Unable to open the mouse without destroying it is our only complaint. We do like to get our eyes on the components for verification to what we are writing, and not that we do not trust Corsair to do what is shown in the specifications, we want to know when it is our words being used to promote it. Beyond that aspect, the new frame design not only keeps those who should not be inside of it out, it also simplifies the assembly, helping to keep the price down for us.
The shape is on point for our hand, the lean is comfortable, the curved main buttons keep your fingers in place, and the large rubber side panels ensure the ability to lift the mouse easily. It is relatively lightweight, even while being larger in overall dimensions, and glides smoothly on the multiple mouse pads we tried it on. As designed, everything works as intended, and with the amount of customization afforded via software, over three profiles, there are essentially nineteen buttons under your control at any time, leaving the profile button usable on all profiles.
Corsair's iCUE software does bolster the package deal quite a bit. With it, you can match lighting to all other Corsair products you may own for a unified look, or have it appear however you'd like with the pair of RGB LED zones. While you may never find the need to set 18.000 DPI for use, we do like the wide range it offers as well as the one DPI incremental changes. We like that angle snapping is turned off by default, and we also like the 1000Hz polling. Macros are handy to those who use them, and we found no boundaries keeping anything you can think of from being programmed.
The one thing that will hit many users as soon as they try it has to be the surface calibration. Without it, the mouse set at 5000 DPI felt like we had placed it in the range of 3200 to 3600 DPI, and had a feeling that was not snappy. However, once tuned, the mouse breathes new life, and for us, did nothing but get better.
What it all comes down to is a personal feel of a peripheral, and while we have had many under our right hand in the past, not many have the comforting feel of the Ironclaw. We can think of maybe three or four mice that are this form-fitting, while still being effortless in use. For many, it seems like they can use anything you put in front of them, and for those of you out there, the budget is critical when making a purchase.
With a price of $59.99 we feel you get a lot of mouse for the money, and even for those not willing to spend $80 plus on a mouse, the Ironclaw RGB should keep you happy. With all the mentions of large hands, palm grips, FPS and MOBA games, don't let all the hype get to you. The Ironclaw RGB FPS/MOBA Gaming Mouse is an answer to anyone looking for a new mouse, specifically those who revere comfort, customization, ease of use, and affordability.
