# EmbargoOlin Coles 2010-08-03 13:00
Benchmark Reviews respects all NDA and product embargo agreements. The CM Storm Inferno was under embargo until 12-August-2010, however the embargo was lifted when a German website published their review early back on 28-July-2010.

You might also want to check up on the Z-axis tracking. The Philips Twin eye is notorious for that.

As seen in the Imperator. I can confirm for you that this issue is present with any mouse that has the Philips Twin-Eye present.

The CM Storm Inferno won't be available until 12-August-2010. It should be listed at NewEgg on or before that date.

Z axis issues are common with mice using the Phillips Twin-Eye laser sensor, so unless that flaw has been fixed in the Inferno mouse, I would avoid it. you can see this flaw demonstrated on youtube

Hello and thanks for this outstanding review. I discusses some points that no other reviewers seem to care about, but can be important for many.
There is still one thing that I can't get cleared up after digging through a lot of reviews and info.
The Inferno's feature list states that only 9 of the 11 buttons are programmable. The software screens don't I find tell nothing of which buttons are Not programmable. Also you state that 11 are. The main thing I would like to know is this:
Exactly which buttons am I Unable to assign at least a keypress to?
Thank you in advance for your time and possible help.
