If you want the best performance, it's time to gear up. In part two of our gaming accessories roundup, we're checking out the best gaming mice that can give you the killer edge.
Cooler Master CM Storm Inferno
The Inferno is a pretty slick mouse with a couple of cool features. The first thing we noticed is the nice wide, ribbed scroll wheel. You’ll never mess up a weapon swap with that kind of rubber under your finger. The second thing is the sheer number of buttons on the mouse. Including thumb buttons, DPI switches, macro buttons and the secret weapon we’ll come to later, there’s 11 things that go click.
The secret weapon is a funny thing; it’s a “Turbo” button to the right of the main left mouse button. Using the software you can configure this button to mimic the fast clicking of any other button. It’s like the old Turbo buttons on the cheap knock-off Nintendo controllers of the early ‘90s, and I still think it’s cheating! On the right mouse button there’s a similarly placed button for the execution of a single pre-recorded macro.
That aside, even though it is shaped reasonably symmetrically, the mouse only has thumb buttons for right handers. But for right handers, it’s pretty comfortable. We’d read some reviews of this mouse that claimed there were some issues with the sensor in general use, but our tests showed it as perfectly normal all around.Available from Cooler Master, retailing for $65.
