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.

SteelSeries Sensei


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...

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

SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse


Remember back in the day when you got your first computer and all the great stuff that came with it? Most computer packages today come with a cheap and basic set of accessories which includes your keyboard and mouse but after a while they can get worn...

Software isn't intuitive ; Sensitivity settings won't change automatically when you're in game and then wanting to choose classes and menu items ; No grip siding

The software can be a bit confusing to figure out at first, but once you do, it makes it a great mouse to play against your fellow gamers with. I love the fact that you can create and assign macros which makes it easier to do some game winning moves...

Steelseries Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse


Steelseries' new Sensei mouse upgrades their popular Xai model with shiny new looks, a 32-bit ARM processor, and a whopping 11,400 DPI. We find out if all the power helped us game any better.

SteelSeries Sensei


One of, if not the best mouse to come through our doors was the SteelSeries Xai. Steel Series isn't a company that normally just pumps out new products unless there is a need. But how do you follow up with a perfectly balanced, no frills gaming mouse...

Even with that opinion, it’s clear that the Sensei is an amazing mouse with absolutely no issues at all. I can’t wait to load up our LanOC Reviews profile and take it out to a few LANs before the end of this year. You couldn't ask for a better...

SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse Review


Today we have the latest SteelSeries mouse attached to our system. The Sensei has a familiar look and feel but this masks some impressive component upgrades inside such as one of the most precise gaming sensors we have ever tested... powered by a CPU...

Some great design mixed with excellent configuration options. The SteelSeries Sensei is the most powerful mouse we have tested to date. An epic product from SteelSeries.

SteelSeries Sensei gaming mouse


A great mouse with lots of bells and whistles

Comfortable and well designed mouse that feels like a premium product ; Silver exterior and multi-coloured LED are well implemented

Side buttons are not that useful or well placed ; A few superfluous features that do not add to the experience

The SteelSeries Sensei is great mouse that will go good work both in games and in regular PC use. Some of its added features may be overlooked during normal PC use, but the overall mouse experience is still top notch.

A highly responsive yet lightweight gaming mouse

Fast and responsive ; Easy switching between profiles ; LCD screen for changing settings

Not the most comfortable mouse ; Lightweight ; Feels a bit plastic
