The Corsair Vengeance M95 gaming mouse is a beauty in its own class of mice. The glossy finish, aluminium base and programmable keys numbering more than ever before, make it special for the gaming arena. Here are some features of this gaming beast.

 

  • This mouse has been primarily designed for Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) games and the Real Time Strategy (RTS) games.
  • The left and right mouse buttons are rated for upto 20 million clicks.
  • In comparison to the M65 that had eight programmable keys, the M95 contains a total of “fifteen” programmable keys, including nine side buttons clustered together at the left side of the mouse.
  • The ‘high-mass’ scroll wheel holds a perfect amount of resistance before each scroll action.
  • Two buttons on the top left side for “DPI sensitivity” settings.

Besides being built exclusively for MMO and RTS games, by personal experience the mouse performs equally well for First Person Shooters (FPS) games.

Setup & Installation

The mouse is a standard plug and play device. However, you need the software to configure the extra side buttons. The DPI settings buttons work without the software, but that too may require software for proper configuration of mouse DPI sensitivity. The software is easily available on the Corsair website.

Pros

  • Though you are not likely to use the “nine” extra buttons provided at the side at the same time, it is always good to have multiple options for settings and configurations.
  • Aluminium built gives the mouse a solid feel.
  • 6 profile indicating LEDs.
  • DPI sensitivity buttons allow sensitivity adjustment on the go.

PTFE glide pads at the base of the mouse makes it a fairly low friction movement device over any standard surface.

Cons

  • The M95 uses the same software as the M65. Though same, the software isn’t very user friendly and just covers the basics.
  • The M95 misses the weight adjustment functions like in the M65. However, the weight of the mouse is just right for gaming purposes so this isn’t a big drawback.
  • The M95 does not store the profile locally. Should you need to transfer the profiles, you will need to do so manually.
  • Using the side keys may not be most comfortable and could be troublesome if the keys are assigned to frequently used functions.
