Do you wish your gaming mouse was a little smaller? In our review of Razor DeathAdder V2, we had those exact ideas. The seller announced this wish with the Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini announced today. The gaming mouse takes the desirable shape of the Deathadder V2 and shrinks it into smaller hands and a smaller budget-friendly bundle.
At $ 50, the DeathAdder V2 Mini is $ 20 cheaper than its larger counterpart. It is aimed at players with small to medium hands, which Razor reports that it is 6.7 inches / 17 cm long and 3.3 inches / 8.5 cm wide, and even throws the Razor mouse grip bar for dramatic effect. . However, it will not be the best gaming mouse for those looking for high-end sensor specs.
As a reduced version of DeathAdder 2D (which measures 5 x 2.43 x 1.68 inches), the DeathAdder V2 Mini measures 4.50 x 2.20 x 1.52 inches. The biggest difference in length. Our focus in the review is also small compared to other small-wire mice, such as the Rocket Con Pure Ultra (4.53 x 2.76 x 1.54 in) and the Rito Nadix (4.9 x 3.0 x 1.6 in). Our review of the Deathadder V2 began to make the mouse feel too big for a few hands, so we definitely see room for a smaller mouse like the DeathAdder V2 Mini.
Razor states that the DeathAdder V2 Mini can work with all types of grips, but is particularly suited to palm grips and works well with clutch grip. I have a long arm for a woman of my size (about 7.5 inches), so the fist on the DeathAdder V2 Mini was not perfect for me. The pointer and middle finger hung on the edge. I finally fell back on the claw grip, as my fingers felt the cursor and center well supported by the mouse hump, but my other two fingers were left to drag on my RGB mouse pad.
The DeathAdder V2 was actually a lighter mouse at 2.88 ounces, and the DeathAdder 2D Mini is 2.24 ounces lighter. But despite having smaller measurements than the Razor Viper Mini, the DeathAdder V2 Mini is heavier (2.24 oz vs. 2.08 oz). However, with no holes in its chassis, the latest Razor Mouse can compete with Honeycomb-style mice, such as the 2.22-ounce HK Gaming Mira-M. The Deathadder 2D Mini Mini is lighter than the Rokkot Kon Pure Ultra (2.33 oz), and is also suitable for small hands, as well as the Rytaro Nadix (3.84 oz).
But the DeathAdder V2 Mini not only has a smaller build than the DeathAdder V2, and its specs are much more compact. You still get a razor speedflex braided cable that curves like a fab. But instead of 8 programmable buttons, you will only get 6, and there is only one RGB area compared to the two big mouse areas. The DeathAdder V2 Mini sensor is also no less powerful than the original DeathAdder 2D sensor. But remember that you pay less for this mouse, which also comes with a ribbon handle that the Razor sells separately for $ 10.
Design and comfort
In addition to its compact design, the DeathAdder V2 Mini has a familiar mouse shape that is easy to modify (especially if you’ve used DeathAdder V2 or any other DeathAdder). The right and left buttons are well placed, but have fine grooves for the fingers, and the body of the mouse curves exactly to the right hand thumb. Gentle bending to the right may cause the ring to clasp and use pinky fingers if your hand is small enough for the Mini.
Like the DeathAdder V2, the DeathAdder V2 Mini has an original design, but a design that works. You get 6 programmable buttons: left and right click, two side buttons, scroll wheel (up, down and in) and CPI buttons to the south of the scroll wheel. The side buttons are easily accessible, thanks to the mouse’s curves, but they are stable and require too much force to operate.
Meanwhile, accessing the CPI button will be easier if you have small hands that Razer has designed for this mouse. However, I miss having a CPI up and down button instead of a cycling button for 5 settings (programmed through software). It is a luxury, Deathhead V2 has over its smaller counterpart. There is also no CPI indicator, like typical colors representing specific settings without software download.
If you haven’t noticed the benefits of PTFE before, the Deathadder V2 Mini Feet will change. The generous use of mouse material helps it slide easily, meaning that your hands and arms work less. And it’s not like the 2.24-ounce peripheral device was hard to push at first.
The Scroll Wheel of the DeathAdar 2D Mini is covered with horizontal rows of raised dots, which I worry will worsen over time, especially with violent games. It does not provide a fast scrolling experience but it provides an easy way to do precise scrolling.
If you are going to use a wired mouse, the razor’s Speedflex cable is one of the best options. This braided cable has a smooth feel and is more flexible than rigid cables. It easily slips on my desk when necessary and does not travel or gets stuck on anything, even if it hangs randomly.

Some people will be happy to see that the DeathAdder V2 limits RGB lighting to one area. It is not uncommon for the razor to refer to its snake logo under the palm of the hand as the preferred RGB spot. This adds the right amount of RGB,
