I like to believe that at most of us were PC gamers at one point in our lives and it goes without saying that at that point our primary focus would be in getting the best possible graphics card and peripherals in order to experience our favorite games to the max. Well some of us still like to play games (at least whenever we have the time to do so) and so the quest for the best possible graphics card and peripherals still wages on. Still although it's quite simple to choose the best graphics card to cover your needs (it's basically either NVIDIA or AMD after all) things are much more complicated when it comes to choosing the right peripherals due to the vast number of products available by a very large number of manufacturers. Corsair may not have started off as a peripherals manufacturer but gamers all over the world seem to love their products and so today we'll be taking a look at their latest Scimitar PRO RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse.
Founded in 1994, Corsair supplies high-performance products purchased primarily by PC gaming enthusiasts who build their own PCs or buy pre-assembled customized systems. The company's award-winning products include DDR3 and DDR4 memory upgrades, computer cases, PC cooling products, gaming headsets, gaming keyboards, gaming mice, power supply units, USB flash drives, solid-state drives and system monitoring and control devices.
The brand new Scimitar Pro RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse is actually an updated version of the Scimitar RGB model released in late 2015 so this is one of these cases where a manufacturer takes an successful and award winning product back to the drawing board, adds a few more features and releases it back to the market. This is something we've seen numerous times in the past and since the original Scimitar RGB was a success it was only natural for Corsair to update it. So what's new with the Pro RGB compared to the regular RGB version? Well design pretty much remains unchanged since the wide body used got very positive remarks/feedback not only from reviewers but also from gamers so that's not a bad thing. It also features the same four-zone RGB illumination system and a total of 12 mechanical thumb buttons mounted on Corsair's Key Slider mechanism which pretty much allows the end user to move them forward and backwards (up to 8mm) in order to find the optimal position. Corsair however added onboard memory capable of storing up to 3 profiles and also changed the optical sensor since from the 12.000 DPI one used in the RGB model (possibly the Avago S3988) the Pro RGB uses the PMW3367 16.000 DPI optical sensor which they developed jointly with PixArt. The PMW3367 optical sensor is adjustable in single DPI increments, has a maximum refresh rate of 1000Hz and can be calibrated for ultra-accurate and high-speed tracking on any mousepad.
