CORSAIR M65 PRO RGB FPS GAMING MOUSE

TESTING

A large portion of our testing time was spent with Battlefield 1. It was an absolute blast testing the M65 PRO RGB in what we would consider a near perfect environment to showcase it’s abilities. With Battlefield’s long open levels the sniper button was incredibly handy, allowing us to zero in on our attackers far out on the horizon with ease. Many long range kills ensued. When taking to the skies in a fighter or bomber having quick switch DPI option was quite helpful. With a really high DPI it was much easier to perform evasive maneuvers and quick attack runs in the planes, jump out, hit the sniper button and snag a few headshots on the way down. The M65 PRO RGB has the tools to make you an effective killer on the battlefield indeed.

While the M65 PRO RGB is geared toward the FPS arena we found the sniper button really useful in other environments. We play lots of games games that allow precise item placement, Skyrim, Fallout 4, or Besiege for instance. When playing games that give you the option to build things, place items, and create levels, you undoubtedly have spent hours trying to place your items perfectly on that shelf, or get that wall at just the right angle. We love displaying all of our unique items and relics in a custom built fortress. This is where the sniper button shines. You can ever so gently move your items around with precision and achieve the perfect position to scratch that OCD itch with just a click.

We paired the M65 PRO with the MM300 for testing. The PMW3360 sensor and overall feel of the M65 PRO is quite precise. We did not experience any odd behavior from a technical perspective such as jitter, jump, hang, or odd acceleration. Where the M65 design is curious is the grip. While to the touch the M65 PRO feels high quality in terms of material and implementation. To grip the M65 PRO is an interesting process. This mouse has lots of curves and open space and our hand really couldn’t decide how to hold it at first. The design seems to be applicable to many grip styles which is nice. Thing is the design also seems to make your grip want to try all of them at once, carefully weighing the pros and cons, even though you know the grip you like and are used to. Each grip style seems to put something out of feel, most commonly the Sniper button being either too far forward or backward. We feel the overall sizing and button placement on the M65 PRO needs just a slight amount of rework. We also acknowledge results of this nature are subjective in relation to one’s personal grip.  In all other aspects the M65 PRO is a top notch peripheral.

Conclusion

Having the M65 PRO RGB around the lab for an extended period, it has stood the test of time. Sometimes a device can be great out of the box, but with time show wear far to quickly or begin to show function anomalies out of nowhere. We haven’t experienced anything of that nature so far. We stand by our original assessment of the M65 PRO RGB. While having an odd feel at first, the M65 PRO remained consistently effective. This mouse has functionality, quality materials, style, great software, and last but not least it’s a great value. At this time we have seen the M65 PRO RGB at $50 USD from certain retailers. Do yourself a solid and give the M65 PRO RGB a serious look over and if possible a test drive, you are likely to enjoy the results. The Corsair M65 PRO RGB without a doubt maintains it’s Bjorn3D.com Seal of Approval.

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.
