Corsair MM800C RGB POLARIS Pad-Cloth Edition w/ Corsair Glaive

Rating: 8.5.

Corsair have been working hard bringing vivid RGB lighting to all of their products. The humble mouse mat is no exception. With 15 customisable lighting zones providing infinite lighting combinations the RGB MM800C Polaris allows PC enthusiasts to wave goodbye to boring gaming surfaces.  This review takes a look at the recently released cloth edition with a RRP of £59.99. Does the Corsair MM800C Polaris performance line up with its impressive looks? 

The majority of testing on this mouse pad was done using the Corsair Glaive RGB Gaming mouse. The Corsair Glaive places a focus on comfort with 3 interchangeable thumb grips and an ergonomic contoured shape. With a 16000 dpi optical gaming sensor and and of course RGB lighting. We briefly take a look at it in this review alongside the Corsair MM800C.

A full review of the Corsair Glaive can be found on KitGuru here.
