A good, thorough review, Skylit. thumb.gif

I agree with everything you said that I was able to test/use/observe myself when I owned a SS Sensei myself.
If the mouse was a tad lighter, had zero acceleration, and perhaps a few mm smaller [strictly an opinion], it would have been the perfect mouse for me.
A few bucks cheaper most certainly wouldn't have hurt, either.

Unfortunately my Sensei died after about 5 minutes of use and I was forced to return it.
Depending on how the Zowie AM and SS Kana perform I may come back and buy this mouse if it goes on sale in the near future. smile.gif

A majority of my cloth pads have a fairly high malfunction rate with the Sensei. The Kai.G3 actually worked decently well with early 9500 mice.

@ Pendulum Thanks.

Maybe now more people will believe me that my Xai works finde on cloth. biggrin.gif

Haven't tested my Sensei yet, I only unpacked it but mine shows some big difference between the 2 main buttons.

Very good review. smile.gif

The Sensei tips the scales at 102g. While I would normally find this above my personal comfort spot, the mouse itself feels fairly good for it's weight which ultimately surprised me. Nothing more I can really say.
You really can't elaborate on this? Maybe compared to the Xai? guess you dont have it, but maybe from memory?


Bullveyr what do you say about its feel compared to the Xai?

Haven't even plugged it in yet, so I can't really say more about it.
