CM Storm Sentinel Advance II and Recon first impressions


Aside from trying out the CM Storm Sirius S at the Cooler Master booth at COMPUTEX, we also had the opportunity to briefly touch and feel their newest mice – the Sentinel Advance II and Recon. These two new mice are the newest gaming mice that the company has, and both were designed with hardcore gamers in mind.

The Sentinel Advance II is a right-handed design, and is an update to the company’s previous offering, the Sentinel. It features 200 – 8200 DPI tracking resolution, On the fly DPI adjustments (increments of 200 DPI), 8 programmable buttons, 9 additional virtual buttons via button combinations, customizable OLED logo and customizable multi color LED light system.

Interestingly, the Sentinel Advance II has removable weights on the bottom of the mouse, which allows users to customize the overall balance of the device to their preference.
