The Sentinel Advance is contained in a sleek black box with red accents, continuing the Cooler Master Storm theme we’ve been accustomed to seeing, and the front features a clear front panel which leaves the mouse inside fully visible.
Once inside the box, the package is very minimal; just the mouse and StormGuard (to protect your mouse from being stolen if your computer is unattended, say, at a LAN party), and that’s it. No installation disk or user’s manual; frankly, I figured they were missing. As I soon found out though, Cooler Master has everything you need available on their website, and to get started the Sentinel is entirely plug-and-play, so no worries about having a mouse in your hand that’s about as useful as a brick without any driver disk. You can just plug it in, and even configure it driverless, it just works from the get-go.
Let’s take a closer look at the Sentinel Advance itself.
