Phil: “Wow. This mouse is the best mouse I have ever owned. It’s extremely sturdy, very ergonomic, extremely responsive, quite adjustable, and downright beautiful.The grip and feel of the mouse is perfect for my large hands. The rubber resting nook on the side of the mouse for the ring finger is very grippy and comfortable to use for hours upon hours. I would highly recommend this mouse to anybody who needs both a lot of buttons on their mouse and high-end quality. I purchased this on impulse right at release and was wary since it was so new and there weren’t many reviews… but I don’t regret my decision. This is the king of high-button-count mice.”

Jameson: “The mouse is precise to the point of absurdity. The DPI can get so high that your cursor will rocket across the screen if you blow on it, but turn the speed down a bit and it will be the smoothest cursor you’ve used, gliding over each pixel. The buttons are tactile but not loud, good for midnight gaming, and the feel of the entire mouse is superior to the Naga.”

This mouse garnered a lot of good reviews and most of them recommend this mouse to every MMO gamer out there. If you want to buy one, the Corsair Scimitar RGB Gaming mouse costs $79.99.
