Corsair Raptor M45-5000 DPI Optical Sensor Gaming Mouse (Raptor M45)

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #47 in Mice


Pros: Smooth, Acurate, Adjustable Balance, Memory for profile, up to 5000Dpi

Cons: Only one color, Finger prints show on top.

I found this mouse to be a huge step up from my last mouse, a Gigabyte gaming mouse. It's very smooth and fast, it feels so good in my hand and has an almost sandpaper like surface on the sides for easy lifting and a rubber top surface which feels nice although it does show fingerprints. I like the adjustability of this mouse both on the fly and with the software from Corsair which is very easy to use.

It has 3 programmable speed settings that can be accessed by the buttons on the top under the wheel and each can be set to a specific Dpi in the software. The wheel has a nice little click for better accuracy while scrolling. You can program all of the buttons also, I have one of the side buttons programmed to sniper mode and also have the lowest speed setting to 50 Dpi for sniping too.

It will store your profile so if you move to another PC with it like at a LAN party your profile goes with you. The profiles in the software are unlimited and easy to set up. The RED LED logo is very sharp and match's my theme which is a plus because the was a review sample and it was by coincidence. It has 3 weights which can be removed or moved around for whatever suits you personal needs or wants.

The form of the mouse is the same as the M60 but that has an aluminum body and a sniper button, both nice but not necessary. It has a 6.5 Ft sleeved cable as is normal with Corsair products and the build quality is very good as is also normal for Corsair.

All in all this is a great addition to Corsairs mouse line-up as is gives a bit more speed and functionality than it's predecessor, the M40. It does only have 1 color (RED) but I like it.For the $60 price point you can't go wrong for a nice easy to use comfortable mouse the performs and looks awesome.

Her are some pics of the mouse and software.
