CM Storm Recon Mouse, Pad, and Bungee Introduction:
Cooler Master's Storm lineup has a few new peripheral members. Normally I might review just a single mouse or single keyboard, or perhaps a few at a time, but today I have something a little different for you: a mouse and some mouse accessories. You might ask what accessories a common mouse might have – a mouse pad of course, and a cable holding friend. Today I have for you the CM Storm Recon mouse, the CM Speed-RXL mouse pad, and the CM Storm Skorpion mouse bungee. I'll try to bring the focus on the mouse and show off the other two as accessories to apply to any mouse you may choose.
The CM Storm Recon is a mouse designed for the ambidextrous gamer. To me, that just means duplicate buttons on the right side (I'm a right-hander) and an overall symmetrical body form. It has on-the-fly DPI settings ranging from 800-4000 as well as five customizable profiles with the included software download. The rubberized grip, precise optical sensor and three individual multi-color LED zones make this mouse an interesting find. Let's hope it performs as well as it sounds.
The Speed-RXL is one of the CM Storm common mouse pads. It is the large version of the pad coming in at 450 x 350 x 5 mm of natural rubber with a microscopic synthetic mesh. I've had my hands on one before and now I have two!
The CM Storm Skorpion mouse bungee is a new take on the Razer Mouse bungee, taking on the appearance of an actual scorpion with a tail connecting to your mouse. The concept is pretty simple; for any of you who may have gotten your mouse cord caught on the edge of your keyboard or desk in the middle of an epic boss fight; you understand that the Skorpion holding your mouse cable is not a bad idea. The notion is that you'll have exactly the amount of cable you need, exactly where you need it. I'm looking forward to seeing if it truly works – I know my keyboard edge tends to be the keeper of my mouse now, but perhaps this shall be a better solution.
Overall, I've got three great products to spoil you with today – let's hope they are something to mark your Christmas list with this year.
CM Storm Closer Look:
A box showed up from my delivery guy with three neat little packages inside. The mouse, mouse pad, and Skorpion cable holder (this thing really does look like a scorpion even in the box!). These three boxes really follow the CM Storm-theme styled in red and black – it really almost looks like an intentional gift set just in time for Christmas.
