Overpriced, over complicated, and non intuitive software

Summary: I had high hopes when i purchased this mouse. My main frustration with the mouse was that it was overly complicated to make it work. Even when it did, I was never able to get two of the side buttons, and the top button to work with my PC game (Battlefield 4). Ultimately I got so frustrated with this product that I completely destroyed it, and purchased a completely different brand. I will not ever go with steelseries again. Absolutely not worth the high price.
Summary: Bruh this mouse is cool when it works which is like the first 15 days you have it. The thing about the mouse is it's not the mouse that sucks it's the software required for you to use the mouse that sucks, it affects its performance so much that it becomes unbearable to use. You're stuck with constant pointless updates which can take from 1 min to 1 day, and while it's updating YOU CAN'T USE THE MOUSE.
Summary: Would have been a 5 star review based on functionality aside from the coating peeling off which now makes the mouse look awful. Looking to purchase a replacement mouse of some sort currently. Mouse was maybe 6 months old when the peeling started.
Summary: The mouse sensitivity & tracking is great, but that does not save the mouse from its downfalls. 1. It requires proprietary software to use the extra two buttons. 2. This software doesn't support GNU/Linux. 3. I even tried it on Windows and it would repeatedly crash, so I couldn't even set them up. I am returning this mouse because, for the price it is, I expect it to be fully functional.
Summary: I've had this mouse for about 3 weeks now and, as the title said, it's a GREAT mouse...when it works. So far I've come across several problems (I suppose you could call this the CONS): 1. Upon first receiving the mouse, and installing, I elected to use the SteelSeries Engine (a software application that manages settings in the mouse and game/program specific profiles). I then made a couple of profiles for a game I played.
Summary: I never post product reviews, but I felt this issue was so important to this product (and not posted about enough) that I should break my normal silence. I have ordered this mouse and it has not even arrived yet. I am going to return it the moment it arrives. I wish to save some savvy buyers who think, as I did, that this is the perfect gaming mouse some time and remorse.
Summary: While the tracking of this mouse is excellent, the ergonomics of it is not. My wrist was sore after my first session with this mouse. Tried it several times afterwards result in soreness each time. Finally had to return it.
Pros: -Tracking is excellent
Cons: -Poor ergonomics, -Small, -Side buttons near the pinky finger can be easily pressed
Summary: This was my first SteelSeries mouse that I have purchased. I have owned a lot of mice which include Logitech G400, G700, G9X (my newest one), CM Storm Recon, and other gaming mice. Pros: Shape is awesome to me and very comfortable. The best ambidextrous mouse I have tried since Microsoft. Tracking is good for a Laser mouse but not as good as Optical mice like G400 or CM Recon. Used 9H mat. Texture and weight of the mouse were really well balanced and the grip was great.
Summary: Mac compatibility is always relative, especially with mice. Manufacturers will advertise their mice as Mac compatible even if some drivers and features will not work. This was the case with the original SteelSeries World of Warcraft Mouse (the configuration tool did not run on Mac), the Razer Mamba (buttons 6 and 7 were permanently unusable), and now the Sensei.
Summary: Im Vergleich zu meiner alten Rat5 liegt diese Maus sehr schlecht in der Hand. Trotzdem lässt sie sich sehr gut nutzen und ich hätte sie wahrscheinlich nicht zurück geschickt wäre nicht nach längerer benutzung probleme mit meinem Zeigefinger aufgetreten. Durch das starke anwinkeln des Fingers zur Benutzung der Taste entstanden bei mir Schmerzen.
