    Muy cómodo, buena calidad

    This is possible the only mouse I will ever need. I love the feel, shape, and functionality. I also like the weight. I saw on the reviews that a lot of people didn’t like the weight but I’m not one of them. I use it for some gaming but I really bought this thing for the functionality. Having the ability to set keys to macros, keystrokes, text strings, and the ability to switch profiles with easy is a major reason I bought this. The software works flawlessly and is easy to use. It even has the option to change the mouse color if that’s your thing. 10 out of 10.

    I bought this mouse originally to play a few MMO games I got into, that used the numbers to cycle abilities, and it was much more practical to have them on the mouse since it was used as a core control for the games anyway.

    Having used it for a few months, I really cannot fault it. Everything from the build quality, number pad adjustment, build materials and easy sync with iCUE for the RGB lights was perfect. Being a wired mouse as well was also a big plus for me, since I prefer them over wireless, and the braided cable meant it wasn’t going to break anytime soon (which after a few months, I can safely say hasn’t).

    Ergonomically, the mouse fits really nice in the hand. It has a premium weighted feel, is just the right size, and every curve and notch fits flawlessly into your palm.

    The mouse is also full customisable in button mapping, DPI setting and RGB lights, with total compatibility with Corsair’s iCUE program.

    Finding a fault on this mouse is like finding a needle in a haystack, it really is that good. It became my daily driver for both work and gaming, and unless it falls into severe disrepair, will be with me for many years to come.

    At the time of this writing there is only one other review posted and it says ICUE does not work. That it false. To be fair, the mouse did not register for me in ICUE at first, either. But the cause is fairly obvious. They are using an old version of ICUE… from before this mouse even existed. Literally all you need to do is update the software. I attached screenshots proving it shows up and works, along with what software revisions they are on right now. Yeah, that’s it… just update your software. There is a button in the corner.

    For the mouse itself, it is ALMOST identical to the old wired version. There are a few minor aesthetic downgrades. For some reason they removed the RGB in the mouse wheel, plus the light in front of the side buttons is gone too. Also, it has one less button on the top, behind the mouse wheel. The fit and feel is the same.

    I would certainly be happier without those random minor downgrades, but they are super minor and the upgrade of FINALLY having a wireless version of this mouse is 100% worth it. I love this mouse and have been on the lookout for a wireless version for years. It is the best MMO mouse, and now finally wireless.

    ergonomic: I can claw grip it! mouse is not too long, not too tall, not too wide
    lighting: it has 5 zones that you can configure individually
    software is great: used to be horrible, they improved it a lot since launch.
    onboard memory: you can configure your lighting, keybinds, etc. once and never open the software again. up to 3 onboard profiles, very nice!
    scroll is comfortable, not too stiff and surface doesn’t hurt my finger… looking at you, Logitech g305 lightspeed >:(

    keypad light is a bit dim: this is not a big problem long term because I probably won’t even see the buttons when I get used to it but still a bit disappointing that the keys are dimmer than the other lighting zones.
    weight: a bit on the heavier side but I probably won’t notice after using it for a week or two.
    coating: it feels and looks amazing right now, but will definitely wear out with time and will not be pretty.
    side buttons: this might be the only real con I could find in this mouse… the corners are SHARP. my thumb gets caught between the rows and it hurts after doing it a couple times. bear in mind I just got the mouse, maybe I get used to it later, idk


    the marketing pictures make it seem like a humongous mouse that would force me to me palm grip it, but it actually isn’t that big. putting it side by side with my Logitech g305 lightspeed is just a bit bigger and heavier. I can claw grip it okay, all side keys accessible thanks to that adjustable keypad. for reference, the length of my hand from tip of middle finger to wrist is 7,5 inches. I think smaller hands might still be able to claw grip it.

    cable is not too stiff but not soft either. get a bungee or diy one.

    overall very satisfied with the purchase.

    The fact that I can customize each button press and set multiple profiles is a dream.

    I love this mouse, honestly. I switched from the wired version to wireless because I can’t give up the icue software.

    Having each side button be customizable and automatically switch profiles on opening up different programs/games is the most useful feature. I have different macros across different games, have shortcuts to websites, and I don’t have to pick up the mouse to switch profiles thanks to icue software.

    Not honestly sure about the battery life as it hasn’t gone below “high” in the couple of weeks I’ve been using it for 2-6 hours each day.

    I had been looking for a replacement since my Logitech g600 clicked its last click. This seemed like a natural second option.

    Overall, I was pleased with this mouse. I liked that you could adjust the side plate to wherever felt comfortable.

    I ended up returning the mouse for two reasons.
    1) Lack of scroll wheel tilt. I grew too dependent on it after having the g600 for so long. I wanted to give it a try without that feature but I couldn’t do it 😂
    2) Different weight of clicks on the right and left mouse buttons. For example, the left mouse button was fairly light, but the right mouse button felt mushy and heavy.
