    I have the first one and I got to say the most comfortable mouse I have ever used. The setup is also easy to use.

    One thing I think when it cones to marking the looks of it, I think that it comes to personnel preference. Example I think the G9x is the ugliest mouse I have ever seen, but is it a good mouse? Most definitely and awesome setup as well.

    Personal preference is right, I think the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II is one of the fugliest mice I've ever seen.

    Hey look at me I'm a GAMING mouse for GAMERS. Come and look at my LIGHTS you GAMERS. You're a GAMER right? You need LIGHTS and MESH and BLING because you're a GAMER and you like to play GAMES so need a mouse with LIGHTS designed for GAMERS just like you!

    WEIGHTS! Don't forget my WEIGHTS, they're underneath... take a look... but mind my MESH and my LIGHTS! WEIGHTS are for real GAMERS who like to GAME and GAME LARGE!

    And because you're a GAMER I've got some really GAMERTASTIC software to go me. It's got a real GAMER feel to it with a GAMER USER INTERFACE. It's got a GAMER FONT and GAMER SLIDERS and RED! Which is the colour of blood you know, and GAMERS like blood so that's cool right?

    All together:

    GAMER GAMER GAMER GAMER!

    Chant it with me!

    GAMER GAMER GAmer... gamer...

    Anyone? Anyone?

    Just me?

    The lights are actually quite useful when you're playing at night/at a LAN.

    Also mesh can be useful if you're of the sweety palm persuasion.

    As for the rest of it, I don't really care how extreme the marketing is I just want a comfortable mouse that can be do what my Habu can do. This would fit the bill if I was going budget I suppose.

    Being able to change the dpi on the fly is also very handy in photoshop and the extra buttons are handy for web surfing and general computer use. And i've not seen any optical mice yet that doesn't have at least one light

    ....so yeah, just you man !

    Had the original Sentinal Advance mouse and while it was very good the only downfall to it for me was the side buttons that you use, with your thumb as they were not really comfortable to me.

    I will stick to my MS Sidewinder Mouse as the side buttons are far more comfortable to use.

    That's what I said, until I got a G500. The clicks on the Sidewinder seem so loud in comparison.

    Does anyone use anything over ~2000 d.p.i. surely you can just turn in game sensitivity up.

    You forgot about the GAMER name!

    STORM, because your GAMING will be a STORM of DESTRUCTION with this GAMER mouse.

    SENTINEL, because you, the GAMER, stand at the front of a LEGION OF GAMERS scouting the way through FORESTS OF BATTLE.

    ADVANCE, because what kind of PLEBIAN NON-GAMER would use a NON-advanced product?

    II, because there's two. Also, GAMER!

    The only thing it's missing is the letter X. Eagerly awaiting the third revision, hopefully it will include this.

    Amen. Ridiculous marketing guff... except I did like the weight tuning on my G5. Now using a G400 which is far more sensible and probably my favourite mouse to date.

    Sent it back. Not a good shape for finger/claw grips.
