About the Product
No matter whether you are right-handed or left-handed, FK Series comes in three different sizes. They are designed for your comfort. The low profile shape provides enhanced control for both claw and palm-grip users.
The Corsair Gaming Sabre RGB is a light weight performance gaming mouse with four-zone 16.8M color backlighting. If you like playing at lower DPIs and taking advantage of a larger mouse mat, you'll be able to react quicker.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ ZOWIE FK2 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • The FK2's scroll wheel has the perfect amount of resistance, making it comfortable to use.
  • Clicks are very nice and subtle. Tracking is spot on.
  • All buttons feel nice and responsive, you have an option to change the DPI, lift of distance and refresh rate of the mouse.
  • The FK2 is perfect for my hands, it's super light and the sensor response is amazing.
  • The buttons are harder than on most other gaming mice.
Corsair Sabre Optical Gaming Mouse
  • Having the ability to change the DPI on the fly is a must have and the whole sensor works great.
  • No issues with any of buttons, correct amount of pre/post travel.
  • Flat side buttons always a big plus for me, good scroll wheel with well defined steps.
  • Top end sensor 3389, that feels responsive and snappy.
  • Nice buttons but the wheel is dying after few month of using.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
BenQ ZOWIE FK2 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • Ambidextrous, low profile shape, suitable for claw and fingertip grip.
  • Combined with the mice's low weight, the skates make it glide extremely well.
  • The simple/comfortable shape and the relatively low weight can make it a good choice for those who want to switch to a serious gaming mouse.
  • For clawing it is perfect size, palming is possible but little uncomfortable.
  • I do wish that this mouse was a little bigger and then it would be perfect.
Corsair Sabre Optical Gaming Mouse
  • The weight of the mouse is about right for me and the hand position is also nice now that I have got used to it.
  • Suitable weight and good shape for most users make this mouse best I've ever seen.
  • Nice shape and size that even small hands can grip comfortably.
  • That wasn't even lightweight when it was first released, it's more or less a brick now.
  • The mouse advertised as lightweight but is doesn't as there is much more lightweight on the market.

What customers say about "Connection"
BenQ ZOWIE FK2 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • Good non braided, quite flexible cable and slides well.
  • The cable is flexible enough so that the mouse feels wireless when used with a mouse bungee.
  • Cabling is great quality such that there is no tangling.
  • FK2 using unbraided cable which is good and doesn't have annoying scroll wheel led like some other zowie mice.
  • Non braided cable is super light and flexible, so I don't feel this is wired mouse.
Corsair Sabre Optical Gaming Mouse
  • It does seem like corsair made an effort to make the braid quite tight, so for such a cable it's on the flexible side.
  • Cable is reinforced so it will not break very easily.
  • Comfy to use in a palm or claw grip and has a nice long and braided cable. Well built.
  • The mouse sometimes disconnects, especially after rebooting the PC.
  • I don't like that mouse using braided cable as this is not good for flexibility.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ ZOWIE FK2 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • No software is needed, which is ideal for LAN environments.
  • No drivers needed and comes without specialised software. I like this simplicity.
  • The surface is polished/shiny compared to regular matte cheap office mice.
  • I love the "plug'n'play" feature of the mouse as they don't bother with downloadable software.
  • The plastic used feels neither particularly premium nor cheap, but isn't commensurate with the price of the mouse.
Corsair Sabre Optical Gaming Mouse
  • Adjustable DPI and a programmable macro buttons with the added bonus of RGB.
  • Fully programmable buttons + RGB lightning with easy to use software.
  • Mouse feels great, I guess the plastic is high quality.
  • Great customisable RGB LED profile, or you can turn them off through software if you like.
  • A simpler more intuitive software would benefit everyone.
