After trying the Corsair Katar PRO XT gaming mouse and the XL M700 RGB pad, let’s dive into all the details on the two articles.

There is nothing that can stop the well-known Corsair (one of the leading companies in the sector of peripherals – and not only – for gaming) from producing new products that evolve its lineup and satisfy an increasing amount of players. This time we are dealing with a new gaming mouse , the Corsair Katar PRO XT (which joins the Katar PRO Wireless ), together with the XL MM700 RGB pad , perfect for hosting mouse and keyboard in use sessions. We had the opportunity to thoroughly test the two products in question, testing their potential while using the computer and gaming sessions, so let’s find out all the details together in the next lines.


The Katar PRO XT mouse

With a minimal design and a lot of potential, the Katar PRO XT looks like a rather elegant gaming mouse , without too many flashy LEDs, with the inevitable company logo (this time without RGB) and a total of 6 fully programmable keys . The product adapts immediately to the user’s needs from the first connection, offering the perfect compromise for plug and play , dedicated to those who do not want – perhaps even only in the short term – to deal with proprietary software, but allows in every case thanks to iCUEthe next access to a ton of features. You can immediately adjust the DPI simply with the central button, and program the rest simply within any video game.

The minimal design is perfectly symmetrical , so it doesn’t neglect either left-handed or right-handed users. The product is perfectly suited to both Claw and Fingertip sockets (in reality it is quite functional even for the most classic Palm), with a featherweight of only 73 grams and an extraordinary resistance, designed to last even over 50 million clicks . The 18,000 DPI sensor is very accurate and therefore also excellent for competitive sessions of games such as fast-paced MOBA and FPS, especially once all the necessary settings have been adjusted via software. Unlike the previous wireless model, the mouse connects to the computer with a really durable USB cable, which also allows you tominimize response times , making the product perfect for the most competitive sessions.

The Corsair Katar PRO XT still wants to adapt to the majority of users, and it is clear that it is therefore not excellent at best in all its functions, but it is one of the best compromises on the market in terms of comfort and functionality . Thanks also to its surprisingly low weight, this allows in the long run not to feel fatigue in long gaming sessions, especially for users with uncomfortable mouse grips.


The XL MM700 RGB pad

With a design that is anything but elegant this time, but really able to surprise users who want flashy stations, the Corsair XL pad comes with dimensions of 93 cm in length and 40cm in width . This is in fact designed not only to act as a support for the mouse, like the most classic office and gaming mats, but also to support the user’s keyboard and wrists (in case the keyboard is obviously not equipped with a palm rest, and the specific mouse grip requires a soft surface during use). The black fabric, with the inevitable Corsair writing, however, is surrounded by RGB LEDs , which allow you to connect the device to the computer to create superlative lighting effects to say the least.

As for the mouse, it is possible to simply take advantage of the plug and play function, thus feeding the item with a computer or a USB socket without using the software in any way, with the possibility of adjusting the RGB from the appropriate controller located in the high on the right , still getting a fair amount of possibilities when it comes to RGB lighting. In the event that the coupling takes place with a computer through a USB 3.0, the aforementioned controller even allows you to connect two additional USB devices , a tremendously convenient feature that allows you to double a port thanks to the MM700 RGB pad, and not to ” lose it. “One as it normally would.

Speaking of the fabric, we can confirm that this is perfect for holding the keyboard steady, but at the same time also for moving the mouse comfortably , even for several hours. In addition, the lightly padded rubber surface (4mm) offers a premium and comfortable feel in contact with the user’s wrists. The external seams, obviously necessary, are not particularly annoying, especially when compared to other similar products on the market, and the size of the mat allows you to avoid them in any case by positioning your setup differently.

A winning Corsair duo, thanks also to iCUE

We obviously did not forget the real pearl that unites these two devices , completing their offer and making them adaptable to thousands of uses. We are talking about Corsair iCUE software , one of the most complete on the market, which allows you to take advantage of many more features for both devices. As far as the XL MM700 RGB pad is concerned, many light parameters can be changed such as brightness, then lighting each area differently to create completely customizable effects , with a simple and intuitive interface, which allows you to obtain the desired results with really little work.

If obviously for the carpet it is possible only to modify the lights placed at the edges, the situation changes completely for the mouse. iCUE allows you to first change the only RGB present (under the wheel), but also leaves room for many more features. We move from setting specific commands, real macros tremendously intuitive to create and easy to implement (procedures such as movements and key presses), which also allow you to start longer or shorter loops and stall times defined between an input and the next one. All buttons can then be customizedto offer additional functions of all kinds, but you can also decide to indulge yourself with the DPI settings, or meticulously calibrate the surface on which you use the mouse.
