Corsair’s M55 Is Ambidextrous

Corsair’s M55 RGB Pro gaming mouse has an unique optical sensor, developed by PixArt specifically for some Corsair mice.  The PAW3327 sensor is rated at 200-12400 DPI, but isn’t just a rebranded PMW3325 as it sucks up about twice the power of other mice, at 3.0-3.6V.  That increase is reflected in the higher tracking speed and sensor resolution, and as Kitguru discovered also significantly increases the height above a surface at which the sensor can still track.  

As you would expect, the M55 features iCUE RGB features controllable in the driver, which also has a left handed mode as the mouse is symmetrically designed.  You should also check out Jim’s review if you haven’t yet.


Today, Corsair has unveiled something entirely new, the M55 RGB Pro. It sports an ambidextrous design, PixArt PAW3327 sensor, and is quite lightweight at 86g. With an MSRP of £44.99, is Corsair onto a winner?
