As I mentioned, the look and feel of the Sentinel Advance Ii is just like the original and it's as if I went right back to the enjoyable hours of gaming I had with that mouse. The upgraded sensor is nice and I actually found myself using the 8200 DPI at desktop level quite a bit, but there is no way I could be accurate in an FPS at that high of a setting. I still found myself gaming at around 3200-3600 DPI only dropping DPI occasionally if I had a rifle or was driving or flying.
I don't remember the original version having the script or macro capabilities and I know it did not include the TX button that allows multi-functionality of all but one button on the mouse. This combined with a sleek and sexy, aesthetically appealing design and the cool lighting and slightly programmable OLED screen again I don't see how you can go wrong with the Sentinel Advance II.
Stepping back a minute to ponder other mice that have similar offerings I am immediately brought to ROCCAT due to the similarity in the Storm TX and EasyShift+ systems and as far as software goes, they even battle head to head there. Where I think the CM Storm pulls ahead with me is that it pulls at my memories of hours and hours of games gone by. I mean it really is down to personal taste with that comparison. Even if I were to put it against the Corsair models, the CM Storm has better software and Corsair doesn't offer multi-functionality of its buttons. We haven't even got to the point that the Corsair is more expensive to get a similarly featured product.
If you had the chance to experience the original I have to say you need to experience the latest incarnation of this mouse. Even if you haven't had a Cooler Master mouse in your life, I think it is time to give them a chance. There really isn't anything they missed with the Sentinel Advance II High Performance laser gaming mouse. It has cool lights, the fastest laser sensor money can buy at the time of writing, a pretty serious software package, the TX capabilities, removable weight and it has an OLED screen. Even if slightly over the top, it is still something I have yet to see from anyone else.
All of this technology, software and more is bundled in a mouse that just feels right the first time and every time it is in your hands. For $57, shipped to your door, I don't see how you cannot consider the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II as your next choice.
