The Glaive RGB is a convincing contender to the Razer Death Adder Elite, however it neglects to stand up again Corsair’s own history of gaming mice.
Compatible thumb grips, Smooth movement and tracking, Glides like margarine
Almost all plastic, A bit expensive
Corsair is one of the main brands that struck a chord with regards to gaming consoles, RAM, control supplies, cooling and PC cases. With regards to gaming mice, however, the organization has attempted to make a notorious item. The gaming equipment creator’s most recent endeavor is the Glaive RGB, which comes valued at $69 (about £50, AU$90) as an immediate contender to the $69 (£69, AU$119) Razer DeathAdder Elite.
It’s pricer than other wired gaming mice, similar to the $49 or £69 (about AU$65) Logitech G Pro. Be that as it may, this mouse has a couple of special elements including a standout amongst the most touchy optical sensors available and tradable thumb grasps. Sadly, in some ways the Glaive neglects to venture out from under the shadow of Corsair’s past gaming mice like the M65 Pro RGB.
The Corsair Glaive RGB is a major mouse. Measuring 3.6 x 4.95 x 1.75 inches (W x L x H), this is a mouse nobody ought to grumble about being too little unless they have really tremendous hands. On account of its substantial size, your hand will normally fall into a palm hold.
Corsair invested a great deal of energy getting the ergonomics without flaw on the Glaive, and it appears. The molded state of the fringe feels splendidly intended for solace.
Practically the whole surface is covered in delicate touch paint, giving it a material and grippable surface for you to clutch. In spite of the fact that the mouse isn’t sufficiently wide for your ring finger and pinky to lay on, there’s a finished cushion on the correct side of the mouse to hold against.
The side catches are likewise distinctively estimated and formed sufficiently only for you to unquestionably utilize them in the warmth of the fight without looking. In like manner, the DPI (spots per inch) status lights are cunningly set on the left face of the mouse, making it simple to check your affectability setting initially.
The Glaive likewise accompanies compatible attractive thumb grasps to further expand the ergonomics. At first, the mouse accompanies a straightforward, delicate touch-covered connection that mixes with whatever is left of the mouse. From that point, you could join an amplified and finished thumb grasp or another that incorporates an augmented thumb rest.
As experts of RGB lighting, Corsair for the most part got things right, giving the whole mouse a three-zone backdrop illumination framework that is delicate and diffused. We say “generally” on the grounds that there’s a little break of light spillage simply over the side catches.
In all actuality, it’s a little issue you need to go searching for – else, it doesn’t trouble us while playing.
While we like the substantial size and agreeable state of the Glaive, there’s a certain inclination this is a section level item – not top of the line like its cost infers. Upon first lifting it up, we thought it would be valued under 40 bucks instead of as a top notch gaming mouse.
Obviously, there are different components that figure the cost, yet the materials all alone are disillusioning. It additionally appears like a confusing stepback considering the Corsair’s last first-individual shooter (FPS) mouse was the to a great extent metal M65 Pro RGB, which propelled at an underlying $59 (£69, AU$89) cost.
The Corsair Glave RGB’s greatest champion element is its Pixart 3367 sensor, one of the most recent optical sensors with greatest DPI of 16,000. At the most noteworthy affectability, you could make a 1,440-degree turn and whip through four diversion universes by simply moving the mouse an inch.
Alright, that is a distortion – yet you can essentially accomplish pixel-consummate exactness with this gaming mouse. In case you’re without a mousepad, you can sit back and relax on the grounds that the Glaive accompanies a tunable sensor, so you can align and streamline following on any surface.
It’s likewise significant that Corsair cooperated with Pixart to make the sensor, so you’ll just discover them in the organization’s peripherals.
What’s much more noteworthy than the pinpoint center are the Omron switches, which click with simply the scarcest press and reset quicker than you can flicker. When you’re hitting left snap more than 1,000 times for each MOBA (multiplayer online fight field) coordinate, weariness is a gigantic issue, so we acknowledge how Corsair has limited the resistance on the mouse catches.
The Corsair Glaive RGB is a strong FPS and MOBA mouse, especially for gamers with bigger gloves. It’s a standout amongst the most agreeable and responsive mice we’ve utilized for gaming while at the same time offering a sensor and tradable thumb grasps you won’t discover on the Razer DeathAdder or its different rivals.
All things considered, we can’t excuse the disappointingly plasticky body particularly when Corsair offers the M65 Pro RGB, a metal-clad and weighted mouse, for less. Eventually, there are more things we like about the Glaive RGB than we detest. It likewise offers better ergonomics and a refreshed, higher-affectability sensor that make it well worth taking a gander at.
