Corsair Katar Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse Overview
Taking a first look at the Katar Pro Wireless it is definitely one of the smaller mice that we’ve seen. It has official dimensions of 116mm x 65mm x 35mm and weighs in at 96g with the included battery installed.
The mouse has an all-black design (even the Corsair logo is black) to it and is definitely has a more symmetrical or ambidextrous shape to it. The overall design really remind me of many portable or travel mice.
Starting at the top of the mouse you have your two main mouse buttons, a rubberized scroll wheel, and a button that will switch between different DPI levels. There is also a small LED indicator to let you know what DPI level you are on. The two main mouse buttons are concave, which should make resting your fingers on them very comfortable.
Taking a look at the mouse from the side we can see the overall “hump” design of the mouse. On the left side there are two buttons and what appears to be grip material. Sadly, this “grip” design is part of the plastic shell of the mouse, not a more rubberized material. The opposite side of the mouse has the same design on it.
The main palm rest section of the mouse can easily be removed by pressing down and pulling back on it. This reveals where the included battery will go as well as the compartment that houses the USB dongle for Slipstream wireless. Corsair’s Slipstream technology is capable of <1ms wireless latency, which is definitely important if you are gaming.
Flipping the mouse over to the bottom there are two large low-friction pads. At the center we have our sensor which is the PixArt PMW3325, which is technically a 12,000 DPI sensor, but it has been set to 10,000 for wireless operation. Right below the sensor there is a slider that turns the mouse on and allows you to switch between Slipstream and Bluetooth connectivity.
