Razer Taipan - Page 39

post #381 of 840
No one really gave a clear answer. So does this mouse have acceleration on cloth pads and hard pads? Is it more acceleration than the Sensei if anybody knows? I believe Sensei is ~5% accel.

I suppose I can understand the feature being viable for those who still can't touch-type (although in today's world of the internet age, that might as well be the same as not being able to write), but that's a pretty big crutch, and not something that is even necessary if you just leave your lights on, which is better for preventing eyestrain anyway.
Through and through its pretty much just down to bling. I have a Vortek KBC RACE with white backlit keys and it does look pretty awesome. No shame in buying something that looks nice as long as it performs well to begin with.

You sir are ignorant. Personally I play games that are more complicated than CS and I can't touch type because I don't do facebook, twitter, icq, irc, etc. What is touchtyping of use if you have to push a key with your left hand that is far at the right side of the keyboard (key seven on numpad for instance)? I often play more tactical games on public severs, where team speak isn't given and we devise plans before action in form of chat messages. And since I play only at evening/night in low light I can't without backlighting, unless the map is bright and illuminates my keyboard, which is probably bad for eyes, because backlighting is clear and strong and easy to see.

People say it has pos and neg accel at various pads and speeds. I guess the performance is stable for the most part but there are situations where it loses stability, which is quite unsatisfying for me. I guess you can only be sure by testing it for yourself.

Well I'm still kind of hesitant in buying the mouse. I'm still deciding between the Taipan and the Sensei. Sensei has accel and Taipan supposedly does too. I'd like to know which has less before i purchase either one. Small accel (like Sensei's 5%) wouldn't bother me because all I care about is both mice's claw grip. However I'd still want to know which has the better sensor and performance at ~1000-1800 dpi on cloth pads. Anything above 1800 is irrelevant to me even if its outrageous neg/pos accel
post #385 of 840
They both have accel of similar amounts and both perform similarly at specified DPI

Which do you think is better for claw grip and overall? I mean the taipan is practically 90 dollars cuz of razer's shipping while sensei has freeshipping in most sites.

I'm seriously considering buying either one and I'm not sure which to buy. Anybody else's input would greatly appreciated.

Personally, I find the taipan has a better shape - probably better for claw.

I do claw grip and it works great with the mouse but palm grip seems just fine as well.

It's a very basic mouse shape so it's easy to hang on to no matter how you want to grip it. It's not a super ergonomic mouse so you can just grab a hold of it however you like and it seems to be fine. Its also super light which is good for picking it up.


2 more awesome features that I found are in the Razer Synapse software. You can select a mouse pad if you have one of Razer's and it can calibrate the mouse tracking to the pad, and also there is a slider where you can adjust lift off tracking distance

ehh i just ended up buying the sensei because from what i read:

1. synapse 2.0 is the lols
2. mousefeet is too thin (and dies really quickly) making the bottom of the mouse scratch (similar to my DE so i had to use Puretrak's HD which most likely wont be carrying any Taipan feet)
3. cord is positioned too low making it potentially scratch the mousepad (it is literally at the bottom instead of spaced up)
4. in about all razer mice i purchased, the cords arent really braided correctly and thus arent really flexible and straight
5. ss's mice ergo shapes seem consistent with each other while razer isnt meaning if I ever choose to buy a mouse in the future, SS's new line of mice might have the same ergonomics and sensor position (which is also important part of a gamer's consistency when not considering the sensor)

The synapse software is awesome imho. Cord positioning is not an issue, and the braiding is no different than any other mouse I have ever used.
