Cooler Master CM Storm Octane Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Review

The CM Octane’s mouse looks quite neat, typical of a gaming mouse of course.

The mouse comes with backlit too.

As for the mouse feet, I think CM did a bad job on it. Mouse feet at the front and rear end of the mouse doesn’t work well enough when a mouse is wide, there’s a possibility of the body scraping the surface of the mouse pad.

User Experience

Not exactly the most stellar of experience but one must keep in mind that this is a budget product.

For what its worth, the keyboard and mouse combination is good enough for casual users who aren’t discerning (or picky) for their activity.

I like it that the backlight comes in a variety of colors and has adjustable intensity, I only wish CM put more thought when it comes to placing paddings on the keyboard and mouse feet for smoother user experience.

The keyboard remains sturdy with each press, the keys do not give any ‘clicky’ sound while the mouse registers quite heavy click noise.

I tested it both on StarCraft II which is keyboard and mouse intensive and I had no issues with completing my 1 vs 1 matches.

The Verdict

Cooler Master CM Storm Octane Gaming Keyboard and Mouse package retails for RM 199, a fair price to pay for a set of keyboard and mouse that looks great (love the LED!) and works well.
