Hands on with the CM Storm Sentinel

Computex 09: Feels very comfortable in the hand

In all fairness we didn't think too highly about the CM Storm Sentinel mouse, as over the years we've seen huge amounts of gaming mice and very few of them actually stack up to be anything out of the ordinary, but we have to admit that we were wrong to judge it ahead of getting some hands on time with it.

The Sentinel has a little bit too much bling for our taste, but it's very comfortable to hold, no matter which way you prefer to hold your mouse when you play games, as it's slim enough around the rear to be held with your thumb and pinkie, yet just the right height and length to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.

We're not so sure about how often you'll need to use the 5000dpi setting. The demo model was set to 5000dpi and it made Crysis impossible to play, as the least movement of the mouse made the gun sight go all over the screen. However, this is hardly going to be an issue as the supplied software application allows you to set the dpi to suit your gaming style. It also allows you to program the buttons and even save five different profiles.

We also have to say that we really like the new mouse mats that CM Storm will be launching, especially the really large, silky smooth one that a certain German case retailer described to us as being as smooth as "silk stocking on a woman;s leg".
