Closer Look: Corsair Vengeance M90

The Corsair Vengeance M90 with its silky black exterior, metallic frame and blue accents is gorgeous from every angle. Even better, the M90 was not designed to just be beautiful but also is extremely comfortable and conforms quite well to a user's hand.

From the top you can see the first six of 15 buttons that the M90 offers. Although each button can be customized as the user would like, by default the center button is unbound, the scroll wheel is the traditional middle mouse button and to the buttons to the right allow users to cycle through one of the three DPI settings that they have set. The primary mouse buttons are sufficiently flexible to allow quick and accurate actions without users worrying about accidently firing when they do not mean to.

On the left, it is apparent what sets the up M90 apart from many of the other mice on the market. The nine buttons are each customizable to the user's needs and by default the only buttons bound are 10 and 11 in the rear which allow users to switch between profiles, and button 14 which enables sniper mode. In the center of the nine buttons is an island that users can rest their thumb on ensuring that they do not accidently activate a button while moving.

On the right, Corsair designed the M90 with a stepped design that is quite comfortable to hold on to for long periods. The design when combined with the textured rubber surface make it quite easy to quickly and accurately move around with the M90.

From the rear you can see the distinctive shape of the M90. To the left are the six LED's which light up depending on the profile selected giving the enthusiast a visual cue as to which profile they are using.

From the bottom, it is clear that unlike many of its competitors the Corsair M90 is built off a solid aluminum core. This is an interesting design aspect and gives the M90 a nice weight. Corsair user four large PTFE pads to that help the M90 slide around with no effort at all.

Thanks for the review... looks like a few too many buttons for my liking but I am going to keep an eye out for something slightly simpler that offers on the fly DPI adjustments - that's something I've been thinking about for a long time.

check out the CM Storm Inferno. there is a review here on benchmarkreviews on page 4 of Input Devices. I've had mine for about a year and its a great mouse and not overly complicated with dozens of buttons.

# Pretty good mouseMergatroid 2012-04-20 16:35
I have this mouse in my drawer right now. It's a pretty good mouse even if you have to jump through a few hoops to get it working properly. The thumb buttons are great, and the nice thing is that you don't have to use them all, but just set up the ones that are in the best positions for you. Another great thing is that there is actually a blank spot in the middle of all the buttons for you to place your thumb, something some other mice I could mention seem to have forgotten about. I also like the fact that you can program the "Sniper Button" feature for any of the side buttons. This allows you to get it us for perfect positioning for your thumb, while other mice with this feature are usually stuck using one particular button which may or may not be suitable for your use.
Finally, the tracking on this mouse is one of the absolute best I have felt on any of the laser mice I have used. It was consistently accurate and felt smooth.

It's a good mouse if you don't mind fighting with the software. I was one of the early adapters and I had a heck of a time getting it to work. I hope they've fixed that all up now. If anyone has a problem, visit the Corsair forum, in the Mouse Thread right at the top are instructions that will work for getting everything on the mouse functioning properly.

I aint touching this mouse ever again! I buy one bring it home.. it DOESN'T WORK! straight out of the box and it is broken... I go back to the store get it replaced.. okay this one works... for 4 weeks then just as dead as the first one! And even then in too many games the buttons didn't work.
