What customers say about "Key Specs"
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Laser Gaming Mouse
  • Sensor is accurate, like the weight of the mouse as well. Beautiful aesthetics on desk as the lighting is extremely bright.
  • Excellent response times. Feels easily as good as my Logitech G700s in terms of latency, - perhaps even a tad better... It can't be overstated how well this mouse responds wirelessly.
  • Very precise responsive mouse. I don't think you will find any mouse that is this responsive to small movements.
  • The last thing that irks me is the fact that it uses a laser sensor. This means there is no way to completely disable mouse acceleration, as it is inherent in the sensor itself.
  • The scroll wheel doesn't click left or right, which in this day and age of gaming mice seems like an oversight.
  • The DPI button on the top is a pain to press, so you'll need to contort your index finger to get to it when you need to.
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • Buttons feel solid, ambidextrous without sacrificing comfort in either hand, tracking is amazing.
  • Ambidextrous buttons and it's fully modular, whether you're right handed/left-handed
  • Awesome sensor, wicked response time and cable free!
  • It has the best sensor currently made for mice, and an entirely new and excellent switch design for the left and right mouse button.
  • I'm a hybrid grip style between claw and palm. The buttons on the left seemed too far forward for me particularly but this is purely based on my hand alone, not yours.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Laser Gaming Mouse
  • Yeah its pretty legit , coming from the logitech g700s i was worried it would be too small or be uncomfortable but it is great and a nice size
  • Like the Simple feel. smooth and matched my hands perfectly. rechargeable!! I game and productivity, photoshop etc. great mouse on a cool cradle. I would recommend it because it feels right in my med size hand and firm detents on the roller. Loooove it
  • Perfect mouse size makes it easily usable by both small and large hand types.
  • Not very portable. You have to use the dock as the wireless receiver, so if you need to take your mouse somewhere and want to be wireless, the dock has to come, too. Or at the very least the cable it came with so you can use the mouse wired.
  • Paper weight it is!... the mouse itself feels 'plasticy' and is NO-WHERE near as responsive/accurate as my old moose (corsair m65)...
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • The ambidextrous shape and feel of the mouse is perfect for my hands. Although the back end comes up a little further than I like, doesn't take long to get adjusted to. Battery lasts me a good bit for as much as I game.
  • Surprisingly lightweight, with great static-moving friction differential that's even better than advertised with a quality gaming mouse mat.
  • Very light weight for a wireless mouse. (about 107g)
  • Not really a con, but the mouse feels slimmer and longer than some other mouse, like even the G502. need sometime to get used to it.
  • I never got used to the "feel" of this mouse, It never disappears in your hand. It is a heavy mouse, too, so you know it is there.
  • While the technical specs. have be impressive, the ergonomics of this device is bottom of the barrel. Caveat emptor if you have larger hands.

What customers say about "Connection"
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Laser Gaming Mouse
  • Simple as anything (anything simple!) to set up. Plug the included (braided) micro USB cable into mouse (for wired), or dock (for wireless) usage.
  • There is a Micro USB connector that connects either to the base, or to the mouse, allowing you to transition from wireless or wired. This also allows you to charge the mouse while using it. That's all great, and I love the idea, but the size of the port is proprietary.
  • Out of the box. I was able to pair it with the docking station connected to my computer. It was fully charged by the manufacturer so I was able to use it right away!
  • The charging dock is wonderful, especially with the RGB ring that can be used to indicate the battery charge of the mouse, but it is very finicky to begin charging the mouse when you set it down.
  • That's all great, and I love the idea, but the size of the port is proprietary. This means that all those USB Micro cables you have lying around won't fit.
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • Sturdy cable and connector, looks like it'll be quite durable
  • Wireless is on par if not better than the wire connection.( I prefer wireless over wired in games and productivity 9 times out of 10)
  • Connection and software setup is pretty simple-at least coming from the MX 700s (which is detected and used by the software as well).
  • It operates wirelessly with a very fast polling rate and has tested out again and again to have virtually zero lag regardless of the environment.
  • Even wireless this mouse is said to have less latency than wired competitors

What customers say about "Features"
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Laser Gaming Mouse
  • The dock is a very solid affair, by far the nicest part of the package.
  • Software is simple to configure, on an application-basis or just a system-wide configuration.
  • While the light-show from the mouse and dock is pretty cool, they can both be disabled *mostly* completely (I can't seem to disable the light in the scroll wheel, which pulses).
  • The mouse works like a charm! Its super solid, feels good in the hand and is very responsive for what I am doing. I do a lot of 3D work so I was able to customize some of the buttons as hot keys for the software I'm using. Super handy!
  • Love the mouse, hate the software, after I added the new keyboard into the mix, the SteelSeries software refuses to open, so I am stuck with the colors I chose.
Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Professional Grade Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse
  • The RGB is actually useful, as I currently use it to display different colours for each profile. Blue for General / Browsing, Green for Production, Red for Gaming
  • Amazing DPI Light and Logo RGB effects
  • Unlike other mice that have sensativity adjustments on the mouse these are hard to accidentally hit
  • Awesome battery life but can still be used while plugged in and charging.
  • Battery life is a blatant lie on the box. If you disable the onboard lighting the mouse onboard lights turn on and stay on during sleep/standby or off situations running the battery down uselessly.
  • Logitech Gaming Software is bloated, heavy, and can even cause Internet connectivity issues (!!) with more fragile LAN connections in Windows Vista/7 setups, which has been a known issue for years. Thankfully, not necessary for this mouse to work a full performance.
