My m65 mouse failed after a year. I opened a case with Corsair, got an RMA, paid for shipping to send my mouse. They received it, approved the replacement and then my case got stuck before the final « shipped » step. After over a month, i asked for an update, they said they were transfering my case to customer support but no one will answer. My ticket is in limbo and i lost a mouse and the money of the insured shipping to send it to them. I’m really deceived by Corsair’s customer service and cannot recommend buying this product because of this.
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.
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.
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
The mouse came in with a little yet terribly annoying issue but I still feel like it deserves 5 stars.
The part circled in red was ever so slightly lower than the rest of the mouse and its edge was quite sharp. So the first time I used it I ended up scratching my mousepad. I simply dulled the edge of that little part with a nail file and now everythin is great.
The mouse is very precise, has a nice weight to it, which is customisable, and feels great in my relatively large hand. The two thumb buttons could be pushed forward a bit in my opinion but I quickly found them while gaming which is perfect. Corsair software is as good as you can ask. The mouse has fully customizable DPI presets, plus the sniper button that’s also customizable. The RGB is decent, a little subtle but it’s great this way.
It is without a doubt the best mouse I’ve ever used. Highly recommended
