This is an excellent mouse.
It is very precise.
I like the mousepad calibration on it.
The mouse I upgraded from is a "Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB" that was getting a little long in the tooth and one of the side buttons started double clicking. I can not use all the buttons without adjusting my grip on the Sabre. There is no mousepad calibration on the Sabre, and the Sabre is only 10k DPI while the M65 is 18k DPI, the 8k difference is definitely noticeable.
I can not use all the buttons on the M65 without adjusting my grip and even then I can barely reach the Sniper button and button 7 with my thumb.
I use a "fingertip" grip on mice and move them around the pad with my fingers.
I have tried many brands, Most brands fall short in weird ways, for example; I don't like how Razor puts the profile button on the bottom of most of their mice.... It should be moved to the top. I love Corsair products as they are usually very well rounded. I have a k65 RGB keyboard by Corsair and absolutely love it. I also have a pair of their wireless headsets. The HS70 Pro. So, just to state, I have tried other brands before and I look at the differences between brands a lot.
Continuing on about the Meeces, I would love it if manufacturers would make smaller mice, for us folks who use fingertip grip on mice. As I stated before, I don't tend to move my mouse around with my wrist and arm, I can use my finger tips and thumb to move the mouse around all three of my monitors without moving my wrist or picking up the mouse.
Removing just barely a half inch from the back of this M65 mouse would make it absolutely perfect for my needs. I would not call the Sniper button "Ergonomically placed" unless you use the palm grip or have larger hands using the other grip styles.
Another thing is the thumb rests on mice, Many of the Corsair mice styles would be far more perfect for me than the Sabre (which I loved the Sabre so much) and the M65, if it were not for the thumb rest... I use my thumb and/or my pink finger slightly touching the mouse pad to get precise movements during FPS Gaming. The slight thumb rest on the M65, which protrudes more than the one on the Sabre, does cause my thumb to travel further when I need to use my thumb touching the mouse pad to get precise movements using my thumb.
As always, the iCUE software just keeps getting better with each new release Corsair makes. There are a few things I would change about it, but that is for another day.
In conclusion, If you are looking for a great gaming mouse, I definitely recommend the M65 RGB Elite.
I fell in love with the look of this mouse when shopping. I love the lines within the design. The RGB is really well done. I was a bit disappointed when I first received the mouse. The left-click felt mushy and less tactile than the right. The side panels where the thumb and pinky rest also have this rough, chalkboard-like feel which was grippy but that feeling has always made me cringe. On a positive note... the left click issue resolved itself after a bit of use... and I got used to the feel of the sides so that that chalkboard feel just doesn't bother me anymore. This is definitely a claw-grip mouse which also took some getting used to, but now I love it. I'll even plug this into my work Mac as I've grown more fond of it than apple's magic mouse by far. I hoped for more customization around the buttons.. like the sniper button, I was hoping to route that to other game controls but it doesn't seem possible (although maybe the iCue software offers a workaround for this. The feet on this mouse slide much better than my previous mouse, and I like that I can adjust the weight to my liking. I love the tactile feedback in both scrolling and clicking the scroll wheel. The only complaint I have left is that the materierial that the two main buttons are made of collect a lot of oil from your fingers, so a vigourous rubdown is needed here and there. Great mouse.

Corsair M65 RGB Elite Review: The FPS Gaming Mouse to BeatThe original M65 was a fantastic FPS mouse. Now, with RGB lighting and better software, the M65 RGB Elite represents a marked improvement. The weights are still a pain to manage, and the grip is not quite as comfortable as it could be. But these
A:AnswerInstall the Corsair iCue software and navigate to the mouse’s settings. You can also finely tune the DPI settings from here. Myself, I’ve customized the colors of my DPI indicator, so I can’t tell you off hand. By default, the numerical settings are as follows (lowest to highest):
400 (sniper button)
