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...

Amazing mouse !


This mouse is amazing, even if you are not a gamer and are looking for a mouse to use this is the one! You really get what you pay for, the feeling of this mouse is amazing. It makes me feel as if I have better control over my computer

Too hard to use the buttons in the right side

diamondback 3g, new and improved!


razer make some of the best mice available. the materials look and feel great, and the software has come on a long way as well. would love to see a version of this mouse appear like the diamondback, with a transparent rear section. and hopefully...

i am a huge fan of the old razer diamondback 3g. i've used almost every mouse brand out there, and i keep coming back to razer. i have an ouroboros at home, and wanted a wired mouse for work ; if you have ever used a diamondback, or an ouroboros,...

would have liked slightly bigger teflon feet. and for those with smaller hands, the thumb buttons are slightly forward. but i'm seriously nit-picking there

Simple, effective, and comfortable.


I've always wanted to buy this mouse, but the $80 price tag was a little steep. I bought this on sale, and for $50, it was well worth the price. I've noticed the Taipan has come down in price a bit, which makes them a better value. I like the feel of...

Light weight, ambidextrous mouse. Very sensitive main buttons with short travel time. Side buttons are easy to access. The textured rubber sides gives the user plenty of control without worrying about your fingers slipping on the sides. The plastic...

I don't like that a lot of the software features are cloud based and require logging into Razer's cloud servers. The mouse will work if your internet goes down, but you won't be able to access your stats and heat maps. Not really a huge negative, but...

I hate this mouse


I have contacted support many times about this mouse and they just tell me to recalibrate it. I do that and that seems to fix the lag on start up but not the connection issue. On my times I have told friends how much I hate this mouse and how much...

When it works it seems to work on many different surfaces, it fits my left hand

This mouse is TERRIBLE, customer service is TERRIBLE. I only use this mouse with my PC and I also have a macbook that I carry around all the time. This mouse has made me use my PC much less, the reason why is I always have to unplug and replug my mouse...

Awesome mouse


Comfortable feel in your hand. Responsive adjustable sensitivity. Customizable buttons, and works for lefties as well as righties ; Razer Synapse software is not as horrible as some people claim. It works fine for me and it was nice to have my setting...

The logo light fades in and out and some people find it annoying but it can be disabled, it's either a breathing pattern or off. The scroll whell light is a separate setting
