SteelSeries Sensei [RAW]

 

Simple design still offers customization options. Ambidextrous design. High-quality optical sensor.

Glossy finish is slick and uncomfortable.

The SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] is stripped down and refined, creating a solid gaming mouse, though it's not without its flaws.

SteelSeries Sensei Gaming Mouse Review: For Hardcore Gamers Only

 

What could you possibly do with a 32-bit ARM processor in your mouse? Plenty of fun stuff, as it turns out. SteelSeries's Sensei high-end gaming mouse puts slick design and powerful hardware and software at your disposal, but the $90 price tag means...

Cool design ; Excellent customizability ; Very comfortable

Pricey ; Needs a wizard to help explain tweakable options

The SteelSeries Sensei is a high-quality gaming mouse with lots of tweakable options and some very well-thought-out features, but at $90, it's definitely meant for serious gamers only.

I don't know where to really start with this thing. The back of the box reads off so many features that an ordinary man is liable to get mad. "What are all these features?!", he might say. So, knowing that you are no ordinary man, and could likely be a...

SteelSeries Sensei Pro Laser Gaming Mouse

 

Hyper customizable using the included SteelSeries Engine, Accurate on a multitude of surfaces, Wide 1-11,700 DPI sensitivity range, Comfortable feel, Powerful 32-bit ARM processor integrates many features

Plastic Top, Expensive

Performance is about being able to accurately track on a multitude of surfaces. I found that during gameplay I could quickly target enemies on either my wooden desk or my Razer Goliathus Accuracy cloth pad. During long gaming sessions I found the...

SteelSeries Sensei Gaming Mouse

 

The SteelSeries Sensei mouse is a good albeit expensive mouse. It is definitely one of the best performing solutions out there, and is right up there with the Mionix 5000. Sensor wise the Avago 9500 based mice are still in the lead, despite having...

Very good performance across the board, Near perfect ergonomics, Seven fully programmable buttons, Quality cable, Lights, LCD Display, Neat driver suite (when it works), Compatible with most mats, Low lift-off distance, Ambidextrous

High price!, Somewhat buggy driver suite, Not compatible with all mats

Sensei is one of the latest high performance mice from SteelSeries, coming with some features from its predecessor like the shape and the LCD underneath and its power is now doubled with the included 32bit ARM processor. The SteelSeries Engine...

SteelSeries Sensei

 

As I've said before, you typically don't go wrong with SteelSeries. You might pay a bit more than usual but as the old saying goes you get what you pay for. I've been trying to see if that maxim holds up with SteelSeries' Sensei, their new...

The Steelseries Sensei is probably one of the better ambidextrous mice you'll find, for gaming or just general use. The styling is attractive but the strictly middle ground ergonomics take a little getting used to, and the price might be too much at $90.

SteelSeries Sensei Mouse Review

 

This gaming-grade model reaches 11,400 dpi and features a tiny LCD to access the customization menu. Let's take a look at our test.

Ultra high resolution of 11,400 dpi ; ExactTech system enhances the user’s movements ; Elegant design with 16.8 million choices of light colors

Main left button is a little hard to click ; Ambidextrous design turns two side buttons virtually unusable ; Not-so-friendly software
