Corsair M65 PRO RGB Mouse Review

m65-box

We recently got the chance to take a look at Corsair’s new M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse. Retailing for $59.99, the M65 PRO RGB has some very gamer-centric features that goes to illustrate exactly how Corsair has listened to fans out there when designing this latest gaming mouse. The Corsair M65 PRO RGB is available in both black and white exterior colors, and has an overall shape that looks something out of science fiction. Continuing with its aesthetics, the mouse also features some very eye-pleasing lighting effects that, while I don’t usually need lights on a mouse, really dug with this particular product. It also features a strong aluminum frame which helps protect the mouse from the strain of long-term usage and any accidental drops.

m65-side

One of the most interesting features on the M65 PRO RGB is its weight-tuning system. On the underside of the mouse, you will find three weight locations – on which little weights can be added or removed in order to adjust the mouse’s center of gravity. I prefer a mouse to have a little more weight than most in order to keep my movements smoother and more deliberate, and found the M65 PRO RGB to be a joy to glide around my mouse pad. Additionally, the M65 PRO RGB features a braided mouse cable which is always a welcomed addition to a gaming mouse. So many companies are not adding this feature anymore – Corsair is to be commended for recognizing its usefulness.

Of course, the review of any gaming mouse would not be complete without mention of what its got “under the hood” – i.e. it’s sensor system. Corsair has opted to outfit the M65 PRO RGB with an optical sensor capable of up to 12,000 DPI. While I am unsure as to what company manufactured this sensor (or if it is an in-house Corsair product), I can state that it does an incredibly-fine job of tracking the mouse’s movements. When coupled with the Corsair CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) software, you can even calibrate the mouse for your particular mousing surface. The software is fairly straightforward and should not give any gamers out there trouble in figuring out what options do what.

m65-twothird

The Corsair M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse features a number of buttons – all which can be configured for whatever control scheme you prefer. The standout to the mouse controls has to be what Corsair refers to as the “sniper button”. When pressed, it allows you to immediately alter the current DPI sensitivity setting of the mouse, which is great to be able to do when, as it is named, sniping in a first-person shooter game.

Also worth noting is the M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse’s scroll wheel. It’s easily one of those most gamer-friendly wheels I have used in a mouse. It is heavy and features some great texturing. They actually put a rubber exterior over a metal core, which makes this scroll wheel one for the record books. Of course, there cannot be that many entries into the “scroll wheel record books” but, if there were, this would be a stand out in the category. In fact, the only real issue with the M65 PRO RGB isn’t really an issue at all, and that is that the mouse is a right-handed only design. Again, this is not really an issue as it was designed to be right-handed only.

MM300_EXT_03

Finally, Corsair shipped us one of their MM300 Extended Edition mouse pads with this shipment, and it is worth mentioning that it is the widest mouse pad I have ever seen. It measures about 36 inches by 12 inches in dimensions and is made from foam and cloth. This mouse pad retails for about $30 dollars and is an excellent option if you need a lot of mousing real estate. It is so wide, in fact, that you can even put your keyboard on it and still have plenty of room for your mouse as well. This is kind of cool as it acts as not only a mouse pad but also a desk protector!

Overall, the Corsair M65 PRO RGB Gaming Mouse is a great gaming mouse with a lot of features built-in with the gamer in mind. Retailing for $59.99 at Corsair’s official website and various online retailers, the M65 PRO RGB is out now and well worth your hard-earned cash.

Corsair Unveils New K70 and K65 Mechanical Gaming Keyboards

FREMONT, CA –April 21st 2016 – Corsair®, a leader in high-performance gaming hardware, today announced the newest entries to its celebrated line-up of mechanical keyboards, the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE, K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE and K70 RAPIDFIRE. The first keyboards in the world to feature the all-new Cherry MX Speed switch, the Corsair RAPIDFIRE family’s linear mechanical key switches actuate at a distance of just 1.2mm. 40% Faster than a standard Cherry MX key switch, the Corsair RAPIDFIRE range gives gamers the edge when every millisecond counts and the outcome of a match rests on a single key press.

The RAPIDFIRE family of gaming keyboards build on Corsair’s legendary legacy of quality and innovation, retaining the aircraft-grade anodized brushed aluminium construction and German-made Cherry MX key switches that has helped make the Corsair K70, K70 RGB and K65 best-sellers among gamers, PC enthusiasts, or anyone who simply demanded more from their keyboard.

With the new Cherry MX Speed key switch, the K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE, K65 RAPIDFIRE and K70 RAPIDFIRE offer a new choice for those who demand the fastest key switches available. An ultrafast 1.2mm actuation point and light 45g actuation force make them ideal for split-second key presses or clutch gaming moments where every millisecond counts. With the speed you need to stay ahead and the accuracy you need to win, Cherry MX Speed is the standout choice for gamers who demand the shortest path to victory and is exclusive to Corsair.

CHERRY_MX_RAPIDFIRE

Beneath the brushed aluminium and exclusive key switches, the RAPIDFIRE range is just as smart as it is fast. The K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE and K65 RGB RAPIDFIRE feature upgraded per-key multi-color dynamic vibrant back-lighting, allowing users to customize the color, pattern or lighting effect of every single key, while the K70 RAPIDFIRE offers the same effects in single-color red LED lighting. Whichever gamers chose, they’ll benefit from a host of easily downloadable profiles online to instantly light up their keyboard, or a host of pre-sets built into Corsair’s powerful software, Corsair Utility Engine (CUE).

What’s more, the RAPIDFIRE range of keyboards can be paired with the rest of the Corsair Peripheral range to unlock the full lighting potential of CUE. Synchronize the lighting effects of both your mouse and keyboard with CUE LINK, compatible with any Corsair RGB mouse, or see your sound by turning your keyboard into a dazzling graphic equalizer with VOID Visualizer, compatible with any Corsair VOID USB Headset.

All three RAPIDFIRE keyboards are also packed with features to give owners the edge, whatever game they play. The entire RAPIDFIRE family use 100% anti-ghosting gaming-grade circuitry and full key rollover over USB to ensure every key press counts. Replacement textured and contoured key caps are included for FPS (WASD) and MOBA (QWERDF) layouts, alongside a key-puller to make removing keys for replacement or maintenance simple. A USB 2.0 pass-through port allows you to easily connect a mouse, headset or any other USB device to your PC, while a full array of dedicated media controls and volume scroller means your game doesn’t have to stop to skip a track or pause the music.

Razer Announces Razer Turret Hybrid Mouse and Keyboard

Rzr_Turret_ProductPhoto_TiltedV2

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the much-anticipated release of the Razer Turret, a mouse and integrated keyboard and mouse surface that together deliver the power of desktop-grade gaming peripherals into the laps of gamers. The combo was originally unveiled as a prototype in early 2015.

Designed with a focus on enabling a PC gaming experience from the couch, the Razer Turret consists of a gaming grade chiclet keyboard with full anti-ghosting and a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3500 DPI sensor. The integrated magnetic mouse mat ensures the mouse will not slip even during intense gaming sessions.

“The Razer Turret brings the immense world of PC gaming to a previously impossible frontier—the living room—where only consoles have traditionally roamed until now,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Finally, we have a perfect solution for gamers to enjoy the unrivaled precision of a mouse and keyboard combination from the comfort of the couch with the durability and reliability that PC gamers demand.”

The Razer Turret comes with dual wireless connectivity, enabling users to play lag-free when connected to a console via Bluetooth LE or to a PC via the bundled wireless 2.4 GHz adaptor. The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.

The Razer Turret’s ergonomic and ultra-slim form factor is made specifically to fit on a user’s lap. A foldable hinge ensures that the lapboard is unobtrusive and dock-able, leaving it a normal part of the living room environment when not in use.

Made to withstand even the most action-packed gaming marathons, the Razer Turret has built-in high-capacity lithium polymer batteries, so a player’s kill streaks will not be interrupted by untimely battery warnings. By supporting up to four months of usage on the keyboard (an estimated 40 hours of nonstop play on the mouse), Razer Turret owners won’t have to charge their gaming weapons after every use.

Concealed in the left ear cup of the Razer ManO’War is a unidirectional digital microphone boom that easily pulls-out when needed and can be adjusted to whatever position is desired. The microphone surpasses the capabilities of traditional analog microphones by way of an optimized algorithm for more natural sounding and crystal clear voice reproduction. Gamers may adjust mic and volume levels and mute via Quick Action Controls on the Razer ManO’War’s ear cups. A mute LED indicator on the boom illuminates when mic mute is active.

Razer ensured the headset was prepared for long stretches of uninterrupted, unfettered enjoyment. Whether streaming, watching a movie or in a gaming marathon, it is able to give an impressive 14 hours of continuous wireless use on a single charge.

Finally, Razer Chroma™ lighting features built into the Razer ManO’War Chroma allow gamers to explore a practically limitless number of possible lighting profiles.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Announced

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum

NEWARK, Calif. — March 24, 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced its best gaming mouse yet, the Logitech® G900 Chaos Spectrum™. The new professional-grade wireless gaming mouse features industry-leading wireless technology, an advanced optical gaming sensor, a flexible ambidextrous design, customizable lighting, mechanical pivot button design and lightweight construction, for maximum performance and comfort over long gameplay sessions. The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum delivers a lag-free wireless performance and long battery life that’s trusted by professional eSports gamers.

“We talked with eSports pros and none of them love the cable on a wired mouse,” said Ujesh Desai vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “They wish they had the freedom of wireless but the performance and reliability of a wired mouse. So that was the design goal we gave our engineers, to build a wireless gaming mouse that was faster than the competition’s wired gaming mice. G900 delivers on this promise, and we’re confident it’s the best gaming mouse we’ve ever built.”

Professional Grade Wireless Technology

With a one-millisecond report rate, and highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum outperforms both wireless and wired competitors. Thanks in part to the exclusive clock-tuning technology that significantly reduces power consumption, you can play continuously for 32 hours — an entire competition weekend — on a single charge (24 hours with default lighting). When you’re running low on power, the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) Battery Assistant will notify you. There’s no need to stop playing to recharge as the mouse seamlessly switches between wireless and wired modes when plugged in. Since a full charge from empty only takes about two hours, you’re never attached to the cord for long.

Most Accurate Optical Gaming Sensor

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum features the PMW3366, Logitech’s state-of-the-art optical gaming sensor with our exclusive clock-tuning technology. Widely accepted by enthusiasts and professionals as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market, the PMW3366 precisely interprets every hand movement onto the screen for smooth, responsive performance, even at high sensitivity. It has zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI), delivering exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.

Fully Customizable to Fit Your Hand and Style

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum gives you the freedom to configure your mouse exactly to your preferences. Going beyond ambidextrous, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum can be transformed into a truly left- or right-handed mouse, using the included magnetic button covers. The mouse is constructed for a non-prescriptive grip that accommodates a variety of palm, claw and fingertip holds. Using LGS, lighting color and brightness can be programmed to match your style, system and environment from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with “breathing” light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

Mechanical Pivot Button Design

The buttons of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum have been engineered to deliver a crisp, clean click feel with rapid click. A metal spring tensioning system and exclusive mechanical pivoting hinges are built into the main left and right keys. This system reduces the pre-travel distance between the buttons and switches, while also minimizing the force required to click, enabling faster recovery after each click. The result is a heightened response and a consistently fast, accurate and reliable click performance.

Precisely Engineered Lightweight Construction

Every component of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum has been optimized to reduce weight while maintaining stability. All elements of the construction have been analyzed and adjusted to remove fractions of grams, from the thin wall molding to the hollow “spoked” hyper-fast scroll wheel design. The result is a wireless gaming mouse that weighs in at 107g, making it comfortable to use over long periods and delivering quicker response to motion.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning April 2016 for a suggested retail price of $149.99 and €179. For more information please visit gaming.logitech.com or our blog.

With improved durability at 70 million keystrokes, up to 40 percent more keystroke operations than other standard key switches on the gaming peripheral market, you can play with confidence knowing that your keyboard can survive.

Customizable RGB Lighting

Using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), select and personalize each individual key light from a spectrum of more than 16.8 million colors, and synchronize lighting effects with other Logitech G gaming gear.
