Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris Overview
Taking a look at the mouse pad itself it has the typical square shape, with the USB port and connection located at the top center. The mouse pad gives you a surface area of 350mm x 260mm, which is pretty big and should be more than sufficient for most people.
This mouse pad is a hard mouse pad, so you have a hard surface. Corsair does now offer a cloth version as well. The low friction, micro-textured surface ensures fast, pixel-precise tracking and is calibrated for both optical and laser sensor mice. There is no large logo on the mousepad, just a small one in the bottom right corner. This will actually light up with RGB lighting as well.
The mouse pad has three different layers. The top is the hard surface, in the middle you have your RGB lighting layer, and finally you have a rubber base. There are actually 15 different RGB LED zones on the mousepad, all of which are customizable via Corsair’s CUE software. So you can have those cool rainbow wave effects and more.
As I mentioned the bottom of the mouse pad is rubber. This ensures that it won’t slide around on your desk, even during the most intense gaming sessions.
As I mentioned at the top center of the mouse pad is where you will find the connected USB cable as well as a pass-through USB port. This USB port points away from the mouse pad, which actually makes it more functional than if it was pointed towards you. The connected USB cable is braided and has the normal Corsair end connector which protects the cable.
