CM Storm Inferno Gaming Mouse Review

Product on Review: CM Storm Inferno
Manufacturer and Sponsor: CM Storm
RRP: 49.95

Going back a few months ago there were rumours surrounding the departure of many of the CM Storm staff to form a new brand named Bit Fenix, this was sad news. Personally I really liked the new product range from the Cooler Master division CM Storm, the Sentinel was a firm favourite of mine and of course there is the unforgettable Scout and Sniper gaming cases. With this news, many thought that CM Storm would certainly fold, but today this has been proved wrong.

Back in March we saw the prototype for the CM Storm Inferno and today marks the day of its launch. The Inferno was due to debut on August 12th but German and American review websites decided they would break the embargo and Cooler Master were forced to bring forward the date of release.

Nevertheless it is here, and today we bring you an exclusive review of this brand new gaming mouse. The Inferno takes advantage of a 4000 DPI twin laser sensor, 128kb of onboard Senintel-X memory and offers gamers a selection of buttons including a 'Storm Tactics Multiplayer' button.

CM Storm's Take

The CM Storm Inferno was designed from the ground up to be a gaming mouse with MMOs in mind. With no less than 11 buttons, nine of which are programmable, you have access to everything you need just a simple click away. In addition, with a lift-off distance of 2mm, 1000Hz polling, 1ms response time and a max speed of 115 inches per second and you have a well rounded gaming mouse. The Inferno has also been ergonomically designed for maximum comfort over extended periods of time. The CM Storm Inferno is built for winners, no matter the game.
