The Cougar Revenger is a good alternative to the Razer Deathadder Elite.
The Cougar Revenger is just as good as the Razer Deathadder Elite and also costs around 50 euros. Whether sensor, ergonomics or freely configurable buttons, the mice give themselves nothing. You can let design and software decide. The manufacturers rely on their own program for customizing the buttons and RGB control. If you buy additional accessories such as a gaming keyboard from the same manufacturer, you can configure the devices with the same software and let the RGB lamps light up synchronously.

The Razer Basilisk Essential comes with a removable multifunction paddle as an additional button.
Some gamers prefer a thumb grip, as the Razer Basilisk Essential brings. If you wish, you can attach an additional programmable button to the mouse that looks a bit like a paddle. For example, you assign it the function of activating the microphone. At 6,400 DPI, the sensor has a lower resolution than many other mice – even the cheaper Razer DeathAdder Elite offers 16,000 DPI. Most gamers will not mind, professionals are more likely to use a different mouse.
