SteelSeries Sensei - a sexy gaming mouse with inner beauty

SteelSeries Sensei Review – SteelSeries Sensei is like the sexier and badder version of the SteelSeries Xai (check out SteelSeries Xai Review at Craving Tech). It improves one of the most advanced gaming mouse in the world into the next level.

What’s so good about SteelSeries Sensei and does it worth upgrading from SteelSeries Xai to SteelSeries Sensei? Let’s check it out.

I’ll mostly be talking about my opinion on the design and experience, though. If you want to know about the main features, dimensions, and all that, feel free to read it on SteelSeries website as I don’t want to repeat them all over in this SteelSeries Sensei review post.

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Sexy Look

The design is one of the best I’ve ever seen – from the moment I saw the official product photos when it was released til the moment I actually saw it with my own eyes. It’s just.. sexy.

I was a bit skeptical at first about the new metal coating because I totally loved SteelSeries Xai and I never hold a mouse with a metal coating before. Would it feel soft? Would it be comfortable? Would it be cool to the touch? There were many questions before I had the mouse arrived at my doorstep. In the end, it somehow feels plastic-y, yet smoother. Overall, it feels great to the skin (and no cooling touch as predicted), easier to clean, and sexy.

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Custom illumination

The sexy look (yeah, yeah, I know I’ve said the word “sexy” many times already) is enhanced further with the new illumination in a few places, a surprising move made by SteelSeries. In the past, we would have never seen this in their peripherals. I guess they must have listened that some gamers love the extra bling-bling on their toys. Though if you still hold that “keep-it-minimalistic” attitude, you don’t have to worry, because you can turn these extra bling-bling off the Sensei.

With SteelSeries Sensei, you can also fully customize the color of the wheel, the CPI indicator, and the back (where the SteelSeries logo is). Using the SteelSeries Engine software, you can practically set it to any color you like to match with your gaming desktop area or your gaming keyboard.

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Button design

The SteelSeries Sensei has 8 buttons overall (left, right, middle, 4 side buttons, and the CPI button – to switch between two sensitivity settings). I love the different tactile feedback on these buttons as they are all somehow different to one another. For example, clicking rapidly on the left mouse button is quite easy to allow those who need to take out their handguns to finish an enemy off. However, you can’t do the rapid-clicking with the middle mouse button as it somewhat has a heavier tactile feedback. It is clear that the SteelSeries team has gone into the right research when they designed this mouse (they’ve actually asked some well-known hardcore gamers to test this mouse out during the design and refinement phase).

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Customisation

If you look at the features, SteelSeries Sensei can be customised the way you want it – from the colors as I’ve explained earlier into the technical aspects such as the lifting distance, acceleration, and other bits and pieces. These customisations (ExactSens, ExactAim, etc) are calculated directly by the mouse because SteelSeries Sensei is actually powered by a 32 bit ARM processor (like a Pentium 75 MHz)!

As overkill as this may sound, the built-in processor helps in calculating and processing these SteelSeries technologies, therefore avoiding any delays and free up the resources used in your computer.

You can also upload your clan’s logo or any bitmap picture into the LCD (located underneath the mouse) for further customisation and to prevent theft at LAN parties (since you can prove that the mouse is yours).

Not to mention that using the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record advanced macros and also set-up profiles (even auto-profiles when a specific game is launched). You can store a few profiles into the mouse so you can carry it to a LAN party or competition with all your macros and customisations intact.

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Impressions and Gaming Experience

SteelSeries Sensei is comfortable and the size is just right (which is exactly similar like the Xai’s). It’s quite light and small compared to some of the gaming mouse out there in the market. If you don’t have a huge hand, the SteelSeries Sensei will serve you well and beyond. There is also a thumb rest area, though it’s not quite apparent.

As far as gaming experience, SteelSeries Sensei rocks. It glides smoothly on my SteelSeries 4HD mouse pad and produces high accuracy. My aim goes to where I want it to go and getting headshots in Battlefield 3 Beta is as easy as a walk in the park. Killing the Special Infected in Left 4 Dead 2 was a no-brainer too as the mouse helped my aim to be smooth and accurate.

The CPI (or most know it as DPI) can be adjusted from 1 to 5,700 CPI (for the default) and can also be boosted to 11,400 CPI! Though I only game in around 4,300 CPI, there are certain occasions where you might need a 10,000 CPI. For example, in Call of Duty: Black Ops, if you get stunt by the stun grenade, your aim sensitivity will be reduced drastically. Using a button to quickly boost the CPI into 10,000, say, you can “cheat” your way out of this problem ;) Nevertheless, no matter what you do, SteelSeries Sensei gives you the ability – it is then up to you what you want to do with it (or whether you want to use it).

SteelSeries Sensei vs SteelSeries Xai

Now this is probably the question that everyone asks, especially those who own the SteelSeries Xai. Is it a worthy upgrade from SteelSeries Xai to SteelSeries Sensei? Well, if you have the money, I’d recommend to sell your Xai and get the Sensei. Though the ergonomic and mouse design are the same overall, the underlying power has been upgraded somewhat. Also, the increase in sexiness and the illumination will keep you happy for many months to come.

However, if you are tight on budget and you already rock your games with SteelSeries Xai, I honestly don’t really see a point in upgrading. You might as well keep the money and perhaps upgrade your mouse pad or keyboard.

SteelSeries Sensei Review – Conclusion

SteelSeries Sensei is a sexy gaming mouse which proves that you shouldn’t just look at its appearance. There is an inner beauty in this mouse, as it is equipped with its own processor, fully customisable to suit your gaming style, and simply excel in tracking, accuracy, and control.

Having a SteelSeries Sensei doesn’t mean that you will automatically become a great gamer but you can game better. A great tennis player can fully utilise a high quality racket and unlock his/her potential. It’s the same case with a gaming mouse – as you can aim more accurately, steadily, and comfortably with the SteelSeries Sensei.

The SteelSeries Sensei RAW is the pure and essential performance edition of the most award-winning, critically acclaimed gaming mouse in history. Featuring tournament-grade components, brilliant blue illumination, 7 programmable buttons, gaming grade UPE material feet and support of the SteelSeries Engine, it is the essence of performance.

SteelSeries Sensei [Raw] Mouse Frost Blue Edition

SteelSeries Sensei is the original mouse extraordinaire from SteelSeries. It's the worlds most customizable mouse and features its own 32bit ARM processor (which allows double the sensitivity, to 11,400 DCPI), and can be configured through a built-in LCD menu system on the back with support for up to 16.8 million colors.

SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] did away with processor, the LCD menu system and the on-board memory. If you don't travel around the world as a pro gamer, if you don't plug into tournament computers and if you don't need all the colors, the [RAW] will deliver the same world-class performance and same amazing customization options using the SteelSeries Engine. The SteelSeries [RAW] Frost Blue is the essence of performance and embodies everything we ever learned about mice.

Advanced Macros

Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei RAW Frost Blue. The macros can not only be layered, include keystrokes and precise timing, but they can span across your peripherals allowing you to have a mouse button assigned to perform keyboard strokes and mouse clicks in the same macro.

Frost Blue Illumination

The frosty blue illumination is capable of several modes of operation including: solid, slow, medium, and fast pulse. You can also vary the intensity of the illumination between low, medium, and high. For those of you who don’t like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination. It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them brightnesses, you can quickly switch between profiles and also ways know which profile is active.

Plug, Play, Win

There’s no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei [RAW] Frost Blue. It is completely capable of operating flawlessly with default settings. However, to unlock the potential of your mouse, download the SteelSeries Engine software. The software provides you with the ability to customize CPI settings, LED intensity, programmable buttons and lighting modes.

Glossy White Texture

SteelSeries Sensei RAW Frost Blue features a sleek, glossy white coating that delivers a unique feeling, allowing the user to compete and win in style.

Glide Like the Wind

High Performance PTFE material covers 16% of the mouse bottom to ensure maximum glide. We recommend changing glides regularly as they will eventually be worn down.

Double Braided Cord

Improved durability and tangle-free via its double braided nylon cord.

The DNA of the SteelSeries Sensei is programmed to win. It is one of those rare hardware products forged by love and science, trial and error, passion from professional gamers and a desire to push the envelope. It features a highly sophisticated firmware that allows for multiple adjustments of the sensor functionality, as well as complex macros to customize the mouse to the user's specific desires. With the SteelSeries Engine and illumination present on the design, the Sensei has a new look, both on the outside and on the inside. At the same time, the Sensei features the familiar ambidextrous design, the ability to save different profiles on board, and the LED panel to customize the mouse on the fly. This special edition SteelSeries Sensei was designed alongside award winning professional gaming team, Fnatic.

SteelSeries Sensei Fnatic Edition

The Sensei is the grand-master in the SteelSeries dojo. It is the teacher. The one everyone bows to, the one who knows tricks and secret moves that everyone wants to learn--but so very few can ever hope to master. Featuring a state-of-the-art laser sensor that offers consistent and reliable performance, the SteelSeries Sensei boasts 10.8-megapixel HD image correlation at up to 12,000 frames per second and the ability to handle tracking movements of up to 150 inches per second.

The Sensei was co-designed by one of the world's most accomplished gaming teams, Fnatic. Fnatic is a professional electronic sports team consisting of players from across the globe who all make a living through competing in video game tournaments. The Fnatic team won the ESports Team Of The Year Award in 2006 and 2009. Fnatic is currently supporting a list of highly successful squads in StarCraft 2, League of Legends, Call of Duty, and Counter-Strike to name a few.

Three different zones can be programmed individually using 16.8 million different colors

32 Bit ARM Processor

The processor in SteelSeries Sensei is a 32 bit ARM processor and it is as fast as the original Pentium 75 MHz processor released by Intel in 1994. This reference may sound like overkill, but it's this type of power that allows it to do sophisticated calculations directly on the mouse, without the need for software drivers and without having to rely on the user's computer.

So-designed by one of the world's most accomplished gaming teams, Fnatic

Upload your own bitmap image and personalize your Fnatic Sensei mouse

SteelSeries' industry-leading ExactTech settings, like ExactSens, ExactRate, ExactAim and more, are calculated directly on the mouse providing the user with a mouse movement that is completely free of any interpolation or extrapolation, without any delay or filtering, and without using up memory or resources on the user's computer.

On-Mouse LCD Menu

With the LCD display on the backside of the SteelSeries Sensei, you can customize all settings to fit your specific needs. The LCD menu offers setup of even the most advanced ExactTech settings.

It also allows you to upload your own bitmap picture, offering a great way to personalize your mouse--and help prevent theft at LAN-events, gaming cafes and other public places. Design your own unique picture for the Sensei LCD display, download it to your computer and upload to your Sensei via the SteelSeries Engine software.

Advanced Macros

Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei. The macros can be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing. How you will decide to use this advanced feature is up to you--choose your configurations wisely and adhere to any rules that you may need to abide by during gameplay.

ExactLift: Adjustable Lift Distance

The Sensei gives you the ability to customize the lift distance. This has a number of practical applications, most importantly it allows you to fine-tune the mouse to your preferred mousepad or mousing surface. Not all surfaces are equal. Surfaces are made of many different types of materials and those different materials have different qualities. They can be reflective, rough, smooth...the list goes on. All of these factors will influence the lift distance of a normal mouse; with the Sensei, we put a whole new dimension of control in your hands.

ExactAim: Slow Down And Focus

Headshots anyone? SteelSeries ExactAim will allow you to be more precise. As you slow down your cursor the mouse will decelerate even more allowing you to focus on your target.

ExactAccel: Move Faster

SteelSeries ExactAccel does just the opposite of ExactAim. As you increase the speed of your mouse movement, ExactAccel will accelerate your movements even faster in order for you to move across your game or page faster.

ExactSens: Control The Sensitivity

SteelSeries ExactSens allows you to control how fast your pointer should move by adjusting your CPI in increments of 1 between 1 to 5,700 CPI. This means, the SteelSeries Sensei offers you true hardware based sensitivity settings, freeing you of interpolation from game software. To really get the full benefit from ExactSens you need to deactivate any cursor acceleration and set your sensitivity settings in-game (sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) and on your operating system to default.

Plug, Play, Win

There's no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei. The built-in driver can be adjusted through an LCD menu on the backside of the mouse. Simply plug in the Sensei and play. For the PC gamers who want really advanced customization options, the Sensei is supported by SteelSeries Engine technology.

Беспроводная мышка, работающая без задержек

У Sensei Wireless время отклика тоже составляет 1 мс, и частота опроса в 1000 Гц такая же, как у и его проводного собрата, легендарной модели Sensei. Мышь разработана на основе фирменного высокоскоростного беспроводного чипа с частотой 2,4ГГц, оптимизированного для очень высокой скорости обработки данных, в результате чего время задержек стало невероятно низким.


Поставляемая в комплекте зарядная станция имеет функцию подсветки; она подскажет вам уровень заряда мыши, чтобы не было необходимости гадать, сколько еще будет работать аккумулятор. Когда мышь не используется, достаточно поставить ее на металлическую пластину док-станции, и она быстро зарядится.
