Excerpt: Corsair is a brand that’s been known for making power supplies, memory products, flash drives and of late, it's even making gaming hardware. We reviewed its speakers, then the keyboard and now, Corsair has sent us the M90, a high-end gaming mouse from its Vengeance line of products. With prominent brands such as Razer and Logitech having been around in the gaming hardware space, Corsair has to do something special with its products to break into it.
Summary: Combining precision, comfort and a slew of programmable buttons, the $79.99 Corsair Vengeance M90 Performance MMO gaming mouse can glide through even the thickest demon horde. However, for the same price, the Razer Naga offers unlimited profiles, a flashier design and snappier buttons. The Vengeance M90 is a good asset in the ongoing battle for leaderboard supremacy, but not the best.
Pros: Comfortable grip, Easy to program, Adjustable on the fly DPI
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.
Excerpt: Since the inception of the first point and click device for computers, there has been someone sitting in a corner thinking to themselves " what can I do to make this better and more useful? " Over many years of evolution we went from mice with just one button on them, to mice with a pair of buttons and a scroll wheel.
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.
