An all-around great product that's among the best in its category. You'll almost certainly be happy.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Like many gaming mice, the SteelSeries Sensei includes a set of programmable buttons (in this case, there are seven), along with software that lets you fine-tune your settings and save profiles for different games or applications. Unlike most mice, the Sensei lets you save profiles directly to the mouse and access them using an LCD display on its base. You can also program its lighting system to display any color you choose, and personalize the LCD display. You can't adjust the Sensei's weight or shape, like you can with some gaming mice, but if its ergonomic — and ambidextrous — shape works for you, that may not matter.
