Testing the Corsair Vengeance M60
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The first impression a mouse gives is its comfort. The M60 is designed for palm grippers, because the highly rubberized backside is a nice rest for the whole palm. The buttons have a quick response, even those tiny left side buttons. We thought that the right side could have had a better rest for the pinkie. Although it doesn’t scroll horizontally, the weighted scroll wheel is one of the best we’ve tested. The rubberized surface on the wheel makes the scrolling tighter.

The sniper button is the main feature. It allows the user to quickly change the resolution for precision shooting in an FPS match. We will explain. When you play as a sniper in a game like Battlefield 3, you have to decrease the mouse resolution to a lower dpi setting so that you can aim a precise headshot. Of course, there are other buttons assigned to do that (like those below the scroll wheel), but this sniper button is well positioned. Once it’s released, the M60 returns to its prior resolution, so the change is actually immediate for that single shot only. If the user does that with some other button, he or she has to once again hit that particular button to get back to the old setting. The sniper button is a quicker solution for that purpose.

One disappointment was the weight adjustment system. We thought the M60 was a little heavy for our taste (perhaps due to the metal frame), and even without the tiny weights, the overall sensation remained. The system itself is elegant and well-conceived, without plastic covers or special compartments, just the weights to be screwed or unscrewed. However, the removal of the weights only slightly changed the final result.

The software allows some nice configurations, such as adjusting the gliding precision and the lift distance. There are no right settings for those adjustments – the user must choose which setting fits his or her play style. In our case, we like to lift the mouse across the mouse mat, but since the M60 is rather heavy, we left the lift distance on its lowest level.
