Question regarding Razer Taipan scroll wheel

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased the Razer Taipan (and love it : ) and I heard that the scroll wheel was tactile. I noticed it's kind of loose/easy to scroll with (not notched compared to the Steelseries Sensei). I was wondering is it supposed to feel that way or is there something wrong with my mouse?

It's supposed to have detents, but if they're using a TTC encoder like they usually do they won't be as pronounced as the ALPS encoder in steelseries mice. If you can't feel them at all something probably has gone wrong.

I can feel them but it's not a lot. It's very easy to scroll. It's very hard to explain : /

Yes. My impressions with the Taipan scroll were similar as well. I initially thought maybe the tactility wasn't as defined as it should be (and maybe the result of a defect), but after having purchased a couple of the Taipans, I think it's intended to be that way.

I feel a bit better now haha because I had returned my Steelseries Sensei because I wasn't happy with the quality especially for $90. But I also had recently returned a Taipan because the left click had barely any click at all to it making it easy to click on accident. I just hope that the scroll wheel was meant this way because I really don't want to return another..

ravenomega: NP. What do you mean by clearance of the wire? Are you asking if it was too high or too low? I didn't find any problems with that... but, I do remember other people briefly talking about it. But, not an issue for me.

Not really so much the wire being high or low, but that spot that it connects too (thick rubber). I have to kind of bend it for it to not drag. Speaking of dragging, I also noticed the plastic where the laser is, scratches my mouse pad..
