The 4 Best Corsair Mice of 2024 Mouse Reviews

Updated May 10, 2024 at 02:49 pm
Best Corsair Mouse

Corsair makes a wide range of computer products, focusing on gaming peripherals. Most of their mice feel very well-built and offer many customization options. We've tested over 20 Corsair mice, and below are our recommendations for the best Corsair mice you can buy.


Best Corsair Mice

  1. Best Corsair Mouse For FPS Gaming

    The best Corsair mouse for staunch FPS gaming enthusiasts is the Corsair M75 AIR. This lightweight option has a symmetrical shape with a rounded back that feels comfortable during long gaming sessions, even if you have medium or large hands. However, it's a little unwieldy if you have really small hands, as you may not be able to reach both side buttons properly, depending on your preferred grip type. That being said, it has remarkably low click latency, and like other Corsair offerings, you can adjust a range of settings to your liking using Corsair's iCUE software.

    Notably, this mouse also natively supports a maximum polling rate of up to 2000Hz, which produces slightly smoother, more consistent feeling movements compared to many gaming mice, which have a standard 1000Hz polling rate. As an added bonus, it also supports Bluetooth connectivity, which provides some added wireless versatility for everyday desktop use and can conserve battery power for your gaming sessions.

  2. Best MMO Gaming Corsair Mouse

    The best Corsair gaming mouse for MMOs is the SCIMITAR ELITE WIRELESS. It's a wireless addition to Corsair's SCIMITAR lineup of MMO gaming mice. It has 15 programmable buttons, including a full 12-button side panel that you can adjust forward or backward to better suit your hand size and grip type. Using the customization software, you can adjust sensor settings, reprogram all buttons, and create custom macros and control profiles tailored to specific games.

    This mouse has a very accurate, responsive sensor and excellent click latency, delivering a snappy gaming experience. It even has a higher-than-average maximum polling rate of 2000Hz. While it has excellent click latency and sensor performance overall, its implementation of the 2000Hz polling rate isn't as consistent as other mice we've tested at 2000Hz.

    Check out the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE if you want a cheaper, wired alternative. It shares virtually the same shape and design as the SCIMITAR ELITE WIRELESS, including the unique adjustable 12-button side panel. It doesn't perform quite as well as our pick and only has a maximum polling rate of 1000Hz, but if you don't mind the wired connection, it's worth looking at.

  3. Best Multi-Genre Corsair Mouse

    If you're the kind of gamer who plays an assortment of different games in various genres, we recommend the Corsair IRONCLAW RGB Wireless. It has a right-handed shape with a sloping thumb rest, making it a comfortable option, even for long multi-hour gaming sessions. Its build quality is excellent, and it feels very sturdy in hand. There are 10 buttons, five of which are side buttons. You can customize all the buttons on this mouse and adjust other settings using Corsair's companion software. The click latency and sensor performance are also outstanding and sufficient for almost any type of game.

    The biggest downside? It's a noticeably heavier model than other mice on this list, so we don't recommend it if you only play fast-paced competitive titles where quick, accurate movements are essential. It's also quite large, which means it provides great support for larger hands, but if you have small hands, it will likely feel too wide, and you'll have difficulty reaching the side buttons closest to the front. Note that this mouse connects wirelessly with an included USB receiver or via Bluetooth.

    If you're interested in a lighter multi-genre alternative, the Corsair NIGHTSABRE WIRELESS has an interesting symmetrical shape that narrows towards the middle, making it much better suited for medium-sized hands. It offers the same number of total programmable inputs, slightly better gaming performance, and more extensive RGB lighting. However, it's much more expensive.

  4. Best Portable Corsair Mouse

    We recommend the Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless as the best portable option. This mouse has a very compact shape, making it easy to toss into a laptop bag or pocket. The low click latency and consistent sensor deliver high-end performance for any gaming on the go, whether casual or competitive. This mouse also feels very sturdy, and you can connect it with its USB receiver or via Bluetooth, giving it added versatility for light office work or everyday browsing.

    Unfortunately, it lacks onboard memory, so you can't use your custom settings on multiple devices without installing the software. Additionally, while its feet are decent, they're less high-quality than similar offerings from other brands, and they have some sharp edges, which can make for some minor drag, especially on softer surfaces. With that said, it has an unusually high level of customization and gaming performance for its price point, and it's an impressive option whether you need something for on-the-go gaming or everyday use.

Compared To Other Brands

  • Software has good compatibility and offers plenty of customization options.
    Corsair's iCUE software is fully compatible with Windows and macOS and offers a wide range of customizable options for RGB lighting, surface calibration, CPI settings, onboard memory for custom profiles, and more.
  • Excellent durability.
    The majority of Corsair's mice feel extremely well-made and durable.
  • Many programmable buttons.
    Many Corsair mice have a good number of additional buttons, and you can typically remap all of them using the customization software.
  • Heavyweight customization software.
    While Corsair's iCUE software has good compatibility and many customizable options, it receives criticism from some gamers for consuming unnecessary system resources. Furthermore, some settings require you to keep the software open to function, as you can't save them to onboard memory. An example of one of these features is RGB lighting, which reverts to a default rainbow effect if you close the software.
  • Stiff cables.
    Corsair's wired mice generally have slightly stiffer, more rigid cables than some competitors, and they can create drag when running across your desk.

Corsair vs Razer

Razer makes a wide range of gaming peripherals, with specialized lineups designed for specific gaming genres. Razer's technology has recently jumped slightly ahead of the rest of the industry in select areas, notably in motion-sync implementation and lightweight construction. Razer and Corsair have experimented with other technologies, including polling rates above 1000Hz and optical switches. However, Razer has invested more heavily into these technologies and distributed them more widely across their product lineup while they only feature on a select few Corsair mice. For comparison's sake, you can see our recommendations for the best Razer mice here.

Corsair vs Logitech

Corsair's mice are geared exclusively towards gamers, while Logitech produces both gaming models and a wide range of mice for work and everyday use. Corsair has been quicker to experiment with emerging technologies, including polling rates higher than 1000Hz and optical switches, although Logitech has also invested more in producing select ultralightweight models than Corsair. Recent gaming mice from both companies at a budget and mid-range price range are close competitors. However, Logitech has a small number of premium mice with somewhat better performance than Corsair's comparable upper lineup. You can check out our recommendations for the best Logitech mice here.

Corsair vs SteelSeries

SteelSeries first rose to prominence alongside the rise in popularity of esports and competitive gaming, and like Corsair, it produces a wide range of gaming peripherals for various gaming genres. Recent SteelSeries releases have emphasized lightweight construction, particularly in designing more MMO or multi-genre-focused models, which have traditionally been heavier. Conversely, Corsair hasn't focused as heavily on lightweight construction but has experimented with polling rates over 1000Hz and implementing optical switches. You can see our recommendations for the best SteelSeries mice here.
