CM Storm Havoc Mouse and Control-RX Surface Review
The Havoc Mouse
The top of the Havoc is coated in a very grippy rubber so often found on mice these days. The hump is pronounced and in keeping with the aim of CM Storm to produce a palm style mouse. Although the claw style is popular amongst the hardcore, the palm style is still the most popular and so it makes sense to have a mouse in the medium price bracket to use the most commonly used design.
As a right handed mouse the two sides of the Havoc are very different. The left hand side has the standard front and back buttons, with the profile switch at the rear of the three. It's well placed as you can easily switch profiles without it being somewhere you're likely to catch by accident. Below the buttons is a textured rubber section to ensure maximum control over the Havoc in all situations. It does seem strange to have the glossy piano black piece on the right hand side. Perhaps you're only supposed to move the mouse to the right..
The scroll wheel is very smooth both in looks and action. Behind the scroll wheel are two separate buttons to tweak the DPI between the four settings available within the software. The underside has a large percentage of teflon sliders. No weight adjustment on this particular model, something which is becoming more common even at this price point.
