CM Storm是Cooler Master電競方面所做的品牌。之前除了電競用的電腦機殼外,在這次的展覽中,還秀出了遊戲用的滑鼠。初步看起來還滿炫的,而且設計上有多理念的確很符合一般遊戲用滑鼠的想法,據說會採用最好的微動開關(真的嗎?等上市時拆來研究一下好了),而價位也會很有競爭力(這是指不到三千的意思嗎?)。

廠商也有說,這不算真正的完成品,滑鼠外型還會有細節上的修正,而驅動程式也還沒有真正完成。不過就現場所了解的,應該是滿可以期待的產品。

<Computex 2009: Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse from CM Storm>
CM Storm is Cooler Master's brand name for gaming market. In addition to gaming computer cases, this time they also put out their gaming mouse. The initial impression is quite cool, and many design concepts actually fits the idea of a gaming mouse. We were told that best micro-switch will be used (really? We will see about that when its available to the market), and price will be competitive (does this mean under NT3000?)

From what the manufacturer have told us, this is not the final finished product. There will be some detail change in appearance, and the driver is not completed yet. However, from what we seem, this mouse is something to look forward to.


在握持上來說,算是大小適中吧(也就是說不會太大啦XD)
In terms of gripping, it's reasonably sized (which means not too big)



側面造型
Side view


滾輪的部分,算是一般有段式滾輪的手感。比較沒有像微軟遊戲滑鼠系列,有非常明顯的分段設計(不過我覺得詭異的是,廠商在介紹的時候,有特別提到滾輪有明顯的分段感,本來以為是有非常明顯的一段一段)。
In terms of scroll wheel, this one feels like ordinary click-to-click scroll wheel. It does not have the clear click-to-click feel, as in the Microsoft gaming mouse series (we were expecting a very distinctive click-to-click feel when scrolled, as the manufacturer have specifically mentioned that scroll wheel should have clear click-to-click feel when scrolled).



比較炫的是,鼠身會有兩處可以發光,共有七種不同顏色的選擇。當然,應該很多人都猜得出來,有呼吸燈的設計,而且也可以關掉。此外,鼠背上還可以顯示一些簡單的資訊。
There are two illuminations point in this mouse, with seven different colours to choose from. As many would have expected, there is a breath light design feature, and it can be switched off if required. Also, the back of the mouse have a display which can display some simple information.


具備配重設計
Counter weights


據說滑鼠有記憶體,可以存下玩家的設定在其他電腦上使用。驅動畫面也是相當炫,雖然尚未完成,不過從這個畫面中,大約可以知道:
‧各按鍵自訂
‧DPI具備X、Y軸分別調整的機能
‧可存五個PROFILE。
‧可錄製巨集、腳本

We have been told that this mouse have internal memory which can store user setting for switching from computer to computer. The driver's screen is kind of cool, although it's incomplete, however, from this screen capture, we know that:
* Each button is customizable
* Separate adjustable DPI resolution for X and Y axis
* Can store up to five profiles
* Can record macro and scripts
