Showing 1-10 of 22
A bit dissapointed given the price.

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.
Not as ergonomic as I hoped. Prefer the Deathadder and a palm grip.

Summary: I got a Taipan, thinking its a Razer mouse and its ergonomics are probably comparable to the Deathadder and other Razer mice - they're all pretty comfortable. In the past, I really liked the Imperator, and then the Deathadder 2013 is what I have been using. The Taipan is OK, the only reason I would use this mouse would be...
Summary: Everything works well, but i found it to be too small, it was kind of uncomfortable with the sharper edges and the buttons on the right side, my ring finger accidentally pushed them regularly.
Summary: The mouse has what I consider one of the best shapes for gaming mice out today. I've tried the G9x, G700, G400, Razer Deathadder, and Steel Series Sensei. Of all of those, I believe (personal opinion, of course), the Taipan has the best shape suited for gameplay. The narrow and shallow form factor allows for really quick and fast movements (this isn't related to the DPI, but my being able to physically move the mouse), that, quite honestly, did help a lot with my...
Summary: The first one I got the laser didn't even work, the second one seems to be ok but every once in awhile it seems like the mouse skips, which is really annoying while playing a fps because even a small skip can throw off you aim. It looks cool and it's alright for comfort but for a Razer product I am disappointed. If you want a gaming mouse I'd suggest getting Razer's Death Adder. The Death Adder is more comfortable and more reliable for the same price range.
Great mouse with some minor issues, not so great software support

Summary: Really nice ambidextrous mouse, feels great in both hands. Goods: - Feels great - Very precise - Works perfect on all surfaces I tried (where some of the other mice fail - I don't use a mousepad) Bads: - Mouse wheel doesn't work that well, grinds and stalls a bit when scrolling down - this might be a manufacturing defect but it's not an excuse for a 70 quid mouse. I would return it but it's a hassle.
Summary: Having had my left-handed Deathadder for quite a few years and it starting to look a bit tatty from all of the abuse it's had over the years I decided that I would investigate other options. My criteria for a mouse are pretty simple: >1800DPI and it has to be left-handed or ambidextrous. I'm a gamer and things like pretty LEDs are desirable :D I use a claw grip with the base of my palm touching the back of the mouse.
Summary: Très bonne souris en général. Par contre, ce n'est pas la meilleure souris pour Gamer. Pro: -Bon capteur et précision -Excellente finition -Bon grip -Beau design Contre: Beaucoup trop lourde (Deal breaker) Contrôle de qualité douteux.
