Gaming Mouse Final Thoughts
The Corsair Vengeance M90 is a fantastic mouse that provides many features to enthusiasts. With its 15 programmable buttons the M90 has a near infinite number of uses based on the needs of the user. Whether it is simple commands to reload or throw a grenade in Battlefield, or a complex set of commands for a MMO like Star Wars the Old Republic the M90 is up to the task. Backing up the usefulness of the M90 is its durability since it is build off of a sold aluminum core which also gracefully accents the black exterior of the M90. Finally with the ability to store up to six profiles on board the M90 really allows for enthusiast to be able to take their settings with them to a LAN party or a friend's house without the need to install additional software.
Normally this section is dedicated to me looking at how a product could be improved in future revisions. Up until now I have always compared the mouse I am looking at to my Razer Deathadder and there are always faults that for some reason or another that would keep me from replacing it. For once though I am at a loss for words with the M90 it has the perfect combination of appearance, performance, functionality and value that really make it a winner.
Corsair Vengeance M90 Conclusion
The Corsair M90 with its 15 buttons, 5700 DPI sensor, 1000Hz polling rate, and on-the-fly DPI changes has every bit of performance a user could want in a mouse. For users who do lots of high speed gaming the high sensitivity of the Avago Technologies ADNS-9500 sensor allows for quick, accurate movements. When it comes to more subtle movements the lower DPI settings allow for very accurate sweeping motions with final adjustments made using the sniper setting allowing for a quick drop to a very low DPI setting. At the same time the design of the M90 makes for a very comfortable experience allowing for long term use even in tense situations.
Much like each of the products in the many different markets Corsair has ventured into the M90 is a truly beautiful design. Its matte black exterior is accented with the aluminum frame that the M90 is built on. When combined with the blue hue that each of the LED's gives off and the white Corsair logo and it comes together for a truly beautiful mouse.
With a solid aluminum body under the matte rubber exterior the Corsair M90 is built for the long haul. Corsair also stands behind their M90 providing their users with a 2 year warranty should something go awry.
With 15 buttons the Corsair M90 has excellent functionality. The software allows for the creation of 50 profiles of which six can be stored on the M90 allowing for an enthusiast to take their configurations with them to LAN parties or to a friend's home without the need to install new software. These profiles can be designed for a million different uses and with the prebuilt profiles that Corsair provides many games will already have many of the best options already mapped out in the most efficient manner possible.
For $79.99 at Newegg, the Corsair M90 is a fairly expensive mouse which competes directly with the Razer Naga MMO mouse which is priced $10 below it for the standard wired edition. Both of these mice have laser sensors in the 5600-5800DPI range, 15-17 buttons, a 1000Hz polling rate, and fantastic software. Overall I would say that although expensive the Corsair M90 fits into the market segment it was designed for.
Because of its beautiful design, dominating performance, extreme customizability, and its durable frame I am honored to present the Corsair Vengeance M90 Benchmarks Reviews Golden Tachometer award for excellence.
