From the Manufacturer
Bow to the Master
The SteelSeries Sensei has been reviewed, celebrated and crowned the world's most customizable mouse for gamers. Choose from 16.8 million color options in 3 separate illumination zones--on the logo, wheel and CPI Indicator. With second-to-none accuracy during movements, the Sensei offers precision down to the level of a single pixel. Its 32 bit ARM processor enables advanced on-mouse calculations which allows a completely personalized setup and additional functionality for all 7 buttons. The comfortable shape with the slick non-slip metal coating and the ergonomic button placements allow users to be faster, more accurate and play longer.
With the LCD display on the backside of the SteelSeries Sensei, you can customize all settings to fit your specific needs. The LCD menu offers setup of even the most advanced ExactTech settings described on this page.
Make It Your Own
SteelSeries Sensei allows you to upload your own bitmap picture, offering a great way to personalize your mouse--and help prevent theft at LAN events, gaming cafes, and other public places.
Featuring a state of the art laser sensor that offers a consistent and reliable performance, the SteelSeries Sensei boasts 10.8-megapixel HD image correlation at up to 12,000 frames per second and the ability to handle tracking movements of up to 150 inches per second.
Double Your Speed
SteelSeries Sensei can be fast, like really light-speed fast, if you need that kind of speed. Because SteelSeries use a 32 bit ARM processor in the mouse, it can double (x2) your mouse sensitivity. Go from a default CPI range of 1 to 5,700 CPI, to a doubled CPI range: 5701 to 11,400 CPI. This feature is particularly useful for people using multiple monitor and similar environments.
Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei. The macros can be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing. How you will decide to use this advanced feature is up to you--choose your configurations wisely and adhere to any rules that you may need to abide by during gameplay--but the Sensei presents you with endless possibilities.
FreeMove implements path correction, which makes the mouse predict, correct, and make your movement straight. With the SteelSeries Sensei, you can adjust the amount of path correction or completely disable it for 100% control of your movement.
SteelSeries ExactSens allows you to control how fast your pointer should move by adjusting your CPI in increments of 1 between 1 to 5,700 CPI. This means the SteelSeries Sensei offers you true hardware-based sensitivity settings, freeing you of interpolation from game software. To really get the full benefit from ExactSens, you should deactivate any cursor acceleration and set your sensitivity settings in-game (sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) and on your operating system to default.
Light 'Em Up
Three different zones on the Sensei (the wheel, the CPI indicator, and the back) can be programmed individually using 16.8 million different colors. It's another way for you to personalize your mouse. It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them different colors, you can quickly switch between profiles and also ways know which profile is active. For those of you who don't like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination.
There's no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei. The built-in driver can be adjusted through an LCD menu on the backside of the mouse. Simply plug in the Sensei and play. For the PC gamers who want really advanced customization options, the Sensei is supported by SteelSeries Engine technology (included).
Braided Cord for Durability
The 6.5-foot (2-meter) mouse cable is an anti-tangle braided cord for enhanced durability. The gold-plated L plug resists corrosion and ensures no loss in signal transfer, so every movement remains precise.
