"The first is that the MM1000’s USB passthrough simply doesn’t work very well. It charges things slowly, and it created unbearable feedback for wireless headset mics."
This was a review of the Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE or the MM1000?
"The second is that it’s hard to find a situation in which Qi charging the Dark Core RGB Pro Se is actually worthwhile."
I don't use the MM1000. I just use a standard Qi charger for a phone that's on my desk. At the end of the night I grab the phone and lay down the mouse. It charges the rest of the night and is full for the next use. It is plugged into the wall not the PC.
TLDR: The mouse is 5 stars. Who cares about the mouse pad...
