CMStorm Mizar Ergonomic Laser Gaming Mouse Review

Packaging and Documentation




Dressed in typical CM Storm packaging, we find the Mizar in a black box with its image highlighted with a scene of the cosmos through a red filter. The Cooler Master logo, and CMStorm name and logo are featured in silver print at the top, along with the 8200 DPI notification. At the bottom, we find the Mizar offers on-the-fly DPI, seven programmable buttons, and reinforced rubber grips on either side.




The front panel uses Velcro pads to hold it down, but once opened, it offers a view of the Mizar under plastic on the right. The inside of the front cover has an image of the Mizar, a short list of features, and ends with a statement of what CMStorm intends to deliver with this mouse.




On this thinner side of the packaging, we again have the silver print at the top for the naming and logos, and that is followed by regional information for the Cooler Master offices. Just above the bar code, they also offer a web address to visit for live help.




As we spin around to the back of the box, we find a large image of the mouse on the top half. Around it, there are images and text covering the Omron switches, the high impact encoder wheel, color options, the Avago sensor, the right handed design, and the on-the-fly DPI buttons. At the bottom, we again find the features listed, but this time in nine languages other than English.




In as many languages as they could fit, Cooler Master tells us that this is a gaming mouse, and to go to for more information.




Inside the box, we find the Mizar packed between two layers of plastic formed to fit the mouse. This protects the mouse from moving and getting scratched, and the higher side prevents impacts from causing damage. Our Mizar arrived in great shape.




Under the mouse there is a manual of sorts to have a look at before plugging the mouse into the PC. This really only covers the basics like connectivity, where to get the drivers, and lists the features of the mouse again for easy reference.




Likely the second most important thing to find in the paperwork outside of where to go to download the drivers is the terms and conditions section for the warranty; at the bottom of that page, you will find the Mizar is protected against defects for a period of two years.
