You Game Like a PRO. Bro
In today’s review we'll focus on the M65 RGB mouse from Corsair. We tested a lot of mouses, but this puppy is impressive by any standard. The minute you have it on your hands it feels right. Next to that the mouse is armed with a 8200 DPI laser sensor, customizable weight system, configurable RGB LEDs and a handful of programmable buttons with the help of Corsairs software suite. Yep, with the launch of the professional Corsair Gaming line, the M65 RB mouse has been revamped a little as well. Armed with great looks a comfortable feel and pretty nifty features, this product is bound to impress.
We stated it a couple of times already, but it is very crowded in the PC gaming hardware arena -- especially when it comes to keyboards and mice. Whether you have 5 bucks to spend or 150 EUR, there WILL be a product matching that budget. Simple mice, small mice, mice dedicated to games, mice with multiple scanning lasers, mice with adjustable weight systems, and on and on.
The 8200 dpi mouse has three-some RGB color customization that allows for 16.8 million color selection backlighting per one of the three LED location. The M65 advances on that though as its cast is made out of durable aluminum unibody shell covered by a rubber grip. Though a litttle unclear, the M65 sensor should not have positive acceleration and angle snapping/prediction, which true gamers dislike, as this mouse is using the Avago ADNS-A9800 (200 cpi step), known to be very good sensors. If the sensor is implimented well, this new mouse should be among the most accurate to date.

For each application there seems to be a mouse you can purchase, and the fact remains that the majority of mice out there are all simply close to each other. Corsair picked up on the mouse trend a year or two ago, and their latest addition is the RGB M65 mouse series. A mouse obviously targeted at gamers. But Corsair diversified and refined it even a little more as they targeted the mouse at FPS gamers, since it comes with a special sniper thumb positioned button. Press it and your DPI is instantly lowered to aim more accurate, release it and you are back to your normal DPI level. This gaming peripheral features a total of eight programmable buttons, in additon to adjustable weight turning zones.
