Along with the mouse you get these two bits of paperwork. On the left is the notice that there isn't an included disc for the software, but in the move to save on resources, you can go to CM's website and get all of the downloads you need for the Sentinel Advance II. On the right is the warranty information and explains the limitations of the two year warranty.

Included with the mouse is an extra set of PTFE feet for the mouse. Not that I suggest you void your warranty to prove me right, but even peeling the feet that are on the mouse to open things up, the stuck right back down and it will be some time before I need to replace them, either way I like the fact that they are provided.

Included along with my mouse, but needs to be purchased separately, is the CM Storm Speed-RXL. The mat was originally designed for optical sensors, but has been found to work great with high performance lasers as well.

The back says that this is a gaming mouse pad, while the other side has a sample of the material along with the specs of the mat with a list of five features displayed to cover the information available for the Speed-RXL.

The mat uses dense foam that is textured on the back to grip almost any surface while the top used weaved cloth as the gaming surface. When the mat is cut to shape it seals the cloth edges to prevent roll over with use of the mat. There is also a large logo and CM Storm by Cooler Master that has been screened on in grey and white paint.

This was more just to show the immense size of the large version of the Speed-RX mats. As you can see, once this gaming surface is employed you won't need to worry about the Sentinel Advance II and its 1.5mm LOD, as you will never really need to lift your mouse.
