Benchmarks

Specifications
The Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse has a 5600 dpi twin laser sensor for accuracy. Internal memory for saving profiles is 64k and the mouse sports an OLED screen showing the sensitivity the mouse is currently set at. The Sentinel has eight programmable buttons, 1000Hz polling, and an adjustable weight system.

In Use
The Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse is a very cool looking mouse. The software that ships with the Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse allows you to do all sorts of customization from recording macros and programming keys to customizing the color of the lights on the mouse. One cool thing about the lights is that you can bind them to change colors with profiles so you can find profiles by color in the dark.

The big feature is that the mouse has a 5600 dpi laser sensor. The mouse is very accurate, but at 5600 dpi there is certainly a learning curve to be had before you end up flying all over the screen with little control. Once you get the hang of the mouse, the high sensitivity is great for gamers who like fast twitch movements and use large LCDs.

The mouse feels very comfortable in the hand, but has a much higher profile and is larger than the G9 from Logitech I typically game with. The profile management button is placed ahead of the scroll wheel putting it within easy reach, but not so close that you hit it during spirited play, two profile buttons are also located under the scroll wheel.

The mouse includes an interesting security feature that is an IO port cover with holes that let you wind the USB cable through to prevent someone from stealing your mouse easily. Like most high-end gaming mice today the Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse also offers weight adjustability with up to 22.5 grams of weight that can be added. The only real downside I can find to this mouse is that it is a right hand only design. If you are a left handed gamer you are out of luck. You lefties are used to that though.

Verdict

Conclusion

Pros

  • Lots of sensitivity
  • Cool light effects
  • Accurate

Cons

  • Right hand only design

Verdict
The Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse is a great gaming mouse that sells for about $70. If you need a good gaming mouse with extra little features to set it apart from the other products available, the Sentinel Advanced Gaming Mouse may be just what you are looking for.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
