Firstly, the USB connector. The color scheme of connector match with their Corsair Gaming Series theme which looks very nice for us. But unfortunately the USB connector is not gold plated.

Braided sleeved cable to avoid the wires from peeling off, a must have feature for a premium gaming mouse.

Top view. The mouse size is rather short and it¡¯s more suitable for claw grip but not for palm grip.

Bottom of mouse. Laser sensor in the middle, and one problem here is the mouse feet design is quite unique, in future maybe is little bit difficult to find replacement unless Corsair selling it separately.

Software : 
Their software called Corsair Utility Engine. Quite friendly user interface. So the first one, assignments tab. There are total of 8 programmable buttons, users allowed to change all the functions of these buttons. user posted image

Next one will be the lighting tab, one of the fancy features with this mouse. Up to 4 zones where users are able to customize the lighting.

Performance & DPI tab, laser sensor tends to allow higher DPI but here we are not going to discuss the difference between laser and optical sensor. After DPI stages set, users can easily change the DPI profile using default button 6 & 7.

Actions and Lighting profiles are more advance setting, users can also import profile created by others.

Mouse is one of the component we use the most in our gaming time, so choosing the right mouse is a must. First you have to know your own grip, in our opinion this mouse is good for claw grip user but not suitable for palm grip user. Besides that, all the features provided by Corsair Sabre Laser RGB are awesome. High DPI up to 8200dpi and 4 customizable lighting zones which allowed users to match their PC theme easily. 

Pros
- Ergonomic design makes comfortable grip
- Customizable lighting on 4 zones
- Braided sleeved cable
- Able to set macro and 8 programmable buttons

Cons
- Not suitable for palm grip
- Non gold plated USB header
- Surface will get dirty easily
