Our time with the Glaive RGB has been compressed so that we could get our information to you as soon as possible, but many a product don't make it a week on our desk. The fact that we want to find a permanent home for the Glaive RGB says almost everything you need to know. It is not that often that we care for mice this much, and out of many, only five or six mice have been used to upgrade a personal machine. The feel of the Glaive in our hand, the functionality that is delivered, and to be blunt, we dig the way it looks too, all leads to good things. Even with the fact that we would like to have had more time, we will get that time, as we demote an older mouse from service to use the Glaive RGB as much as we want in the future. For us, the Glaive RGB is a perfect fit to a medium sized right hand, and with the wing grip on it, is like it was designed specifically to our specifications and measurements.
The sensor is great, it is finely accurate, but 16,000 DPI is uncontrollable in our testing. We do understand that users love options, and while the top of the range may have exceeded what is humanly normal, we do like that 1 DPI increments are used. So now, the perfect level for each user can be obtained, not just close to it. Using Omron switches is good for the Glaive RGB, but shipping it with fifty million clicks on each of them means that the mouse will be under your control for years to come. The secondary switches work for their intended purposes, but if anything, we do wish the Glaive RGB had a sniper button by default. One can always remap that function to another button, but attempting to use the DPI selector button in game to cycle through takes too much time, and get slightly maddening at times. As a whole, the Glaive RGB along with the CUE software enables a user to set anything you can think of in the feature set, program everything for Macros and profile switching, all told makes this gaming mouse a superior product in functionality.
The cherry on top of the sundae is, that when it comes to grabbing your very own Glaive RGB Gaming mouse, Corsair has managed to give you all of this and not empty your account. Outside of feel and functionality, which are top notch, by the way, we received extra grips to customize the feel, there is a Velcro loop for tending the wire, and a bag to keep all of the spare parts in, and it still only costs $69.99.
Corsair is battling on all fronts with some stiff competition from other manufacturers, but they hit the nail on the head with the Glaive RGB. At this price, as complete as the package is with the Glaive RGB Gaming Mouse, it is hard for us to find reasons for you not to try this mouse out.
