With a sharp, angular style, three RGB lighting zones, ten programmable buttons, and slick wireless connectivity the Corsair Ironclaw RGB is a versatile gaming mouse. It boasts an attractive design with excellent build quality. It’s big and tall with a pronounced peak, textured grip on the sides, and it’s a right-handed mouse. It will suit palm grips best, though fingertip or claw grips are possible for those with larger hands. At 130 grams, it is quite heavy, so it might not suit FPS fanatics.
The Corsair Ironclaw RGB is a wireless mouse and can connect using Corsair’s “Slipstream” technology which jumps channels on the 2.4GHz frequency automatically to keep you seamlessly connected. It feels very responsive and we didn’t encounter any lag. There’s also Bluetooth support as a backup and you also have the option of plugging in via the charging cable for a wired connection. A customizable DPI goes up to 18,000 for extreme accuracy, and your current level is displayed on the side via three LEDs.
To get the best from the Corsair Ironclaw RGB, you’ll want to install the iCue software. This allows you to set up lighting effects; map keys, shortcuts, and macros to buttons; choose your DPI presets; and a host of other specifics to get the right feel for you. We didn’t like the defaults, but after fiddling around with iCue, we really began to appreciate the Ironclaw. You can set up profiles for different games and there’s onboard storage for three profiles.
The rechargeable battery can go for 16 hours connected via Slipstream with the lighting on and it takes around two hours to recharge. Considering the versatility, top notch wireless connectivity, and long list of features on offer here, the price tag feels reasonable.
