I am so sick of unreliable faulty Corsair products. Most overpriced brand on the market imo. ALL of my Corsair RGB stuff has problems, and then finally my mouse of only 6 months has given up the ghost on the most important button?? I'm done with Corsair. I have to RMA so much of their crap. But I REALLY liked the M65, I liked its extra thumb "thumb" sniper button, I liked that it wasn't huge, I liked that it had weights that you could use to make it just the right weight, I liked its feel in my hand, and I liked the three little RGB lights shining out the back and I liked the rest of the look. But that's Corsair for you, they make these flashy products with all these features with some pretty good software to back it all up, but when it comes to reliability... they are the worst. I've come to know EVGA as a maker of very reliable products, I've always used their power supplies, and I plan  to switch to one of their 3080's once the damn queue finally gets to me! Any day now, EVGA... But I'm looking for a mouse from EVGA that is like Corsair's m65, can anyone recommend based on the things I liked? I think a Sniper button is a must, or something like it.

    I have a X17 wired. It does have the sniper feature. The X20 is the wireless. 
     
    You might want to check both versions out. X20 is out of stock.

    WOW, that's weird to hear.  . I've had the exact opposite experience with Corsair.  
    All of my Corsair products have lasted longer than most others.  I also had the M65 mouse like you & so did my son.  
    In fact, they both still work .. I only switched over to the Dark Core because I wanted a wider 'wing' on both sides for my fingers to rest on.
    Good luck on your search for a unit you like....

    I prefer the wired version anyway, does it have good RGB? Or any for that matter?

    Corsair gaming mice have a 2 year warranty. If your mouse is not older than 2 years old request an RMA.

    Corsair is so flakey with their reliability, sometimes things work, sometimes they break. Apparently, the m65 left-click button breaking very early on has been a very widespread problem for a year or two, but I even saw posts as far back as 2017 that said that their left-click was broke after just a few months.
     
    Corsair RGB problems:
    Do you have a lot of Corsair RGB products? If so, how are they? I've got HUGE problems with mine. So I've got an H100i Plat that came with 2 LL fans, the LL fans are very bright and vivid and for the most part, show the correct color, the PUMP is also bright and vivid BUT, it shows the completely wrong colors. It shows a light yellow for white, it shows a pinkish-cherry red for full red, it shows a light green periwinkle for Cyan, and etc. Next is the RAM, 4 sticks, 2 sticks are dimmer than the other two, but nearly half of the LEDs in all 4 sticks are showing the exact same behavior of the pump, white is yellow, red is a cherry red, cyan is a periwinkle... and then so are the Phanteks strips that I bought and hooked up to the RGB Node Pro. Same color issues. But the worst is the 4 QL fans I have in my case, they are dim, they are showing the wrong color as well, but not nearly to the extent of the Pump, dying RAM LEDs, and Phanteks strips. It's the dim LEDs on the entire fan that makes the QL fans the worst thing in my setup. I don't understand why they aren't as vivid as the LL fans on the h100i, the QL fans are going through the fan hub into the Node Pro, so I swapped one of them, and guess what happened, the QL fan that was hooked into the h100i lit up like a christmas tree, it was bright and vivid for the first time in it's life, but the LL fan that was hooked into the Fan Hub into the Node Pro was now dim and behaving just like all the other QL fans. So I got a brand new set of 3 LL fans with a brand new Fan hub and a brand new Node Pro, hooked up the LL fans and disconnected the old Node Pro and Fan hub and... they were all just as dim as the QL fans were... and display exactly the same slightly different colors. I don't understand what's going on. It must be a motherboard issue, maybe that USB header just isn't as good as the one that the h100i is plugged into. Maybe they all have one of the three main color LEDs screwed up in a way. Maybe because of fans are in series one bad fans makes them all go bad. Maybe gigabyte is intentionally sabotaging ICUE in order to promote their own RGB ecosystem, which is **** btw. I don't know. All I know is, it's all getting RMA'd. Have any thoughts?
