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.
SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse Review (Electronics)

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: Stripped back, but still packs a punch Stripped back, but still packs a punch Still the same great comfort and performance. Less expensive than the original Sensei. Less features. Still not “cheap”. Hot on the heals of my SteelSeries KANA review, I have in my sweaty little hand the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW]. Near the end of last year, I reviewed the original Sensei mouse and it scored a 10 out of 10. I genuinely could find no fault with it.
Pros: Still the same great comfort and performance. Less expensive than the original Sensei.
Excerpt: 13 Flares 13 Flares × 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.
