Over 20 years ago, Corsair was established as one of the world’s leading high-performance DRAM manufacturers. Few years later they have stepped up their business by producing a wide range of other PC components including power supplies, PC chassis, cooling solutions, and solid-state drives.
In 2014, which was just three years ago, Corsair enters the gaming peripheral market under the Corsair Gaming branding. They now have a huge selection of gaming keyboards, mice, headsets, and mouse surfaces to cater for gaming needs including eSport in the professional arena. For gaming mice alone, they have quite a number of series covering the First-Person Shooter (FPS) and massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) genres. These include the Sabre/Optical, M65 Pro, Scimitar Pro, and now the GLAIVE RGB, which turns out to be our subject of review today.
Like other offerings in in Corsair’s gaming mice lineup, the new GLAIVE RGB is designed from the ground up with gaming in mind, providing gaming enthusiasts with the best gaming experience right under their hands. The mouse comes equipped with a high-end 16,000 DPI optical sensor, long-life Omron switches, three interchangeable thumb grips, and of course advanced RGB LED lighting system.
For us at OCDrift, having acquired and have been using the Sabre RGB Laser for years, we must say that this gaming mouse has successfully given us great impressions from solid build quality to unmatched comforts. With the GLAIVE RGB on hand today, will Corsair continue to impress us with the new offering? Stay with us as we check out what’s so special about the gaming mouse that deserves our attentions.
