Playing With the Sensei
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

It’s not an exaggeration to say that the Sensei is way ahead of its rivals. Yes, we do consider it unnecessary to offer such a high level of resolution, almost double the precision found in gaming-grade mice available on the shelves. However, the Sensei truly shines through the ExactTech system; it acts like a bionic enhancement to the user’s reflexes, a “digital doping,” so to speak. We tweaked the system several times, and the Sensei really followed our reflexes, advancing the aim further or tightening the precision. We tested the mouse with the new Battlefield 3. We set it with the highest resolution, but what the Sensei gains in speed, it lacks in finer aim control. Working with a 4,000 dpi tier is more than satisfactory for our gaming style.

On the physical side, we found the main left button a little hard to click (we got used to it, though). The body is indicated for big-handed users with a palm style grip; those who prefer a claw style grip will not be comfortable with the Sensei.

Don’t be fooled by the extra two buttons on the pinkie side. They are just there so the mouse can have an ambidextrous design, and it can be switched to a left- or right-handed configuration – the buttons cannot be properly reached by the pinkies, whether the user is left- or right-handed.
