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.
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: 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.
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: 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.
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.
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)
Summary: -the scroll wheel doesn't give as satisfying click response as I would personally like, but it gets the job done. -couldn't really tell how flat the mouse is in videos or measurement specs.
Pros: -ambidextrous is a plus for those who covet that particular feature -my hand tends to sweat a little after long usage, but the textured finish makes it easy to just wipe down with a wet cloth and it is as good as new -textured thumb grip is nice to touch and defintely -mouse back forward keys are...
Cons: -maybe its the way I hold the mice (palm grip) but it took a while getting used to not hitting the back/foward buttons with my ring finger -the dpi switches are placed in a rather inconvenient area right below the scroll wheel and there isnt any indicator as to what dpi its currently at
Summary: I've been wanting a Razer product and exactly what I expected, its great worth the money. Im a Gamer, Graphic Designer, and Heavy PC users...suits all needs very well. So far the only set back in my 1 day of use is that I use a KVM switch with a double click of a hot button to go to my laptop and...
