Since the release of our first mouse, we have been using Japanese-inspiration in our naming of them. Our mice are built for performance and tournament-style play; Ikari means anger, Xai means talent, and the list of product names goes on. The Sensei is our version of the grand-master in our Do Jo. It is the teacher. The Sensei [RAW] is that master in his pure and focused form. With tournament grade components and focused intent, the Sensei [RAW] is the essence of performance delivering only what you need to eliminate your challengers.
SteelSeries Sensei is the original mouse extraordinaire from SteelSeries. It's the worlds most customizable mouse and features its own 32bit ARM processor (which allows double the sensitivity, to 11,400 DCPI), and can be configured through a built-in LCD menu system on the back with support for up to 16.8 million colors.
SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] did away with processor, the LCD menu system and the on-board memory. If you don't travel around the world as a pro gamer, if you don't plug into tournament computers and if you don't need all the colors, the [RAW] will deliver the same world-class performance and same amazing customization options using the SteelSeries Engine. And Sensei [RAW] is available in 2 versions: one with rubberized soft-touch surface, one with smooth glossy surface--pick your favorite feel and start fragging.
Bow to the Master, Again

Winning, It's the Way of the Sensei
The SteelSeries [RAW] is the purified form of the original SteelSeries Sensei. It is the essence of performance and embodies everything SteelSeries has learned about mice, everything ever researched, everything ever discovered, everything that makes a mouse great. The DNA of Sensei is programmed to win. These are those rare hardware products forged by love and science, trial and error, passion from professional gamers, and a desire to push the envelope. SteelSeries Sensei mice were born for tournament victory; they are built to help you win.
Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei [RAW]. The macros can not only be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing, but they can span across your peripherals allowing you to have a mouse button assigned to perform keyboard strokes and mouse clicks in the same macro. 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); the Sensei only presents you with the capabilities for endless possibilities.
Developed with the Best
SteelSeries is proud to be associated with some of the best players in the world of eSports. SteelSeries maintains strong relationships and has continuous dialogue with teams like SK Gaming, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere, and others who help in the development and improvement of gaming products.
To ensure maximum performance in all gaming scenarios, SteelSeries enlisted help from world-class StarCraft II, Counter-Strike, DotA, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, WarCraft III, and Doom players. Thanks to them, Sensei [RAW] has the same performance as the original Master--so if you like the Sensei these are the players who helped make it happen.
Plug, Play, Win
There’s no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei [RAW]. It is completely capable of operating flawlessly with default settings. SteelSeries Engine enhances the Sensei [RAW] with advanced customization options like CPI settings, programmable buttons, LED intensity, and lighting modes. The Sensei [RAW] is supported by SteelSeries Engine technology, but will work out of the box with any computer or laptop.
Light 'Em Up
The brilliant white illumination is capable of several modes of operation including: solid, slow, medium, and fast pulse. You can also vary the intensity of the illumination between low, medium, and high. For those of you who don’t like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination.
It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them brightnesses, you can quickly switch between profiles and always know which profile is active.

I've gone through Razer mice, and found both that the thumb buttons weren't quite in the right place for me, making them difficult to actually use in game, and lately, I have to say their quality/durability has fallen off. First Razer mouse I used, an original copperhead, is actually still functional but very worn and looks it. Last Razer mouse, Orochi, lasted less than 2 months before a main button stopped working.
After that, tried EVGA, just because the price was amazing. I got 2 Torx 3X Laser mice. Same problem with thumb button, needed to somewhat turn mouse to use thumb buttons, making them less than convenient and undependable in game. Also, very quickly, inside of 2 months, the rubber on the mouse wheel loosened, making the wheel close to completely non-functional. Also, for my hand, somewhat small, the whole mouse seemed somewhat long and flat.
I then tried the logitech G300 mouse, but found the mouse a strange shape, very high, with the left and right buttons 'grooved' so low it was impossible to hit those buttons and the middle mouse button/wheel at the same time, which I do for some games. I also could not use the 'thumb' buttons and right mouse button at the same time, as the 'thumb' buttons faced straight up and were designed to be pressed by the same finger that pressed the right mouse button - index finger in my case as I'm left-handed. Again, I use that combination of thumb and right mouse button in some games, so the Logitech mouse was a no-go for games.
Finally I tried this mouse, the SteelSeries Sensei 310 Gaming Mouse. It feels so good, just perfect in my hand. the thumb buttons are in the right place to use w/o twisting the mouse, and I may even be able to use the 2 buttons on the other side. As I am not pressing them accidently, I think I can leave them active and use them, a first for an ambidextrous mouse in my experience. The materials feel good, the switches seem solid so far, and the software is great once you get used to it. It even has a cloud feature, so I can keep the settings the same for the mouse I use /w my laptop, and the one I use /w my desktop.
The only other mouse I'd consider is the second newest Logitech wired/wireless one, G900, (I don't need Lightspeed charging of G903), but the G900 Still costs over $100, more than 2x the cost of the Sensei 310.
Again, for me, so far, 2 months in, this is best ambidextrous/left-handed mouse I've ever used - just great design overall.
The only thing that I have against it is that the first gaming session with this mouse, my hand cramped after an hour or so. I think that over time, I will build up different muscles in my hand and it won't be a problem but the hand fit of the mouse is not as good as my previous razor mouse. The mouse sort of wants to push out of my palm when I rest my hand on it so I have to grip the sides with my thumb and ring/pinky fingers a little tighter than what I used to. I really like the side grips for your fingers though. The pad on both sides has a nice raised texture that gives you a solid hold.
Sort of a mild wish is that the side buttons stuck out a bit more because they are pretty flush with the surface and it makes them a little hard to find with your thumb. I think this is just another learning curve thing that will get better when I get used to the mouse. Being an ambidextrous mouse, there are side buttons on the right side as well but I don't find those as a problem at all since they are so flush with the surface.
