The Corsair Katar Pro XT ultra-light gaming mouse has dropped to just $24.99 through Amazon (opens in new tab). This is a match for the lowest price it has ever been since its release early last year (2021, remember), and it has only dropped this low briefly a couple of times ever. Considering it normally sells for $30, which is already a bargain-level price for what you get, this $5 discount just makes it a steal. Even if you're just looking for a great portable or backup option to take on the road or get tossed around inside your backpack, it's a good pickup.

You might invest a lot more in a primary mouse, but this one would still make a great backup option. It's a smooth ride with an 18,000 DPI precision sensor, a lightweight design, and a really inexpensive price.

The Katar Pro XT mouse weighs only 73g. That's super lightweight, making it very agile so you won't get fatigued during long gaming sessions. Plus when a mouse is that lightweight, it can be a great one to take with you on trips when you just need something in your backpack not taking up too much room.

In addition to floating like a feather, the mouse has an 18,000 DPI optical sensor. You can customize the DPI, too, so you can adjust it based on the game you're playing. Be as accurate as possible no matter what you're doing. The Quickstrike buttons use a spring-loaded design, and with no gaps between the buttons you get a response time that's just that much faster.

If you want to use Corsair's free iCue software you can get a lot more functionality out of the mouse as well. Adjust the sensitivity as you see fit. All six buttons, including the mouse wheel, are fully customizable. You can also set the RGB lighting and create your own effects.
