The mouse is based on an ambidextrous design, with an exception that the side buttons are present only for the right-handed users.
For my use, the bundled mouse is small. But the palm and finger rest areas are smooth unlike the one bundled with CM Octane bundle. This also has RGB effects which can be controlled by pressing assigned key combinations. The mouse uses Avago 3050 with Omron switches for the left and right clicks. The mouse has three DPI levels with a light indication. Red for 500, Purple for 2000 and White for 3500 DPI. Once I got used to the size of the mouse, the only issue I see is the feel you get from sliding sideways. It needs mouse feet at the sides so that moving the around in those directions is smoother.
Grip Type and Button Placement
The other issue is probably with this review unit. After three-to-four days the friction scroll wheel started to squeal. Though it didn’t feel that something is preventing the scroll wheel to be used, the noise is terribly annoying. Pressing the buttons on the side feels very cheap unlike the left and right clicks. Even the DPI has a better click quality. The wheel has a textured grip and LED bling on its side. Just below the palm rest, CM has put a RGB highlight. Palm/claw grip is the common grip type and both are suitable for this mouse.The buttons are placed in easy-to-reach positions. For the price, the build quality is decent and thanks to a smooth design the mouse is decent.
The buttons are placed in easy-to-reach positions. For the price, the build quality is decent and thanks to a smooth design the mouse is decent. It’s not CM Alcor or Mizar, but for the price and the built quality you get on the keyboard, it’s good enough.
