Corsair is a US-based peripherals and hardware company founded in 1994. The Scimitar RGB Elite is the newest revision of their MMO/MOBA line of gaming mice. Compared to previous iterations, the shape and shell have remained the same, and Corsair’s patented 12-button key-slider side panel is still there as well. However, the Scimitar RGB Elite comes with a new and updated sensor, PixArt’s PMW3391 capable of up to 18,000 CPI and adjustable in increments of 1 CPI. Additionally, both the internal components and external materials have been revised, along with Omron main button switches rated for 50 million clicks. Of course, extensive software customizability is still available, too, including highly sophisticated macro capabilities and full RGB lighting. Although the Scimitar RGB Elite is mainly an MMO/MOBA mouse, the top-tier sensor and still manageable weight (118 g) also make it suitable for FPS gaming, which is why I’ll review this mouse from the viewpoint of an FPS player as well.
