Have to admit that I'm a SteelSeries Sensei Lover, it's basically a giant Microsoft IO 1.1 shape. The Silver Metallic finish doesn't leave any finger prints on it which I thought would be covered with my greasy paws.

Here I was making fun of SteelSeries products like a damn fool until I actually had it in my possession. Now I want to retract all the nastiness and dumb comments ridiculing SS about their products. I know the current Sensei is a laser but it works beautifully on my Artizan Hien pad with no twitching or any unauthorized cursor movement.

Also love their large cable which is so subtle it doesn't prevent the mouse from being placed and moved anywhere on the pad unlike some of Logitech's mice which tend to move back into other positions when released due to their retarded use of ultra STIFF cables, on their G302 and G502 models.
I'm glad you're enjoying it. I think a lot of people around here limit themselves by looking at a mouses spec sheet (or the company it's made by) and write them off as complete trash w/o ever giving them a fair shot. I know some gamers are more sensitive than others to certain aspects of a mouse (accel, prediction, button lag, etc) which can understandably be deal-breakers, but a lot of people would be better off actually trying some of the things they so vehemently bash.

Ranting aside, I'd say the Sensei has the best shape I've ever used. Back when I got my DA'13 I thought to myself "wow, this thing feels like it was molded for my hand" but when I picked up a Sensei RAW it somehow felt more "right". It's so understated but near perfect in its simplicity.

3310/3320 Sensei/Xai and focus on build quality. Easy win for SS.

Like anywhere on the web you'll get those that love the item but you'll get an avalanche of haters wanting to obliterate anyone even contemplating using a Sensei these days. I was sure it would be garbage due to all the negative comments here on OCN, hence my hesitation on ever owning an SS device.

So glad I've decided upon buying it to see what it's really like and am so far impressed. The shape is the absolute winner even the side buttons don't get in the way at all compared to the Avior SK edition. Really like the cable, soft and never gets in the way at all when running the mouse around the pad at any angle. Overall have to use this device for at least 2 to 3 weeks before giving it the final, okay thumb award thinking.gif.

I actually picked up a Frost Blue RAW when it was on sale. Part of the reason I opted for that one is because unlike the other Sensei variants it employs a rubber cable, a quite nice one at that. Plus I actually enjoy glossy coatings (dry hands). But yeah, the shape is far superior than any of the other ambi offerings at the moment imo. It seems they all have weird shapes for no reason or are too small. Maybe the new mice from Asus and EVGA can come close.

Well they all pretty much have that accell, but if you have to pick one I'd sai Sensei RAW. Regular Sensei is not worth the extra €€.

Tbh if the 9500 didn't have accell, this community would be drewling all over the Sensei RAW.

But do both mice , Sensei original and Sensei RAW Frost blue , have the exact same sensor?
I read that the MLG Sensei for example has a slightly different sensor implementation, MLG lacking in performance compared to the original. IIRC the MLG is prone to have more smoothing or be less responsive.

That's sick work from you, awesome job.
I guess the sliiiightly wavey lines in those 2 pictures show that it has accel, I could be wrong though.
Can you upload another one where the m/s is shown?

Assuming 1000Hz, 100 counts at 810cpi is ~3.13m/s, 44 counts at 451cpi is ~2.47m/s

The Sensei [RAW] is a completely different mouse than the standard Sensei. The Cord, weight, and hard vinyl top change the haptic of just about everything. It was my biggest disappointment in the past 2 years in tech.

The Mamba uses a phillips twin-eye sensor which is infamous for being absolutely atrocious.

Having owned both Mamba's, they were bad...which is unfortunate because the Mamba itself was an incredible product...other than the pants-on-head- retarded sensor choice.
