Usage & Final Thoughts
To be honest I was a little skeptical about this mouse when I got it. I’ve reviewed MMO and and other mice that have a plethora of buttons and they were just uncomfortable and difficult to use. Keep in mind the Scimitar PRO RGB has 17 programmable buttons, which is quite a lot. When I first started using it I was literally blown away at how comfortable it was. It didn’t feel like I had this big clunky mouse in my hand. Even better was that the thumb buttons are actually easy to use, and did not feel unnatural to press. I am primary an FPS gamer, and my mouse of choice has been the Corsair M65 Pro RGB. That mouse has hardly any buttons and to go from that to the Scimitar PRO RGB without skipping a beat is pretty impressive.
The PixArt 16000 DPI sensor tracks quite well and I did not encounter any issues in my testing. The DPI level can be configured in DPI increments of 1 as well so you can really fine tune things. This of course is the RGB version of the mouse so you have RGB lighting all over. There are actually 4 zone, all of which can be controlled independently.
To manage all those 17 programmable buttons you have Corsair’s CUE software which works quite well. It allows you to fully reprogram the mouse, save and load profiles, record and save macros, change the lighting settings, and so much more. It is one of the best pieces of software that I’ve seen for gaming accessories and of course it works with other Corsair gaming products as well. Since this is the PRO version of the mouse you are able to save up to 3 profiles on the mouse itself. So if you are going to a friends house or LAN event you’ll have all of your macro’s an actions saved to the mouse.
Like I said I’ve used and tested multiple mice designed for MMO and MOBA gamers and the Scimitar PRO RGB quite possibly is the best mouse for those types of games I’ve encountered yet. I rarely says this, but Corsair’s execution here is near perfect! Right now this mouse is selling at our favorite online retailer for $79.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB Gaming Mouse a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award!
