bumpity bump, i know- topic was undead anyhow.
On the CM Storm Spawn, got it like a month ago, coming from an MX500 (still alive, though, thanks to Logitech's planned obsolescence it can only do 400 instead of 800dpi in w7x64; and I play high sens (meaning I did so at the cost of much accuracy); so change was in order after all this time (+-10yrs)).
I play with a fingertip type grip (yes on that huge logi shell), and I was hoping the Storm would give me just that, with more comfort for my pinky that normally gets dragged over the pad a bit (during long sessions
), it does allow me to, although there's one sad part, I hoped my pinky could use the ringfinger-support-ridge-thingy and keep three fingers on the mouse buttons as I used to do most of the time (middle mouse button is used often, and I dislike leaving M1 for that, very annoying), and that just plain doesn't work. The mouse is just too thin for that (with my hands ofcourse), gets too cramped up; if you try to put your hand on it like that (middle finger on the wheel, ring on rmb, pinky on the supportpart) you'll automatically end up with some clawgrip thing, I dislike that, much prefer more relaxt fingers. *which this mouse does allow quite smoothly, see below
Also, when trying that hold I have too little grip on the mouse to press the side buttons without nudging the mouse.
Sooo, fingertipping works, but only with three instead of four fingers on buttons (thumb+pointer+middle, no ring).
Incidentally, perhaps related, perhaps not, I'm getting mayor rsi-like aches in my elbow/shoulder lately.
It is a light mouse btw.
Which makes the cord really bad, waay too stiff (actually thinking of some kinda cable hanging system to counter that).
EDIT: forgot to mention the scroll wheel, it's bad. Up feels way diff than down, though I haven't had the dreaded noscroll/doublescroll happening that I've know from my MX500. yet.
EDIT2: ALSO: Please be adviced that the support from CM Storm to fix the issues that have been reported way back when it was released is quite lackluster. As in, there's no fix thus far (approx a year later). Issues like: high cpu usage causing massive lag in the cursor (without the cm drivers installed) and moreso than on other mice (f.i. mx500@1000hz was nothing like this; even though that should strain the usb bus more), and firmware options are iffy, look at their forum for more info. EDIT3: sigh.. alright, seems they haven't abbandoned the Spawn owners completely, 3 weeks ago a new beta firmware was posted on the forums. Maybe there's hope.
