Razer Taipan - 8200 dpi Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse

Razer has finally created a top-of-the-line ambidextrous mouse. The Taipan features a dual 8200 dpi sensor and a slew of options.

Lefties rejoice. There is finally a primium level Razer mouse for everyone.

The Sensor

The Razer Taipan is packs the most insane sensor ever in a Razer mouse. The 8200 dpi (cpi) 4G dual sensor system will compete with the Roccat Kone XTD. The Razer might have a slight edge. It uses both a laser and an optical sensor.

The specs are getting absurd these days. I've been feeling as though it is more about bragging rights than actual functionality. One option is to set your cpi high and turn the sensitivity down in-game. This will allow for a smooth experience. I'll have to give it a try. 

Synapse 2.0 

The Razer Taipan also works with Razer's interesting new software, Synapse 2.0. This is the software that the gaming world has needed for years. Synapse 2.0 is a cloud-based storage solution specifically created to store your custom profiles and configs. You will be able to go from system to system and your profiles will always be there. 

Let me know what you think of the Taipan

 Everyone bashes Razer because they think their mice are garbage. Yes, they are overpriced, but are so worth the investment. However, this mouse is overkill, my 3500DPI DeathAdder has held up for a while now, don't see why you would ever need 8200DPI unless StarCraft 11 would come out.

 We bash them because they are garbage.  I've owned 3 deathadders (got the 3rd one free) and within 8 months the left click broke on all 3.

Since then, I've been using a G9x and have had no issues whatsoever.  Also note that I am using a Blackwidow Ultimate keyboard and love it.  Razer isn't garbage, but their mice are

 I think I'd rather go for the Kinzu or something but this does look interesting. I'll see if I can try it out.

 8200 DPI is stupid.  Honestly, I can't see any higher than 1800 ever being necessary. I use 800 DPI even though my mouse has higher DPI settings.

 I use 3500 DPI on my deathadder. 8200 DPI ia abit overkill.

 I had a copperhead for 5+ years with a max dpi of 3200 and i loved it but I lust recently got the corsair m65 and even though I only run it at around 5400 dpi I just cant see myself going back to the copperhead and loosing that precision.

 Who needs these high DPI mice? I have a 5,600 DPI Naga Molten and it is always set at 2,000 DPI. The only time I set it too 5,600 is when I was scanning planets in Mass Effect 2!

This mouse IS infact practical for gamers with big monitors, or even gamers who use tvs as computer monitors. My 19" is perfect with 5600 DPI. A 35" with a Taipan. Thats good enough. I love razer products. I've been using a Razer DeathAdder for 4 Years, then i bought a Lachesis.

Logan, frankly speaking - are you being sarcastic, or is this a sponsored advertisement post? Because I really can't tell which of the two it is, and I can't believe that you'd honestly say that about razer's synapse 2.0 given all the dataleeching kerfluffle around it.

 It is software that allows you to store your gaming profiles for all of your peripherals and access them from anywhere you have an internet connection. Yes they did have a few hiccups when it was still in beta but thats why they have beta testing. Even though I dont use any razer gear other than my nostromo I have seen the software first hand when using my wifes rig and now days it is very solid and well rounded.

I'm not sure why you seem to despise synapse 2.0 maybe you had a bad experience when it was in beta but I doubt this is a sponsored article and I know he isnt being sarcastic because of his very vocal approval of the software in the recent razer gear reviews.
