Thanks! I ordered this instead based on the reviews that the Basilisk is heavier and has a drop-off on the right side

Review regarding surrounding info to razer just to use the mouse sounds scary.

The tradeoff is a bit....off here
I don't plan to install it and just run it out of box. My understanding is you only need to install it and surrender info if you want to customize the buttons/behavior, which these entry level ones wouldn't benefit much from (hopefully the games will recognize them as button 4 and button 5 without any custom software)

Only problem I have with Deathadder is the double click issue which develops soon after warranty ended

I picked up the Elite for $22.99 on 3/22 (Amazon price matched Best Buy). Odd that it doesn't show up in the price history. Maybe it was one of those add-to-cart-and-discount deals? Not seeing a discount on my invoice though either.

You also need to install the software to customize the RGB lights. Otherwise by default, it cycles thru all the colors. Also for the basilisk, it has a custom thumb trigger button in front of the back and forward buttons. You can program it to any specific action. This button by default doesn't work if you don't install the software.

I have both the not essential version of the basilisk and death adder. Both are great but I prefer the basilisk because it's more egornomic and has that custom programmable button many ppl use for sniper trigger button in games.

I am in the market for a new mouse. Unfortunately, no more Razer for me. Used to be a fan of them and one of their refurb mice (forgot the model name) lasted for almost 7 years before the left click button started getting stuck. Decided to get a Deathadder Elite after that and the scrolling wheel started squeaking after less than 8 months of use. Was not even gaming in my computer with it. Razer has become such a joke.
