I personally do think that CM Storm have offered some very competitive mice at a very good price:performance ratio. For $39 - $45 dollars, it definitely poses as solid competition for the rest of the field at these price points. The ergonomic offering is a clear throwback to the IE3 and Deathadder days and poses as a strong competitor against the new Rival from SteelSeries.
If you haven’t read anything else in the review, here’s what you should take out of it. Good price, good performance, IE3 + DA feel, lower Sensei like profile, slightly smaller ergonomic chassis, and an FK like UV coating. The light-weight may be a problem for some, and the lift-off distance on the Alcor may also have to be factored into account as well. As to the Mizar 9800 implementation, I feel like it’s one of the better ones and really is as good as it gets for a laser sensor. For those being anal about that aspect, the Alcor would be your mouse of choice with the s3090 optical sensor.
Would this be my primary mouse for gaming? The Kana v2 unfortunately will still hold that spot. For me, mice are always battling on a king of the court. It remains king till someone dethrones it, which, happens more often than not. Of course, some reclaim their title more often than not as well. Nonetheless, two solid offerings from CM Storm, and really looking forward to how they may implement the Pixelart 3310 in any of their new mice in the coming 2014.
