FYI, this story is more than a year old

Corsair's newest Harpoon RGB gaming mouse and K55 RGB gaming keyboard are almost ready for launch, and the company is promising to bring a wealth of high-end features within the reach of every keen gamer.

Corsair Harpoon RGB mouse

The Harpoon is all about precision. Featuring an adjustable 6000dpi optical gaming sensor and a lightweight contoured design, it will help guide your hand through some of the trickiest parts in your game. Its rubber side grips work with your hand grips and play styles.

The mouse features six fully programmable buttons for simple or complex macros. Through the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software, you can also customise your mouse's backlighting to match your mood or your game.

The mouse features on-board memory too so you can take your dpi settings and your mouse wherever you go.

This mouse is light (85 grams) and built to last, with Omron switches rated for 20 million clicks. The extra large PTFE mouse feet allows for precision and smooth gameplay.

Corsair K55 RGB gaming keyboard

Weighing in at a pleasing 822 grams, the K55 RGB has been built to feature quiet and responsive keys, six programmable macros, key remaps, combinations that will work flawlessly in-game.

Up the top, there are dedicated volume and media controls, and a window lock key.

It also features the swirling cascade of customisable Corsair RGB lighting through the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software, making it both visually colourful and helpful at night.

But if the software isn't your thing, the keyboard features a three-zone RGB backlight, with more than 10 preconfigured profiles and colours. You can control these right through your keyboard.

If you're often a victim of ghosting, the K55's multi-key anti-ghosting will ensure that your keyboard impressions are immediate and simultaneous every single time.

Players who indulge in long gaming sessions may just want to use the keyboard tilt adjustment for comfort, and maybe the detachable rubber wrist rest too.

Corsair says the K55 RGB is made to deliver a best best-in-class gaming experience. To do that, you need reliable and rapidly responsive tools, and this one might just be the ticket.

What's more, both the Harpoon and the K55 RGB is backed by a two-year warranty. You also have access to the CORSAIR worldwide customer support network.  Both products are available now.
