Good ergo, bad software

Additional Comments

I bought that mouse about a year ago and that was definitely 1/5 because of the terrible software issues. After half a dozen patches Corsair has improved a bit but it's still not a 100% reliable tool. It freezes, lowers its settings by itself... Quickest fix is to unplug/plug the connection dongle but that sucks. Overall the ergos are god, and the button feel fresh after about a year of heavy use. I won't buy again a corsair mouse tho, and I will go back with SteelSeries or Logitech.

Strengths of the product

The mouse has alot of options for customization however the programming to get to the customization would not work properly. Being able to charge it wirelessly on its chargeable pad is nice.

Weaknesses of the product

This mouse just does not work. Right from the box it started having issues. Mainly it will be working for a day or two fine then the next day all the lights are off and it will not turn back on. I have left it on its charger as well and wired it to the computer with no results. Absolutely hate this mouse after 2 weeks of use. I never know when its going to work or not.

Additional Comments

Do not buy this mouse. Corsair has put out a terrible product that obviously has programming flaws.

I wouldn't buy.

Strengths of the product

As stated before

Weaknesses of the product

I have to restart the software 50% of the time and the other 50 I have to restart the mouse. The issue with the mouse sensitivity is not the windows setting and is without a doubt the software or hardware from corsair dropping the settings. The mouse will have a lower sensitivity than what is actually set. Shutting down the corsair software returns the mouse sensitivity to a higher level and with corsair software or mouse power cycle the sensitivity is returned. Wireless charging does not work approx 80% of the time. Come back after overnight charge and the mouse is warm from charging but the mouse has critical battery level still.

Additional Comments

This mouse has been a disappointment for the stated reasons. It's a disappointment as I like the overall design of the mouse and control it offers. The frustration level dealing with it however outweighs the experience. I would not recommend this mouse.

It's nice but....

Strengths of the product

It's precise. You can optimize the DPI to exactly what your preference may be. RGB is not gaudy. Battery life is strong enough for a day with lights. Taking some getting used to get the button positions memorized. Have to look at the mouse on occasion and have to release my grip to reach the back button. It feels like there is zero lag which was becoming annoying on my last mouse.

Weaknesses of the product

Battery life is only one day. Some concern over that as the battery gets older. The really bad is the software from what I can tell. Computer has been set to not go into sleep or hibernation mode. Only the screen shuts down after 15 min. Upon return to the computer the dpi is messed up and on occasion the lighting as well. Sometimes shutting the mouse off by the switch underneath works to reset everything sometimes the iCue software needs to be exited and restarted to get everything back to how it's set. To be fair this could be a Windows® 10 mouse sensitivity control or it could be the iCue software.
Side note: the iCue software sometimes interacts poorly with Asus's Aura software requiring a restart of the software.

Additional Comments

Came from a Logitech Performance MX and I do consider it an upgrade. Unfortunately the iCue software is getting pretty frustrating. Grip is comfortable for averaged sized hands as well as the weight. Love the wireless charging. The charging area on the MM1000 Qi is smaller than the average Qi charger in my opinion, but is still usable.
