SteelSeries are a company that have a single ambition: To make the highest quality peripherals that cater for needs of the worlds top professional gamers. They started out in their quest by creating some very unique and innovative mouse surfaces and have today evolved into a forerunner of gaming peripherals from headsets to high-end keyboards. SteelSeries however do not take full credit for the empiric rise to gaming fame, they humbly suggest that they simply digest much valued feedback from their huge gaming fraternity and develop products that the gamers wants. Listening to feedback from your key customer base is what makes for a successful company and SteelSeries are without doubt held in very high esteem by all pro gamers thanks to the products that have been designed by gamers, for gamers.

Not only do they take on-board what the gamers say about their product but they also feed back a substantial amount of their profits back into the gaming community to stimulate growth by co-hosting gaming tournaments such as Iron Lady and King of the Hill. It goes without saying that they also sponsor many top gaming teams such as Fnatic, Natus Vincere and SK gaming to name but a few. Thanks to these ventures, SteelSeries get invaluable advice from the very cream of pro gamers which enables them to design peripherals that are not only designed for the very best, but with this in mind, the products are clearly excellent for the for the rest of us.



The product we have on review today is one such item, the SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Gaming Mouse. Like all of SteelSeries’ mice, they are inspired by Japanese such as the Ikari (Anger) and the Xai (talent). As the name suggests, the Sensei is the very best, the ‘teacher’ in the dojo of mice. It’s a very apt name because if you want to be the very best in your art, you will need a master Sensei.

You would be forgiven for assuming the Sensei is an evolution of the popular Xai gaming mouse but apart from the shape and LCD screen hidden beneath the mouse, the two are totally different packages as we shall see.

About the Sensei
The name fits because everything we ever learned about mice, everything we ever researched, everything we ever discovered, everything that makes a mouse great, is exactly what we built the SteelSeries Sensei around. The DNA of Sensei is programmed to win. It is one of those rare hardware products forged by love and science, trial and error, passion from professional gamers and a desire to push the envelope. SteelSeries Sensei was born for tournament victory; it was built to help you win.
