There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Taipan doesn't offer the seemingly unlimited customization of some other gaming mice, but its ambidextrous design is very ergonomic, it has enough programmable buttons for most gaming needs, it's sturdy and well-built, and has a very accurate sensor. If you're a lefty, you'll definitely want to try it out.
