On the Other Hand, There's the Razer Taipan


Razer has introduced the Razer Taipan, an ambidextrous gaming mouse that sets a new standard for versatility, form and function. Over its storied history, Razer has placed itself at the forefront of the video gaming industry by combining cutting-edge technology with ergonomic research. The Razer Taipan is the latest expression of the brandís unique approach to engineering and design, the culmination of the years of diligence and validation from the brandís e-Sports professionals.

Razer's ergonomic scientists collaborated with top e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance required in an ambidextrous mouse at the highest levels of gameplay. Its symmetrical shape with narrow footprint and arched back make it comfortable for a wide variety of players. The weight distribution of the mouse has also been tweaked for the most optimal grip profile.

The Razer Taipan packs 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, 9 programmable Hyperesponse buttons, 1000 Hz Ultrapolling/1 ms response time, up to 200 in. per sec./50 g acceleration and a 7' braided fiber cable. The mouse combines laser and optical sensors that accurately calibrate to any surface to provide exceptional pinpoint tracking and also allow Z-axis tracking and liftoff cutoff customization to ensure that aim is always true.

"We have designed the Razer Taipan with the goal of offering pro gamers the best weapon to achieve victory in the competitive world of e-Sports. The Razer Taipan is engineered to deliver an astounding 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System to provide gamers with the fastest mouse tracking, enhanced ambidextrous ergonomics and Razer Synapse 2.0 support. Anything is possible with the Razer Taipan."
- Robert 'RazerGuy' Krakoff, president of Razer USA
