The Ergohacks Verdict

The Corsair M65 Gaming Mouse is a dream to use. I’ve had mine for just over four years and it still works just as well as the day I unboxed it. It’s picked up a few scratches, but I’ve had no inclination to change it because it just works.

It may be marketed as a gaming mouse for enthusiasts, but although it’s fine for gaming, it’s really just that step up from a standard mouse for desktop work.  It’s 8200 dpi laser sensor and adjustable weight system cuts down on wrist strain and with its ergonomic shape, smooth surface and glide pads, moving it around a mouse mat is effortless.

It’s a brilliant mouse made by a well-known, highly reputable company and I doubt I’ll want to part with it soon. Four years ago it was £60, it’s now a really good bargain at £37. Highly recommended.
