    The best Corsair mouse for FPS gaming that we've tested so far is the Corsair M65 RGB Elite. This wired mouse feels extremely well-built and has a comfortable right-handed design with a thumb rest and slight pinky rest. It can be used easily in palm or claw grip by everyone except those with very large hands, and only people with very small hands will likely have difficulty with a fingertip grip.

    This mouse has outstanding performance, and its wide CPI range can be adjusted by steps of 1, so you can fine-tune its performance to precisely match your personal preference. It has eight buttons, all of which are programmable, including its L/R click, DPI up/down buttons, and sniper button located under the two side buttons. Unfortunately, the cable is quite stiff and rigid and maintains a lot of kinks, which could be bothersome. If you prefer a wireless mouse, the Corsair IRONCLAW RGB Wireless is a decent FPS mouse with a ton of programmable buttons, though it's quite bulky and heavy.

    Its mouse wheel doesn't have a horizontal scroll or L/R tilt buttons, which is a bit disappointing. On the upside, its 13ms click latency is very low, and even hardcore competitive gamers shouldn't notice any lag. Overall, it's a great FPS gaming mouse that provides great value at its low price point and is one of the best Corsair gaming mice.

    If you need a mouse that has plenty of buttons to bind all your abilities in MMO games, the best Corsair gaming mouse for MMOs we've tested so far is the Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB. It's a wired mouse made for right-handers, and it features a 12-button side panel that you can adjust to your comfort. These buttons are programmable through Corsair's iCUE software, where you can also customize the various RGB lighting zones on the mouse. Its aluminum frame feels robust, but its bulky size makes it less portable and it's also on the heavier side, which might not be to everyone's taste.

    Despite its size, this mouse is suitable for the majority of people. However, those with extra-large hands using a palm grip may find it too short, making it difficult to press some of the side buttons, and those with small hands and fingertip grip may find some buttons to be out of reach. As for performance, this mouse uses an optical sensor with a wide CPI range, and its high polling rate makes your mouse cursor movement feel responsive and smooth. Its wired click latency is great, so you shouldn't feel any delay when your teammates are relying on you to save the day.

    Unfortunately, this mouse doesn't come with any weight optimization, but it does have onboard memory, making it easy to move to another computer without losing any of your keybinds or profiles. There are a total of 17 buttons, all of which are programmable, and there are also buttons for quick profile and CPI switching. Overall, this is one of the best MMO mice we've reviewed so far and it's definitely worth checking out.

    If you want a great gaming mouse that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, the Corsair M55 RGB Pro is the best budget Corsair mouse we've tested so far. This wired mouse feels quite well-built and its ambidextrous design should be comfortable in any grip type for anyone except those with small hands. It has rubber grips and two programmable buttons on either side of the mouse, making it great for both left-handed or right-handed users, and features RGB lighting in the logo on the back of the mouse.

    Its performance is excellent, and while its CPI range isn't as wide or precisely adjustable as other Corsair mice, its top CPI of 12400 is still likely higher than most people could comfortably use, and it can be adjusted by steps of 100, which is still great. There are two additional buttons on either side, and all buttons can be reprogrammed within Corsair's iCUE software, including the mouse wheel button, DPI button, and L/R click.

    Unfortunately, the mouse tends to overshoot with slow movement and undershoot with fast movement, which isn't ideal as this means the sensitivity changes at different speeds. Also, like all Corsair mice, the cable is very stiff and may create drag on your desk. On the upside, its 12 ms click latency is very low, especially for a budget mouse, and the mouse is quite lightweight. It's worth noting that while the black version can be found fairly cheap, the white version tends to be more expensive.

Compared to other brands


  • Great customization and compatibility. Corsair's great iCUE software is fully compatible with both Windows and macOS, and most Corsair mice have an adjustable CPI of steps of 1, which is great.
  • Excellent durability. The majority of Corsair's mice feel extremely well-made and durable.
  • Many programmable buttons. Most Corsair mice feature a fair amount of additional buttons, and all buttons are programmable.
  • Stiff cable. Every Corsair mouse we've tested so far has a stiff and rigid cable that can create drag when running across the desk.

Corsair makes a fairly wide range of gaming mice that should suit anyone's personal preference. They're known for making very durable-feeling mice that are extremely customizable on both Windows and macOS.

Conclusion

Corsair makes a wide range of gaming mice designed for different uses, from FPS to MMO. Almost every Corsair mouse we've tested so far feels extremely well-made, and even their budget mice have a great build quality. Most of their mice have an understated design and are less flashy than some options from other companies.
