SteelSeries Ikari Laser Mouse Review

14 January 2011
  • Conclusion: This mouse is a vast improvement on any of the standard mice that can be purchased; I feel one of the better gaming mice out there but there a few faults with it and it is not quite the perfect mouse that some reviews have made out.

  • Pros: Great shape, Good tracking, Great price (~38€ in Finland), No drivers needed
  • Cons: No key binding possibilities, High lift distance

  • Summary: I've used quite a few mice over the years; personally I really enjoy getting a new mouse. Sometimes getting a new mouse can take a bit of adjustment, but that's not the case with the Ikari, other than the slightly different feel of the mouse, it's pretty easy to get onto, and thanks to the...

21 March 2008
  • Summary: SteelSeries have succeeded to produce not one, but two mice with both excellent ergonomics and tracking capability. They are both sold under the Ikari brand, but employ two very different sensors as the review shows.
  • Pros: Tracking, Coherent tracking at insane speeds, Comfort, Durability, Adequate amount of buttons, Button placement, Pretty, Excellent build quality, Braided cable, Runs fine without driver installed
  • Cons: Lift-off distance on some surfaces, Very picky about the surface, Scroll wheel bug, Limited driver

  • Excerpt: Gaming on the PC has come a very long way from the initial days of First Person Shooter games like Wolfenstein 3D. With the newer and faster paced 3D first person shooter games, better control means higher scores, more kills and greater frag counts.
  • Pros: Very comfortable with smooth, even tracking and precise response, high resolution that can be adjusted on the fly.
  • Cons: No wireless model available.

  • Excerpt: All through testing I experienced nothing but comfort and that neat feeling only quality can give you. Like all good things though it comes at a price and the Ikari Laser is certainly not cheap coming in at around US$65.

SteelSeries Ikari Laser Gaming Mouse

techPowerUp!
2 February 2008
  • Summary: This mouse is nothing short of amazing and the only thing holding it back from getting the highest score available is the scroll wheel problems that it has. At €79.99 you are expecting a flawlessly performing mouse, but the Ikari cannot claim that because of the scroll wheel.
  • Pros: Excellent tracking, Very good ergonomics, Design, Lift-off distance, Good performance at any sensitivity, Profile display, High / Low sensitivity LEDs, Durable, Perfect button placement for the majority of users, Exceptional glide, Looks good
  • Cons: Expensive, Scroll wheel problems (random press and jam), Not for left handed people

  • Excerpt: With the exception of the size and the overly bright indicator LEDs, this is a very sound product. To spice up the pot a bit more the price is also very reasonable for a high quality optical mouse.

SteelSeries Ikari Laser Mouse Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
25 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Is a mouse just a mouse… No! For many years I thought a mouse was a mouse. You just plug it in and use it. Some had more buttons than others, some had a scroll wheel, and more recently some were laser not standard optical (queue Dr Evil style “Laser” quotes).
  • Pros: Solid performance, stores profile on the mouse, comfortable
  • Cons: No adjustable weights, may not be for the casual gamer
