The first impression the NIGHTSWORD RGB looks very similar to the Logitech G502, maybe inspired by it perhaps but the Corsair NIGHTSWORD is a bit bigger and covered by rubberized surface. In the center is the Corsair logo, which lights up. Between the main buttons is a stylized rubber-covered scroll wheel, which is also RGB backlit. Any other contact surfaces, such as the LBM/RMB have a matte finish.

The weight system is sophisticated as the mouse can calibrate its weight using a real-time center of the gravity detection system. With that said, the Nightsword RGB has an initial weight of 119 grams, and a total of 141 grams with all the weights installed.

The cable is 1.8 m long and fully braided with the USB connector does look like a pen-drive.
