SteelSeries Sensei Wireless


The SteelSeries Sensei Wireless is a high-quality gaming mouse, but the high price makes it hard to ignore some issues.

Ambidextrous, 8-button design. Programmable, with optional battery-saving mode. Visual indicators for connectivity and battery levels. Adjustable 8,200dpi sensor. Wireless and wired options

Minor lag in wireless mode. Sometimes slow to connect. Battery charging requires the PC to be on

High-end gaming peripherals may be pricey, but competitive gamers prize premium mice, like the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless ($159.99), for their pinpoint accuracy, minimal latency, and programmable features. The wireless follow-up to the SteelSeries...

Steelseries Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse Review


Most advanced users, especially those that are interested in gaming, have almost certainly heard of SteelSeries, a reputable manufacturer of gaming-related peripherals and hardware. The company originates from Denmark and today has offices in the US...

To summarize, the SteelSeries Sensei undoubtedly is a very good gaming mouse, but is it good enough to justify such a price premium? That's largely up to individual tastes, so you can decide that for yourselves. Personally, it's difficult to recommend...

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless review: A gorgeous mouse with a gargantuan price tag


The Sensei Wireless is one of the best wireless gaming mice on the market; it's also one of the most expensive.

Adjustable everything ; Standard SteelSeries lighting doubles as battery-life indicator ; Hybrid wired/wireless operation

Battery renders it somewhat back heavy ; On the small side (if you have big hands) ; Very expensive

Wired or wireless, the Sensei Wireless is an impressive mouse. Few wireless devices offer such high polling rates, and SteelSeries packs an impressive amount of customization into its software. The battery-status indicators, while superfluous, are...

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Laser Mouse Review and Ratings


This gaming mouse has a huge feature set to match its two-fistfuls-of-dollars price: a giant resolution range, fine software, and advanced tweakables like angle-snapping. It's also a rare elite mouse that's great for lefties and righties alike.

Ambidextrous design ; Huge resolution range ; Easy-to-read, deep configuration software

Expensive ; Requires frequent recharges ; Usually takes 30 to 60 seconds to reawaken from sleep ; Stores just two resolution settings

Overall, we very much enjoyed our time with the Sensei Wireless. It feels solid in a medium-size hand, and its ambidextrous design is both sleek and attractive. It has a raft of features we appreciate in any mouse—such as acceleration, a wide-ranging...

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Review (Page 1 of 4)


Some questions have obvious answers. For example, what is the difference between a dress and a skirt? Uhh... actually, I am a guy, so I really did not know the difference until someone told me three months ago. As it turned out, my colleague Aaron was...

From the day I have opened the box of the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless, I knew it was the one. And why should this be a question in the first place? For the last ten years or so, no matter how many computer mice cross the floor here at APH Networks, I...

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Review


Using the latest in wireless technology, the Sensei Wireless laser gaming mouse delivers the same high-performance as the original Sensei but offers more flexibility.

Simple & elegant ; Option to use as wireless or wired ; Metal charging dock ; Lots of options to tweak ; LED customisation – 16.8M colours ; Excellent performance ; Easy to use software


Sensei Wireless adopts the motto: “Ditch the wires, keep the performance.” And this bold statement is certainly very true.

Labs Brief: SteelSeries Sensei wireless laser mouse


This is one pricey mouse, so what do you get for almost $230? Just about the best implementation of charging available, which in a wireless mouse is tremendously important, and we've seen some pretty terrible attempts at that. The Sensei is simply...

If price is no barrier, this is a fantastic mouse.
