CM Storm Alcor and Mizar Mice Review


The devil is in the details, so the old adage goes. The differences between the Alcor and its slight pricier brother are subtle. The first is that the DPI adjustment buttons and scroll wheel both have clear panels for lighting purposes.

The Mizar has textured sides for an even firmer grip on proceedings in those hardcore gaming moments.

Finally the cable is braided, rather than the plain on the Alcor. Small changes, but ones that just elevate the overall impression of the Mizar to a notch above the Alcor.

The Alcor has the same sensor and switches as my Steelseries Rival.
The Avago 3090 has no built in acceleration or angle snapping whatsoever, I was using a Razer Imperator before my Rival and the sensor in that had hardware angle snapping. So even if you disabled it on the software side it was still there.

Going from that to the Avago 3090 on my Rival I could instantly tell the difference.
The CM Alcor is definitely the mouse to get if you want zero acceleration and angle snapping both software and hardware wise.Quote
