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...

COOLER MASTER SGM-4001-KLLW1

 

wish the left/right switch buttons were not so fragile and had better software support. after my mouse fall off my desk i know how to use the right side macro buttons for my right click. the scroll wheel started bugging out after 9 months owning it...

fits nice in your hand ; high dps for gaming ; programmable macros ; can have set profiles for different games your playing ; on the fly dps change

right click button switch broke after falling off my 3 foot desk ; scroll wheel bugs out when zooming in or out ; no color wheel in software only preset colors that CM put on ; mouse lazer skips alot if you have dust on your mousepad

Just want I needed!

 

- My wife has smaller hands (she's 4'11"), and this mouse is a bit on the larger size... but she's weird, and no eggs will be lost ;P

The non slip grip isn't weird feeling like some other mice ; The light is bright enough and not some weird off color ; The speed is great

None

Great Mouse

 

Though this is just my hand size, this mouse is a little too small for me. I use a Sentinel Advance Zero G as my desktop mouse, which is about to be replaced. The cable is not sleeved, so some may or may not like that.

It's lasted over a 1 year being tossed / shaken as my laptop mouse ; It lights up and has switchable profiles

I keep hitting the side buttons because they're pretty large

I Love This Mouse!!

 

i use this mouse for MMO RPGs and FPS games. Good configs for MMOs are to have the top left side button set to what ever key is used for basic communication with NPcs and objects like the common "F" or "E" keys Bottom left set to space for jumping(most...

The customization of this mouse is perfect. the ability of all the different button configurations you can do with the software is just what I was looking for. Despite complaints on the software from other reviews I found the recon software to be very...

took me 3 days to get used to the click sensitivity but i was making a transition from a horrible 10$ mouse so really not a con just my personal experience ; side buttons can get in the way but are easily disabled if not wanted

Just a great mouse

 

Overall, this mouse is great. All the cons I've listed are very minimal disturbances. I've seen alot of folks talk about how they hate the software that ships with the mouse, but I personally love it. It works, and gives me alot of ways to customize my...

Has a bit of weight to it, which I personally love, great lagless sensor, neat looking design and LEDs, feels very solid

Ambidextrous design probably isn't for everyone. Button sensitivity takes a while to get used to- they're very sensitive, which is GOOD, but it takes some getting used to if you're coming from a bad mouse like me

Great mouse

 

I've recommended my friends buy this, so you should too!

I'd give the mouse 5/5 and the software 4/5, the mouse is great, definitely what you'd expect, comfortable, looks great, and the weight of the mouse itself is right where you'd want it to be. After I got the right settings and adjusted the arrow speed...

The material of the black part of the mouse, where you rest your fingers, can get oily and it's pretty easy to see, I have to clean it about once or twice a month ; Also I sometimes find myself accidentally hitting the side arrows and if I'm in a...

Temporary mouse

 

I bought this for a temporary replacement to my M60.

Good feel to it, descent weight, looks good

Its ambidextrous, knew this, but my ring finger hits the side button when im clutching the mouse. Other than that it does the job. Non-braided cable

Left handed users be dammed

 

Great mouse. Smooth and responsive. I was concerned from pictures and reviews that this might not fit a person with larger hands. Does just fine. The LED light change on dpi was a nice touch

So the title of this gives a glipse at my only frustration. It isn't aproduct defect or even poor design. But the thumb buttons for the lefty are constantly accidentally activated. I game with a claw grip and unfortunately this puts my fingers right on...
