Looking Closer

Corsair-M65-PRO-RGB (8)

Out of the gate we will go ahead and say we love the styling on the M65 PRO RGB. At a glance the mouse looks modest enough. When under inspection though you start to see the attention to detail. Nice defined lines, a solid ergonomic feel, and smooth beveled edges. We like the logo design placement update. The M65 PRO RGB just looks classy, and a little bit nasty as well. The styling is easily reminiscent of some of today’s most well known super/hyper cars.

Another thing Corsair got perfect on the M65 PRO RGB is the “High Mass” scroll wheel. The reason we like it so much is the wheels silent operation. Even when scrolling really fast trying to incite noise the wheel stays quite. Combined with the Omron switches rated at 20 million clicks and the solid aluminum core this mouse has a quality feel in hand with nice crispy clicks.

In total there are 8 buttons on the M65 PRO, 7 that can be made to execute just about any string of commands you can conjure up.  Stock button operation is as follows:

  1. Click
  2. Right click
  3. Wheel click
  4. DPI up
  5. DPI down
  6. Forward
  7. Backward

Look at those curves ! Unfortunately Some users stayed away from the M65 PRO RGB solely because the Sniper button is a red. We have mentioned this in other reviews about choosing to place a primary color on a device. In this age of RGB options, users want the entire color scheme of their rig to match throughout. Placing a switch or design in a primary color limits options, which Corsair are all about. How to solve this dilemma? Simply use neutral colors for accents and switches, like gray, or just all black.

Taking a look underneath we find five large PTFE feet help the M65 glide across most standard mousing surfaces. The PTFE feet combined with Corsair’s Surface Calibration Tool makes for an extremely smooth and precise operation on many different types of gaming surfaces. We note again the absence of a container of sorts for any unused weights which could be easily lost.

Flipping the Corsair M65 PRO RGB over gives us access to the adjustable weight tuning system. Three screws which each hold a single weight in place can be removed to customize the weight of the mouse. By swapping the weights and screws in and out, a range of 20.5g is available to get just the right feel. We note that with all the weight in or out the M65 PRO maintained an agile feel.

With a 1.8m braided cord you should be covered on cord length on the M65 PRO RGB. Of course there is a Velcro strap to keep things tidy. We also like the design on the end of the plug, just because we enjoy small adornments of that sort.

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.


  1. If they would just remove that annoying sniper button on the side of the mouse it would be perfect.

    • How is it annoying? It’s a programmable button. If you don’t use it just don’t press it. It sits flush with the thumb rest.
