SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Gaming Mouse Review
Published: 3rd September 2012 | Source: SteelSeries | Price: £45 |
As with all SteelSeries products the packaging is spot on. We live in an age, for better or worse, of instant gratification and if you can put the image front and centre on a box that is instantly recognisable as a SteelSeries one then that's half the battle. It is a simple and clean design that works regardless of the product being sold.
The [RAW] itself definitely subscribes to the 'none more black' school of design. Even the logo on the palm part of the mouse is much less obvious than it appears in our photographs, except when lit of course. The cable is definitely going to last a long time, with an excellent quality braid that somewhat trades softness for ruggedness. It might take a while to straighten it out when you first remove the tie.
From the top it is identical to the original Sensei, colour notwithstanding. Underneath though they have dispensed with the LCD display and replaced the black base with a transparent one. As we never quite grasped the point on a LCD display you can't see, we fully understand the removal for cost saving reasons.
As it's an ambidextrous mouse it is the same on both sides, with the usual back and forward buttons in nicely ergonomic positions.
