I've had issues with both mice you're looking at. The First Roccat Kone XTD I received wouldn't work with my PC at all, but worked fine on my laptop. After two returns I finally got one that worked with my PC. The Same situation with the Sensei. I have a Fnatic Sensei that works when it wants to, and a vanilla sensei that works pretty damn well.

Out of the two, the Sensei is actually my favorite mouse shape ever. The Kone XTD is just too damn big for my tastes.

Actually, I'd stay away from laser mice IF you are an FPS player. If you are NOT an FPS player, the XTD is great stuff. I think the Sensei was also my favorite mouse shape I ever had, but the sensor is way off for first person shooters. You could go with a DA 2013 for a nearly seamless transition in shape from the Mamba.

The Sensei has some of the best clicks in the game. That's one of my most important factors when I play DOTA2/LoL. I've never been fond of the build quality of the Kone XTD, but that may just be me.

Hmm I wonder why the Kone XTD is so expensive here in Australia. It's one of the most expensive mice here. I figured that the build quality had to be pretty good for the price point they are selling it at. On average, it's about $119 here, but mice like the Mionix NAOS/Avior are around $79.

That sounds like a more decent price inline with what it should be. Just for some weird reason they have it priced quite high here in Australia. I wouldn't go anywhere near it at $119.
