When it comes to gaming a good mousing surface can make all the difference. With the right amount of slip and grip on a mouse pad you can get way more precision, which equates to better shots in an FPS especially when going for that all important "headshot." CoolerMaster, as you know, makes many cooling products but they also have many great products for gamers like cases, peripherals, and surfaces that are specifically targeted toward this audience. The company even made it into a separate brand called Storm and today I am reviewing the CoolerMaster Storm CS-M Weapon of Choice. Featured are two versions of this mouse pad, this Weapon of Choice being an M4 and the other being an AK.
So let's take a closer look at our M4 here. Our M4 comes packaged in a rather small and modest box. What is great is that if you happened to be at a store browsing between different mouse pads CoolerMaster actually puts a preview of the surface on the outside of the box to let you feel what it is actually like without having to open the box. Apart from that the one side of the box tells you how CoolerMaster rates the quality of this mouse pad. One of the other sides consists of where to get support from CoolerMaster in multiple languages. Finally, the last side we'll talk about lists the specifications and features of the mouse pad. I bet you're itching to actually see what this pad looks like so be my guest.
The design is rather awesome I must say. What I mean by design is the art on the front looks really great. As you can see, it is the depiction of a silhouette of an M4 along with a flying bullet and what appears to be some black blood spray. Pretty graphic I guess and it's probably something you wouldn't buy for your kid either, but for an avid gamer who likes FPSes this is probably a great art design. The top surface also feels comfortable when you move your finger across it. When rubbing it lengthwise it slides across smooth but when going the other way it feels more rough and seems to generate a little more friction going in that direction. On the back, of course, is a rubber grip that is designed to not move unless you pick up the pad. On another note, the pad is rather light so you should have no problem wrapping it up and taking it with you to LAN parties.
Now let's move on and discuss performance and some specs and features of the mouse.
