Top Customer Reviews
Maybe you aren’t a Razer fanboy, and you don’t need that DeathAdder for your CS go awesomeness, instead, you want to try something different. Something that looks more cozy to you, and costs the same or less (depending on price trends). BUT you also don’t want to break the bank doing that! Well, we may have an answer for you here with Corsair Harpoon RGB. A great option, that isn’t that ugly, unfriendly Katar mouse.
The mouse has an overall quality feel, with a team that obviously (to me at least) designed it for FPS gaming, to compete alongside the namely competitors and their own respective affordable FPS style mice.
The Harpoon RGB finds itself under my humble, scrutinous blade of observation, and stares back with no fear. Corsair is confident in their products, and there is a good reason why. They are made for us, the consumer. Most of the time I never really have something bad to say (other than one PSU I reviewed by them that we will chalk up to fluke mistake on the factory it came from), rather I usually have thoughts along the lines of ‘interesting choice… I would have maybe done this differently.’ To cite the Scimitar Pro, I would have used an embedded gear for loosening the keypad vs providing a tiny specialized tool for the consumer to not lose.
Anyway let me stay on track! Corsair didn’t provide to the public what sensor they used for the Harpoon. They usually openly announce in some way what they used, or if it was an exclusive collaboration. It’s a safe bet it’s a newer PMW Pixart sensor, and it is likely a unique model exclusive to Corsair. There are a range of sensors that fit the bill of 6000 DPI so it is difficult to say just by feel. I can say I don’t believe it to be an ADNS model, as they are typically older designs and offer an unappealing red light not found here.
The optical 6000 DPI sensor is very comfortable, very smooth, and works great.
We do not have a braided cable, but we do have a thicker than usual comfortable and well insulated cable. Both left and right sides offer a comfortable rubbery grip and it fits the hand very well for me. The forward and back buttons on the left side of the mouse (thumb side) are mildly misplaced to me. While they are edged out (like a triangle) the button furthest back is uncomfortable to use. The button being slightly larger, or both buttons being positioned a bit more forward would be far more ideal to me.
The top of the mouse looks as if its coated in a rubbery matte style ABS coating but feels like sanded hard plastic. If that descriptor sounds unappealing I do not mean it to, its actually very nice feeling, but it looks like it may feel much differently in pictures than when you are actually using it. I just don’t want you to be surprised!
The scroll wheel keeps with a common Corsair design and is easy to use as anticipated with angled ridges and nice scroll and click. Just behind the scroll wheel is the one directional DPI switch. The specifications default 250DPI up to 6000DPI, but in true Corsair fashion you can jump in to the CUE (Corsair Utility Engine) and customize and set up all of your profiles. Once you have customized a cozy profile, you can save it to the onboard memory of the mouse.
Omron switches make the experience here. With 20 million click you can expect to own this mouse a long time if you so choose. I find they are very adequate. I was writing a difference comparison between switches and comparable feel of switches in different mice. My Logitech G303 (my on the go love of my life mouse) and my Zeus P1 (home editing mouse) have very different feels. Sometimes the 303 is so sensitive I’ll actuate accidently just resting my fingers on it. On the other side, the Zeus will fail to actuate as easily as I ‘think’ it should. When I picked up the Corsair Scimitar it was like God rays came down and was the absolute perfect balance between the switches. The Harpoon is the same way. It is my perfect comfort zone for depression to actuation.
There is 1 zone RGB lighting on the Harpoon, and you guessed it, the rear logo for Corsair. While it seems like less RGB lighting than you probably desire in your dance party life, it actually looks nice and using CUE, and LINK features in CUE, you can pretty much have it successfully style and look how you want with lighting effects. It was actually really neat, and sort of hard to explain… ‘How many cool lighting features can I have with just one point of light?’ Apparently, a lot. If the Harpoon offered an RGB scroll wheel as well, it would be the cherry on top for the price range (assuming it would maintain the price range).
Four smaller than desired Teflon feet on the bottom are adequate.
The elephant in the room a lot of people bring up is it is a light weight mouse. Well…yes it’s an FPS mouse catering to not you unique heavy mouse using FPS players. 85 Grams is a common weight range for a light weight FPS mouse (Citing Rival 100 @ 92 grams, Roccat Lua @ 70 grams and even the considerably heavy for FPS Razer DeathAdder Chroma @ 105 grams and Logitech Hyperion @ 108 grams. I think some people see the size and expect it to weigh well over 100g. For FPS gaming light weight, and lift off distance are important. For the price of the mouse there is a Goldilocks effect for me. It is just right. Kudos.
CUE offers full control over the mouse and what it can do. From polling rate, pointer speeds, lighting, assigning all six programmable buttons, profile creation and storage, so on and so on. It is a great GUI, but I still want to see some more user friendly changes. At the time of this review it is still a mid-screen gear icon to get to polling rates (as an example). Why is something like this not available on the left like everything else. Just put ‘Global Settings’ as a tab on the left with the rest.
I love seeing that Corsair offers a more budget oriented option that is a great tool for your desk battlefield. I especially like that it isn’t just a branded hunk of junk delivered to your desk. There are remarks to be made about the quality/price ratio. They could probably get away with a higher price for all that it is, and all that it can do, but instead, they simply don’t try to. I like seeing this. Make products for everyone. Design for all tiers of gamers, for all tiers of budgets, and keep surprising me. At one point, I would have written Corsair off as ‘cares too much about branding and money’ company. I don’t feel that way anymore. I look forward to seeing the future implementations of new and refreshed products.
The buttons feel sharp and the mouse feels good in my hand (average sized hands).
I am using this on a Windows 10 machine.
Be sure that you update the firmware of the mouse, as this was one of the first things that I did when getting the mouse. Drivers and software were not included in the packaging, however were easy to download and install from the Corsair website.
The software used to control the mouse is decent enough to do most things. The things that I could not get working, is a simple rapid-clicking. Macros (keystrokes) were easily recorded and edited and worked well.
Each of the resolutions of the mouse is easy to change and as you cycle thru them, the mouse LED color will change based on what mode you are in. Also the colors of each of the modes can be changed thru the mouse software, and they even will let you choose two colors per mode which pulses the colors back and forth. Did not appear that there is much variation for the brightness however.
I wish that they had an additional button on the mouse so that you can go forward and backward in the mouse resolution. Perhaps there is something I overlooked in the software that would bring you back to a default dpi, but it can be a pain to cycle thru 5 settings before getting back to the default (resolution as in how fast the mouse cursor moves, or how fast you look around in game). The slower settings work well when zoomed in for sniper type games.
So where this may not be the fanciest gaming mouse, it has been working and functioning well. I would put this mouse on par with my logitech gaming mouse, and has more features than a MX-518. I will continue to use this mouse and revise this review if anything changes!
The only ding I can think of with this isn't anything with the mouse itself, moreso with the (optional) software used to customize it: Corsair Utility Engine is fairly easy to navigate, but it's still kinda buggy (can't check for updates, for some reason), and, at least on my machine, introduces a very annoying lag upon startup/login that lasts for several seconds. That said, it's not enough to knock off a star, because it's not a problem with the mouse itself, just CUE. That said, however, it is still useful for tweaking your Corsair products, and I presume the buggy nature is due to the newness of CUE 2.
