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.


So rad:

  • Super sexy ergonomic  design
  • Ambidextrous programmable buttons
  • Dual sensor system

Makes us sad:

  • When I had to return the mouse
  • The ridiculously long cord
