Razer Taipan - Page 58

post #571 of 840
With your result and testing. I have to cut Taipan off my Christmas list lol. mad.gif
Shape of Taipan looked promising but cant handle those sensor flaws until for another year they try to fix firmware and goes on etc.

Yea, I was pretty excited myself. The shape looked great and the dual sensor thing seemed interesting buuuuuuuuuut epic fail :|


Let's just say, in a professional esports setting I would rather use the deathadder than this mouse in any game I've tested thus far

I've been on a hunt for the perfect mouse for a long time :| not sure laser mice cut the mustard

Same here guys. Taipan has good design and shape, was curious about it, but no thanks anymore. No big fan of all those flawed laser sensor performance, not for 80 euro.

Am strongly looking for bst's Ninox Aurora mouse. Good old optical. Really see nothing else on the gaming mice market sofar. Steel Series has a perfect shape and good build quality, but fails on so many other areas (laser sensor...). Razer, laser sensor. Roccat, weird shape or experimental side coating, or no sidebuttons on their ambidextrous mouse (Lua). Zowie... nevermind. Everything else, too many leds and flaws, where flaws shouldn't be (screwing up optical sensor performance which works on other mice).

No-one really seems to get it right.

I felt sniping wasn't really as easy as most mice and skill shotting people in the air with rockets was not very easy whatsoever. Having to swap targets from infront of me to behind me also felt awkward at various stages throughout the few games I played. All in all I don't think the mouse is too bad in TF2 or Call of Duty. For some reason in CS and Tribes the mouse just felt unplayable. I mean, sure after an hour or so of using the mouse I became used to the floaty feeling... but being able to land shots on a strafing target from across the map was harder than it should have been; I cannot get fully used to the floaty feeling and I am not quite sure I would ever want to.... It doesn't feel good. I like the crisp feeling of most optical mice and being able to flick shot accurately. I'm not quite sure why the mouse feels this awkward. Maybe I did something wrong? Oh well... I've requested a refund from Amazon and it should be going back in the next 3-5 days. I'll test it out until I ship it out but it's not looking good :O
Again - I uninstalled Synapse, I'm on windows 7, have Mark's registry file installed, pointer accel is off - default windows sensitivity and I am on a Steelseries QCK.

Repped for not accepting flaws that shouldn't exist with a mouse in this price range instead of spamming "best mouse that I have ever used!" in every forum. If most people were like you and returned defective mice then those flaws might not exist. thumb.gif

^ Agreed.

Again. I don't know why you're targeting laser illumination as its come a long way in terms of surface recognition. The basic operation of these sensors is no different than LED optical mice. Granted, the sensor manufacturer wants to cheat (smoothing) and not fix prior issues involved with the architecture itself.

If they continued supporting the older hybrid architecture (similar to the one in current LED based optical mice) , I could almost guarantee you guys wouldn't have much to complain about.

That's kind of hard when everyone is trying to compete in the DPI race. The prior issues have been highlighted by a handful of companies, but it's something Avago doesn't really care about.

Because of this, were stuck on 10+ year old designs that top companies still support....Gee wiz... I wouldn't be surprised if this is done on purpose.


As for the Taipan. I'm a fan of what Razer has done here in terms of Industrial design and hardware. I'm not a fan of what the sensor manufacturer gets away with.

lol... floaty? I've been using the mouse problem free in BF3, TF2, Quakelive, and Planetside2. The only issue I have encountered with the mouse is the desktop lag that synapse causes.

It's really isn't that obvious when using the mouse. As I said above, I quickly stop noticing it after using it, and every day I use it I notice it less and less, and I haven't noticed it in games either. But lets be honest, you aren't using it problem free. It does have acceleration issues(no way to get around that). The shape, design, quality, etc of everything but the sensor in the Taipan is very amazing in my opinion, but we can't deny that the sensor would have been far better off as a an old optical sensor over the new DPI race sensor they put in it.

I tried one of the proclaimed "best" mice, i.e. deathadder, and I felt it sucked. It was some of the worst lift off distance I have ever experienced, and the grip was awkward with the bulge on the right. I have no interest in ghetto rigging my mouse with scotch tape on the sensor. The minor flaws in these new sensors are hardly noticeable, to me at least. I destroyed with my PTE Mamba, and I do the same with this mouse (before Mamba I had Logitech G5, G9). People are just too anal over these minuscule issues. We would all love a "perfect" mouse, but things people do like, others don’t. Nothing is ever perfect.

Doesnt the Mamba share the Deathadder shape?
