Corsair Katar Pro Review
Corsair’s new addition to the budget mouse lineup is getting stronger than ever. Until now, when people ask me for a recommendation for a good budget gaming mouse, the first mouse that appears to my mind is Logitech’s trusty G102.
And let me be honest here, the sub ₹1,500 gaming mouse segment is crowded with lots of gaming mice from different brands. And Corsair has introduced a good gaming mouse under the ₹1,500 segment. Without further adieu, let’s check out the review of the Corsair Katar Pro gaming mouse.
Packaging and contents
What can you expect here? It’s pretty simple and straightforward packaging with the mouse and documentation of the mouse itself. Here’s a picture that shows the contents of the box :
Being a Logitech G304 user, I always wished for one thing. Wouldn’t this mouse be great if it had side grips? And well that’s exactly what we are looking at here. The Corsair Katar Pro is a budget segment mouse with a super basic design with symmetrical sides.
The mouse is focused primarily for those who use claw-style grip and not to forget it’s for the right-hand users as the side M5 switches are on the left side of the mouse. The Corsair Katar Pro also comes with a side texture. It might sound as a basic thing for you, but trust me on this. Coming from the Logitech G304, the side texture really makes a huge difference as it gives a good grip to the overall mouse.
The Corsair Katar Pro is a simple and symmetrical mouse for the right-handed gamers out there who play in Claw grip or fingertip grip style. Just like any other mouse out there, this mouse has two primary buttons, a scroll wheel, a DPI cycle button on the center, and two side buttons.
The mouse is packed with the PMW3391 sensor which is Corsair’s version of the PMW3360 sensor. This features a maximum DPI of 18,000 DPI. The switches used in this mouse is the ever trusty Omron Switches which is rated up 50M clicks per switch.
The mouse itself weighs 73 grams without the cables & accessories which is fairly light when compared to the G102 and the G304 mice.

The Corsair Katar Pro is inevitably the best budget mouse in my opinion. Not just for the price but for the feature It provides. This mouse is housed with a good sensor and is one of the perfect options for claw grip and fingertip grip users. Here’s a stream where I used the Corsair Katar Pro with mouse cam :
Pro tip: If you are a Logitech G102 or a G304 user, your switch will be seamless and definitely and a good upgrade.
Happy Gaming 😁
