I like the mouse. It’s a low-profile mouse, feels pretty good, decent build quality, very light and also the scroll wheel can be used at a fast pace. Sensor performance? Nothing special for an optical mouse. I can sense that a lot of people will love to have this mouse mostly because the low-profile. Though some people would consider lightweight to be a con rather than a pro. If you like the way it feels and don’t mind the weight followed by an easy flow of the scroll wheel, this is a pretty good mouse to consider. I find it strange that it has 128kb memory and there’s no software to do anything with it- macro, key assignment, LED.
On a different and unrelated note, I am curious to know how different mice reacts to different mousepad surfaces- irrespective of the sensor, firmware, brand, etc. I’ve retired my very old Razer Goliathus Control oversize edition and replaced with a very large and tempting Corepad XXXL desk pad that has a smoother surface. I plan to get a friction type pad like the control edition, followed by a cloth pad with a lighter shade on the top and a hard pad (I am curious to get a first-hand experience with hard pads).
What’s also strange is that CM Alcor isn’t listed in any of the U.S. based retail websites. I can’t help buy wonder why Alcor isn’t available in the United States, or if they would be another variant of Alcor (Note: This is speculation as of now) for North American markets. You’ll never know!!
I feel that CM India should to shave off few hundred rupees and distance this mouse away from Mizar’s existing pricing- or at the very provide a rubber grip of the Alcor.
- No sharp edges
- Low profile design
- Soft feel paint
- Well-placed buttons
- No software to assign macros or to turn off the logo backlit.
- Could have used rubber grips on the side
- The performance of the optical sensor (Avago 3090) isn’t really bringing anything new to the compared to other optical gaming mice
