Very tempted to return my DA:BE and get one of these, even though it will require Synapse, and doesn't have the DPI buttons that were on the leaked model.
I'm also finding that the wheel on my DA:BE is far worse than my original model, it's a lot looser, which will prevent it from squeaking as my original one did, but it's also far easier to scroll an extra notch accidentally, which I do at least a few times a day now.
It's too bad that they didn't just update the internals of the Black Edition and the Left-Handed editions at the same time, as I much prefer how the Black Edition looks to the regular DeathAdder, and am also in the market for a left-handed mouse, and the left-handed is an old design now. (horrible glossy finish, translucent scroll wheel, and blue LEDs)
I'm surprised that there is anyone here that actually wants
blue LEDs in their mouse. They're the worst thing to happen to consumer electronics in the last ten years. But I also prefer to have no LEDs on anything, unless they actually serve a purpose.
LEDs to tell you if a device is on standby? Useful, but I would prefer them to be optional.
LEDs to tell you a device (particularly a display) is turned on? Pointless if there is another indicator of it being on. (like being able to see an image on the display)
LEDs on computer hardware for no good reason? Horrible.
It's particularly bad, because it means I will probably have to install Synapse to at least disable the LED on this mouse, assuming it defaults to 1800 DPI & 500Hz as the other DeathAdders.

6400 DPI doesn't excite me, but the 200 IPS/s and 50G acceleration at all DPI settings, along with surface calibration is very exciting. We may finally have a modern mouse that won't malfunction at 400 DPI. (I can get any of the 3090 mice to malfunction at 400, and even 800 on some)

While I've never used the Taipan, the shape does look pretty nice for an Ambidextrous mouse. I'm still undecided about whether I want an ambidextrous mouse or a left-handed mouse for my left hand. Ambidextrous mice do tend to cause me pain in my right after a while, so I guess ergonomic would be better.
