(I play on 1800 DPI)
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
i love my xornet
i play on 500/1000 dpi and whip this thing around like a ******* boss (on a razer goliathus speed) and it tracks like one too.
i get sick headshots in planetside 2/TF2, slay mad zombies in L4D2 and slay orks in the name of the emperor in Space Marines. those are about the only shooters i play. i mostly play sc2/dota2.
ive had 0 issues with the mouse after about a month of ownership.
i have a medium/large size hand and use a claw grip, it fits the style very naturally and comfortably, the meaty rubber grips on the side ensure 0 slippage.
it claims to have omrons and I believe it does (i've owned a sensei and feenix nascita which both also have omrons) the clicks are snappy and tactile, a real joy to press.
this includes all the buttons, sides and middle mouse clicks are all very clicky and responsive. the middle mouse has a very nice bouncy click to it and doesnt require much force. the scrolling action however, leaves something to be desired. its a soft scroll and you can feel when it turns over but theres something about it that im not particularly crazy about. neither good nor bad, just a note.
its has the dpi adjustment on top of the mouse (preferred by me) because I do switch from 500 to 1000 in shooters. they are also very clicky and tactile to press so you know when you switch (besides the obvious).
the rubber on left and right clicks is a very smooth powdery finish, it feels very nice and can track oil from your fingers (after a long play session) but this is common for mice with these rubber coats. just a quick swipe with a towel or t-shirt and its gone.
the underside of the mouse has two big teflon feet one on the top and one on the bottom. it glides smooth on the goliathus speed and show little to no sign of wear after a month of heavy use.
the optical sensor shines a big bright blinding red when you turn the mouse over. there are some gaps in between the plastic right between the left and right mouse buttons. the LED shines so bright you can see it through the gap. only noticeable when your face is right over the mouse, its almost like looking down through a fissure with lava flowing below.
the rest of the mouse thats not rubber is just a regular hard plastic, not glossy in the texture but very close (if not spot on) in texture to my Microsoft IMO 1.1 and all black. with white cm storm logo at the butt of the mouse and XORNET across the ring finger rest in all white. it feels very nice and dry all the time, even after intense playing and my hand gets sort of clammy (i hate that word).
i was using a feenix nascita for about the whole fall and winter and a vanilla steelseries sensei before that (which died on me). i have not picked up the nascita since i've switched to this mouse nor have i even thought of switching to it for any reason. thats a $100 laser mouse. this thing was $20. ill probably just buy a couple more of these because they're so cheap and just be set for life. i really like the shape and buttons. the main reason i picked this over the spawn was because i liked the lower DPI settings and NO DRIVERS. i also liked the all black instead of the red on the spawn.
i highly recommend the cm storm xornet to anyone on a budget (or just anyone) or just someone looking for something new to mess around with. for $20 you really cant go wrong.Edited by discoprince - 3/24/13 at 4:01pm
