Corsair Harpoon RGB Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction

The Corsair Gaming range quickly established itself as one of the best options around, combining the excellent build quality you'd expect from a company as large as Corsair, to affordable pricing and some careful design decisions.

The latest model in their range is the Harpoon RGB, an Optical mouse with six buttons, textured scroll wheel, high grip sides and an extremely low weight, it combines all of the things that you would hope to find from a mouse, albeit one designed solely for the right-handed amongst us. Although the Optical sensor doesn't hit some of the insane DPI heights that you might see from a rodent equipped with a LASER sensor, there is a feel to Optical mice that you don't get with a LASER model. We're not saying that's better or worse, but if you love Optical sensors then the Pixart should be high on your list.

Technical Specifications

The Harpoon comes with the excellent Pixart PMW3320 sensor. An Optical sensor that supports up to 6000 DPI, it's the perfect choice for those of you who prefer the optical option over the high DPI LASER options. Combine this with a very low weight of only 85g and the Harpoon is fully kitted out for accurate gaming. The Harpoon has all the other features you'd hope to find, including profile storage on the 128KB of onboard memory, on the fly DPI switching, and more complicated settings covered by the CUE software.

Nice looking pointer I always found them to be a touch on the small side for my massive meat plate sized grippers, still moving along with the nautical naming scheme I see. Can't wait for the Poopdeck Quote

I like the looks of that. Probably gonna have to check it out. I haven't bought a new gaming mouse in 6 months which is a record for me. I like that it's wired too. Maybe I'm too old but I preferred my keyboards and mice to be wired. Laptop and tablet operation I get wireless being better but for desktop use, gimme a cord baby!Quote
