27 July 2012
Conclusion: CoolerMaster proves it can successfully produce devices outside their initial comfort zone and the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II High Performance Gaming Mouse is such a product. At $59.99 MSRP, it offers features not found in under $100 range and the addition of the OLED display and the attractive...
Pros: ergonomic shape, high sensitivity and response time, very stylish, high-tech design with multi-colored lights and OLED screen, dedicated hardware buttons to change profiles and sensitivity on the fly, adjustable weight, firmware can be updated
Cons: no initial software inside the box, functionality can be overlooked if you don’t read the instructions carefully
Summary: The CM Storm Sentinel Advance II is a good mouse. It does have a few quirks regarding the scroll wheel and the sensor, however, it can still compete with the other serious high end gaming mice on the market.
Pros: Price!, Looks, Quality sensor, Comfort, Eight buttons, OLED Display, On-board macro and profile storage, Very short lift-off-distance
Cons: Scroll wheel not up to the quality of the rest of the mouse, Design might not be for all, Some minor sensor oddities, Ungodly long name
Conclusion: The CM Storm Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse arrived in pretty impressive packaging. The box shows off the ergonomic design of the mouse and details some of the more prominent features.
Pros: 8 Programmable Buttons, Multi-Color LED Customizations, OLED Display for DPI and Personal Logo, Customizable Weight from 139 to 161.5 grams, Up to 5 Different Profiles, Macro Editor for Complete Control of Functions, Keyboard and Multi-Media Built-In Functions, 64kb Memory Bank for Driverless Use
Cons: Scroll Wheel button is too hard to push, 4th and 5th buttons are too close together
Conclusion: Cooler Master Sentinel Advance creates a mixed bag of feelings. On the one hand, it looks really awesome, its form is very comfortable (so is the button placement), it has a great sensor and a very feature rich software.
Conclusion: This mouse is made for first person shooters, so it is only logical to assume that it does very good in that area. The precision and the smoothness that is achieved with the 5600 DPI sensors are almost unparalleled.
