2 out of 5 eggsBroke button, unusable mouse

Pros: Generally worked well before it broke. Good customization options.

Cons: One of the side buttons broke after minimal use. I had just started using one of the side buttons for Diablo 3. The button broke after maybe 10 hours or so of play. I had never used it in any games or applications before then. The entire mouse is now unusable as the button is permanently pressed. hen I use the mouse now, it will actually prevent me from clicking anywhere in some applications.

Also, even when it was working, I often had the problem of the pointer moving slightly when I clicked the main left button.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, I was a couple months out of warranty when it broke.

Manufacturer Response:


I do apologize this mouse has failed on you and furthermore, there is nothing we can really do as you are out of warranty. If you are in the market for a new mouse and need a suggestion, don't be afraid to contact us by phone 888.624.5099 or visit our fanzone to use the Livechat/Ticket Submission. Also, you can visit our CM STORM site for more ideas and see what options are available.

Please let us know what we can do to help.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It was a good mouse while it lasted.

Cons: the button placement did not feel natural to me while gaming. But the biggest issue is that the laser on the mouse just died for no reason.

Other Thoughts: I used it before leaving the house, left for 4 hours, and came back home to a pointer that would respond when the buttons are pressed, but the pointer would not move. Spent time trying to find if it was a corrupt driver, ended up plugging in an old mouse and it worked fine. The laser just died for no reason in the mouse while i was gone. Now i'll buy a new one, but not from this company. avoid this product. it is good but it is cheap enough to break all on its own.

3 out of 5 eggsA Good Mouse but...

Pros: See Other thoughts

Cons: See Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I recently bought this (last November) and while it is GOOD, it isn't GREAT. Here's why:

Bulky SIZE: After hours of using my mouse for work and play, my (right hand) ring finger feels gets very sore. It's really not comfortable for long hours of uses. I naturally tend to place my ring finger alongside the remaining fingers to the side and keep my two clicking fingers on top. But with the design of this mouse, it's rather large so smaller hands suffer for the discomfort. I find myself placing my ring finger alongside my middle finger on top of the mouse to avoid the bulky discomfort. IF the sides of the mouse was more curved inside towards the front of the mouse, then comfort wouldn't be an issue for it's bulky size. I had a mouse (forgot what brand, maybe Logitech?) that was exactly just that and boy do I miss that mouse.

Minimal Sensitivity jerks: DO NOT GET any pieces of hair on the laser tracking pad or on the laser area itself, otherwise it can't "see" properly and will not move accordingly. This is probably the cause of random "jerks" on my mouse that moves the pointer randomly to some other direction. NOT FUN if your playing an online game that requires precise clicking/tracking/pointing/destroying. I have not (or ever) experienced the random "moving" of the mouse pointer though.

Useless thumb Side buttons: Unless your a gamer freak (or even if you are), tacking on more button's don't really make you a better player/computer enthusiast. The software that comes with this mouse can be a little confusing and I still haven't turned the buttons off yet, because accidentally clicking on them will "go back" on that webpage your visiting.

Everything else is a pro with this mouse though. Yet even still, I might buy a new mouse that better suit's my hands because the discomfort limits my enthusiast/work hours on this computer. Small hands, stay away from this mouse, it is better suited for big hands.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat an amazing mouse

Pros: * 3 fully customizable profiles and 1 default
* SOOO many buttons, all nicely located
* Powerful macro and script writing software
* Responsive buttons
* High quality construction and materials
* Feels great / looks great
* Long cord
* Well worth the full retail price, a no-brainer if you can get it on sale.

Cons: * It would be nice if there were clearer instructions on how to use the software, though it's fairly straight forward if you play around with it for an hour or two (maybe a few more if you're learning how to create macros and/or scripts).

* Would be nice if you could disable certain profiles, change the color of each profile, and swap the order of each profile quickly.

Other Thoughts: This mouse is freaking awesome. The number of buttons, how they're laid out, and the fact that they're all fully customizable are superior to any other mouse I've encountered in person or online. I can't imagine using any other mouse for gaming after using this one (I mainly play League of Legends, FPSs, and RPGs).

While it takes some time to learn the software, it's actually quite powerful once you know how to use it (creating macros is much quicker, easier, and more accurate than on any Logitech peripheral I own. I usually create a macro with the CS Storm's software, assign it to a button, then record that macro in my Logitech software if I need a macro on my Logitech devices.

I've been using this mouse for about 2 years now (for several hours daily) and it still feels like it's fresh out of the box. When it finally does reach the end of its life I fully intend to replace it with another just like it (or it's successor if it has been discontinued by that point).

5 out of 5 eggsLoving it

Pros: Love this mouse....I use it for bf3 bf4 and all my shooters even arma. I hardly have to use any keyboard controls due to everything is mapped to my mouse...rapid fire is a bit of a learning curve and if you good with math its easy.

Cons: dust and hair/fibers can cause the mouse to do krazy movement....just keep your mouse pad and bottom if the mouse clean with a can of air.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, Fair.

Pros: * I got this one for $29.99 plus $10 rebate
* Very comfortable in my hand
* Pretty
* Quick Profiles

Cons: * GUI its not 100% user friendly, doesn't show which profile is which color.
* When I tried to click, it moves 2 to 3 pixel away making a precision mouse into a normal mouse one.

Other Thoughts: Its good for the price but if you will use this mainly for gaming go elsewhere mostly if you play FPS

5 out of 5 eggsBuy me!

Pros: I didn't even know that this mouse came with so many amazing features. I use it for Fps gaming & it is the best mouse I have ever owned so far. It beats R**or brand mice by far.

Cons: n/a

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT!

Pros: Comfortable (I have smaller hands), precise movement, LED lights, and MANY buttons (which can all be macroed).

Cons: Honestly... None so far. I hope not too.

Other Thoughts: This mouse works better than I expected. It's rather comfortable for my hands and I got it on sale here, with 20 bucks off and a 10 dollar rebate, so this mouse was virtually only 20 bucks. I haven't run into any issues like everyone else says in regards to the "tracking" and random moving issues of this mouse, and I hope not to but so far everything works well. I'll be moving to my new place in a week from now, so the heavy workload stuff starts there. May the odds ever be in my favor! And to yours if you intend to buy this budget friendly mouse that works GREAT.

1 out of 5 eggsThis mouse is good but

Pros: This is easy to say that this is a awesome mouse really made for gaming but...

Cons: it came defective. The laser is off so it makes the mouse jumps around the screen from time to time even though it has twin laser's. The numbers on the side of the mouse that tell you which number setting you're on for dpi is completely dead, none of the numbers light up. Last but not least the rapid fire button is stuck so its basically impossible to press unless you put full body weight on it.

Other Thoughts: In all honesty i'm giving this a one egg because it came to me pretty messed up from opening the box. The mouse itself is a very good one and I am sure of that because I bought this same mouse for a friend and it is his favorite mouse and for sure winner.

2 out of 5 eggsProvides basic function, not for gaming at all

Pros: -Gear-shifting for higher DPI needs
-Nice LED lights

Cons: -A LOT of tracking
-Fairly large size so most will feel it is too big

Other Thoughts: Self-tracking: The mouse's lense is VERY picky about the cleanliness of it and the surface it is on.
Definetely would not buy another

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,
I'm sorry for the troubles. Please don't hesitate to contact us via Live Chat or tickets regarding any issues you're encountering so that we can assist you.
