    Greetings!

    Does anyone own the new Abyssus (2014)? I am thinking of buying it so I would appreciate some input on the mouse. And if anyone could make a comparison (based on personal experience) between old one and new one, that would be great.
    Also, feel free to add Taipan to the mix. I don't prefer it for some reason but I am open to suggestions.

    I know that there are lots of forums dealing with this kind of stuff but i don't want to go through hundreds of reviews that just generalize things or through forums where every other post is: "hur-dur Razir is bad bruh. I looked at me mouze and it died!!!!eleven!!" o_O

    I have the Razer Taipan and I must say, I absolutely love it. The best mouse I have ever had by far. I would recommend it to anyone. I got it on amazon for only $40 too which was a sweet deal.

    I prefer the extra two thumb buttons of the DeathAdder, but the Abyssus is decent.

    Razer Naga Epic is a good choice if you play a lot of MOBAs of like a lot of macros.

    LOL - It would seem that while we all love our own Razer mice, none of us has any valuable input for the question that you actually asked. :D

    Yup, I was hoping for some insight in mouse handling (hardware and software wise) :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I was thinking about Naga Epic too; I have an acquaintance who has a practically unused Naga and is willing to sell it for basically nothing. I am not a fan of buying used stuff (even if they have been used for only a month) but hell, a almost free Naga!! ;)
    Would you be so kind to give me some of handling specs? Hows the grip, sensor, battery life etc...

    I would love to read some feedbacks, I'm interested too!

    I looked at the Razer Naga Epic initially (how could I not, it was PURPLE!!! :D) but I eventually settled on the regular Naga 2013 after it was redesigned. So I can't speak to the Naga Epic precisely, but I can offer some tidbits from other mice that could potentially be applicable.

    As I said, I have Naga 2013, so in regards to comfort, the buttons, the performance, etc they should be very similar. Mine is very comfortable; the buttons are easy to press, but not so easy that I press them accidentially; the R/L click buttons are really nice and have a good feel; the sensitivity and responsiveness works really well. I have rather small hands when it comes to finding comfortable mice and I was terribly worried that the Naga series would be too big, but I've been able to make it work very comfortably. (Okay, so I had to disable some of the buttons in the 7-12 range so the side of my palm could grip it, but I can use 1-6 with ease and 7-9 if I really need to but I doubt I will ever be able to manage 10-12)

    Now, on my laptop I also have the Orochi which connects via bluetooth (or there's a cable/plug as an option) and runs on battery. Now, that batter can last for days and days. I've been mostly using the cord for myself because my laptop seems to just randomly decide it wants to turn off bluetooth, but when I was using the battery I was unable to run it out with a sold weeks use. I had surgery on my foot and was stuck either in bed or on the couch for about a week and a half straight and my laptop was my best friend. Knowing how Razer makes their products (I've had quite a few) I would only imagine that the Naga Epic going wireless would perform up to par with the Orochi.

    I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but hopefully it helps. :)

    The ergonomics for both new and legacy Razer Abyssus are largely similar with the new Abyssus 2014 gaining a new textured rubber side grip. Comparing it to the Razer Taipan, I would say that the Taipan is slightly larger. The Taipan also comes with additional side buttons and an 8200dpi sensor (with the Abyssus at 3500dpi). I would say if you prefer a no frills mouse, go for the Abyssus.

    Thanks for the input! But I am afraid that I got too much accustomed to 5 buttons and that Abyssus won't do the trick.

    I think that I will settle down with Deathadder Chroma. I never used Deathadder before ( :eek:I know :eek: ) but I see that dimensions are identical to my (very) old Genius so I will not have to adapt to new mouse dimensions. And I will have my 5 buttons :D

    Elebeth let me know if you will feel good with Deathadder Chroma!

    Sure! I believe that I will buy it in a week or two and then I will let you know how I feel about it.

    I tried the Razer Abyssus. I definitely love it.

    Do share your impressions! I haven‘t bought a mouse yet because I unexpectedly had to buy a new monitor and next week is Reboot InfoGamer fair so I am delaying my purchases until then.

    It's not big as Mamba and it's not small as Orochi, perfect size for my hand (that it's not big). It's simple and fits well with a Claw Grip + Small Hand. I definitely felt good using it for a while (I will buy it next month, had no money yesterday so I just tried it)

    Just to finish things up; Due to the change on my priority list, my Spectre will have to suffer few more months of abuse before I get new mouse (still not decided which one).
