We've tested 16 Corsair mice. Corsair makes a wide range of computer accessories, with many peripherals that are catered to gamers. The majority of their mice models feel very well-built and offer lots of customization. Below are our recommendations for the best Corsair mice that you can buy.
The best Corsair gaming mouse for FPS games that we've tested is the Corsair SABRE PRO. It's lightweight, feels very well-built, and has a comfortable right-handed shape with a slightly textured plastic body for added grip. It's well-suited for all grip types, but those with small or medium-sized hands may have trouble reaching both side buttons or the scroll wheel using a claw grip, while those with small hands may not be able to hit both side buttons with a fingertip grip. It has excellent low click latency, a low lift-off distance, and a CPI with a wide range that you can adjust by increments of one. Also, unlike most Corsair mice, it has a very flexible paracord-like cable. It's one of the first mice with a maximum polling rate of 8000Hz, which should provide smoother-feeling mouse movements, but it isn't something we currently test.
Unfortunately, Corsair's iCUE companion software warns that setting the polling rate to 8000hz is only recommended for computers with high-end processors. Also, the scroll wheel doesn't have L/R tilt buttons, and you can't unlock it for free-scrolling mode, which may be disappointing if you plan on using it as a multipurpose mouse for gaming and work. That said, this is an amazing, lightweight choice for FPS gaming with excellent performance and plenty of customization options.
The best Corsair mouse for MMO gaming that we've tested is the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE. This incredibly sturdy-feeling model and a grippy pinky rest and a 12-button side panel that you can adjust to better suit your hand size. All of its buttons, including the up/down scroll inputs and the two CPI-switching buttons below the mouse wheel can be reprogrammed through the Corsair iCUE software. It has a very wide CPI range with a CPI that you can adjust very precisely in increments of one, and its very low lift-off distance means you can reposition your mouse without the sensor tracking your movements. Its click latency is also low and should feel responsive enough for most gamers, although there are some option options with even lower latency.
Unfortunately, its braided cable isn't very flexible, and it retains kinks from packaging, which may catch onto things on your desk and create drag. Also, it's fairly heavy, so fans of lighter mice may be disappointed. That said, this is an incredible mouse for MMO gaming if you're looking for something with plenty of programmable buttons and customization, and it's one of the best MMO mice we've tested.
The best Corsair wireless mouse in the budget category we've tested is the Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless. It's excellently well-built and can be used wired or wirelessly via Bluetooth or its USB receiver, and it's fully compatible with both Windows and macOS. It's suitable for any hand size when used with a claw grip and for most hand sizes when used with a fingertip grip. It has a wide CPI range that can be adjusted by increments of 200, and it has a very consistent sensor. Through the Corsair iCUE software, you can customize the RGB, remap most of its buttons, and change the CPI to your liking. It has an amazingly low click latency, and while it's a bit higher over Bluetooth, most people should still find it very responsive. If you want to save some money and don't mind a wired mouse, the Corsair M55 RGB Pro is also a great option to consider.
Unfortunately, the sensor's minimum lift-off distance is quite high, so movements may be tracked while you're repositioning your mouse. The CPI adjustment steps aren't as precise as other options, so this might be disappointing if you like having minute control over your CPI. Also, it doesn't have onboard memory, so it can't maintain any customization settings when you switch computers. That said, this is an impressive gaming mouse for its price point, and it's among the best gaming mice we've tested.
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.
