CM Storm Recon Gaming Mouse


The body shape of the Recon reminds me a bit of the Logitech G9, as it is shorter and less contoured than most gaming mice. No large, swooping grooves are found on the Recon. It is more rounded and symmetrical in shape, which is perfect for...

Excellent tracking and accuracy; ergonomic design for both right and left-handers, plenty of customization and profile options

No adjustable weight system

From a value perspective, the under-$50 price point of the Recon is a welcome change in a sea of mice priced north of $50. In terms of similarly priced gaming mice on the market today, the only feature that is lacking is an adjustable weight system. If...

CM Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review


The Avago 3090 optical sensor ensure that the cursor does not skip and remains smooth and precise even on higher DPI settings at normal speeds, though it does jitter a little when you move it slowly. For precision photoshop work, you will probably want...

Optical mice are making a comeback and CM Storm are scouting the market with the Recon mouse. We also try out the Skorpion Bungee for size...

Ambidextrous design ; Rubberised texture ; Macro functionality ; 4 DPI levels ; Unlimited profiles ; Customisable Lighting

Not suitable for large hands ; No accessories

CM Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review (w/ Skorpion Mouse Bungee)


Building upon the recent success of the Sentinel series, CM Storm has aimed to conquer every segment of the market with the all-round performance-orientated Recon. Intended to offer the utmost in durability, functionality and accuracy, has CM Storm...

Comfortable shape and rubberised grip ; 9 customisable buttons ; High quality Omron micro switches ; Customisable LED colours ; Conveniently located DPI adjustment buttons ; Truly ambidextrous design

4000 DPI may be limited for certain users ; CM Storm Skorpion mouse bungee is of questionable use

KitGuru says: CM Storm has done it again! The Recon is a comfortable and easy to use gaming mouse that utilises one of the market’s supreme sensors to offer excellent performance in a variety of scenarios.

Good Mouse


Like the mouse, good reaction time. It has fun colors. I play League of Legends, Counter Strike, and other games and the mouse has performed well for all of them.

Great Basic Gaming Mouse-Must Download Software


Overall, this is an awesome gaming mouse that more than meets my needs. It doesn't have as many buttons as some of the mice I've seen...but for me that is not an issue. The size is just right--it's a full size mouse but not as big and clunky as some...

Great Gaming Mouse


This mouse is a great mouse for the price! I purchased it as a gift and it hasn't gotten any complaints yet! The two issues he noticed were that it was a bit finicky with white surfaces as a "mouse pad" - it wasn't always recognizing movements. Also,...
