Welcome all to another EGMR unboxing! Today myself and Caz unbox two new gaming mice from Cooler Master: the CM Storm Alcor and Mizar.
The video will cover all the basic information you need, as well as some information you don’t need!

My first impressions are that these two rodents are pretty much carbon copies in terms of features, button layout and body design. I’d argue it is a good thing for the consumer; if they like the low profile and ergonomics of the mice, now have the choice to choose their gaming mouse in terms of specific hardware preferences.
Essentially the only thing you are paying more or less for is in regards to extra LED lightning and colours, materials and, more importantly, the sensor technology under their respective hoods.
The Alcor features the Avago 3090 optical sensor with a maximum DPI of 4000 with a tracking speed of 60ips/20G, 4 LED/DPI light settings and consists a ABS plastic body, with a matte finish for that extra touch of smoothness.
In contrast the Mizar uses the very popular Avago 9800 laser sensor with a maximum of 8200 DPI with tracking speeds of 150 ips/30G, comes with a bit more lighting options, the same matte black ABS plastic but with some rubberised materials for the sides of the mouse and a braided cable.
Everything else about the mice are picture perfect: 7 equally placed programmable buttons, on-the fly DPI-switches, 128 KB of on-board memory, Japanese Omron switches and a 1000Hz polling rate.
For the discerning gamer it seems the only things that are different are the things that might matter to them; the core sensor technology under the hood and what you require from them.
Stay tuned for my written review for both of these mice.
