Corsair is one of the biggest names in the business when it comes to computer components, with a range that includes many award-winning products such as their SSDs, RAM, Chassis, Keyboards, Mice and more. There is no doubt that Corsair have a strong following in the gaming community thanks in no small part to some of their high performance gaming peripherals, but there is certainly much more to the company that just gaming, with a strong history of producing reliable products since they company formed back in 1994.
“Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.”
In the last 20 years Corsair has gone from strength to strength and right now they have one of the strongest product lineups of any brand on the market, and I’m hoping quite a bit that the M65 gaming mouse I’m looking at today not only lives up to my standards as a gamer, but also as a fan of some previous Corsair products.
Gaming is big business and when you start to get to the standards of a performance gaming mouse, which in most cases cost £50 and beyond, your starting to get pretty serious about it. The M65 is prices at a fraction under £50 at most popular retailers and for a gaming mouse that’s pretty good value, so long as the performance is up to scratch of course. Yet £50 is still a fair bit of money to a lot of people (myself included) and once you start paying that for a product like a gaming mouse your going to want to see a good amount of performance, build quality and overall reliability for your money, all of which I will be looking for today.
