The most recent firmware and hardware seems to be more stable than in the past on windows 10, alleviating usability concerns.
The cord drag keeps it at 4/5 stars for me.
Still the only modern mouse that is comparable with the spawn storm.
- Update -
I knocked one star off for the software. It is buggy as heck.
1) It reassigns button assignments on windows startup
2) It messes with the lift off distance on windows startup, occasionally reducing it to the point the mouse no longer tracks
3) It always starts when windows starts, even when you turn that setting off
4) It caused my Corsair K70 to not be recognized by the Corsair software
Here is what you'll want to do:
Install the software, then set your mouse up the way you want to. Then immediately uninstall the software. You may want to leave a button assigned to the LOD tuning function (I'll explain that below) in case you still run into problems. I've not started up my PC too many times with the software uninstalled, so the LOD issue may be resolved by keeping the software uninstalled. The issues seem to be isolated to when the software starts up.
If you assign a button to LOD tuning you can adjust your LOD without the software. It feels like it actually adjusts it to a lower distance in fact. Once your button is assigned, hold that button for three seconds, then release it. The mouse wheel lighting should begin flashing. You can then adjust the LOD up or down by moving the mouse wheel up or down. The lighting will change accordingly (blue, green, red). Once you're done, click the LOD tuning button again.
It is a gigantic struggle to find a good fingertip grip mouse. The CM Spawn was my go to for years and years. But it lacked features and had an optical sensor that was not up to par with modern gaming mice like the Logitech G502.
-Shape and feel-
Exact same shape as the spawn. Fantastic for a fingertip grip, even for a wider hand. You grip with only your thumb and pinky and guide the mouse with your grip plus your ring finger. You get the stability of a wider, larger mouse, but keep the finger mobility of a smaller mouse. The unique ring finger rest allows your ring finger to guide the mouse while on top of it rather than gripping from the side.
I have super sweaty hands, and am not a huge fan of the new rubber style on the side, but it's much softer than the spawn so I think most people will like it.
The main mouse buttons feel about the same. A bit sturdier, though that could be because of the newness of the mouse. The side buttons and DPI buttons all feel much crisper and more solid. The DPI buttons have a tad bit of wobble, but not enough to detract.
The mouse wheel, although not nearly as luxurious as the weighted G502, is much more solid than the Spawn and has a more solid mouse click. It's much less "clicky" than the spawn and feels more "meaty". The wheel itself is much better as well. The body of the mouse is more textured than the Spawn. Not the mouse buttons, but the actual body. It's more matte than gloss. But odds are your palm isn't going to contact this thing enough for this to be a difference. I would say it feels a bit better when using a palm grip.
-Tracking and Sensor-
I don't have a very scientific analysis of the tracking or sensor, but I know it feels better than the Spawn. The lift off distance is lower and the mouse movement is more precise.
The cord is fine. It's pretty standard rubber. Though it's a bit more heavy than the spawn. It also has ridges running lengthwise down the whole thing. Depending on your mouse mat/surface this could be good or bad. I'm playing on a Glorious PC Gaming Race extended pad, and the heavy duty stitching on the edge caused a lot of friction with the ridges on the mouse cord. I had to arrange things so the cord actually hung down from the back of my monitor (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V3KM1Y4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 I use one of these on the back of my monitor) in order to keep it off the stitching. Again, with a different surface I think the cord would also be an improvement.
So far my favorite fingertip grip mouse ever and a worthy upgrade from the spawn. I'm not sure what else CM could do to release a Spawn II. The sensor on this feels much better, and the buttons and mouse wheel are an overall improvement. I'm not a fan of the rubber, but for most gamers I think it would also be an improvement. I've never actually liked rubberized surfaces on any mouse, so take that into consideration. The mouse feet are larger but I don't think they make much of a difference on a cloth mat.
My only other experience with CM Storm/Cooler Master and software for their peripherals was the software for the CM Storm Trigger mechanical keyboard and it was terrible. The software for the Xornet II is really nice and easy to use. It also allows you to customize the dpi preset settings as well as the color of the lighting. Be warned if you want white back lighting that the white is very pink looking for some reason (was wanting it white to match my Logitech G710 lighting, but it does not because of the pink - not a deal breaker for me, but for people looking to color coordinate their stuff and want to use white back lighting; this is not the mouse for you). All of the other colors I tried looked fine, I am assuming it has something to do with the scroll wheel not being truly clear and having a pinkish tint to it so the white light that comes through comes appears pink.
One thing I noticed immediately upon unboxing the Xornet II is that unlike the Spawn and I believe the Xornet as well, it isn't painted. The Spawn was painted Red and it had a metallic feeling to it that I quite enjoyed. The Xornet II is very soft and smooth plastic (the pictures are kind of shiny and I thought it would feel the same, but it doesn't). It isn't "worse" but it is "different". I am have yet to really have any feelings one way or the other about it. Just something I noticed immediately when they were both in hand.
The sensor has been improved upon in the Xornet II from it's predecessors as well. I haven't tested it (nor do I plan to) but it definitely feels smoother.
So in conclusion I highly recommend the Xornet II if you are accustomed to the shape of the Xornet or Spawn (personally my favorite mouse shape ever). I almost cried when I saw that the Spawn wasn't being made anymore. At this price point (35 bucks is closer to what I paid for my Spawn years ago compared to the Xornet which came out to 15 bucks after mail in rebate) I definitely consider the Xornet II to be more of a successor to the Spawn than Xornet, but both were identical minus dpi and maybe sensors (?) so it really doesn't matter. This is a fantastic mouse. I would dare say the best mouse on the market at this price point.
