Corsair Glaive RGB Gaming Mouse Review

Recently, we got the chance to check out the new Corsair Glaive RGB gaming mouse. Corsair has been crafting quality gaming peripherals for a while now, so we are generally excited to review any of their new releases, and the Glaive RGB was no exception. Opening the shipping box, we found the Glaive RGB gaming mouse box designed in the traditional yellow and black Corsair color branding scheme. The box is eye-catching, and made me want to take a look at the mouse within, so we did!

The Corsair Glaive RGB gaming mouse comes in two color accent varieties: a black and an aluminum. However, regardless of which accent color you select, most of the mouse will be a dark black and gunmetal. The shape and feel of the mouse are both comfortable, and you can better fit it to your hand with the three included, interchangeable thumb grips. They don and doff via strong magnets, so it is easy to swap them out. Using the mouse is very comfortable and I had no problems using it for long periods as a “palm grip” mouse user.

Thankfully, the Corsair Glaive RGB is not just comfortable, but it also performs. It features quite a few enhancements to help your gaming experience – enhancements such as a 1ms response rate, new Omron buttons rated at 50 million clicks, and onboard profile storage so you take your preferences with you. Additionally, the Corsair CUE software suite works with the Glaive RGB and allows you to configure your lighting profiles, sensitivity, and a lot more. The Corsair Glaive RGB is equipped with an up to 16,000 DPI optical gaming sensor that allows the CUE software to run a nifty surface calibration utility. This utility will help detect the kind of mousing surface you’re using and adjust the Glaive RGB settings to match. It sounds a bit gimmicky but it does seem to work.

I got the chance to use the Corsair Glaive RGB with several kinds of video games. First on my list was Fallout 4 – I have been replaying it with third-party mods and the Glaive RGB made navigating the commonwealth and taking on its various creatures and outlaws piece of cake. I have to commend Corsair for their choice of buttons in the Glaive RGB, they are snappy and don’t feel cheap at all, and they can make anyone more responsive during FPS combat. The next game I tried out while using the Glaive RGB was SEGA’s Dawn of War III. The Glaive RGB made handling the RTS, which has a lot happening at any one time, a lot smoother. Having the right tool for the job is always a good idea and it showed here. Lastly, I fired up some Stellaris, a 4X space strategy title from Paradox Interactive. The Glaive RGB gave me no issues after even several hours of play – the mouse was very comfortable.

The Corsair Glaive RGB also sports a braided cord which is something that I have also loved ever since they started coming out on gaming mice back in the late 1990s. The braided cable helps avoid tangles, the last thing you want in the middle of an intense game session. Also, the Glaive RGB features, as you would guess by its name, three zone RGB backlighting. While not quite as eye-catching as some RGB color mice on the market, the Glaive RGB looks great and at just under $70 dollars, is more than enough style. Another thing I love about this mouse is its scroll wheel. The wheel is larger than most, made from aluminum, and coated in a nice rubberized texture.

The one drawback we could find was when I let another person use it with their “finger tip” mouse grip style. They did not like the mouse for that style of usage as they found it too ergonomically designed. Those finger tip mouse gamers don’t need a lot of mouse with their style of play, so the added curve of the Glaive RGB is not as conducive for them. As grip is a personal preference, I highly recommend you find one to test if you too are a finger tip mouse user.

Overall, the Corsair Glaive RGB is a very good gaming mouse with a lot of features for the reasonable price point of $69.99. The mouse is available now and can be found at online retailers as well as Corsair’s official website.

Low light leakage around each keycap means more light comes through the lettering and less spills out around the keycaps, making it easier to find your keys in the dark.

Additionally, the dedicated media controls allow you to play, pause, skip and adjust the volume of your music with a touch of a button, without having to switch out of the game.

Bloody ML160 Commander Laser Gaming Mouse – A Review

For about the last week, I have change out my normal mouse for the new Bloody ML160 Commander Laser Gaming Mouse from Bloody.  These types of reviews always take a little longer than a game review, since really for the first day or two you are just getting used to the configuration and the feel of the new mouse.  So, putting my Roccat Lua into the drawer of my desk, I connected the ML160 to my desktop and took it for a spin through a week of normal computer use, that featured some MMORPGs, FPS, and normal PC use such as web browsing and writing.


The ML160 has a nice set of features.  The obvious feature right out of the box is the replacement of the right mouse button for a 9-key number pad for mmo games.  Out of all the features, this was the one that I had to work my brain around since I have never used a mouse like this before.  The 5 key acts as your right mouse for everyday use, but when played in an mmo game, the number pad really shines.  The key response for all the mouse buttons, not just the number pad, is measured at less then .2 ms.  Truth be told, I could really feel that response speed when clicking the buttons.  Games felt much more responsive when using the ML160 versus my old Roccat.

Other features of the Bloody ML160 include 17 buttons overall that perform different actions (two on the side, left mouse, middle mouse wheel, 9 key pad buttons,  and 4 profile buttons), metal pro mouse boots for smoother gliding on the desktop, an infrared mouse wheel, adjustable resolution, and 4 weapon profiles.  After my adjustment time with the ML160, I have to say it is the most responsive mouse I have ever used.  I never felt any type of delay between the button press on the mouse and the action in game.



The ML160 has a nice aesthetic to it.  The mouse is large enough to fit in my hands and I never feel like I struggle with the over all design of the mouse. The only design issue I had is with the lack of a right mouse button for every day computer use.  Even as I type this and need to make corrections, my brain has to register where my finger is on the number pad.  What would have been idealistic would have been a slightly more raised 5 key, or some sort of nodule on the 5 key for finger placement.

The ML160’s buttons are backlit in red, which really makes the Bloody hand print logo show up nicely on the mouse.  The mouse wheel is also red when using the first weapon profile, then will switch to green, yellow or blue depending on the next profile you use.  Through the software, you can adjust these colors if you like. The cord for the mouse is a nice braided cord that is a great length when connecting the mouse to the back of your computer.  I never feel like I have less cord then I need.

Performance and Specifications

The ML160 performed fantastically during my week of using it for all of my gaming and computing needs.  Overlooking the right mouse button I mentioned earlier, the 9 key pad set up was great for running my mmo games.  I was able to use abilities without key strokes, and the abilities would fire off almost immediately.  Bringing my middle finger back to the 5 key as the home position was still problematic in high stress situations, but one I can live with.

The weapon profiles were fun to play with.  Each profile is designed to be used with a particular style of gun, so if you have a 3-burst weapon you would want to set your mouse to profile 3.  This feature will help keep your shots accurate and on target.  The ML160 also had 6 sniper modes that also helps increase your accuracy by adjusting your mouse movements and sensitivity to your weapon.  I have no idea if the ML160 made me a better gamer in my fps games, but it felt better to play these games.  I felt that I had the drop on people when we would meet due to the responsiveness of the ML160.

Sensor AVAGO A9800 Laser
Buttons 17
Connector USB 2.0 / 3.0
Cable length 1.8 meters
Size 126 x 81 x 40 mm
Weight 153 grams
System requirements Windows (all versions)


Final Thoughts

The Bloody ML160 is a great gaming mouse, not only for mmorpgs but also for fps games.  Excluding the minor issue of finding the home key on the number pad quickly when needed, the ML160 feels superior when it comes to responsiveness and accuracy for my game playing.  I found the ML160 light in my hands while I played and easy to move around the desk.  The mouse felt great and comfortable while I played, and even with just every day computer use.  If you solely play fps style games, then the ML160 may not be the perfect fit, but if you have any mmorpgs in your game rotation, then I highly recommend the Bloody ML160 as a great gaming mouse.  The Bloody ML160 is available now for $79.99.

Mad Catz R.A.T. Pro X Gaming Mouse Review

Mad Catz has long been one of the leaders in customization when it comes to gaming mice.  At one point, their R.A.T. line even held the world record for the most customizable mouse thanks to the insane amount of configuration adjustments possible.  Some adjustments were practically crucial to a gamer’s play while others were just there to make the mouse look cool, not that there is anything wrong with that.  Now with the introduction of the Mad Catz R.A.T. Pro X they have added to the customization once more but streamlined other aspects to make every adjustment and innovation directly impact gameplay.  The result is what is most likely the best FPS designed mouse ever.


  • Your Choice of 3 Hot-Swappable Sensor Units with
    Built-In Memory
  • Magnesium Alloy Chassis is Quick, Light, and Ultra-Tough
  • Completely Reinvented Optical Scroll Wheel System
  • Analog scroll wheel Pivot/Strafe and Adjustable Tension
  • Pro Slide Technology with Teflon and Ceramic Feet
  • Assign 90 Programmable Commands to ANY Game
  • Full Suite of Components for Any Gaming Situation


Hands On:
It has been a dream of mine to get hands on with a R.A.T. since the series was started, mainly because I am a rabid gamer but also I am a puzzle geek and the R.A.T. 7 was the ultimate gaming puzzle holding the Guinness Book of World Record’s record for “Most Customizable Mouse” with 1,344 configurations. To me, this was mind boggling tech and I wondered which out of those amazing configurations would be the one to suit me. My luck and finances never allowed me to get ahold of one (I might still one day) but that’s fine since I finally did get my hands on a couple of R.A.T. series mice and by far the most outstanding the the R.A.T. Pro X.

Customization for the sake of customization is cool but it is far better to be have that customization streamlined to key advantages while adding some new ones is a much better prospect. the R.A.T. Pro X still has plenty of adjustable parts but everyone is one that a gamer would argue to be majorly important. The skids on the bottom are changeable to mimimize surface drag dependent on the surface (one is made of ceramic the other is made of Teflon), the palm rest is adjustable to change the mouse’s length or comfort profile, and there are different palm rests, thumb rests and pinky rests that can be easily switched out.


The real keys in adjustment come in the scroll wheel and the main sensor. Besides having three different interchangeable scroll wheels to such your fancy or play style the wheel itself is a marvel of customization. The wheel has it’s own optical sensor enabling it to read the surface independently of the rest of the mouse giving it unique precision and sensitivity. The wheel is reading the surface independently! This enables a brand new ability that is elegant in it’s simplicity yet a huge game changer in the FPS genre: scroll wheel strafing. Imagine you are behind cover, pinned down and you hear a clip change out. Instead of stepping out or relying on other buttons to hopefully provide a lean out you simply slide your finger up onto the scroll wheel and lean it the direction you want and BAM! you pop your enemy while still in cover then smoothly lean back. The speed, ease and simplicity of this move makes it possible to perform it with amazing grace under fire. If you are a hardcore FPS this alone is worth the price of the mouse and combined with the interchangeable wheels and precision reading it’s a no brainer.


The innovations with the mouse don’t stop there. In an attempt to “future proof” the mouse the design allows for interchangeable primary reading sensors on the mouse. You can literally turn it over, pop off the magnetic skids and pull the sensor off and change it out with three module unit choices: Phillips Laser (8200), Pixart Laser (8200) and PixArt Optical (5000). The Phillips module coming with high configurisation for tech heads allowing them to make surface calibrations, rotational angle adjustment, sensor dampening, and lift-off height adjustments. Not being a particularly strong tech head I learned what most of that means from Star Trek and trust me it is impressive.

If you aren’t a huge tech head and just want a laser mouse with a dependent consistency then the PixArt Laser 8200 is the one you will want to use. You will still get angle snapping that allows you to draw a straight line in imaged editing (this feature can also be disabled) and adjustable lift-off height to match your play style but otherwise all of your variables are set and will perform the same time and again allowing you reliable game play.

Finely if you are an old school gamer or addicted to MOBA play then the optic for you is the PixArt Optical 5000 dpi. You get the rotational angle adjustment of the Philips module and the angle snapping feature of the PixArt Laser 8200 but all in an old school optical reading system. All three provide a true dpi for precision use so as to 100% accuracy without firmware tricks or interpolation.

And if you like to have your gameplay programmed through your mouse there 10 programmable buttons with nine profile modes enabling you to have 90 key programs!  that will give any other programmable mouse on the market a run for it’s money.


The result is a mouse that will work optimally in any field you want to use it in with the customization you would most desire in a long term use device. The specs on this mouse actually inspire me to become more tech oriented and had me downloading some of the latest FPS games to try out the other two modules and boy is that game a blast with this mouse! Mad Catz has already announced plans to come out with more modules in the future to add to the mouse as needs arise which is how they intend to “future proof” this bad boy.

Last Strafe:

Mad Catz R.A.T. Pro X Gaming Mouse will be the new standard that all other mice are held up to. With it’s “future proofing” and versatility combining with steamlined customization and scroll wheel innovations you may never have to purchase a new mouse again. That’s a bold statement.

Razer Unveils New Mamba Gaming Mice at E3


LOS ANGELES (E3 2015) – Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the world’s most advanced gaming mouse, the new Razer Mamba. The successor to one of the leading wired/wireless gaming mouse, the new Razer Mamba is powered by the world’s most precise gaming mouse sensor, the revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology, and industry leading gaming grade wired/wireless technology.

The new 5G laser sensor is capable of tracking up to 16,000 DPI which is optimized for multi-display set-ups with ultra-high display resolutions. The 5G laser sensor is also the world’s most precise – with its ability to track up to 1 DPI increments (as opposed to the current industry standard of 50 DPI increments). The next generation gaming mouse sensor is also able to track lift-off cut-off distance as precise as 0.1 mm, reducing on-screen jitter so your aim stays on target even as you move. The 5G laser sensor in the new Razer Mamba was designed to be an extension of your natural hand movement.

Razer’s latest gaming mouse also features the patent pending, revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology. One of the most important facets of a gaming mouse is the click force – and in the past, gamers have had to adapt to a mouse’s click force or be compelled to search through a multitude of mice and switches to find the perfect mouse button click force.

With the new Adjustable Click Force Technology, instead of having to adapt to a mouse’s set click force, this revolutionary feature allows gamers to freely adjust the level of click force needed to activate the left and right mouse buttons, from distinct clicks for high accuracy actions such as sniping in FPS games to lighter presses for rapid fire action needed for MOBA games. The Razer Mamba’s Adjustable Click Force Technology is capable of up to 504° turn, providing users with a total of 14 distinct choices to set their signature click feel for a more personalized gameplay.

“The original Razer Mamba was launched six years ago and, even today, is the gold standard for a wireless gaming grade mouse,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Our enhancements to the Razer Mamba with the most precise laser sensor and the revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology, together with the industry leading gaming grade wired/wireless technology, leave us ahead of the curve when it comes to gaming mice.”

Also launching today is the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition wired gaming mouse, specifically designed for eSports athletes. Featuring the same precise gaming mouse sensor, ergonomic form factor, and advanced Chroma customizable lighting as the wireless Razer Mamba, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition embodies the absolute best elements an eSports athlete needs to dominate in any tournament.

Both new mice join the Razer Chroma line of devices, which includes an array of mice, keyboards and a headset. Each Chroma enabled product comes with the option of 16.8 million customizable colors and a range of effects through Razer’s cloud-based hardware configurator, Razer Synapse. Razer Synapse also allows the Razer Mamba and Razer Mamba TE to sync lighting colors and effects with other Chroma enabled devices.

Additionally, the publicly available Razer Chroma SDK allows game developers worldwide to directly interact with Chroma enabled devices, displaying lighting effects directly on the peripherals for a more immersive experience to gameplay.  For more information, interested parties may visit http://developer.razerzone.com/chroma/.
