Good mouse, bad company

Michael B., Newegg
6 December 2015
  • Summary: Ok, the full story is I originally had a Sensei (just the 'regular' one; the flagship). That one got broken during the update to Windows 10 (don't ask me how, I couldn't figure it out). It took 2 months, and 5 support tickets to complete the RMA.
  • Pros: >Laser sensor >Comfortable to hold >Really good battery life >Able to play & charge with the cable >Pretty sharp looking when charging on the base >Best software I've ever used for a peripheral (SteelSeries Engine 3, *NOT* 2. 2 is Horrible)
  • Cons: >The 2.4Ghz signal might be a little over-powered; interferes a little with my wireless headset >Charging the mouse via the dock interferes with the sleep cycle of Windows 10. It will wake you computer up, and keep it awake (yes, I played with which devices are allowed to wake the computer, even ...

Mouse lights are cool. Functions well when charged

Firehawk, Amazon
19 April 2015
  • Summary: Mouse lights are cool. Functions well when charged. Charging base requires real estate on desktop. Moved to this from Logitech. Slight buyers regret.

Good but overpriced

RPostWVU, Amazon
18 October 2014
  • Summary: I feel this mouse is overpriced. I had a Logitec MX and it was all around better, just no fancy lights. I find the wireless range to be about 6', battery life is good enough, doesnt work well on wood, couches, carpets, my leg as compared to the Logitec.

Ups and downs

chris c., Newegg
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Considering returning this because of how uncomfortable the mouse is. Then again this is the best wireless mouse out there and it's very comfortable to just take this mouse to my bed.
  • Pros: Every pro is advertised.
  • Cons: Plastic. They should have used metal for a 160 dollar mouse. There are computers (not good ones) cheaper than this. Charging port could have been designed to hold the mouse a bit better. I have to press on the mouse to make sure it's charging sometimes. Ambidextrous. at 160 dollars a mouse, they ...

General gaming mouse

Karen K., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: It has an awesome sensor and a lot of options. I just don't get the feeling this was made to last very long and it has so many odd things about it that makes me say "Nope, I wouldn't get this." However, some of the problems can be fixed with a software update and a price reduction.
  • Pros: When I first received the mouse I was a little let down. The box is very basic providing the same six points of interest in multiple languages. The biggest let down was the "Certified for Windows Vista" sticker on the bottom. You know the hard core gamers listed on the box use Vista to win all th...
  • Cons: Its certified for Windows Vista and makes no mention of Windows 8 \ 8.1 . Sorry, but I can't help but wonder why we are still certifying things for Vista. It feels cheap, lots of flimsy plastic, buttons feel like they would give out after a lot of gaming (isn't it made for gaming?). I would have ...

Lots of cool features, but roaming cursor

Michael S., Newegg
31 July 2014
  • Summary: In comparison to the roaming issue with the mouse, my other mouse which is a wireless mouse with only a 1250 DPI does not experience any of these issues, nor does my backup wired mouse which runs at 3000 DPI.
  • Pros: Lots of options for customization. Braided cloth cable and gold plated USB gives the feeling of being a really nice high quality unit. There are LED lights located on the scroll wheel, directly above the scroll wheel, and on the back of the mouse. These can be set to a wide selection of colors, w...
  • Cons: Minor problems first. The mouse is a little heavy compared to most, and might be an issue for some users, though I personally like the weight of it. The buttons on the side of the mouse are easy to click by mistake but after you adjust to having them you will click them less and less until you do...

Bells, whistles, and lasers, oh my!

Mindy S., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: The silver cover is plastic, not "steel" or metal. That's probably a good thing, but just in case you thought it was metal, it is not. With all the settings to choose from, you could spend hours testing them as I did, but in the end you'll probably end up using the default setting with custom LED...
  • Pros: Smoother aiming and more predictable pointing is noticeable. The "mouse" functionality is top-notch. Improved image editing accuracy. On the fastest default profile, I can draw huge circles faster than my computer can render it without jagged edges when you zoom in. I compared this to a basic non...
  • Cons: Color LEDs use pulse width modulation and are visually distracting. You can see this by moving the mouse rapidly back and forth. Instead of a blur, you'll see a waveform of lines. Analog dimming would look better but use more power and put off heat. I prefer to turn all the LEDs off except the wh...

I'd give more stars for any documentation whatsoever

Brent Butler, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm another one who can't help the need to compare this to my Logitech G700. In use, I don't find any find any practical difference between the performance of the two mice. However, in shape, the G700 fits my hand much better than the Sensei.
