Corsair M75 Wireless: Design and Build

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting the M75 Air, you’ll notice the family resemblance right away with the M75 Wireless. But this isn’t just a case of “like a parent, like a child” – think of it more as “like the cool older sibling who went off to college and came back with a bunch of cool new tricks.”

First off, this latest unit weighs 89 grams, which is a step up from the Air’s feathery 60 grams. This extra weight gives the mouse a more substantial, grounded feel, kind of like it’s always ready to spring into action but won’t fly off the desk if you sneeze. For those in the FPS crowd, this might sound like a deal-breaker, but it’s all about balance, and the M75 Wireless balances like a pro on a tightrope.

Let’s talk about colorful lights because everything’s better with a bit of RGB flair. The M75 Wireless sports two glowing RGB strips along its back, wrapping around a Corsair logo that also glows. It’s the kind of touch that makes the white model I’ve been testing not just a mouse, but a statement piece on my desk. And yes, for the tinkerers out there, you can customize this light show in two zones using Corsair’s iCue software.

Design-wise, this mouse is like that one friend who’s comfortable in any social situation. Its shape is a dream for palm or claw grippers, with a generously humped middle easing into more relaxed slopes towards the front and back. It’s slightly bigger, reminding me of the Razer Naga V2 Pro but without making your hand stretch uncomfortably for those crucial clicks.

At the bottom part of the mouse, you’ll find a couple of buttons for DPI adjustments and switching connections, alongside PTFE feet that glide smoother than a hot knife through butter. And yes, there’s a spot to tuck the USB-A dongle away because nobody likes to lose those tiny things. In a nutshell, the Corsair M75 Wireless looks good, feels good, and despite a minor fashion faux pas or two, it’s a solid companion.

Corsair M75 Wireless: Features

The big headline here is the ambidextrous design. That’s right, left-handers rejoice. You’re no longer left out of the high-end mouse game. The M75 Wireless doesn’t just pay lip service to ambidexterity; it fully embraces it with a set of side buttons on both flanks. Plus, Corsair throws in a set of swappable caps so you can customize the side buttons to your heart’s content, making it a real deal for southpaws and righties alike.

The centerpiece is its Marksman sensor, boasting a 26K DPI at 650 IPS. This means it’s sharp, accurate, and won’t miss a beat, even if you’re someone who likes to flick-shot your way through FPS games or meticulously plan every move in a strategy title. While some mice might offer greater numbers, the truth is that most of us won’t notice the difference unless we’re playing at a professional level. The M75 keeps up with the best of them, ensuring your cursor is always where you need it to be.

Now, onto the programmable buttons—or, should I say, the somewhat lacking array of them. In an age where more is often considered better, the M75 Wireless plays it a bit too safe for my liking. Sure, you’ve got the basics covered, but in a world where gaming mice are bristling with buttons like a medieval knight in armor, the M75 feels a little…underdressed. A sniper button or a DPI shifter built into the main body would’ve been available adding that extra layer of versatility for the cost.

One of my personal favorites is the on-the-fly DPI shifting. Forget about diving into software settings mid-game. With the M75, a simple hold of the DPI button and a press of the side buttons lets you change your mouse sensitivity without missing a beat. It’s a gear shift for your mouse, allowing you to adapt on the fly whether you’re lining up a sniper shot or going through a chaotic battlefield.

Regarding the battery life, Corsair claims up to 105 hours, and while your mileage may vary depending on how much you love your RGB light shows, even with the lights on, I found myself going days without needing a charge. It’s the kind of endurance that makes you wonder whether the mouse has secretly tapped into some infinite energy source. So, while the M75 Wireless might not have a button for every function under the sun, it offers a thoughtful selection of features that are crafted for a wide range of gamers.

Corsair M75 Wireless: Performance

The M75 Wireless is definitely worth a look regarding its performance.

The M75 Wireless, with its slightly heftier design and refined ergonomics, feels like it was born to thrive in the vast landscapes of action-adventure games. But what about the high-octane world of first-person shooters or the strategic depths of MOBAs? Despite its weightier presence, the M75 Wireless doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Yes, the extra grams make it a tad less nimble than its ultralight cousins, but it’s no slouch. The precision and responsiveness of that Marksman sensor ensure that whether you’re making split-second decisions in Call of Duty or lining up the perfect shot in CS:GO, the M75 is up to the task.

Speaking of precision, the glide on this mouse is something to write home about. Thanks to those PTFE feet, it moves across surfaces with the grace of a figure skater, making even the smallest adjustments effortless. Combine that with the larger form factor, and you’ve got a mouse that hits the perfect spot between speed and control.

Furthermore, the M75 Wireless comes with Quickstrike switches that are, in a word, satisfying. There’s a certain joy in hearing that crisp click sound as you execute commands, and this Corsair gaming mouse delivers that in spades. Each click is fast, responsive, and, most importantly, feels consistent. Whether you’re spamming clicks in a heated battle or carefully selecting units in a strategy game, the M75 has tactile feedback that feels good.

So, where does that leave us? The Corsair M75 Wireless might carry a bit more weight and have a few less buttons than some would like, but it more than makes up for it in the performance department. Its sensor accuracy, comfortable design, and quality build make it a formidable companion for a wide range of gaming adventures. Sure, if you’re solely into FPS games or need a mouse that doubles as a mini keyboard for MMOs, there might be better-suited options out there. But for everyone else looking for a reliable, versatile gaming mouse that feels great to use, the M75 Wireless is worth a look.

Final Verdict

If you’ve already used the M75 Air, you might be wondering if it’s worth making the switch to the Wireless version. Here’s the deal: if you’re looking for that ultralight life and your gaming strategy leans heavily towards fast-paced FPS games, the Air might still be your best bet. But if you’re looking for a mouse that seems more substantial in your hand and offers those sweet, sweet RGB lights plus ambidextrous support, the M75 Wireless is calling your name. It’s not a revolutionary step up, but it’s like upgrading from a perfectly good gear to the latest model—you might not need it, but it sure is nice to have.

Alternatively, if you want a mouse with quicker response, Razer’s Viper Ultimate might edge out the Corsair products. Both are great, but one is built for speed while the other offers a bit more comfort and style. The Viper Ultimate is lighter and comes with a wireless charging cradle, making it a solid pick for those who value agility above all else. However, it’s also a more pricier, so you’re paying a premium for that performance boost.

In the grand scheme of things, choosing the right mouse comes down to what feels right in your hand and matches your gaming style. The M75 Wireless is a jack-of-all-trades, offering a comfortable grip, solid performance, and enough RGB to keep your setup looking sharp. It is like that reliable friend who might not always steal the spotlight but is always there when you need them. It might not be the ultimate choice for hardcore FPS fans or MMO gamers who need more buttons than a spaceship control panel, but for everyone else, it’s a contender worth considering.
