In all, I have been quite pleased with Cooler Master’s ‘MasterMouse Pro L’. I honestly haven’t come away with too many criticisms of it, perhaps the DPI button underneath the mouse could have been better placed and the software could do with a speed boost but outside of that, the mouse has been a pleasure to use.
I personally chose to stick to the standard side grips and top cover as I do not use claw grip. However, it is always great to see a company offering its customers more options. On top of that, Cooler Master is going to put its cover and grip designs online for those with 3D printers, so if something ever goes wrong, you can easily make a replacement.
The Avago 3360 IR Sensor handled tracking perfectly fine, to the point where I did not even need to calibrate for my mouse mat. The sensor also supports up to 12,000 DPI, which should keep most users more than happy.
While the mouse technically has 8 programmable buttons, I imagine most will only bother with the two on the side, which gives you four custom commands in total once you factor in the Storm Tactix mode.
It all comes down to price though, the Cooler Master MasterMouse Pro L can be bought for £49.99 here in the UK from the beginning of September, unless you’re at Insomnia LAN this weekend, where a few will be on sale at the Cooler Master stand. This is a very reasonable price point for what is on offer but it will face some tough competition.

KitGuru Says: The Cooler Master MasterMouse Pro L is a fine mouse for the money. If you want a mid-range mouse with plenty of features and customisation, then this is worth buying.
