CORSAIR Dark Core RGB SE Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

Thanks to CORSAIR, we’ll be taking a look at the Dark Core RGB SE Wireless Gaming Mouse. This wireless gaming mouse offers ultra-fast 1ms 2.4GHz wireless connection, full RGB effects, Qi® wireless charging capability, 16,000 dpi, 9 programmable buttons, 3 on-board memory profiles, 24-hour battery life, and Onrom switches with up to 50 millions clicks.

I have to say, I haven’t reviewed a decent wireless mouse for a while. My last one was a 3 button, AA-battery powered, budget wireless mouse from Logitech, which surprisingly did its job pretty well. But I knew, this wasn’t going to last. That’s because I recently got myself back in to gaming (PUBG and CS:GO), and I need to upgrade my mouse FAST! … so I asked Corsair for one of their high-end Dark Core RGB gaming mouse.



Looking at the specs, the Corsair Dark Core RGB SE has everything I need in a gaming mouse. I just hope I’m be good enough to make full use out of the mouse. It’s the first gaming mouse I’ve seen that offers 3 ways of connection. Wired via USB cable, wireless using the 2.4GHz dongle and Bluetooth connection.

I would like to thank Corsair for providing this review sample! Let us see what they have to say about themselves on their website:


More than 20 years of PC performance innovation

Founded in 1994, Corsair has grown from pioneering the high-performance DRAM market to one of the world’s leading providers of enthusiast-grade PC components and peripherals. Our groundbreaking technology and innovation can be found in our high-performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, PC cases, PC and CPU cooling solutions, and solid-state storage devices. Under the Corsair Gaming brand, launched in 2014, we provide gaming keyboards, mice, headsets and mouse mats to eSports professionals and anybody who is passionate about competitive PC gaming.


Corsair hardware is regularly featured in showcase “dream systems,” and we have earned the adulation and respect of the press, professional gamers and overclockers, high-end system integrators, and PC enthusiasts worldwide by delivering leading-edge technology backed by renowned service and support.

Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships, and our products are available through leading distributors and retailers in over sixty countries worldwide.


What I really like about the Corsair Dark Core is the build quality, ergonomics and of course its full RGB lighting. It’s compatible with Corsair’s iCue and Corsair Utility Engine software to give you full customization. Incidentally, the difference between the standard Dark Core RGB and the Dark Core RGB SE, is that the latter offers Qi wireless charging capability. 

There’s not much to say about a gaming mouse, other than to give it a good test while playing PUBG and CS:GO. So lets get started and take a look at the specifications and features on our next page.

You can buy the CORSAIR Dark Core RGB SE Wireless Gaming Mouse for and USD $89 –
