CMStorm Reaper Laser Gaming Mouse
Checking out the Reaper from the left side, the front starts with a rubberized coating that continues down the rest of this side. It is there, at the front, that there is a large Clutch button as well as page forward and page back buttons. These are all inside of a large indent and a bit of a rest at the bottom for your thumb.
At the back of the Reaper, the two black side sections come to a point at the bottom as they flank the "metal" palm plate. This is offered for style (with the logo engraved into it), but it is also cool to the touch and offers a passive cooling possibility for your right hand.
The right side is completely rubberized and offers no buttons, but along with being slightly concave from bottom to top, there is also a very thin ledge that will allow users just a bit more leverage to lift the Reaper easily.
The right and left click buttons pass the large aluminum scroll wheel in the center and they terminate pointed at each other slightly with a large gap at the front of the Reaper. This allows the USB cable to run easily, as well as offering style since they add two lights to the front sections that protrude forward.
Just behind the scroll wheel are two charcoal grey buttons. These are set as default for on-the-fly DPI selection through four levels offered in the software. Something to keep in mind is that all buttons on the Reaper are reprogrammable, and even have built-in options for multimedia and things of that nature.
The Reaper uses a configuration of three PTFE feet to support the mouse and offer friction resistance to allow it to glide around better. At the top there is a sticker around the laser eye, which is where the serial number is located. At the bottom there is a rubber plug, and if you want to customize the metal palm plate, there is a screw under the plug that needs removed to do so.
That braided USB 2.0 cable we saw coming from the front of the mouse is 1.8 meters in length once the wire tie is removed. There is a gold plated connection with a housing porting the CM Storm logo, but I would have liked to have seen a Velcro strap for wire retention for those who travel with their mice.
