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.
Design and build quality
The design of the Vengeance M90 is pretty attractive. It has a whole line of buttons along the left side, where your thumb would normally go. A comforting feeling is that the entire mouse has a base made of metal, so it’s extremely robust. The top of the mouse has an anti-bacterial, matte finish coating while plain plastic is used for the sides where the buttons are located.
Only for right-handed users
It’s not just the frame of the mouse that’s sturdy. The scroll wheel, for example, is really well built and is enforced by a metal ring. Even the pads at that bottom that help the mouse glide on the surface are large and scattered across the surface of the mouse.
The Corsair Vengeance M90 uses a 5700 DPI laser sensor and the mouse has a refresh rate ranging from 125Hz to 1000Hz, which is at par with any other high-end gaming mouse in the market today. There are a total of 15 buttons on the mouse, which means this is a mouse you’re better off using while playing MMORPGs. For most other FPS gamers, the additional keys might not necessarily be as useful.
Performance tweaking and setting up profiles is easy
All of these keys are customizable and configured as macros for use in the games. The drivers resemble the ones seen in other Corsair Vengeance gaming peripherals such as the K90 keyboard. The drivers are extremely light and minimal as compared to the ones of the other manufacturers.
The mouse has an indicator which is useful when you’re quickly switching between sensor sensitivity levels using two hard buttons positioned along the left click button.
Highly customizable using the drivers
The drivers let you do a number of things, including creating multiple profiles that you can quickly switch between. This is handy if you want to change the handling characteristic of your mouse when you switch games. DPI levels can be set and the values are flexible. As with other mice, there’s the option to refresh rates. One feature that isn’t available on most other mice is the adjustable lift height detection, so the cursor doesn’t move when you lift the mouse while playing high-speed games. Of course, there are some cosmetic tweaks that are allowed, such as turning on or off the lights on the mouse.
Another unique feature is the Surface Quality test, where the user is asked to move the mouse on the surface and the software gauges the performance of the surface.
