The Razer DeathAdder Elite ships in a black box, though there is photo of the mouse visible from the front.
On the back of the box Razer have highlighted a few key features of the mouse, including the premium-grade sensor and mouse switches.
There were no accessories in my box, though this is likely due to the fact that I was sent a review sample. Retail models will include a quick-start guide and a ‘welcome to the Cult of Razer' greeting card.
Here we get our first look at the mouse itself. You would be forgiven for thinking it is ambidextrous, but if you look closely at the image above and on the right, you can see that it is subtly shaped to fit right-handers.
It is also worth mentioning the mouse makes use of a hard-plastic outershell – it does not have a rubberised finish.
Moving in to get a closer look, the left-hand side of the mouse sports two extra buttons (usually for in-browser navigation), while there is also a rubber pad below these buttons to help your thumb grip.
The right-hand side features the same rubber pad to allow your fourth-finger to grip, but that is it.
At the top of the mouse, we find the scroll wheel (yes, it does feature RGB lighting) and two DPI-adjustment buttons. It is also worth mentioning that the left-and-right-click buttons are contoured, so your fingers sit in small ‘grooves'.
At the bottom of the mouse is a relatively large Razer logo – this also features RGB lighting, something we look at on the next page.
Turning to the underside of the mouse, the DeathAdder Elite uses two large feet to help it glide smoothly.
Lastly, the braided cable is quite long, measuring in at 7ft (2.1m) in length.
