Today, kicking off CeBIT 2012, SteelSeries, the leading manufacturer of premium-quality, competitive gaming peripherals, introduced the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW]. With best-in-class hardware like Omron switches, a pro-grade laser sensor and a CPI range from 90-5700, the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] is designed to deliver the best in gaming performance. Its ambidextrous, all-grip design also features bright-white LED illumination in 3 zones –which can be configured with multiple levels of pulsation. Powered by the SteelSeries Engine software suite, users are equipped with advanced customization options and the ability to create and store an unlimited amount of profiles.
"When we built the SteelSeries Sensei, we knew that at the core of it, if you took out the on-mouse LCD menu and configuration options, it would be a really solid mouse from the sensor to the shape. The Sensei [RAW] delivers those core performance basics of a gaming grade mouse, like shape and its hardware, to those who don't want, need or care to pay for all the extras," said Kim Rom, SteelSeries CMO. "We also built the Sensei [RAW] with a transparent bottom to drive home the awareness that with this mouse, what's inside is what makes it awesome."
The SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] will be available in 2 different versions, each offering a very distinct feel for the user. For gamers who worry about sweaty palms, the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Rubberized features a rubberized black, hand-sweat resistant coating that allows for an exceptional grip and soft-touch comfort even during the most frantic gaming sessions. The SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Glossy features a glossy black coating that delivers a unique grip and feel. This surface is ideal for players who prefer a smooth exterior that both looks and feels sleek.
The Sensei [RAW] Glossy and Rubberized also both feature:
- XL-size Teflon Feet for a smooth, consistent glide
- 2 m / 6.5 ft anti-tangle black and white braided, nylon cord
The SteelSeries Sensei [RAW], Rubberized and Glossy editions, will be available in the SteelSeries Web Shop and select retailers starting in June with an MSRP of $59.99/ €59.99. For more information and images of the new mice, please visit http://steelseri.es/RAW.
SENSEI VS. SENSEI [RAW]
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.
