CM Storm Recon - Page 32

post #311 of 455
Looking to move up to the Recon, currently have uncomfortable episodes with my current Xornet.

To those who currently own/have owned the Recon, does the DPI switching feature still work while driverless (let's say I don't install the software for it, just the plug and play Windows drivers)?

update : since we have only 5-6 recon users on this forum i confirmed the polling rate myself issue by having a little chat with a proffesional hardware reviewer.

Average polling rate fluctuates between 427-429hz constantly but that doesn't seem to affect cursor quality or anything, feels much more precise than the zowie 3090 mice if you ask me, especially on rough black colored surfaces like my hien soft, cable is kinda stiff but still better than spawn and IMO 1.1, i wanted it to be like logitech g400/ zowie EC 1st gen( AM/evos have sligthly stiffer cables ) but i can live with that tongue.gif sensor keeps up with low sensitivities just fine and the LOD is adjusted to just over 1CD ( 2/5 setting )

Mouse is indeed heavier than ec2 ( ~ 15 grams more ) but due to its unique symmetrical shape and smaller mouse feet i can be much more "agile" in-game, i can also lift and reposition it when i have to with no effort.

Keep in mind that i have small hands, my fingers are kinda short and chubby so spawn was pretty a good fit for me, minus the extra stiff cable, very high LOD compared to zowie mice and some pinky pain during those long fast swipes over the mousepad redface.gif

Hi I have had the CM Storm recon mouse since end of Jan, found it to be the best mouse so far as I am a leftie this was the best for price and fit for my size of hands, with regards to changing colours on the LED I have set 4 profiles for each of the settings ie 800, 1600, 3200, 4000 and set a LED colour for each and set button 4,5 to change profiles. redface.gif

How is this mouse in regards to the CM Storm Xornet size wise? I have small hands but the Xornet I have is really too small for me. I'd really like something bigger.

I can confirm that my Recon also has a polling problem. Tested other mice with the same software and got nice consistent results. The Recon is all over the place. They haven't updated their firmware or software in almost 6 months, so I have no idea if this is ever likely to get fixed.
post #318 of 455
So I figured out something a little bit strange. My Recon's polling rate normalizes a lot when I turn off all the lights. I have a good power supply and ithe mouse is plugged directly into one of the motherboard usb ports, but I still had this problem. I was testing the built-in profile 1, just to see if it also had the polling problem....and it didn't.

I figured out that I was on the 800dpi sensitivity, which has all the lights off on the default profile. When I switched to a higher DPI that had lights on, my polling rate would go all over the place again. I set my custom profile to have no lights, and now all DPI steps have acceptable polling characteristics..

Weird problem, but if this is bothering anyone, you can try it yourself.

Makes sense to me. The voltage is going all over the place when you have 4 LEDs running along with the sensor. Keep in mind that when you actuate the switches that affects it to.

That is why I would suggest a mouse only use one indicating LED at the scroll wheel or under the mouse. Otherwise, I would want no LED lighting effects. One reason why I bought a Razer BE and Zowie mice. I suggested this in the CM Storm thread earlier.

Performance is far more important than flashy LEDs. Said it many times about BST's mouse.

The polling rate thing is interesting. I can't say I've noticed any issues with tracking on my recon though, and this was the first I've seen of the issue.

The recon has quickly become my new favorite mouse. I had to improvise a bit since my hands do not sweat at all, so I used a bit of electrical tape on the sides and buttons to get a better grip. easy to control, cord is good, buttons feel crisp, I am happy.

I have had an issue with the software giving me a write error until I unplug and re-plug the mouse after a reboot. Has anyone run into that? Not a big deal for me, since the mouse retains settings, but a minor annoyance when I want to change 1 or 2 things. It's possible that issue is in this thread somewhere, if it is, my apologies.
