Introduction

Anyone who games knows how crucial it is to have great peripherals to give you the edge over your competitors. The gaming accessory market has exploded the last few years with tons of mice, mouse pads (or gaming surfaces as the’re now known) and more, showing up everywhere you look. Sure, your shiny new 6-core CPU and top-level graphics card will handle the output end of things. But what about the input side of it? All that hardware does you no good when gaming with a $10 wally-world mouse and a dollar-store mouse pad. Enter CM Storm and their wide range of gaming peripherals. They were kind enough to send me over a Recon mouse, Skorpion mouse bungee and a Control-RX gaming surface to play with, and for this first review we’ll be looking at the Recon Gaming mouse. Let’s get to it!

About the CM Storm Recon:

“The Recon Gaming Mice is designed specifically for gamers that demand the utmost in durability, functionality and accuracy. The ambidextrous form factor and rubberized coating making it a versatile for all types of grip gestures. Recon equipped with a pair of Omron Micro switches and Avago 3090 high precision optical sensor, allowing users to switch choice of 800, 1600, 3200, 4000 dpi on-the-fly as well as integrating 5 profiles and 36 macros to personalize the mouse at your own preference.”

    Great review ! But how does it perform on surfaces other than black ? I have the CM Storm Spawn and it is utterly useless unless it is on a black non-glossy mousepad. (sorry if you mentioned this somewhere, i did not read every word on there .. )

    Thanks.

      To be honest Punaneee I hadn’t tested the mouse on anything but a black surface although I did test it on a variety of mouse pads from cheap dollar store ones to the high-end Control-RX from CM Storm and it worked well on each one.
