Complementing our recent Raptor K40 review, Corsair have kindly provided us with a Raptor M45 gaming mouse to be put through its paces. The Raptor M45 (from here on M45) is an optical mouse at its core with the main gaming functions nailed down – namely back/forwards buttons, configurable DPI and also configurable weight – although being Corsair’s entry level mouse there isn’t cause for concern in terms of it being feature lacking. The inclusion of weights comes as somewhat of a surprise as the manufacturer that has tended to have the option at the lower end of the mouse market has been Tt eSports for the most part.
- Warranty: Two years
- DPI: ~5000
- Prog Buttons: 7
- Report Rate: 1000Hz
- On-board storage: Yes
The Corsair M45 is definitely going to favour the FPS crowd somewhat due to the lack of extensive buttons you’d find handy in an RTS or MMO, but that doesn’t mean it still won’t be suitable somewhat for MOBAs. New this week, or at least review, will also be some brief testing in Titanfall which offers a great FPS workout due to the frantic nature of the game even compared to Battlefield 4.
So, without further delay let’s get acquainted with the Corsair Raptor M45.
