What do you think about the Quality of this Mouse?
How good is the Haptic?

I'd answer you guys but I'm saving all of my impressions for my review. I'll be writing it either tomorrow or Friday.

Thanks, and I'll do my best to incorporate all of your detailed questions in my write-up.

First serious Taipan Review.

Lil Quote about the Sensor from it:

Finally, I also played a couple rounds of CS: Source (Raw mouse input mode on) mainly because it’s a good way to test for mouse acceleration. For those unfamiliar with mouse acceleration, it’s when the mouse moves more or less depending on how fast you move the mouse. Unfortunately, many new games such as Battlefield 3 has built in mouse acceleration, which is terrible for those skilled in twitch aiming. That said, I did notice very slight amounts of negative acceleration, but it was definitely not a major issue. Moving from one side of the large CM Storm Speed RX mousepad (~17in – 18in) to another only yielded maybe a 300px to 500px difference in position on screen. This is significantly less acceleration than what we saw from the older Avago ADNS-9500 sensors. Additionally, I didn’t notice any lift off issues at all, which was a huge problem with some of the other Razer mice that used the Phillips Twin Eye sensor.

With the avago sensor in it, I wonder what the optical sensor is for...

Advanced calibration.

Wasnt the Optical Sensor there to measure the lift off distance, and to correct the z-axis issue.
Or has it other or more functions?

Z-axis tracking is PTE issue and ADNS-9500 have low LOD since first mice with it.
post #168 of 840
The Ouroboros has a similar sensor version of this mouse then like Skylit believed.

In case of the Naga and Imperator the second sensor aided in lift off detection, but I'm not exactly sure if it corrected the issue entirely. IE dynamic dpi scaling possibly being a result of that "fix"

When it comes to the Taipan, the main sensor itself has specific calibration and lift off detection methods built in, but being a dedicated solution, the second sensor should offer more accuracy... Well I suppose this could be viewed more as marketing or a selling point rather than just another basic laser mouse.

PS: That second sensor isn't designed for tracking.

Looks really good, and unlike other "reviewers" they actually know something.

Still looking forward to this mouse alot biggrin.gif
