Finding a great gaming mouse is no easy prospect for most people. Frankly, it can be downright a pain in the…..er, hand. Hands come in different sizes, as it were, and users have just as many different preferences as there are choices on the market for a solid gaming mouse. These little rodents are often a source of much debate and discomfort, at least when poorly designed. Form follows function, as the old saying goes.
Users tend to find a mouse they like and rarely venture into uncharted territory, seemingly content to use what they have for years, and you don’t see many innovations, let alone newcomers to the marketplace. Cooler Master is no industry lightweight, however, and has plenty of experience with hardware components. In fact, we’ve taken a look at several of their gamer-oriented Storm lineup products and found nearly all of them to be very well designed and constructed, both stylish and smartly functional. And today we’re looking at another, the CM Storm Havoc, a laser gaming mouse that looks to offer great features for an attractive price of $55.
This puts the Havoc in the midst of a very competitive segment in the peripheral mouse market. There are a few products in this price range that make a compelling story for gamers who want a new mouse that can tackle their needs. Can the Storm Havoc also meet those needs?? Let’s find out.
