Testing & Results
This mouse was used as the primary mouse over a period of 3 weeks. In addition to producitivty software and everyday browsing, the M60 was tested in several games including: Crysis, StarCraft 2, League of Legends, and Might & Magic VI.
- Processor Intel i7-920
- Video Card: Nvidia GTX 285
- RAM: 16GB DDR3
- Monitor resolution: 1920x1080 pixels
- StarCraft II
- League of Legends
- Might & Magic VI
The Corsair Vengeance M60 has one of the most comfortable grips and surface material out there. The rough side pieces allow for a strong grip and prevents sweat. Sometimes the thumb piece will get sticky from usage but the M60 doesn't have that problem.
The Snipe button is also very practical in applications and games. For applications, photoshop is a great example of something that requires pixel perfection, and the sniper button can be activated to decrease DPI significantly for those fine adjustments. In games this is the same. You can keep an extremely high sensitivity for rapid turns and movement but when you need to settle down for aim the sniper button will allow you to do it instantly and get your aim pixel perfect.
Using Mouserate, we can accurately test the actual polling rate of any attached mouse. The results show a stable 1000Hz average when the mouse is in use, in line with the specifications.
The real only complaint I have for Corsair is the software. By the time most people buy this hopefully the final version will be out, but the current beta drivers really suffer some usability issues, and the functionality is also fairly limited. It would be nice to get some extra freebies, or give the auxiliary buttons some extra functionality other than forward and backward for web browsing.
