PCMag Reports the Corsair Vengeance M60 Mouse to be Elegant in its Simplicity

18-May-2012

I'll be the first to admit it: first-person shooters are not my forte. My main point of contention is that everyone else always just seemed to be, well, better at them than me, particularly when it came down to aiming. Of course, some of this is due to genetic predisposition—not everyone can be blessed with incredible reflexes. But the tools at your disposal are almost equally important. Enter the Corsair Vengeance M60 ($69.99 list), a gaming mouse designed to bring out the killer in you. Designed with first-person shooters in mind, the M60 sports a dedicated sniper button that instantly lowers your DPI for maximum precision, allows for sensitivity adjustment on the fly, and boasts a cool, Blade-Runner-esque design.

The M60 $68.99 at TigerDirect.com sports an eye-catching, futuristic look. Its contour shape resembles an alien's head, with an opening in the back that reveals a metallic frame. It's almost elegant in its simplicity. Unlike the plethora of buttons crammed onto the Mad Catz Cyborg M.M.O. 7 Gaming Mouse ($159 street, 3.5 stars), the inclusion of a dedicated "sniper" button in the thumb cradle is the M60's only embellishment beyond a standard gaming mouse. Like the pinky rest, the thumb cradle bears a slightly rougher texture than the top of the mouse to provide a better grip. Two buttons above the sniper button on the crest of the mouse come pre-configured as "forward" and "back" buttons. In between the right and left mouse-click buttons is a solid metal, rubberized tracking wheel, beneath which are two additional buttons for on-the-fly DPI adjustment. An LED light beneath the track wheel emits a blue-ish patina. Topping off the aluminum unibody is a soft-touch textured, somewhat rubbery plastic surface. The plastic texture provides an aesthetically pleasing contrast to the aluminum construction and didn't attract an inordinate amount of oil buildup after prolonged use. And, judging by how comfortably the M60 fits in the palm of your hand, there will be plenty of prolonged use, both on and off the gaming grid... Learn More
