Need help choosing my next mouse , DA black died on me , thinking about Steelseries sensei or sensei RAW

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
hi guys , first of all sorry for my english it's not my native language
so my Deathadder black died on me the other day after a litter over 1 year of use so i throw it where it belong , i don't want to buy razer anymore , i'm really really disappointed from them , so right now i'm using my mx518 which after 10 years is still working expect the scroll wheel and i'm looking for a new mouse , my options right now are the original sensei and the sensei raw glossy (the reason why i want to buy steelseries is because they sponsor 2 of my favorite pro teams so i want to show my support and buy their products) but i would like hear more recommended mouses expect steelseries
my grip is kinda mix of fingertip and palm and i use qck mousepad

thanks a lot

I had a steel series Xai and I loved it but it crapped out after ~ 2 years of use (good service, no worries from me) but recently got the Mionix NAOS 8200 and I do recommend it highly.

Just because the pro players use a certain mouse doesn't make it better, they're paid to use them, and some will admit it hurts their game. Steel Series doesn't make a decent mouse sans the Ikari optical.

Not sure where you're getting that, SteelSeries mice are fantastic, their only downfall is that they use laser sensors instead of optical, and even then thats a difference often blown out of proportion on enthusiast forums.

That being said, for how little they cost, I've found you can't go wrong with a CM Storm Xornet or Spawn

Other than that, the usual suspects, SteelSeries Xai if you can find one, Sensei RAW, Zowie AM or FK, or Mionix Naos

I really like the Sensei but after using one I think I would get the RAW rubberized version. A little less cost and I like the surface a lot more.

I just got the zowie fk in and have two sensei mice...don't ask why, I have an addiction. I like the fk a little bit more for me. A little more narrow than the sensei and I like optical a little more than laser but all in all they are both fantastic mice.

so.. normal sensei or sensei raw? (rubberized edition not available:< )
post #8 of 21
Raw of course, the normal sensei has really poor coating.

However I wouldn't buy a sensei again, it's too heavy of a mouse. I think you should look towards a mouse like the fk or spawn. Or even go back to your old mouse, buying a new one.

wow really? i'm reading a lot of negative opinions on the sensei i don't think i should get it , also the spawn looks like the G9x , i have the G9x and i absolutely hate it , i gave it to my sister , what's my other options?
post #10 of 21
I have the Sensei D3 edition, (it's a rubberized raw either way you look at it) and I love this mouse almost have a year into it and YES I would buy it again.
