Corsair is a global company bringing innovative, high-performance components to the PC gaming market. Specializing in very high performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, and other key system components, our products are the choice of overclockers, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere.

Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in  high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.

Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships. Corsair’s products are sold to end users in over sixty countries worldwide, primarily through leading distributors and retailers.

Just a couple of weeks ago we reviewed the Corsair Vengeance 1500 Gaming headset, Corsair’s take on a high-end headset for their new line of gamer aimed products called “Vengeance” and we loved it! Now it’s the turn to check out how well Corsair did with their mice, more specifically we are going to review the Vengeance M60 gaming mouse which is particularly design for FPS games/gamers.

Let’s take an overall look at the mouse.

The first thing you can see by looking at the M60 is that it looks clean, simplistic and yet cool. Probably the most distinct feature is it’s big red button called the “Sniper” button with it’s default use being to lower your DPI (but can be configured to do all sorts of stuff) when you need to be more precise as when sniping an enemy for far away where even the smallest movement can make a difference. Other than the “Sniper” button on the side the mouse also features two buttons on the middle of the top of the mouse, right before the scroll-wheel which are used to change your DPI according to specific values that you can change in the mouse software (which we will take a look further in the review) and will light or switch off three bars according to the preset you are currently using. There also two buttons near the top of the Sniper button which default use is “Back” and “Forward” as off going back to previous website or heading forward to one you already visited. Also, the blue lights that illuminate the M60 go well with it’s looks and are not obnoxious meaning that they will not blind you or light your whole room when you are using the mouse.

If we take a look at the bottom of the mouse we can see the aluminium skeleton that supports it meaning the M60 is made to last, great build quality by Corsair as usual! We can also see three round “screws” which hide the mouse weights (one weight for each screw). To adjust this to your liking you just need to “unscrew” the previously mentioned “scews” and remove or place the weights according to your preference. The mouse comes with all the weights in it by default.

Now that we saw how the M60 looks like and it’s layout let’s take a look at the official specifications and the mouse software in the next page.
