Review of Steelseries Sensei - Page 5

post #41 of 176
DA has surface length of 14.5cm index, 14cm middle.
Xai has surface length of 14cm.

Wish manufacturers would give info like this instead of giving measures that can be wildly different depending on what form the mouse is.

Push level for Xai is ~2.25cm above ground, while DA level is ~3cm, this is the main difference. Your hand will be in different angle when palming atleast. I have no idea if more angle is bad or good, it isn't for me, but I have most likely the smallest hand in this forum, so I can only say that Xai/Kinzu form might be better for smaller hands.

I had a Deathadder for a few days and it felt pretty good in terms of performance but it also seemed slightly big for my tastes. I guess with the way I had to hold it and the length of the mouse, it threw me off.

Im REALLY interested in the Sensei....maybe even the Kana. But the only thing that has me 2nd guessing the Sensei is the measurements comparable to the Deathadder. I wonder if it would be as big an issue since its not an ergonomic design.

The sensei different feel smaller and less bulky and I do have small hands

From my wrist to the tip of my middle finger is 7 1/4 I believe.

Do you think it would fit ok?

I really want to try the Spawn but I hear it has issues.

yes your hands are about the same size as mine so the sensei will fit perfectly.

the spawns flaws will only be an issue for you if you are a low sense gamer

I might just order both.

Is the sensei out yet?

@Kimrom:
Can you confirm that the problems Xai has with P67 boards has been fixed with Sensei? By that I mean the prolonged boot sequence which lasts up to 2 minutes, and it should last around 10 seconds with UEFI. And is the Sensei cable pretty much the same as Xai's? It would be awesome if it's at least a little bit more flexible.

HaiYaa is also welcome answer the second question, and the quality of the scroll wheel, since both of my Xais have a problem with it.

As the cable is braided its not that flexible

The scrollwheel is not like in the xai. It feels more of a higher quality but more smooth

Having issues with the cursor getting lag/freeze/stuck and i believe is be cause of the profile manager jumping between the settings for each application

Motherboard: ASUS Maximus Formula x38
CPU: Intel Q6950@3900
GPU: HD 4870x2 in crossfire (4Gpus) PowerColour
RAM: Dominator 8GB (cant remember the model)
HDD: Ocz V3 128gb SSD, 2x samsung Raid 0
PSU: Thermaltake 1200W
OS: Windows 7 (64 bit)
Yday i got the Sensei mouse, I will not go into gaming with the mouse.
Using the software to configure the profiles,
In Win7, I have a profile called firefox. one called IExplorer
If Firefox is open then click on the desktop, the mouse will lag about 1/5sec then the cursor will jump and continue working
If i have both Firefox and IExporer web pages open then the mouse cursor will lag every time i try to change pages from firefox to explorer as it changes the profiles. Extremely frustrating.
I change the application profile to include the .exe for both browsers under the same profile.
The trigger for the executable file is under top bar called properties

So one profile for both firefoxe and iexplorer.
So iam using one profile this time but with 2 triggres for the exe.Basically iam telling the mouse that regardless what application is running to use the same profile.
Ånow going from any browser to the desktop will also cause lag on the mouse cursor .
Opening Start->Programs mouse cursror will lag. Desktop area to firefox -> mouse cursor lag. Firefox to IExlorer same,
Any suggestions
EDIT
Reseting the mice defaults the settings, ok done
without the "SteelSeries Engine" running there is no auto profile detection.
Running of the default profile that means, with nothing to identify there is no lag issues when changing windows.
With the engine running there is a small peak in CPU utilization like 1%
With the engine running and a profile selected ie firefox just just pressing the Windows start button will cause a delay on the cursor, that gets stuck on screen for an instance before going forward.
Same if i have two windows open
one with firefox and another with IExplorer. Thought the profile does not change there is the delay / lag of the mouse cursor on the active application.

That tell me there something strange happening with the build in mechanism that detects the open application. But i might be wrong

Any suggestions on a pad for this? I want to order one, but I'd like to get a new pad (still using my Steelseries 4D). I was going to buy the 9HD, but out of stock. Then was going to buy a Artisan Hayate, but out of stock.

So I'm kind of lost. HaiiYaa, any suggestions? Anyone else?
