... of the mouse made it difficult for me to enjoy playing Starcraft 2
15 June 2015
Summary: The buttons on the left side of the mouse made it difficult for me to enjoy playing Starcraft 2. It was edgy and it felt uncomfortable. I decided to buy a different racer mouse that didn't have the left and right side buttons. But otherwise it was a great mouse!
Summary: I'm a huge razer fan. I've been using a razer mamba for about 5 years, and it is still great. The reason I wanted a new mouse was purely an aesthetic one. I'm going for a b&w set-up and wanted a prettier mouse to go with that theme. Unfortunately this mouse looks extremely cheap.
Pros: It's quite good and no-nonsense if you're into more traditional feeling and operating mice. I didn't need a lot of macro buttons or some ultra-ergonomic NASA-inspired mouse. Just allow me to adjust DPI and put a few buttons on the side. It does all of these things pretty well, there's not a lot o...
Cons: My biggest personal gripe is with the braided cable. Not the cable itself, I can understand that's a feature, but the cable comes out of the very bottom of the mouse,and when it falls off of the desk it causes significant friction. It might seem like a small thing, but it can have quite the effec...
Pros: Awesome Program, no confusion on how it works. LOOKS COOL! I like the LEDs
Cons: Cheap Plastic, extremely light. Unfortunately if you have quite a large palm this will feel extremely uncomfortable to you and your pinky will drag drastically. I read later on that the design is ambidextrous it really doesn't feel right in my hand as far as comfort goes, the DPI is pretty wacky ...
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.
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.
Summary: The mouse is a little narrow for my taste.
Pros: Good texture. The DPI adjustment buttons are well placed.
Cons: Middle mouse button conducts electricity. I have zapped the mouse with static electricity just by touching it. Although, it seems like it requires a fairly large charge before it'll zap you. This threshold seems to be higher than other mice.
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.
