Corsair’s Sabre RGB Pro Wireless packs an impressive sensor and up to 2,000 Hz polling into a comfortable shell that costs $20 less than Razer’s competing DeathAdder V2 Pro. There’s a lot to like, including the 79g weight, but my sweaty fingers would prefer textured or rubber side grips.
Earlier this year, we took a close look at the tethered version of the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro, which stood out mostly for its kind-of-crazy (though not unprecedented) 8,000 Hz polling rate, far faster than the typical 1,000 Hz. Now, the company has cut the cord with the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Wireless. You won’t find a polling rate quite so high on the wireless model, but at up to 2,000 Hz, it’s still technically twice as responsive as most mice. And its 26,000 DPI optical sensor is impressive for a wireless rodent — even if it’s also likely overkill for most gamers. At 79g , it’s a bit lighter than the competing Razer DeathAdder v2 Pro Wireless while costing less — though it’s still expensive at an MSRP of $109.99.
Whether or not it’s the best gaming mouse or the best wireless mouse remains to be seen. I like the understated design and, just like the wired model, the Sabre RGB Pro Wireless feels great in my hand. But considering the $100-plus price, I would like to see some rubber or at least textured plastic sides for better grip during tense, sweaty battles.
