SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Announced

The SteelSeries Sensei Wireless

SteelSeries has introduced a new wireless addition to its gaming mouse lineup, the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless.

The mouse has just a 1ms response time, so input lag should be kept to a minimum while the 16hr battery life should be enough for even the most dedicated of gamers. If you have to keep going, or can't do without the instant feel of a wired mouse, you can also plug the Sensei Wireless directly into your computer.

The laser sensor on this new mouse is even more powerful than the existing SteelSeries Sensei, with a Counts-Per-Inch (CPI) level of 8,200, compared to 5,700 for the tethered version. This should provide even more scope for tailoring the mouse to your needs.

Joining the new sensor are 8 fully configurable buttons and rubberised accents for added grip. There are also three illuminated zones - scroll wheel, SteelSeries logo, pin hole battery indicator - which can be set to any of 16.8million colours.

Included with the mouse is its base station, which is a charging dock, wireless transceiver and battery life indicator all in one. It also has user-controlled illuminated accents.

Given all these features it's no surprise the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless demands a premium price, with an MSRP of £134.99. Its release date is March 2014.

I'm still mad at SteelSeries for discontinuing the Ikari Laser. They should release an improved version of it, and I'd instantly buy me two of them.

Anyways, not a fan at all of wireless input-devices.

I'm extremely happy with my Sensei MLG, don't I'd ever come back to a wireless mouse again. Don't feel like raging with my PC when battery runs out during a FPS playtime. lol

I wouldn't ever:
1) spend that much on a mouse when there are very worthy alternatives for 1/2 the cost
2) use a wireless mouse for gaming

I do however use one for work because it simplifies toting my laptop around and minimizes cables. I looked and looked for a larger wireless mouse that wasn't targeted towards gamers and couldn't find anything that fit my needs. I know the market is small, but I wonder if anyone will ever release a mouse that has good build quality, small dongle, usable for bigger hands, and good battery life without looking like a plastic piece of crap.

Seems like an equally niche market for such a premium mouse though... so maybe there is hope

£135 on a mouse! Madness.

Wireless and wired in one is interesting.
