Sentey Aphelion Elite Gamer Series Mouse Testing:
The Sentey Aphelion Elite Gamer Series Mouse was defiantly put through over a week of use and testing. During this time it was used it in everyday use, surfing the internet, photoshopping and of course some gaming. As a mouse is personal to each and every individual so how it responds in these various tasks is important in different ways to everyone. This rather subjective review is best to provide you the feedback from use rather than assigning made up numbers trying to compare one mouse to another. It's pretty easy to distinguish the likes and dislikes of a mouse through words rather than leaving it to you to decide what a 7 or 8 really means. No guessing game – here's what I liked, and here's what I hated.

Sentey Aphelion Elite Gamer Series Mouse Results:
Everyday use for a mouse is hard to argue, even in the cheapest mice. The Sentey Aphelion just works. It might not feel amazing beneath your hand, but it does indeed function as any mouse should. It points to where you expect it to point, and moves with you with your favorite DPI settings set for each application you may need. I cannot say there is anything exceptional with the mouse on an everyday setting – but it doesn't fail here either.
Working with this mouse, I had no issues navigating to where I needed to be. The DPI button often got pressed by accident causing me to be irritated by the extra unexpected sensitivity, but I eventually worked it out. Being able to set the DPI levels really helped me transition from program to program without having to do much else than press a button to work on different things. It's always nice to be able to swap while trying to be precise and or trying to be quick. I found no major issues while working with the mouse – other than just not being happy in general. I feel I've complained about the "feel" enough at this point.
Gaming has been on the back burner lately with all that "LIFE" happening. Haha. I did find time to play some good old Age of Empires III the other night and found the mouse to do just fine. It's not that the mouse doesn't track well enough and function properly; it's really just the cost of the mouse for what it feels like. I like something solid under my hand; I want it to feel at least as nice as my low end mouse at work (it's nothing special). I managed to kick my opponents butt with no issues and clicking was very confident. I'd be happy in a shooter with this mouse, just with the feedback in clicks – I just can't equate price to what is in my hand.
