Corsair Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse Review and Ratings

 

A good choice for casual-to-moderate gamers, the Raptor M45 delivers an unusual design and solid handfeel with most of the gaming customizability you'll see in pricier gaming mice.

Strong macro functionality ; Broad resolution-setting options ; Comfortable, bigger-than-average scroll wheel

Lack of macro instructions, help system means trial and error may be in order ; Right-handed design only ; Action gamers may want a few more buttons

What the Raptor M45 does, it does well. Its response time is excellent, and the seven programmable buttons are backed by good tools for setting up macros and storing game-specific profiles. The broad resolution settings (and the ability to customize...

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...

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

 

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...

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 USB Wired Gaming Mouse

My only issue with this mouse is the Really stiff wheel click, and the Very Easy right click...i have large hands, and just resting my hand causes the right click to be depressed VERY often. *edit/update* The scroll wheel is not as stiff, after some...

Great Entry-Level Gaming Mouse

 

To be honest, the Corsair logo is sweet. I don't like the new one so this was vintage for me.

The weight stubbs are great for optimized desired weight for your mouse. Extremely reliable left and right clicks, super good response. Easy to use hardware (Corsair Mouse Configurator). Extremely good for FPS.

Mouse 4 and scroll wheel tends to break fast. This is my second one in 2 years. Normally, my mice lasts longer.
