CM Storm just released the Havoc, a high-end gaming mouse with the excellent Avago ADNS-9800 sensor on board. The Havoc is very well off sensor-wise, but that is not the only part of it. The Havoc is also fully rubber coated, has a high-grip thumb...

The CM Storm Havoc is both effective and affordable. However, if you have a bit more money to spare, we prefer the Logitech G500s, which is more comfortable and has more...

After using the Havoc for a while, the shape of the mouse really grew on me. For those that really enjoy a palm-grip style mouse, the structure of the Havoc fits the hand almost perfectly. I think it's well understood that the size of your hand plays a...

The most surprising thing experiencing the Havoc mouse was not that it was different from other mice, but that it felt very familiar. The only feeling in my hand that differentiated this mouse from the Logitech G400/G500 or Razer Deathadder was the...

The Havoc left a good impression with its tight grip and agile sliding. It is a perfect middle-sized mouse for right-handed palm-grippers who do not care about weight adjustment. Although it is aesthetically pleasing, the shiny right side could have...

Out of the box, I did try the insanity of trying to control the 8200 DPI offered in the Havoc, but I found myself overshooting what I needed, and just the jiggle of the hand trying to double click to open an application was near impossible. That isn't...

Ultimately, the CM Storm Havoc adds up to quite a nice mouse. The build quality is good, as expected from a product coming from the CM Storm line of products. The soft touch finish was a joy to hold and all buttons delivered a nicely defined click. From...

As we have so often said here at OC3D Towers, the mouse market is probably the tightest contested on of any PC related sector. For every fiver that you go up in price there is an overwhelming array of choices. It takes something very special to stand...

Almost exactly one year ago, Techgage's overlord, Rob, reviewed Cooler Master's Storm Sentinel Advance II gaming mouse. It didn't quite win Rob over completely, though. Too many niggling issues deprived it the honor of earning our Editor's Choice...

CoolerMaster is one of our favorite PC gaming hardware companies. So when the chance to check out their new Havoc gaming mouse came around we jumped at the chance. After a bit of a dry spell (in mice at least), CoolerMaster is back and ready to take your...

It is clear Cooler Master went back and check their own designs to create the Storm Havoc. Borrowing from the Storm Sentinel Advance II and Storm Recon, the newest addition to the Storm line had most of its work cut out. Hence, it definitely is one of...

De CM Storm Havoc is een comfortabele muis van redelijk groot formaat. De verlichting in de muis wordt nuttig gebruikt voor het herkennen van profielen en de prestaties zijn uitstekend. Wel is het vervelend dat de profielknop aan de zijkant van de muis...

El ratón Cooler Master CM Storm Havoc ofrece un diseño aparentemente sencillo pero que gana mucho enteros cuando se encienden sus 3 zonas LED en cualquiera de los 7 colores disponibles (rojo por defecto). Ofrece una ergonomía excelente , sobre todo para...

N'étant pas habitué à voir des fabricants tels que Cooler Master réaliser des produits PC gaming, j'ai été donc surpris de savoir qu'ils faisaient des claviers et souris de jeu. La CM Storm Havoc est la parfaite illustration d'une petite réussite qui...

Un buen ratón por menos de 50 Euros. Una forma inteligente de poder disfrutar del mejor sensor del mercado con un ratón bien acabado y de calidad. Su precio de menos de 50 Euros a mí me parece un regalo teniendo en cuenta que CM Storm también ha...
