Price & Conclusion
For £57, this is right at the top end of the gaming mouse market, along with the Razer Lachesis and the Logitech G700. Whilst it provides a fitting amount of mousing action for the price, it’s still a substantial investment. As a mouse can be quite a subjective purchase, it makes sense to try before you buy, so do so if you have the chance (e.g. if a friend has one, or you’re buying from a brick-and-mortar store).
This mouse is one of the best I’ve ever used. While I encountered some issues with button placement and the software, these don’t prevent it from being an excellent gaming mouse. With stellar looks, top quality construction and over-the-top specifications, the Corsair M90 impresses on every front.
Top end specifications – more than you’d ever need
Solid construction – built like a tank
Industrially good looks – unique but not ostentatious
Sub-par button placement – at least for my hands
Occasional problems remapping buttons – a disappointment for an MMO mouse
Weight – metal construction makes it heavier than plastic-only mice
Price – this is a substantial investment, so try before you buy!
