Cooler Master Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master Storm recon with CM logo


There are a lot of new PC games coming out for the Christmas season this year, and that means that you (or your favorite PC enthusiast) need a really good gaming mouse.  The problem with many good gaming peripherals is that they are rather expensive.  On the flip side, the few inexpensive ones barely have enough features to be considered “gaming grade”.  Cooler Master wants to change that by delivering a good gaming mouse with lots of features without spending a lot of money.

The Cooler Master Storm line of PC gaming products has a decent lineup of gear, and their latest is the Storm Recon Gaming Mouse.  It features the same Avago 3090 optical sensor used in the Razer DeathAdder 3.5G, has on-the-fly tuning, has three lighting zones, and claims to be fully programmable.
