CM Storm Sentinel Advance II Mouse review (w/ Speed RX Padz)

Rating: 9.0.

The gaming peripheral market is a hotly contested arena, with manufacturers such as Razer, Steelseries and Roccat all vying for sales. In 2009, CM Storm released the Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse which was formed around a state of the art (at the time) 5,600 resolution dpi sensor. It was in reality a very good product and it deservedly sold well.

Cooler Master are releasing their next flagship gaming mouse, The CM Storm Sentinel Advance II. This new product features a Avago ADNS-9800 laser sensor which can be configured between a modest 200 dpi and an eye popping 8,200 dpi.

When it comes to adopting a mouse, I have to admit I am very hard to please. I tend to gravitate towards Steelseries products, generally because they seem to be shaped for larger hands. We have no shortage of mice in our offices, but I find the Steelseries Sensei is almost the perfect shape for my hand. It doesn’t matter how fancy the sensor is, if it feels uncomfortable I just won’t be using it.

Today we are also taking a look at the new CM Storm Speed RX surfaces. These are constructed from microscopic synthetic mesh for optimum precision.

  • 200 – 8200 DPI tracking resolution
