-------------------------------------------
Well, I have been using my Razer DeathAdder for about 5-6 Months now, and I think it's starting to die. The mouse was bought brand new, and I am now experiencing problems where the click is sometimes not responding. I would left click and nothing would happen, I would have to keep clicking until it actually responds. I don't know if this is hardware or driver related, if this is hardware related I have to say Razer this was the biggest waste of $60 and I will never ever buy a product from you again.

EDIT: It seems the old school method, of blowing into the side of the mouse, temporarily fixes the problem. Help would be nice though.

Is the product under warranty?

Yes, I believe so, but if I do get a new one I am going to sell it on ebay and buy a decent logitech mouse that won't break on me in a few months.

Strange issue honestly, we reviewed the Deathadder shortly after it debuted and to this day it works fine without any jamming, I would have to wonder if it's some strange build up under the mouse or around the edges?

It seems really odd, maybe update the driver / firmware on it? My first guess if blowing worked would be to use compressed air inside it to clean it out since the only thing I can kind of associate it to is a keyboard where the cup isn't able to make a full press on the membrane.

Ok I'll try that we have an air compressor in our garage. Thanks.

also, possibly you might have a defective mouse. Just return it and get a replacement.
