When I first saw Corsair’s Scimitar mouse a couple of years ago, I thought it was the most bonkers-looking thing I’d ever seen. Just like its equally mad successor, the Scimitar Pro RGB I’ve got here, it had 12 mechanical buttons on the side. Twelve! This is a calculator, not a mouse, I thought to myself at the time. How could anyone possibly need 12 individual mouse buttons?
Of course, both the Scimitar and the Scimitar Pro RGB are often trailed by the words “MOBA” and MMO”, and I’m sure there’s a handful of such players who might find this kind of thing useful. Admittedly, neither genre is my particular forte, so I’m largely going to be looking at the Scimitar Pro RGB in the context of an ordinary gaming mouse. And just in case its four RGB lighting zones weren’t enough for you, I’ve also got Corsair’s MM800c RGB Polaris mouse mat here as well, which has – wait for it – FIFTEEN RGB lighting zones that can sync with the same theme on your Scimitar Pro for the ultimate desk-side rainbow show.
