Fully-fledged MMO gaming mouse are few and far between, so it's always worth making note of when one gets a significant update to its suite of included features. The SCIMITAR ELITE is CORSAIR's much-lauded member of this exclusive club - recognisable through its array of 12 buttons on a slidable panel where you thumb would rest - that's receiving a wireless variant to bring it in line with the rest of their plethora of gaming rodents.

The CORSAIR SCIMITAR ELITE WIRELESS incorporates the proprietary Slipstream Wireless technology for lag-free 1ms gaming over a 2.4GHz band shared with other Slipstream hardware. Alternatively, users can opt for Bluetooth wireless where Slipstream is impractical or not supported. Under optimal conditions the mouse will operate for up to 150hrs on a single charge. 2000Hz polling and 90-minute charge-to-full are additional features power-gamers will appreciate.

The SCIMITAR ELITE increases responsiveness and reliability by equipping both left and right mouse buttons with optical switches, guaranteed for 100 million clicks. A 26K DPI CORSAIR Marksman optical sensor maintains precision whatever the title and 100% PTFE low-friction feet will help make this high-tech tool feel light as a feather on a gaming surface, despite weighing in at approx. 110g.

CORSAIR's patented Key Slider panel allows users to subtly change the positioning of the 12-button array panel, helping you tailor the mouse to your grip rather than the other way around. In total, the SCIMITAR boasts 16 programmable buttons - ready for macroing your most powerful spells - and on-board storage for three profiles if you need them.

In its aesthetic finishing touches, the SCIMITAR ELITE WIRELESS opens up three illuminated zones for per-profile RGB LED customisation. This also has the side-effect of helping you tell the active profile at a glance, which can be ideal when quickly switching between character specialisations, classes, or entire games.

The CORSAIR SCIMITAR ELITE WIRELESS has an MSRP of $129.99 (excl. Tax)/£129.99 (inc. V.A.T), and is available worldwide from or regional partners. For more information visit the product page.
