Corsair HARPOON RGB Gaming Mouse

Image result for HARPOON RGB Gaming Mouse

Corsair has been at the top of the market in many different areas and this includes their computer mice. However, Corsair has mostly been releasing mice with a somewhat high price tag of over 55SGD, such as the M65 PRO RGB, Scimitar PRO RGB. If you are a Corsair fan or just a person who wants to upgrade their mouse with a budget of lesser than 50SGD, you might want to consider Corsair’s Harpoon RGB Gaming Mouse.

Priced at around 55SGD, this is a great mice if you are looking for a mid-end mouse. The first thing that you would notice after you have tried it is how incredibly lightweight it is. At 85 grams, it is much lighter compared to many other mice in the current market. This lightweight design would be ideal for those first person shooter players or those who just prefer a lightweight mouse when gaming.

On the left side of the Harpoon lies two side buttons that are placed in a position where it is easy to press for those with smaller than average hands. The buttons feel very well made and sturdy compared to some other mice which as side buttons that feel very flimsy. The mice also has a textured rubber grip that stretches out on both the left and right side of the mouse for additional comfort and to allow for stronger grip.

The back of the Harpoon has a pretty good curve that allows for a especially comfortable grip that feels very natural. And of course, the Corsair logo which has RGB LED lighting sits on the back.

Now on to the front of the mouse. The left and right buttons both feel very smooth on the surface and feel very responsive. In between the buttons is the scroll wheel that feels quite rigid which may bother some people. Right behind the scroll wheel is where the DPI button as usual, where you can switch between five settings, 500, 1000, 2000, 4000, and 6000. It is also good to note that these number can be changed with a software in multiples of 250. In addition to being able to change up the numbers, you are also allowed to change the LED colour based on which DPI setting you are on. This is very handy as you can just check what DPI you are on right of the bat just by glancing at the mouse.

The bottom of the Harpoon has a Pixart PMW3320 Optical sensor and four PTFE skates which lets the mouse glide smoothly on surfaces.

Overall, the Harpoon is a very well designed mice and with a price tag of around 55SGD, this mice is well worth the price. However, if you have more money to spare for a mouse, I would suggest that you go for some other Corsair gaming mice rather than this one as they are much more unique and superior.

Corsair Gaming Scimitar RGB Mouse

If you are an avid MMO or even a MOBA gamer, you might want to consider getting this beast. This device is equipped with a key slider system, which is a movable side panel that holds 12 mechanical buttons that are fully programmable which will definitely appeal to those who are dedicated to MOBA and MMO games.

This mouse has an extraordinary 12,000 DPI optical sensor and, as the name already tells us, there are RGB lighting in 4 zones. This RGB lighting can be adjusted and modified using a powerful and comprehensive software that may be complicated but easy to grasp on. It is able to adjusted to 12.5 million different colours in all 4 zones, the Corsair sails logo, front, mouse wheel and on the side panel.

Expanding on what I said about the side thumb buttons, they are in a 4×3 grid and are mechanical and programmable. They are somewhat curved to fit your thumb perfectly, giving it a nice feel.

The Scimitar has a sleek curved ergonomic grip on the right side for the ring finger and a plastic body with a rubbery grip finish. The mouse is relatively light, due to it being made out of plastic, and fits nicely and comfortably into the palm of the hand.

With a solid build, RGB lighting system and a movable slider with 12 buttons for your thumb, this mouse is pretty good compared with the current mice that are available in the market. Even though this mouse is directed to MOBA and MMO gamers, I would highly recommend the Corsair Gaming Scimitar RGB Mouse to anyone.

Corsair K95 RGB

The Corsair K95 RGB is a mechanical gaming keyboard that promises great features that would be easy to use but really useful to gamers. It comes with a removable wrist rest and a 134-key design that pop out slightly with Cherry MX mechanical switches. The wrist rest is quite comfortable and would be a liking to some people.

The Cherry MX mechanical switches are sturdy and would not break very easily, so you wouldn’t have to worry about hitting the keyboard too hard and fear the keys dropping out.

The most noticeable feature of the keyboard is the 18 G-keys on the left side of the keyboard. These keys can used for various macro commands and can be easily programmed.

The keyboard connects to your PC with a USB-Y cable that is thick and durable which could be a little irritating then using a USB passthrough cable. There’s a sliding switch at the back of the keyboard that adjusts the polling rates.

Every key and button is backlit can be individually programmed to glow with almost any colour you like in the rainbow. This can lead to really interesting customisation which makes it a great aesthetics feature.

It comes with the Corsair Utility Engine where you can use the dashboard to tweak the various macros and colours. You can also add special effects like colour changing when the key is pressed.

There are various miscellaneous functions like built-in media controls like volume controls which would be constantly used if you like listening to music while doing other things.

In conclusion, the Corsair K95 RGB is a great gaming keyboard, however the price might not to be for those who are on the budget as it cost around S$310. The features and the amount of macro keys and customisation, with the comfortable wrist rest and sturdy keys really prove that it would be worth the price. There is also a 2-year warranty upon purchase of the keyboard. Thus, I would really recommend this keyboard if you are into gaming and require quite amount macro or just want a pretty fancy looking keyboard.
