SteelSeries Sensei [RAW] Laser Gaming Mouse

Fresh out of the box you can now see the rubber coating applied to this Sensei [RAW] as well as getting a good feel for the shape and contours of this mouse.

The left side has a lower section that is concave to accept your hand comfortably with the pair of buttons in easy reach for use. Keep in mind; all buttons aside from the CPI selector are re-programmable.

At the heel of the mouse you can see the gentle curve across the top to allow for a relaxed grip. Taking up the majority of this end of the [RAW] is a dot matrix of the SteelSeries logo that illuminates once the mouse has power.

The right side is an exact mirror image of the left side of the Sensei [RAW]. The buttons here will speed scroll pages for you by default, but the identical shape is what lends to this mouse being marketed for both right and left handed users. Again, these can also be re-programmed.

The front of the mouse is smooth across the front without any odd angles that may leave your fingers hanging over. The right and left click buttons are also reprogrammable and get spaced a bit by the center section of the Sensei [RAW].

In that section of the mouse you have the adjustable CPI button and the LED just in front of it to denote which of the two CPI settings you can change, are active currently. You then have the scroll wheel with a rubber ring for easy grip and segmented movement to be sure you are selecting one weapon at a time.

The bottom portion of the mouse is clear and has the laser sensor right in the middle below the factory sticker. There is one large front foot and two smaller rear feet near the logo that offer you more Teflon to skate on than a typical mouse would offer.

To power and allow the signals to pass from the Sensei [RAW] to the PC you are given two meters of braided cable with a grey accent strand passing through the sheathing.
