Steelseries is Razer’s rival when it comes to computer peripherals. Although Razer was the first prominent computer peripherals manufacturer, Steelseries has their own lineup of products that can beat Razer’s offerings.
The gaming mouse niche is already saturated and there are a lot of offerings out there. But today, I want to talk about what is considered to be the best ambidextrous mouse out there, the Steelseries Sensei Raw.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw is a simple mouse and it has an ambidextrous design. It is ergonomic and it can be used no matter how you grip the gaming mouse.
There is a Steelseries Sensei on the market and you’re probably wondering what their major differences are.
Well, the Sensei has a built-in processor which allows you to store profiles into the gaming mouse itself.
This means that you do not have to download their proprietary software in order to cycle through your saved profiles. In other words, you can have this mouse pretty much work right off the bat without downloading additional software.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw, on the other hand, does not have a built-in processor which means that you need Steelseries’ program to tweak the mouse settings.
Anyway, let’s talk about the mouse’s features. The Steelseries Sensei Raw comes with an advanced laser sensor. People are put off with the idea of a gaming mouse using a laser sensor because the performance might suffer if you’re using different surfaces.
But, that is just a notion of the past and you do not have to worry about it when you’re using the Steelseries Sensei Raw.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw even boasts of its 10.9 megapixel HD image correlation which means that the mouse can pinpoint exact instances.
Furthermore, the sensor is capable of reaching 5670 CPI and it boasts of tracking movements of up to 150 inches per second.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw’s mouse buttons can also withstand 30 million clicks, which, if you’re just an average gamer, this mouse will last for a good 2-3 years.
The tactile feedback of the mouse buttons is also satisfying in that it only requires 30 grams of actuation force for the mouse click to register on screen.
I really love the fact that this gaming mouse only require 30 grams of actuation force. I’ve used gaming mice that requires 50 grams of actuation force and although it is okay if you’re gaming for an hour or two, but it is not the same story when you’re gaming for more than 3 hours straight.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw is priced just right because there are some features that were cut off from the Sensei. One is the aforementioned processor and another is the RGB illumination.
The Steelseries Sensei Raw only comes with one color, white. Even though it only has a white LED, it still does a pretty good job of eliminating the gaming mouse. This is perfect for gamers who prefer playing in dark rooms.
All in all, the Steelseries Sensei Raw is a pretty good ambidextrous mouse without a heavy asking price.
