Second, as other users have pointed out, the mouse scroll wheel. The mouse certainly feels of high quality when you use it, takes some getting used to but a lot of mice do. The lighting is nice and I like the design, the side buttons are a bit obtrusive but other than that no issues there. The main issue is the mouse scroll wheel. If you never ever use your mouse scroll wheel to do anything other than VERY LIGHTLY scrolling up and down, it will break. I tore the mouse apart to find the issue and the interior working are INCREDIBLY cheap for the price they're asking PLUS the legwork you have to do to even get the mouse functioning.
Considering the "Pro" name and price point of this, to be quite frank, shoddily constructed mouse, I would border on calling this a scam. Look elsewhere

The scroll wheel is one solid piece of plastic, with the bar/pin being a solid piece to the wheel. The cog with the teeth on the left side or the mechanism that actually does the scrolling is separate. OK. So the gear has a hole that is hexagonal for the wheel pin to sit in to work, but the end of the pin had broken off... after removing the piece that had broken off I really laughed. It was probably no bigger than 1mm in size and upon trying to fit the 2 back together to see if it was worth trying to super glue, I noticed that from the pin to where the notched piece was attached to fit into the gear, the pin went from thick to narrow and then back to the notched piece being thick...designed to fail?
The buttons had a specific ... mushy... feeling to them despite being mechanical switches, and the other major issue with the buttons was that despite where you might slide the side button panel, the keys sat far too low in the chassis, causing my thumb to rub up against the mouse mat whenever I would attempt to use 1,4,7, or 10 buttons on the mouse. Not a huge issue, but a minor annoyance. The third problem was easily fixable - and it was the CUE software. A beautifully designed piece of software, that was just unfortunately not intuitive to use, and buggy as all get out...
I am happy to say TWO of those major issues have not only been resolved entirely, but improved greatly.
The new Corsair Scimitar Pro packs Corsair's own iteration of the popular PMW-3360 sensor, which they have called the PMW-3367. Lift off distance issues have been entirely resolved, as well as much better performance on a variety of surfaces. I tested the Corsair Scimitar Pro on a QCK+ Heavy, Zowie GSR, PureTrak Talent, MMX300, and a GLORIOUS XXXL, and it performed great on all the surfaces - all which have very different material.
The other major issue is CUE, I am happy to say it has definitely improved in both usability, and function - while they still have kinks to work out - they are making headway into creating a great software suite. Not much else to say on that front. Some features I would add include the ability to reset surface calibration, as at present - you are not able to.
The clicks, the left and right, feel springy and have good tension. Not quite Logitech G303 / G900 / G Pro clicks - but definitely up there in quality. Side panel buttons are better - not quite where I'd like them to be in terms of feedback, but definitely getting better. I can't quite tell but I feel like they've been slightly more spaced apart to be more easily "findable" on the fly. These could still benefit from being raised up slightly, as they still sit a little low for my comfort, but again - this is a minor personal opinion.
The shell material itself has changed as well... less rubbery, and more plastic, but I think this was done to address durability concerns, as the rubbery coating on my old Scimitar despite only being purchased in November has already begun to wear - I forsee the Pro's coating to be much better in terms of wear and tear.
The weight is a little on the high side for FPS / MOBA players, but it is certainly not excessive. with a bit of cable coming in at 118 grams for me. I prefer my mice under 100 grams, however in this case - this mouse is specifically for MMO use for me - I have other mice for FPS / General Use - so if you're an mmo player looking for a top-quality sensor mouse that can be used in FPS or other games that won't put you at any sort of disadvantage, I can highly recommend this mouse.
Some odd design choices for me include the strip of brushed aluminium at the bottom of the mouse that houses the sensor - while it looks nice and gives a premium feel - the aluminium provides a jumping off point for fibers to get caught on cloth pads. I have not seen this happen with the Pro iteration yet - but it most certainly did on the old Scimitar.
To be clear, there are things Corsair could still do to bring this mouse up to another level - shaving some weight and raising the buttons up a bit would improve ergonomics greatly, without much change to the design - but overall we are looking at an iterative change that brings a lot to the table. It is most certainly an evolution of the design, and brings great performance to the table at a good price.
All in all - I'd say if you're in the market for an MMO mouse that can be more than that - grab a Corsair Scimitar Pro. You won't be disappointed in your purchase.
The CUE software is a raging dumpster fire. The software is pretty klunky, and was clearly designed by people who are utterly clueless when it comes to software design and tool implementation. One example that bears this out:
You can't do obvious, simple tasks such as copying a presets or parts of presets to other profiles. You can build a library of common functions, but the fact you can't really do anything else (like, if you have Corsair headphones...you can't copy EQ presets, or if you own a Corsair KB, making use of things you've done with other profiles in new ones is obtuse, and really difficult as you have to recreate it for every profile)
The CUE software is also horribly, horribly documented. You have one real choice: trawl and search through the corsair forums. Considering the prices for Corsair products....the lack of documentation is pretty staggering.
I own this mouse, a K70 and Void headphones. These are all solid products, great in fact! But the software, the software is awful. So awful, that if I saw "Corsair CUE" on a resume for a developer job...I would completely blackball that developer. Not just for my company, but for anyone else I spoke to. This is how bad CUE is. The people developing this garbageware should not be working in software development.
Many people are claiming the set up is hard, it’s not. The issue is that the numbers are not bound when you buy the mouse. All you have to do is download the CUE software and bind the keys to whatever you want. In my case, I rebound the keys to 1-9 and -, =. It took all of 3 mins and it was done. YouTube is a heck of a resource!
I would definitely recommend this mouse to anyone. I love it!
Cons: The scroll wheel abruptly failed to operate 14 months after I first started using it. And DANG! Right in the middle of a battle!!
Is this mouse only good for a years use more or less? I like Corsair products and have many of them on this build. BUT a mouse?! failing? This is one of their best mice?!
