Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Cooler Master.

For some odd reason Cooler Master seems to be releasing products everyday, whether it’s a new case or a new peripheral, their product line has been increasing exponentially in the past few years. What is not odd is the fact that many of Cooler Master products Benchmark Reviews has come across end up highly appraised. Today we are looking at one of two pointing devices Cooler Master has released this month. The Cooler Master Mizar serves as a reminder to earlier gaming peripherals, with an ergonomic design and no sharp angles, rather looking like something to rival MIcrosoft’s own line of peripherals, it still brings the more cataloged features to suit modern gamers.

It seems to be an ongoing trend for gaming mice manufacturers to implement ergonomic designs to their latest releases. There is no negative side to this though, just look at the popularity the Razer DeathAdder has gained among the gaming community. Of course Cooler Master has more powerful and expensive offerings than the Mizar, but this is their first shot at this trend.


A quick glance at the specifications found on the Cooler Master website and I am amazed already. Just the fact that they can offer an Avago 9800 at such a cheap price is quite surprising. They do mention the weight with and without the USB cable, which is important as a heavy braided cable can add a lot of undesired friction. What is curious is the omission of what type of switches were implemented in the Mizar, but a visit to their shop and we find that the two front ones are Omron switches but no mention to the rest of the buttons.
