Corsair Ironclaw RGB Wireless review: Heavy-handed

Corsair have produced some fantastic gaming mice this year. The Ironclaw RGB went straight into my [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] list when I looked at it back in March, as did the Harpoon RGB Wireless when I tested it in May. Therefore, it surely follows that a wireless version of the Ironclaw RGB, which uses the same Corsair Slipstream technology as the Harpoon Wireless,…

Razer Viper review: An ultra light ambidextrous gaming mouse

There have been quite a few new entries in my best gaming mouse list recently, from Corsair's Ironclaw RGB and Harpoon RGB Wireless to Roccat's Kain 120, but almost all of them have been designed with right-handed PC peeps in mind. Finally, however, we might have a new best gaming mouse contender for the lefties among you in the form of the new Razer Viper.…

Corsair M55 RGB Pro review: Not my new favourite gaming mouse

After the [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"]-grade delights of Roccat's Kain 120 earlier this week, Corsair's new ambidextrous M55 RGB Pro had a pretty tough job on its hands. Sure, the Corsair's more appealing for the lefties out there, but boy do I miss the soft, smooth texture of Roccat's Kain. Instead, the M55 RGB Pro has a hard, almost rough plastic finish outside of…

Roccat Kain 120 review: My new favourite gaming mouse

There are few gaming mice in this world that make me go, "Ooooooh," as soon as lay my hands on them, but the new Roccat Kain is one of them. Or at least the Roccat Kain 120 does, because technically there are going to be three versions of the Kain launching this September: the entry-level Kain 100, which costs £45 / $50 and has a…

Asus TUF Gaming M5 review: Small but mighty?

I was a big fan of Asus' TUF Gaming K5 mech-brane keyboard when I looked at it last month, so today I thought I'd turn my attention to its equally TUF mouse companion, the Asus TUF Gaming M5, and see if it's [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] material. See what they did there? Coated in the same durable TUF stuff that makes it more resistant…

Corsair M65 RGB Elite review: Taking the weight off

Finding a good gaming mouse can sometimes feel like you're stuck in the story of Goldilocks. You don't want one that's too heavy, nor do you want one that's too light. Instead, you want one that feels just right under your palm. Or you could just buy a weighted one such as Corsair's new M65 RGB Elite and make your own mind up as you…

Corsair Harpoon RGB Wireless review: An incredible wireless gaming mouse for just £50 / $50

When Corsair announced their new Harpoon RGB Wireless gaming mouse would cost just £49 / $50 back in January earlier this year, I thought there must be some kind of catch. A wireless gaming mouse for a mere $50? You must be having a laugh. Now, I know I haven't reviewed that many wireless gaming mice so far, but the two I have looked at,…

Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye review: Small yet mighty

Roccat may be about to be subsumed into the peripherals giant that is Turtle Beach, but for the time being their own gaming accessories are still very much alive and well, including their Kone Pure Owl-Eye gaming mouse, seen here in its recently refreshed white edition. I must say, this little tiddler is quite the sea change after the altogether heftier waistline of the Corsair…

Corsair Ironclaw RGB review: Comfort, speed and style

It's not often you see a gaming mouse tout itself as both MOBA and FPS material, but the new Corsair Ironclaw RGB is one such genre-crossing clicker that hopes to combine the lightweight precision of so-called FPS mice with the overall long-term comfort of their MOBA-based cousins. And man alive does it succeed.

Mad Catz RAT Pro S3 review: The rat is back

There is simply no mistaking a Mad Catz gaming mouse. Just like their wacky console box controllers that were once the sole purview of younger brothers and sisters the world over before they went bankrupt in March 2017, you only need to take one look at their newly resurrected RAT series, such as the Pro S3 here, to realise that, yep, this is definitely a…

CES 2019: Corsair are bringing their new Slipstream tech to the masses with the $50 Harpoon RGB Wireless mouse

Not content with rewriteing the rulebook on RGB lighting with their new Capellix tech at this year's CES, rainbow gaming specialists Corsair also announced a new wireless technology today that will form the foundation of all of their wireless gaming peripherals going forward. Dubbed Slipstream, it's twice as fast as their previous generation of wireless tech, has a massive range of up to 65ft, supports…

Mad Catz unveil new series of RAT gaming mice to mark their return to PC peripherals

Mad Catz, the bankrupted-but-recently-resurrected maker of PC peripherals and console controllers for younger brothers and sisters, have announced their return to the world stage of PC hardware with the arrival of not one, but four new gaming mice, and they're all giant, hand-hogging RATs. Sorry, one sec, I just got a whiff of something awful. It smells like... cheesy feet? No, it can't be. Must…

HP Omen Reactor review: A great gaming mouse let down by its software

As all PC gaming cat owners know, mice cables somehow possess the same tasty properties as the tails and innards of their real life counterparts. I don't know what it is that's so mouth-wateringly delicious about long, thin wires, but man alive did my cats like chewing them when they were little. Thankfully, they've largely grown out of their cable-munching phase (if only because they…

Logitech G Pro Wireless review: The best wireless gaming mouse ever made

One of the biggest complaints often levied at wireless gaming mice is that they're simply too slow and heavy compared to their wired rivals. Despite being free of snagging cables that somehow manage to get in the way of everything at all times, that liberty often comes at the cost of latency and reliability, with the extra disadvantage that they've now got to carry a…

MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Logitech G502 Hero review: Faster, stronger, but it is better?

As you might have guessed from the name, the Logitech G502 Hero is a slightly fancier version of Logitech's classic £50 / $50 G502 gaming mouse. For an extra £30 / $30, you can bag yourself a 16000 DPI sensor as opposed to a 12000 one, left and right clickers with a 50 million click endurance rating rather than 20 million, and an additional two…

Razer Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux review: How much?

It's been quite a while since we've had a wireless mouse in for review at Castle Shotgun, and for that I apologise. To rectify the situation, I've got Razer's Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux combo in today, which is absolutely 100% the name of a mouse and mouse mat and definitely not a binned subtitle for Kingdom Hearts 3. The main attraction here is Razer's aforementioned…

Steelseries Rival 310 review: The best gaming mouse under £50

These days, it seems like any half-decent gaming mouse requires at least fifty of your fine British pounds or sixty of your finest American dollars. That's still a lot more than I'm willing to fork out in most cases, but sometimes, I admit, it can be worth the extra expense - such as the Asus ROG Gladius II (£68 / $80) and its handy, dedicated…
