Corsair Nightsword RGB Gaming Mouse
The left side of the Nightsword RGB is impressive to say the least. At the front is a pair of RGB LED zones with honeycomb pattering, while just above are three LEDs to indicate profile and DPI. Above the wing with the rubber insert are a trio of buttons, forward, back, and a sniper button, all left shiny to match the plastic that surrounds everything. Then, as everything tapers to the rear of the mouse, we see yet another RGB LED panel.
Half of the top surface of the Nightsword RGB is rubber like the side, and yet has the logo exposed, which lights up under power. Where the rubber stops near the bottom, we get more shiny black plastic, which surrounds yet another RGB LED panel.
The right side of the mouse is much simpler, yet still offers some nice additions. There is a rubber insert on this side as well, ensuring the best chance for a solid grip, even with sweaty hands. On top of that, we also get a pair of RGB LED panels, one for and one aft, to encircle the mouse with RGB LED light.
The front edge comes to a sharp point in the middle where the USB cable comes out of the mouse. To go along with all of the other sides of the Nightsword, there are yet another pair of RGB LED panels found here too. As to the main buttons, there is a wide gap between them, and while made of plastic, have a somewhat grippy rubber coating applied to them.
Between the main buttons is a stylized rubber covered scroll wheel, which is also RGB backlit. Movement is heavier in feel than the M55 RGB, and behind this wheel are the profile up and profile down buttons. On the left edge of the left button, there are two more buttons, which by default, are set for DPI selection.
Under the Nightsword we find five PTFE feet. The left side of the mouse has bigger feet than the right side, but that is dues to the largest fifth foot found under the large wing. We can see the eye of the sensor in the middle, but rather than a product sticker surrounding it, there is a stylized removable cover.
Once the cover is pried up at the back edge, and the front tabs are also removed from their notches in the frame, we have full access to the weight installation area. There is room for all six of the weights, but you can also fine-tune the center of gravity on the Nightsword with as few as one, of either the hollow or solid weights.
The cable is much like what we got with the M55 RGB. 1.8 meters of cloth braided goodness that terminates in an easy to identify connection without any fancy gold plating. Since there was no sticker under the mouse, a tag is added to the cable, which is also blocking the view of the Velcro strap keeping the wire tidy.
