Steelseries Sensei

Mice, Peripherals

The Mouse

The casing for the mouse is silver topped plastic, which looks a bit 1950’s futuristic and is actually very reflective; as you can see my silhouette. It’s also incredibly smooth to the touch, should make for a comfortable grip. The sides are black rubberised plastic, with another small plastic section in the centre of the front buttons.

This mouse isn’t festooned with buttons but there is a fair few. The front has the left and right click ones as expected, with a central scroll wheel and DPI switcher. Each side also has a pair of its own ones, sitting just above the thumb and finger grips.

The rear of the silver casing has a translucent Steelseries logo and a small translucent spot behind the scroll wheel. These areas light up according to the software when the mouse is powered on.

The underside features four large teflon pads to keep things smooth. According to Steelseries they cover 16% of the base, making for an even spread of the Sensei’s weight.

Just underneath the laser sensor and Steelseries logo is a small LCD display. Using this you can adjust settings on the mouse without the drivers installed thanks to the internal ARM processor and onboard memory. You can also load in your own custom image for epenis measuring purposes.

The Sensei is not a huge mouse, but it’s a little larger than my previous favourite, the Roccat Kova.

    How do you configure the graphics below? Is there any difference of the steelseries engine to that of previous steelseries drivers? would there be in app sensing to find which app is running? smth like the Kone?

      As far as I’m aware, you need to manually switch which profile you have setup, but it only takes a couple seconds.

    Great review. Thanks for taking the time to write this up. Finding the perfect mouse for yourself is hard. But having multiple reviews on items helps out. Trying to find something to replace my Diamondback still :) this mouse seems like a good option to put on my list.

      I would heartily recommend it. The only caveat to this review that I should add, is due to the smooth surface, the top does collect a lot of dirt. It needs cleaning once every couple weeks unless you don’t mind finger marks.
