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.

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

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.
Summary: From the rather simple and stylish box the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless has been quite a surprise. The contents are nicely packaged and although the Sensei feels very lightweight and small, it’s very well built. It has a very simple ambidextrous styling that doesn’t seem to shout Gamer at all… Then you plug it in! With the brilliant illumination it suddenly becomes something a little bit special (and that’s before actually using it!).
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.
Summary: I feel that I have written rather a lot about the software and not so much about the mouse, this is down to the fact that the SteelSeries MOUSE is so close to perfection, and with a few more tweaks to the software/firmware then that could be close too. This really is a great mouse and to be honest I would be more than happy to be using the SteelSeries Sensei mouse as part of my own setup, in fact I might just do that!
