I have been using a Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance for a few months so I was already familar with the Cooler Master line and was ready to give the Xornet a try.
One of the first things you notice when you open the package is the claw like grip design and the roundness of the Mouse. It is very ergonomically friendly and does take some time getting use to. The second is it is a optical mouse with a maximum 2000 dpi, this to me is personal preference. I currenlty use anywhere from 1600-2400 dpi for FPS or mostly 1600 for MMO. After using the mouse in a couple rounds of TF2 you really don’t notice a difference between the Xornet from a laser mouse.

Omron Micro Switches (5 million clicks) – Only the best is good enough! Omrons patented ultra tactile micro switches enable unsurpassed tactile feedback and speed. You will be able to reach an incredible amount of clicks per second while still feeling and controlling every single click. Omron guarantees a minimum amount of 5 million clicks for these highest grade switches, giving Xornet an extended life-span even for hardcore gamers.
DPI On the Fly – Conveniently placed under the scroll wheel, you can switch the DPI resolution between 500, 1000 and 2000 within an instant.
Rubberized Anti-Slip Design – A Special sweat proof rubber compound on both sides of Xornet gives you maximum grip. Even in heated hour long matches and during quick lift and drop moves you retain full control while repositioning and racing Xornet over the mousepad.
Precision Anti-Drift Control Sensor – Xornet utilizes the latest high performance optical engine ensuring extreme stability and reliability. Based on an anti-drift architecture, it delivers stable and precise tracking in mouse lift and drop scenarios. Angle snapping can be enabled or disabled for exact swift crosshair movements enabling amazing skill-shots and incredible aiming accuracy.
The Xornet is very ergonomically friendly and represents an economical choice for any gamer. The 2 year warranty is a big bonus on parts and labor.
I would defiantly recommend this mouse for a gamer not looking for super fast dpi and looking for some extra comfort while gaming without breaking the bank.
