Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we’re looking at a brand-new, affordable, lightweight mouse aimed at FPS and MOBA players. It boasts an insane 8,000Hz polling rate, with a price tag of £49.99. The mouse in question is Corsair's Sabre RGB Pro, and while it may share the same name, it is a complete re-design of the original Sabre that launched several years ago. Is this new mouse any good? Let's find out.

Pros:

  • Excellent build quality.
  • Ergonomic shape is incredibly comfortable.
  • Quickstrike buttons work perfectly, almost no pre or post-travel.
  • 8,000Hz polling rate really feels like it gives you an edge.
  • Brilliant price point and a non-RGB version available for £5 less.

Cons:

  • 8,000Hz polling rate is most noticeable with high-refresh rate monitors and high-end gaming PCs.
  • Gloss accents pick up grease and fingerprints.

KitGuru says: We absolutely love the Sabre RGB Pro by Corsair. The price point is excellent coming in at £49.99 for the RGB version or £44.99 for the non-RGB version which is also 5g lighter. For the money, you're getting an all-round excellent mouse.
