Shape: the swapable side/top covers are a great thing for people that have no real clue; However I just attached the palm covers.
They fit in really exact all fine.
And I really love the shape. feels like a sensei/ dm1/ nixeus revel with a bit more space on the side, which fits my style way more than the above!
Cord: braided; rather thin and medium stiffness. It is ok. I guess a great cable if debraided ( gonna do that later)
Glides: Not really great. had to pick up a faster mousepad than I am used to, as the glide is rather high friction; One mglide was slightly glued off-place. Had to fix this....
Clicks: on the stiffer end, but they provide a really great experience so far. Really love the clicks. The only clicks I prefer to thisa are g900/ g303.
Side buttons: the click of the side buttons feels good as well. The buttons are quite far up, so you won't touch them accidentely.
Wheel: clear steps, but easy to move. Also the position is quite far to the front, which is my preference. great wheel!
Weight: below 100 gramms. Did not put it on a scale, so I have to trust CM with their 98 gramms, and I do trust them as it feels even lighter to me tbh.
This I guess is due to the -> Coating
Coating: Now this is something special about this mouse. It looks and feels different to what I have used before. And I have gone from dislking to absolutely loving it in about 2 hours.
The initial dislike came from making my hands sweat. I rarely have sweaty hands, but this mouse gives me sweaty hands. Now why do I still like it? I just dry my hands and the grip after feels super sticky and the mouse feels really light. The downside is I have to do that every 30 mins - 1 hour -.-
Lens ratlle: tested this after I saw that my dm1 pro also "suffers" from this -.- ( >2000 dpi first world flaw)
But the CM Master Mouse does not suffer from this.( tested on 12.000 dpi)
driver: looks rather ugly, but you can configure literraly everything one would want and not want to including, but not limited to:
-CPI and key assignment / profiles with a library for profiles
-countles LED "functions"
- surface callibration ( stock is fine)
- AND: button respond time! It is listed as a "OS Sensitivity" feature so I am a little unsure if this really does what I want; -> set it to lowest still.
- Polling rate
- and much more useles stuff
Sensor: purr-fect. PMW 3360 nothing more to say; did not find a flaw yet.
General Build Quality:
From the outside: Superb. Only tiny flaw was that mouse foot being a tiny bit out of place on my unit
Inside: did not open it ( yet)
Other stuff: It is true ambi with buttons on both sides and claw/ palm or hybrid grip. This makes it a top recommendation to lefties as well as righties people and to people who swap grip often.
Only thing I could see some people dislking is the coating, although it is one thing that makes ME personally really like thius mouse.
Not sure if I should cancel my G-Pro preorder now ......
This is really a great perfroming mouse and I really liked it when going in-game. I get a super grip on it, it is light and has a top sensor.
