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.
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.
As far as performance goes the optical sensor is amazing. Smooth drags and circles. But for me the shape doesn't work out. I went from a deathadder to this and was hoping to like it. But if you're used to the concave side of the DA or the Mamba mice where you rest your ring finger, this mouse will feel very uncomfortable. Especially so if you have smaller hands. From the front to the back the distance is also shorter than the razer mice mentioned. So palm grip isn't as comfortable. I find it hard to reach the frontward side button and the middle click has far too much resistance. After a week of using it the side button often had random times where they would stop working, Required a computer reset, not just a software reset.
Hand dimensions: Outstretched tip of thumb to tip of pinky. 195mm Bottom of palm to tip of middle finger: 170mm Thumb length: 60mm
Just thought I'd mention my hand dimensions for those who would like a quick fitting reference.
+ Pros: Great sensor and weight. I love heavier mice. Aluminium body and overall great build quality. Fairly long cord, easy for 'invisible' cable management set ups. All the buttons can be reprogrammed it's so wonderful.
- Cons: Weird size for smaller hands and even more so awkward side buttons for shorter thumbs. The RGB aspect is nearly muted during use (This is subjective some people don't like lights in their face) The mouse wheel doesn't light up. Rather there are some lights that sit behind it and I find the lighting quite faint. So some people will be disappointed about their lighting quality.
Bonne souris, avec un bon software. Coté performance NO 1 .bouton sniper qui est accesssible . Mais pour la prise en main,ça laisse a désirer. Jai des main moindrement longue,alors on oublis le palmgrip et meme pour le clawgrip c'est limite .pour ma part,le bouton sniper est inutilisable sans perde ma prise en main initial a chaque utilisation. la base de la sourie qui est étroite, empêche d'avoir une grippe stable et fiable. Faite pour petite main.Si vous avez l'occation de la voir en magasin pour tester votre main, c'est un conseil.
I like this mouse, I like it a lot for shape and weight. It replaced a mad catz rat7 which itself replaced an original microsoft sidewinder mouse. So that ergonomic multi button style with good foreward and aft buttons and dpi adjustment is nice. However my first one died 9 months in, and while the RMA process was positive they were pretty much "yup, here's your number, send it in", being in Canada meant that half the price of the mouse to ship it to the US for the RMA replacement (more if I didn't have a shipping account, more like 40 - 50). I was given an option of paying a deposit to get a replacement in advance but still had to ship it to the US and not getting away with less than 25 dollars to do that in Canada. So instead of advanced I shipped them snail pace and I just bought the same mouse again on amazon. Now that might have been stupid, considering that the first one died in 9 months and the second one may share the same fate as this middle click death seems to be a common occurrence. These will likely die in the same way. So I have mixed feelings on the whole thing. Yes Amazon was 25 dollars cheaper than local, but then I ended up spending 25 dollars to ship them for RMA. So the whole thing leaves me with 2 50 dollar mice averaging about 65 each that should give me 27 months of use (9 old, 9 new, 9 RMA). So it's not bad all things considered. The biggest fail is the bloatware. How does the LED software use 185 - 250mb /ram? and the led's don't do anything if it's not running
There is a random issue that occurs when the software glitches out, and it spams right click until you leave what you’re doing and go into the iCue software to fix the issue. This has happened to me about 3 times since I bought it in February. For some this might be fine, but if you’re a pro or you play competitively, I’d skip this one, as there’s no telling when this could happen. It has cost me 2 CSGO rounds. Other than that, this mouse is great. The software has lots of RGB options and remappability. The sniper button located at the thumb lowers your dpi by default, but I have it remapped to F8 so that I can use it as any other button.
Edit: After having this mouse for 8 months the scroll wheel squeaks very loudly and annoyingly. People ask me about it all the time in discord calls. I hate this noise.
Pros : great build quality. -I dont personally use the sniper button but it's pretty cool -Sensor is awesome and doesn't fidget. -Cable is very nice - its has lots of weight to it so it's not easy to lift like cheap mic which I love. U can also take them out if u want.
Cons : I had a problem in less than a month where it double clicks every time I click once. - the software for the mouse really sucks.
This mouse was reviewed and picked as best mouse for people with large hands by seller as well as another online mouse review.. I can tell you this mouse is significantly smaller than my previous mouse that they stopped producing. In fact the size of this mouse is so small i plan to return it. Ergonomics well the red button on the thumb is slippery so you cannot grab this mouse well, it slips out of your grasp. This product would have been better without that slippery button. My hand gets sore from holding it and i constantly lose my grip. It does however glide across my surface well and the laser is first rate.
