Introduction, Specifications and Pricing
While all of our previous introductions at TweakTown about Sentey were typically dealing with either a chassis or a PSU, it seems we may have been missing out. Since we last heard from Sentey to look around at what chassis designs we wanted to review, there was little to no talk of what peripherals were on offer. After what seemed like a year or two, we were contacted again out of the blue to have a look at one of their latest mice to hit the market. We graciously accepted the sample, and we are now here to show TweakTown readers what Sentey peripherals are about as we take a spin around this product.
Just at a quick glance, it seems that Sentey has been very busy since the last time their product list was checked. Since then, there has been a minor explosion of peripherals coming in the form of five mice, as many keyboards and headsets, and even four mouse surfaces to use with their mice. It seems we did in fact miss out on quite a few products, but today that changes as we were sent the Sentey Revolution Pro, a laser based gaming mouse that offers unique ideas and implementations, but it still comes in a familiar and comfortable design.
Given the Revolution Pro is the first I have ever seen a peripheral from Sentey, I am not quite sure what to expect. With little hype on forums or in flash ads, there really isn't much to base an opinion off of. This is what employs people like me, and without any blinders on as we tour the Revolution Pro, we hope it is as good as what the Sentey site and all of its literature there touts this mouse to be. We'll see if there is true value or if this is just a flash in the pan.
Sentey delivers a specifications chart like they care about their customers and feel that they are knowledgeable. As we cruise down the list, we see the laser sensor offers 8200 DPI in 100 DPI increments, and it also offers four levels of settings that can be adjusted on-the-fly. They even mention the sensor by name as gamers are educated and are looking for the Avago ADNS 9800 sensor in products. It then covers the 1ms polling rate and 12,000 FPS frame rate. Then, after passing the 4D scroll wheel, it continues with the tracking speed and acceleration this sensor can track. The X- and Y-axis can be unlinked, there are nine buttons plus the DPI selector, and the software offers five profiles. The last bits of the top section cover the use of ceramic feet; that it offers five LED colors depending on the profile in use; that it has adjustable weights; and that it uses USB 2.0 for connectivity.
The lower section covers the gold plated USB 2.0 connection, cable length and type, the size and weight, and even the dimensions. What they don't cover is that this mouse is also feature packed in looks as well as the LED colors, and also a DPI indicator that is in easy view. They also don't mention that this design uses a mixture of shiny bits, matte bits, as well as rubberized bits to offer comfort in their design as well as grip. There is also a hidden surprise to the right side of this mouse; the surprise is where the side section will unlock and come off to expose weighting, and as an added bonus, there is even an optional side grip that the stock one can be replaced with to cover the weight tray.
It seems pretty simple to locate the Sentey Revolution Pro laser mouse. It took us all of about 5 seconds to open a browser, type in the name, press enter, and find listings of this mouse to go and buy from. At Sentey, they have the MSRP of $89.99 posted right on their product page for this product, but it did not take long to see it can be had for less, and in some instances, almost $15 less. As most mice seem to sell these days in the $50 to $100 range once it is marketed for gaming and not the basic email and Facebook "clicker," the pricing can be had right in the average. Here is to hoping the average pricing also comes along with an above average product.
