If you are expecting the usual “gamers review” on this mouse, then you might be disappointed with this article.
I used to work at an IT distributor and when BlueTrack mice came onto the scene a few years ago and I loved the idea that a mouse can track on everything from wood, to leather and even plastic. So needless to say, when I was asked to review this mouse I was super amped, not just because it was a gaming mouse, but also because I knew the 8200dpi 4G dual sensor system was going to blow my mind.
I am a very simple creature when it comes to gaming. I want to do it whenever I want and where ever I want. So obviously the ultimate test regarding this mouse was going to be testing it on a bunch of different surfaces in some very random circumstances.
One thing that boggled my mind a bit was the cord, with it being 2m long, I can’t help but wonder who actually needs a 2m cord for a mouse? Here I am illustrating, using myself at 1.71m for scale, the length of this cord.
With this being a gaming mouse, I tested on a game where I needed precise accuracy, so I played none other than Peggle, and yes, I kicked ass. Also bear in mind that I played this while situating myself on the floor in front of my 3D TV.
After kicking unicorn ass on Peggle, I moved on to the next great thing geeks and gamers do, building forts. After I completed a master piece, I fired up my laptop and plugged in the mouse and went on to do some ridiculously hard work in MS Paint, which obviously also requires either a steady hand, or a ridiculously good tracking mouse. Needless to say, the Razor Taipan outdid itself once again…. Tracking on nothing more than a bumpy blanket, my mind was blown with the steadiness of the cursor.
Enough now, all this testing so far was indoors, it was time I took this bad boy outside. I’ve been in a situation before of being locked out of my house or even stuck in traffic, and trying to work with a track pad is simply not the way I operate. I used the Razor Taipan on the roof of a HardBody truck and even went as far to use it on grass. Expecting my cursor to start jumping, Razor Taipan responded with a “screw you I work on EVERYTHING”.
Every single thing I used the mouse on, it worked, and beautifully at that. Whether you are a gamer or just a geek who likes fancy things that light up and you like pushing buttons, this mouse is for you.
Super sexy ergonomic design
Ambidextrous programmable buttons
Dual sensor system

The ridiculously long cord
I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
