Razer Taipan - Page 60

post #591 of 840
Seems there's a 8 gram weight in the main body. Total weight drops from 95G>87G with it removed.

-Encoder confirmed TTC branded.
-The ID is better than I expected. Props to whoever designed this.

So Skylit, have you gotten your hands on a Taipan and given it a try? If so, what's your take on it?

I really like ambidextrous mice. I have a Xai and a G400 myself. While I really like the sensor on the G400 (later non prediction model), I can't get used to the shape no matter how much I use the mouse, and my hand tends to fatigue after long period of use. I've tried "adapting" many times now, but always find myself going back to the Xai simply because of the shape.

Anyone know if Razer is going to drop synapse, or at least give an alternative any time soon? I really like the looks of this mouse, but I refuse to buy anything that runs on synapse. Such a disaster.

What Exactly do you not like about it ?

Ive used a few Razer Products , my Old Razer mamba , Microsoft Intellimouse , MX518.

And I have to say Synapse is pretty awesome , its lets you do a heck of a lot more than a few other programs will.

I don't like that it's basically DRM with no offline option, want to load your profiles? Ok you better have an internet connection and a razer account...

I don't like that it crashes the .net framework constantly (worked with support and their advice was to uninstall, reinstall .net, reinstall synapse which works for about a day then it starts crashing on bootup again).

I don't that it adds latency and odd 'floaty' acceleration to the mouse and screws with the polling rate.

I can't find much TO like about synapse. It seems like a lose on all fronts. What exactly is the advantage of cloud based settings for your mouse? As opposed to just having them on the memory on the mouse or on your computer? I can't think of one. Other than to be able to use trendy buzzwords like "cloud" in your annual meetings. Like most things with new "gaming" products, it seems like something that was thought up in order to put a fancy looking bullet point on a box.

Give me at very least the option to use drivers and software on my own computer.

That is absolutely inacceptable. I didn't dream to see something like this with something simple as a mouse. Internet account, for a mouse...

Well then youre one of the very few that like it, for everyone else it's a nightmare including me. There's absolutely NO REASON why one needs an Internet connection and a ridiculous login to use mouse software, NONE.

Regular old drivers FTMFW.

Lets be honest most of us are connected to the Internet 95% of the time , and its still annoying , you are right you should have the options to just select a driver and Mouse Mangement Install.

Taipan is junk anyway! Who cares about razer software for Taipan. Good old deathadder is ftw which can work on old drivers!
Personally I use Razer Synapse because I can get 400 dpi on Deathadder.

Hmm, could I do this with the Diamondback, too? And what is the performance of your DA with Synapse?
