Steelseries Sensei Wireless Mouse Opinions?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Im looking for a new mouse and the "Steelseries Sensei Wireless" in particular caught my eye.





I realise normally cordless mice are a big no-no for FPS gamers due to the associated increased delays. However Steelseries specifically claim "Sensei Wireless uses the latest in wireless technology to deliver exactly the same performance of our wired Sensei tournament-grade mouse. We equipped the mouse with the highest polling rate on the market (1000 Hz), delivering a 1ms response time that eliminates wireless lag". See more: http://steelseries.com/products/mice/steelseries-sensei-wireless

What do people here think? Can it be true? Im no pro-gamer, but I think whatever level you generally have more fun the more you kill! So I dont want to be putting myself at any disadvantage. The reason wireless appeals to me is because no matter how hard you try the cord always adds some resistance when moving it around, even with a mouse bungee. With wireless however the movement should be completely linear and free in all directions which would make reflex and drag shots more consistent.

This mouse isnt released until the 28th March, but would be good to get your thoughts on it...

I have a regular sensei and even then I already want to change mice. I've used it for over a year now and I play Counter-Strike quite seriously. The laser sensor is sometimes finicky on cloth pads and the permanents negative acceleration really bothers me.

I would wait for more reviews on this mouse if I were you. I have never tried any newer wireless gaming mice but I personally think wired is the way to go. Then there's always the issue of having batteries wear out over time and the extra weight due to the added battery and internals.

What kind of mouse bungee are you using? I have a $10 ebay one and it's perfect; it makes the mouse feels wireless.

A "tournament-grade laser mouse" is complete, total, and utter BS. I don't care if its wireless, if you want to play a serious tournament, you need a 3090 or a 3310-equipped mouse. Period. There's no arguing that. Those who use the Sensei in competition HAVE to due to sponsor.

wireless means it's for casual gamers of single plagey/rpg/mmo games. If you want to play any fast-peaced online competitive game go wired.

I couldn't imagine a worse idea from Steelseries. The sensor already has issues and now they turn it wireless... Outside of the Rival they really don't seem to listen to people that care about performance at all.

I love the Sensei shape and feel. I just wish they'd move away from the 9500/9800 sensor and put the 3310 in it. It would be one of the best mice on the market.
