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.
Pros: Customization and Software:, Super Sensitive:, ARM Processor:, LCD Display:
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

Excerpt: Danish peripheral manufacturer, SteelSeries, has made name for itself by creating PC accessories aimed at the professional gaming circuit. The company’s latest concoction is the Sensei [RAW] gaming mouse, which comes in a frost blue edition. From a technical perspective, the mouse is capable of 10.8-megapixel HD image correlation at up to 12,000 frames per second, with movement tracking of up to 150 inches per second.
Pros: Comfortable symmetrical design that is both light and solid, Customisable accuracy on the fly via a dedicated button.
Cons: Lacks coloured LED and physical custimisations, Side buttons are not that useful and occasionally get in the way.
Excerpt: In an earlier review, we had a look at the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Frost Blue gaming mouse. The [RAW] designation of that mouse referred to the stripped down nature of it compared to SteelSeries' Sensei, which is a premium offering within the Danish peripheral manufacturer’s mouse portfolio and more expensive than the [RAW]. Immediate differences compared to the [RAW] version include a different outer shell, multicoloured LED illumination, and an on-mouse LCD menu.
Pros: Comfortable and well designed mouse that feels like a premium product, Silver exterior and multi-coloured LED are well implemented
Cons: Side buttons are not that useful or well placed, A few superfluous features that do not add to the experience
Excerpt: 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 £60 price tag means it's not for the casual gamer.
