The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is an excellent mouse for MMO games. It has a 12-button side panel, on which you can program all buttons for different actions. It's one of the better-built mice we've tested thanks to its aluminum frame. Its performance is excellent with a very wide range of DPI, and you can easily customize it to your preference inside the iCUE software. The mouse has a short design with a high bump, making it quite universal for claw grip, but isn't recommended for extra-large hands in palm grip or small hands with fingertip grip.
Good for mixed usage. This mouse is designed as an MMO mouse since it has plenty of programmable buttons. It's a good gaming mouse, regardless of the games you play, thanks to its amazing performance and customizable options. Its design is also suitable for almost everyone, other than extra-large hands using palm grip and small hands using fingertip grip.See our Mixed Usage recommendations
Good for the office. This mouse has great ergonomics and is a very well-built mouse. It also has plenty of programmable buttons for different software. Unfortunately, it's wired-only and the cable might clutter your work space a bit. It also isn't ideal for extra-large hands with a claw grip, or small hands with a fingertip grip.
Unsuitable for travel. Having a wired-mouse for traveling isn't recommended because of the cable dangling around. This mouse is also on the bulky side.
Good for video games like FPS. While its click latency is very low, the mouse is rather heavy, which might not be optimal for some FPS players. On the other hand, its performance is excellent and you can precisely customize it to suit your sensitivity preferences. It also has great ergonomics, although extra-large hands might not be comfortable using a claw grip while small hands might have trouble having a nice control with the fingertip grip. The cable is also quite rigid and might drag on your desk.See our Video Games (FPS) recommendations
Excellent MMO mouse. This mouse is designed for MMO games. It has a 12-button side panel that is movable for you to get easy access to all of the buttons. Its performance is excellent and can be customized to your preference inside the Corsair software. However, small hands shouldn't use this mouse with a fingertip grip while extra-large hands might feel like the mouse isn't long enough when using a palm grip.
Mediocre for ultra-light gaming. Although its performance is excellent and customizable to your preferences, this mouse is quite heavy and isn't a suitable option for this use.

It has some different RGB lighting on the mouse wheel, side panel, left click brand name, and on the logo that sits under your palm. The mouse has a sleek and smooth finish. If you don't like the yellow design, the Corsair Scimitar also comes in an all-black version.
There isn't any weight optimization for the Corsair Scimitar, which is on the heavier side.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro is fairly bulky and not very travel friendly. The mouse is also wired-only, and having a wire isn't ideal to work when on the move, like on a plane. This won't matter for people looking for a mouse to play games on their desk setup.
The build quality of the Corsair Scimitar Pro is excellent. It feels very solid and doesn't have any wobbling or looseness. The feet are great and slide without any issues. The main frame is made out of aluminium while solid matte plastic covers the mouse. There's also more metal around the sensor.
The ergonomics of this mouse are great for right-handed people. Unfortunately, there isn't a left-handed variant. The mouse has a very rounded back, which makes it optimal for palm grip since you can easily reach all buttons. It's quite a large mouse, but isn't very long. The mouse feels nice in the hand and you can also move the 12-button panel to make the fit even better.
Most people will like using the palm grip with this mouse, but people with extra-large hands might feel the mouse is a bit too short for this grip, making it quite difficult to press some side buttons.
The Corsair Scimitar is great for all hand sizes when using the claw grip.
Due to the round back sharp of the mouse and multiple side buttons, people with small hands might have trouble having a nice control over the mouse, especially when trying to press side buttons. The left click button might also be a bit hard to press.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro is a wired-only mouse and can't be used wirelessly.
The cable of this mouse is quite similar to the M65 Elite and the Razer Naga Trinity. It's quite stiff and keeps kinks, which is annoying. It may also create drag when moving the mouse around.
The click latency of this mouse is very low and responsive. Most people won't notice any delay when playing games.
The performance of the Corsair Scimitar Pro is outstanding. It has a very large DPI range, which you can customize very precisely to your preference. The high polling rate also gives a smooth cursor movement. You can also set the lift off distance inside the dedicated software.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro has plenty of buttons, which are all programmable. It has a 12-button side panel that you can move around and can be programmed to pretty much anything, such as media keys, macros, or even instant application launching.
The mouse wheel of the Corsair Scimitar is pretty typical. It has increments that offers good feedback, but it can't be unlocked to do very fast scrolling like some office mice do.
The Corsair iCUE software offers plenty of customization options for the Corsair Scimitar. You can control the RGB lighting individually for the four different zones, set five different DPI settings, and a sniper button DPI as well. The mouse has on-board memory, which means you'll be able to use it on a different computer and it'll remember your settings. You also have three different lift off distances that you can set inside the software.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is a great MMO mouse that sets itself apart thanks to its movable side panel with 12 buttons. This makes it easier to feel comfortable regardless of your hand size or grip. It's also a very heavy mouse, which is probably due to its metallic frame, making it quite sturdy.
The Razer Naga Trinity and the Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB are both great mice for MMO gaming. The Naga features a unique design with three optional side panels to make it suitable for all types of games from FPS to MMOs, while the Corsair features a more traditional MMO style with 12 additional buttons on the side. Unfortunately, the Naga is a bit larger and people with small hands will have a tough time getting a comfortable grip; the Corsair should be comfortable for small hands in both palm and claw grip, though very large hands may have a difficult time with palm grip.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB and the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming are similar performing MMO mice. The Logitech is a bit larger and will likely be uncomfortable in all grips for people with smaller hands, and those who prefer the fingertip grip will have a difficult time getting a good grasp of this mouse, regardless of hand size. The Corsair also has a higher max CPI, which is adjustable by increments of 1, which is outstanding. While they both have 12 additional side buttons, the Logitech also has programmable L/R tilt on its mouse wheel, which is Corsair doesn't. While the Corsair has quite a bit lower latency, it likely won't be noticeable in MMO games.
The Corsair Nightsword RGB is a more versatile mouse, while the Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is a great MMO mouse. The Scimitar has a 12-button side panel and has an aluminum frame, which feels better built. Its shorter design is better suited than the Nightsword for small hands and its CPI error is more stable, resulting in no big sensitivity swings.
The Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is designed for MMOs thanks to its plethora of programmable side buttons. On the other hand, the Razer DeathAdder Elite is more of an FPS mouse as it's much lighter weight, has lower latency, and two side buttons. Both mice aren't recommended for small hands if using fingertip grip, and the DeathAdder Elite may not be great for small hands in the claw grip as well.
The Corsair M55 RGB Pro is very different than the Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB. The M55 will be better suited for FPS games while the Scimitar will be better for MMO games thanks to its 12-button side panel. The Scimitar is also noticeably heavier but feels better-built thanks to its aluminum body.
