MEET THE SENSEI

Since the release of our first mouse, we have been using Japanese-inspiration in our naming of them. Our mice are built for performance and tournament-style play; Ikari means anger, Xai means talent, and the list of product names goes on. The Sensei is our version of the grand-master in our Do Jo. 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. It's a fitting name. Master your game. Meet the Sensei.

4 out of 5 eggsworks with windows 8.1 now!

Pros: I owned the sensei and sensei mlg mice. Awesome mice except when windows 8.1 came along. I had the mlg at the time and had to throw it out because it kept pooping out during driver init. They now have a new version of the steelseries 2 engine that works with windows 8.1 (when you go to download it actually says in the the description, "now works with windows 8.1".

Cons: Only that I gave up a mouse that was awesome for it's dcpi.
(11,400 for sensei, 16,000 for mlg).

Other Thoughts: would buy it again now that it works windows 8.1 now./

1 out of 5 eggsLifespan of a mayfly

Pros: Color customization, LED screen (I guess?) customization in Steelseries engine

Cons: Cheaply built for being a $90+ mouse, steelseries engine, short lifespan, the silver finish rubs away rather easily. Steelseries engine (the customization level is no longer a pro when you cant access it because your mouse is incompatible.) Feelings of shame because you paid $90 for this garbage, the time it takes to go to the store to buy (or wait for delivery of) a new mouse

Other Thoughts: When you pay almost $100 for a mouse, you expect it to be a high quality product. Most of what you are paying for here are the superfluous gimmicks built into this mouse. 16.8 mil colors--cool, LCD screen is kind of cool, but it is located on the bottom of the mouse. Who looks at the bottom of their mouse anyway? It looks sleek, but it didn't take me long to start running into problems. It started with the mouse no longer being recognized by the steelseries engine. I kept getting the message to plug in a compatible device. All of my profiles were still loaded onto the mouse so it would still function. shortly after that it began to click itself while I would hover over things, even using the drag selector on blank screens just from a mouse over, So I uninstalled the software and drivers. Once I plugged it back in Microsoft downloaded drivers automatically and it was once again a semi functional two button mouse. So I figured I would re download Steelseries engine, again it did not recognize the mouse as a compatible device so I chose to update the mouse firmware. The update never got beyond 52% before it encountered an error and needed to be canceled. That was the last hit this dead horse would take. I now own a $90 still almost kind of silver paperweight, with a 6 foot tail. You are better off buying a $20-$30 optical mouse with 4 buttons and a wheel. I have owned $5 mice that have put up with the constant mouse abuse that is Diablo 2 that have lasted years longer than this mouse. I have since switched to Razer products and have not looked back.

3 out of 5 eggsNo bad, but over priced.

Pros: Customization of colors, software profiles.

You can set the LED colors on the mouse which I guess is kind of cool. And there is a small LCD display on the bottom where you can put a logo or something.

Gadgety but useless, who's looking at the bottom of their mouse?

Cons: Cheap build for the price.

The body seems fine and nothing has broken off, but the plastic does wear through after a while.

Buttons have held up well but the scroll wheel did not last.

Other Thoughts: I loved the old MS Intellimouse Optical. I went through dozens of them over the years. I usually paid less than $20 for them and they would last 1-1.5 years before the micro switch would wear out and the left button would start double clicking. I was "OK" with this because they were cheap.

I purchased the Sensei because it had a very similar shape to the MS device I was comfortable using, other features really had nothing to do with it.

I purchased it retail for about $120 maybe 3 years ago.

The buttons have held up, but the scroll wheel got glitchy about 2 years after I bought it.

I know I'm cheap, but I can buy a functional mouse for <$20. I'd expect a $100+ mouse to last for a long time. And, well, 2 years if NOT a long time in my book.

While it lasted, it was a very good performer. But it did not live up to the asking price by a long shot in my opinion.

I would recommend it to most people, but I use my mouse 8+ hours a day on average for work and play. So I won't be buying any more Steel Series products based on the performance of this one.

For the record, yes I tried cleaning it with air and even took the cover off and tried cleaning it with no success.

I should have looked at the warranty length. The SS mouse only comes with a 1 year warranty for this price, Too me this says Steel Series is surprised if it makes it 2 years yet they still price it like it should last 5.

3 out of 5 eggsBEWARE WINDOWS 8.1 USERS

Pros: one of the best mouses

Cons: DRIVERS DO NOT WORK IN WINDOWS 8.1. THEY ARE CALLED STEELSERIES ENGINE 2 AND THEY WILL HARD CRASH YOUR COMPUTER, CAUSING YOU TO REMOVE DRIVERS IN SAFE MODE. You will have to use this mouse without driver support, you'll only have the lowest and highest dpi available when you use the dpi switch. If you have 8.1 your only option is the Rival, which is their only mouse that supports steelseries engine 3.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for claw grippers in FPS!!!

Pros: First off let me say that when looking for a mouse the first thing to look for is ergonomics! Regardless of the other features ergonomics is #1 on the list. With that said, the ergonomics on this mouse are very middle of the road as it is an ambidextrous design. The mouse is not very tall, in fact it's pretty low compared to other mice. That's a huge win for users that have small to medium sized hands. If you're a palmer, clawer, or swiper the mouse will feel good. However, it's ideal for claw grip with it's medium size and low profile. The shape is almost identical to the Zowie F K. Button placement is good and the switches for the buttons are great. Wheel is just right. The plastic shiney surface is great, it's not sticky or slick. The sensor is the best I've come across personally. The movement is great and the software to adjust the movement is truly the other half of this mouse. The two killer features of the softwrae are the ExactAccel and ExactAim adjustments. ExactAccel will accelerate the cursor when you increasae the acceleration of the movement. Great for snapping around with a quickness. ExactAim does the opposite, it will slow down the speed of the mouse as you slow down the mouse movement. Great for microadjusting to get that headshot! This allows you to maintain a constant DPI on the settings without needing to change it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great mouse, I also own a Corsair M65 which this mouse is clearly superior to. I also own a Roccat Kone XTD which I absolutely love and also recommend. However, I prefer the Sensei over the Kone, the ExactAccel/ExactAim tilts things in the Sensei's favor.

5 out of 5 eggsVery custom feeling mouse

Pros: -Customization
-High CPI
-Steelseries Engine

Cons: -Price?

Other Thoughts: I have 2 other Steelseries mice. The Diablo III and Kinzu V2. The Sensei shape and feel is very similar to the Kinzu V2. The chrome finish does feel easier to grip through. Feels like this mouse was made for the claw grip. Personally I don't have anything bad to say about the mouse. I love the Steelseries Engine. Easy to use even if you never adjusted any mouse settings before. Really the seller of this mouse is the LEDs and it's just a really good mouse.

2 out of 5 eggsIt was nice

Pros: I really liked it at first. The mouse was easy to customize, pretty responsive, and sharp.

Cons: Then... not even 9 months after buying it, the thing keeps freezing up and is totally unresponsive for long periods of time. I've updated drivers and firmware with no success. Really sucks

Other Thoughts: The bad thing is this mouse freezes up the Steel Series Engine sometimes and stops all my other Steel Series products from working. Disappointing.

4 out of 5 eggsOverpriced, But Solid

Pros: This mouse is comfortable in most hands with its unassuming shape. You can customize everything--even set the mouse to auto-change your sensitivity based on which game you are playing--and take your settings with you when you travel. After over a year of abuse, it has held up. My sensor is still in day-one good condition. The mouse wheel and all mouse buttons are just as responsive as they were when I first bought it. It outlasted three other mice in the same house purchased after it, and has been used for 8+ hours a day over the past year.

The paint has not chipped for me. I have plugged it into multiple operating systems and it has worked without fail for each one. I bought it in the first half of 2012.

Cons: Price, for one thing. I bought this on sale for $60 and I still think that cost was a bit high. $85 (it was $90 when I bought it) is ridiculous for this mouse. It is a tad small, which is great for me because I have small hands, but it might be uncomfortable for a guy with larger hands. The software did not work right away with Windows 8.1 when I updated, so I had to give up my settings temporarily.

The glides on this mouse wear down extremely quickly and have to be replaced frequently.

Over a long period of time of use without a mousepad the mouse will start to leave residue. I've heard this is not uncommon, but it is the first mouse I have ever owned to do it.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am glad I purchased it. The ability to press a button on the top of a mouse for a quick profile change has helped more than a few times when playing a game where my sensitivity was set too high or too low. A Mionix NAOS that was purchased within one month of this is starting to have the scroll-wheel go.

This mouse could have been a bit more ergonomic, and a bit less dirt-attracting. However, I am happy with it. I did not experience any of the sensor problems that other people did. It works great with and without a mousepad on most surfaces (on some, I had to use a mousepad).

I have thrown this thing in a backpack unprotected for LAN events and beaten the snot out of it and it still works just like new, which is exactly what I was hoping for. There are better mice out there for less money, but if you need customization, this should be one of the first ones you look at.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mouse

Pros: -Very comfortable, fits perfectly in my hand. I use a modified claw grip
-Tons of options to customize your mouse
-Responsive buttons. All the buttons have a very noticeable clicking feeling but are not very loud.
-Braided cord. I love this on hardware. This mouse has a cloth braided cover on the cord that reduces tangling and lets the cord slide over the desk instead of getting stuck like some plastic sleeved cords can.
-On board memory means I can plug and play with my custom settings on any computer which is very nice.

Cons: -The LEDs in the mouse can't do white. When you set them to white it has a distinct and very noticeable pink tinge.
-The silver paint on the mouse started flaking around 5 months in to owning the mouse. I don't know if I have super acidic sweat or something but the paint has been flaking off around the steel series logo and at the bottom left side of the mouse where my thumb joint rests.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is an amazing mouse. The cons I listed didn't seem worth taking an egg off. I suppose if you know you want pure white LEDs you can get the RAW version and save yourself some money.

4 out of 5 eggsGood mouse, but feel sucks.

Pros: Nice clicking feel, The mouse profile editor, pretty colors.

Cons: Doesnt feel NEAR as good in my hand as my old mx518 did. The sensei was made for left and right handed person which Has no benefit for a right or left handed only person (which is almost ALL people....). This Sucks.

Other Thoughts: I still recommend it. Its good.
