Razer Deathadder App For Mac

– I wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary, but was so impressed within the first few minutes of use that I thought the experience was worth sharing. The Good Like virtually all USB mice, it was functional the moment it was plugged into the Mac, and worked perfectly well in the Mac OS. The DeathAdder is extremely accurate. I’m using it on a table-cloth (technically a bed sheet, but it’s a long story), full of wrinkles and creases. Not an ideal surface, yet I quickly realized I was getting more accurate tracking than my Logitech which has the benefit of a real mouse pad.

A little PhotoShop work confirmed this. I really don’t think I could go back. The wheel’s precisely calibrated. It’s tight (unlike the logitechs which have always had some play in movement), and there aren’t any anomolies. No dead spots in the wheel, and you always get exactly 1 movement per click.

Trying to nudge the wheel forward or backward (without actually clicking it) didn’t cause scrolling. It’s very precise. I installed the Mac software (downloaded from the site).

I plan to get the Mac edition of the DeathAdder to play with. (All the Apple mice are still in the factory cellophane -- ready to ship with the Mac when I sell it on eBay.) I have the Lachesis which I keep forgetting to try under Vista 64. The Razer app provides those options under 'Advanced Functions' for each of those buttons. Select them and click on Apply, OK. Don't need to quit the App or restart Mac. Razer's DeathAdder for Mac is, unsurprisingly, nearly identical to the standard DeathAdder, the only real difference being that the pulsing Razer logo and the scroll wheel glows white instead of blue.

The best Twitter apps for Mac The good news is that the official Twitter app for Mac is not the only Twitter app for Mac. There are a couple alternatives in the Mac App Store that will in some ways provide a better experience, albeit with some limitations, and at a cost too. Top app for android. The app is accessible with a quick swipe from the top of your screen, and, better yet, functions as a convenient place for storing quick notes, recent files, and clipboard information. A simple Mac app designed to make uploading images and screenshots to Imgur quick and effortless, as recommended by someone on Reddit. The application will listen for new screenshots taken by the built-in screenshot functionality of OS X.

Here’s what it looks like. RazerDeathAdder software on Mac OS X (installed in /Applications). Click on the image above to see the larger version. Unfortunately, the software required a restart after installation (one of the few things that actually needs the Mac to restart). However, it installed seemlessly, and even added an easy-to-find-uninstaller in Applications/Utilities. I opened up all the options for the screenshot. It has a bit of a cluttered feel to it, but all the options are there.

Changing the Polling Rate caused the mouse to freeze for a few seconds while it applied the settings, but beyond that there weren’t any surprises. A small nicety is that the lights can be turned off from within the software. If you need complete darkness for whatever reason, both the scroll-wheel light and the logo light can be switched on/off independently. I suppose switching off the lights might save a microscopic amount of power as well, which might be marginally helpful if you’ve got flakey USB ports or are running on a laptop’s battery. – The Bad I’ve only had a few days of use, so keep in mind that if long-term issues exist, I haven’t had enough time to run into them There’s no install disc in the box (PC or Mac).

Temperature measuring app for macros. You may not need it, but if you want it, you’ve gotta find it. That in itself isn’t all that bad – usually CD’s have outdated versions of software anyway, so you’re generally better off throwing those discs away and downloading the latest version online. That said, there’s a pile of other junk in the box already, so since “cost” or “environmental reasons” don’t seem to be the rationale behind it, they may as well have thrown a disc in there anyway (perhaps having the installer check for an updated online version first before installing).

Reversed up/down at the Mac’s boot-option screen. If you hold “Alt/Option” down at startup to choose a drive to boot to, up/down are reversed. Really a minor detail, but still strange. The mouse feet glide smoothly, but the material’s very soft. Even the tablecloth I’m using has scuffed them a bit. That means a coarse surface might wear these feet off over time. It’s clearly a design-choice – the material is soft, but glides smoothly.

I’d be careful about choosing a mousepad to go along with it though to be on the safe side. The Ugly 22MB installer, and 40-50MB installation. I know disk space is abundant these days, but that seems a bit large for a driver and mouse software.
