Here comes another great product from Cooler Master company. Sentinel Zero-G mouse is an improvement of the previous version and it is currently the best mouse this company can offer. Impressions from customers are excellent and this mouse can be recommended to all high demanding gamers.

Cooler Master Storm product line is specifically designed for gamers, and we saw several very interesting models of mice and other peripherals recently. Sentinel Zero-G is an improved Sentinel, which will probably be popular among players due to great cost-benefit ratio. This mouse is a bit larger than previous model, and it will suit the best for those who use claw style control. It combines superior accuracy with very attractive light effects, internal memory that keep settings and other tweaks in previous position, and this means a lot to all those who love to play games. Interesting fact is that, with a mouse, you also get Shattered Horizon game, which is a nice bonus.

At first glance, mouse seems a bit larger than average, it has a length of 13.5 centimetres, it is made of plastic with rubber side walls and a mesh with metal design on the top. It is a model designed for right-handers, it is ergonomically designed and you can be sure that the whole hand will fit perfectly. It also seems to us that mouse will suit the best for gamers with smaller hands. Weight of a mouse is 112 grams, and there are also additional five adjustable weights which can be loaded at the bottom side, which gives additional weight of 4.5 grams. In this way, the mouse can easily be customized according to your style of play. Our impression is that this is a very high quality product that can withstand long-term use and a rough handling, which is not so unusual in the gaming world. The cable is protected by braided sleeve and it has length of two meters, with gold-plated USB connector at the end, and this is a proof how good this mouse really is.
