Let me start by breaking this down a bit. As an avid FPS gamer, I can say there are a few things a mouse must have to work in this sort of gaming environment. The most basics are the movement and the ability to fire and sight down the weapon. This leaves just about any mouse since somewhere in the 1970's to be on the list of answers. Over the years though, most users expect a certain level of "features" to already be thought of in the mouse before they would even consider buying it.
These days Teflon feet, high DPI sensors, comfort grip contours and material choices - they are all what we "expect" to already have been thought out. But what puts a mouse over the top for me are things like on-the-fly DPI changing, a lighting scheme that doesn't resemble a Christmas tree and functionality that is easy to use. On top of that a couple extra buttons here and there and one of the "sniper" buttons popping up on all the latest mice are all just icing on the cake with our latest example.
We are back with Corsair again and unlike the longer and more highly appointed K90, Corsair gives the FPS gamers just what they need in a mouse, without all of the extra do-dads that made some parts of the K90 unusable to me. Here is more of a streamlined way of thinking that brought the K60 into production, the mouse we are going to be discussing shortly following in those footsteps. This product takes a shape that is very conducive to making you hand feel like it naturally should and with its smaller build design it also lends itself to work better for those who prefer a claw grip when running around trying to do the most damage possible to fellow gamers.
If you have been following closely, you would have noticed that I have had the full run of mice and keyboards from the Vengeance series, all except for one. That would be the Vengeance M60 Performance FPS laser gaming mouse and I really do think I may have saved my personal favorite as the last of this lineup to discuss.
Hang with me as I go through the well appointed features and list of specifications, because I think this is where Corsair made the right mouse for not only the FPS crowd, but is truly a mouse that can be used by anyone.
