Personal experiance with this mouse is mixed. Way better premium product compared to the wired version, however I was plagued with connectivity issues and resorted to using it in wired mode. I honestly struggle to recommend this to most people as my wifi, Xbox controller and Bluetooth all interferes with it, a change to Logitech has had no further issues. When I was troubleshooting I discovered plenty of threads on the Corsair website with similar issues. All in all a well built mouse at a excellent price but I would struggle to recommend it as there are lots of competition in that price point.
If using for productivity with a laptop, any recent laptop has Bluetooth regardless of Windows or Mac so the unifying dongle is not needed and will just be blocking a usb-a port, catch in bags or get lost.
I have an old Logitech mouse with usb dongle. Would I need to buy the unified dongle (it’s £10.99 on Amazon) or do you think the old one would work?
I bought this version for the same price last Friday, excellent mouse and working great with my Mac using the dongle.
I posted that deal aswell, the mods took it down as it was an Amazon marketplace seller with less than 300 feedback in 3 months which is fair enough ;( (lol) 🔥🌈💜
Mine delivered today. German packaging makes no real difference, the very small writing on the side of the box has German first, then English, French and so on. Probably the EU one has English first?
I use a AAA lithium battery in my g305, and would last 6 months. That combination of battery makes it very light as well.
I just ordered it lets see how it goes ! thank you
I just bought the g305 and aerox to compare them, I don't feel 100% comfortable with the superlight but it's the best so far vs the big names, I game pretty competitively , let's see how it goes ! thank you
I'd try it if you ain't enjoying your current get it through amazon if you don't like it easily return it
The 20 degree tilt has meant I can spend way more time on my PC than the flat angle.
Think the Logitech M370 or M375 wireless a better choice. In my experience Logitech make the best trackball mice. Have a couple of the M370 andth MX Ergo. The ergo is the best mouse I have ever used. The 20 degree tilt really makes a difference.
Wires is wires. Who needs em?
I can recommend logitech M570. I use it in the right hand and I am left handed.
Bear in mind that trackballs don't move, so the case for having a battery operated one is a lot less strong than for a mouse.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/PERIMICE-720-Bluetooth-Ergonomic-Trackball-Adjustable/dp/B084TJS4H9?ref_=ast_sto_dp&th=1&psc=1 I can't vouch for it and only came across it by accident when on the Perixx site researching this deal.
Can anyone point to a bluetooth version like this one,decent and cheap?thanks
I'd have gone for this if it was a wireless mouse. I had a bog standard Jelly Comb ergonomic mouse that has decided to give up the ghost recently.
For most things trackballs are as good as using a mouse. I only prefer a mouse for for drawing work and video games. I started with a logitech trackball, which was good, but the switches under the buttons kept on wearing out. Now I use a Kensington Expert mouse trackball, which is huge, but very nice to use and has lasted about 5 years now. I also have a Kensington Orbit, but that is missing a scroll wheel, so I wouldn't recommend it.
I had this no issues, till i lost the reciever. now cant do anything with it. such a shame. for those who might lose small stuff try get one where u can store the reciever in the mouse itself once ur done with it
Obviously you cannot expect a lot for £6.50, but these mice are useless for anything that requires a bit of precision, they are ok for browsing and stuff i suppose, but not much more.
It's a great price for a simple wireless mouse with a reliable connection. If all you need is a wireless mouse that works then go for it but this is the most uncomfortable mouse I have ever used because it's smaller than average and really light. I prefer a larger mouse with a little more heft even when travelling. I know that's a personal preference but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Thanks, I'll bookmark that and keep an eye on the price. I would rather pay a bit more and get something decent than as weeHamish said.
I have no idea if and how good this Corsair mouse is, however I can fully recommend this wireless Logitech, especially if you can wait, it drops below £30 quite often on Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07CGPZ3ZQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_PMJ13X31TX71GZE8CPDC?psc=1 I've said it before, this is the best mouse you'll find under £50, wireless and accurate. Battery also lasts quite a long time.
yes its crap dont bother...
As the father of a 10 ten year old that recently asked if he can get "a proper gaming mouse" rather than the old Dell wireless office mouse I have fobbed him off with for the last two years: putting aside that this is wireless; in performance terms (DPI/CPI, etc) is this better or worse than the wired version that is half the price or am I in my old man ignorance comparing apples and oranges? https://business.currys.co.uk/catalogue/computing/accessories/keyboards-mice/corsair-harpoon-rgb-pro-rgb-optical-gaming-mouse/N759815W?cidp=Froogle&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7-KCwe-_8AIVD-3tCh0MrQ7kEAQYAiABEgI6wfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
For me no, the button placement is better on the g502. It's easier to actually use/reach the buttons. I also prefer the shape. It's all personal preference though.
Had the 502 hated it, got this a month or 2 back when it was £60 and absolutely love it
No, I have a wired 502 and got one of these as a wireless, very poorly made in comparison and didn't like the shape - the nail in the coffin was how it glitched out the software making it pretty unusable - hopefully the 502 wireless will come back down to £60 soon.
Hot for the price - Awesome sensor, great shape (if it suits you), good build quality, terrible switches.
