Introduction to the Cooler Master Storm Xornet Gaming Mouse

Cooler Master is like most other companies as they are trying their hands at other components, not just cases and power supplies. In order to satisfy the gamers and enthusiasts out there, Cooler Master is taking aim at keyboards and mice. As of not they have release a few gaming mice that we loved here at Pro-Clockers, one in which is sitting on my desktop and has been since we reviewed it and that is the Inferno. And the Spawn is sitting on the wife’s desk top, it matches the red build our system.

Today, we will be tackling a new mouse from the makers of the above, which is called the Xornet. The Xornet is a lesser feature packed version of the above but in a smaller packaging. The Xornet gives the user to game on a budget also it’s the perfect complement to a gaming laptop.

 Cooler Master’s take on the Xornet

The Xornet gaming mouse is lightweight, ergonomically designed and forged with a reassuringly solid design. It is built for professional FPS gamers that prefer a claw grip. Engineered to execute precise in-game tactics, Xornet comes loaded with a high-performance 2000 DPI sensor that includes on-the-fly adjustment, an ultra-step wheel encoder – providing extremely accurate scrolling, and Japanese-made Omron micro-switches that are meant to endure up to five million clicks. Presented in a eye-catching crimson stealth black high-gloss finish, Xornet lends its truly breathtaking appeal as the focal point of a gamer’s setup.

Features

  • Precision Anti-Drift Control Sensor
    Xornet utilizes the latest high performance optical engine ensuring extreme stability and reliability. Based on an anti-drift architecture, it delivers stable and precise tracking in mouse lift and drop scenarios. Angle snapping can be enabled or disabled for exact swift crosshair movements enabling amazing skill-shots and incredible aiming accuracy.
  • Omron Micro Switches (5 million clicks)
    Only the best is good enough! Omrons patented ultra tactile micro switches enable unsurpassed tactile feedback and speed. You will be able to reach an incredible amount of clicks per second while still feeling and controlling every single click. Omron guarantees a minimum amount of 5 million clicks for these highest grade switches, giving Xornet an extended life-span even for hardcore gamers.
  • DPI On the Fly
    Conveniently placed under the scroll wheel, you can switch the DPI resolution between 500, 1000 and 2000 within an instant.
  • Rubberized Anti-Slip Design
    A Special sweat proof rubber compound on both sides of Xornet gives you maximum grip. Even in heated hour long matches and during quick lift and drop moves you retain full control while repositioning and racing Xornet over the mousepad.

Closer look

At $29.99, the CM Storm Xornet as many if not more features as other mice in the same price range. The Xornet offers three preset DPI setting which are 500, 1000 and 2000. The settings can be adjusted on the fly. A very nice range for the causal PC user to the moderate gamer. The advance would like to explore the 160o plus range which this mouse barely tackles. CM also gives the Xornet a 5 million click rating which would satisfy the user for quite some time. They use Omrons switches to make such a guarantee.

The Xornet is approximately about ¾ the size of a standard mouse but it does share the physical appearance of a good gaming mouse. The mouse is a racy black with minimum buttons and rubber side grips. The mouse is nice and round and will take up most of your palm no matter how big your hands are.

Starting with the front of the mouse we have the typical scroll wheel with two buttons that will allow the user to change the DPI settings on-the-fly. The two left/right mouse buttons are large enough to allow for exact clicking while gaming.

Here we have the forward and back buttons. The rubberized sides are long enough to allow the user to keep a firm grip on the mice during frag sessions.

Underneath the mouse we see just what makes the Xornet sting and that would be a 2000 DPI laser which also has an imaging processing rate of 6700 FPS and 5.8 Megapixels/Second. The maximum speed is 160 IPS. The Xornet will slide nicely across your mouse pad using a set of Teflon pads.

The USB cable is just over six feet long making it a non-issue when contacting it to the PC. It is rubber coated and not sleeved like many other mice are. A magnetic core is used to keep noise out.

Conclusion

What are so neat about the Cooler Master Storm Xornet are its gaming features in such a compact size. CM wanted to give the user a great little gaming mouse that is easy to make from one place to another and don’t cost an arm and a leg. At $30, the Xornet should and will give other mice in the same price range some very good competition. The DPI settings range from a modest 500 DPI to a nice fragging level of 2000 DPI. Are these extreme levels? No, but $30 chances are you will not find a good mouse made for gaming with a higher DPI range.

There are a couple of things we would like to see in the Xornet but chances are if they were added the dollar amount will climb well above the $30 asking price. These would be a weight system to add a couple of ounces to the mouse and a software package to allow you to adjust the DPI.
