SteelSeries Sensei has given stanless steel type looking body to the mouse that seem to feature a higher level of grip than you would expect from such a surface.
The shape of the mouse is pretty standard. It is quite long. encouraging more of a palm grip and also very light 105 grams and when in the hand appears to be extremely comfortable. At the back of the mouse is an illuminated SteelSeries logo that has been etched into the surface, this is really smart and the lighting can also be controlled via the SteelSeries Engine software you can choose from 16.8 million colours
The mouse features 8 buttons of which 7 are programmable, although the thumb buttons are duplicated left and right due to the ambidextrous design, so really there are 5 programmable buttons for normal use.The eighth button, at the back of the scroll wheel, is for switching between 2 user definable CPI settings. Both the Scroll wheel and the CPI button are also illuminated and the lighting is user-definable via the SteelSeries Engine software.
The Sensei also features a braided cable approx 1.9m, which is decent enough...although the same cable is found in the steelseries low hand mouse the ikari...the sensei costs about 3 ikari's but cable given in both the mice are the same.
Underneath the mouse 5700 CPI laser sensor can also be doubled up to a whopping 11400 CPI and the mouse also features SteelSeries’ additional technologies ExactLift, ExactAim, ExactAccel and ExactSense see below for more details.
SteelSeries ExactLift gives you the ability to customize the lift distance. This has a number of practical applications, most importantly it allows you to fine-tune the mouse to your preferred mousepad or mousing surface. Not all surfaces are equal. Surfaces are made of many different types of materials and those different materials have different qualities.Put a whole new dimension of control in your hands.
SteelSeries ExactAim will allow you to be more precise.As you slow down your cursor the mouse will decelerate even more allowing you to focus on your target.
SteelSeries ExactAccel does just the opposite as ExactAim. As you increase the speed of your mouse movement, ExactAccel will accelerate your movements even faster in order for you to move across your game or page faster.
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 need to 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.
LCD display! Through this LCD display you can program the settings of the mouse without the need for additional software. You can create and save profiles, customise CPI settings and make alterations to the various Exact Aim, Lift etc. Technologies of the mouse. This makes the Sensei highly portable and allows you to use a fully customised mouse setup on any PC with the need for installing drivers or software, nice!
In addition to this, the display logo shown is also fully customisable, so you can have your own logo imported via a BMP file.
