The $100 Corsair M75 Air Wireless is a lightning-fast mouse that’s precisely tailored for the quickest competitive games.
In FPS, Battle Royale, and MOBA games, it more than had my back in closely contested firefights. A good deal of that speed comes from its kickass hardware — its 26K Marksman Optical sensor with up to a 2,000Hz / 0.5 ms default polling rate, for one — but that’s only half of the story… While other FPS gaming mice depend almost entirely on their hardware for speed, the Corsair M75 Air Wireless draws equally on its symmetrical, tapered design, which you could say is its real secret weapon. Indeed, this mouse is like the peregrine falcon of the gaming mouse world; streamlined, and with just the right amount of weight, it moves across your mouse mat with a smoothness and glide that you’d be hard pressed finding in any competitors.
The Corsair M75 Air Wireless boasts a narrow, high-backed design that enables superior control. Its 26K Optical sensor is quick and reliable, and it offers up to a quick 2,000Hz / 0.5ms default polling rate. However, there is one button for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that can be confusing, and there’s just one onboard memory profile. Additionally, there’s no DPI switcher button, which may be a drawback for some users.
Measuring 1.6 x 2.6 x 5 inches, the M75 Air has quite a narrow front and high top when compared to other FPS mice like the Razer Viper V3 HyperSpeed. It feels very supportive in the three major grip types — claw, palm, and fingertip — but it’s especially accurate in a claw and palm grip, since its high-arched back really fills up the palm, making micro movements a little easier to pull off. The M75 Air Wireless supports wireless, Bluetooth, and wired connections, and comes with a tiny USB-C dongle and USB-A to USB-C cord in the box. It sports a five-button configuration that offers no unwanted distractions to play. The mouse’s battery life is quite decent — the M75 Air Wireless offers up to 34 hours in Wi-Fi mode and up to 100 hours in Bluetooth mode.
The iCue software app is your go-to app for tweaking the M75 Air Wireless’s settings. It lets you create personalized profiles and calibrate the mouse to perform at its best on the surface you’re using it on. The M75 Air Wireless’s Marksman 26K Optical Sensor is a serious piece of hardware that tracks movement at 650 inches per second (IPS) and at a maximum acceleration up to 50G. The Corsair Quickstrike buttons also proved some of the fastest I’ve used, rated for a long life of 100 million clicks. However, there is no dedicated DPI button, which may be a drawback for some users.
In summary, the Corsair M75 Air Wireless is a lightning-fast gaming mouse designed for speed and precision, making it ideal for fast FPS games. Its narrow, high-backed design and reliable 26K Optical sensor provide superior control and quick, precise responses. The button configuration is distraction-free, and it offers reliable wireless, Bluetooth, and wired connectivity. The iCue software app allows for personalized profiles and surface calibration, while the Marksman 26K Optical Sensor offers excellent tracking and performance in games such as Fortnite and Counter-Strike 2. However, the lack of a dedicated DPI button may be a drawback for some users.
