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
I have 20+ gaming mice
and this is easily the worst one. It also cost me $100. Good job Razer.
Guys... It's NOT A HARDWARE PROBLEM. You have to calibrate your mouse to the mousepad you're using, by either:
1) Selecting a mousepad that you're using your Taipan on under the Synapse software - they, for obvious reasons, only list Razer mousepads
2) Manually calibrating your mouse to the surface you're using (if you don't have a Razer mousepad).
This is just a guess...
I once had a Taipan before, and I, too, noticed the cursor movement was a bit funky... at first. But doing the mousepad selection/calibration made things a lot better (IIRC).
Again, this is just from memory, as I once had a Taipan, but returned it (now I want one again). Someone should try this out and report on the results.Edited by fuzzybass - 9/30/12 at 1:40am
