The M55 checks off all the boxes of a standard gaming mouse, and one additional box as well. With RGB lighting, programmable buttons, on-the-fly DPI switching, lightweight construction, and a high-DPI optical sensor this mouse looks great on paper. So what was that extra feature box that we haven’t mentioned yet? Oh yeah, the M55 RGB PRO is designed for both left and right-handed gamers, featuring an ambidextrous shape for claw, palm, or fingertip gamers alike. Offering a comfortable design for everyone, does the M55 RGB PRO live up to the high standard that existing Corsair products offer? Read along to find out!

Clad in Corsair’s standard black and yellow garb, the M55 RGB PRO is kept safe in a small retail box that has a nice image of the mouse on its front.
The backside of the box gives two additional angled views of the M55, along with a short list of some of the mouse’s features. An iCUE logo indicates that this product is compatible with Corsair’s versatile configuration software.
