While gaming in our comfort range within the 8200 DPI, we got to about 5600 DPI before accuracy was given up for speed in our use. Blow the 5600 mark, we were able to carry on with many head shots, and were easily able to track someone across the screen. As we went a bit higher, we noticed we lifted the mouse much less often, but we found ourselves using more of a run and gun tactic, spraying bullets about as our accuracy reduced. However, this is not unlike what we find with most of the ADNS 98090 sensor based mice. What also came along with the accuracy and smoothness in the way it glided on our test surfaces is the fact that the Mizar is indeed very comfortable in the hand; it is a great solution for medium to large hand size gamers.
In the software, we did find ourselves making more Macros for the basic desktop functions that made our day go buy easier. We made profiles for things like normal PC use and internet surfing, one for Photoshop, one for Word, and, well, you get the idea. You can take the Mizar from the basic needs to as far as your imagination will allow you to come up with. Of course, this all comes into play for gaming as well, where in you have the onboard memory to keep four profiles with seven buttons each. At any one time, there can be nearly 30 functions all within the Mizar, and custom fit to suit your specific needs.
From every angle we attempt to attack the Mizar, we bounce right off pleased with our experience in all aspects. Considering you can have this comfort, grip, functionality, and customization, all for less than $50, the Mizar is quite the find in today's market. There are a select few that fit in the price category that come close to the Mizar in features, but looking at things in the broader spectrum, most of those had some sort of flaw in design or layout caused us to remove it from the desktop.
While we have been enjoying the Logitech G700s for quite some time, we still have yet to connect it back up, as we keep on using the Mizar. The Mizar is nearly half the price of the other, and it just feels better and smoother. At $49.99, there is very little reason that you should not be trying out the CMStorm Mizar ergonomic mouse - left hand users excluded.
