Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris Gaming Mouse Pad Review

Final Thoughts

Some people hate the RGB craze that is going on and others love it. If you love the RGB craze the MM800 RGB Polaris is something that you are going to be a fan of. The RGB lighting around the mouse pad is pretty bright, completely customizable, and just looks awesome. What’s even better is that with Corsair’s CUE software you can link all of your Corsair devices to do the same effect, which makes your setup look even more legit. Our current setup is the MM800 RGB Polaris, Scimitar Pro RGB, and the K95 RGB Platinum.

Besides the RGB lighting this is a pretty solid mouse pad as well. We received the hard version of the mouse pad, but Corsair also offers it in a cloth version. The hard version has a low friction micro-textured surface which worked really well in our testing. So well in fact that I will not be going back to my old cloth mouse pad. The mouse pad should also be large enough for most game types.

One added bonus of this mouse pad is the pass-through USB port. One it means essentially you are not losing a USB port on your system. Two it is in the perfect location for your mouse and since it is actually pointed away from the mouse pad it will not be in the way. I actually use it to plug in my USB microphone when we do the podcast. This way I don’t have to have a large microphone on my desk at all times.

I think that if you are looking to add to your desk setup the MM800 RGB Polaris is a great choice. It adds one more element of lighting to your setup and on top of that the mouse pad is really good. Right now you can pick up the MM800 RGB Polaris at our favorite online retailer for $49.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
