I have a Razer Taipan. What mousepad should I get?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have a Razer Taipan mouse and a Roccat Taito mid-size mouse pad. I previously used my Razer Abyssus on this mouse pad with no problems. But I have a problem with using the Taipan on this mouse pad. I'm not quite sure how to explain the problem, but when I move my mouse around, the sensitivity seems to be unstable and if I move my mouse fast, my cursor freezes up. Sometimes my mouse cursor will act like it is stuck inside of something.
Although, if I just take away my mouse pad and use my mouse on my desk, which is a smooth sort of laminated wood desk, none of those problems persist, and the mouse works flawlessly. I am wondering, since this seems to prove that I need a new mouse pad, would the steelseries QCK have these issues with my mouse as well? I am nervous about buying new pads because I don't want to waste money/time on something that won't fix my problem, but I did read on a forum that someone had lag problems with the Taipan on a different mouse pad but not on the QCK. I just need help deciding and whether someone else has had this problem with the Taipan on mouse pads as well.

Tracking issues might have something to do with the reflectivity of the mouse pad you're using. Have you tried the good ole' original cloth mouse pad? I got a Ripper XXL and for every mouse I have (multiple MS's, Logitech's, etc) it's been an absolute pleasure to use! Hope this helps some...I can say that it CERTAINLY sounds like a tracking issue with the mouse pad though...so something is definitely wrong there.

I only have a Taito, haven't tried any other mouse pads, but I thought this one was considered cloth?

And if I should get a mouse pad that isn't cloth, what should I get?
I need it to be about 15.7 x 12.6 in dimension biggrin.gif

The largest hard mat I know of in production is the Corsair MM400.

Do you know of any good hard pads that are around 15.7 inches * 12.7 inches? I would definitely get the artisan shidenkai if I knew if it works with the taipan.

Also, why is it that laser mice don't work with cloth surface mouse pads?

When I use my Taipan, yes I use 3 different mice, on my razer Vespula I have no issues what so ever. Tracks well and does seem to like it as well as my Logitec G700s and Roccat XTD....Also used a RAT 7 on this pad and no issues either. I got it because I was on sale for $10 but it's an expensive mouse mat. It has 2 sides for your preferences. A bumpy surface for Control and a really smooth surface for speed.
