The Revolution Pro has a lot going for it, but really only for smaller handed users. With medium sized hands, the optional side panel is sort of worthless if fingers don't fit in the grooves, and this is why we preferred the default right side panel in our extended use of this mouse. The left side of this mouse is not only grippy with the rubber insert, but the button placement is all easily within comfortable reach of the thumb, and can also be done blindly so you are not distracted from the action of the game. We also like that Sentey is using top-tier parts and components inside of their mice by giving their customers Omron switches under their fingers and the top-tier of laser sensor technology to track everything you do.
While we were not expecting all that much, with nothing previous to go off of, we do have to look at this product against others as far as its feature set and what it brings to the table. The features offered here are better than a lot of what is out there, but in the same breath, we have to say it seems like it is missing a few things. Lighting control would help for those who do not like the pulsating effect, because that is the only way to see the lights right now. We also found that even when properly setting up the Revolution Pro to the various mouse pads with the Lift feature, during gaming and normal surfing on the Internet, the mouse seemed to track rather well, but when it comes to precision work, it seems that this sensor is a bit too jerky and hit or miss as to whether it reads minute movements or just takes off past what you were trying to do.
Things we really liked were the travel case, the weights and carrying case for them, the slick way the side of the mouse comes off and can be swapped for an optional panel as well as hiding away the weight tray, which is something we have not seen before. I can see younger buyers liking the poster, door tag, and sticker, and even as far as things like the ceramic feet on the bottom delivering effortless movement and the braided cable and Velcro tie strap, which are all things that go into the plus column when determining the overall rating you are about to see.
Obtaining the Revolution Pro from Sentey is not that tough, and with the pricing we discussed earlier, all in all it is a pretty good deal. There are a lot of checks in the plus column, but there are also a few in the minus column that do need considering before making this purchase. As long as minute accuracy for photo editing or that sort of detailed work is not on the agenda and you don't have very large hands, this is a serious contender for a select section of the market.
Had this been slightly larger for the average sized person, and with just a tweak here and there, this could have been a chart topper, but for our first experience with a Sentey peripheral, we can see they have their head on straight, are deep into the game, and know what customers want. As time progresses and as we hopefully see more from Sentey, as long as they don't do anything drastically wrong in their near future, they could be a company to take on the big dogs in the peripherals game.
