Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing

While Sentey has sent us quite a few products for our team to review, we have only had one other Sentey mouse to look at to gauge how well they do in the peripherals department. Of course, when we looked at that mouse, the Revolution Pro, we found just about everything a mouse owner could want in a mouse design, along with extra goodies. The Revolution Pro could be found at a really good price point as well, which is why we gave them our Best Value Award at that time. Regrettably, we reviewed the Revolution Pro just about a year ago now, and we are only just getting our second mouse reviewed so we can get a better feel of what Sentey mice have to offer.

 

This time around, there are obviously some additions we have not seen from Sentey before, but there are many similarities that hark back to the design of the Revolution Pro. This time, Sentey is not offering a million buttons on the left side of the mouse like many others have tried before. Sentey has taken a different approach, and has strategically placed twelve buttons, nine of which are fully programmable and within comfortable range of the fingers or thumb. With so many buttons at your disposal, this mouse is well set up right out of the box. This time we have DPI and mode selection buttons, and even a button that allows for on-the-fly Macro programmability.

 

To paraphrase Sentey: today's gamers are able to leave the competition in the dust because of this mouse, and if you would like to keep up with the professionals out there, you need to get this mouse. While we doubt this exact mouse has been the bane of your long term gaming spree, considering the layout and design of the Lumenata Pro we are looking at today, your chances of success have probably gotten better if you chose to use this mouse.

Other than this chart, there is no mention of the Lumenata Pro on the Sentey product page, but we see they marked this product as the GS-3901 or the Lumenata Pro SP mouse from their Professional Series. One of the first things mentioned on the chart is that the Lumenata Pro comes with a one-year warranty. This device also has an optical laser sensor, which is really tough to do, but the Pixart/Avago ADNS9800 in care of tracking is definitely laser based. Additionally, this sensor allows for a DPI range of 200 to 8200 DPI in 200 DPI increment adjustments; to help with DPI adjustments, the Lumenata also has a DPI switch to cycle through four customizable settings. This mouse also offers a four-way scroll wheel, and the button layout is shown as nine plus two, and then you still have to count the DPI selector switch as well. As we mentioned, nine of the buttons can be used for Macro programmability, and that is over five profiles as well, each of which has a distinct color to designate which profile is currently in use.

 

This mouse has a gold plated USB 2.0 connection at the end of 1.8 meters of braded cable. The Lumenata Pro at the other end of the cable is made of plastic. The Lumenata has rubberized surfaces in addition to bits of highly polished plastic to deliver just the right amount of contrast to what is otherwise a black mouse with LEDs that light the one side. This mouse is 124mm long, 77mm wide as it ergonomically slopes to the right, and stands 42mm in height at its tallest point. Without any additional weighting involved in this design, the mouse comes in at a very modest 160 grams of weight. Other than that, we see it comes with a manual, is Windows ready, requires a driver for full control, and requires only 2.4MB for the driver (possibly more dependent on space needed to store Macros that are not currently saved in the mouse).

 

There is a suggested MSRP of $79.99 listed on the Sentey site, and in our opinion, this price is right for the capabilities of the mouse. However, even using their own "where to buy" link, all but one of the listings comes up blank. The only site that actually had a listing for the Lumenata Pro was Amazon.com. The listing on Amazon had a price of just $29.99. Ironically, the seller is Sentey, or at least that is what the listing shows. We have to assume there is some confusion somewhere, but we would certainly be hopping on the $30 deal for the Lumenata Pro if the listing is correct. This is just too much mouse to pass up on for that amount of money.
