In the vast sea of high-end gaming peripherals, it takes something special to set yourself apart from the crowd. This is especially true in mice. Here, not only do you have to source what you as a business feel are the best components for all users, without closing off some of your potential market, but you also need to bring forth a product that is hands down better than the rest in what is offered. Especially in the feature set, since no one really wants a two button mouse these days. Maybe the most important thing out of all is that when developing a new "gaming" mouse, the tracking and accuracy of the sensor are what will make or break any design in a matter of minutes using them.
Now Cooler Master has been doing quite well at this sort of strategy for years, and with the newer team at CM Storm, we have seen many products that show they are on point with what most of the people out there want. Here, we have the Recon and Havok we saw not too long ago; even when looking at both versions of the Sentinel mice, it was easy to see that they offered the components, features, aesthetics, and comfort that users desire. Best yet about these designs, is that not one of them has had any sort of a price point that would give any reason to pass these devices up when looking for a new mouse.
Cooler Master and the CM Storm team are back at it, offering another mouse to their lineup. What brings us here today is their new mix of metal, rubberized coatings, and a wider, flatter design that will allow any users to enjoy the grip afforded with this device. Stick around and have a look at their newest mouse, the Reaper, and see if they have come up with another success, or if this is just a well thought out design that against all odds, finds a way to somehow be less than what we expect.
There is a lot to cover with this new design, and it is about time to get into it, so let's do just that and see what the Reaper is truly about.
