Razer Taipan


Any lefty knows that this is a world made for the right-handed. From automobile gear-shifts to can-openers and scissors, it's tough to find a hands-on experience that's southpaw-friendly. This is especially true of gaming mice, where ergonomic features...

Ambidextrous design. Comfortable grips. Customization and syncing with Razer Synapse 2.0

Uncomfortable thumb-buttons. Chassis is a bit too low and narrow

The Razer Taipan is a gaming mouse for both the right- and left-handed gamer. It's light on features, but offers solid performance.

Review: Razer Taipan mouse


Low profile, symmetrical design gives users balance, comfort and button choices

Button options ; Mouse wheel ; Synapse software

LED options ; Rubber on sides ; Thumb buttons require hand shift

The list of gaming devices is growing larger with each passing day. A large number of companies have entered the gaming input arena, already containing some well-known names in the industry. Many PC gamers know one such name, Razer, as the go-to comp

Razer Taipan


It won't be a surprise to any gamer that the selection of gaming mice available is quite staggering, especially considering the stark contrast between some hardware that boasts twenty or more buttons while others opt for the minimalist design. Few...

The Razer Taipan strikes a perfect balance between form and function with a sleek exterior design and impressive internal features. From its ambidextrous support to the non-slip matte finish, the Taipan is in a class of its own for gaming mice. Gamers...

Without a doubt the WORST mouse I've ever owned


I bought this thing because I was under the false impression that RAZER was a good company. After owning this for a month, I've had it fail on me dozens of times - sometimes the laser just doesn't track in certain directions, or lags out like crazy....

It's pretty ; It feels nice

It doesn't work ; It requires an Internet connection to work, and comes with a bloated driver package with a ToS that reads like Spyware

RAZER Taipan Black 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Dual Sensor 8200 dpi Mouse


Bought this refurbed for my daughter. So far, so good. It even came with the Razer stickers

It would have been nice if you could make it change colors

A great mouse, for more than just gaming!


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...

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

None that I can think of

horrible customization


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...

ergonomic shape and overall comfort is good

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...

Simplicity at its Core


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...

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