Corsair Vengeance M60 Mouse Review

Main Characteristics
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Corsair Vengeance M60 comes with eight programmable buttons, but the main feature is the sniper button on the left side. When pressed (and it needs to remain being pressed), the button quickly alters the resolution to a value previously set by the user. Once it’s released, the M60 turns back to the current dpi setting.

Since the bundle doesn’t come with an installation CD, the user needs to download the software from Corsair’s website. The application allows the user to program the functions of eight buttons, adjust the resolution in three stages, and create profiles for different games. He or she can also download pre-configured profiles for most games and also trade his or her personal creations with other users. Attention: Unlike other gaming-grade mice, the M60 doesn’t feature a button already set to change user profiles, so the user must either choose one of the eight available to do it or else change the profile through the application.

The button programming interface could have been better designed. The software only shows one button being reprogrammed at a time, so the user doesn’t get an overall view of what he or she is doing or how the whole setting is going. However, the user can adjust the lift height and response time to his or her taste, and then the application can detect the quality of the gaming surface and match the M60 accordingly. The user can also record macros, which makes the M60 a nice companion to the Corsair Vengeance K60 keyboard since the latter doesn’t feature extra programmable keys.

Finally, the M60 has an elegant lighting effect with a blue light glowing from the metal frame.
