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...

Corsair Raptor M45 review


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


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.

Best Mouse Ever


Let me just talk about Corsair's customer service. They have the best customer service of any company I have ever had to work with. Sadly, after a year of heavy use, my mouse gave up on me, and a few weeks later, a power supply from Corsair exploded...

This is quite literally the finest mouse I have ever had the pleasure to use and own. It glides smoothly across my mouse pad, it is EXTREMELY responsive, and it is what I consider to be the perfect weight. I do lots of gaming, and work in photoshop,...

The side buttons for going back and forward in page history were a little sensitive to me, and I found myself occasionally hitting them by accident. BUT, take this con with a grain of sand because no one uses those anyway.

The software is easy to use and that's about the only redeeming factor for this mouse. I'm going to order a new mouse and attempt to sell this mouse.

The DPI adjustments are easy to change. The forward/reverse button on side are easy to each. DPI settings and software is easy to use.

The fit of this mouse is terrible. I have "piano" fingers, and this mouse puts my hands in a terrible position. The buttons and especially the middle mouse button require a ton of force to push down, and it's required when browsing online and clicking...

Best Mouse I've ever owned


Build quality, price, looks, features and software, simple

probably not made for MMO's or MOBA's but perfect for everything else.
