SteelSeries Wireless Laser Mouse
The Sensei Wireless has a high-arched back with a rubberized coating applied to the top section. The top curve is followed by the lower shiny black plastic section, and we find two buttons on the side, right above a nice complex curve that allows the mouse to be lifted without accidentally pressing these buttons.
As we look at the heel of the mouse, we can see how even the curve is from left to right at the top. This is due to the ambidextrous design, so that either hand is just as comfortable as the other. This is also where SteelSeries placed the backlit logo, which is one of the three LED zones.
Since the Sensei Wireless is ambidextrous, the right side of the mouse follows what we saw on the left side to the letter. The arc is the same, the plastic meets the rubberized coating in the same place, and we even have a matching pair of buttons here for a total of four buttons so far.
Staring the Sensei down face to face, we see they have used metal in the center to surround the rubberized scroll wheel, separating the rubberized right and left click buttons. We can also see that the frame surrounds the buttons; they are not the furthest thing forward like in a lot of other designs.
With the main buttons we just saw making a total of six buttons so far, and then adding the scroll up and down, the scroll wheel click, and the CPI button behind the charge LED indicator, we see there are actually ten "buttons" total on the mouse, and via software, all can be changed around.
Under the Sensei we see four smaller feet used to allow this mouse to glide effortlessly on any surface. We also see the sticker at the top, three gold charging points, the eye of the sensor in the middle, and some buttons just off to the right.
Moving in a bit closer, we see that there is actually a button, and a switch. The button allows the connection of the mouse to the base for wireless functionality. The switch with the red showing is used to turn the Sensei off and on. When the switch is moved up, a green dot is visible.
There is another little release at the front edge of the bottom; this is for the USB cable. This is so that once the cord is set into the connection to the right of the release; you have to move it to get the cable out, as it snaps in here into a locked connection.
Here is the two meters' worth of braided black USB 2.0 cable. As we have said previously, this connects to the base for wireless mode, so the base can transfer data to the PC. It is also used to plug directly into the mouse if you wish to charge and game at the same time, or just want to use it wired.
The nice thing about the way this is done, is that in wired mode, as we see the cable is now clipped into the front of the Sensei Wireless, it looks like any other mouse. It has no funny adapters, and nothing protruding; it's just a clean and simple connection that won't get in the way, or fall out accidentally.
