Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Review (Page 4 of 4)

Page 4 - Conclusion

Does the Corsair M65 RGB Ultra continue to prove that you can expect quality products at a respectable price? To start off, the M65 RGB Ultra provided solid performance. A big part of this is thanks to the PixArt-based Corsair Marksman sensor, which is a piece of hardware with impressive tracking specifications. The mouse was precise with its tracking, has low lift-off distance, and on the mark with its button clicks. The optical Omron switches were very crisp when pressed. Almost all of the buttons are easy for my fingers to reach, especially when using a claw or finger grip. The two sensitivity adjustment buttons are always nice, as it makes reaching your desired sensitivity easier. The build quality is solid, with the mix of plastic and aluminum materials being firm. The mouse slides well on any flat surface thanks to the PTFE feet on the bottom and braided cable. The RGB LED lighting looks great on the mouse, with the lighting zones being smartly placed. Using it with Corsair's iCUE software allows for a variety of unique customizations from button mappings to lighting effects. The customization was also impressive with the amount buttons you can program along with even being able to map functions to just mouse tilts. The maximum polling rate of 8000Hz is next level, even if you need a high performing CPU to get the most out of it. It is important to note the Corsair M65 RGB Ultra is probably too small for people who prefer a palm grip, so if this is how you hold your mouse, you may have to look elsewhere. It is also on the heavier side, although it is nice that the weight is tunable for those who prefer an even heavier mouse. Overall, the Corsair M65 RGB Ultra is a well-built, capable high-performance mouse. For a price of about $70 at press time directly from Corsair, the M65 RGB Ultra, indeed, proof that you can expect quality products at a respectable price.
