Corsair Mouse Scimitar

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is an outstanding mouse for MMO or MOBA gaming. It feels very well-built and has a soft-touch plastic body, a textured grip on the right, and a 12-button side panel on the left that you can slide forwards or backward to suit your hand size. It has a low click latency, a low lift-off distance, a wide CPI range, and a CPI you can adjust by increments of one. It's well-suited for a claw grip for all hand sizes, suitable for all but small hands using a fingertip grip, and ideal for all but extra-large hands using a palm grip. It also has four independent RGB lighting zones and companion software for customization compatible with Windows and macOS.

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is very good for FPS gaming, despite being heavy and having a fairly stiff cable. It has low click latency, a low lift-off distance, a wide CPI range, and a CPI you can adjust by increments of one. It feels very well-built, has good mouse feet that glide well on mousepads, and it's ideal for a claw grip for all hand sizes. It's also well-suited for all but small hands using a fingertip grip and suitable for all but extra-large hands using a palm grip.

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is an exceptional mouse for MMO gaming. It has an adjustable 12-button side pannel, it feels very well-built, and it has customization software compatible with Windows and macOS. It also has great click latency and a low lift-off distance. It's ideal for all hand sizes using a claw grip, but it's well-suited for a palm grip for all but small hands and a fingertip grip for all but extra-large hands. Unfortunately, it has a fairly stiff cable, and its mouse wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons.

The Corsair SCIMITAR ELITE RGB is a continuation of Corsair's SCIMITAR lineup. It has the same extremely sturdy-feeling build quality and adjustable 12-button side panel that sets the original apart. It's an outstanding mouse for MMO or MOBA players, but it can be a good choice for anyone who needs a large number of programmable buttons and prefers highly customizable mouse sensitivity settings.

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is a better MMO gaming mouse than the Razer Naga X, but it's less versatile overall. The Razer has better mouse feet, a better cable, and it's much lighter. You can also set a Hypershift button to program a secondary layer of controls. Unfortunately, its software is only compatible with Windows. On the other hand, the Corsair has a more precisely adjustable CPI and a lower lift-off distance. Its software is compatible with Windows and macOS. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Corsair is more accommodating for smaller hands.

The Razer Naga Pro is a more versatile all-around gaming mouse, while the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is an outstanding MMO mouse. You can use the Razer wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver or Bluetooth, it has swappable side panels with different button layouts, and much better click latency. On the other hand, the Corsair is a wired mouse with an adjustable 12-button side panel, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. It also has software compatible with Windows and macOS, which the Razer lacks. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Razer isn't suitable for small hands.

The Razer Naga V2 HyperSpeed and the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE are MMO gaming mice. The Razer is a wireless model that uses AA batteries. It has a few more programmable buttons overall and significantly better-quality mouse feet. Its scroll wheel also has left- and right-tilt inputs and a free-scrolling mode. On the other hand, the Corsair is a wired-only model. It's more lightweight, and its 12-button side panel cluster can be adjusted forward or back to accommodate your hand size.

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is an outstanding MMO gaming mouse, but the Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED is more versatile. The Logitech connects wirelessly with a USB receiver or via Bluetooth. It also has six buttons and has a thumb rest. Comparatively, the Corsair is a wired mouse with an adjustable 12-button side panel and a pinky rest. The Corsair is well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes, while the Logitech is suitable for all grip types but likely more comfortable for larger hands.

Note: We didn't experience any issues with our scroll wheel during our testing, but some users have reported that their scroll wheel stopped working after anywhere from three months to two years. This issue was also present on the previous version of this mouse, the Corsair SCIMITAR PRO RGB. However, judging from the number of recently reported cases we've observed online, it appears Corsair may have partially fixed the issue with this version as there are fewer reports, and they seem to largely happen after long periods of use. We will continue to monitor this situation and update this and other articles as necessary.

This is a wired-only mouse. If you're interested in a wireless MMO gaming mouse, check out the Razer Naga V2 Pro. Or, if you'd prefer a version that uses AA batteries for power instead, check out the Razer Naga V2 HyperSpeed.

The Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite is the third iteration of the Scimitar, after the original (opens in new tab) and Pro (opens in new tab) versions. In the attempts of being the best gaming mouse (opens in new tab) for MOBA/MMO gamers, it features 17 programmable buttons, including a 10-button grid on the left panel. A new PixArt sensor, a higher max CPI of 18,000 and a different mechanism for adjusting macro key positioning that involves a hex key are the primary changes.

I have a Scimitar and I'm facing this very annoying issue for a while. In the middle of the gameplay, my pointer freezes for a second, the lights change and the mouse loses its configuration. As if the icue stopped working for a second. I need to press the DPI change button at the top in order to go back to my preset. I've tried to reinstall the ICUE, update the ICUE, switch the USB port, clear the onboard storage, but nothing seems to work.

The most obvious feature of the Corsair Scimitar is the set of 12 buttons beneath the thumb. Setting it aside from other MMO-styled mice is the fact that this section can be adjusted forward and back to accompany any sized hand or reach. These 12 buttons are actually mechanical and provide uncanny tactile feedback that is both consistent and precise. There are also four color zones that can be set separately or matched across the board with the full RGB spectrum. Combined with the powerful software package to configure every last detail, there isn't much this mouse shouldn't be able to do in appearance or use. Let's get to it!

Time for the box shots. The Corsair look seems to be similar between products, which gives it a set feel when looking for brand matching your gear. The Scimitar box brings a hint of yellow to the package, likely due to the mouse's subtle use of yellow on the left of the mouse. The front of the box shows off the mouse and the key feature of moving the set of 12 buttons, the "key slider," along with the 12,000 DPI rating and 16.8 million color options granted by full RGB lighting. The package contents and system requirements are listed on the side of the box.

The box does have a flap to open up to place your hand on the mouse itself if you happen to find one in store. You get that subtle fitment before commitment in case they don't have a floor model to play with (I feel many of you, myself included, purchase gear online these days).

Out of the box it is ready for use. A nice braided cable with a quick attached Velcro tie keeps it tidy yet ready to unravel to be put in its forever home or wrapped up to take on the go. Included along with the mouse is a quick start guide, warranty information, and the small hex key tool to adjust the thumb button array.

The use of Teflon feet provides full control over the movement of the mouse on the working surface. Both with sweeping movements and with minimal mouse movement. It is now easier to achieve maximum cursor precision.

Teflon mouse feet are consumable items. When used it gradually wears off, such are the properties of the material. We cannot answer how quickly the glides will be erased in your case, since it depends on a number of points: the type of surface used, the individual characteristics of using the mouse, the intensity of use.

While the Elite has improved the Scimitar design in some areas, others sadly remain unchanged. The mouse still feels chunky, with a somewhat archaic (but robust) design. The rubber-padded rest that sits underneath the ring finger has a coarse textured pattern on it, which I found irritating after a long play session.

In practice, the Elite was a bit strange to use. As one might expect, it was too clunky for first-person shooters and twitchy rhythm action games, but for MMOs or MOBAs? With a little time to adjust, I was using abilities and items left right and centre, faster than ever before. Having your whole skillset right under your thumb is powerful, removing the need to ever contort your hand to hit 8, W and Shift at the same time. It's instantly become a contender for the best gaming mouse (opens in new tab), certainly when it comes to those genres.

To put it bluntly, if you play MOBAs, you need this mouse. That goes double for competitive gamers and budding Twitch streamers; the sheer amount of control that the Scimitar RGB Elite affords you over the mechanics at play in MOBAs and MMOS is a must-have.

Corsair Scimitar Pro is a right-hand gaming mouse that supports palm and finger grip styles. It works fine for claw grippers, but I believe they are going to find it a bit inconvenient. The mouse is a bit heavier as compared to similar models. Having said that, the weight does not cause troubles with acceleration or wrist fatigue. Of course, a lighter FPS mouse would ensure a better speed, but after all, the Pro model is designed for games where the raw speed is not of such a crucial importance. 350c69d7ab
