Yes. This is quite stupid. I just made this so someone I know can be more educated about good gaming mice.

More educated? Seems like you just want other people to back you up talking non sense/crap about another persons (friends) opinion.

Apart from subjective shape, I feel the taipan is still very good in terms of hardware and ID , though I'm not exactly the biggest fan as the front end mold becomes wider than rear. (Worse claw grip for me, but I can see it working very well palmed). Though it still technically usable in my case.

Sensor performance is very accurate/precise, more so than then Sensei I have. The higher smoothing curve introduced with 9800 based sensors has also been reduced to a quite usable point. At least in reference that anyone who didn't have knowledge I technically gave out wouldn't/shouldn't have an issue. (Unless pretty experienced with specific model).

Of course there's a minor accel curve, but this is the same case with SS sensei or any other 9500/9800 based mouse.

Internally, I don't like the choice of encoder wheel. For its wheel size, it's lacks resistance and that will just get looser over time. Dual sensor aspect is more or less marketing as that kind of advanced calibration isn't "needed". Synapse is buggy aswell.. with thier own pads....

Micro control is good. Cheaper 32 bit nxp unit. Most are still on tired and true 8 bit with 16 bit data path. Polling is fairly stable from what Ive experienced.

Solder job is ok. Typical from this specific factory.

Related to software, you can't set a left hand mode without having synapse installed. Buttons on Right side get disabled. Too me this is very disappointing considering the hardware or capabilities.


I guess im just tired of people talking crap about Razer when I see a plethora of others brands churning out inferior products. Granted the taipan is like any other well marketed mouse is pricey for "what it is". Don't assume SS is any better on that front.

And that's how you tell a ***** to shut up.

Not all Laser mice are bad, and the Taipan uses a Laser+optical implementation (Philips Twin Eye?).

Nope. Main sensor is custom A9800 based. Second optical sensor isn't really designed for tracking, though used for advanced calibration/detection.

Works well. Very precise throughout the entire DPI range.. The dual sensor aspect "works" though I think it's a waste of money and only really benefits as a marketing ploy.

Honestly, there are much worse optical and laser sensors out there.. even if they're "linear".

Yeah I wasn't sure and left the question mark there for you to come along and answer.smile.gif That's interesting to know, thanks. Gotta love that gaming peripheral marketing, regardless of company.

Looking at the SteelSeries mice -- they look pretty good on build quality, at least the mold.

Someone is telling me their Taipan has no acceleration at all. Please, help me.

Skylit, can you explain a bit of what the "smoothing" thing is, and if it's been resolved via firmware? I like the shape of the mouse and value your feedback.
