Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini Gaming Mouse Review: Smaller Specs for Smaller Hands

Ever wish your gaming mouse were a little smaller? In our Razer DeathAdder V2 review, we had those exact thoughts. The vendor granted that wish with the Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini, announced today. The gaming mouse takes the DeathAdder V2’s desirable shape and shrinks it into a package fit for smaller hands and smaller budgets.

At $50, the DeathAdder V2 Mini is $20 cheaper than its larger counterpart. It targets gamers with small to medium hands, which Razer told us is under 6.7 inches / 17cm in length and 3.3 inches / 8.5cm in width, and even throws in Razer Mouse Grip Tape for dramatic effect. However, this won’t be the best gaming mouse for those seeking high-end sensor specs.

As a trimmed down version of the DeathAdder V2 (which measures 5 x 2.43 x 1.68 inches) the DeathAdder V2 Mini is 4.50 x 2.20 x 1.52 inches. The biggest difference there is in the length. Our review focus is also tinier than other small wired mice, such as the Roccat Kone Pure Ultra (4.53 x 2.76 x 1.54 inches) and Riotoro Nadix (4.9 x 3.0 x 1.6 inches). Our review of the Deathadder V2 commenced on the mouse feeling too large for certain hands, so we definitely see room for a small mouse like the DeathAdder V2 Mini.
