It’s quite rare for a truly different gaming mouse to come along and even more so for it to satisfy picky gamers. The Corsair Vengeance M60 stands out thanks to a chunky folded aluminium core with the panels attached to the outside. This gives it a very unique feel and a great open-air look.
Inside the M60 is a 5700dpi Avago ADNS-9500 LaserStream sensor that can be adjusted in 100dpi increments. It can handle 30G acceleration and a tracking speed of up to 165ips. In testing we held the M60 in a half-claw grip but those with smaller hands will easily be able to rest their palms. It’s very comfortable in use and the large air gaps help keep your hand cool in the heat of battle. The feet are extremely slippery and it includes three removable weights. The scroll wheel is also very solid and has an excellent feel as well as blue backlighting.
The M60 also has a unique Sniper button. Activated with your thumb this drops the dpi slightly while pressed to allow for more accurate aiming if sniping. It also has two more thumb buttons that along with all the other buttons can be programmed to whatever action or macro you’d like.
If you want to co-ordinate your peripherals the M60 design is also carried across to the excellent Corsair K90 keyboard. Perhaps the M60’s best aspect is that can be bought for under $70 online; we’d consider it a must-have for almost any gaming setup.
