Corsair Glaive RGB Overview
Taking a first look at the Corsair Glaive RGB you can tell by its size that it is designed for FPS and MOBA gamers. Corsair tells us they put a lot of emphasis on the Glaive’s contoured design. The design allows the Glaive to hit just the right spots on your hand for ultimate comfort. Corsair will be offering the Glaive in two different colors. We received the black finish version, but there will also be an aluminum version.
Starting at the top of the mouse you have your two main buttons. These are powered by OMRON switches which have a 50 million click rating. Between those two buttons you have an aluminum scroll wheel, which is wrapped in a rubber grip for the best comfort and accuracy.
Moving to the left side of the mouse you’ll find two smaller back and forward buttons. Below that is your interchangeable thumb grip. The grip that comes pre-attached has the same coating as the rest of the mouse. The next grip pretty much keeps the same shape, but has a rubberized grip. The third grip extends out from the mouse much more, and has a rubberized grip. Having interchangeable grips gives you the adaptability you need to compete in a wide variety of game types from FPS to RTS and MOBA.
The opposite side of the mouse does not have any buttons, but does have a nice rubberized grip. You can also see from the side views of the mouse just how contoured it is.
Flipping over to the bottom of the mouse we can see it has two smaller PTFE mouse feet towards the front and then two larger ones towards the back. These enable the mouse to glide effortlessly across your gaming surface. At the center you will find the optical sensor, which is the PixArt PMW3367. This sensor was developed in conjunction with Corsair and PixArt. it offers a DPI all the way up to 16000 and is customizable at 1 DPI resolution steps.
The last thing we want to look at is the attached USB cable. This cable is a 1.8m braided fiber cable and the ends are reinforced so you won’t experience any wire failures.
