The Corsair M65 RGB mouse is, appropriately enough, a sleek, dangerous-looking thing of beauty, a mix of contours and sharp angles. The matte surface is non-slip for fast, precise movements, it has a braided cable, and it feels pleasantly solid. It’s also part of Corsair’s RGB range, meaning it has three separate lighting sections that can be customized with 16.8 million colours in a variety of ripple, wave and chase effects.While design and aesthetic appeal are clearly a key focus of this mouse, it by no means skimps on the features. The 8200 DPI sensor is the best we tested, and it comes with on-the-fly switching via two buttons below the scroll wheel, although the colour-changing indicator is less convenient than the Kone’s voiceover system.
Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury
The G402 Hyperion Fury is part of the gaming range from Logitech, who has a substantial pedigree when it comes to PC peripherals in general. While they’re not hugely known for producing gaming gear, the level of experience and expertise they can bring to the table, or in this case, desk, is undeniably fearsome, including a ‘fusion engine’ built for 420 inches per second of tracking.The G402 is definitely one of the most user-friendly mice we tested - it fits ergonomically into the hand, and we barely had to move our thumb to reach the two side buttons. Counting these, the Hyperion Fury has eight programmable buttons, including a sniper switch and four-level on-the-fly DPI switching. The buttons for shifting the DPI up and down, however, are located just in front of the thumb switches and are a somewhat uncomfortable finger-stretch away.
