Okay, been lurking this thread for a while and read some reviews about this mouse and decided to get one, my hands are about medium size and I do not have sweaty palms.
No one ever talked about one important thing: The mouse surface texture.
It's not the usual rubberish plastic razer uses like on the Deathadder which I love. Instead, it's what I can describe as a sandpaper plastic feel which my hands can't seem to grip at all. I try to grip the mouse with my ring finger above the two side buttons and that finger keeps slipping on the plastic groove between the side buttons and right click button, if I try to grip the mouse with both my pinky and ring finger bellow the side buttons it's hard not to press them and it's not conformable at all.
The rubber sides are even worse, my thumb and pinky fingers keep sliding on those things, while that doesn't happen on the Deathadder smooth plastic sides !
What a disappointment.. the sensor seems good from what I could see, but I tried to get used to the mouse feel for a few days and just can't use it anymore, back to my Deathadder I guess.
Hope I helped someone with this "review" if you love the razer mouse feel, the Taipan is nothing like it.
