Conclusion: The Corsair M90 with its 15 buttons, 5700 DPI sensor, 1000Hz polling rate, and on-the-fly DPI changes has every bit of performance a user could want in a mouse. For users who do lots of high speed gaming the high sensitivity of the Avago Technologies ADNS-9500 sensor allows for quick, accurate movements.
Pros: Low actuation force allows for quick and precise clicks, Solid aluminum body for a very solid feeling mouse, Sniper action allows for a instantaneous drop in DPI for accurate last moment adjustments, Beautiful black and aluminum exterior, 2-Year warranty, 15 customizable command buttons
Summary: The M90 is geared towards the MMORPG e RTS fans, but it can also be used by FPS players (although we think it’s a little heavy for that). It’s a good match for the Vengeance K90 keyboard or some similar gaming-grade keyboard, but the M90 itself provides such a wide array of configurations that it can work on its own. The aluminum metal frame is discreet, but it still stands out.
Summary: One funny thing I noticed was the video on their web site describes using the M90 for use with the
MMO that all other are compared against (World of Warcraft). But of the 11 profiles templates created
for the mouse, not one of them was for this MMO they were targeting in their video.
Summary: I would strongly encourage anyone looking at the Vengeance M90 to find a friend or business that will let you get some hands on time with the mouse. This way you know if it works for you before committing to a purchase.
Summary: There are so many things I like about the M90! The LED lighting is well placed and just enough to look classy without distracting you in your peripheral vision. I like the grip on the right and the sunken in area on the left that allows you to get a good grasp on this mouse as you swing it around in the heat of battle. I was able to map the buttons to all sorts of things in the game and the macro functionality was as easy to go through as it was with the keyboard.
Conclusion: M90 pointed turned out to be a very well designed mouse. Corsair has really thought everything when designing this mouse. It’s pleasant to use, and especially if you require many buttons in a mouse, you should go for M90. The biggest problems were some difficulties with the software, which were eventually solved. Other than that, M90 is a great mouse. The price of M90 is about 70 euros.
Pros: Build quality, Mass distribution, Design, Materials, Ergonomics, Software offers wide range of settings
Cons: Problems with the software, Maybe a bit too stiff buttons
Summary: Corsair has recently entered the mouse/keyboard gaming peripherals market and decided to make a good impression. The M90 mouse features multiple programmable buttons for RTS/MMO gamers, contains an aluminum chassis for increased durability and comes with the Avago Technologies ADNS-9500 LaserStream Gaming Sensor.
Summary: Corsair has two mice out in the market, one of them is the one we reviewed, the M90. It’s priced at a rather modest Rs. 4,480, making it a really good buy if you’re looking for a no-nonsense, high-performance gaming mouse for your rig. However, the large number of buttons will rarely be used by a mainstream FPS gamer. For such people, there are cheaper options by other brands as well as the Vengeance M60 from Corsair.
Conclusion: For £57, this is right at the top end of the gaming mouse market, along with the Razer Lachesis and the Logitech G700. Whilst it provides a fitting amount of mousing action for the price, it’s still a substantial investment. As a mouse can be quite a subjective purchase, it makes sense to try before you buy, so do so if you have the chance (e.g. if a friend has one, or you’re buying from a brick-and-mortar store). This mouse is one of the best I’ve ever used.
Pros: Top end specifications – more than you’d ever need, Solid construction – built like a tank, Industrially good looks – unique but not ostentatious
Cons: Sub-par button placement – at least for my hands, Occasional problems remapping buttons – a disappointment for an MMO mouse, Weight – metal construction makes it heavier than plastic-only mice, Price – this is a substantial investment, so try before you buy!
