Corsair Vengeance M90 Detailed Features

The Corsair M90 like the K90 comes with a very nice piece of software that allows the user to tailor the M90 as they see fit. It allows customization of almost every major feature of the M90 including lift rate, DPI, or binding for each of the 15 buttons.

On the first page, users will be greeted with the all of the options need to quickly and easily customize each button of the M90. If users would like to forgo making each of these profiles themselves Corsair has created a list of premade profiles that can be downloaded directly from their site. Games included in the list include Star Wars The Old Republic, Bulletstorm, Team Fortress 2, and Deus Ex, plus many more.

The second page allows for users to customize the hardware of the M90 a bit. Starting from the top Corsair allows users to set three separate DPI profiles that can easily be switched between with the buttons on the M90. The final DPI setting labeled Sniper is a bit more specialized. When a user sets a DPI to this area it is only activated when the user depresses the button which to which the sniper command has been bound to, this will immediately change the DPI to the Sniper setting allowing for users to make the final fine adjustments with a lower DPI setting than they may normal use. Users can also test the surface quality of the material they are using for their mouse pad helping ensure they are getting the best possible performance out of the M90.

The final page of the M90's software allows users to create and save up to 50 unique profiles. Up to six of these can be assigned to the M90's memory. This allows users to quickly cycle between their onboard profiles using the built in commands that can be assigned to multiple buttons. These six profiles can also save directly to the M90 and when enabled hardware playback allows these profiles to be used without the need for the supplied software, instead each command is directly played from the mouse.

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.
