The Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite is Corsair’s remake of their classic Scimitar Mouse with the new one offering RGB and some other features and when Corsair reached out to see if I wanted to check it out I agreed.

So thanks to Corsair for sending this out for review!

What’s in the Box?

The box that the Scimitar RGB Elite comes in takes after most other Corsair boxes with the yellow styling.

Included in the box of the Scimitar RGB Elite is the mouse itself, an allen key, and some documentation.

Design and Features

The design of the Scimitar RGB Elite is almost identical looking to the original Scimitar. It has twelve programmable buttons on the left side with RGB illumination. The whole mouse has RGB lit areas that are controllable via the iCUE software.

Behind the scroll wheel are two buttons that are programmable, I had mine to change the Colour and DPI profile depending on the game I was playing.

On the base of the mouse is the screw that the included allen key goes into, loosening this allows you to move all the buttons on the side to a comfortable position for you. This is an awesome thing to see and lets you have the mouse the way you like it.

The whole mouse is quite well designed and comfortable, the grip on the right side helps keep your hand on the mouse in those intense gaming sessions.
