Corsair Harpoon Rgb Wireless Review

DETAILED TESTING OF CORSAIR HARPOON RGB WIRELESS

2019 is likely to be the year that more and more device manufacturers will present wireless versions of their existing products or BRAND NEW wireless devices. While Logitech has been a leader in the wireless device category in recent years, other manufacturers have also begun to explore this segment. At CES last year, Corsair released its own wireless mouse and keyboard. This year it seems that they are taking things seriously with new developments. Corsair Slipstream is the company’s new wireless technology standard that will power its wireless products in the future. We will explain the new proprietary technology in more detail after. Corsair also announced the first product that will take advantage of this new technology with the harpoon RGB Wireless. It is a wireless version of the harpoon RGB, but with a different sensor, while the rest of the design remains unchanged.

Features and accessories

While the Corsair harpoon RGB Wireless consists of several functions, the most discussed functionality is the new wireless technology Slipstream. The new technology is said to be twice as fast as the previous generation and has implemented an intelligent (Intelligent) Frequency change. This allows the wireless device to continue scanning the wireless spectrum for faster channels. Since digitization is still active, it will jump or switch to the fastest available route every time, regardless of how strong the wireless traffic is in that space. The proprietary protocol layer design allows for better signal strength and a signal with a very long range of up to 30 m or 100 feet (headphones only). The harpoon RGB Wireless can be used at a distance of up to 33 feet. Corsair says it has an incredible response time of just 0.5 seconds between the device and the receiver. Note that this is not the same as the query rate. At the moment, the harpoon RGB Wireless is the only product under Slipstream. However, Corsair already plans to release wireless headsets and keyboards that support this technology. Another advantage of Slipstream is the ability to support multiple devices in a single receiver. Essentially, your keyboard, mouse, and headphones can be wirelessly connected to your system via a single wireless receiver or dongle.

The harpoon RGB Wireless has an 850 mAh lithium polymer battery inside. With all RGB bling enabled, you can enjoy about 30 hours of uninterrupted use. However, if you enable power saving mode through Corsair iCUE software, RGB lighting will be turned off and you should be able to work for up to 60 hours. If you reduce the query rate from 1000 Hz to 500 Hz or less, we believe you may be able to support longer usage. In Bluetooth mode, you can achieve up to 40 hours of battery life. When the battery of the mouse is completely released, it will take about two hours to fully charge. Switching between the 2.4 GHz wireless connection and the Bluetooth connection is facilitated by the switch under the mouse.

Previously, the harpoon RGB used the PMW3320 optical sensor and the improved wireless mouse used a pmw3325 SENSOR. It can go up to a maximum of 10,000 DPI and up to five DPI levels can be assigned. You can view the values in increments of 100 DPI with iCUE. The mouse packs Omron switches for left and right click buttons that have a durability of 50 million clicks. In addition, RGB lighting, macro filming, built-in profile storage and other such functions are supported by iCUE.
