Corsair Katar Pro XT Mouse Review + MM700 RGB!

Today we are taking a look at the Katar Pro XT mouse by Corsair, as well as the MM700 RGB extended cloth gaming mouse pad. If you're in the market for a very affordable, no-frills wired mouse then the Katar Pro XT might be for you. Coming in at £34.99, we compare it to some key competitors like the Logitech G203… but how will it hold up?

KitGuru says: The Katar Pro XT may not be a flagship model but for £34.99 you are getting a great performing mouse on a budget. If you like low friction grips or palm grip this really isn’t the mouse for you, but at such a good price it's hard to be too critical.
