At first I was gungho on getting the Razer Taipan, because I have a history with their mice and other gear, never had ANY issues, but then some ppl told me that the synapse 2.0 is a disaster, but yet on my curent 1800dpi deathadder running 2.0, I haven't had any issues. Then i discovered the Genius GX Gaming mouse, and I've heard nothing but great things about it, only thing I dnt like about it is there is TOO many buttons for my liking that i know i'm never going to use, overall the mouse is a nice sleek design, with multi color options for lights and it is the SAME 8200dpi as the Taipan, but for 20 bucks cheaper @59.99 vs 79.99 and its optical vs Razer's Dual Laser 4G sensor technology. Now for the Corsair Vengence M65, got pretty decent reviews, but one thing that kept standing out in reviews is that I quote: "this mouse is HEAVY, but comfy and sleek" "this mouse has a sniper button that i dnt like because it can be hard to reach for ppl with SMALL HANDS" and finaly this "the mouse is cool but its meh, place your hand on it for a while in gaming or reg use and the top bezel where your hand palm rests, becomes DULLED" now with all my prev mice i ever owned, I never had these annoying yet simple issues, and I am a BIG fps guy, and I need to b able to flick my wrist when hardcore gaming without having to worry about "weight", "size" of mouse being too big, or my mouse looking older than it is after prolonged use. I've had my death adder now for about 5 years and it still looks only a few months old minus the dirt that accumulates slightly. =)
On that note help me out, only reason I havent decided on Taipan yet is because it is 80 BUCKS, which I think is a bit pricey vs other mice with similar dpi
