To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Pros: This mouse had good reviews, nice size in the hand for me, good weight and features that i liked. Worked great for a bit.
Cons: Scrolling issues just after a month. Contacted Corsair, fast warranty help. HOWEVER, to get warranty you have to pay to send it back to California. A $70 mouse costs $40 to send back if insured with registered mail. That's a no!!!!!. Sent back on the cheap, still $20. Waiting to see if Corsair will send me a new one. Would I buy another one, unknown at this time.
Returned product. I really wanted to support Corsair and loved their hardware. The design of this mouse is great, really fits well in the hand and the buttons are placed in nice spots. What kills the whole Corsair line for me is their CUE software (Corsair Utility Engine). The software is plagued with issues, a quick search online will show you this.
My issue in particular was my programmed buttons on the mouse would randomly stop working, and I'd have to restart the software. This would occur even halfway through a game. Their tech support was unable to resolve the issue. The CUE software really kills the whole peripheral line for Corsair.
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.
Originally I wanted to order the Corsair Glaive RGB mouse. After reading the reviews on the M65 it seemed like a sure winner. To my dismay I was not pleased with the unit. Its appearance and build is very nice, it is a corsair after all. However ergonomically its big and I found it uncomfortable in some aspects. The real upset with this unit was the fact the aluminum housing has edges underneath the mouse. It was actually dragging across my Corsair RGB mouse pad with a great deal of resistance. Enough I was worried about it damaging my lovely mouse pad. I read some forums online and this is not a new issue with this mouse. Also, the side buttons would not stay bound to actions while gaming. All in all I was not happy with the units performance and sent it back to amazon. I then purchased a Logitech G502 and could not be happier with the G502.
I was in love with this mouse when I first got it. I left a five-star review, sadly I will have to change that today. After a few months of use, my left click is broken for no reason at all. It's unresponsive very frequently at random times! Every 4th or 5th click I make doesn't register. Whether I'm editing a video or playing some games, I will miss a few clicks! Sometimes it happens that two or three clicks in a row never register. This is very annoying! WhenI'm dragging over clips to my timeline or slicing them, this really agitates my workflow. When I'm online playing an FPS and I can't shoot other players... I can't.
I really like this mouse. It looks fantastic, and the RGB lighting looks great and can be customized to suit almost an endless assortment of tastes.
It is super solidly built, with lots of metal and very little plastic. This, of course, does make the mouse pretty heavy so if you will have to take that into consideration. However, although on the heavy side, I haven't felt the need to remove the weights on the bottom of the mouse (another great feature if you feel the need to lighten up the mouse some). The sensitivity can be set to far higher than I will ever need in game, but it's cool to have it. In terms of in-game performance, I have no complaints besides the buttons on the side, which I feel are a little bit on the too small side.
Although I can't speak from a large sample size, as I haven't tried all that many, I personally think that Corsair's iCUE software is great and fairly easy to use. They allow lots of customization not only in terms of RGB lighting in different areas, but also setting up sensitvity and calibration for the surfaces you will use the mouse on. Overall, it's a great gaming mouse with good build quality, looks and features.
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 :)
Bought this for my son at Christmas. Had to RMA it in March. Did another RMA on that one in August but should have done it sooner. Problem is the left mouse button; the most used button. It clicks, but the click doesn't register until you press harder. Causes all kinds of havoc when click'n'dragging or playing games. Found lots of reports in forums about this problem well after the fact. I'm done with it and we bought a Roccat Kain 120 AIMO.
This mouse is, as a friend said, obtuse. In comparison, the Corsair Harpoon was nice to use out of the box. This mouse requires getting used to in terms of it's physical feel and was also less responsive.
I found the left click to have a "dead spot" which made left clicks potentially take longer to activate. The bottom of the mouse is not tapered enough and seems to be causing extra drag which I did not experience on the Harpoon. This design flaw is potentially solved if one was willing to take the time and file down certain areas on the bottom of the mouse. The mouse is much heavier than the Harpoon, even with the weights out, so that could be causing extra drag.
The lighting and extra buttons are nice, if you really need them. I found the snipe button useful. I did like the DPI light indicator. The mouse is wide which may be better for someone with a wider hand.
For a mouse advertised as aluminum I am disappointed the top is a rubberized plastic. That material will eventually wear down and end up feeling sticky. An aluminum top would have been better.
Over all the mouse has potential but I am left scratching how it passed design inspection.
