Review of Steelseries Sensei - Page 18

post #171 of 176
I am not sure if this is the right place to put it, but I've come across an issue with the regular sensei that I don't with other mice. I'm a big SC2 player and this is the problem that I seem to be running into. I'm hoping someone can help me. I thought maybe reducing my polling rate, but I'm not sure it will make a different.

Problem: When I box out units with my left button (holding it down) then releasing it and quickly clicking my right button it's as if I do it too fast and it does not register. I don't know how many times I'll click my right button after a quick box out and nothing happens. I have to repeatedly click the mouse button before it finally works. I have 2 different sensei's (brand new) and they both do it. However, if i use other mouse's I don't have that problem.

I'm wondering if maybe it has something to do with the polling rate. If i reduce my poll rate to 500hz (2ms) then maybe it will give it enough time to register? Though that makes me wonder why I don't have the problem with other mice. Maybe it's input lag?

Wondering if someone can point me in the right direction?

The Sensei is cheaper than the Sensei Raw right now. Should I just get the Sensei? Isn't it the same but with more features?

Raw is lighter.

I would prefer RAW even if it was more expensive:

* I don't need all the flashy options and LED screen.
* It's lighter (Biggest improvement for me, 90 gram instead of 100+ gram)
* I can choose a glossy. (The "metal" coating on regular feels... meh, cheap?)

None. 450 is a native CPI step as well (it's a multiple of 90). In my experience the acceleration in this sensor is exactly the same for all of the CPI steps as is any perceived input latency, of which I can't feel any. I actually use 450 and 900 right now for a base sensitivity (450 CPI) of 60cm/360 in BF4 and it works great for me. I just am starting to get tired of the acceleration and as a result a Rival is on its way to me. After owning the Sensei for a while the acceleration can get annoying if you use cloth. I had less of a complaint using it on a hard mat. The accel was more consistent there but you still have to get used to it, and even then I would still overshoot on extremely fast 3+ m/s flickshots. Just my 2 cents on this mouse.
