The best mouse I've ever used
on October 4, 2012
I go through computer mice on a fairly regular basis. I don't abuse them, but I use them a lot, and in multiple capacities. From web browsing, to gaming, to image manipulation, to video editing, I do a little of just about everything. As a result, I NEED to have a mouse I can depend on.
After burning through several Razer branded mice over the last few years, I decided to go to a different manufacturer this time around and see what else is out there.
I had been using a Logitech M510 wireless mouse as a stand in after my last mouse died, mere weeks after the warranty was over with. It did the trick, but suffered, as apparently just about all wireless mice do, from drop offs in the signal and a lack of smoothness that one gets with wired mice.
My criteria was that it had to be wired, not molded for right-handers (I'm a lefty), and doesn't require one to mortgage their house to buy it.
I was pointed, via message boards, to the Steel Series Sensei MLG Pro Grade Edition. After doing a bunch of reading, I decided to give it a try.
From the moment I plugged it in, I was in heaven. I went to the website and downloaded the special software for the mouse so that I could fine tune it, although even without said software, it already felt amazing.
The tracking on this mouse is very good - no dropouts and a precision that I haven't experienced before. You can use the mouse software to fine tune everything from the DPI, to how high you can lift the mouse from the surface before it stops tracking. Plenty of extra buttons, including one that lets you double the DPI on the mouse on the fly, makes for a smooth experience whether you are surfing the web, or playing a video game.
Size wise I found it perfect. I have long fingers, so short mice don't work well. With this mouse I can comfortably click any button without a second thought, and experienced no discomfort even after using it for long periods of time doing photo-retouching in The GIMP.
Features like changeable led colors for the wheel, and back, along with a customizable graphic on the bottom are not the reason I got this mouse, but they are "neat".
The mouse might be a little pricey for some, but if you need something that won't give out on you and is very customizable, this could be the mouse for you.
