With the SCIMITAR RGB Elite, Corsair has consistently developed its MMO and MOBA mouse lineup. With a total of 17 programmable buttons, durable Omron switches, patented key slider technology and a reinforced mouse wheel, it is designed to be perfect for World of Warcraft or Overwatch players. The demands of ambitious gamers of these games are high, let’s see if the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB Elite meets them.
Design and Workmanship
What immediately catches the eye with the SCIMITAR RGB Elite MMO/MOBA gaming mouse is the 12 button illuminated KeyPad on the left side. Despite its size, the mouse still looks stylish. As with the predecessor, the design is typically Corsair sleek and has curved edges. Thanks to its 4-zone RGB illumination, it not only looks good, but you can see at a glance which profile is currently active and with which resolution the optical sensor scans the surface. Both settings can be switched through independently with two buttons on the top. Together with the two mouse buttons and the scroll wheel, one counts a total of 17 switches, which can all be freely programmed. For the ring finger there is an extended support surface on the right side.
The workmanship of the SCIMITAR RGB Elite is excellent, as you would expect from Corsair. It lies well in the hand and feels high-quality. Every finger immediately finds its right place on the mouse without a long search. The different surface structure of the twelve macro buttons is practical. So you can simply touch each row and quickly find the right button.
