I had someone tell me the Razer Taipan is the best mouse ever and has NO acceleration at all, no matter how many mice I tell him is better. Please guys, throw in every reason why it's so terrible, and other mice that are better, he just won't listen to me.

Its made by Razer.

CM Storm Spawn, Logitech G9X and Corsair M65 would be my picks. Depends on his grip style, preferred dpi, mousing surface and hand size.

Fail argument is fail. Razer may be inconsistent, perhaps even deliberately negligent, but they still make the best mouse currently on the market.

It's not the Taipan though

What? Best mouse? Everyone needs a different mouse, because of this reason, there are no best mouse on the market. What you may like, will certainly not be the same for everyone.

Razer is not a brand that inspires build quality. I have two products of them and both are acting on their own from time to time and I'm obviously not the only one experiencing this problem.

You have literally the two worst razer products ever made.

Razer is bad. And that's a fact. The only product that I might consider buying from them is an old Deathadder, everything is just **** imo.

Taipan is indeed pretty nice in current state. Not sure If I enjoy the shape more than Xai (Kinda funky at front end, worse grip)

Shape wise it doesnt appeal to me havn't tried it. But had a sensei before but ambidextrous isn't for me.
But I aint a palmer I am clawing my mice, other con for me is the look of the mouse, I dont like green

.
And yes it made by Razer so I wont trust it, but thats my point of view!
I had 2 mice earlier of Razer the copperhead and the mamba both broke in half a year.
Sure it can happen with every mouse brand.
But they have to win my trust back before I will buy any mouse of them or any other pheriphal in the future.

Good for you btw that you like it,
Mice are really a personal thing we can only advise people here but shape and feel of the mouse is for everyone different.

I don't actually like it, I hate it's guts out, I had someone say to me it is the best available. I'm currently using a 800 DPI $10 mouse, But I'll be upgrading to SS Sensei or something else soon

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.

TLDR; Yet another mouse ruined by laser.

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.

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.

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.
