CM Storm Alcor and Mizar Mice Review
Published: 24th February 2014 | Source: CM Storm | Price: £29.99 & £39.99 |
Side by side you can see how they really are cut from the same cloth. The CM Storm logo on the Alcor is all that lights up, although it does change colour depending upon which DPI setting is currently selected. The Mizar lights up the DPI buttons and scroll wheel as well as the CM Storm logo, but only the logo colour can be changed in the software.
Speaking of software this is probably the major, sensor aside, difference between the two mice. The Alcor is reliant upon CM Storm releasing firmware for any changes in DPI settings, whereas the Mizar has the selection of customisation options we've come to expect from a peripheral software package. We're sure that the slight font-size problem will be fixed in the final release. Otherwise it's as easy to use as we would expect from CM Storm.
