Corsair Scimitar RGB Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse Review and Ratings


This Scimitar has two sharp points: Corsair's very good software, and some solid ergonomic details. But as in any MMO mouse, its side buttons are tightly packed, perhaps not to everyone's liking.

17 (yes, 17) buttons ; Corsair Utility Engine firmware ; Good ergonomic-design choices ; Angle-snapping support and five lift-distance settings ; Excellent sensor with huge dpi range

Quirky styling colors ; No lift-distance wizard ; Annoying light ; Stores only one profile ; Side buttons can be awkward to reach

In the end, selecting a good MMO mouse is a balancing act, because none of them in our experience offers it all. You have to look at each device, and decide which features are a must for you, and which you can live without. You also need to pay great...

Starting with the build quality of the Scimitar we have a mouse which feels nice and chunky. The top surface is a good quality rubber and the textured right side panel offers a good amount of grip. We found the mouse was shaped well for a palm grip and...

Corsair Scimitar RGB Gaming Mouse Review


The Scimitar is another attempt by Corsair at making an MMO/MOBA gaming mouse - how does it do?

The Scimitar might not beat the Aorus M7 in the packaging stakes but Corsair's Utility Engine Software is absolutely made for this mouse. The combination of the two is a potent mix for any MMO/MOBA player, and it's the little things such as textured...

Difficult setup, side buttons stopped working initially


When I first set this gaming mouse up (and, I'll admit, that took a while --- it's complicated) everything seemed to be working fine. I had the mouse connected directly to my PC rather than using the passthrough on my G. Skill gaming keyboard. I used...

Button keypad can be adjusted to fit your hand Nice feel to main mouse buttons, scroll wheel Adjustable light settings

Requires claw grip and you have to rest your thumb on the keypad Side buttons stopped working in the first hour Setup is difficult, you'll need to download the user manual

Excellent Mouse


The Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse hits the sweet spot of not being too light or too heavy. It also contours well to my average sized hands. The finish on the mouse is smooth but it does not become slippery after long periods of use....
