Corsair RGB PRO Gaming Mouse
The left side of the Corsair M55 RGB PRO is designed like many we have seen. An egg shape to comfort the hand while resting on it, with a pair of side buttons near the top of the mouse. Where many use coatings of various types on the sides, Corsair has opted for the highly textured rubber insert for assured grip even in the hottest conditions.
The back edge is rounded, it is higher in the middle, and by glancing at the shape of the top, it is clearly designed for ambidextrous use, with no defined lean for ergonomics we typically see. The Corsair logo on the heel of the mouse is the one "true" RGB LED zone, which can be set to any color or one of the various modes available in iCUE software.
Since the M55 RGB PRO is ambidextrous, it only makes sense that the right side view is a mirror image of what we saw on the left side. Everything you see is identical, down to button placement as well as the rubber insert with triangles used for grip.
The front of the mouse is blunt, but angles from the sides to the center shiny plastic found in the middle of the M55 RGB PRO. The main buttons have a defined gap under them, and between the main buttons is where the cable leaves the mouse.
Between the main buttons, where the shiny bit of plastic continues on to the top of the mouse, we find the lightly segmented scroll wheel with its honeycomb patterned rubber exterior, along with the DPI selector button. Between them is the second RGB LED zone, but it will stay a static color to indicate which level of DPI is currently in use.
Under the M55 RGB PRO is a trio of PTFE feet used to make moving the mouse as effortless as possible. Two average sized feet are found on the leading edge, while the back has an oversized single foot. The product sticker shows information that may be needed once the box is tossed in the trash, but it also has a notch at the bottom of it to allow the centralized eye to track any movements.
The cable that comes out of the mouse is a standard rubberized cable, which has been covered with a braided cloth to dress things up a bit. We like the inclusion of a Velcro strap to help keep the wire tidy when traveling or if it is too long for a tidy desktop appearance. At to the connection, the cover has a Corsair logo on it so it is easier to pick out in the rear I/O, and the connection itself is a USB 2.0 connection left in its natural state.
