Top customer reviews
-Flawless optical engine
-NO inherent hardware based acceleration
-Tracks extremely well
-Adjustable DPI in 4 flavors
-5 hardware profiles, 4 able to be customized by user
-Color changing LEDs. Mouse wheel, DPI buttons, CM Storm Logo. Able to light each individually with different colors or turn them off and on, continuous light, dimmer, and flash on button presses. color adjustable with RGB and brightness sliders. near infinite combinations. My BF3 profile is Teal and Orange and Torchlight 2 is Primary colors, etc.
-Can store 100 profiles on PC and load swap them out to mouse at any time very easily.
-Ambidextrous design with 2 thumb buttons on each side of mouse (if you're flexible, you can make use of them) (if you hold the mouse strangely and find yourself inadvertently pressing the opposing side's buttons, you can disable them)
-Can program long macros for MMOs
-Can adjust LOD (makes a small difference, but it's definitely there)
-Can adjust the response time of button clicks
-LMB and RMB are Omron switches and feel absolutely amazing
Scroll wheel is awesome and HUGE, the button requires less force to activate than a Logitech G5 and scrolls better, too
Cons (small gripes and nowhere NEAR being game breaker)
-software is powerful but not intuitive (takes a few minutes to understand that you NEED to press apply after every change, and profile changes are strange to get accustomed to. Once figured out, though, it's EXTREMELY easy so fear not)
-would be great to have fully customizable DPI settings like Logitech mice rather than 800, 1600, 3200, 4000
Got the mouse in a week and a half ago. Have been getting used to the shape coming from an ergonomic Logitech G5. Loving 2 thumb buttons on each side. With some minor finger acrobatics I am able to make use of the opposing side's buttons.
The shape of this mouse is great, but I am having some growing pains with it since it's ambidextrous and wedge shaped.
Think of the Logitech G5s shape lying flat as a half-circle out of the desktop. This mouse is more of the shape of a rat's body, skinny in front and thick in back.
I am a fingertip gripper primarily so this actually works well for me. This mouse is suited well for palmers with small hands, clawers with small/medium hands, and fingertippers with medium/large hands.
Coming from Logitech G5 I was used to a heavy mouse (even without the weight cartridge installed) This weighs aout 30 grams less and is about 3/4" shorter. Fingertipping as I do it was a blessing in disguise because I no longer have the mouse smack my palm on quick downward strokes and picking it up (after adjusting to its rear heavy orientation) is a breeze.
I didn't think I'd love this mouse as much as I do... but man, this thing's a beast. I heartily recommend this mouse for anyone trying to play FPS games in any capacity since it has no built in acceleration. RTS games are a breeze with it because of macro programming and 5 hardware bound profiles. Plenty of side buttons (if you're flexible enough) mean MMOs aren't left out of the loop. You can reprogram any button on the mouse to whatever you want. You don't even have to have profile/DPI flipping buttons if you don't want to and can set profiles to have 1-4 DPI modes if you require them. RTS and ARPG you usually won't need more than the 1 DPI setting so that frees up 2 buttons for you right there. Experiment with it to find out the best setup for you. It's very open to that. If you screw a profile up just go into the software and delete it.
Give this mouse a shot. It's a great offering from a company that's really maturing when it comes to peripherals. This is easily one of their best efforts to date.
I mainly use this mouse for Battlefield 3 and other fps games. The sensor on it is near perfect, I found it to be the only one on par with the g400 and it's definitely better than the spawn. I've tried a lot of mice before but the recon and the g400 were the best and most accurate, except that I hated the grip on the g400. (Sensor 10/10)
The software is fully customizable. You can switch profiles/polling rate/dpi instantly, also you can change the LOD between 1-5 and much much more. (Software 10/10)
The only thing that doesn't make this the perfect mouse for me is the grip. I'm not saying it's bad. It's still pretty good and better than many other mice I've tried. You can use it as palm/claw/fingertip grip, but my only complain about it is that it's a little too high in the back. Also it would've been better if it had a little bit of curve under the side buttons instead of being flat. (Grip 8/10)
Overall I'm really glad I gave this mouse a try. I tried over 20 mice to find one that performs like the g400 but has smaller shape/better grip, and I finally found it..
Where the bulk of the problems came was the with the software. Having used the mouse for a few months with satisfaction that it was doing close to what I needed it to, I became very unhappy when I decided to install the driver. I was just looking for a little more customization, but I found that It came a WAY to steep a price.
After Installing the driver I began to experience mouse smoothing/lag and very slight, almost unoticable variable acceleration (+&-). This is the biggest deal breaker for me, as my favorite games are are arena type fps games which require you to have 1 -1 aiming with no smoothing,lag, or bad response times. Now, you might be thinking "why not just get rid of the software driver?". three reasons.
1.) I did get rid of it
2.) This causes problems because the button response time is not set low enough by default and the only way to set it lower is with the firmware.
3.) Most importantly, I cannot seem to completely uninstall the firmware leaving me still suffering from smoothing/lag and weird random acceleration problems.
Another MAJOR problem with the software and the mouse is the lift off distance. This setting is utterly broken. Seriously. It breaks my games if i put it at anything but 3. The mouse jumps all over the place in games if I try to use this setting, making them totally unplayable. This is terrible for claw grip/hybrid grip gamers like me because the lift off distance is way to high by default.
I'd also like to note that all these problems happened with 2 separate computers that I own. Meaning It cannot be ruled out as just a computer specific case.
I'm sorry to hear that you were having issues with your Recon Mouse. I'm going to help answer each issue/point you have presented. As with optical vs laser, each mouse is unique when it comes to tracking. Some are better than others and sometimes the type of surface is an important factor as well.
As far as your issues with the software and firmware, we have since released a new version for each. Please visit the product page to download these items and see if that resolves the issues.
