CM Storm Mizar Gaming Mice Exclusive Review

CM Storm Mizar Gaming Mice Exclusive Review


Inspired by classic, right-handed, and ergonomic styles, CM Storm Mizar is a gaming mouse with a natural contoured grip designed for maximum comfort. The ergonomic shape almost feels like it is an extension of your palm (we know that sounds weird but it really is that comfortable!) which would be quite beneficial if you consider the long hours you’ll will be gaming for your all-nighters. It has an Avago 9800 laser sensor and up to 8200 DPI. Its 7 fully programmable buttons that allow you to access certain functions as quickly as possible. It is available on Flipkart and Snapdeal for close to MRP 4499/-, you can head out to the respective sites to grab hold of one 🙂 Now lets get started…

One of the first things you immediately notice about this mouse is that it not only looks very comfortable, but it actually is once you get your hands on it. It has nothing ‘showy’ about it, in fact looks very simple and really is nothing much to it. Something about it, maybe its the design, the feel, the material, or all those things put together that makes this mouse very functional and quite minimalist in nature.


The left side of the mouse is covered by a large rubber grip and has two large buttons which can be assigned to have different, but by default act as ‘previous page’ and ‘next page’ while browsing the web. There are 7 buttons which you can assign macros which consists of the scroll wheel click, left & right click, two side buttons on the left, two LED/dpi toggling buttons right above the scroll wheel.

The right side of the mouse too is pretty much covered with a piece of rubber grip. This rubber padding is to give extra grip and control which is quite useful during intense gaming sessions.  As for the bottom side of the mouse, the stuff is pretty standard and nothing new to it, after all how many times do you look under there right?


Another plus point to this mouse is the gold plated USB connector that, quite honestly is used on majority of gaming peripherals. This is supposed to minimize signal transfer latency. Pretty intense stuff right? But like its not something you will notice, but it does keep your USB connector looks better by giving it a layer of protection that is strong against oxidation.

This mouse, like the Roccat Kone Pure Optical has braided cables. Again something that will ensure long life and durability of the mouse.

Our Verdict

A very good gaming mouse, which has a lot to offer and at a very reasonable price. As we said before, not much of a looker, but really is worth every penny you pay for it.
