Razer Taipan - Page 34

post #331 of 840
Using a similar sensor doesn't really mean much. There will be a difference if selection of VCSEL or specific parameters are changed (via firmware).


I'll still be grabbing one once it hits a 3rd party reseller.

If the Taipan has positive and negative acceleration all mixed up, what's the point in it then?

Why can't they make a laser mouse that simply has no acceleration? Is it technically not possible?

It isn't a "laser" issue, but yes, its quite silly that the manufacturer doesn't care enough to correct their own products.


Edit:
-There are many "lasers" that are accel free, although previous CMOS based variants typically have lower IPS than current advancements.
-PTE Doppler sensors are also acceleration free inherently.

And that leads to the question why the 9500/9800/9818 have Acceleration.

Simple architectural or rom flaws.

Also, don't forget about Sensei MLG, it might be better than Taipan.

price/performance doesn't mean anything if the mouse doesn't match your grip style. It could be $30 and a complete waste of money because its forcing a palm grip on a finger user.

Adapt. I use claw grip since ages and i'm playing with G500 without any problems whatsoever.

Seriously, a bad workman always blames his tools.

I get bad cramps using G400 after awhile, have been the same, and I have given them plenty of time but its just not possible.
So yes I blame my tools if its hurting.

And the fact that I prefer smaller mice, why play with something that does not feel good, lolz.

Seriously? That sounds beyond stupid. Why would you suggest that using a cheaper mouse that isn't proper for your grip is better than spending 20 more dollars for the proper mouse? Especially if the sensor isn't any better. I don't know about you, but I am on the computer for hours every day, and I don't particularly feel like having my hand uncomfortable when I could spend a little extra to get what I want.

On topic of the Taipan, is there any word on what mousepads it should work with? As far as I can see a none black hard pad seems like it would be best, but haven't seen any actual test results. Some of you guys that have it, can we expect any tests on various surfaces to see which works best?
