Corsair Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse Review

 

Today we will be taking a look at the Raptor M45 gaming mouse from Corsair. The M45 is a mid-range gaming mouse from their Raptor range which looks to satisfy the needs of enthusiast gamers, especially FPS players.

Starting with the design of the Raptor M45, it uses a similar style to that of the higher end Vengeance mice in the Corsair range, the M65 and M95. The sweeping curves and soft touch finish create a very comfortable mouse that can be used for many...

The M45 is a good-value mouse which is equally at home in the office and the virtual battlefield

Labs Brief: Corsair Raptor M45

 

Raptor's original batch of mice were based off the company's own designs, prior to being bought out by Corsair. They were budget mice, with a very budget design.

Certainly a good mouse, but there are better options for not much more.

Corsair Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse Review

 

Great ergonomics, Macro recording, Full programmable buttons, Very good sensor (so long as you stay away from max DPI), Competitive price, Customisable weight

Side grip wears off after a few weeks, Sensor gets jitter towards max DPI, Price is competitive, but the M40 is much better value for money

The Corsair M45 is a very good product for the money, I’ve personally been using mine for a few weeks now alongside the Corsair K40 keyboard which I reviewed recently. I’ve enjoyed using them as a set and I expect I will continue to do so for a good...

Corsair Raptor M45 Review

 

Featuring the Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor, capable of up to 5000 DPI. Can this new gaming mouse project you to gaming stardom?

Aesthetically pleasing ; Reasonably priced ; Performs great on cloth pads ; Great materials & build quality ; Comfortable after long periods ; Customisable software ; On-the-fly DPI switch ; Customisable weight system

Right handed only ; Struggles to track on textured surfaces

Having spent plenty of time with the new Raptor M45 we are left in no doubt of its capabilities.

Corsair Raptor M45 gaming mouse

 

I recently took a look at Corsair's Raptor gaming keyboard and although I wasn't overly impressed due to a lack of mechanical keys, the backlighting was top notch. Today we look at the Raptor M45 gaming mouse to find out if it can tickle our gaming...

DPI buttons are really useful.

 

-The DPI buttons are nice for on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment in games. -The extra back and forward buttons on the left of the mouse are good for extra bindings. -The Corsair logo lights up and it's SEXY AS HELL.

-Seems to really be right-handed only, tried holding it with my left and it didn't feel right. -Scrollwheel is slightly loud if you're scrolling really fast.

Looks and works great

 

Im used to the feel of resting my hand on my old mouse the CM storm spawn, but I can probably get used to this one with its different size and shape.

Nice weight, feel to the construction, the scroll wheel is satisfying, looks nice too

Not really any (yet)
