Summary: We like much of what SteelSeries has done with the Sensei, starting with the 32-bit ARM processor. It opens the door to a world of possibilities, and SteelSeries did a good job tapping into some of them. The built-in LCD display is another technology that sounds like an excuse to drive up the price, but like the integrated processor, it adds to the experience.

SteelSeries Sensei MLG Pro Grade Laser Mouse Review
4 April 2014
Conclusion: I've been using the original Sensei for almost a year now so when i started testing the MLG version almost a week ago it felt right at home. The size of the unit is perfect (unless you have small hands), the grip is also excellent (despite the rather glossy exterior) and the ExactTech features you can adjust inside the control panel really make a difference (ExactLift and ExactAim mostly) especially when playing online games.
Summary: SteelSeries have produced another cool themed product and now we are talking about the Guild Wars 2 gaming mouse. The maximum 5670 CPI value is not stellar, but the tracking is really good on many surfaces we have tried the mouse on. GW2 mouse is also equipped with red LEDs which can be customized from the Engine unified software interface.
Summary: The Sensei is designed to give gamers everywhere the advantage. The numbers do not lie, this mouse has the highest polling rate available in a gaming mouse today at 1000 Hz, and its 1 ms response rate means that you can eliminate your target even faster. A 30-million click lifespan means that it can take the heat without breaking down and its ambidextrous, soft-touch design means comfort for hands of all ages.
Pros: Designed For Gamers:, Customizable Software:, A Better Battery:, The Numbers Matter:
Conclusion: 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 Sensei to be very comfortable and that when finished with even the longest of gaming sessions I was not suffering from any type of wrist pain (something that I need to worry about with lesser mice).
Pros: 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
Conclusion: We have tested this mouse for two weeks now in our daily usage that includes working in windows and also some gaming. The testing was ran on three screens so there are big areas for the mouse to cover between the screens.
Summary: 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 issues on some mats. The Sensei definitely works best on hard mats.
Overall the Sensei is a very well rounded mouse. The shape of the mouse allows for perfect control with a palm type grip, and it feels good to hold and use.
Pros: 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
Cons: High price!, Somewhat buggy driver suite, Not compatible with all mats
Summary: 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 application helps us customize easier features like ExactSens, ExactAim, ExactAccel or FreeMove and for the top LEDs we can choose one of the 16.8 million possible colors.
