SteelSeries Sensei RAW, Rubberized

Bow to the Master. Again

SteelSeries Sensei is our original mouse extraordinaire. It’s the worlds most customizable mouse and it features it’s own 32bit ARM processor (which allows us to double up sensitivity, to 11,400 DCPI), can be configured thru a LCD menu system on the back and has 16,8 million colors.

SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] did away with processor, the LCD menu system and the on-board memory. If you don’t travel around the world as a pro gamer, if you don’t plug into tournament computers and if you don’t need all the colors, this is a much more price conscious option. Same world class performance, same amazing customization options, now you just need to configure the mouse thru SteelSeries Engine instead of doing via the LCD menu system. And Sensei [RAW] is available in 2 versions: one with rubberized soft-touch surface, one with smooth glossy surface - pick your favorite feel and start fragging.

Rubberized Vs. Glossy
Rubberized Vs. Glossy.

Rubberized Vs. Glossy

The SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Rubberized features a rubberized, soft-touch coating that is hand-sweat resistant, which allows for exceptional grip and comfort even during the most frantic gaming sessions.

SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Glossy features a sleek, glossy black coating that delivers a unique feeling, allowing the user to compete and win in style.

Glide like the Wind

Material: High performance UPE material covers 16 % of mouse bottom to ensure maximum glide. We recommend changing glides regularly as they will eventually be worn down.

Light 'Em Up

The brilliant white illumination is capable of several modes of operation including: solid, slow, medium, and fast pulse. You can also vary the intensity of the illumination between low, medium, and high. For those of you who don’t like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination. It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them brightnesses, you can quickly switch between profiles and also ways know which profile is active.

Looking for a mouse for a lefty and the form factor was perfect. I was happy with the price also so pulled the trigger and purchased the Sensei Raw.
Worked great for about 6 months then started developing a scroll wheel jump that became worse and worse to the point of being un-usable. I was forced to RMA which took almost a month to return (only three days to ship from all the way from Ireland to Denmark... then over 8 days to go from the delivery bay to be assigned to a support tech to start the process and another 9 days being shipped back to me??!?... not good!!) and within 4 weeks has started to develop the scroll wheel issue once again.
I not going to waste energy with another RMA as the after sales is not good and 2 sets of registered postage to RMA + initial mouse cost makes this one of the most expensive and wasteful mouse purchases I have made.
I should have researched this brand first as in hindsight there the scroll wheel issue is common enough and if I had read about it first I would have avoided.
Now the search for an alternate lefty mouse has to start all over again... the joy of being a lefty!!

Edition: Rubberised Edition
Just for starters; this is NOT worth the usually £60. I purchased this at £35 when it was on sale for what seemed to be only one day. I've heard this drops price quite often. But even at £35, I'd go as far as to say it's still a bit too high.

As seen in the attached image, here it is along side my broken Corsair M65 it was replacing. This IS a better mouse, in my opinion, but the Corsair was built a lot better. I mention build as I feel this is one of the main let downs of the mouse. Like I said in the title, it feels like any standard mouse. It is light which can be a good thing, especially for FPS games such as CSGO, which I happen to play. The scroll wheel is pretty bad as other reviews have said. The wheel is noisy, slow and only really works when scrolled at the right angle. Can't say its imprecise or anything as I've had no problems with its performance, just doesn't feel £60 worth at all.

Probably the largest selling point for me was the shape. Its amazing! I have medium sized hands and I use both a claw and palm grip. The mouse feels great for both. Also, left handed users can use this perfectly and loose no features or buttons at all as the mouse is mirrored. The 'rubberised' feel is nice enough too. I wouldn't say its 'rubberised' as it just feels like softer plastic to me. Anyway, it provides a great grip and I've used it for extended periods of gaming and I've not had a problem with anything getting sweaty. Also, just to note, any moisture on your hand will show up on the finish so if you drink whist using it, it will get wet and slippery. You can just wipe the moisture off though.

Now to the important bits; the sensor and buttons. First I'll start off with the easiest bit. The left and right click buttons are some of the best I've ever used.

Mouse is clearly a refurb or second hand, it has usage scratches all over the bottom and some aesthetic wear on the top as well. If that was advertised it wasn't obvious, it works though so who cares.

The one main thing I dislike about it is where the side buttons are.

If I want to press the front left side button, I have to either reposition my hand on the mouse or pull the mouse towards me with my hand, which in an FPS game means looking at the floor, all because the buttons don't sit under my thumb. I don't even know how I'm supposed to press the buttons on the right hand side, they're in the same place as they are on the left side, except my fingers don't really bend that way without some concentration, which again in an FPS game is gonna get me killed. The final problem with the buttons is that they are too easy to press by accident. I pick the mouse up a lot when I'm playing as I use low sensitivity, and I've found within seconds of using the mouse I'm accidentally pressing buttons, which means I can't actually use these buttons for anything, so they might as well not be there.

The other thing I'm surprised by is the size. I suspect this gripe might just need some getting used to. I have big hands, but I hate having a mouse that doesn't fit in my hand. I thought this mouse was one of the smaller gaming mice but that is not really true. Also, ergonomically speaking, it doesn't actually fit well in my hand either, it feels like my fourth and fifth knuckle need to be lower down, but they butt up against the back of the mouse. I've added a comparison with the mouse I use for work and play currently, and do note I've never used a huge mouse like this before.

All in all, not a dig, but if you're looking for a simplistic gaming mouse, this is simple, but it's not different. I'd much prefer it to be smaller and lighter, as it stands it's a big bulky gaming mouse with less buttons than other big bulky gaming mice.

Edition: Rubberised Edition
After owning two Ikari Lasers (one had to be replaced after it started double clicking inadvertently) both of which were rubberized and a brief interlude on the Sensei glossy edition (that just didn’t feel right) I recently purchased the Sensei Raw rubberized edition and I am not looking back (the Ikari has been relegated to an office mouse).

The mouse is very ergonomic, comfortable and precise. I play a variety of games ranging from FPS to strategy to RPGs, so it’s great to a have variable CPI that can be changed between a few favorite settings with the click of a (mouse) button, though I usually leave it at a comfortable 3200 CPI for most games.

The mouse feels very high quality and durable (so far it has survived a few months of heavy use, not to say that is guaranteed by any means). I prefer to have most of the hotkeys in games on the keyboard and really only use the mouse for a 2-3 key functions, for this purpose the Sensei works admirably (not to be compared with one of those WoW mice with 20 programmable keys).

One issue I encountered was with the SteelSeries Engine software, it actually caused some major issues with an OS upgrade from Windows 8 to 8.1 (it has been resolved in the meantime) - was quite surprised by this as it was the last place I thought to look for the source of the problem…
