With CES starting the market will soon be awash with brand new products, revisions of popular current ones, and some things we cannot yet foresee.
The Corsair Gaming range of products have long proved extremely popular, combining high build quality with affordable pricing and lots of features that have proved to be so popular they've expanded across the whole genre. With this in mind three mice and a new mouse mat appeared in the OC3D offices around Christmas, formed of two new designs and a refresh of a legendary classic. Glancing at the image at the top of the page they are, from left to right, the Ironclaw RGB, the Harpoon RGB Wireless and the M65 RGB Elite.
We're starting with the refreshed model, the M65 RGB Elite. As one of the most popular models thanks to its comfortable form and sniper button we're sure that many of you will already be aware of what the M65 has to offer. If not we'll quickly bring you up to speed.
Mouse mats - or rather Gaming Surfaces in modern parlance - have rapidly reached a point wherein they are gigantic. Instead of focussing just on giving your mouse ball grip, or your laser a uniform surface, these days they cover the entire desk to ensure that streamers can shout their branding from the rooftops, and those of you who are somewhat slack with your drinking don't stain your desk. The MM350 is very comfortable and perfect for testing our Corsair threesome.
If you've been following the mouse world then you can't have missed out on the M65. Although a cursory glance might lead you to believe the only change is an upgrade of the sensor from the 100-12000 DPI offering in the M65 Pro to the 100-18000 DPI PMW3391 in the Elite, there have also been some minor adjustments to the chassis. The new Elite is now 1.5mm shorter, 4.5mm wider and 18 grammes lighter than the Pro that came before. Not enough to make a massive change to the feel in the hand, but the lighter weight is nice during long sessions.
