SteelSeries Sensei is the original mouse extraordinaire from SteelSeries. It's the worlds most customizable mouse and features its own 32bit ARM processor (which allows double the sensitivity, to 11,400 DCPI), and can be configured through a built-in LCD menu system on the back with support for up to 16.8 million colors.
SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] did away with processor, the LCD menu system and the on-board memory. If you don't travel around the world as a pro gamer, if you don't plug into tournament computers and if you don't need all the colors, the [RAW] will deliver the same world-class performance and same amazing customization options using the SteelSeries Engine. And Sensei [RAW] is available in 2 versions: one with rubberized soft-touch surface, one with smooth glossy surface--pick your favorite feel and start fragging.
Since the release of their first mouse, SteelSeries has been using Japanese inspiration in the naming of them. SteelSeries mice are built for performance and tournament-style play; Ikari means anger, Xai means talent, and the list of product names goes on. The Sensei is the version of the grand-master in the SteelSeries dojo. It is the teacher. The Sensei [RAW] is that master in his pure and focused form. With tournament grade components and focused intent, the Sensei [RAW] is the essence of performance, delivering only what you need to eliminate your challengers.
The SteelSeries [RAW] is the purified form of the original SteelSeries Sensei. It is the essence of performance and embodies everything SteelSeries has learned about mice, everything ever researched, everything ever discovered, everything that makes a mouse great. The DNA of Sensei is programmed to win. These are those rare hardware products forged by love and science, trial and error, passion from professional gamers, and a desire to push the envelope. SteelSeries Sensei mice were born for tournament victory; they are built to help you win.
Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Sensei [RAW]. The macros can not only be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing, but they can span across your peripherals allowing you to have a mouse button assigned to perform keyboard strokes and mouse clicks in the same macro. How you will decide to use this advanced feature is up to you (choose your configurations wisely and adhere to any rules that you may need to abide by during gameplay); the Sensei only presents you with the capabilities for endless possibilities.
SteelSeries is proud to be associated with some of the best players in the world of eSports. SteelSeries maintains strong relationships and has continuous dialogue with teams like SK Gaming, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, Natus Vincere, and others who help in the development and improvement of gaming products.
To ensure maximum performance in all gaming scenarios, SteelSeries enlisted help from world-class StarCraft II, Counter-Strike, DotA, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, WarCraft III, and Doom players. Thanks to them, Sensei [RAW] has the same performance as the original Master--so if you like the Sensei these are the players who helped make it happen.
There’s no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Sensei [RAW]. It is completely capable of operating flawlessly with default settings. SteelSeries Engine enhances the Sensei [RAW] with advanced customization options like CPI settings, programmable buttons, LED intensity, and lighting modes. The Sensei [RAW] is supported by SteelSeries Engine technology, but will work out of the box with any computer or laptop.
The brilliant white illumination is capable of several modes of operation including: solid, slow, medium, and fast pulse. You can also vary the intensity of the illumination between low, medium, and high. For those of you who don’t like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination.
It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them brightnesses, you can quickly switch between profiles and always know which profile is active.
