Razer Lets White Taipan Gaming Mouse Out of Cage

Razer has revealed its white Taipan gaming mouse. This is an ambidextrous mouse built specifically for gamers.

The Taipan gaming mouse carries an 8200 DPI laser sensor, and has a polling rate of up to 1000 Hz over USB. The mouse also has nine programmable buttons, all of which are the company's "Hyper Response" buttons. This basically means that they are pressed very easily, giving you a hair trigger in games. The mouse also has a braided cable along with a bright white LED lit Razer logo. The scroll wheel is also lit.

The mouse is also built to be very comfortable and is supposedly less fatiguing than other gaming mice. As such, Razer says "Fight longer as your foes rage-quit in exhaustion."

Pricing for the unit is set at an MSRP of $79.99; it should be coming to shelves around the globe as we speak.

    This is such a relief. I constantly find myself struggling to move the mouse across the vast expanse of the mousepad toward the end of my gaming sessions. Sometimes those last centimeters are just too much. I've even been considering a gym membership to build up wrist and finger endurance. Thankfully, Razer has heard my struggle.

    try turning your mouse sensitivity up. I only have to move my mouse two inches to move it all the way across the screen. It helps because I just keep my arm in one position, and just move my wrist

    I'm a bit disappointed that they have a an article on a new skin for a mouse with a sensor known to have significant hardware acceleration and unless i have missed it have neglected to have an article on the g502 which has probably the most revolutionary sensor in a decade.
