Coming from years of using Logitech M570 thumb trackballs I figured this would be a difficult transition, it was not. The M65 RGB feels very solid with a satisfactory feedback click in all the appropriate places. I selected this mouse for the sniper button, but I don't use it that frequently. What I do love is switching the DPI on the fly to custom X and Y values. I occasionally hit both the #4 and #5 buttons at the same time and will try modifying #4 so it protrudes just a mm or two further to correct this. Like most RGB lit stuff... fun to play with for a few minutes, then ignored.
Had mouse for over a year now and it's great for the most part. The only problem the mouse has are these edges at the the bottom of the mouse that are lower than any other part of the mouse so it just cuts into your mouse pad and can get annoying. Luckily that design flaw can be cut right out with the right tool and since it's only there for cosmetic purposes the mouse remains intact. Other than that it's good, including the software.
-1 Star for fixable design flaw If it wasnt fixable it would have been -2
Wasn't a bad mouse while I used it but it wasn't close to being perfect. It did feel very comfortable in the palm of my hand and the matte finish felt nice while new but does rub off quite easily after heavy gaming use. The steel chassis does help give the mouse rigidity so you don't have to worry about it getting damaged if it ever gets dropped or slammed. The bottom weights are pretty gimmicky and I just left them on so I wouldn't lose them since it affected the weight balance no matter how many you removed. The biggest problem I had with this mouse and I don't know if it was a defect or part of it's design, but there was always a little bit of play on the left and right mouse triggers before it made contact with the switch and it would drive me CRAZY! That alone would not make me recommend this mouse if you're really competitive with gaming as it probably won't be much of an issue if you're fairly casual at gaming. But for me it's a problem especially with FPS games and I wound up passing it on to a friend and got a Razer instead after a few months.
I finally tried another mouse that is not a Logitech (tried razor and hated it) and I must say I am not disappointed. Love the feel of it, the RGB lighting and the way speed sensitivity is setup on it. I bought it to replace my Logitech G302, and love this way more. I learnt one thing, small mice are not comfortable for me. After a few months of use, I gotta say this is probably the best Gaming mouse I have used & I have tried a few products before. I had it at 4stars before for complicated Software (RGB setup), but it is actually not that bad, the software is actually very good, you can customize pretty much anything!
Review Update 2019:
Just before the 2 year mark the "back button" broke. Almost 2 weeks before the warranty ran out, so I am getting it replaced under the 2 year warranty. I had to knock the review to 4 stars since less than 2 years for a mouse is not great. I think my next mouse will be a Logitech again due to reliability. Also, I grew to hate the software for Corsair, I currently have it uninstalled.
After a just a few months of use, the left mouse button stopped responding correctly. After looking for solutions, I've come to realize this is a known issue with this mouse. This mouse is way too expensive to have failed this quickly. I won't say don't buy it, but judging from all the other posts and reviews from people with this exact problem, you're taking a risk. Too bad, it's a really lovely mouse.
Edit: After contacting Corsair support, who were extremely helpful, I received a replacement mouse very quickly. The new mouse has been working perfectly since then. Very pleased with my purchase now.
LIKES: * Feels solid and has some heft to it. * adjustable weights to lighten it * the RGB colours in the front and logo can be customized in the iCue app * buttons feel solid * customizable pointer speed buttons * the targeting button a awesome and good for gaming and any time you want short term slow pointer
DISLIKES * it's definitely a right-handed mouse with a tilt. Lefties will manage, but it's less comfey * the thumb buttons are too easily bumped. I disabled them in the iCue app.
Got the M65 RGB elite to replace my logitech G502 and am super impressed so far. The button placement and shape is much more suited to my smaller hand. The grips are textured like fine grit sandpaper so there's no slipping at all. The only con is the lack of really tactile clicks for the mouse buttons, but they are super sensitive so it's really just a matter of getting used to it. The tracking is much smoother compared to my G502. I'M nailing alot more of my shots in Battlefield V, this is a great mouse for precise movement and sniping. Overall great fps mouse.
Great mouse except the sniper button is in a kind of stupid position and took me ages to get used to. I kept feeling like I was gonna press it when I move the mouse however it's slightly hard to press so you shouldn't hit it by accident. Also because it's hard to press you're unlikely to be able to actually use it. If Corsair were to remake this mouse I would recommend they remove the sniper button as it's kinda pointless.
El mouse es de una excelente calidad para el precio, se siente premium como si costara más, los botines laterales y el botón sniper está puestos en el punto exacto que es un goce apretarlos, la sensación a la mano del mouse es increíble. Por la forma del mouse tienes que abrir un poco más la mano pero es cuestión de acostumbrarse. Trae tres pesas que se pueden quitar, las pesas al igual se sienten de gran calidad. Le pongo 4 estrellas porque después de dos meses de uso, la rueda del ratón al girarla rechina un poco.
