5 out of 5 eggsPretty neat

Pros: Buttons !

Cons: A bit hard to configure ,

Other Thoughts: For someone who never had a mouse with configurable button/macro. It will be hard to understand how to make it work with every game.

Suggestion is to save the profile on the mice intregrated memory and link the profile to the game you will use it with. (if the game was already launched , close it and re-launch)

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing firmware in what could be a good product

Pros: Lots of well-placed buttons, solid construction, nice weight (opinions vary), good feel in hand, onboard memory profiles so you can move the mouse to other PCs and start using it immediately, capable (if a little obtuse) software, accurate tracking even on the semi-shiny surface of my computer desk, glides smoothly across the desk compared to other gaming mice, cord sheathing is braided for durability and low friction

Cons: I wish this mouse was as good as the M90 it replaced, at least in terms of its firmware. On paper, it looks better, with its higher max resolution and its lighter-touch buttons (the M90 side buttons required a firm press)... but the thing about the M90 that I liked the most was that it worked properly out of the box.

Now, a year or so after the M95 came out, its newest firmware is still not release-ready. Come on, Corsair.

This mouse is sold as a MMO mouse. Most modern MMOs have the feature that pressing both of the main mouse buttons at the same time makes your character move, and mouse movements steer.

No problem so far. But in a MMO, you typically are doing more than simply moving and steering-- you're attacking, healing, using all kinds of abilities and items. Naturally, the purpose of a MMO mouse like this one is to have lots of thumb buttons that one might assign to perform these abilities. You would want to be able to do them while moving, too.

That's the problem. If you use the mouse in its hardware mode, which is the way I always used my M90, pressing a thumb button to trigger a macro falsely tells the computer that you have lifted off of both of the main mouse buttons, even while they are still pressed. This means that in a MMO, your character stops dead even while you are still telling it to go every time you use one of your main abilities (which are the ones you would want to assign to the mouse buttons). It makes the hardware mode completely unusable.

So hardware mode is out if you use the mouse as I do. If you are willing to give up the benefits of hardware playback (greater compatibility with some games, ability to move the mouse to other computers and use your button assignments instantly, having the onboard LEDs indicating which profile you are using), there is always software mode, right?

Sure. And in software mode, macros don't send incorrect button-up events when the buttons are still down. That problem is solved, only to reveal another one.

When you use standby (sleep) or hibernate modes, resuming from standby has the added function of making the mouse revert to hardware playback mode, even while the "use hardware playback" checkbox in the Corsair mouse settings program is still unchecked!

When this happens, you can change the mouse settings all you want in the Corsair settings, and none of it works (because the mouse is using its onboard profiles without telling you). It could drive someone nuts if they didn't know what was going on! In order to make it work properly, you have to check the hardware playback box and then uncheck it. It will then work fine until you use standby again.

You will have to do this every time the mouse resumes from standby if you want to use software playback. It will be like this until Corsair fixes the firmware-- and given that the thing has been on the market a year like this, it seems like it may be a while.

Other Thoughts: I thought it may be my computer at fault with the issues above. My usual gaming PC is an i5 system with Windows 7 x64... so I tried it on my ancient Core 2 Duo Windows XP laptop too. It did the same thing.

So maybe this particular mouse is defective, and a new one would be better? That's what Corsair tech support told me. They offered to set up a RMA, but I opted to go back to the place of purchase and exchange it.

I still suspected, though, that this was a firmware bug, in which case ALL M95s with the same (latest version as I write) firmware will have the same issues. So I went to the retailer, explained the situation, and they agreed to let me see if another M95 right off the shelf would be any better. I had brought the old XP laptop for that purpose, and I connected the mouse and tested it.

It did the same thing as my M95. No sense in exchanging it.

I didn't get a refund for the mouse, though. Even with these firmware bugs, its still the closest thing to my M90 (before it started having tracking issues a year and several months after I bought it) that is still readily available. I've gotten very used to using the M90; I have all kinds of "muscle" memory with it. I can still use the M95, even if I do have to fool around with the software each time, and I still do hope that Corsair will fix the issue (hence the 3 egg rating despite a mostly negative review.)

2 out of 5 eggsLove the mouse...until the wheel lost it's mind

Pros: Customizable buttons, placed well with a good weight. Decent enough software, though a little less than intuitive

Cons: After about a year (I think, might be less, I don't have the paperwork any more) my wheel has lost it's mind. It scrolls randomly when used and occasionally will scroll even when not touched.

2 out of 5 eggsDouble think about Vengeance

Pros: Due to my hand size being rather small I felt that all the buttons were in almost perfect locations for me. The Corsair Gaming Software that you need is very easy to use, and it is easy to program all the buttons. The fact that you are able to adjust how high or how low the most needs to be from a surface for the laser to detect is really awesome as well. The DPI and profile change are easy to setup and use.

Cons: I ended up taking my friend's which he thought was dead, but was only an issue with the sensor high by default being set really low. The mouse worked amazingly for me for about 1 - 2 months, but after a when my computer restarts, or boots up the USB isn't recognized by the computer due to lack of connection. About 4 or 5 months after my friend got his, his completely died. The computer didn't even realize something was plugged in. About 8 to 9 months after I had mine (about 8.5 - 9.5 months since it was bought) mine died the same way. The USB connection on this mouse is poorly made, and I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this mouse when they could get another one that is better with more programmable buttons.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Mouse fits my hand pretty comfortably.
aesthetically pleasing
very well built

Cons: some of the buttons are hard for me to reach, but I think i may just need to get more used to this mouse.

Other Thoughts: The software take about 10 mins to figure out, but its pretty easy after that, just take a look at the manual.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For the person below me.

2-3lbs?? Really? haha

Try 6.5oz's

Cons: Corsair made a good mouse here, but their software for it is laughable at best.

1 egg off for that.

3 out of 5 eggsWhy it is so heavy?

Pros: - Good looking.
- Quality build.
- Flatter, smoother scroll wheel.
- Smarter, more ergonomic placement of thumb buttons.
- Fairly intuitive but useful software.

Cons: - Really, really heavy.
- Sandpaper texture on right/pinky finger side.

Other Thoughts: Long time owner of the Original Razer Naga. I don’t play MMO’s or RTS’s, but I like the extra buttons. I map them to macros and my Steam screenshot key for those awesome moments. Recently, the upper two left buttons was failing on my Naga. I map these two buttons to Page Up/Down for web browsing. It’s really convenient so I’ve been looking for a mouse with those two programmable buttons.

That’s where the M95 comes in. Later Naga versions got rid of it. I still love my Original Razer Naga. I have smaller hands, and like its smaller shape. I mainly claw grip and like its curvy, ergonomic design. I thought the M95 would replace it, but the more I use it, the more I wanna go back to my Naga.

My biggest issue with the M95 is how heavy it is. My Naga weighs nothing compared to it. To some people, heavy means quality. But its sheer weight makes it uncomfortable to move around. I can’t find its official weight specs, but it honestly feels between 2-3 lbs. I think most of the weight comes from its aluminum under body. It looks nice, but that’s it. I don't understand why Corsair thought making it so heavy was a good idea.

The right side has this sandpaper texture I really hate. I get that it’s there for better grip, but the way it feels is a big turn off. There’s no ring/pinky rest like there is on the Naga.

But there are a lot of things I like about it. Some better than the Naga. I love the [flat, smoother scroll wheel. The thumb buttons are placed much, much better than the keypad layout of the Naga. It has a nice matte texture, and it’s a really good looking mouse.

I wouldn’t recommend this mouse mainly due to its sheer weight. I swear if it were lighter I’d probably love it.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Mouse

Pros: Love the look. Feels perfect in my hand, I am a finger tip/claw gripper and it feels nice. Great control, smooth, feels of solid build quality, I love the weight (though may be heavy for some), and I love the DPI range.

Cons: Software is not as intuitive as you would like, but once you get used to it, it is not that bad. I will not dock an egg for the software but it can be justified, I was able to grasp it so for me it is not much of a hindrance.

Other Thoughts: A mouse is like a car, it is not one size fits all. If you have a chance to someone test a few mice out prior to purchasing it makes a world of a difference. it does have a sniper button for anyone who is curious. You can bind this to other side keys as well to your desire. I replaced my old Deathadder and wanted more buttons and this one has not disappointed yet.
