Good, but could be better.

 

The mouse looks awesome in my opinion. The weight is also nice. It's not extremely heavy, but it's not light either. The aluminum parts give it the feeling that it's not cheaply made. The center piece (that part that your palm rests on) is matte while...

The biggest disappointment when I first got the M65 was that it wasn't as comfortable as I thought it would be. I have average size hands, maybe slightly larger. My thumb, pointer, and middle finger all rest comfortably on the mouse, but there is no...

Sniper button out of reach for me

 

It's a great mouse and I highly recommend it. Reconsider buying if you have small hands, though. The sniper button may be out of reach for you.

The feel of this mouse is great. The form factor is great in my hand, and the texture is rough, which means I keep my grip after hours of gaming ; I like the buttons that allow me to adjust dps on the fly, and the UI to program the dps for each of the...

I have relatively small hands, which means the sniper button is out of reach for me. If the sniper button was a quarter of an inch further back on the mouse, I would have given this 5 out of 5 eggs

fail mouse fails

 

I buy only corsair cases and power supplies. I will still buy those but now I will only buy Logitech mouse and keyboards G510 and G500 = WIN WIN. sorry corsair but wow

first day fail buttons still click wont move pointer. So out comes the Logitech still working after 6 years. That's the Logitech G500 ; The corsair does look cool and has cool looking material

it doesn't work. well it worked for 10 hours then nothing. I also have the keyboard the k70 it has issues as well. Not worth even trying for the price wow

Beautiful mouse

 

I use 500/2000/3000/4000 DPI settings with the weights that were in the mouse from the factory. One thing I do notice, is that you HAVE to grip this mouse claw in order to use it the way it was meant to be used. If you currently do not claw the mouse,...

So many settings. Between the weights and changing the 1-3 DPI settings and the snipe button DPI setting, there shouldn't be anybody that cannot find a comfort zone with this mouse. If you can't, you're being lazy ; Haccusations due to the snipe button...

I wish the lights woulda been brighter (the ones located on the side of the mouse wheel). The Vengeance keyboards are so bright and beautiful, and the mouse in comparison looks like the little engine that couldn't. The light oughta angle out onto the...

Quality

 

A lot of reviews said the mouse was too heavy though I believe it a touch light for my tastes. It's lighter than the G500 in almost any weight configuration, and I personally like a slightly heftier mouse.

I've owned a number of mice ranging from lower end Microsoft and Logitech laptop mice to the G500. The latter being my former mouse of choice. The reason I replaced my trusty G500 is that the buttons gave out on me. All I can say about the Corsair is...

I can see the issues that some have been having with the software as its a tad obtuse but seein as I'm old school and don't really use mouse macros too often it doesn't affect me much

Decent mouse

 

Decent all around mouse. Just go to the site to make sure you get the drivers and give it a once or twice over.

Feels good while griping ; Didn't take too long to get used to the new feel coming from using older style mice ; Sniper button... when you're able to press it, is nice when trying to get a tight short / target

Sniper button was a great idea, just horrible placement! I need to adjust the way I grip the mouse if i want to use the sniper button and shoot then revert to my normal grip when running around and doing other things ; Not much of a fan of using LED,...

I highly recommend this mouse

Very good right out of the box

Great mouse

 

This mouse has insanely high dpi. Took a lot of getting used to just how sensitive and precise it actually is. The "sniper" button works flawlessly, if only that it takes a bit of an awkward squeeze to activate. Ever want to draw a 3x3 pixel box in...

Perfect function, feature Rich, high precision, great action, grippy, all around good feel

No No

 

I will not buy another corsair mouse ever again.

M65 slides smooth, frictionless. Great quality and great location of thumb buttons. PHYSICALLY a great mouse

software and firmware failed to install on my mouse/pc. Corsair was contacted and they said to reinstall windows... really? Well I did and it still didn't work. Software/firmware looks great but does not function if the firmware does not install...

Incredible!

 

I just checked and you can get replacement PTFE Glide pads directly from Corsair for $4.95. Given the construction of this mouse and availability of replacement glide pads means I'll be using this mouse for a few years. Really the only downside was...

I play a couple video games, but my main focus is getting a durable, corded mouse with precise control for graphics workstation. Gaming mice are well suited for this purpose. The Corsair products I have purchase over the years have all been well...

It's so fast and light it takes a little to time adjust, but that's not really a negative, is it? My old Rocketfish pad has been the best mouse pad I've owned but it's a couple of years old, so I may get Corsairs their mouse to gain a tad bit of control
