I think it's good for desktop

Li Yanling, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: I think it's good for desktop. I don't like the wireless receiver is combined into the charger, as I want to use it for my thinkpad, it's impossible now.

Great mouse for Palm style - Not so great for Claw grip

Bruce P., Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: I use a claw grip, which seemed to work fine with this mouse. I would have liked to give this mouse 5 stars, but after a while, and using the claw grip, the mouse was harder to manipulate in gaming. I would suggest that this mouse is much better suited for people who like to "palm" their mouse and leave their fingers draped over the peripheral. Quality is certainly there and everything is very robust with this mouse.

Top Tier Mouse With One Slight Problem

Marcous Khaligh "quick^", Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: Great mouse! Light for a wireless and holds a longe charge. I typically get 13-14 hours of non-stop use. I would give it a five if the scroll wheel didn't wear down so fast. I have never owned a mouse that makes noise when you scroll. Unfortunate but still very high quality mouse.

Spencer_L3, NCIX.com
2 September 2014
  • Summary: This mouse overall seems very well designed and built. However I have had issues with the aluminum body feeling slippery and getting sweaty after prolonged use. The rubber feet as well (keeping in mind they are rated to last just as long as the rest of this well built mouse) look and sometimes feel like they would be the first to quickly deteriorate, however after trying them on several surfaces they do maintain an impressive glide and minimal scratching even on harder...
  • Pros: Illumination is good, solidly designed and built, very precise and good feeling
  • Cons: buttons in the way over-sensitive

A Highly Customizable, Quality, Ambidextrous Mouse

Mike C., Newegg
8 August 2014
  • Summary: Just a warning, when installing the drivers, it popped up a restart window about 20 seconds before the installation was completed. You don’t want to hit yes and restart before it has completed the installation, so be sure it’s finished when you do. The little manual you get in the box is a multilingual manual of which the English instruction section is barely 4 pages of the 43 pages that it consists of. Regardless, it has pretty much all you need to know.
  • Pros: * The big selling point of this mouse for me is the customizable software. You can program any button to do anything you can think of. I’ve been using this mouse’s customizable buttons to play World of Warcraft and combining it with the AutoHotkey macro program to do some pretty amazing stuff in that game. You can assign game profiles so you don’t have to reprogram the buttons between different games, alter the sensitivity (CPI) on the fly, mouse lift height, accelera...
  • Cons: * I am right handed, and the first thing I noticed when I started using this mouse was that I very often, accidently pressed the thumb buttons on the right side of the mouse with my ring and pinky fingers. This then activated whatever function was assigned to these buttons and usually messed things up on the screen. Being an ambidextrous mouse, this may be hard for you to avoid doing depending on how you hold the mouse and whether or not you have a fidgety hand like m...

Lots of options, not liking the feel though

Matt Z., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Drivers not included: Is that a con? For some yes, but I can’t remember the last time I actually used the cd that came with a product. I always hit the website expecting a newer release to download. General use and gaming was fine, no issues in BF4 or any other games I tried. Prior to this I was using another gaming mouse (Razer DeathAdder 3500DPI), so I was very used to using a mouse made for a right hand. I noticed it more than I expected to.
  • Pros: - Lots of options in the software: profiles, sensitivity, lights, LCD images - Customizable LCD image (underside) and LED’s - Smooth glide on any surface I tried it on (old desk, paper, mouse pad) and no noticeable skips or jumps - The LCD underneath is also a ‘menu’ to customize your mouse or change your profile - Is this for a Lefty or Righty? This mouse covers both and the buttons and software can be adjusted to suit either.
  • Cons: - It feels a little slippery to the touch - The app is really slow to load on Windows 8.1 - Kind of pricey for a mouse given that it isn’t form fitted to your hand

Michael B., Newegg
30 July 2014
  • Summary: The Sensei was larger than I thought it would be, going by the pictures, and is reasonable comfortable to use. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks for 10 hour days, doing AutoCAD for work. I know, "not gaming", but the accuracy and control is necessary for the speeds I have to work at in the office. All in all, I can't complain about comfort. I do wish it was a tad bigger.
  • Pros: >Laser tracking >Smooth travel >medium weight (I actually consider this a 'con' - but I like really heavy mice, and most don't) >Solid, but soft clicks >Accurate tracking >Surprisingly not a finger print magnet
  • Cons: >Complicated and awkward software >Default button setup makes no sense (more on this later) >Kinda small (but I like larger mice - specifically the G9x - and this is only a little smaller than that. More on this later)

High end gaming mouse, but at a price

Michael B., Newegg
29 July 2014
  • Summary: I found the multiple color LEDs can be a distraction when using the mouse. You can tune down the Brightness, or load Black as a color, to eliminate any distraction. I am not a serious gamer, but recommend this product for its program-ability (but it comes at significant cost).
  • Pros: 1. Ambidextrous (good for you left handed people). 2. Can be used right out-of-the box, with the default settings. Or use the Bottom LCD display to select one of up to five Profiles you can load into the mouse. Just hold the CPI button down for three seconds and release, then select the desired Profile with the Up/Down mouse buttons. 3. To create Profiles, download the latest SteelSeries Engine software from the Web, which includes: [a] ExactSens (for CPI), [b] ExactL...
  • Cons: 1. I kept clicking the Top right hand side button, by accident, when sliding the mouse to the left. So I disable both buttons on the Right hand side. By default these two buttons are Up and Down (which you can do with the wheel). I did like the default Forward and Back programming on the two Left hand side buttons. 2. Not an inexpensive mouse. 3. No DVD or CD (minor). Just download the latest SteelSeries Engine from their Web site. I had zero issues using the software...
