Corsair Scimitar RGB Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Conclusion:

In the end I'm actually quite impressed with the Corsair Scimitar. I'm not a MMO/MOBA gamer as I've already honestly admitted, but I still like the extra buttons (even if I don't need all of them). The mouse is built with good quality and feels like it is going to last a long time. The buttons are sound, and with the extra effort of mechanical switches are going to be reliably clicking for time to come. The full RGB color spectrum is a hot commodity on the market these days. It's almost a requirement for gamers when buying or searching for new keyboards and mice.

The Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) actually allows for synchronized coloring across multiple devices if you own multiple (say both a keyboard and mouse). I don't show that here in this review, as I do not currently own a keyboard to do so, but there are lots of great videos on the Internet (imagine that). Unfortunately there are some small glitches in the software – perhaps from adding colored zones that keep the software from working exactly as documentation says, and in some of the custom action areas at all. But I'm sure I fix is just around the corner. Watch here for updates!

The price point on this mouse is not too shabby. This is the first time I drop the MSRP of $79.99 and I can't say that that the price is too far off from "right." The ROCCAT equivalent is up near $100, the older Razer Naga is $70, and the Corsair M95 is $80. There are not a ton of options up in the button count range and, quite frankly, the ergonomic ability to change the location of the button set is quite the advantage. The mechanical switches add bonus as well with reliable and predictable feedback every time. It's not something that's going to wear out or give reason to blame your failures on. Looking at the market, it is most appealing in looks, quality, and perhaps even price!

 

Pros:

  • Full RGB over four color zones
  • Fully customizable button actions via CUE software
  • Color scheme synchronization between products (when applicable)
  • Adjustable fit for macro button pad placement
  • Smooth gliding and well-built

 

Cons:

  • Software has a few snags – easily fixed with future update?
