What customers say about "Key Specs"
Corsair Scimitar Elite MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The side buttons are definitely better than my razer ones.
  • The side buttons are close to each other and feel good engaging them. Every other row is textured so your thumb can't get lost.
  • The 12-button side keypad is where this mouse really shines. The second and fourth rows of buttons are textured to allow for easy identification.
  • It doesn't have a mouse wheel tilt button feature which is a big deal for me.
  • The Left click sensor is slow which causes a dragging issues.
Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB MMO Gaming Mouse
  • Lift off distance issues have been entirely resolved, as well as much better performance on a variety of surfaces.
  • I bought this mouse mainly for it's optical sensor, and it works perfectly. I also really like the hardware profiles.
  • Aside from that, this is the best of the MMO mice because of the textured side buttons and the ability to slide them into proper position to fit all hands.
  • The buttons are larger than the Naga which is so awesome. It’s harder to acddiently click two at the same time. The alternating texture of the buttons is a nice feature too.
  • This was close to being a perfect replacement for my Naga Epic while offering a great sensor for FPS games but it does fall a little short.
  • All the buttons are a bit mushy, coming from a Razer Naga.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Corsair Scimitar Elite MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The size and shape of the mouse are great for arm aimers and palm grippers.
  • Great construction materials. For the functions it bring, this is very light and small device.
  • Comfortable and ergonomic over long periods of usage.
  • It's so heavy that I think it causes the mouse to grind across the mouse pad instead of glide.
  • The first thing I noticed about the Scimitar is how wide it feels at a full three inches.
Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The size of the mouse is big enough to get a good hold of. It feels really solid.
  • I like a larger mouse and this one is definitely large enough to fit my hand.
  • I like the size and shape of the mouse, just wish there was a small resting area below the 12 keys for your thumb.
  • I've got a pretty 'medium-sized' hand - 3.5" across the palm - so if you've got giant hands, this may fit you better. Folks with smaller hands may find maneuvering this thing more difficult.
  • The design is intriguing, and useful, but because of the size, it is impossible to use this mouse effectively.

What customers say about "Connection"
Corsair Scimitar Elite MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
  • Corsair has updated the braided cable and stress relief on the Scimitar RGB Elite and the new version is slightly more flexible.
  • Great wired mouse for MMO and MOBa games.
  • Good braided cable, doesn't flex and seems sturdy.
  • This mouse has much stronger cable than it's previous model.
  • In the comparison of its clothes opponent, razer naga, this mouse have weaker cable.
Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The Scimitar is all plastic with some aluminum parts, the cord is braided & very strong.
  • The cord is braided and has a solid USB connection.
  • I mainly use this mouse for playing Oblivion with Skyrim, and I've been happy overall with it. It feels sturdy overall; the rubber is tough, the buttons don't feel cheap.
  • Horrible Mouse went trough 2 of them and the braided cord broke twice quality is super cheap stay away from this mouse , i guess that is the reason warranty only laasts for a year
  • Way too long of a cable.I attach this to the back of my Corsair Strafe keyboard port and you won't believe how ugly this looks on the desk.

What customers say about "Features"
Corsair Scimitar Elite MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The Scimitar RGB Elite isn't a plug-and-play device, so that bad side.
  • Hardcore hobbyists will find a lot to love in iCUE for the customization it offers.
  • Corsair iCue is the one-stop shop for all tweaks, RGB customization and CPI profiles with the Scimitar RGB Pro.
  • There's one non-customizable light on the mouse which makes one light never sync with everything else
  • Keypad I just praised is a dead weight unless you download iCUE and program all the commands yourself.
Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB MMO Gaming Mouse
  • The lighting is fun to play with and looks cool, allowing you to see the effects on the mouse before you commit.
  • The color customization is a nice added touch, and was easy to set up. I haven't had any issues with a lag time during gameplay, or curson glitches.
  • Lighting syncs up with K70 RGB, it's pretty easy to download and import CUE profiles. Looks very nice.
  • My only complaint is that the initial setup process for the 12 side buttons is rather click intensive, but after it's done it's quite easy to modify.
  • No lighting per button. Would be nice to distinguish rows for software purposes (i.e. editing, movement, building, fighting, etc.)
