PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The Inferno has a sleek, aggressive look with black and gray coloring that is common to modern input devices. The main attraction here are the buttons – if you like a lot of them, this is the mouse for you. There's a total of 11 buttons on this puppy, with nine of them being programmable.
The top of the mouse is a busy area. A small, thin button flanks the left click button, this is the Rapid Fire Tactical key. The same small button is also found next to the right click button, this is the MacroPro key. Three additional buttons are found under the scroll wheel – two trapezoid shaped buttons adjust DPI, while the hexagon shaped button switches between profiles.
On the left side are three additional buttons. By default, the two buttons closest to the thumb rest area are for navigating forwards or backwards in a web browser, while the square shaped button is the Storm Tactics Multiplier key.
Five different DPI settings are available to you, with the number 1 indicating 800 DPI by default. The number 5 indicates the highest DPI setting, which is 4000. These settings can be tweaked to your liking using the included software.
On the underside we can get a look at the twin lasers and some large pads to help the mouse glide over a surface. Unlike some gaming mice, the weight on the Inferno can't be adjusted.
