Great while it lasted

Michael P., Newegg
8 August 2015
  • Pros: -Awesome feel -Lots of options -Good amount of extra buttons
  • Cons: -Razer software is cumbersome and unnecessary -Green light can be annoying at times -Middle mouse button broke after a while. I've had much cheaper mice that have lasted much longer.

My last Razer

Adam C., Newegg
23 November 2014
  • Summary: I use this for mainly gaming and photo editing. Its just outside of warranty and the scroll wheel is coming apart like the last one. I didn't get this one with Newegg because I had to replace the last one on a deadline. I've had four Razer mice and the first two lasted a lot longer.
  • Pros: Good grip on the sides, fully customizable, excellent DPI range.
  • Cons: You have to register an account if you want to use the included software, and it can add to start-up time, after extended use with the led on tracking would be effected (with the led off it wasn't effected)

Good: The shape is awesome

Bendic, Amazon
6 September 2014
  • 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.

Tried to Like it... But ......

Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: I have been gaming for many many years ( more than I would like to admit , Zork Anyone ?) and have used many many Mice in that time. I came to a point where my current mouse was just plain worn out and needed to be replaced.

Same problem as every other Razer I've bought

Laura Collins, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: After four months, the left click button is failing. It double clicks when it should single click and sometimes won't register a click at all. I have had 5 Lachisis, an Imparator and now this one. All of them have failed in the same way.

Ughh...

Bryan W., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I mentioned in the "Cons" section that the issues only occurs with my Z87 systems. I've tried three different Z87 motherboards, all with the same results. Just annoying problems left and right.
  • Pros: Mouse worked great when it worked... until it doesn't. When it does work, I absolutely love it. It utilizes Razer's Synaspe software, the same driver software common across all of their devices as of late. Some love the software, others hate it. Personally, I don't absolutely despise it, but it c...
  • Cons: The mouse has tons of problems with my Z87 systems. No deal-breakers, but tons of nagging, super annoying issues to deal with. Most of these issues seem to be fairly common problems (but not universal problems) just based on other reviews. After a cold boot, the mouse tracking is terrible. Almost...

tracking

david s., Newegg
24 May 2013
  • Pros: love the on the fly dpi adjusting and when it does track, its accurate.
  • Cons: after 2 weeks it started acting up. the mouse takes 2-3 mins, after boot up, to start tracking. luckily I have my old razer diamondback also to use until this one "warms up". very annoying. I expect more for the price and from razer.

Great Features/Terrible Ergonomics

Lonnie W., Newegg
5 April 2013
  • Summary: If you have medium to large hands or use a mouse for long periods at a time you will suffer from hand fatigue... Think twice before buying this one...
  • Pros: The mouse is loaded with features, software (Synapse) is awesome and very tweakeable. Great looking design/lighting effects.
  • Cons: Simply put, the ergonomic design of this mouse is terrible... It is tiny! Meaning, it is very narrow and the profile-thickness is very thin/short/flat; the part your palm is "supposed" to rest on. It is so small, it fits my 11 year old's hand perfectly... After using this mouse for more than 15-2...

Negative acceleration?

Blake B., Newegg
27 October 2012
  • Summary: Too expensive for the features. 8200 DPI is way too high and not needed. The scroll wheel doesn't have pronounced detents when scrolling, so you tend to "over scroll". It looks great, and has excellent rubber grips and surface texture, but the usability just didn't work out for me.
  • Pros: Good build quality, good grip, and Synapse software.
  • Cons: I play a lot of first person shooters at the competitive level. I upgraded to this mouse from the Logitech G5. At least I *thought* it was an upgrade. At my first impression the Taipan felt small, lightweight, with an extremely quick response. But right away I noticed the mouse tracking was very ...
