CM Storm Sentinel Advance Z3RO-G Review

Design

Visually the only way to tell this apart is the colour. Otherwise it's identical to the Sentinel Advance. It's one of the lowest profile mice we've seen come through the OC3D offices, on a par with the Roccat Kova. So this should suit those of you with smaller hands. However it wont suit those south-paws in the audience, as once again it's a dedicated right-handed mouse with sufficient curvature to make left-handed use impossible at worst, and an utter faff at best.

The Back and Forward buttons are nicely placed right underneath where your thumb sits, minimising the need to reposition your hand to hit everything.

From the top-down perspective we have the 'drilled' area that provides lighting and surrounds the OLED screen. Just in front of that are two buttons for moving up and down the DPI settings that you've entered in the software (on the next page). They can also be held down which the allows the scroll wheel to adjust DPI, should you want some finer adjustment. In front of the scroll wheel is the profile button which switches between the five available profiles. One of them is locked off, but four user-profiles should be enough for all but the most demanding user.

Upside down we see the 'Storm Tactical Sensor', a 5600DPI twin-laser that is the heart of the Z3RO-G. Behind that is a flap that contains the weights for adjusting the inertia of the Z3RO-G.

22.5g of extra weight come as standard, housed in high-density foam. These weights are really hanging out the back of the Z3RO-G and could do with being far more central. Firing the mouse up we see the Shattered Horizon logo on the OLED display.
