I needed to replace my Razer Naga Chroma and was hesitant to switch brands/products. I’m really glad I did though. This mouse is awesome! It’s smooth, EASY to set up and the movable keypad is great. I am a lady gamer and I have small hands. I was worried this mouse would be too big for me. I actually think it’s more comfortable. It’s a little bit wider than the Razer but it still fits well in my hand. The buttons are larger than the Naga which is so awesome. It’s harder to acddiently click two at the same time. The alternating texture of the buttons is a nice feature too.

Many people are claiming the set up is hard, it’s not. The issue is that the numbers are not bound when you buy the mouse. All you have to do is download the CUE software and bind the keys to whatever you want. In my case, I rebound the keys to 1-9 and -, =. It took all of 3 mins and it was done. YouTube is a heck of a resource!

I would definitely recommend this mouse to anyone. I love it!

If 4.5 stars were an available review, I'd pick that, because this thing has to lose a half star for lack of having a left-right option to the scroll wheel, as well as a funky interface. Aside from that, this is the best of the MMO mice because of the textured side buttons and the ability to slide them into proper position to fit all hands. The Razer Naga, which is the chief competition here, is a much more precise-feeling mouse, has a better click feel to the left and right mouse buttons, and offers left-right use of the scroll wheel. But the Corsair is competitive on pointing accuracy, and the side button system puts it over the top, as the Naga either fits you or it doesn't. If you don't need lateral options with your scroll wheel, the Corsair pulls strongly ahead -- until you get to the interface software, which is where you'll assign keybinds. The Naga of course forces you into Razer's proprietary (and resource-sapping) Synapse software, which can be buggy under certain conditions. But it's a Singer sewing machine compared to Corsair's "Corsair Utility Engine," which is almost complex just for the heck of being complex. It's not intuitive, its help sections are woefully inadequate, and it's easy to foul up a profile without really realizing you did it. Like Synapse, Utility Engine loads on startup and if it fails to load properly or quickly (which happened to me quite a bit), you're left with a three-button mouse until it decides to do so. Love or hate Synapse, I used a Naga for six months and never had it fail to fire up. But even with the roughness around the edges, I would still take the Scimitar 99 times out of 100 just from the standpoint of adjustability and feel.

After trying 5 new styles from 2 to 12 buttons - this just works (Plays) better. Its adjustability provides a good range of adaptability has made it so I can easily reach the last 3 (10,11,& 12) buttons with ease, (some retraining of my thumb needed). I just started playing with a mouse and keyboard (VS controller) and nothing was working, So Frustrating - it made me want to chuck the idea of them.

My girlfriend (as a girlfriend will do) showed me a better way and almost overnight started to enjoy the multi-command environment that is MMOs I move the 12 buttons set forward and locked it in place. Now I can use all 12.
Started with the back 3 - then included the front 3 and so on. Letting my thumb (mind) get used to using them before adding more. The transition from the controller to mouse and KB took only 2 weeks to use it at about 85-90% of accuracy from 15 years of experience with controllers - That is a short time to trade-in and learn a new skill set.

Well done Corsair, well done!
Could you please make a wireless version?

Update 7-8 2019 The adjustment screw on my unit is a 2.5MM Allen head (seem to be a company secret!) as they would not list it in a posting here. Your unit may be different.
Still a great mouse!

this mouse is awesome for FPS gaming. i play planetside 2, battle field, and call of duty. works great! this is my first corsair mouse. i've used micrsoft mouse in the beginning then been a fan of logitech mouses. i came from using a logitech G700 and G602. both are wireless mouses. this isn't a flame on logitech because all wireless mouse would have this issue.. every few days i would have to swap out the rechargeable battery. i would always have to keep a fresh charged battery or i couldn't play.

this cosair scimitar pro mouse has the looks, comfort, and tons of buttons for you to bind. the lights on the buttons, scroll wheel, head lights, and side lights look super cool. you can change each light independently and you can choose from a color pallet or choose the exact fade you want with a color bar.

so the feature that stands out with this mouse is that the side buttons move up/down (respectively). so for your thumb you can move the buttons more up or middle or down to fit your comfort. i think that is a fantastic feature. the problem with any new mouse you have to train your hand to all button positions again. some times the side buttons are really out of reach and it would be nice if the set of buttons can move. well this mouse it allows you.

the mouse is made for MMO but i use it for FPS and works great. the only thing i would like corsair is if you made a wireless version of this mouse. i had to break out the mouse bunge again. i haven't used a mouse bunge for like 8 years. i prefer wireless and none of corsair's wireless line worked for me.

i'm happy with this mouse. great design, look, and feel.

I was using a Perdition mouse (which I still think is a great mouse) but I was noticing the angled buttons on the grid caused discomfort and my thumb started to develop a callus after prolonged intense gaming because of how quickly I seem to move my thumb. Also, it has a glossy finish that seemed to collect dirt.

This mouse, those problems are gone, and there are additional benefits. It has a nice matte finish. The movable button grid is also excellent for my large hands and I find my thumb cramping less. The buttons are smooth to move over quickly, but there is a noticeable texture on the 4-6 and 10-12 rows to easily distinguish the buttons if you like that. The buttons have a good size and feel and the click feels good. Even the ring finger rest is comfortable and has a nice grip feel to it.

I will say that the software is very annoying. It is pointlessly complicated and sometimes I have to unplug and plug in the mouse to get it to load the settings correctly, but at least it is not often and never has it lost settings randomly during use.

I love the mouse enough that the annoyances with the software are not enough for me to lower the rating. I highly recommend this mouse, whether you are just getting into using a button grid mouse or you have been using them for a while.

So, all in all, I do like this mouse so far, but there have been things that I did have some issues with at first, such as allocating the buttons to do different things than there original purpose but that's no fault of the Mouse and all of the fault of Corsair CUE software, which, while improved is still a little difficult to use. I will say though that they do have some tutorial videos that you can view which will help in most cases. Outside of that small issue, the mouse itself is plug in play. I already had the CUE software installed as I have a Corsair AIO on my PC but if you do not, I assume that is the part where they will help you download the software, which isn't very hard. Worst case scenario, go to Corsair's website and you can get it there. All in all I am liking this mouse quite a bit but will have to see how it works out as I have read reviews about the middle button going out after some short usage, hopefylly that isn't the case here but I will keep y'all updated!

I had a Razer Naga for the past 6-7 years. Went through easily 4 or 5 of them. The good news is their warranty is FANTASTIC...so I only had to purchase 2 total mice and the rest were warrantied. However, that is still a huge PITA. I switched to Corsair, and I have been happy so far....I have only owned the mouse under a year though, and thats generally when things start going wrong with equipment.

The CUE interface is a good program, and keys are easily assigned/macros created. Good mouse feel. Its a larger mouse, which I like for palming the mouse vs claw grip.

Overall, from the Corsair products I own, i feel the build quality is better than other brands (razer), and I look forward to my keyboard/mouse/fans lasting a long time.

Over the past decade, I've owned several Razer Nagas, and one Logitech G600; and I didn't like any of them as much as the Scimitar. The ergonomics of this mouse are second to none, with the adjustable side panel accommodating a variety of hand sizes. My fingers being on the shorter size, I'm able to use this comfortably with a claw grip, having the panel slid all the way back. My only complaint about this mouse would be the Corsair software, which has improved significantly since I first used it. It can still be clumsy to navigate, though it no longer suffers from many of the bugs that plagued it in the past. When you do get a handle on the software, it offers a wide variety of features to customize your experience.

I would definitely buy this mouse again, and given the improvements in the software since I first purchased it, I would even more surely give corsair my business again.

I ordered the Corsair mouse because my Logitech 5 yr. old G600 MMO had serious problems (the G600 was not available when I ordered the Corsair}. I really like the ability to move the entire side button arrangement to accommodate hand size. However, unlike the Logitech G600, there is no 3rd "shift" button to change the actions of the side buttons to add actions to those buttons. The mouse wheel does not move left or right for back/forward navigation on websites like the Logitech G600. I really miss those functions.

Bottom line for me, the Corsair is a solid mouse and worthy of high praise but for me the Logitech G600 still reigns supreme for gaming.

If Corsair would add the shift button and make the wheel move left and right it would definitely be the winner. But for now it's the Logitech G600 for me.

Pros: There is a lot to say here its a great mouse with a ton of features. The side buttons are easy to use and being able to move them around is great as not all people have the same size hands(i have larger hands so i moved them forward). Its got great tracking and is useful in all types/genres of games. I play just about everything under the sun from CSGO to FFXIV and I really bought this with MMO's in mind and its wonderful add on for those and good at the other stuff too.

The Corsair utility initially was crap but that seems to have been ironed out by getting rid of the bad Strafe keyboard that i purchased along with this and it seems to have calmed down now. Also not a problem but an interesting side effect that others have mentioned is that when the mouse comes awake after a time out or sleep its a bit jiggy when first moved but then the tracking finds itself and its fine. Its not a long period of time like a couple of seconds or so. Its worth mentioning but in no way effects anything its more of an idiosyncrasy.

The only thing and its a nit pick really is I would kill for a forward and backward button(s) for browsing again but its just a observation really.

Its a good mouse and it seems to be a winner for MMO gaming with good functionality.
