I had the CM Storm and I hated it. It's got a lot of neat features but mine wasn't very good quality. Don't know if anyone else had issues but the bass from my sub would make the cursor move which I've never had happen from any other mouse. I quickly sold it and got something else.

I have the CM Sentinel and use it at about 4000dpi in BFBC2. It OWNS. and I can switch the dpi on the fly. I have each setting with a different LED color so I can know right away which one I am at. I have used it on 5600dpi but its so sensitive.

What kind of grip do you use?

If you are a palm gripper, the Sentinel might be up your alley... If you are fingertip or claw, the G9X would be much better suited.

I made the mistake of buying the Sentinel, I badly wanted to try it... Being a fingertip/claw user myself, I did not get along well with it. It's a good mouse, but NOT for those grip styles... Also the buttons on the Sentinel started to loosen up and 'jiggle' a little only after 2-3 days of use... I retired it and sold it after using it 4 days. I got a Cyborg R.A.T. 7 out of curiosity; love it, and have not looked back since.
