3 out of 5 eggsPretty Good, Not Perfect

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 of accidental clicks on the side buttons for me, though it might for people with bigger fingers/hands. DPI can be adjusted on the fly and you can change the presets.

Plus, it goes up to 8200, which is good for people who want incredibly high DPI, even if it's just for short spurts like myself. The lights are also sorta cool too, but you can also turn them off if you don't like it.

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 effect when handling the mouse, and more importantly, it's caused fraying of the cable. A regular rubber cable wouldn't have this problem. Really all they needed to do was make the cable come out higher up like it is on most mice. I jury-rigged something that would stop it, and it's fine, but it's a significant design flaw.

I never thought of the software as too intrusive but waiting for it start up can be a pain and it's caused some strange problems when installing OS updates.

There's seemingly no way to clean out below the mouse buttons or perform any maintenance. If I really tried I might be able to disassemble it, but in previous mice I was simply able to lift up the main buttons.

5 out of 5 eggsA great mouse, for more than just gaming!

Pros: Fits my hand, smooth response, easy access buttons, ambidextrous

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Got this mouse to replace an aging copperhead. Part of my choice was that I like to be able to change which hand I use the mouse with to relieve stress in my neck, so it being ambidextrous was important to me. I also have long fingers, so having a mouse that fits my hand was also important. Most mice are to small for comfortable, relaxed mousing. The software packages also make it easy to control mouse actions and to customize the buttons, without overcomplicating the actions. A great mouse so far, and fits my paw just lie the old Copperhead it replaces did.

1 out of 5 eggshorrible customization

Pros: ergonomic shape and overall comfort is good.

Cons: the synapse software is major let down. as bad as the lachesis software is, it offers more functionality. the on-the-fly sensitivity actually works with the mouse wheel, can bind a button to a specific DPI not this clutch press and hold which would be nice in addition but alone is inadequate and last of all does not require an internet connection ff s!!!

Other Thoughts: returning this immediately as no ability to set specific DPI to a button is a deal breaker, a major oversight in the synapse software. but i am sure razer gave it the seal of approval as is anyway. will probably be my last razer purchase as they seem to be dumbing down gamer features which once made their mice a standout product.

1 out of 5 eggshorrible customization

Pros: ergonomic shape and overall comfort is good.

Cons: the synapse software is major let down. as bad as the lachesis software is, it offers more functionality. the on-the-fly sensitivity actually works, the the DPI increments are units of 50 not 100 (synapse), can bind a button to a specific DPI not this clutch press and hold which would be nice in addition but alone is inadequate and last of all does not require an internet connection ff s!!!

Other Thoughts: returning this immediately as no ability to set specific DPI to a button is a deal breaker, a major oversight in the synapse software. but i am sure razer gave it the seal of approval as is anyway. will probably be my last razer purchase as they seem to be dumbing down gamer features which once made their mice a standout product.

5 out of 5 eggsSimplicity at its Core

Pros: The Razer Taipan is as simple as it gets. The ambidextrous construction of the mouse provides the easy use for both right handed and left handed users alike.The rubber sidings on the two sides allows ease of control even in the most intense gaming sessions. With 9 buttons on any side,and with Razer Synapse allowing the user to change the mouse as he/she wants. The Razer Taipan is sure to fit anyone's needs for a Gaming Mouse.

Cons: Because of its simple design. Any hardships with this mouse would have to be user error. Unless its within the Synapse software...

2 out of 5 eggsMy last Razer

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)

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite Company

Pros: The high (true) DPI and customization capabilities allow you to fine tune this mouse to make it most comfortable for you, no matter your gaming style. Paired with Razer Synapse and any other Razer peripherals, you'll be more than content with your setup... you'll own the battlefield.

Cons: The ONLY con I can come up for the Taipan is that the ambidextrous design can be hard to acclimate to, but since it was listed as such, it was not a surprise.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I have owned Steel Series, Roccat, and Logitec peripherals and nothing I've owned fits me better than Razer's. I will be a Razer supporter and customer for life.

4 out of 5 eggsTaipan

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.

Other Thoughts: The extra dpi is worth it. max dpi crew checkin in.
