Performance is arguably the most important factor to consider when testing a gaming mouse. The Corsair Vengeance M90 features a high resolution 5700 DPI laser sensor which tracked flawlessly throughout our tests and registered every slight movement we made.
Unfortunately, the somewhat substantial weight of this mouse means it can be a little tiring to move around for long periods of time. Corsair have integrated a series of teflon feet on the base of the mouse though, which help ensure movement isn’t greatly impeded.
Our overall impression of the Vengeance M90 is positive. The mouse delivers a combination of stunning build quality, attractive aesthetics and excellent performance.
We do feel that there are a few downsides which you should consider before purchasing. The M90 is quite heavy and cannot be moved with the agility of lighter mice like the SteelSeries Xai. Also, the mouse-wheel barely provides any resistance at all to movement which can make it difficult to scroll accurately.
For many users, the final decision about which product to buy will come down to cost. ARIA stock the Corsair M90 for £58.79 which places the mouse up against some serious competition, especially as it is very similarly priced to the SteelSeries Xai. Comparing the two mice side by side, the Xai is my favourite as it feels more agile and glides more smoothly. That said, we have to consider that the M90 is designed with MMO and RTS gamers in mind, so the vast array of macro buttons will be very tempting.
Buy direct from ARIA for £58.79 inc vat.

KitGuru says: An excellent product but it faces stiff competition at this price point.
