Review of Steelseries Sensei - Page 13

post #121 of 176
I just got the sensei. I've been using Logitech MX500 for the past 9 years. (I still think it's the best mouse on the planet. and it still works perfectly.)
I've tried many different mice but I did not like any of it or got broken within a year.
Sensei is the first mice that feels right and has nice build quality.
Also the Exactaim is a huge + for me since I play FPS mostly.
I'm happy with this mouse so far. well see how long it lasts, though.

HaiiYaa - Can the Sensei be configured to have different colored lighting for two CPI settings? Example: Have the lights display one color for your default CPI. Press the CPI button, and have another color displayed?

Yes it can

Do you think the switch from spawn's optical on soft to sensei on hard a big deal at all? I'm hoping to get a xornet but the issues with the spawn is just killing me atm. Considering this mouse now even though the spawn's got the perfect shape for me.

My Sensei just showed up. So far its pretty decent.

The buttons on the right side are annoying. If those were gone this mouse would be perfect.

You can get used to it but it would be better to switch to another softpad that do good with the sensor, like the artisan hayate or hien

I'm using it with steelseries Qck mini (cheapest) cloth pad without problem.

The qck like most other clothpads will give you a lower perfect control speed and up to 5% acceleration with that sensor. Thats why I recommend hardpads or the artisan mousepads as they will give the mouse the best perfomance tracking wise

Just picked up a Sensei hoping to improve on my wireless Logitech M510.

Overall, no quality complaints. In fact the scroll wheel is the best I've felt. It's tight and damped.
The "metal" finish is certainly unique. It's pleasant to the touch, I don't feel strongly about it either way.
The rubberized side material should be grippier.

Buttons are good, no play whatsoever unlike the G400 I returned. The side buttons are perhaps too easy to click.

The braided cable could be thinner, but perhaps I'm more sensitive to this coming from a wireless.

Software works as advertised, no complaints there.

I must admit the M510's sculpted body feels better under my hand and it's easier to liftoff. The Senei could be taller with a wee bit more scupting, IMHO.
And scroll wheel aside, has better built quality than the already good Sensei.


Well, I'm stuck with the Sensei so I'll try to get used to it, but I think I still prefer the M510...

I saw your post a few days ago. Had a heart attack. After some internal investigation on my own part, I can confirm that your mouse should never have left the factory. And I am confident that won't happen again, someone got beaten up severely for this.

If you drop me your address and phone number I will have a new one shipped out to you and save you trouble of going thru the support/RMA procedure. If anyone else have similar issues, please go to the SteelSeries.com website and return them.
