Summary: Great Mouse. No fatigue even after multiple hours of gaming. Wide selection of DPI settings, and a low profile for those of us who prefer fingertip mouse grip mice for precision. Some things to consider however.... There are no tuning weights like other mice, so this feels like it's going to fly off the mat.
Summary: This is a great mouse. I chose this mouse over the Steelseries Sensei Raw which is really the only competition it has in the ambidextrous market. It works great, but the only downfall is that the two buttons on one side is always going to be harder to operate than the other side. If you're right handed the right side buttons are just not easy to use.
Summary: This is a great mouse. I'm not a gamer but I bought this mouse mostly because I was tired of replacing all the wireless ones and recharging or replacing their batteries. Considering I never moved the mouse from my desk there was no reason for me to have a wireless mouse. The application that installs with the mouse works well and doesn't cause me issues like the Logitech Setpoint application always has.
Summary: Good: The shape is awesome. Its low profile and smaller size allows for a good fingertip grip and light weight makes it comfortable for long periods of use. The side rubber grips have a fantastic texture. Bad: The input delay on the sensor is real and apparent. The mouse wheel feels like it goes through so many stages of breaking down even for just daily scrolling.
Summary: So far a great mouse, my biggest complaint isn't really a complaint. I'm not a huge fan of their synapse program, however I must admit it's nice to be able to tweak settings with it and create profiles.
Summary: I play an FPS Internet game on PC, and this mouse seems like it was designed well for that job. There are other mice that are designed for FPS games, but I find ambidextrous mice working best for my hand during gaming, so this mouse is perfect.
If you want a Razer mouse with good tracking, buy an optical Death Adder or Abyssus.

Summary: I don't rate things 1 or 2 stars lightly, so let me explain. I'm a competitive gamer who strives to improve precision, consistency and then some. So because I strive to improve these things I want my peripherals to also deliver on these, which is where the Razer Taipan falls short. The first and foremost thing that you should look for when buying a competitive gaming mouse is the sensor.
Summary: Loved it when I got it in March, never used the scroll wheel / middle mouse button in games, but within a few hours of playing Cross last night and using the middle mouse button (default keybind) to switch suit modes, it gave out. Now it responds to maybe one in ten clicks. I won't eve begin to speak to how bad razer synapse is, everyone already knows it Sucks.
Summary: The way I hold my mouse, I'm always bumping one of the buttons on the right side with my middle finger, so I had to disable that one. It also means that my finger is always resting on or near that button, and it's not quite as comfortable as another mouse I have that is only for right-handed people. I guess that making it ambidextrous is not an advantage for me.
