CM Storms Latest Mouse & Mats

Sentinel Advance Appearance

Packaging and Appearance. 
 
The Sentinel came in a rectangular shaped box, with a large cut-out revealing the mouse, which is protected by a moulded sheet of plastic. The front contains a few details, but it's round the back that you find the in-depth product information. There is a full break down of the mouse's key features along with little images to illustrate what each feature relates to.

In the box we have; The mouse itself, a software disc and a Safeguard PCI plate. The CD is one of the mini CD affairs, but should work fine in most CD/DVD drives. The Safeguard plate is an interesting addition, with the plate allowing you to thread the mouse's cable through a spare PCI plate, stopping it from being stolen easily. The cable itself is bound up with a loop of wire, and is braided from start to finish, all the way to the gold connector on the end.

The mouse has a number of key design features, which give it a fairly distinctive look. In front of the scroll wheel we have a button to change the mouse's profile, then 2 buttons behind which change the sensitivity/dpi. Behind the dpi buttons we can see the OLED screen, which is surrounded by a metal meshing. The mouse has the usual forward/back buttons on the right hand side, with a nice deep curve to support your thumb below. Apart from the mesh, the buttons and shell are largely plastic, which means mouse clicks are more on the click side rather than a quality clunk.

Turning the mouse over reveals some sports-car like front scoops, which are used to channel the light onto your desk from the LED's hidden behind (more on that later). About 3 cms behind the scoops we have the laser, with a small door a further 3cm's or so behind that. Opening the door reveals 5 weight cartridges- all of them 4.5g in weight.

I think you'll agree that so far things look pretty impressive. Time to give the Sentinel a test run...

It went on my wishlist the second I saw it and hasn't budged. CM quality with epic features for average Razer money? Count me in.

Although I agree that the OLED could be more customisable.

Truly the King of Mice.
