Connectivity Wireless

The Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro is an excellent wireless gaming mouse. Its design is nearly identical to the Razer DeathAdder V2, but it now has wireless connectivity, and it can pair to two devices simultaneously for better multitasking. It has a right-handed ergonomic design that makes it very comfortable to use; however, it's on the bulky side, so it's better suited for medium to large hands. It has a light body and high-quality feet that allow it to glide smoothly. Every button is programmable, its Hypershift feature adds a second layer of programmable inputs, and even the lift-off distance is customizable. Unfortunately, it lacks software support for macOS, and the wheel doesn't have infinite scrolling and L/R tilt inputs.
