SteelSeries Sensei

SteelSeries SenseiSteelSeries Sensei – SteelSeries announced a new sexy and stylish gaming mouse that made me (and the other gamers) drool when I saw the product’s press release, screenshots, and promotional video. SteelSeries Sensei is the latest gaming mouse from SteelSeries (after SteelSeries Xai and SteelSeries Ikari) named after the Japanese word “Sensei” meaning “Master” or “Teacher” – Master your game! (Ikari means anger, Xai means talent).

The SteelSeries Sensei has a 32-bit ARM processor that allows advanced SteelSeries ExactTech (ExactSens, ExactRate, ExactAim and more) calculations to be done directly on the mouse – so no more delay by having to rely on the driver and your computer. SteelSeries Sensei also has an ambidextrous design (and looks a bit similar to the Xai) with metal, non-slip grip coating, and this is the cool part: 3 customizable illumination area with 16.8 million color options! Now this is probably the first time SteelSeries has ever done this to their product range as they always go for a “non-bling-bling” gaming peripheral. Thankfully, they listen to hardcore gamers and geeks like me who actually love to have some bling-blings on their gaming arsenal! :D

According to Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO, the SteelSeries Sensei was the result of thousands of hours of research and testing with competitive hardcore gamers. This is definitely a great assurance that the product will be comfortable, accurate, and better for gaming.

They have also increased the CPI (or DPI – though SteelSeries always says CPI is the more correct term) to 5,700 CPI and an “overclocked” Double CPI all the way up to 11,400 DCPI for those with multiple monitors! It also comes with 8 buttons on the mouse, gold-plated USB connector, and double-braided nylon cord.

I’ve never used a mouse with a metal coating before so I’m really excited to give the SteelSeries Sensei a try. A sample is being prepared to be sent across to be reviewed at Craving Tech, of course :) So stay tuned for the review!
