I'm still not getting that issue at all, and just wonder what the differences in our set-up are. It may be a software issue, at least hopefully it is.

All previous mouse drivers are uninstalled. My last mouse before this one was fine. And that was only last week so no major changes has been done to the system. I'm using it with the system open and the mouse is the only thing that ties to the program. I have it calibrated with Razer Goliathus Speed mat. I took that off and the issue seems to be there still. DPI is set @ 2000 with polling rate 500. Changing polling rate doesn't fix the problem.

Had this happen before fairly commonly when I first used it. Hasn't happened over the past couple of days though.

I uninstalled Synapse. Seems the problem has stopped. I'd prefer to have Synapse but it looks like the driver's not liking me. It's the same kind of lag that happens if you change the poll rate and the driver has to update it in real time. I'll take the apply button back now instead of having the driver constantly updates like that. I think that might be the problem for me.

I just got the Razer Taipan in the mail. I installed it and tested it out in various games and noticed some issues. I find the mouse unplayable in counter-strike 1.6 and most first person shooters compared to most mice. Don't get me wrong the mouse is insanely comfortable (in my opinion) and it works great in moba's and most games... however I find the mouse... to have an insanely weird feeling in first person shooters. It almost feels as if the tracking on the mouse is slow and as if you're gliding over liquid. I'm using a cloth mousepad from steelseries (qck)... The mouse is literally unplayable in CS 1.6. Is there something i'm doing wrong? I run CS 1.6 with -noforcemparms -noforcemaccel. I have pointer acceleration off and mark's windows 7 mouse fix installed. The mouse just does not feel good compared to EVERY mouse i own, including the steelseries sensei, g400, etc. I've tried the mouse with synapse installed and without. Am i doing something wrong? If not the mouse is going to be returned asap =]


If I end up returning the mouse, what mouse should i be looking for? I'm trying to find a mouse with a solid sensor (which I do not believe the Taipan has at this point). I believe sky was talking about the CM Storm? Maybe i'll give it a try. Thanks for the help

I can't confirm it, but I believe you're the first person I know of that has complained about the smoothing curve I mentioned a bit ago. I kinda avoided leaking that info out till the last minute to see if mouse reviewers would catch wind (they didn't).

I'll answer your other questions via PM.

I also felt the smoothing curve with my Naga paired with the Synapse 2.0. Synapse is pretty terrible. I remember pairing my DA 3.5G with it and it gave me the option to change the dpi from 100 to 3500 with intervals of 100 even though the old drivers only allowed 400, 900,1800, and 3500. I freaked out and uninstalled the drivers immediately because I didn't want my DA to get damaged if I set it to a DPI between those numbers.

Naga has a different type of sensor in the way it tracks and functions. The difference I'm implying comes from newly implemented ROM enhancements to allow the sensor to remain precise at higher CPI.

Your DA wouldn't have gotten damaged. Simple micro controller recalculation (If anything).

Basically to give an idea of what I am talking about, I tested the mouse in CS:Go, CS 1.6, Source, and Tribes Ascend. The mouse doesn't feel too bad in CS:Go, but it feels absolutely horrible in tribes ascend, source, and 1.6. Basically it feels, as you said, like there is some sort of smoothing built into it. The mouse is not Crisp, it feels.... sluggish. I mean sluggish might not be the best word to use but... it just feels slow and cloud like. It almost feels like I am pushing against something when moving the cursor. It's hard to explain the feeling as to how I perceive it... but :O

like negative acceleration maybe?
Or just with lag?

I can see why common mouse reviewers would proclaim that the mouse is fantastic and awesome, however I almost disagree completely with everything they're saying. I can pretty much gurantee that no pro-gamer is going to settle with the taipan in a first person shooter. As I said previously though the mouse isn't too bad if you're into mobas, mmo's, and other sorts of games that don't necessarily rely on precise accuracy. Flick shotting with the taipan is Work, it's certainly not easy. It's not hard... it's just not effortless like with a good optical sensor. It's also not a problem of the cursor just feeling smooth in Tribes ascend and CS 1.6... it's more so that the mouse cursor feels as if I just drank 8 shots of tequila. It's certainly hard to explain and I can literally say i've never felt a cursor this awkward before. I have the steelseries sensei... i'm not a huge fan of it in first person shooters either but it's no where near as bad as the Taipan. Right now I have 4 mice plugged into my computer to figure out why I just can't get accustomed to the Taipan's feel in first person shooters..... I'm comparing the "Feel" of the movement of the cursor to various mice and none of them seem to have the issue the Taipan is having. It's quite awkward.

It certainly isn't hard to play Well with the taipan.... but I think it would be physically impossible to play at the level I am playing at with other mice, such as the intellimouse. If anyone else has a Taipan let me know if you're having the same issue with the feeling of the sensor in CS 1.6. Also, if anyone has tribes ascend... you can actually tell the sensor begins to feel VERY awkward even at the opening menu. It just feels.... smooth and not crisp. Tribes ascend is Free on Steam so anyone with a Taipan can test it out. Thanks!



Oh, it's not an issue with lag. I mean, i've been swapping a few different mice into and out of my computer to see if it was a general issue after reformatting my computer or not. It's only occuring with the Taipan. It doesn't really feel like lag per se. It's not skipping around, I haven't had issues with the mouse freezing like some other people on here have mentioned. The cursor just has a feeling i've never experienced before and it's not a good feeling to say the least. Outside of first person shooters it's hard to recognize..... buuuuuut for $80 I generally like to have a mouse that is suitable for various genres of games.

It would be a perfect scenario if I could teleport the mouse to Sky so he could shed more light on the issue in a more technical sense but ;\ If there is anything I can do from here or tests I can do for you Sky let me know and I'll perform them. I'll be back around 9pm EST tonight.
