From the Manufacturer
SteelSeries Sensei [Raw] Mouse Frost Blue Edition
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. The SteelSeries [RAW] Frost Blue is the essence of performance and embodies everything we ever learned about mice.
Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei RAW Frost Blue. The macros can not only be layered, 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.
Frost Blue Illumination
The frosty blue 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 also ways know which profile is active.
Plug, Play, Win
There’s no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei [RAW] Frost Blue. It is completely capable of operating flawlessly with default settings. However, to unlock the potential of your mouse, download the SteelSeries Engine software. The software provides you with the ability to customize CPI settings, LED intensity, programmable buttons and lighting modes.
Glossy White Texture
SteelSeries Sensei RAW Frost Blue features a sleek, glossy white coating that delivers a unique feeling, allowing the user to compete and win in style.
Glide Like the Wind
High Performance PTFE material covers 16% of the mouse bottom to ensure maximum glide. We recommend changing glides regularly as they will eventually be worn down.
Double Braided Cord
Improved durability and tangle-free via its double braided nylon cord.

Being a south paw, I know how hard it is to get a good mouse that feels right for gaming and for every day use (I work from home doing video editing). This went well beyond my expectations. The only small gripe I have is the weight, but that is simply a personal preference on my part where I prefer a heavier mouse. The Sensei is pretty light, and I've always hated when a mouse is so light that the cord can move the mouse on its own if it drops behind your desk, etc. This is a VERY minor gripe though and once you have the cord positioned, it is not an issue.
The color is also a fantastic feature that also really went above and beyond what I was hoping for. I also own a Logitech G510 Keyboard that allows you to change the keys to any color and set profiles, the colors on the Sensei must be at least twice as bright as the G510, but either way it is pretty cool being able to set matching color profiles for your mouse and keyboard. The steel finish (not sure if that is really steel) compliments any color scheme you choose very well. It is true that the finish does seem to make your hand perspire more than usual, but the mouse itself stays noticeably cleaner than my Death adder, and it is just so damn cool looking...I'm staring at it right now!
I paid $69.38 shipped with my prime account and I think it was worth every cent, but I notice it has already gone up a few bucks. Hopefully that is just a stock issue and it will come down but if it seems to keep going up I would recommend getting one before the price gets unreasonable. I had a left handed Death Adder in the "Spares" list on my Amazon Wishlist and have recently deleted it and replaced it with the Sensei, eventually I will buy a 2nd just in case they stop making this incredible mouse.
I bought this mouse for gaming to use with my new Mac. I had previously been using a Razer which was finally dying. I spoke to several friends who had bought Razers recently and reported that the quality had gone down. I decided to look at other manufacturers and am very glad that I did!
The Sensei has a great rubberized feel, its actually very soft. The sensitivity is very easily adjusted, it responds very well. There are two buttons on each side that are out of the way, you don't accidentally hit them like other brands. The wheel is somewhat slow, but it is not a deal breaker for me. I have read that you can change the color of the LEDs, but I am fine with the standard white.
I assume because of all the electronics inside, this mouse is relatively heavy. I like a heavy mouse, but you should be aware of this.
I'm not a big fan of ambidextrous mice; I wouldn't normally buy one. This mouse feels very good, but you need to be aware of your gripping style. If you use two fingers on the top of the mouse, such that your pointer finger is on the left button and your middle finger is on the right, your ring finger will probably be in a bad place, and you will accidentally hit the side buttons. If you hold the mouse with three fingers across the top, dedicating the middle to the scroll wheel and the ring to the right mouse button, you will not have this problem. I wasn't aware of the side button issue until I read other reviews, and deduced that that was how they were holding the mouse.
tl;dr: If you don't use your ring finger on the right mouse button, you're gonna have a bad time.
- High Resolution
The "CPI" settings allow for some pretty intense tracking resolution. In real world use, I keep this setting at less than 2000. The button on the top of the mouse lets you toggle, and you can set a color for each state in the current profile that the above it will show.
- Build Quality
Some reviewers complained of switch build quality. No issues yet, it has been extremely reliable for me. I typically play Counter-Strike and World of Warcraft. I do not play Diablo III or League of Legends, where players typically click constantly and rapidly, so it remains to be seen if the switches will fail.
Having so many color choices is very cool, and you can light the scrollwheel, CPI indicator, and logo separately from each other. It's worth noting that the LEDs blink briefly when you press the CPI toggle button, as if the CPU in the mouse has reset in some way.
I love this mouse. It has just enough buttons and the software works well for making macros. The on-board computer is fun to play with and having your own logo on the bottom screen is neat. Depending on your grip you may have serious trouble using this mouse. Do not buy this mouse if you use your middle finger on the right button and let the ring finger rest on the side of your mouse.
