CM Storm Sentinel Zero-G (SGM-6001-KLLW1-GP) Twin Laser Gaming Mouse Review

  1. Introduction
  2. Packaging and Specifications
  3. Footnote
  4. Initial Impressions and User Experience
  5. Conclusion

I had 2 of these units, one of them sent to me later. With the first packaging the product box says its Sentinel Zero-G, but the base of the mouse clearly said Sentinel Advance. For a moment I thought it was the wrong packaging so I got another one and this turned out to be the same.

The mouse and the packaging had the same Serial number. So its obvious it should have the same model number.

Physical dimensions are the same by the looks of specs comparison. I had a word with Coolermaster India and this is the reply I’ve received:

There were two versions of the Sentinel – Advance and Zero-G  i.e. SGM-6000-KLLW1-GP and SGM-6001-KLLW1-GP respectively. The one we have given you is Zero-G i.e. SGM-6001-KLLW1-GP. The Zero-G model is the newer one and the changes were new body colour (grey), memory upgrade from 64K to128K and a few tweaks to the sensor.

The box wrongly mentions it as SGM-6001-GLLW1-GP. There is no such model. It’s a clerical mistake and rectified in the recent batches. The laser Sensor sticker is missing from the sample but present on retail products. I hope this clears the confusion.

We good? Yeah. However, its best if the model number in CM Storm’s Zero-G’s page is corrected:

SEAGATE IronWolf 110 ZA240NM10001 240GB NAS SSD Review

The Seagate Ironwolf 110 SSD is made for small to SOHO NAS arrays. While NAS bays do provide cages with both 3.5"/ 2.5" drives, there are some really small form factor NAS specifically made for 2.5" SATA drives for mechanical and solid-state. There are also 3.5"/2.5" hybrid NAS that uses SSDs as additional caching for the primary storage array. Naturally, this would make a market for NAS specific SSDs. This is the Seagate Ironwolf variant. The Ironwolf 110SSD comes with a set of its marketed features- AgileArray firmware and DuraWrite are two of these firmware specific implementations. These NAS SSDs do that have a 5-year warranty with an included 2-year data recovery support. Though the provision for this data recovery support varies between countries.
