Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite mouse
Splitting the MOBA enemies in half with a Scimitar?

In this article, we review the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE mouse. It’s an optical MOBA/MMO gaming mouse that was launched on the 23rd of January. It’s a new version of the Scimitar Pro RGB, which we reviewed 3 years ago. Just a small reminder about the name. Its meaning is:

  • A short sword with a curved blade that broadens toward the point, used originally in Eastern countries.
  • For the Trekkies, the Scimitar is a Vice Admiral (Tier 5) level Dreadnought Warbird. The Scimitar’s key feature was the ability to utilize thalaron radiation as a terrifying weapon.

The price is the same as for the Pro version, and it’s 79.99 USD. But what’s changed? This time, the optical sensor is the 18K DPI PMW3391 instead of the 16K DPI PMW3367. What more? The weight is different, as (w/o cable) it’s 120, not 147 g. Quite an improvement. Speaking of making things better, the durability of the buttons (for L/R click) is now 50 million instead of 20 million. That’s a huge upgrade. As for the things that stayed the same, it’s a palm-grip-type mouse again, aimed at MMO and MOBA gamers, who will really find the 17 programmable buttons handy. Again the (braided) cable is 1.8 m long, and the polling rate is selectable between 125 and 1000 Hz. The on-board memory allows you to save up to 3 profiles.

 

 

 

What more? Ahhh, the RGB. You’ll find 4 zones of that feature. It’s all set up in Corsair’s iCUE software, where you can also synchronize the effects with other Corsair gear. You can’t forget about the patented Key Slider control system, which allows you to reposition the side buttons to comfortably fit your hand and grip. This time, there’s only one colour variant, and the yellow that was available in the PRO model is absent here. As mentioned earlier – the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is available at a $79,99. The warranty is 2 years, so that’s pretty standard. Is this product worth its price, given the provided features and functionality? Let’s find out.
