Cooler Master is the company to beat when it comes to gaming mice, even though they're one of the newer companies. The Inferno is an excellent mouse with a perfect feel for my hand. For those with smaller hands, you'll probably want to use a palm grip (that's what it is designed for). However if you have larger hands like me, using the claw grip is effective. This is how I prefer to hold it.
The Inferno has a rubber coating on the sides which really helps dealing with sweat for long gaming sessions. Now if only the surface had this feature! For some reason it is a glossy black which easily shows smudging, and you'll want to take your hand off of it every now and then to wipe off sweat.
One thing I like compared to the Storm Sentinel is the textured LMB and RMB, again to hide smudging and reduce slip. Also, the Inferno has the most buttons of all CM mice. 11 buttons! This will certainly help anyone looking to use multiple macro-scripts and things like that.
The software on CM mice is the best I've ever seen and allows for a ton of customization (the most I've ever seen in fact). Sadly, you can't change the LED lighting color of the Storm Inferno without changing profiles. Each of the 4 profiles has its own color and you can't change that. Not an issue really, but this is quite different than the Storm Sentinel which allows you to fully change LED color. You can still choose whether or not the LEDs will always be on, light up on click, turn them off, or pulsate/breathe.
The Inferno has five preset DPI profiles due to the above-average amount of onboard memory. 4000 DPI is the max on this mouse and it uses a single laser sensor. It seems more or less the same as the Sentinel's twin laser sensor - including accuracy and lift-off distance. Overall this is an excellent mouse for palm grip (smaller to average sized hands) and even claw grip (larger hands). My only complaint is the glossy surface, but that's easy to get over.
