Great mouse, one minor flaw.

Summary: This mouse is just perfect for a simple gaming mouse. With the Synapse program you can adjust the DPI levels and add macros rather easily and it will keep those DPI levels even when using it with my PS4. Good buy with only one complaint. It is an ambidextrous mouse so you can't reprogram the side buttons to perform different functions. Meaning, the front side button on either side will perform the same function no matter which side you press.
Summary: If Razer keep making these mice, i would be very glad to buy another mouse for my own use.
Pros: Ambidextrous design: Use for both hands, so great because i have to use with my left or right hand. High DPI: up to 8.200, fast and high accuracy for gaming. Color: well this makes me feel even more better with a new look, WHITE, i love white too much to buy !!!
Cons: There are only 2 editions, black and white, i prefeer more editions: Chroma, Wireless, etc.

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: The extra dpi is worth it. max dpi crew checkin in.
Pros: I have always loved razer peripherals. I came from the mamba recently when it broke after a year and a half. So I purchased the Taipan for the higher dpi. It is what you would expect from a precision piece of equipment.
Cons: I do feel the thumb buttons could have gone in the groove area where your thumb naturally sits for better ergonomics and easier access for voice applications.
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 love the feel of this mouse, but with razer synapse and "turn LEDs off when screen is off" on the mouse can "freeze/lock up" randomly for less than a second. With the LED setting off, the issue is less noticeable, so next I'm going to try an actual Razer Mouse-pad and see if that's an issue. I will Update this review with that information.
Summary: I bought three different gaming mouses: Razer Taipan, Steel Series Sensei (MLG edition) and Logitech G100s. The Sensei was too big for me. I have small hand and never palm a mouse (I use a "claw" grip). The Razer is small than the Sensei but slightly larger and heavier than the G100s. I don't know whether I like the G100s or Razer Taipan better. The Taipan has better build quality. The matte rubber feels nice and the clicks feel more solid.
Summary: I grip my mouse with my ring finger wrapped around the side of the mouse. Unfortunately, that's exactly where the ambidextrous buttons of the mouse are. Now I'll either have to adjust my ring finger's positioning, or grip my mouse loosely so that I won't accidentally press the buttons. Nevertheless, great gaming mouse; specifications are wonderful.
Summary: A bit expensive for what it is, but you will still be happy for your purchase. A lot of people will prefer the Deathadder but if you prefer a more symmetrical mouse this is the way to go. If you like changing your sensitivity a lot this mouse is nice for that.
Pros: -Good responsive mouse -No Tracking Issues -Comfortable (I have long skinny fingers and this relatively small mouse is great, I actually prefer it to the new Deathadder.) -DPI buttons on the mouse are a nice touch
Cons: -Thumb buttons are a little small -Hard to use the ones on the right side (Probably because it's meant for the lefties)
