You need to uninstall the sensei program for onboard profiles to work, otherwise the program would be on and set it to the default one.

I think the Xai tracked better than Sensei personally. They probably do some kind of processing through the built in ARM CPU that makes it feel a little off, which didn't occur on the Xai.

I'm using a Sensei right now that I had stuffed in the closet because I got tired of the G400 shape. After using the G400 for months, the Sensei Avago 9500 sensor feels wildly inaccurate. You're really doing yourself a disservice by not using an optical : |

disclaimer: I use 800 DPI, 6/11 speed, 1000hz with every mouse from g9x to G400 to Sensei.

Imo I like the Kana shape but it only tracks well on 400/800 dpi which is good for me but i need something higher for when im playing mmos that why I had purchased the savu

After I received my Sensei MLG Edition, I've only used hard pads, because of a big decline in max tracking speed on cloth pads. Until I got myself the Puretrak Talent, once again I don't run out of mouse pad. thumb.gif

Hello people of overclock,

so I've already posted on this thread about RMAing my Sensei because of a very irritating mouse wheel problem, send it back 5 times, the 4th times the mouse wheel sound was ok (same sound as the video, the a little less annoying), but the left click was failing, so sadly I had to send it back again, stil have this problem with the 5th they sent to me I had back then :

Someone on this forum supposed it was typical because he got this on multiple SS mouse, anyone can confirm this? Because this inconsistent sound is really irritating, I guess I'll have to deal with it, but man don't if I'll be able to handle it... I repaid the price of the mouse with all the RMA...

Edit: anyway, I won't RMA it again if it's 90% of theise mouse wheel who sucks, and they don't check before sending back a new one and it feel like playing the lottery to get one with an ok sound...

2nd edit: just checked more the sensei I received, the right click feel more resistant, you can feel it while clicking and by the sound too, it really piss me off, I have hard time to handle things when everything is not perfect, I had never a problem with the Logitech mouses I bought for 10 years, except after 2-3 years for some. I got 5 sensei fnatic, and they all got something wrong already since the unboxing...

@r0ach

sensei and xai use firmwares from two unrelated sources as well as different sensor srom versions, so the tracking might be different.

@Kyck

The loud wheel sound is typical for an ALPS wheel encoder.

Ok, thanks for the confirmation.

Edit: as for the right click, I really think it's broke again, I feel something different when I right click even with my headphones without hearing the heavier sound. I don't know how to describe it, it feels like there's a mechanic confirmation whenever I right click somewhere on the right part, like a double click or something.
I guess I can't fix the right click by myself, and I can forever forget to have a working Sensei, it would be a joke to contact the RMA for the 5th time for a brand new mouse again they sended me.

Has anyone else noticed a buzzing sound coming from the mouse? I got the Diablo 3 version, here's the topic I made:

I've been having some positive results with it. I'm not a really good FPS person by any stretch. In fact, I would consider myself pretty terrible. When I zoom in to aim in something like Planetside 2, I generally spaz out and maybe hit once or twice while the other guy just guns me down over and over. With this turned on it helps. I can still spaz out and lose tracking of someone, but just not as much as I did before. It is a noticeable difference.

It might have something to do with the tracking as well. It's the first thing I noticed between this, my old MS mouse, and the RAT7 I tried out. The other two seems to skip when you're looking around, while the Sensei just does it smooth. Can anyone explain what I'm talking about. Like, I do a 90 degree turn really fast in PS2, it is just really smooth on the Sensei and on the RAT7 it just kinda goes there, like it skipped a bunch of frames to do it.

Well, ok just got a new sensei back, and guess what? The left click is already failing. I have a QcK mouse pad with it, I had a G500 before (and still got it) and a FUNC 1030 (yes, one in the the early 00's but sold it and it was really used).
Do you think I should stop bothering and use my G500 and rebuy a func mousepad since they re-opened business even if It won't be as precise as a sensei+QcK? (I've heard other brand with mousewheel, click problems, so I think I should stop bothering trying different mouse)
I ask this, because the G500 doesn't go well with the Qck as it did with the FUNC 1030, and it doesn't seems like Logitech didn't release new non-mmo gaming mouse except the G400.
(I really can feel the left click failing even more when I listen to music with my headset, the click feels so strange, compared to the right click, or all the logitech mouse I had for years)
Thank you for the answer.

Edit: I've just seen FUNC released a mouse, Func MS-3 Gaming Mouse, should I bother to change it from my G500 for those who had tried both? NVM for the func mouse, can't stand the design.

Better question, what's the best mousepad suited for the G500?
