for DA (10/10 performance, lighter, braided cord, 10 mil clicks, 2 yr.
The braided cable means ibm thinkpad t40 user manual pdf u will find it easy to tuck the cable away in your small space. The complaints about the DA I have taken with a grain of salt.
Most of the complainers treat their mouse shit, like dropping it, throwing it, mangling the cord, biting it. If your a responsible adult, and do not punch it/slam it down every time u lose a match, i predict it will last AT LEAST 2.5 years.
The logitech maybe a year longer. I suggest you make a mousepad. I used a coloured manila cardboard folder and sticky taped it to the table. Protects the table, the feet of the mouse, does not take up space nor move.
I hope i have helped. Regards A responsible adult who doesnt like spending money and thoroughly researched the DA vs G400s for 5 days.
