Warning: Highly Venomous
The Razer Taipan, a choice gaming mouse amongst professional gamers, has been upgraded with a powerful new sensor in its sleek body. The 8200dpi 4G laser sensor offers exceptional tracking precision with zero interpolation for high-performance wired gameplay.
The Pro-Gamer’s Choice
“I like so many different things about this mouse, from the reliable performance to the accurate tracking, but the comfort definitely takes the crown. I didn't think an ambidextrous mouse would be more comfortable than an ergonomic one, but Razer managed to nail it. The mouse is fairly light and I noticed my average score in games go up after switching. After daily use for several months, it still looks and performs like it is brand new.” - Steven “Korok” Ashworth Team Liquid | Dota 2
Improved ambidextrous ergonomics
Designed with extensive feedback from professional gamers, the Razer Taipan’s ambidextrous form suits a wide variety of grip styles and hand sizes. Whether you’re right-handed or a south-paw; use claw, palm or fingertip-grip, this mouse stays firmly in hand and comfortably so for extended periods of gaming
From Razer’s very first gaming mouse to now, our mice buttons are designed to be hair-trigger sensitive. This means as soon as you think it, your finger has already mouse clicked it. Utilizing highly durable micro switches, there is a pronounced tactile feedback to your fingertips with each actuation, so you get the absolute assurance that you’re winning with precision
8200dpi 4G laser sensor
The Razer Taipan is outfitted with the most advanced and configurable sensor yet, the all-new 8200dpi 4G laser sensor. It tracks so precisely, you always hit targets exactly where you need to. It can also be calibrated to your specific surface, and has adjustable cut-off to lift-off tracking, empowering you with more tournament-grade control than ever before.
Green LED lighting
The Razer Taipan features bright green lighting on the mouse scroll wheel and Triple-Headed Snake logo.
Side buttons for more ways to kill
Whether you’re left- or right-handed, buttons have been strategically placed on either side of the Razer Taipan that can be easily programmed and actuated to execute any command, skill, macro to put you ahead of the competition.
Razer Synapse enabled
Enhance your Razer Taipan experience with Synapse, Razer’s hardware configurator with online cloud support. From sensitivity to lift-off tracking to surface calibration, you’ll be able to customize every detail. Better still, this data is saved in the cloud, so you can play your way wherever you are. Razer Synapse keeps your Taipan in peak performance via automatic driver and firmware updates so you’ll be on top of your game, all the time.
Top Customer Reviews
- 9 fully programmable buttons
- rubberized side grips
- Insane DPI if you really needed it that high
- Braided cord for non tangle
- Dual 4G laser
- Very good looking (has metal mesh under right/left click buttons)
- Green LEDs match my Deathstalker (ymmv!)
- Uses Razer Synapse 2.0, which I find to be... meh. If I was someone who was constantly going to different spots and places to play my games and took this mouse with me, I might appreciate it... but then again most of my games I use the same keybinds as the rest, so... maybe not. Either way, it's not so much a con as a "just saying." I've had this mouse for about a month now, and I still can't really come up with a con, it's technically perfect.
Overall I love it (replaced a Razer Orochi I've had for a few years). Being left handed, it's hard to find a decent mouse that has enough buttons but also isn't "ergonomically" designed in that stupid right hand format that's impossible for me to use. Nothing against right handed people, but right handed only peripherals piss me off.
Not sure about the people who said you can't program the 4 side buttons independently, I have all 4 side buttons set to different keystrokes and they all work fine.
If this mouse broke tomorrow I'd buy it again.
The Taipan comes with support for Razer's Synapse 2.0 software that allows you to customize your mouse for various games and programs. I haven't played around with it too much, but it seems to work fine. You can adjust whether the mouse wheel and logo glow or not using it (the wheel glows continuously, the logo fades in and out).
The cable has an interesting "braided" texture that is supposed to reduce tangling. It's about 2 meters long but I have it all stretched out so that particular issue hasn't arisen. To me, it feels nicer than the typical rubber cable.
About the only complaint I have with this mouse is that the mouse wheel doesn't "spin" like my old mouse if you give it a good flick, so scrolling through long webpages takes a bit more effort. But I understand the justification for it (games often need precise incremental clicks of the mouse wheel rather than fast spins), and it's not a serious complaint. I'm sure over time I'll adapt to it, and I suppose those scroll bars on the side exist for a reason. The scroll wheel itself has a nice rubberized surface that feels nice and doesn't get slippery, and has little bumps on it to help ensure you scroll just as far as you want and no further.
I used the deathadder 2013 for 3 months, and overtime I grew to dislike it because the rubber side grips were so small and designed on the convex shape of the deathadder that my fingers were constantly slipping off, and being a fingertip grip, this was very distracting. The taipan also has rubber side grips, but they are much bigger and are placed on a concave surface, so your fingers will never want to let go!
amazingly high dpi and dual sensor system! it is very reliable and very accurate and high quality
no finger or wrist strain over hours of gaming/usage
overall very high performance
cannot palm grip the mouse
left side buttons can possibly get in the way if you palm grip, but you can always disable them on synapse 2.0
ring and pinky finger may take a while to adjust placement
If you don't palm grip, this is the mouse for you! I used fingertip grip before, but with the taipan it feels like a mixture of claw and fingertip grip. The design of the mouse can be weird for you ring and pinky finger to find a good home, but when you adjust your grip(took me about 15 minutes) it will be very comfortable and strain free forever!
Overall this mouse if perfect for anyone that does not palm, and wants a sick looking, comfortable, high performing gaming mouse! I highly recommend buying this over the deathadder for only slightly more in price(unless you palm grip). I plan on using this mouse for many many years, it's perfect! Take a chance and try a new mouse!
Optical sensors are truly superior in my opinion to laser and hybrid sensors. I had a Razer Abyssus once and it tracked much better than the Taipan and I recommend it to anyone as a cheap gaming mouse. Though, if I were to suggest a mouse to a serious gamer I'd suggest something with an a3090 sensor, which is considered the best most stable gaming mouse sensor there is. I'm personally going buy a Zowie AM, as Zowies are popular among the best of FPS gamers out there. Zowie is solid and all business. No marketing gimmicks, no flashing logos, just business and they deliver on that.
Let's talk Synapse 2.0. It slows everything down. Response time, it has prediction and smoothing that just make everything feel laggy and disconnected. It's just bad, a good idea that doesn't and probably will never work. Zowie mice have no software and no drivers, no middleman interping things, it's just raw data from mouse to reticle @ 1000hz native. There's no interpolating.Read more ›
