And why do you returned it ?blinksmiley.gif

If u unistall synanpse the profiles that u created remains stored into the mouse or not ?
is this the only one problem of this Taipan model ?

Just didn't like it. Profiles aren't saved, but cached onto the computer, so upon reboot mouse will use default settings. Cord is too low creating massive friction with my mousepad (cord started fraying as well in that area). Acceleration. And then there's that lag/pause thing with the drivers.

in practise a problematic product, right ?
like all razer mice i think.

So the issues still exist? I was thinking of getting one but from the looks of it, I won't be with all those problems :|

Always on the razer servers. You can "log out" of synapse and it's supposed to keep the profiles 'cached' but as soon as you restart your computer the profiles vanish and you have to log back into synapse to get them again. If you don't log back in, your mouse goes back to the defaults.

but this cause LAG !

seems to be a cheaper solution by Razer to decrease the cost of production but the product's price is the same or highter. mad.gif

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

A bit late in the day but I picked up the mouse yesterday and I absolutely know what you mean.

It feels like mouse lag, even though it does not lag. Its odd, kinda like your gliding on ice. Logging out of Synapse made no difference, in fact while on the topic I think its a rubbish idea that they removed the onboard profiles. I am a bit of a minimalist so having the Razer software in my system tray most of the time is annoying, as is the software popping up everytime Windows loads, which I have to close manually.

At first I was about to box the mouse back up and send it back but I decided to spend most of yesterday evening adjusting to it. After an hour I got there, and my aim improved. However I am still in two minds about it, its feels just wrong yet at the same time it worked out for me really well.

Playing Red Orchestra 2 yeilded the strangest results, but it did not cause me any problems. In fact it was easier to pixel hunt targets without having to change the DPI - something which I needed to do freqeuntly on the Imperator.

Compared to a good optical sensor though, it feels mushy, a good optical sensor feels precise, what movement you make is inputted 1:1 -crisp, without any messing around - at least that is how it feels.

I am still unsure about it, I need more time to play with it.

I will download CS 1.6 and see how it feels with that.

Yep this mouse "lag" is real. I noticed it in windows desktop as soon as I plugged it in. In games its even worse. My Quake shaft aim totally sucked with this mouse. Your hand/finger movements don't translate to crosshair movement on screen.

I know this will sound weird, but with the Taipan you can't aim by feel, you must focus your eyes on crosshair because sensor does its own thing lol. Even doing stuff in 2d desktop will feel weird and unnatural.

There is another flaw. The cord is way too low which causes friction with the pad and annoying sound as you move the mouse around. This pissed me off more than sensor behavior mad.gif

I have 20+ gaming mice and this is easily the worst one. It also cost me $100. Good job Razer.

More or less the issue is on Avago's end. Though Razer did pick up the sensor for the higher DPI range.


Such a shame. The mouse is actually impressive hardware wise.
