We continue to explore the new Vengeance line from Corsair. After our review of their FPS keyboard, the K60, it’s time to check out its companion mouse, the M60. The model reaches 5,700 dpi of resolution, and its main features include an aluminum metal frame and a red sniper button for precision shooting. Let’s describe the product and then proceed to the analysis.

The Vengeance M60 has a rubberized upper body of plastic over an aluminum metal frame. The segmented body exposes the metal underneath it, giving a futuristic and aggressive design to the mouse (it looks like a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica). On the upper body, the user can find the solid metal scroll wheel with a rubberized scroll surface and two buttons to alter the resolution. In between both buttons, there’s a small LED display for the current resolution level.

Made of smooth plastic, the left side features two tiny buttons for Internet navigation and a huge red button – that’s the sniper button for quick resolution change. We’ll talk about it later when we test the mouse’s performance.

The right side has just a very small indent that cannot actually be called a proper pinkie rest. It’s shorter than the left side and leaves more of the metal frame underneath exposed.

The underside features three small weights that can be unscrewed with the help of a coin, five low friction PTFE pads for precision gliding, and the Avago ADNS-9500 laser sensor that reaches 5,700 dpi of resolution.

The six feet (1.80 m) cloth-wrapped cable comes with a small strap to help secure it when the mouse is being transported, and a blue USB connector that is easily spotted among the nest of cables behind the PC.
