Expert Reviews

The Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE is good for office use. It feels very well-built, has a side panel with 12 programmable buttons, and is fully compatible with Windows and macOS. It's best-suited for a claw grip, regardless of hand size, but it's also well-suited for a fingertip for all but extra-large hands and a palm grip for all but small hands. Unfortunately, it doesn't connect wirelessly, the scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons, and it doesn't unlock for free scrolling.
