Review Summary:

I had to clear my desk, and the table next to it just to review this mouse pad. It’s wider than my keyboard, and takes a quarter of my total desk area.

Review: CM Storm Control-RX

The Control-RX, what can I say about this thing, oh wait; HOLY SHIT ITS HUGE. This thing is so massive, it’s crazy. Yeah I think that’s how we’ll start this one. I had to clear my desk, and the table next to it just to review this mouse pad. It’s wider than my keyboard, and takes a quarter of my total desk area. I’m no stranger when it comes to huge computer accessories; after all I have the Cooler Master Cosmos II for my case.

The Looks

Now the RX Series mouse pads from Cooler Master might not be the widest mouse pad, but I think it’s pretty much the overall biggest when it comes to both height and width. It comes in at 17.32×13.77 Inches! If you are a hard core gamer, this thing is the EXECUTIVE gaming mouse pad. Coming in bigger than some peoples monitors, and larger than almost every laptop out there, if you need to make a power statement on your desk you need this thing. It has a white CM Storm Logo on the top and a big Control-RX logo on the bottom right hand corner. Did I mention it’s big?

How does it work?

This thing feels nice, it’s like moving your mouse on a woman’s ass. It’s soft, thick and has a lot of room to move around. The surface has excellent tracking on. I tested the Control RX with the following mice, Razor Naga Epic, Roccat Kone+, and the CM Storm Recon. Both mice worked flawlessly on the highest, and lowest of DPI settings. I don’t think you’ll have an issue.

      The Bad

      The only thing bad about this mouse pad is its size, but you’re not buying this mouse pad because it’s small. You’re buying it because it’s HUGE.


      I love this mouse pad so much, I think I might go out and buy a bigger desk just so I can truly utilize it’s full potential. You can slap shot the shit out of everyone with these things. If you have the desk real estate, and are a hardcore gamer or just need a blanket to keep warm then buy this mouse pad. The RX Series mouse pads come in 3 flavors, Control, Power, and Speed. It’s available now at Cooler Master for $29.99. I give the CM Storm Control-RX a 5 out 5.
