Corsair iCUE Nexus Review



Following their acquisition of Elgato it wasn't a shock to see Corsair flex their muscles in that direction, and the Nexus looks like a superb piece of hardware. Is it?

Epic conclusion, prettymuch sums up my thoughts when i saw it, a gimmick at best.

For the price they are charging it should've been all screen or as close to it as possible.

So it's worse than the screen of good ole G15, while being more expensive. Sick product!

Was thinking you'd be better looking for a G15 I had 1 in the day and you could link it to show ingame stats

Too bad they missed the mark so bad. All they need to do is cut the price in half, shrink those bezels with a larger (better) screen, then completely redesign the software.

Edit: Could use more RGB too.

I really don't see the market for these. I may be wrong, but who wakes up in the morning saying: "Man, I really need overpriced thingy that fits on a couple of expensive keyboards and makes me use one of the most unstable bloatware on the planet."

I'm still rocking a G510 and the little screen while very readable doesn't have much use. I just have CoreTemp on it to monitor my system

Honestly, with it being so small you'd be better off getting the real Streamdeck :X

A useless device and poorly made. VERY disappointing Corsair. I expect better from you.
