Up Close

The Xornet comes in a standard Mouse box, which has a Velcro flap on the front allowing you to view the mouse up close as well as get a rough feel for in beneath the plastic. Packaging design is very 'CM Storm' with the dominant colours being black, white and red, and the red slashes leave you in no doubt as to the company involved.

Because the Xornet doesn't have any software the box contents are exactly all they need to be, the mouse itself and a small booklet to cover the main points.

The Xornet is a lovely blend of textures. Plastic is the majority of the mouse for cost reasons, but the places that require a lot of grip and accuracy are coated in rubber. The placement of the back and forward buttons is near perfect, with them being in very easy reach of your thumb when holding the Xornet.

Although it's very compact, the Xornet doesn't feel small even in my large hands. Designed for those who prefer a claw grip to the palm or fingertip methods, there is a nice ring-finger rest on the right hand side to aid comfort, as well as allow the branding decal.

Behind the scroll wheel are two buttons that allow you to switch between the various DPI presets. These are large enough to be found in a hurry if required, but placed well enough that you wont accidentally find yourself attempting to turn on a sixpence at 500DPI.

Given how skint everyone is these days we may see more company's taking this approach. Good honest value. My old Razer died a month back, I looked and looked but just couldn't afford something nice. I ended up with some Chinese import off eBay not bad but no where near good either! This mouse would fit the bill right now.Quote

Nice Review,

I just bought this mouse yesterday and it arrived earlier tonight at teatime. Upon seeing the mouse I thought it looked tiny compared to the 4.8 inch Gigabyte M6900 it is replacing, in fact I didnt beleave it was its advertised 4.2 inches and had to measure it

I have been playing BF3 with it for a couple of hours and it does seem a good mouse but the 2000 DPI feels a bit too slow to me and the 2 lower DPI speeds are really slow to the point of been unusable for me ( even too slow for sniping)

As I mensioned the mouse is tiny (in length) and as I have big hands it isnt really right for me but if you tend to hold your mouse with your finger tips rather than lay your hand down flat on the mouse then you should get on fine with it, that said though I didnt have any real problems playing and aiming with the mouse and pretty much got on fine with it

Oh and yes its fat Quote
