Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB Gaming Mouse Overview
Taking a first look at the Scimitar PRO RGB, to be honest I expected a larger mouse. 17 programmable buttons is a lot, but the way Corsair is able is able to fit them into the mouse without making it overly-large is quite impressive. The mouse has official dimensions of 119.4mm x 77mm x 42.4mm and weighs in at 147g. We received the black version of the mouse, but there is also a yellow version that has a yellow side panel opposed to the all black on we have here.
Starting on the left side of the mouse we have the thumb buttons. These are 12 fully programmable mechanical keys. These keys have been designed to pro player specifications for ultra-consistent, tactile feedback, and precise actuation and positioned for critical access during intense raids or ultimate shots. They are more durable and provide longer life compared standard switches. Every other row in this cluster of keys is textured, which lets you know what buttons you are pressing and provides a great grip as well. This entire cluster of keys can actually be moved up to 8mm for the best and most comfortable fit. Just loosen the hex screw on the bottom of the mouse.
Taking a look at the mouse from the top we can get a better idea of the design. As you can see the mouse looks like many of Corsair’s other mice with the contoured design, crafted to fit your palm, no matter your hand size or grip style. There is a Corsair logo on the palm rest, two main mouse buttons, DPI up and down buttons, and a nice rubberized scroll wheel. The mouse has a single texture on most of it, which has a soft plastic feel to it.
On the right side of the mouse there are no buttons at all. There is however a large textured rubberized grip. This will ensure comfortable use and the best grip possible during those intense gaming sessions.
Flipping the mouse over to the bottom we can see four extra large PTFE mouse feet and the centrally located sensor. The Scimitar PRO RGB makes use of a PixArt 16000 DPI optical sensor. This sensor can be adjusted in 1 DPI increments. You can also fine tune this sensor to pretty much any mouse pad.
Coming off the front of the mouse you have the 1.8m braided cable. This cable is reinforced on both ends, so it is very unlikely that it will fail.
