Testing and Final Thoughts
As usual, to test I fire up FPS game like Battlefield 1, CS: GO, Battlefield 5 and few other games, the PixArt PMW3391 optical sensor is accurate and there no acceleration issue. As for comfort concerned it’s very comfortable to hold because of its shape which allows you to rest your thumb on the mouse and thumb didn’t interfere with the side buttons. Also, the textured rubber coating helps to. It’s good for both fingertip grip or claw grip. Overall the mouse is comfortable to use, though it’s a big mouse so if you have a very small hand than you may feel a little discomfort.

Overall NIGHTSWORD RGB is an impressive combination of smooth performance, comfortable design and packed with customizable buttons. And thanks to its weight-adjustment feature, you can adjust the weight as your liking also where you want the weight which is a very rare future in a gaming mouse. The NIGHTSWORD RGB not design as an ultra-lightweight FPS mouse, it designed for gamers who want a feature-packed mouse with a ton of buttons to customize macros and moves for MOBA or strategy games, but also do well in FPS games. The PixArt PMW3391 optical sensor with 18K DPI can be fine-tuned from 100 DPI upwards, in 1 DPI steps, which is just excellent means you adjust your DPI at a precise point. lighting customization is another strong point for NIGHTSWORD RGB with iCUE software you can sync the lighting effects across all Corsair products. The build quality was also better than I expected, the product does not feel cheap, and or plasticky, certainly better than its direct competition Logitech G502. So overall Corsair NIGHTSWORD RGB is a really skillfully crafted product with a great sensor (one of the best on the market) and packed with features and it rightfully earned our Editor Choice Award.
