After last week's Rival review, I've got one more SteelSeries mouse to look at. This one follows the traditional Sensei design philosophy, since it actually belongs to the Sensei family. I am, of course, talking about Sensei Wireless, SS' aptly dubbed "master."
Lately, I've seen a lot of mice catered only to a certain type of right-handed user. Fewer and fewer simple and ambidextrous mice are being made. There's Zowie, Razer has one or two I think, and then there's SteelSeries. Sure, the Rival is a palm-grip through and through, but Sensei, Kana and Kinzu still feature a downplayed shape, designed for any and every hand. Now, the flagship in this entire line-up is most assuredly the Sensei Wireless.
Sensei Wireless is another gaming mouse that doesn't require any cables, though it can still be used with one. It features the classic Sensei ambidextrous design, and it also comes with a really cool looking charging base, which is able to show the remaining battery level via LED backlighting. The mouse is also SteeSeries Engine 3 enabled, so it benefits from the most updated software bundle, being packed with many features that we're going to talk about in a minute.
Like most wireless rodents, battery is the one of most important aspects, and here SteelSeries claims the Sensei Wireless is able to last for up to sixteen hours of uninterrupted gaming, and 20 if the Engine is used accordingly. Now, we've reviewed a handful of wireless mice in the past, and it's time to compare SteelSeries' offering to them, see exactly where this rodents stands.
