The Sentinel Advance II Gaming Mouse from Cooler Master comes packed in a themed cardboard box, which informs us that the product is equipped with a new sensor model, the Avago 9800 which supports DPI settings from 200 to 8200:




On the side of the box we can find some logos and on the back we’ll get the full list of specifications:





The top side also opens like a book, only to reveal more information about the mouse, and a clear view of the product itself:




Besides the mouse, inside the box we will also find some leaflets, and an additional set of mouse feet:




One of the leaflets will inform us regarding the warranty details and the other will redirect us to the company website to download the drivers:




The Sentinel Advance II mouse has quite a large footprint and was specifically made for righties; the top contains a small plastic grill with multicolored LEDs along with an OLED display in center:




The back side is curved in such a way to permit a comfortable use and a palm grip:




On the left side we have two programmable buttons and a specially modeled design for the thumb; the buttons are rubberized for a nice feel and the TX button can be used for expanding the functionality of the other buttons:
