SteelSeries Sensei Mouse Review

Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

SteelSeries just released a new gaming-grade mouse inspired by the Japanese martial arts called the Sensei (master) that reaches 11,400 dpi of resolution. The Sensei is powered by a 32-bit ARM processor that controls the ExactTech settings for enhanced movement calculation without having to rely on installed software, even on the user’s PC. All this firepower is software adjustable, from button configuration to the choice of 16.8 million colors to personalize the lightning of the mouse. Let’s go over its physical aspects prior to reviewing its performance.

The Sensei has an ambidextrous design with two lateral buttons on each rubberized side. The upper body is made of silver-colored plastic with a prominent curve. This kind of body is best gripped with the whole palm resting over the mouse. On the top there are the illuminated scroll wheel, a status LED and a selection button. At the bottom of the palm area is an illuminated SteelSeries logo. All the lights can be turned off by the software.

There are three Teflon feet underneath the mouse, plus the laser sensor and a tiny LCD screen that can display an image of the user’s choice (more on that later). The user can also select his or her configurations for the Sensei through the LCD screen when not at his or her native PC. The selection can be done by the scroll wheel and dpi button.
