Corsair Harpoon RGB Gaming Mouse Review, The Best budget Mouse Ever Made!

by birtanpublished on May 5, 2021

You Corsair are aiming for the budget market once again with the newly released harpoon Mouse when I heard dis Mouse was being released I quickly looked at the specs but my jaw dropped once I seen the recommended retail price 25 UK pounds in the UK and $29.99 US dollars in the US and at those prices the harpoon could end up being the greatest budget Mouse of all time featuring the Pixar pmw 3320 optical sensor and it has a maximum dpi of six thousand going all the way down to 250 dpi it features Omron switches a dedicated dpi button a super responsive 4,000

Hertz polling rate and it weighs in at only 80 grams so this could not only be a great or our mouse but amazing for FPS games okay so let's take a closer look at the mouse the dimensions of the harpoon is a hundred and eleven point five millimeters in length sixty-eight point three millimeters in width and forty point four millimeters in height so it's a little bit wider than what I would personally normally prefer although the mouse has recessed grooves on each side so the gripping width is more like 55 millimeters which would be a near-perfect two to one ratio my hands

Are 18 centimeters in length on my thumb and ring finger fit around the mouse and inside those grooves perfectly it really does feel like my hand was used in the design process for this mouse I wasn't expecting this at all it's a real pleasant surprise and let's face it most mice at 25 pounds aren't normally very good Corsair have added rubberized grips to each side I'm not normally a fan of rubberized grips by actually love how they feel on the harpoon the falling back buttons moving on are placed okay they're little bit too far forward for my liking as I struggle to use the

Forward button in games but either way they are great quality and they have a solid tactile bump and they do not travel past their actuation points the left and right clicks feature amnon switches they are rated to 10 million clicks they have a larger distance on the harpoon compared to what you would find on a more premium ice although I really like the feel of them because each click felt slightly more noticeable because of the larger travel distance and slightly more defined moving on to the scroll wheel personally I didn't like it the scroll steps are

Not that well defined although over time I'm sure I could get used to it but I did struggle switching weapons in some games but moving on to the DPI adjustment button that has perfect placement and not once did I hit it by accident lastly before we take a look underneath the mouse the harpoon features full RGB backlighting from the courser logo on the rear of the mouse it actually has a purpose as well as it will tell you your current dpi as long as you memorize the colors it uses of course but taking a look underneath the mouse there are four

Extra-large Teflon feet and they make the harpoon super slide II with zero snagging Corsair also love to run the cable on the left side of the mouse some people would say upsets the balance of the mouse but myself I don't see a single issue with it the mouse definitely feels different because of it but not in any negative way in my own personal opinion but if we jump up quickly into the Q software you get features never seen before on a mouse of this price point the Q software allows for full button remapping from single keys to full macro supports RGB lighting

Ranging from sixteen point eight million colors is available and you can choose various lighting effects we also get five steps of dpi adjustments as well as a single sniper dpi setting that can be assigned to a single button and here is where you can choose the different lighting options for each individual dpi adjustment one note is in the performance tab that isn't any way of changing your liftoff distance so it's a good job courser have set it to three millimeters as any higher and I think the mouse would have been ruined although personally I would have liked

It to have been around two millimeters so that's it all the specs and features wrapped up now it's time to get on to the good stuff what is actually like to gain with now my opinions are purely based reflecting on the price but honestly guys the harpoon is not very good it's amazing that's right I absolutely love it I am so impressed with it the only issue that I did have obviously as I mentioned previously was the scroll wheel but although a little bit more practice with it I'm sure I could get used to it but I did have some trouble switching

Weapons in-game so I'm going to call it guys right now this is the best budget Mouse ever made and it literally keeps up with the big boys and I think it's more to do with my hand size and shape being perfect for this mouse sure the harpoon doesn't feel that premium in your hand the scroll wheel could definitely be better and a 33:20 sensor isn't quite as good as the likes of the 3366 but all of that doesn't mean much when you compare it to a great shape weight and balance and corsair have nailed it let's all remember we're talking about an extremely cheap mouse

Anyone on a budget looking for a new mouse you need to pick this up and nothing else the final score for the harpoon is going to be a 9 out of 10 it was just the scroll wheel and ever so slightly high lift off distance that stopped it from getting a 10 out of turn but they were all very minor things and for the price of 25 pounds in $29.99 US dollars the features you'll get in with this mouse is definitely worth the 9 out of 10 and I can honestly say to you guys you need to go and pick one of these up even if you use it as a backup Mouse because it

Is a steal but anyway guys I hope you've enjoyed the review I'd be mark from Tony synes tech oh no sorry silence Tech goodbye
