Whilst this may not be a super ultra light for me this will always be the perfect mouse. I had the MLG Sensei which was the best for me but unfortunately after years of use it died and I've been on the hung for a replacement ever since. Till now. The shape, weight and the fact it has ambi button both sides makes this the perfect mouse for me. The new surface material they've used is also great. Not super finger print magnet but works well for grip. Sensor in this again is top notch and tracks perfectly. Also Steelseries engine is great and lightweight another great thing is once the mouse is set up you don't need the software again. The only knock against it is the wire. My MLG Sensei had a great braided cable on it. Unfortunately this has a bad rubber one. But I love the mouse so much I bought another and paracorded both!
I've been through 2 mouses for an iMac in my living room. The iMac mouse is way too small and flat, so that just wasn't an option for me. I hastily bought a cheap mouse here on Amazon, but it arrived and I realized it was a 'laptop mouse' - mini size. This was not good for my large hands so I ordered another which was bigger and better but the contours completely dictated the hand position with no room for movement, which was quite uncomfortable after a while.
Having owned a Sensei Limited Edition Frost Blue for some time now for my iMac in the office, I knew it was a the best solution I could bank on. The mouse is a decent size, it isn't laden with contours and it functions well and looks aesthetically pleasing on the desk - particularly with it's blue lights on the rear and scroll wheel.
The Sensei Ten, is basically the same mouse with the exception of the RGB lights on the rear and scroll wheel giving a range of more diverse colours and colour options. The scroll wheel differs too, being much easier to move on the Ten. Lastly, the texture is matte plastic that feels a little like rubber on the Ten. Obviously they are different colours too (White ad gray vs Black).
By default the button below the scroll wheel changes the resolution that the mouse works at. I keep it on the second fastest. I have my RGB lights set to full spectrum at the moment. The Steelseries Engine software allows you to change the colour transition by placing colours and adjusting them on a gradient strip (similar to Photoshop or Illustrator). There's also several options as to how the colours appear i.e blending into one another, or changing with a quick interlude of black (off). Within the software you can also program each button, from basic functions to more complex macros. I have no use for the buttons on the left hand side other than for back and forwards in the browser, which I think is default.
I paid £42.99 for this mouse and it's allegedly usually £69.99 (the price I paid for my Sensei Frost Blue). After paying that for the Frost Blue, I was quite surprised since I don't feel like it's worth that kind of money. I understand that gamers relish in the fact that the settings are store in a chip in the actual mouse itself, as opposed to the software, allowing the mouse to be taken elsewhere retaining it's settings, but I don't feel as if the quality is there. Both mouses are very light and plasticy. The scroll wheel (particularly on the Ten), feels too loose and a bit tacky. The mouses don't really reflect the cost.
Having paid £42.99 for the Ten, I thought this was a bit more realistic, though I'd perhaps expect a little bit less. I appreciate that some people like light mouses, but personally. I prefer them reasonably heavy. Heavy doesn't necessarily mean quality, but it does give a better feel in my opinion. The best quaily mouse I ever owned was a cordless Logitech MX1000 which came complete with a weight pallette and individual button weights which slotted in the bottom. I haven't since came across a mouse of this quality since and I think my expectations are always a little high because of this mouse.
Nonetheless, the Ten functions well, though I'm using it on a 2009 iMac (in comparison to a 2015 iMac on which I use the Frost Blue), so performance lacks because of this. my hand is comfortable as I hold it and I'm not being dictated to as to how I should hold my hand by contours. The mouse is sleek and flows in a basic form - suitable for right and left hand. Clicks are good - not too weak, nor strong and the wire is a good length. Similarly to the Frost Blue, the Ten comes with a rubber wire which I actually prefer over braised, since braided scrapes on the edge of my desk.
I consider this model as a 'no frills' mouse.....with some aesthetics. 'Frills' being obscure shapes like some other gaming mouses. Some look like a complete eyesore, but this mouse is to the point, simple and comfortable.
It's practically the same as the original Sensei; I came from the original Sensei, mine started acting faulty after 6 years of use; this is my third Sensei, first impressions (I got the mouse an hour ago), I have a Sensei Raw, an original Sensei (with the chrome finish)
Feels the same, perfect design, thankfully it's got the matte finish like the Sensei Raw, the weight of it feels much lighter than the original Sensei, much closer to the weight of the Raw, the only negative I find with it immediately is the lack of a braided cable; it's a premium feel mouse; and the prior Senseis have had this, the original did, the Raw did, I see no reason for the new version to have a normal cable.
I had the old Steelseries Sensei for almost 10 years and was pleasantly surprised that it is available again with upgraded internals. Before purchasing this however I wanted to try something different and subsequently ordered the Corsair Ironclaw and Logitech G502 Hero but had to return both as, whilst decent and quite comfortable, both just didn't have the same clicking feedback as this and had alot of unintentional clicking when resting my hand on them which is an issue I didn't have on the old Sensei as well as this new version - I use a palm grip. I found the simplistic and classic design of the SteelSeries Ten to be great and easy on the eyes with excellent comfort and ergonomics. The matte black coating feels great in the hand and the buttons have satisfying 'weight' and sound to them. The sensor is excellent, very accurate and smooth. Overall, a great mouse and I may be a bit bias as it is essentially the same shape as the old one - but if it aint broke dont fix it. Great mouse and would highly reccommend.
Okay so after my beaten 2 year old logitech g502 finally gave in, i went on the hunt for a new mouse that could be as good if not better than it and i found this, the steelseries sensei 10. Pros: Comfort Longevity Reliability Button variety Fits Both Right and Left Handed people RGB And Software Max CPI is 18,000
Cons: The scroll wheel is a little loose but still fine but sometimes goes over the amount you wanted to scroll
The side buttons are rly close and at the same level so for the first couple days you can press them both at the same time by accident until you stop after you hit that easy learning curve and it becomes muscle memory
The CPI profile changer has no indicator to say which setting you are on (1-5 depending on what you set) however it becomes easy to tell over time
This Gaming mouse it very worth its money, especially when you find it on a deal, it can last over 60 million clicks which (depending on how competitive you are) can last years. in my subjective opinion it is one of the best mouses out there and is worth the investment.
This is the 3rd replacement from Steel Series.......for a mouse that is suppose to be for competition spec. Very disappointed. Scroll bar loses count in 1......replacement last 2 days....left click double click......replacement for the replacement.....another clicker problem........this is for my son and he plays Fortnite, so during lockdown he has done mileage.......I don't expect this one to last much longer....well until the warranty runs out. Steel Series really need to sort out their quality control issues. We are a techy family of 4.......4 msi gaming laptops and 1 gaming rig for the son 2080 rtx i7 9th gen and I tend to buy steel series/corsair peripherals.
Given that it is supposed to be an excellent mouse, with all the hype and video advertisement. It was disappointing to find its not actually that great. It's so big. So wide and just plain uncomfortable to hold. Maybe if you're only planning on playing for 30 mins or you have bucket hands you'll appreciate this. But it's width means you can't fully relax your hand in game play so you'll probably end up with some form of repetitive strain syndrome.
Asides from the size, the build quality and packaging is fairly decent.
The mouse feels great. It is amazingly smooth and feels extremely comfortable. RGB is simple and looks clean.
Shifting from my Rival 300, this mouse is not hard to adapt to. The massive difference I can feel is that the mouse is quite low compared to the Rival 300.
Some people dislike this mouse because of the price and the features it came up with, at this time when honeycomb mouse are dominating the market. I personally haven't found any issues and would consider this as a potential next mouse.
If you are still interested in this mouse and it fits your hand (check on Rocket Jump Ninja on Youtube), go for it.
I like steelseries products and have had headsets, keyboards and other peripherals in the past. However, this mouse is far too slippy for me, the finish is smooth but it doesn't allow my hand to grip the mouse as my current Rival 100 does. In addition the side buttons are made for the hands of a midget and I found myself lifting my index fingers off in order to be able to press the side buttons with my thumb. All in all it's disappointing for such a well reviewed product, but it's not for me. I will be re-purchasing a Rival 100 series as that is far more comfortable despite being less dpi. The sensei 10 is discounted for a reason...
