Corsair M55 RGB Pro Gaming Mouse Review


Corsair M55 RGB Pro: iCUE Software

The Corsair iCUE software can control multiple compatible Corsair devices in a single application. There are a number of options to choose from to gain access to many features about the connected devices. Upon opening the application, we are greeted with the home screen where we can select any of our Corsair devices to configure.

Under the actions tab, we can assign macro functions and remap any of the buttons on the mouse. There are standard features like editing delays, inserting/deleting keys, and recording mouse movements. Once a macro has been recorded, it becomes usable to map to any button on the mouse. We can also assign function to a button, like launch an application, assign it to a media key, and more.

When it comes to lighting effects, there are four options to choose from. iCUE offers Rainbow, Color Shift, Color Pulse, and Static Color. Because there are no hardware profiles with the M55 RGB Pro, the iCUE software will have to run in the background for lighting effects to work.

By default, there are five DPI settings available with a sniper DPI setting. The DPI range on this mouse is from 200 to 12,400 DPI. We can adjust the DPI in steps of 100, which is not the most flexible when it comes to fine tuning. We can also color code the DPI indicator LEDs on the mouse to identify which DPI we are currently using.

Under the performance tab, we have just a few options to choose from. We can adjust mouse acceleration and pointer speed, which corresponds to the Windows mouse pointer settings in the Control Panel.

In the next section, we will test the M55 RGB Pro and finish this review with a conclusion.
