The Zero-G I'm afraid is nothing really new, the similarity to the Sentinel Advance is 98% the same, except for a slight change in color schema (I liked the old one better to be honest) and an increase of 128kb (coming from 64kb) there's nothing noticeably different. From what I heard the laser was changed as well, but honestly you'll not notice any difference.
The software is roughly the same yet the mouse has an aesthetically changed jacket, the shape itself 100% similar to the old model. Now that's not at all sounding positive right? Um well no, as the initial version was a brilliant mouse... and still is. It is very hard to improve on a a near perfect mouse and that's what the Sentinel really is, a tweaked version of the original series. So think of this mouse as a small upgrade in a new jacket really. I mentioned this in the review already, but the mouse has a little bit of a bulky design, it's a lot to handle and every now and then that might be bothersome for people with small hands.
From the ground up the design of the mouse is good, the one thing it is and remains is innovative. Cooler Master has a mouse with a little OLED display screen harbored inside. And that's certainly nice stuff. And though it's cool to look at, the display screen doesn't bring a lot of additional value except the fact that you can make a logo yourself, and sure, all LED light colors can be altered as well. As simple as it is, that's just l33t stuff really as you can customize the product to your preference, making it a more personally appealing product.
On the other side, others might feel it is a little gimmicky but whatever, we like all that niche kit stuff. It's these little extras that make this mouse special. You certainly have to appreciate that.
That said, this is and remains a really nice mouse, very good build quality, we get to have the dual laser engine, extra onboard memory, multiple profiles selectable by a button, hardware DPI selection, adjustable weight and really extensive software.
And though that makes the conclusion the same as the original Sentinel, it doesn't change the fact that it remains a darn majestic and good mouse. Now it's not worth upgrading over the older model, but if you are in the market for a new one, well... be sure to try it out at your local PC shop. Next to all the ergonomics, design, features and usage I feel we can't leave out the fact that the aesthetics obviously are fantastic. It's still one of the best looking mice to date.
The Cooler Master Sentinel Zero-G can be purchased in stores soon. Expect the prices to hover at roughly 60 EUR / 70 USD.
CoolerMaster Sentinel ZERO-G game mouse review Cooler Master just released within the CM STORM line of products the Sentinel ZERO-G, an updated version of the last generation product, that TBH I still use. The Sentinel ZERO-G offers everything its older brother already has, but is tweaked, optimized and comes with a few surprises. We again spot the cute little OLED screen, adjustable weight system, superduper link braided 2M chord, and upgrade to 128kb of memory and yeah, it is just a really nice upgrade to what was previously launched.
CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 review We test the new CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 CPU cooler. Though the cooler will not be high-end performance wise, it can still manage the latest Core 2 Duo and Quad processors really well, and sure, overclocked as well. This new TX3 also supports the upcoming Core i5 processors from Intel based on Socket LGA 1156. Typically this would not be a massively interesting release of course, however... with a sales price of only 14.95 EUR/USD let's face it... the dynamic certainly changes for the better.

Dual 1200mm radiator, excellent looking reservoir and 400 liter/h pump, nice thick tubing and a very glossy water-block. A very interesting fact is .. it's not very expensive.
