The Glaive RGB is the latest high-end ergonomic mouse by Corsair. It comes with a custom sensor, three interchangeable thumb grips, and three individual lighting zones for customization. At $69.99, it is on the pricey side, but it also delivers solid quality. Let's look at the details and its performance in more depth.

Thanks for the review. I just have a couple of questions.

1. What do you meant by pre-travel for the buttons?
2. Would this suit claw grip pretty well?
3. Would this mouse attract dust like magnet?

is there any other company besides logitech that sells mice with the 'dual clutch' or hyper scroll wheel? I'm not sure if that is patented, but I have really grown to like this feature. Would be nice if there were more options out there b/c sometimes i want the fast scroll, but sometimes in games i like the click scroll.

1. What do you meant by pre-travel for the buttons?
I'm guessing it means there is a noticeable, albeit small, dead zone where the the main buttons go down for a while before actually clicking.

I have yet to see a Corsair mouse that doesn't look horrible. This one could have been decent but omg what's up with those side buttons? It's like they designed a pit there for all the crud in the world to gather. It's a really bad design, they recessed the buttons in that pit so that you have to lift your thumb up from the mouse every time you want to use them. So how you gonna press them while you move the mouse? I use the edge of my thumb to press the side buttons, while the middle of the thumb remains on the mouse so I can control it. With this mouse that is impossible. If you want to move the mouse to the right while pressing the button you gotta move the mouse with the button itself and that way you have 0 accuracy because you're pressing on a flexible spring to move an object. Another major fail from them, I dunno why people would even buy these ugly things they are making...

I feel the 3 shapes-in-one is a gimmick. You'd only configure it one way and leave it at that. I'm never against having options, but in this case the option comes with a hefty price tag. Maybe having 3 variants of the same mouse could have been cheaper?
