post #651 of 814
Yeah its a shame because I really like buttons and materials they used. Shape and weight are good as well.

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.

I agree with every notion in your post.

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

or

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.

So even good hardware doesn't mean a good tracking mouse.

Calibrating the mouse pad has no perceivable effect on the mouse for me, neither does adjusting the liftoff distance - it makes none what so ever from the lowest to the highest settings.

I have decided I am keeping this mouse though, while the smoothing feels unnatural at first, I still find the mouse to be very accurate and I like using it.

I did try some CS 1.6 though and for this game it was pretty catastrophic, if your a CS 1.6 player your better off using a lower DPI optical mouse, other high end laser mice don't seem to work that well with CS 1.6 from my past experiences either. Running Source engine games on a 120hz monitor with this mouse is super slick.

It's a sensor ROM change that effects any A9800 mouse.

By saying it's not the hardware, you're somewhat correct. Though it certainly has nothing to do with the second surface imaging sensor and calibration.

Yeah I've done all that too. There was no difference. I tried different mats as well. Razer Goliathus Speed, QcK Heavy and Roccat Taito.

I missed this, but yup. Rather have angle snapping enabled than use this mouse in its current state. Was quite annoying^^


I'm hoping this gets fixed down the road. The mouse is still capable assuming they have proper electronics for usb flash.

What's so great about this mouse's hardware? I imagine this mouse still has the 9800 acceleration, correct?
