The Lumenata Pro is medium sized and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand without impeding functionality. All of the switches and LED indicators are functional, and while there is little love offered from the F.S. button, we were able to sort out how it all comes together with a little bit of trial and error. All of the buttons are well placed on the Lumenata, but we used the right side buttons very little because we were always feeling for them and it just didn't feel natural. However, the buttons are accessible, and with time and repeated use, your hand will learn where they are.
What really stands out to us in our testing is that Sentey does have their firmware in order, and has delivered one of the most pleasurable tracking mice we have tested in a long time. There is no prediction to screw things up; the mouse simply goes where you intended it to be, with every curve or adjustment you need followed by the cursor. So, if you are gaming, photo editing, or doing something else that requires precision, the Lumenata Pro will track your movements flawlessly. This mouse feels as though it is part of your hand.
We really enjoy the feel of the mouse, the lack of effort involved to make minor adjustments, the button layout, and all of the options available once the software is in play, but sadly, there were some issues we noticed. Some form of explanation for how the F.S. button works, and what happens after a Macro is used on-the-fly, would be greatly appreciated by any customer, but the lack of one is not a deal breaker. We also found that they smashed one of the USB wires when they assembled our sample, but the mouse still functions with no work involved on our part, and had we been a good customer left the mouse intact, we would have never known. However, one thing we just cannot shake is the way the two main buttons feel. The left side is clear, crisp, and plainly audible when it is used; but the right button feels mushy, your finger slides to the outside of the mouse, and it even sounds muffled when activated. We opened the mouse to be sure the switches both felt right without the buttons in play, and they did, so it has to be either the way we held the mouse, or the right button just doesn't allow for a direct press like the left.
Pricing is confusing with the official product page showing a MSRP of $79.99, which isn't out of the ball park for a mouse with this feature set, and the Sentey Amazon listing showing a price of just $29.99. However, with the low pricing on Amazon, the pressure we were applying does ease considerably. At this price we can overlook the wiring and the fact that there is a bit of learning involved with the Lumenata Pro. Additionally, feel is something that many users consider when purchasing a mouse, and it is usually what drives the purchase. If you do get a chance to lay your hands on one of these mice, you really should; it is just too comfortable to overlook.

The Bottom Line: Even after exposing a couple of tiny issues, the feel and tracking are too nice to pass up. On top of this, you have software to open up the customization of it, and the Sentey Lumenata Pro can be had at a great price.
