Corsair Katar Pro XT Gaming Mouse Overview
The Katar Pro XT is designed very much like the Katar Pro Wireless so it is a smaller mouse. It has official dimensions of 115.8mm(L) x 64.2mm(W) x 37.8mm(H) and weighs in at 73g. 73g is not the lightest mouse we’ve reviewed, but it is for sure on the lighter side. The mouse itself is not all that flashy it is all black, even the Corsair logo is black.
The overall design of the mouse is symmetrical or ambidextrous, which is pretty common among lightweight gaming 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. Corsair calls their buttons “QUICKSTRIKE” button which offer a spring-loaded design with zero gap between left and right buttons and their switches. The buttons themselves are concave which should make them pretty comfortable overall.
Looking at the left side of the mouse there are two buttons and what appears to be a grip. Typically this grip is rubber or some other type of material, but on the Katar Pro XT it is actually the plastic shell of the mouse with the grip design on it. While this will provide some grip it is not effective as rubber. The opposite side of the mouse has the same design on it.
Coming off the front of the mouse is the USB cable. Corsair has gone with a drag-reducing paracord cable, which is far better than their previous USB cables. We’ve seen these style of cables used on many lightweight gaming mice.
Flipping over to the bottom of the mouse we can take a look at the senor which is the PixArt PMW3391 18,000 DPI senor. There are also two large PTFE feet on the bottom of the mouse.
