Bjorn3d: Seal of Approval : October 2009

The Cooler Master Sentinel is a great entry for Cooler Master into the peripheral market. The mouse also lives up to the other products in the Storm series, which is saying a lot. The mouse has a nice comfortable feel to it.


The option to make the LED's on the mouse different colors is nice, and there is sure to be a color that pleases everyone. The ability for a clan logo is also nice, as it adds a bit of customization to the mouse. The on the fly DPI switching is nothing new, and more of a given for a higher end mouse such as this one. What many of you are probably wondering about is the scrool wheel. While the "clicks" are not as definite as on the MX-518, you deffinatly know when you have went over a notch. To me this is a plus, because otherwise i fumble around with switching weapons in a gane like GTA4.

Hightechhardeware editors choice. : September 2009

"I personally think that CoolerMaster has hit this one out of the park with the Sentinel. I really like this mouse. It fits my hands better than any mouse in a long time. The performance of the mouse it top notch and the twin laser sensor works well. Having the ability to adjust the X & Y axis on the fly has a huge impact on gaming, depending on what your role is at the time."

"Overall, Cooler Master did a great job all-around on the Sentinel Advance. All 8 buttons being programmable and up to 5 total profiles, this rodent has a wide variety of customization.  On top of that, the setting are saved within the mouse itself since Cooler Master included a 64kb microprocessor. Macros, scripts and LEDs OH MY. Did we mention the 5600DPI? Wow."
