CM Storm Sentinel III Review

Introduction

The original Sentinel was one of the first CM Storm products we can remember reviewing here at the hallowed OC3D secret moonbase and the Zero G variant, now nearly 5 years old, has stood the test of time both in featureset and quality of the components. 

Since then there has been a Sentinel II which took the laser sensor option and increased DPI from 5600 to 8200. Today we have the Sentinel III, a mouse which has reverted to the optical sensor so beloved of so many gamers. Of course CM Storm haven't been sat idly upon their laurels in the intervening time, and the Sentinel III now boasts all the features which we've come to expect from our modern gaming mice.

Technical Specifications

The Avago sensor range bestrides the gaming mouse world like a colossus, being found in nearly every mouse of note. Debates as to whether the optical or laser variants are better have raged long into the night. Here at OC3D we can appreciate both sides and even in our personal gaming choices we place more importance upon comfort and usability than the minutiae of sensor differences. They are all so damn good these days that only the top 0.5% of people will have their gaming performance altered by those fine margins. For the rest of us you can be assured that the Avago 3988 Optical sensor which beats at the heart of the Sentinel III is great enough that you'll run out of talent long before you reach the limits of the sensor.

Add to that sensor a hefty amount of onboard memory, adjustable weight, full RGB colour offerings and an OLED display, and you can be assured that the Sentinel III is packed with the latest technology.

Very nice all round pointer, the macro programmable buttons are always a feature I look for now, having Alt, Shift & Ctrl under my thumb makes for more productive sessions of Blender or Photosoup. Currently I'm not in the market for a new mouse but the Storm seems to be my next goto clicker.

On another note I'm in love with CM at the moment, my Storm headset is out of warranty and they are sending me a new cable for it. #awesomesauce #MichielBosIsaGodQuote
