Oh, boy, what do we have here? It’s a beautiful piece of PC accessory, and might be the best-looking you’ll have in the future. Corsair is, of course, very well-known for their gaming enhancement in many aspects. This is one of those in form of a gaming mouse with a very affordable price. The specs of Corsair Glaive RGB rival Razer DeathAdder Elite. It’s got a sharp, powerful name, and it assures you-you’ll be doing all the fighting and shooting with ease. That’s because of its PMW3367 gaming grade optical sensor, which is one of the most sensitive on the market today.
Okay, let’s start by saying – it’s not exactly a small mouse. But it will be fitting and comfortable unless you really have either too small or too large hands. If that isn’t the case, and because it’s ergonomically-made, your hands will fall into fall grip naturally. The contoured shape certainly helps it feel familiar and easy to use. When it comes to colors, it’s available in black and aluminum colors, and with a soft, matte touch paint over. It makes for a great surface to use, with good grip and no excessive sweating.
The 6 buttons on the side are reminiscent of SteelSeries Rival 700, which is its main competitor. Although there are no additional screens on the side and thank God for that. We’re saying that because rarely any game or program supports it, so it’s a feature you’d have to pay needlessly. And the price of Corsair Glaive RGB is pretty affordable, only $49. It will give you great value for money, which reflects on our rating. Additionally, you can add a magnetic thumb grip if it feels better for you, and freely detach it if it doesn’t. As you’d expect from a gaming mouse, Corsair Glaive RGB features a braided fiber cable of 1.8m in length, which will protect it from breaking and bending.
This means the money you invest will be worth it, as one of the most common reasons for mouse failure is cable breakage or weird bending. If you still aren’t impressed, let its RGB light, like it’s mentioned in the title, blow your mind. It’s a three-zone backlighting system, but not in-your-face, it’s bright but still soft and won’t blind you. But by far the best Corsair Glaive RGB specs are the sensor and the switch. First of all, the sensor is one of the lastest on the market, and it supports maximum DPI of 16000.
That’s very, very sensitive, and it will allow you to achieve literally sensitivity perfection if used on maximum settings. In our review of Corsair Glaive RGB, there was no need to use more than 4000 DPI, it’s that good, but you might find some other setting fits you better. That’s why you can easily scroll through settings by a button below the scroll wheel. The switches we mentioned are Omron switches, and they’re awesome for MMORPG where a lot of left and right clicking is required. It does that by reducing the fatigue you’ll experience – it clicks with the slightest press and the resistance is at a minimum.

I mainly play World of Warcraft and CS: GO, which actually made me look into a mouse like this. It's also very cheap for what it has to offer to me, and other gamers. When I received it, I realized it's very comfortable to use, and not as big as I thought, nor heavy. You can exchange grips if you like a different feel, and have a perfect sensitivity, which is up to par with Razer, but cheaper. A great buy, in my opinion.
