Overall and FV

I’ll be honest, when I got the Sensei Wireless in I was a little worried. I have a whole stack of wired Sensei’s and I have been extremely happy with their comfort and performance over the years. I was worried that there wasn’t room to improve and that a new model might bring its own downsides. Thankfully, I was wrong. The Sensei Wireless is a great mouse. Paired up with the H Wireless I am basically wire free. This means a cleaner desk (when I don’t have 50 other mice sitting on it), and less worries of getting wires tangled and caught. In the past, I have had my mouse cords catch on things on my desk and even the desk itself while I’m in the middle of an important game, this won’t be a worry any longer. Battery life on the Sensei Wireless is great for a gaming mouse as well and the charging dock is a nice touch. Additionally SteelSeries made a good choice with the black rubber finish. It adds to the already good comfort.

My complaints about the Sensei Wireless are really just nitpicks. The LED backlighting is a little washed out for example. I also wish they would toss in a second charging cord for plugging the mouse in directly. I also have to mention the price as a con as well. At just under $160 the Sensei Wireless is out of the price range for a lot of gamers. It isn’t much more expensive than Razer’s wireless gaming mouse (149.99), but when compared to the G700s (99.99) from Logitech you are paying a lot more. Some of that is going towards the charging dock though.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

I would agree the cost is what would keep me from buying this mouse.

I'm a SS fan boy and I think it's a bit over-priced as well. Somewhere between 120 and 130 seems right for me. If you find it near $100 I'd say its a steal. I pre-ordered it pretty much as soon as it was available and it has been a great mouse.
