Corsair Katar Review: A Splendid Dagger To The Heart
The Corsair Katar has such an appropriate name which resembles what it embodies–Katar is Sanskrit for “Dagger”, and as we all know, daggers are just small swords–quite deadly in the right hands. The blade themed naming scheme Corsair has chosen fits “cuts up” their new range of gaming mice to address different markets and genres. The Scimitar slices through the high end spectrum of the market, while the Katar is attempting to weave through the crowded budget marketplace, aiming to take down its competition with an extended smile.
Just a friendly warning for those who are not partial to puns, there will be more knife/blade/assassin puns, so some apologies in advance if you would like me to cut it out….
Daggers are deadly based on their covert simplicity; they can be hidden away quite easily and drawn out without much attention to deal in death. At a international price of $39.99 and R650 local pricing, does the Corsair Katar prove to be a cut above the rest, or is it merely a blunt blade that’s only good for buttering bread? To start us off, here are the limited specs for the mouse as reported from the Corsair website. An issue we already have is lack of information about the core technical specifications for this mouse, something you would expect since it’s claiming to be for “Pros”, that segment of user who might appreciate the nitty gritty details like version of optical sensor or micro-switch:
100 dpi – 8000 dpi
Optical (ADNS S3090)
Extra Large PTFE
1.8m Tangle Free Rubber
110.7mm x 63.9mm x 38.4mm
