Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB Review

👤by Tony Le Bourne Comments 📅05-01-17

On our first outing with the Scimitar RGB mouse, it was easy to dismiss the keyslide feature as a gimmick, but the Scimitar PRO RGB reaffirms that it is useful for ensuring compatibility with the grip styles of the various people wishing to use it. Gone is the slightly jittery implementation of the previous sensor, with now a smooth, and precise 16K DPI sensor that performed flawlessly in our gaming tests. The RGB lighting is attractive and fun, but pales in comparision of the high level of programmability afforded by the CUE software.

This time round it feels very petty to pick up on any real negatives. Some may not like the shape of the mouse, some may not like the weight. But these are always compromises when you consider that there is an additional 12 mechanical keys strapped to the side, and despite that, Corsair have managed to balance the weight of the side buttons near perfect, enabling a good grip and control in game.

The only thing I can think of is that Corsair need to improve the tactle differentiation of each of the side keys for a better awareness as to which button is which. Aside from that, This could be as close to perfect an MMO mouse can be right now and we have been wholly impressed by what a few subtle tweaks can do. Highly recommended.

The Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB has become a monster gaming mouse, its customisability, comfort, quality and precision make it a must have for any MMO fan.
