    First, I have large hands, mostly in the palm. Total length is 8 1/4". My palm is 4 3/4" long and 3 3/4" wide (excluding thumb) while my middle finger is 3 1/2" long. This is important because it alters my grip with most mice. I usually use a modified version of the claw grip. However due to how long my palm is, my wrist is usually anchored in place (on my poo pisiform bone) and most of my mouse movements are done by rotating my wrist and extending or contacting my fingers as the mouse moves. I really should learn to use my elbow. This causes a lot of pain in gaming on my pisiform bone, which its noticeably swollen (my right hand it 1/4" larger than my left). I'm 37 as of writing this, and I've had pain and swelling there depending on how much gaming I do since I was a teen (darn you LMCTF) This mouse does not help with that. I'm still looking for a mouse large enough to get my hand up and off the pad into a true palm grip. I'm currently using an IMAK RSI Smart Glove to provide some relief for the pain. I'm in IT by trade, but do more typing that mouse work, and use a trackball for working (MX Ergo as the excellent Optical Trackman has been long out of production). My previous gaming mouse was the Logitech G700 and my spare was a Logitech G602. However, size isn't something I usually hold against a mouse, they are all wrong for me. So lets talk about what this one does right and wrong. The moving slider pad: I thought at first a gimmick, but when I got the RSI glove I needed to adjust it further back as my hand got moved about half an inch further from the mouse. It was great to be able to adjust that to where I needed it. While the marked key helps me know where my thumb is, my thumbs are large enough that the other texture and key shapes don't quickly translate yet to my brain for super accurate clicking. I'll get there. Scroll wheel: Pretty, and serviceable, but scrolling feels it has just too much drag. Texture: A softened texture, but a little too slick for me I don't have quite the grip on the mouse that I want. Right grip: I didn't think I would use this. I do, I like the texture and the return grab it gives me. Wish more of the mouse had it. Lighting: Wish I had more individual lighting control on the pad, but then again, I'm not looking at it. I'd likely set only one light on as a quick visual check for where I am. I type almost completely by feel but occasionally use my eyes to reorient myself. iCue: I have Corsair's K95 and Void Pro, so this is ground I'm familiar with. I've had only one issue, says my mouse needs a firmware update, but won't let me do it. This mouse does not help with that. I'm still looking for a "Big" mouse that lets me use a real palm grip. That said, the adjustable slider on the thumb pad is pretty darn helpful for my grip style. However

    awesome alternative to razor w/12 prog. buttons

    I was a Razor fanboy for a long time (BUT NOT ANYMORE), I liked the feel of the mice and the 12 buttons on the side as I am a gamer, my first mouse from them died 1 month outside of the warranty period, the next one a razor naga chroma, died after only 5 months and razor was horrible to me about replacing it, trying to make me pay for return shipping, after sending my mouse in over a month and a half ago no one seems to be able to find it...hmm. Between all that and the constant neverending Razor Syapse updates that require a restart and never work right I was just done. So, I went in search of a logitech mouse and found nothing with buttons on the side like razor, then I walked into bestbuy and found this Corsair mouse... I said ok i'll give it a try, their RAM is killer how will the mouse be? Well, the mouse itself is fantastic, and what's more, you can MOVE the entire side area with the buttons forward or backwards nearly an entire inch, so depending on your hand size there's always a right spot for you with the simple turn of a included hex key. Moving on to the software... sweet baby Jesus... it takes a virgin blood sacrifice on a full moon to figure this s**t out...I'm not kidding. It's backarsewards at best but once you do figure it out everything is fine... for the simple sake of never having to deal with Razor again I will recommend this mouse to anyone. After several youtube videos I was able to use the software and program the mouse accordingly. At a later date when I have the time i'll upload a more concise tutorial than I was able to find on youtube, in hopes to save ppl some time. Bottom line? The mouse works great, there are no constant software updates in fact i've not had a single one, and no issues with the mouse at all. Boom. Got a question? comment on the review and I'll help you if I can. sidenote- the cord is a bit shorter than i'd like for my current setup, but it's long enough for the vast majority to not have any issues.

    Great mouse for all games

    Posted

    I was sceptical about a 12 button mouse since the most buttons I have ever delt with was the G502 but this mouse makes gaming easy and natural and the biggest thing gamers hate is reaching for keys and looking for ways to rebind for a fuild set up which this mouse does . Perfect for Games with several weapon slots, fortnite you can build quicker and naturally without sacrificing wsad movement and slots, PUBG you can bind a Left and right peak along with weapons slots, you can even play one handed in some games like league. The software is easy to understand and each input and led is fully customizable and includes a macros for guys trying to turn single fire into auto fire or making your fortnite builds quicker by binding F1-F4 and left click together to instantly place ramps with less effort. Cons are buttons are too close to each other and flat so if your trying roll certain points on your thumb to click 1,2,3 there is a chance you will click 2 buttons at once , practice will overcome this issue , the mouse is tiny and the number slider needs to go forward more so if you like to play with your entire palm hurdled over the mouse than buttons will take effort to press but if you claw grip or rest your fingers more on the mouse it's prefect.

    Corsair. Corsair..

    After such great experiences I've become a huge fan of corsair products, so I decided to switch my current MMO mouse to this one. I'm definitely not disappointed. The mouse has such a smoother feel than the mouse it was replacing. The CUE software does have a high learning curve, but once you understand it, it's amazing. You can create profiles that become active with certain executables; for example I made a World of Warcraft profile that would only become active when World of Warcraft was running. So now when I launch the game, the mouse shifts to my WoW color scheme and the side buttons become what they were set to by myself in the software, but once the game is closed the mouse returns to normal(whatever you set to normal). For FPS players you can set buttons for melee, crouch, etc. and then a dedicated button for sniping(lowers the DPI while held). The mouse feels sturdy, well build and comfortable under my hand. I really didnt want to spend $70 on a mouse....but this was well worth it. I will update this review in the coming months.

    What a Razer Naga should have been...

    Hi folks, pretty much never write reviews about products. I will not going into extensive details. Cosair makes quality products unlike Razer. I have used variations of the Naga over the year and loved the multi thumb buttons. Problem was Razer had no competition in this market and their products break too quickly. Eventually Logitech release a version to compete. I tried Logitech and didn't find it comfortable. Then Corsair came to the game.making a mouse very similar to the Razer Naga but better in every way. The parts aren't made with cheap plastics. The thumb buttons are adjustable for comfort. It is just a nice mouse. As mentioned in the title what a Razer Naga should be. I only have one minor complaint about this mouse which can easily be fixed through a firmware update on the device. When I game I use programs like Discord or TeamSpeak. My Push to Talk Key(PTT) is Mouse 5. Which is mouse forward on a standard mouse. They have a builtin feature where if you hold that button for about 8-10 second it resets the mouse to its defaults. Completely messing up on your key binds on the mouse. Other than that this is an amazing mouse. I expect it to last a long time. Would definitely recommend to people who want a quality MMO mouse.

    The mouse is great. The CUE software is a raging dumpster fire. The software is pretty klunky, and was clearly designed by people who are utterly clueless when it comes to software design and tool implementation. One example that bears this out: You can't do obvious, simple tasks such as copying a presets or parts of presets to other profiles. You can build a library of common functions, but the fact you can't really do anything else (like, if you have Corsair headphones...you can't copy EQ presets, or if you own a Corsair KB, making use of things you've done with other profiles in new ones is obtuse, and really difficult as you have to recreate it for every profile) Horribly documented. You have one real choice: trawl and search through the corsair forums. Considering the prices for Corsair products....the lack of documentation is pretty staggering.

    Comfortable, fun mouse even for non-gaming use

    I picked this mouse up for two reasons. 1.) My rechargeable wireless mouse stopped holding a charge. 2.) It matched the keyboard I had recently picked up, a Corsair K65. The color sync option is pretty darned cool, but not something that would justify the price premium by itself. Instead, what I enjoy about this mouse is the comfort and the performance. Unlike many mice, this one encourages you to spread your hand out a bit: your ring finger rests on a contoured spot on the mouse, and your thumb rests on the 12-key side pad. It took a bit of getting used to, but now all right-hand fatigue from daily use is gone. I don't do MMO gaming, but I have played around with the customization of the keypad for business purposes, especially word processing. I haven't developed a system that works for me yet, but I imagine my document-editing speed can increase dramatically if I do. I'll add that I did get this mouse on a pretty good sale. The normal price is easily justifiable for MMO gamers, but for casual users, if you can get this piece at a good price, do consider it.

    Solid at first, but then software issues.

    This thing worked good at first, but then the software / drivers started to act up. I've done everything to eliminate any other reasons for these issues. Factory reset my PC and later on a fresh install of windows 10, but the issues kept happening. Sometimes when I turn the PC on the mouse just won't light up or work as if it's not plugged in. I have to unplug it and plug back in to get it working. I have the buttons on the side programmed a specific way for certain games I play and each one has it's own profile saved. Randomly this will all stop working. The mouse will keep working, but the buttons I reprogrammed stop. Once this happens the only possible fix is to uninstall / reinstall the software. It works fine for a while then the issues repeat. I like corsair and have some of their other products in my main pc, but I probably will never purchase another corsair mouse again. Apparently this is a common issue with windows 10 and this mouse. It does work fine if I don't install the software which is what I've been doing for the last couple of months. I lose use of all the side buttons which makes some of my games unplayable right now.

    great product meh on software setup

    Chanzie

    just bought this today and I have tried all 12 side button mice to date and stuck with the G600 until today just due to its smaller size I have really short fingers so it worked great for me but this is even better in weight and overall feel while using it although I miss my double left sided button that the g600 had, the furthest one over used to be my control modifier for keybindings. So yea feel wise it is great setup wise its a pain, where naga and G600 had essentially all buttons set in one profile sweep of it this one you have to individually set each action button you want to use granted it did come in handy while I was trying to figure out which one of the three center buttons was going to be my new control modifier whilst in the middle of some of the harder mmo content I tackle now a days. So ya the software works but it is just lacking the streamlining that puts the other ones over the top on ease of use. comfort wise I can honestly think of no better so will be dealing with the software for a while

    Feeling I really wanted to return to a wired mouse, I researched many brands and designs, read many articles about them and concluded this was the one for me. I like the size, feel and weight. I think Corsair did a great job with the design. The best feature to me though is the twelve programmable and movable thumb keys. It makes program functions available at the touch of a thumb and with twelve to use you shouldn't run out of options. You can also program different layouts for different programs, which is great if your computer use is diversified. The feel of the keys is just right and being able to position them where you feel comfortable is just what you need. Although I don't have need of them, color zones are available. I have been working with electronics and computers for over 40 years and the is best mouse I have used.

    I’ve been a CPU gamer off and on for about 10 years. Recently I got back into CPU gaming pretty hardcore and I needed an upgrade to my RedDragon I bought some years ago. I’ve had my eye on this Mouse for some time as my local Best Buy has it on display and I loved the look and feel of it. I’ve had a R.A.T 7 (Mad catz) and a Razer Epic Naga and I loved the feel of this the best. When it comes to gaming mice I feel that it’s a personal preference of how the Mouse feels in your hand. For me, I have average hands and I love the way this Mouse feels and clicks. I play WOW and TOR so having the number buttons on the side is a must. I love that you can adjust the angle so it feels more natural to me. I found with my old Mouse my hands would hurt after some gaming sessions. No complaints here, this is my favorite Mouse easily out of the the ones I’ve previously purchased and the RGB is a fun touch. Would definitely recommend this Mouse at its price. Happy gaming all!

    A Very Niche Product

    I personally love the Scimitar pro mouse for the MMOs that I play. This mouse would proably not be good for all game genres, but rather niched twards MMOs where having many customizable buttons comes in handy. The mouse is visually stunning, it feels like a sports car for for hands. The buttons are also very easy to customize. There is a huge variety to what you can make each button do, and it is easy to swap those functions out on the fly (I often toggle buttons from single press when hitting them, to being held down, and you can easily save different profiles for different games). Overall I like this mouse a lot, and if it looks appealing to you then I would certainly recommend giving it a try! I gave this mouse a 4 star simply because I do not feel that it is a all-purpose mouse. I would recommend having an fps mouse or somthing lighter for more causal use, but for MMO’s this mouse is the mouse for me!

    I wanted to get into using a keyboard and mouse for playing MMO's on the PS4 and needed a gaming keyboard and mouse for a PC rig I'm building. I asked around and without a doubt the Corsair brand was mentioned over and over again. After doing some research I settled on this mouse for it's macro keypad feature. It makes performing certain functions in games easier than having to hover around the keyboard for the right key. Occasionally, the mouse will lose connection to the PS4--not sure if this has to do with the mouse needing to be in BIOS mode while using with the PS4, but a simple unplug/re-plug fixes the issue. I keep the mouse plugged into my keyboard so maybe that has something to do with it? Not sure, but the mouse is fantastic in every other aspect.

    After having two Razer Nagas break on me after a few years, I went with Corsair for my next purchase. I have a number of Corsair products including PC tower, keyboard, fans, and RAM. All of which have been excellent. This mouse fits right in to that club. Although it is a bit large (especially towards the back end of it), the buttons are phenomenal and feedback has been amazing. The biggest draw with this mouse is the software UI that you have to use to program the thing. It is not user friendly, but does offer a number of customizable options for die hards. Razer has Corsair beat in this department hands down. Once you have the mouse set-up though, you’ll be good to go. I’ll say it again, however, that the build quality of this mouse (and other Corsair products) are top notch. I will not be going back to Razer, and expect this mouse to last me many years. Get this thing!!

    Good with some issues

    I have larger hands and coming from a Logitec G602. The Corsair is a little smaller but still feels good. The side buttons cause a little problem. The Logitech side buttons have more space between the buttons so you can clearly identify which button you are on. The Corsair's buttons don't have much space between so it is a bit difficult to tell which button you are actually hitting. Other reviewers have commented on the lowest buttons and I can confirm they need some work. In order to press the buttons my thumb is all the way on the mouse pad. Build quality feels really good. Software has a learning curve but better than most others. I gave it a 4 because of the buttons and will keep it and see if I can get used to the thumb buttons but designing the actual button shape to be more of a pyramid might help to differentiate a bit more. If you have larger hands, this might not be the one for you.

    Fast, Reactive, Corsair Quality Mouse

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    Straight to the point: Pros: -Most RGB customization options for an MMO gaming mouse with Corsair Utility Engine (CUE). -Sturdy cables, buttons, USB plugs. -Rubber covered scroll mouse for ease on the fingers. -Ribbed side buttons to help identify numbers in the dark without looking. Cons: -Thumb mouse buttons slightly offset causing increased thumb reach when gaming (will get used to it). -Requires CUE which has been very buggy lately. -Once single LED that can only be white and I wish it was RGB. -Not more color options for thumb-side plating (yellow/black) Summary: Still one of the best MMO gaming mouse that I've ever purchased. Quick and responsive when playing all my FPS games. I really wish that Corsair would revamp their CUE program due to it still having many bugs and conflicts with programs at this time, but there are always work-arounds if you're willing to take the time and do the research.

    The software renders this mouse unusable

    Picked up this mouse after my Logitech G600 of 6 years finally started showing it's age. I bought another one of those, but also thought maybe I should try either a Naga or the Scimitar to see if they could stack up. Upon installing the software for the Scimitar, I was immediately greeted with an error message saying none of the macro buttons would work with the mouse and to reinstall the software. Once I did that, I was unable to update the firmware (another error message) for the mouse, or rebind any buttons. In fact, the software was frozen half of the time and was also, unusable. I have since already went back to my G600 and surprise, the mouse works. Amazing what technology can do these days. If I could give below a 1/5 I would for the software alone.

    Small-Hand Friendly

    One answer I did not find in the reviews I read: yes, it is small-hand friendly. The few cons: - Bit overwhelming to set up. - Software occasionally crashes. - No install CD; have to download the software online and it was not simple to find. - The button I am used to being the DPI Down botton is on this mouse instead the Change Profile button. Which leads to occasional grumbling as I realize I just lost all my binds until I get it back on the right profile. Yet, what I got it for was as a replacement for a mouse that had side buttons back too far for my small hands to reach. And, all in all, it has more than pleased me in that regard, which just means waiting for a bug-fix for the software and training myself to stop hitting the profile-change button! (Or, better yet, stop being stubborn and reprogram it to be what I expect...)

    The mouse is made of real good quality plastics with a nice amount of heft that give it that premium feel. The reason I purchased the mouse was for gaming and work. With 14 programmable keys, I’m able to use different tools in the software or game without having to reach for the keyboard. I love being able to customize the lighting on the mouse to my liking. The only complaint is that the 12 buttons on the side can be more individually pronounced and more clicks; since they are very flush to one another you can almost mistake one of the buttons for another unless you can quickly identify the textures on the buttons.

    3 side buttons stick on the mouse. Worst customer service in the industry. Bought item at Best Buy. It was faulty. So I created an online ticket. It was approved in order to get a replacement unit I have two options one ship them the faulty mouse and be without a mouse for minimum 2 weeks. After they receive and process the faulty mouse they will then send me a replacement mouse in 3-7 business days. Option two pay over retail price for a replacement mouse $100. They will ship me a mouse in 3-7 days. after I ship back the faulty mouse they will refund me the 100 dollars. No option for faster shipping. Should have bought it on Amazon. At lease they would have backed me up. My first and last corsair purchase. Razer is the way to go even with there cheaper build quality.
