Razer Taipan - Page 44

post #431 of 831
Got a couple questions, (asking this again for more input) does it have the dusty sensor issue like the Xai? Where you get dust in the sensor and it will randomly skip till you blow in it? Or is that gone?

Secondly, I use an Intellimouse 1.1, would this be a nice upgrade? I palm grip and have a smaller hand.

I haven't run into that dust in sensor hole issue since modifications were made via later A9500 sensors.

2nd question: It's really up to you. It will certainly feel different, for better or worse.

But this is the Xai. Is this still valid for the Sensei for example?
From your Sensei tear down I can remember, it only had pos. accel.

Yeah, thats on me. The Xai or G500 for example would produce typical negative acceleration or malfunction with high speeds on a bit of cloth surfaces. The Sensei didn't do that, but still shared the prominent wobble effect that the Xai or G500 had. - refer to graph.

Basically, lower IPS movement can produce negative or positive accel, while higher IPS is almost always positive. This was also the case with 9800 mice I've messed around with. Not sure about the Taipan as I currently don't have one.

So does the Sensei have the dust in sensor issue? Or did they fix it with the future renditions of the a9500? If so, I might just pick that up instead, lol. smile.gif

Keep in mind, I use a cloth mousepad, and I get lots of cat hair/Dust on it.

You know I know it sounds like a big Marketing Trick, if Razer talks about ergonomic Scientists to guarantee the best symmetrical ergonomic mouse.
But if you feel the Mouse, I mean feel with your Hands and see the Build-Quality with your Eyes, you could really mean those words mean something and are for real.
A 3.5 G Deathadder has a to high LOD in my eyes and not the best Haptic. A Deathadder feels like a cheap bunch of Plastic compared to the massive but compact Razer Taipan anyway if you would ask me. The last symmetrical Mouse that impressed me on the same Level because of Haptic was the Zowie AM. But the Taipan is really a ergonomic Monster also, feels really professional im my Hand and does its Job excellent.
The ergonomic Shape is better said so good or comfortably, that I use a symmetrical Mouse the first Time with a Palm and not a Claw Grip in my left Hand and Life, and the ergonmic Side for your Thumb while palm the Mouse fits really great in my left Hand.
Only that you can imagine my Handsize and that you can compare it with you, my Handsize is 20,5 cm from the Palm Hand Edge to the end of the middlefinger.

Well, I really love my DeathAdder. I had an original, and now I have a BlackEdition. The shape and size are perfect. Now, with my MBA, I don't really want a DeathAdder-sized mouse, but something a bit smaller so that I don't feel like I should be using my mouse with a desktop. The only games I'll really be playing on the MBA are games like Trine 1/2, CS:S, Braid, Super Meat Boy, etc. and possibly games like Diablo III and Dungeon Defenders. I'm not huge on macros, so the only 'extra' buttons I require are the two side-buttons.

If you want a good size comparison take a look at my review video as the DA is very similar in size to the Nagga and I have that on my desk during the review. I wouldn't call it as ergonomic as the DA but I actually like that better because I can grip the mouse the way I want to and not be forced to grip it the way the ergonomics are shaped. Will also add that the Taipan feels much better made than the DA and even the Nagga. I feel like they stepped up the quality a notch on this one compared to their previous offerings.

Do you have a direct link to the review?

-thin mouse feet that dies fast meaning bottom of mouse will hit mousepad in the future
-not a perfect sensor - both pos and neg accel like 9500 mice
-most likely works best on hardpads and decent on softpads
-looks kinda cheap because of the gray side buttons and the plastic grill in front of the mouse (opinionated)
-poorly positioned mouse cord at the bottom of the mouse which potentially could hit the mousepad; then again all mouse cords hit the mousepad or your table but this would be at a closer distance from the mouse. Keep in mind it is also a roughly braided cable which causes more friction than a regular one (this wouldn't matter with a mouse bungee)

thanks

@pez

You want a smaller Deathadder. Don't look at the Taipan, rather get the Zowie EC2. (that is the only similar Deathadder mouse, that is smaller)

So I guess conclusion is, optical mice are still better? I wait for someone making a Sensei/Taipan shaped optical (yes, AM is, but has crummy buttons and wheel, at least my model).

I can't wrap my head around the fact that they still can't make a laser sensor that has no acceleration and performs good on cloth. Skylit said there are laser mice that have no acceleration, why not this?

Because those sensors have their own problems, which would be worse if Razer used it.
