SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Frost Blue Edition Gaming Mouse
11 June 2013
Summary: SteelSeries nailed it with the Sensei [RAW] Frost Blue Edition. The [RAW] models are definitely for the hardcore gamer, doing away with the features you hardly ever use. SteelSeries even made the mouse better where it matters performance-wise, as it now features a soft cable rather than a stiffly braided one and weighs approximately 10% less. That and the great ergonomics of the original Sensei make the mouse incredible to game with.
Pros: Great ergonomics, Low lift-off distance, Ambidextrous, Great driver suite (albeit memory intensive), Nice buttons and plenty of them, Soft, non-sleeved cable!, White, Light weight (10% less than the original Sensei)
Excerpt: With everything I have been delivered from SteelSeries since our meeting up in Las Vegas for CES 2012, I was one mouse shy of seeing the entire lineup in some form or another. The one mouse from them that I always get asked about is the Sensei and that just happened to be the one mouse I had not seen. Well, that time is over, sort of. As the title alluded to, I am in fact using the Sensei, but in a new form.
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: One of the things I found odd was that the Sensei doesn’t allow for weight customization. This is something that I’m completely fine with, as the weight distribution of the Sensei is nicely centered for all the 102 grams that it weighs, but I know some people mark it as a strike against this pro gaming mouse.

Summary: The SteelSeries Sensei is crazy cool, amazingly comfortable and just downright fun to use and play with. I think I spent an hour changing the colors on the LEDs until I settled on a configuration. Plus, I’ll probably make a couple profiles and switch between them just to have different color profiles with the exact same settings.
Excerpt: Steelseries have built up a reputation over the years for producing some of the finest mice available to the gaming audience. Their Xai has been my gaming mouse of choice for the last year as I immediately bonded with the shape, weight and size. Today we are looking at their latest mouse, the ‘Sensei’ which features a 32 bit ARM processor and a staggering sensitivity rating up to 5,700 CPI.
Conclusion: While it still comes with a high price tag, I have to say, the Steelseries Sensei is the best mouse I’ve ever tested. You do have to pay for it and I think Steelseries could have saved some money by not slapping on the silly underside display, but this is still a fantastic mouse. It comes with rediculous sensitivity options, great accuracy, impressive features, well thought out and simple sofware and it’s incredibly comfortable to boot.
Pros: Incredibly sensitive, Very accurate, Software is clean and allows incredible fine tuning, Very comfortable, Built in hardware driver, Feature set is impressively large
Cons: Looks a bit 1950s future with silver shell, Expensive, Underside display feels redundant
Test SteelSeries Sensei – Souris Ambidextre | PC / MAC
26 April 2013
Summary: Dur de ne pas qualifier finalement la SteelSeries Sensei de souris parfaite, car après quelques semaines d’utilisation, j’ai fini par m’y habituer, par adorer sa précision hors norme, son design simple et sa prise en main innée, et tout cela sans finalement lui trouver de défauts, en tous cas aucun majeur.
Excerpt: La Sensei est une évolution de la Xai avec quelques améliorations qui en font la souris parfaite ou presque. Ainsi, le revêtement métallisé ne subit plus les assauts du temps et la molette est plus agréable. Pour le reste, elle conserve les atouts d’une ergonomie sans faille et d’un capteur ultra-performant.
Pros: Forme idéale, Belle finition, Réglages pointus, Précision diabolique, Confort parfait
