Default SteelSeries' Sensei Gaming Mouse Packs a Real Punch

"Feature-packed" is a term we often use to describe products that offer a lot of features and lack nothing, but there may be no product more deserving of that description than SteelSeries' Sensei 'pro-grade' gaming mouse. It's identical in design to the award-winning Xai, but has a much greater focus on the pro-gamer, making sure to deliver both the imperative features as well as a few extras for good measure.

Here's a couple of videos that SteelSeries launched with this mouse:

Reading SteelSeries commenting on their own mouse makes me believe the world isn't so lost after all. There's still decency in highly competitive markets.

Thanks for the review rob. I wouldn't trade my Logitech Performance MX. But then and again I'm not exactly a gamer I gather the huge CPI could also be useful for non gamers though since 3 monitors aren't nothing unheard of among programmers and artists.

Don't you mean 16.8 million colors to choose from? (says in the second vid)

Awesome looking mouse...I like the feel of a regular mouse..not the freakishly mutated RAT mice (*cough*). haha. This I may look into getting.

How was it referenced? Like, how many mickeys would a mouse like this be?

Oh, an actual review will come! Since I am in such dire need of a new mouse, I am going to take this one on and see if I can overclock the ARM CPU. Alright not really. I've just heard such great things about the Xai, that this one seems perfect.

Doh. I had "million" in there originally... no idea how these things happen. It'd be a bit off if there were a total of 16.8 colors to choose from...

I believe it's the same as what you are calling "counts per inch"... as in 5001 mickeys.
