   After waiting for quite a few years to play/enjoy the next chapters of two very special PC titles it was only natural that the moment The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt (it's finally here) and Galactic Civilizations III made their debut we'd cut all ties with the outside world (well not exactly but you get the point) for at least a week (trust me when i say that even a week wasn't enough). So since it so happened that both titles got released during the past week once again we had very little choice other than to focus in wrapping up the reviews of some very interesting and unique gaming peripherals we've been using for quite a while now. Obviously as you can all imagine we chose to test the ones that would also offer us the best possible experience with the above titles and one of those was no other than the Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse by our very good friends over at SteelSeries.


   From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making professional gaming gear that provide meaningful benefits to gamers of all skill-level, with the most demanding being those gamers whose lively hood depends on the performance of our products. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began as a small two-person operation in Copenhagen back in 2001 has become a global leader in professional gaming products. SteelSeries recognized the need for superior, high-quality professional gaming gear that would give players a competitive edge. Fast-forward to today, and we've come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer!


   How many of you remember the Sensei MLG and Sensei [RAW] by SteelSeries both of which we reviewed in the past? Well the Sensei Wireless falls somewhere between those two in terms of performance since under its hood we find the ADNS 9800 laser sensor by Pixart which offers a resolution of up to 8200 CPI (16400 DCPI), 150 IPS (inches per second) tracking speed and 30Gs of acceleration. The Sensei Wireless also features SteelSeries switches (30 million clicks), internal rechargeable battery pack that gives it up to 20 hours of life, 16.8 million colors illumination, ergonomic ambidextrous design, 8 programmable buttons, 1 ms (millisecond) response rate, 1000Hz polling rate and 2.4GHz wireless connectivity for a virtually lag-free experience. On paper however many things look great and especially when it comes to wireless gaming mice we are very skeptical about the "gaming" part since in the past wireless connectivity was not what we'd call ideal for that.
