The Corsair KATAR PRO XT is a lightweight, ambidextrous mouse with two buttons on its left side. It looks physically identical to the more expensive wireless version of itself and has LED strips along its scroll wheel as well. The feel of it in my hand was very comfortable and sturdy whereas I had expected something far worse for $15 less than the wireless version that came out only months prior (at time of writing).
It’s small size makes it best suited for those who use either a claw grip or fingertip style during gameplay which also helps reduce fatigue over long play sessions since your pinky finger isn’t doing anything at all. Unfortunately however, this sensor seems rather inconsistent where some would argue even more so when moving faster within certain movements.
Corsair Katar Pro XT Review
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT is a decent choice for office use. It’s well-built and should feel comfortable in most hand sizes, but it doesn’t have an ergonomic shape or infinite scrolling capabilities without L/R tilt buttons on the scroll wheel. The mouse isn’t wireless either, which could be problematic to some people with its cable as well.
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT is great for FPS gaming. It feels sturdy, and it’s best suited to use with a claw or fingertip grip. Despite not having the honeycomb design that many gamers enjoy, this mouse doesn’t feel heavy in your hand at all! The click latency isn’t too high but may be harder to adjust than other models on the market if you find yourself unaccustomed to its responsiveness level it should still respond well enough for most people though! Unfortunately, its sensor can get wonky when moving quickly so keep an eye out while playing competitive games online because every shot counts.
Unfortunately, its sensor is inconsistent and undershoots the set CPI when moving fast more than it does in slow movements. It feels very well-built but people with larger hands may struggle to use a palm grip. The Corsair KATAR PRO XT has low click latency and can be adjusted precisely despite not having as many side buttons for dedicated MMO mice.
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT is not only lightweight, but also well-built. It’s suitable for most hand sizes using a claw or fingertip grip and has low click latency with high maximum polling rate. The paracord like cable may be flexible however it does retain some kinks here and there throughout use of the mouse.
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT isn’t designed for travel as it won’t be ideal while working in tight spaces like a bus or plane and is not very portable.
Corsair Katar Pro XT Style
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT is an all-matte black mouse with a full RGB zone in its scroll wheel. The left and right sides of the device have slight textured finishes to help you grip it, but they also look sleek because of their matte finish.
It has two buttons on each side that are slightly tilted for easier access while using your thumb or ring finger depending on which hand you use more often during daily tasks such as browsing through social media sites like Instagram or Facebook, working at home/at work by typing up documents quickly so other people can see them without having to wait too long before receiving feedback from clients who may need some edits made here and there until it’s perfect enough for everyone involved within the process.

Corsair Katar Pro XT Build Quality
The Corsair KATAR PRO XT feels extremely solid. The buttons don’t squeak and there’s no rattling sounds when you shake the mouse around. There aren’t any loose parts like on other mice that I’ve used in the past, which makes it feel very durable as well as nice to use during long gaming sessions without interruption from fatigue or discomfort of some sort.
Corsair Katar Pro XT Comfort of Use
The KATAR PRO Wireless has an ambidextrous shape with a short body, making it best suited for small- to medium-sized hands. The buttons and scroll wheel are well placed, but the mouse is not textured on its sides which could make gripping uncomfortable or difficult at times.

With a CPI range of 1, you can pinpoint your movements with ease. Furthermore, the low lift-off distance ensures that there are no tracking issues when moving it to different positions on your mousepad. You have four polling rates at which you can play: 125Hz, 250hz 500hZ and 1000HZ. The unfortunate downside is that this sensor has inconsistent results – sometimes undershooting or overshooting depending on how fast you’re going!
