Corsair SABRE RGB

Appearance

The packaging for the Sabre RGB features a black and yellow livery and is kept very simple with a glossy product picture and basic information about the Sabre RGB; the front opens and reveals the Sabre RGB held within.

On the back side we find more detailed information on the key features of the Sabre RGB.

When we examine the Sabre more closely, we can see the matte cyber gray color of the mouse, with its glossy black programmable buttons. We also see the RGB Corsair logo and other RGB lighting that Corsair has designed into the Sabre.

The Sabre is what we would consider to be a minimalist gaming mouse. Corsair kept the design simple and to the point by only offering enough buttons for FPS games without cluttering the mouse. The interface was well thought out.

On the left side we can clearly see two of the programmable buttons, the forward and back buttons, as well as the recess for your thumb. All of the buttons are within easy reach, and we can also see two of the other programmable buttons that you access with your left finger.

From the top of the mouse, especially when powered on, you immediately see the Corsair logo that shines as brightly as a lighthouse. The scroll wheel that lights up also stands out above the glossy buttons. Then, directly below, we find one of the largest programmable buttons. The standard right and left clicker buttons were very responsive. Directly next to your left finger are two other programmable buttons.

When flipping over the Sabre, we immediately noticed the yellow accent “hockey stick” stripe that goes along the 10,000 DPI optical sensor. We also noticed the oversized anti-friction surfaces that Corsair went with on the bottom of the mouse. The other feature that stands out on the bottom is the lit up scroll wheel that is visible through the bottom side, which is unusual. The other odd feature is what reminds us of air splitters on cars and with the RGB lighting, is a throwback to neon lights under a car.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

Crucial P5 Plus 2TB

The Crucial P5 Plus is the successor the P5 that Crucial launched last year and is the first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD from the company. The latest model dropped the 256GB model, so the starting available capacity for the P5 Pro is 500GB. Additionally, the drive is also available in 1TB and a new storage capacity of 2TB model. The P54 Plus is priced similar to the P5 though there is a slight bump in the price where drive is retailed at $107.99(500GB), $179.99(1TB), and $367.99(2TB). The 2TB model is definitely a welcome addition and if we judge by the price per gigabyte, the 1TB model would be the most economical option. Despite the slight bump in the price, the P5 Plus are still priced competitively against its competitors. The question is, just how well would the performance backing it up? We shall find it out today.
