Razer is promoting their new Taipan gaming mouse this year at E3. This new mouse is an ambidextrous mouse which means that it is designed to be comfortable for both left-handed and right-handed users. They had roughly 10 stations set up using this mouse along with their Razer Blade gaming laptop.

I got a chance to mess around with it and it's both comfortable and good. The technical aspects explain why it is so good, but the comfort of it is not always guaranteed. The mouse operates at 8200dpi and features laser and optical sensors, along with Z-axis tracking and cutoff. The specs of the product are:

 

  • Ambidextrous form factor
  • 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System
  • Razer Synapse 2.0 enabled
  • Nine (9) programmable Hyperesponse buttons
  • 1000 Hz Ultrapolling/1 ms response time
  • Up to 200 in. per sec./50 g acceleration
  • 2.1 m/7 ft. braided fiber cable
  • Approximate Size : 124 mm/4.88 in. (length) x 63 mm/2.48 in. (width) x 36 mm/1.42 in. (height)
  • Approximate Weight: 95 g/0.21 lb.

 

"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," said Robert 'RazerGuy' Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "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."

 

Retail pricing for the mouse is not bad, albeit a bit higher than what I would usually spend on a mouse. But, if you want the very best for both left- and right-handed players, look no further than the $79.99 Taipan mouse by Razer. It's sure to meet and exceed your needs.
