The Sentinel Advance II enhanced what was already an excellent mouse to begin with three years ago. Because it’s a huge peripheral, it’s not suited for players with tiny hands or those who prefer lighter and more agile gaming mice. The Sentinel Advance II compensates for its bulkiness with high sensitivity, but in practice, we doubt someone will exceed 5,000 or 6,000 dpi when playing. The body is comfortable and provides a firm grip. Despite the overcrowded interface, the application does its work without much fuss. The virtual buttons added by the TX feature were an intelligent solution to not overpopulate the body of an earlier model with unreachable buttons. The dents on the scroll wheel make it very precise.
- High sensitivity level of 8,200 dpi

- OLED display lets the user know the dpi setting on the fly
- Friendly configuration application

- TX feature virtually doubles the number of assignable buttons
- Rapid fire function
- Cloth-wrapped cable
We really didn’t find a single weak point to report. The size of the mouse might be an issue, but it’s more of a personal preference than a problem with the device’s design, and there are always players who look for a bigger mouse.
