Cooler Master CM Storm Recon Review

 

Those who check out my gaming rig invariably ask me the exact same question: why use an entry-level gaming mouse such as the Razer DeathAdder when you've spent Rs 7,000 on a mechanical keyboard and another 1500 bucks to mod it? Unfortunately, this...

Comprehensive driver suite Unlike its Spartan optical brethren, the CM Storm Recon has most of the bells and whistles found in more expensive laser mice. It features LED lighting in three zones: the wheel, logo and the DPI switching buttons. Each zone...

The ambidextrous design is very good for a left handed person like me. The reason I bought it is because it is usable with the left hand (and the multi-colored LED allows it to fit in with any computer design). It is a great mouse, but it could have...

This mouse works for everything I want it for. It is great for games and the included software allows you to map pretty much any kind of macro you could think of to any key. Very useful when you are playing a game and have a complex series of button...

I have used this for a couple months and the only con is that whenever the mouse wheel turns it emanates a most pitiable squeaking sound that reminds me of a small rodent in distress. I wish that the manufacturer would have given the wheel some better...

Best Mouse I've ever used.

 

I've bought a few mice in my time, and this is my favorite one ever.

Good weight, great software, passable mouse wheel, accessible side buttons, well built altogether, perfect size and shape for fingertip grip

As with all gaming mice, the mouse wheel is pretty janky, but, ya know, gaming mice. That's just how it is. However, as far as gaming mice do go, this mouse wheel is giving me minimal stress

CM Storm Recon

 

I will say I love this mouse. It's a great fit in the well spread out. Very sensitive buttons. So unless you get mad gaming, you shouldn't foresee in button damage or sticking. The ability to switch led is awesome and the adjustable DPI is nice....

I would have given this mouse five eggs, but I do have one mild silly complaint. The DPI and color adjusters are the same buttons. So if you don't like the speed at which the mouse is moving but like the color. You either have to get use to it or...

The perfect balance

 

Customization is nice, and the sense seems good for the price range ; Not too expensive

Not immediately apparent how to change the settings
