Steelseries Sensei

Mice, Peripherals


While it still comes with a high price tag, I have to say, the Steelseries Sensei is the best mouse I’ve ever tested. You do have to pay for it and I think Steelseries could have saved some money by not slapping on the silly underside display, but this is still a fantastic mouse.

It comes with rediculous sensitivity options, great accuracy, impressive features, well thought out and simple sofware and it’s incredibly comfortable to boot. It’s not perfect, there are still some improvements that could be made, but competitors and Steelseries have their work cut out for them when it comes to making a better mouse than the Sensei.


Incredibly sensitive
Very accurate
Software is clean and allows incredible fine tuning
Very comfortable
Built in hardware driver
Feature set is impressively large


Looks a bit 1950s future with silver shell
Underside display feels redundant

    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.
