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


We received the Sensei Wireless inside a simple, well-designed, hard cardboard box, which should offer ample shipping protection to the lightweight mouse. Aside from the mouse itself, the only other items inside the box are the dock, the USB cable, a...

While working with the Sensei Wireless, we could see why many gamers liked SteelSeries' Sensei series so much in the past. While it may have a rather simple design, it is very comfortable to use and feels very sturdy as well. We should also remember...

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 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


Superb wireless performance, excellent battery life and impeccable build quality - but it's shockingly expensive

If you can't stand wires but insist on the best possible gaming performance, your choice of mouse used to be limited to Razer's £120 Mamba, but the Sensei Wireless is a fantastic, if slightly more expensive, alternative. The symmetrical design won't...

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.

The SteelSeries Sensei mouse was a hit with gamers and tournament players but now the peripheral has taken the next step in its evolution. SteelSeries has released the Sensei Wireless with an improved...

Deep software customisation ; Premium build materials ; High resolution sensor ; Impressive battery life ; Lightweight

Very expensive ; Software could be improved

Do you buy technology for the workplace?

From the rather simple and stylish box the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless has been quite a surprise. The contents are nicely packaged and although the Sensei feels very lightweight and small, it's very well built. It has a very simple ambidextrous styling...

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Mouse: Australian Review


Some people don't mind spending a few hundred dollars on a mouse. These are the same people who have the latest and greatest motherboards, graphics cards and CPUs in their PCs, super-high resolution LCDs with super-fast refresh rates, and copious...

Do you need an expensive wireless gaming mouse? Maybe. The Sensei Wireless clearly sits at the fringe of a rational person’s price range for a mouse; it’s not hugely different from your garden variety Logitechs, and it’s not hugely different from the...
