Introduction

We’ve already favourably reviewed the Corsair Vengeance M90 gaming mouse, and now it’s time to try out its younger sibling, the M60. Apart from sharing a name with one of gaming’s most treasured light machine guns, what does the M60 offer? Well, it’s aimed at a much different audience: FPS gamers. With few additional buttons and a dedicated ‘sniper mode’, the M60 offers a much lighter experience that should definitely please its target market. How does it live up to expectations? Read on to find out.

Specifications and Features

  • 5700 DPI laser sensor, adjustable on-the-fly
  • Sniper Mode – instantly rachet down to a low sensitivity for precise aiming
  • 1ms / 1000Hz polling rate – executes your actions precisely, without delay
  • Motion detection at 165ips and acceleration up to 30g – ideal for low-sensitivity gamers
  • Tunable sensor-lift & surface quality detection – fine-tune to your requirements
  • Adjustable centre of gravity – adjust the balance to suit your style
  • Superior build quality – Machined aluminum monocoque chassis provides unmatched durability and stability, as well as a premium look and feel
  • PTFE Glide Pads – ensures mouse movements are silky smooth
  • Metal, weighted scroll wheel with rubberized surface – improved traction, control and feel

Packaging

The packaging of the M60 is quite similar to the M90 but in a red color scheme instead of a blue one. It’s a standard shrink-wrapped plastic job, but thankfully includes a cut-out panel in the back which lets you remove the mouse without shredding your hands.

On the front of the box, you’re given a first look at the mouse itself, along with a list of features.

The back of the box is similarly pedestrian, offering features in several languages as you’d expect.

It’s a tastefully done package that should attract the eye with its red colour, but isn’t quite up to the par with the full boxes used by other companies (although it is a lot more space efficient).

Let’s continue on to the mouse itself.
