PC GAMER (US) - - HARDWARE -

Cor­sair pitches the M65 as its pri­mary FPS mouse, but I’m not a mas­sive fan. It’s un­com­fort­able and too heavy. In­stead, it’s the com­pany’s new Glaive mouse that’s a far more ap­peal­ing op­tion. Sport­ing a con­ven­tional shape, the Glaive is a very com­fort­able mouse that can be made even more to your lik­ing via its party trick: The left side can be swapped out. In place of the de­fault tex­tured rub­ber you can have a smoother plas­tic piece or an ex­tended grip that adds thumb sup­port.

Over­all it’s quite large and heavy, so it’ll be suited ei­ther for palm grip, or claw and fin­ger­tip grip for those with large hands. The po­si­tion­ing of the back and for­ward but­tons means you have to reach up to hit them, rather than just tap­ping them with the side of your thumb.

Else­where, you don’t get any other ex­tras. There are six main but­tons and a scroll wheel, all of which are of high qual­ity. You also get the sig­na­ture bit of alu­minium in the con­struc­tion of the mouse.

The Glaive’s 16,000 DPI op­ti­cal sen­sor does a fine job and I even quite like its RGB ad­di­tions— which can be cus­tom­ized via Cor­sair’s iCUE soft­ware—but the shape and weight of this mouse limit its ap­peal.
