Cooler Master has presented computer enthusiasts with some stylish hardware in their Storm line of products. We have recently reviewed some enclosures from their Storm line and we found that Cooler Master put a lot of thought into them. They weren't just sweet to look at, they were designed with practicality and ease of use in mind. Cooler Master's most recent release in their Storm series is a peripheral, the Sentinel Advance gaming mouse. Right off the bat we see that the Sentinel Advance sports a dramatic 5600 DPI sensor. Now we want to see if the rest of its features will satisfy our gaming hunger or leave us craving more.

We decided to use this opportunity to test the Sentinel Advance on Cooler Master's own CS-S Battle Pad H2 (sold separately). This is another excellent product in the Storm line that lays out in a larger area than the typical mouse pad (260x210mm) and is also noticeably thinner (2mm). The H2Glide™ Cloth has a non-slip bottom grip and provides "micro-precision accuracy and highly responsive tracking rates."
Included with the Sentinel Advance is the installation CD for the Storm Tactic software with a bunch of features. Also in the box is the StormGuard™ bracket, which can be secured in an expansion slot on your case with the USB cable intertwined so that it is not easily unplugged from the USB port.
