Corsair Harpoon RGB Wireless Mouse Review

Rating: 8.0.

Corsair’s Harpoon RGB has been around for over two years now. Currently priced at just £23, it is very much a gaming mouse designed for those on a tight budget who are looking for a good value, no-frills experience. So what happens when you take that same mouse, add Corsair’s new 2.4GHz SLIPSTREAM wireless connectivity, and raise the price to £54.99? Is it is still a compelling option for gamers or are there better alternatives out there?

Launching today at CES 2019, the Harpoon RGB Wireless comes almost exactly a year after the launch of Corsair’s first wireless peripheral – the Dark Core RGB. With a much simpler design, and fewer features, the Harpoon RGB Wireless is undoubtedly aimed at a different target market, though. Can it impress, or has Corsair still got work to do? Let’s find out.
