Maybe good for shooters but not MMOs and everything else

Summary: Obviously this isn't a dedicated MMO mouse but it still is marketed as such. For regular computer use and MMOs it proved to be a disappointment. It's programming software is unrefined and a slug compared to the competition. I had to return it once for a warranty replacement and now the scroller wheel squeaks. This maybe a shooter's gem but to me it's mediocre compared to other choic3es out there for both purposes.
Summary: The good: The mouse feels very good, have a good weight and is ergonomic. Have a lot of configurable buttons, and those are very easy to access. The software included is easy to configure. The mouse look really nice, the red color looks pretty good, and the flame is nice. The bad: The pictures in the website shows a wireless mouse, also when you search for wireless gaming mouse, this is one of the first displayed. But surprise!!! This is NOT WIRELESS.
Summary: I was in the market for a new mouse. I wanted something that had a couple additional macro keys, but I didn't want something like the M90 or the Naga. I stumbled on this mouse pretty much on accident and even though it had limited reviews, they were favorable, and I have been happy with other Cooler Master products in the past, even if they were not things like mice or keyboards, so I thought I would take the gamble and give it a try. I am very pleased with this mouse.
Buyer beware-Not a wireless mouse. Not a bad mouse though.

Summary: Super pissed off that i spent my money on a mouse that looks wireless but isn't. Definently getting a refund. Edit: I did use it and it was a smooth mouse but still They should put "wired gaming mouse" in the description. It is misleading to show it without a wire and not at least say its wired in the link. Over all I liked the mouse but at that time I was on the go and needed a nice wireless mouse that could work well for gaming. I ended up buying a Razer Orochi.
A good mouse with a shape ONLY meant for palm grippers

Summary: I have been using a trusty Logitech mx-518 for years and decided it might be time for an upgrade. While shopping at a CompUSA, I noticed this mouse, the CM Storm Inferno on a really good sale for $39.99 and decided to give it a try! I was actually quite impressed with what the mouse has to offer. I can't say I agree with some of the negative reviews here as I had a good experience with the mouse (except for two things I will explain later).
Summary: I got this mouse at a pretty good sales price. The mouse is well-built and comfortable to rest my hand on it, depending on the size of your hands. It is a very good gaming mouse in terms of quality. The only problem that I have so far is the macro function of the mouse. It helps to have so many macro keys on the mouse sometimes.
Pros: Comfortable Grab, Durable Design, Macro Function
Cons: Heat after Long Time Usage, Macro Failure after Hard Press, Right-handed Design
Summary: This is my first gaming mouse, and the mouse itself is excellent. However, the software in un-usable. It advertises 11 programmable buttons, but the software only lets you reprogram 9 of them, and 3 of those are left, right, and middle click. You therefore end up with 6-7 programmable buttons. I'm getting a Microsoft SideWinder X8 for more money--at least I know that Intellipoint is well-written (I came from a $9 Comfort Optical Mouse 3000).
Summary: I've been looking for a good gaming mouse for quite a while now. Found this mouse here on Amazon and proceeded to look around the web for reviews of the mouse. Reviews seemed favorable and the price wasn't too bad so I took a chance on it. Note that I had been considering various Logitech mice as well as a Razer Naga. I was turned off by the Naga because of various reports of hardware QA problems and questionable support.
Summary: This mouse was a pleasure to use, I bought this because this was the only mouse that had an ambidextrous design mouse without side buttons getting in the way of how I hold my mouse. Tracks well and have no complaints about performance Unfortunately, the scroll wheel needs improvement, I am not exaggerating when I say that you need to literally push hard to middle click. Once in a while, the scroll wheel would get stuck while scrolling for a a good second or so.
Pros: All the bells and whistles you would want in a gaming mouse for a great value, Can be used with a palm grip or fingertip
