Looks like a hardcore device.

"There are some caveats, however. While the software is very capable, it's also a bit of a resource hog. For what it's worth, make sure to keep iCUE minimized to keep RAM usage under control. It's not really intuitive to navigate, either, and some functions (such as saving changes to onboard profiles) can appear convoluted at first. Although button quality is always subject to manufacturing variance, my sample at least had a side button that was of notably poor quality. Finally, for those who want to occasionally play an FPS with their MMO mouse, the Scimitar RGB Elite is less than ideal. The cable is very stiff, the weight high, and the wide body coupled with the side-button panel make it difficult to get a firm grip. It's a bit of a shame actually because both the sensor and click latency would make the Scimitar RGB Elite a great fit for FPS as well otherwise.

So all in all, while not perfect, the Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite is a very good MMO/MOBA mouse, and gets a Recommended from me. "

They stuck a telephone numberpad on a mouse? :LOL:
Guess you have never seen a Naga ? They have been around for years.

Logitech G600 isn't exactly new either.

I have been using Nagas for almost 15 years now... wouldn't imagine using anything else ever again. I did go with a G600 for about a 6 months but went back to a Naga when I happened to see one on sale. Naga is imo one of the best mice ever made. Its great for games... but its also great for productivity software. Assigning navigation shortcuts in programs like Blender photoshop and the like to the number pad is fantastic. Super precise mice with no shortage of buttons. They call them MMO mice for a reason in pretty much any MMO you can quickly activate 48 individual skills with ease. 12 skills on a tray... shift + key for tray 2... alt + and ctl +. They are a huge advantage in MMOs anyway.

I was tempted to try out a Corsair a little while back... and I might still when my latest Naga caffs. The key pad on the Corasair can slide forward and back... but after so many years the naga is second nature. Probably just get another.

I have one of these: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Gaming-Mice/SCIMITAR-RGB-Optical-MOBA-MMO-Gaming-Mouse/p/CH-9000091-NA
Very similar.

My .02

The buttons on the side look nice - in practice only 10 11 12 are functionally usable. Your thumb is just not going to easily get to the other buttons (and not hit multiple buttons) unless you have Marfan's Syndrome or some such.

The last few versions of Icue have been so unstable on my machine I have it uninstalled - pop-up error messages on shut down, random reboots (so bad I bought a new power supply thinking it was that till I uninstalled Icue) and other random crashes. All stopped at the uninstall.

Other then the side buttons largely being useless and the software sucking I do like the mouse and use it -- just wish I could use all the features I paid to have.

Ya icue is awful. Once I got it installed I was afraid to update.

The uninstaller didn't fully clear out temp files and it prevents service from starting after next install.
