Summary: There is no mice like this. Only Fatal1ty comes very close, which is a much lower quality product. It could have been so much better but the software part is terrible. However if you are looking for simple and adequately priced mouse for FPS games, this is it. Pros: - Great shape. - Great texture and nicely placed rubber pads. - Perfect for claw or finger tip grip. - Good size for smaller desks like mine.
Summary: This mouse works very well for me and I only have reservations about two things: 1) There is no way to save profiles of button assignments. I am an old guy on disability with limited ambulatory ability and difficulty reading. I hate TV so instead of knitting or something (grin) I have taken up playing video games as a way to pass the days.
Summary: I bought this mouse because I'm currently playing a new online game in closed beta. I am a very casual gamer. I tried a more expensive mouse from logitech but returned it because I was not impressed. This mouse is not perfect but for the $ spent I feel it is a great deal. It's comfortable to use. My only complaint is I don't like the positioning of the buttons by the thumb. I wish they were lower to make it easier to push them without moving my thumb too much.
Summary: Just purchased the CM Storm Spawn and my initial impressions: the mouse looks great, the dpi buttons are nicely placed, the "forward and back" side mouse buttons are also nicely placed. The mouse feels very solid and sturdy. Coming from an oldddd Razer Diamondback 3G (still my favorite mouse ever) the ring finger rest took a little getting used to. The mouse fits nicely in a full palm grip, but also a claw grip.
Summary: I purchased this mouse to replace my aging Razer Diamondback. Even though the Razer is large I still tend to use it in a somewhat claw style. I had tried the Logitech G9x and found its shape and feel not quite to my liking and the middle mouse button way too firm (I use it a lot for working in a UNIX environment). The CM Storm Spawn is similar in size to the Logitech but seems a bit more natural in my hand.
