2 out of 5 eggsWish CM cared about more than just Windows

Pros: Good for larger hands, Comfortable. So far seems to be well built.

Cons: If you want to use the three side buttons on the side, or use the profiles even if saved on the mouse, you are confined to windows. Mac and Linux users, we are stuck. I even contacted Customer Support to see why/if no drivers were made to support it them, and I was politely told youre out of luck CM doesn't have any intentions of supporting other OS's.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this mouse (through another website), to replace my logitech G500 which was dying. I have cm storm 922 case and have enjoyed cm products for a while. But with this poor support, I will take my business to another company, CM has pretty much lost all my future business, as well as my word of mouth. To some it may seem silly over a simple driver, but if you have 128k onboard mouse mem, you should think of more than one platform expecially when making a PnP product. mouse or otherwise.

Manufacturer Response:


I apologize for the limited support as our gaming devices are designed primarily for Windows. Though the mouse has onboard memory, these profiles may not translate when switching from OS to OS, each uses its own unique configurations for setups/drivers. Apple products can use third party devices for simple plug n play, but many Apple devices do not have windows/linux support either. If you research online, there are third party applications, which can be used at your own risk, to access some of the advance features like button remapping/other items. The device will work fine if using Windows through Parallels or Bootcamp, but will be limited in OSX.

As far as Linux is concerned, you will need to research in the Linux community, as there are hundreds of different distros, with vastly different requirements. As these are community based OS systems, a lot of companies have issues providing support to encompass every version. You will need to reach out to the community/research what results you may be able to devise. Also, if you're using games installed through Steam, Desura, etc, many have in-game options have ways to remap your keys. Plus, the Havoc works fine with simple Plug N Play operation of common uses on the more popular distros, as some members on CM staff use their peripherals in this fashion as well.

We do apologize for the inconvenience as our gaming peripherals are not designed to be used universally, as our primary focus is Windows. Plus, designing, redesigning those drivers are not a simple feat and can take months of research/development to design a driver to work efficiently within any system. We don't want to lose you as customer, but understand if some of our products can't reach every need. If you ever have any additional questions, concerns, let us know and we'll do our best to help.

Best regards,

1 out of 5 eggsGood until it breaks

Pros: Decent functionality (when it works) and customization. Software easy enough to understand.

Cons: A bit large. Side buttons somewhat fiddly to reach with thumb.

Worst bit, though: This mouse stopped working within 2 months of purchase, which is a new low for me in terms of products that initially worked fine out of the box. No, I didn't manhandle or mistreat the thing, or spill anything on it, or misuse it in any way.

Made in China.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat feeling mouse

Pros: The "rubberized coating" is not what I was expecting. I was hesitant to buy the Havoc at first because of this - I liked the glossy plastic feel of my old mouse. I thought it would feel like holding a mouse shaped tire. So if you are thinking like I did, don't worry. I would say it feels like a mix between teflon and rubber. After 2 weeks of moderate gaming I have noticed the rubber stays clean much better than the plastic side (which is painless to wipe down).

The mouse fits my hand very well. I use a palm grip and my hand is about medium sized, I guess. I haven't had experience with other mice but the main switches feel very sturdy and respond very well.

After downloading the software from the cm storm website, setting the DPI and LEDs is pretty straight forward. I haven't set up any macros yet, I've just kept what's standard.

Cons: It takes a bit of time to download settings to the mouse, but I guess that's understandable.

Other Thoughts: Again, since this is my first "real" mouse, I can't compare it to others, but about 2 weeks in, I really like it.

5 out of 5 eggsBlown away...

Pros: -Fits near-perfectly to my hand and grip style

-Has a nice angle for my palm

-awesome rubbery-matte finish, doesn't tend to collect sweat and grime the way most glossy mice do, plus grips great

-Tracking is silky and still precise

-LED's are nice and not overpowering

-Nice click resistance on the primary L/R buttons

-Decent weight

-Textured rubber thumb grip on the side makes for an excellent grip and so far and my thumb has yet to slip off during intense matches/dungeons.

-Massive "feet" coat almost the entire edge of the underside, very smooth and glides like a cloud for me.

-does NOT feel cheap, this tends to be one of my biggest gripes with mice. It's all a matter of preference, but from where I'm standing this thing is screaming quality in relation to what I payed for it.

Cons: -The glossy strip on the right overhang where (presumably?) most users right ring and pinky finger will sit or lay.

It could do without it entirely and the only purpose it seems to server is cosmetic.

-Resistance on the side mouse buttons is way too touchy, I mean WAY too touchy. I find myself occasionally wrapping my thumb for the forward or center mouse buttons I've programmed functions to, only to find due to the sudden dpi change that I've unknowingly switched mouse profiles. It could use a bit more resistance.

I'm being picky here, I'm blown away by this mouse all in all so please don't let the few noteworthy cons turn you off.

Other Thoughts: (Not cons, just things to mention in case you're one of those buyers who skips straight to reviews without doing the research in its entirety)

-NO adjustable weight system, but the weight it presents on its own is not bad, a bit on the lighter side, but those with massive forearms/hands or those who are used to weights may find this mouse way too lightweight.

Looking for a solid well-rounded gaming mouse for about $50? This could very well be it.

Great product, hat is off to CoolerMaster and I'll likely be using this mouse for years to come.

5 out of 5 eggsInteresting.

Pros: Great size for my hand. Weird combination of claw grip friendly and relaxed hold compatibility. Nice software. Configurable. Lots of buttons.

Cons: Em. It is not free? It feels slightly cheap, although it is, so I suppose that makes sense...

Other Thoughts: Might be small for larger hands.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't try to use with a Mac

Pros: Comfortable, lighting customization is fun

Cons: Some how, using this mouse messes up software on a Mac.

I had to leave a review since this was the oddest behavior I've ever seen on a computer, ever.

If I plug in this mouse into any Mac, I can not open Filezilla (I also seem to have other issues within things not working correctly with other pieces of software). If I unplug the mouse, I can then open Filezilla. I've been able to do this across different machines and have the exact same experience.

I've never had an issue using a 'pc' mouse on a Mac and this was by far the oddest issue I've ever seen. If I plug in and unplug the mouse a few times it will end up crashing OSX. Some process is started when I plug it in but I couldn't nail down the exact process before the computer hangs.

I have no idea how a mouse would stop a program from starting but this one does. I'm sure on a PC it's great, but if you want to try to use it on a Mac (I run Parrallels so had the software installed on the PC side), it's basically useless.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsComfortable

Pros: Fits on my hand Perfectly. The downloadable software has everything you need to customize how the mouse operates on your OS if desired. All the lights inside are somewhat customizable as well, Pretty cool breathe option, making the light pulse. You can create Macros assign rapid fire to a button. You can change mouse sensitivity & fine tune the X & Y axis speeds. Create multiple profiles that save to the mouse. You can do a lot with this mouse.

Im an on and off gamer that does a lot of computer art professionally. This mouse has a good Comfortable feel to it. Very happy I chose it. I'm very very picky when it comes to mouses. This was a shot in the dark and im glad i did it.

~It just looks sick. Ive just been sitting here staring at it for like an hour.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: This mouse is a little light. Just saying...Its light if your used to a heavier mouse. Just a little getting used to required.
