General + -
The Steelseries Sensei Wireless is a pleasant surprise. The device is comfortable, with some really interesting features and an expected high build quality. The rubber surface provides a good grip for long gaming sessions. Overall, the sensor performs well and the software is practical and easy to use. In addition, even the battery life is a very good surprise since the duration reaches 20 hours. This model is also suitable for left and right-handers.   - Design
- Build quality
Performance / Ergonomics   + -
As usual, we used the gaming mouse in both 2D and 3D environments for our tests. After a few days of use with standard office applications we can say that, despite being a gaming mouse, Steelseries' new product behaves very well in those scenarios as well, mostly thanks to its many levels of DPI and numerous options that you can change within the software. Also, the gaming experience is very good, and we have used the Sensei Wireless with both RTS and FPS games without any problem. Although it is a wireless mouse with a battery inside, Sensei Wireless is definitely lightweight and quite similar to wired models. Ergonomically, the Sensei Wireless is very comfortable from the first contact, thanks to the soft touch cover on the top. It is also worth to mention that this model is also suitable for left-handers.
Regarding the connectivity we have nothing to report, the range is great and the 2.5 GHz wireless band allows clean perfomance without any limitation. In our test the battery life reached 20 hours while some energy savings on the mouse, like for example the backlight, were turned on. Overall, we believe that the product is able to cover completly a daily usage. The charging time is about 3.5 hours.
  - Comfort - Battery life  
Software   + -
The software, available on the official website, it is well made and easy to use. The program is complete, intuitive and easy to use. There are even some interesting options for the backlight, like the "LED mode" which can work in three differents ways. The software is compatible with most operating systems including Mac OS X and the latest Windows 8.1.   - Easy to use  
Recommendation / Price   + -
With the Sensei Wireless, SteelSeries is offering an absolute high-end product and it appears that the company is well aware of the if we take a closer look at the price. On Geizhals the Sensei Wireless is listed fo 140 Euro, which is really a lot. Should you be looking for a wireless gaming mouse that is very close to perfection and should the price be of no concern for you, then we can definitely recommend this great product.   - Price
The Sensei Wireless from Steelseries receives very good 4.5 out of 5 stars.
