With even less time with the Nightsword RGB than with the M55 RGB, we are just getting used to things, but we have a fair grasp on feel and performance. We live mice with wings, which keeps our thumb from dragging on the pad, making movements more accurate and smooth. It did not matter if the game was fast paced or slow and methodical, the Nightsword feels like a natural extension of our right hand.

We also found the layout of the button to be fairly placed for medium to large handed users, and unlike when we used the RAT mouse with buttons on the left button, with the Nightsword RGB, we never accidentally pressed one without full intentions of doing so.

However, we still feel that Corsair likes to put the sniper button too far forward, but to be honest, we use it very little, as we can headshot just as good at 5000 DPI as we can at 800 DPI. Also, consider that with unlimited profiles and full customizations to be had, any game type can benefit from the Nightsword RGB, not just FPS and MOBA selections.

Windows and Productivity

First, let us get this out there. We feel that 18,000 DPI is a near impossible to use amount of DPI. Most of our use was had at 5000 DPI, and that is where we have to lift very little in anything we do, and do not run into sensor wander form even the smallest of movements.

When it comes to the 4K display, we can zoom around at desktop level, start whatever we want with a single or double click, yet at the same time, have the precision to do things like pulling tiny dust particles out of images.

The shape, contours, and layout of the design delivers stress free ergonomics, and for the time we have spent with the Nightsword RGB, we are not worn out or sore, and the heavier weight seems to have no effect on its ability to move smoothly.

All told, even with no intentions to use it for gaming, we would have no issues using this mouse day to day, and tweaking profiles to make use of things like word documents and Photoshop almost lack the need for keyboard input outside of what text you need to write in a Word document, of course.

With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
