Razer Taipan - Page 75

post #741 of 840
Here's my longer-term review. I've had it since its release in August, so it's been 4 months now.

First things first, l'm back onto my DA 3.5, which has a slightly messed up scrolling action, but otherwise works fine.

The Taipan had developed some major issues, the first of which is not working when I boot up. This means I have to replug the mouse every time I start up, but it doesn't happen every time. This problem is not reproduceable. The second, and even worse issue, is the fact that the back button on the left side only works if you push it in really hard, rendering it useless. I use the back button religiously, so not having it functional is not acceptable. I've never touched the 2 buttons behind the scroll wheel.

Overall, everything else works on it, the scroll wheel is still amazing and the clicking action on it is perfect in every way. The coating or texture on the surface and sides show no signs of wear and still feels great. The left and right mouse button still feel brand new (The feeling on the DA changes slightly). Another nice thing is it doesn't seem to attract as much dirt as the DA.

In terms of its sensor, it doesn't seem to track as nicely and responsively as the DA but I don't really have complaints about it. I don't think I found any prediction, and acceleration didn't seem to be an issue, but if I really focus it probably as negative acceleration.

The driver is ok, I'm not gonna be a little whiny ***** about it always being online.

In general, the shape and feel of the mouse is fantastic but its internals are not. Now l'm contemplating a G500 mouse right now, but I don't want to deal with prediction. Hopefully Logitech's next mouse will have a decent sensor to go along with its build quality.

I updated my bios then the start up problem was gone.
It was effecting 2 other new mice and my new keyboard.
I have no other issues with it. at all.

Can anyone confirm mousefan's claims? If the Taipan has gotten better, and maybe that 'smoothing agent' is gone, I will gladly buy it.
post #745 of 840

I'll confirm an update exist. Can't confirm if Razer has applied

post #746 of 840
So there's an update that fixes the smoothing, which basically will make it a stock ADNS 9818 if I'm correct?
post #747 of 840

S9818 is a custom code. I don't know the exact changes from A9800, but it should follow suit with public variation.

post #748 of 840
So then something like the 9500s in the sensei series? With minor accel? (5%ish) Just want to make sure that this update will in fact roll out if I go and purchase it now.

I just plugged in my taipan and updated it, still feels really laggy. I'm not sure if its just me though.

Well now that l'm back on the DA, it feels like even after updating to the latest firmware the Taipan still has a very minuscule amount of input lag.
