After 2 months of using this mouse, the left click started to fail, sometimes it just won't register. Plugged in my old logitech to see if it was my PC, but everything was fine with the logitech mouse. Made some quick search on the Corsair forum and it seems that the missclicking is a frequent problem corsair users have. Don't buy this gen of mouse! It's a shame because the ergonomic is great and the mouse is really lightweight.
As the title describes, it's an awesome mouse on the surface, but I had mine have left click issues not even 2 months after purchase. Totally unacceptable for a product of that price. And I'm not alone with that issue. Doesn't seem to be just bad luck. This issue is the most common issue if you research the web about it. So what that tells me is, it's a design/engineering issue, and not just poor QC.
My theory is this mouse have a design flaw that makes the left clicking issue a thing. It can't be the switch failing after only 2 months. It's either something with the contacts inside, or it is a software/driver issue. Can't know for sure. The issue just appears, then disappears. When a switch fails, it fails consistently. It doesn't just fail for 2 hours, then go back to life with 100% of the clicks registering as if nothing happened for 12 hours, etc.
The issue seemed to surface when I played games where you fast click a lot. For example, an Hack & Slash game, or a Multi-Player Shooter. When playing slow paced Single-Player Shooters, or just using the OS for general purposes, the issue tended to completely disappear.
What's worst is Corsair doesn't seem to acknowledge it as being a known issue, even though multiple people are reporting the same thing. I also had to pay for RMA shipping and import fees, so I just told them to drop the case. They then gave me a pre-paid shipping UPS label, which redeems them a bit. But I had to complain to get it.
I still had to go through the hassle of buying another cheaper mouse as a temporary replacement, and ship that one. After only two months of the purchase, for an almost 90 CAD mouse. Not impressive at all. So you can take your chance and buy it, it's maybe a hit or miss. I just hope not all M65 Elites have this issue, and that my replacement will be a good one.
But as I said, there's certainly a good batch from this model with that issue. So beware. If it wasn't for that issue, that product would be a 4-5 Stars. The synergy the mouse has with other Corsair RGB products through the iCUE software is really neat.
Avoid this mouse it has a very high risk of the left click button failing and not registering, would take me sometimes 8 clicks for it to do anything, corsair knows of the issue and refuses to acknowledge that it has one, this was my 3rd and final mouse of th same kind in less then 1 year only lasts 2-3 months then goes to crap if you don't believe me check the forums, other then that major flaw it was good while it worked.
the old version before this one had it, and I have hd 4 m65 mice over the last 2or 3 years
As many others, I had the left-click problem within two months. It's really a shame because the rest of the mouse is perfect. But, without a functional left-click, it goes right into trash. It was my first and last corsair mouse.
Well I have always been a Logitech mouse and keyboard guy but after being blown away with my "CORSAIR K95 RGB PLATINUM Mechanical Gaming Keyboard" Amazing Keyboard I thought I would try there mice. Picked up the "Corsair M65 RGB Elite Tunable FPS Gaming Mouse, Black, Backlit RGB LED, 18000 DPI, Optical" I found the grip took time to get used to but the thing that has turned me of is the left mouse button didn't even last a year I have never in my 30 years of Pc gaming ever have a Logitech mouse fail on me guess im going back to Logitech :)
Upgraded from a really old mouse that i loved, A Rat-5, which was an incredible mouse, but i kept getting double click issues. Spent the past few days adjusting to this one, I cant say its bad, feels ok in the hand (still prefer my Rat-5). Anyway, I have a lot of corsair products, and have been quite pleased with their products, but after a few days of owning this one, im already having left click issues. My clicks dont always register, when it happens, sometimes it doesnt register 3 clicks in a row. hopefully the replacement is a bit better in quality! Edit: After getting the replacement, a few months later, its still back to the faulty left click, and occasionally the middle click as well. Bad Mouse, STAY AWAY. Dropped from 2 star to 1 star.
Había comprado otros mouses "gamer" y este los supera por mucho, al ser una marca como corsair, es garantía de calidad. Hablando del producto especificamente, el mouse para mi gusto es pesado con las tres pesas pero si se le quitan es muy ligero. El botón de "sniper" se me hace inútil, ya que se debe mantener presionado para reducir los dpi. y creo que la fuerza con que debe presionar es excesiva y te resta presición, ademas de que en muchos juegos eso se puede configurar para que al hacer zoom se reduzcan los dpi. Y otra cosa es que no se le puede asignar como un botón extra. Solo sirve para reducir los dpi momentáneamente. Ese es el unico punto en contra. El sensor se siente super preciso y por ultimo los efectos de iluminación no sobresalen pero lucen bien.
El mouse dejó de funcionar el mismo día que fué entregado. Al parecer hay problemas conocidos sobre los controladores Corsair con Windows que simplemente no se han podido mitigar, especialmente en este modelo. Corsair te procesa un reemplazo si por alguna razón no puedes devolverlo por Amazon, pero definitivamente no volvería a usarlo por esta razón. Para arreglarlo (no permanentemente, cabe mencionar) tuve que modificar el registro de Windows y no creo que sea algo que un usuario común tenga que hacer para hacer funcionar correctamente un diapositivo "plug and play". Ahora, cuando si funciona, tiene excelente precisión y es muy cómodo para manos largas. El botón de clutch me pareció muy útil para cambiar de disparar a moverme rápidamente jugando con snipers en Overwatch. Si se lograra mitigar el error de controladores sería el mouse perfecto.
