Corsair Glaive RGB Mouse Review

The Corsair Glaive RGB ships in a black box, complete with the classic Corsair yellow accents. A large photo of the mouse itself dominates the front of the box.

Inside, we find two small booklets: one is a quick-start guide, the other is a warranty guide.

Aside from the mouse itself, we also get two replaceable thumb grips in the box, complete with a small draw-string pouch to store them in. We take a look at the mouse with these thumb grips installed further down the page.

Now, moving on the the Glaive itself. It is definitely a bigger mouse, measuring 125.8(L) x 91.5(W) x 44.6(H) mm. It has also been designed with comfort in-mind, and you can see that in the shape of the mouse – it is contoured and curved, so hopefully it will prove to be very comfy indeed.

Incidentally, the Corsair logo at the bottom of the mouse is one of 3 RGB zones, while the 5 ‘dashes' that run up the mouse are DPI stage indicator LEDs.

Taking a look at the sides of the Glaive, the left-hand side of the mouse is home to two side-buttons, but no sniper button. There is also a small LED strip visible just above these side buttons, and this is the second RGB lighting zone. We also get a look at the pre-installed thumb grip here – it is smooth, not textured, and curves slightly inwards.

On the right-hand side there are no buttons, but there is some textured rubber to help your fourth-finger grip.

Attaching the interchangeable thumb grips is very easy as they just snap into place using magnets. Both spares are textured, and one curves slightly outwards, while the other is much larger and provides a proper thumb rest.

At the front of the mouse we find the scroll wheel, and just behind that is a single DPI cycle button.

The very front of the mouse, underneath the scroll wheel and main buttons, is also interesting as it is actually the third of the RGB lighting zones. We take a look at some of the lighting on the next page.

Turning the mouse over, we get a look at the four  PTFE glide pads, as well as the optical sensor. The Glaive actually uses a custom Pixart PMW 3367 sensor, based on the class-leading PMW 3360, which we discuss on the next page.

Lastly, the USB cable is braided and measures 1.8m long.
