The Deathadder Elite comes with a 16,000 CPI optical sensor, seldom will someone boost up the CPIs to that figure, therefore, the biggest hitching factor for the deathadder is the addition of the PMW-3366 sensor which has been manufactured by Pixart in collaboration with Logitech. The sensor has been favored ever since it was introduced back in 2014. Some may argue that the sensor is old and may not perform as good as a modern sensor, but those allegations are only limited until you use it and feel the precision that the sensor adds to the Deathadder Elite. The software of course plays a vital role in adding up to the precision and the overall quality of the device.

For a device with this level of features and functionalities it is justified to have this kind of a price tag. Design conscious people do argue that the design isn’t exactly aligned with the price tag, but considering what you get under the hood pretty much makes up for that space.
