CM Storm Spawn Review

Product on Review: CM Storm Spawn
Manufacturer and Sponsor: CM Storm (Cooler Master)
MSRP: 30 / 40 / $46

Just a week into 2011 and we have a brand new release from CM Storm. Last year we were graced with the Inferno gaming mouse and during fall 2009 the Sentinel gaming mouse both of these gaming grade mice impressed us here at Vortez and scooped up our coveted awards. But this time we have a new kid on the block, namely the CM Storm Spawn. Designed specifically for gaming professionals that prefer the claw grip, the Spawn, on paper is an interesting peripheral. The Spawn comes loaded with a 3500 DPI optical sensor that also includes on-the-fly DPI adjustment, manageable buttons, macro assignment and Japanese Omron micro-switches to further prolong life-span - all in an eye-catching red anodized finish that will certainly draw in eyes.

Although CM Storm haven't launched a great deal of products since establishment, we are always excited when they do bring something new to the table. So, the Spawn looks to be a very promising rodent with plenty to talk about. So lets waste no more time, and get straight into the review.

CM Storm's Take:
The Spawn gaming mouse is lightweight, ergonomically designed and forged with a reassuringly solid design. It is built for professional FPS gamers that prefer the claw grip.
