Reviews around grip (4.61 of 5)

  • It seems to offer really good grip and a better perception of control
  • It has a super smooth gliding action, comfortable grip and RGB glows - what the hell more could you want from a Mouse
  • The smooth grip provides the most narrow option for gripping the mouse
  • It has a super smooth gliding action, comfortable grip and RGB glows - what the hell more could you want from a Mouse
  • In Sensei-styled mice, this front edge usually tapers and gives me a worse grip

Reviews around feel (4.58 of 5)

  • it felt cheap with the matte finish but after breaking it in, that cheap feeling goes away
  • I love the ergonomics of this big mouse and the overall feel in
  • This mouse has a great feel in your band-- I prefer it slightly to the Scimitar or M65 shape
  • The mouse wheel is perfect, with good solid 'notches', it scrolls with a solid and precise feel.
  • I personally did not like the feel of the Razer mouse, after testing it out at a local store

Reviews around size (4.51 of 5)

  • First, I have fairly small hands and short-ish fingers, and this mouse is the perfect size and shape for me
  • This one works marvelously, at only 100 grams, and size is perfect for my hands
  • the mouse wheel has a tire like texturing on it, its also a good size. using the Corsair Utility Engine you have quite a few color options for lighting its pretty nice
  • The large size of the plug is also cumbersome when using this on my laptop -- it literally sticks out so far that it gets in the way of other items.
  • At first this mouse was amazing a different size from what i'm use to but its good but the reason why i rated it so low is that you would have the lights on in the mouse and they would get warm enough to make your hand sweat

Reviews around weight (4.48 of 5)

  • The mouse itself has a great weight and with the 8 programmable buttons, it is great value for many game types
  • The mouse does feel great in the hand and has a nice weight to it though
  • Mouse feels great, has a great weight, but came defective
  • I will be switching to a new mouse which stinks because the overall shape, feel, and weight are great.
  • CONS:- a little on the heavy size; weight is not adjustable.- thumb buttons can feel awkward to press depending on the size of your hand

Reviews around dpi (4.45 of 5)

  • The high DPI should be enough for almost any gamer, and the Corsair software is easy to install and use
  • DPI on the fly button is easy to use (some caveats below) with 5
  • DPI LED)- Thin matte
  • The dpi works like magic and the interchangeable parts are very easy to handle

Reviews around use (4.30 of 5)

  • This really is the most comfortable mouse I have used in at least a decade
  • It's a good mouse and a lot bigger than mice I have used in the past
  • The soft touch plastic used on this mouse feels much more comfortable than the cold plain plastic used on the Razer Mamba
  • Right click doesn't seem to work 60% of the time, ruining the use of it in gaming
  • The right and left click are in the perfect position, nothing is overly heavy or awkward, and it's the most comfortable mouse I've used so far

Reviews around option (4.30 of 5)

  • They could have made a "skinny" option for the thumb rest that made the mouse closer to the G502's width
  • Love the color customization options, but I do have one gripe
  • But it don' t has another problems
  • Despite it being a little wide for me, this is a great mouse with excellent customization options.
  • Dpi options are not very intuitive until you realize that the button on the mouse controls the speed profile.- LED is too bright.

Reviews around feature (4.19 of 5)

  • Overall, the mouse feels great, and probably my favorite feature is the interchangeable side tpieces
  • My favorite mouse I have ever purchased until after around 6 months of use it started to "break" as in it will stop being a mouse and not click, move or do anything
  • so I THINK that would be a good feature for 4K displays
  • All of the current line as of a year or so ago had serious issues, many suffering from mushy and indistinct scroll wheels - not a feature you want in a gaming mouse.
  • Pros: Good looking mouse, feels nice and the modular side rails are a nice feature

Reviews around rgb (4.10 of 5)

  • even has a nice rgb feature that isn't overwhelming10/10 would buy again and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great mouse
  • This mouse is very comfortable, and of course the RGB is very fun!
  • However, while RGB is nice, it alone does not make a good mouse
  • Pretty small mouse for gaming, the RGB is nice and vibrant, the buttons all feel nice
  • I have a cooler master hard RGB mousepad and it made me like the mouse a lot more

Reviews around sensor (4.04 of 5)

  • but I keep going back to my cooler master keys pro s and CM mizar mouse set up
  • Sensor has no issues and has as high or low of a DPI that you could ever need
  • has a great sensor and i like the buttons on the mouse.
  • The optical sensor had a hardware defect that would cause the cursor to jump to a different area of the screen randomly
  • Also, the sensor would sometimes cause my view in-game to suddenly jolt in a random direction

Reviews around gaming (3.92 of 5)

  • This item was great while gaming, but after 2 months it began to disappoint with constant malfunctions, and after 1 week into the third month of me using this item, it completely failed on me and does not work at all.
  • : This is a great mouse, buy it if you want a good, cheaper, gaming mouse that has RGB LEDs, programmable keys, and a good build quality
  • I mean really, how often does users actually use all those extra buttons that come with some mice?The Glaive is a superior gaming mouse and does mundane chores just as good or better than other mice
  • I bought this thing because I wanted a reliable mouse, and literally every cheap $10 chinese gaming
  • Great gaming mouse and the lights can be programmed to match your keyboard if you are using a corsair one

Reviews around light (3.81 of 5)

  • The lighting isn't overdone and the black with the simple 'Corsair' writing across the left button
  • This great lighting is kind of offset by Corsair’s decision to have the DPI light on the left top of the mouse only one color - blue
  • #Corsair4lyfeThis is an excellent mouse - compact, attractive, has a cool RGB lighting, and feels great in game
  • Only problem is the lighting for the colors can be too bright if you set them to rainbow
  • This means no macros, and the lighting is unreliable at best

Reviews around product (3.79 of 5)

  • I'm a huge fan of Corsair, but this is by far one of their worst quality products I've ever purchased
  • It's really a shame, because I've trusted Corsair and enjoyed every product I've bought from them up until now
  • Yes I would recommend this product to anyone who asked.
  • great product a little bit unsymmetrical , not a good software
  • I honestly can't recommend corsair products any more, they simply don't care that this has been going on for over a year.

Reviews around issue (2.44 of 5)

  • but I keep going back to my cooler master keys pro s and CM mizar mouse set up
  • Its good but not great my only issue is that the side button next to the scroll wheel does not sync to the rainbow setting on the rest of the mouse.
  • After 8 months of use, the mouse starts facing a really bad issue like the cheap mouse, I can't drag drop anything, I can't select text, when I do the mouse start release and click by itself, I tried to update software, BIOS, and drivers nothing was helpful
  • The issue appears to lie in the DPI LEDs, which are completely uncustomizable

Reviews around time (2.28 of 5)

  • This time around, instead of constant double clicking, every now and then the right click just doesn't work, and sends no input at all
  • The odd time my computer has been off but the mouse stays lit
  • Other than that, the colors are vibrant, but the light to the left of the wire seems to not illuminate the surface in front of the mouse as well as I originally thought
  • Now many times when I boot up, I get prompted that a firmware update is required, which I can't select with my mouse, and have to tab into the button and hit space bar to begin.
  • Worked fine for several months, now the left click button doesn't work half the time and holding it down bugs out occasionally

Reviews around star (2.05 of 5)

  • I bought this mouse about 3 months ago and it still works just as great as it did when I first purchased it
  • I knocked a star off for this, because a mouse's primary function should be to point at stuff, with all the flashy lights coming second
  • but I keep going back to my cooler master keys pro s and CM mizar mouse set up
  • My favorite mouse I have ever purchased until after around 6 months of use it started to "break" as in it will stop being a mouse and not click, move or do anything
  • Also great!Where this product loses two stars for me, is in the lighting and the software
