SteelSeries CoD Black Ops II and Diablo III Gaming Mice Review




Being that they are merely Sensei [RAW]s in elaborate disguise, the CoD Black Ops II and Diablo III mice have some predictable hardware under the hood. The combination of a 16-bit MCU, Japanese Omron D2FC-F-7N equipped primary buttons, TTC side buttons, 16% UPE Teflon coverage, and Avago ADNS-A9500 optical sensor is a great package if you're looking for a serious gaming mouse to use with a single computer. The original Sensei remains the only option for those wanting to retain their mouse profiles while travelling between machines. Being that I am relegated to a single desktop as most gamers are, I'm personally more comfortable with losing out on this party trick if it means keeping an extra $20 in my wallet. Being able to track at up to 150 inches per second and 5670 counts per inch with 30G of acceleration is still nothing to scoff at. 


The Sensei [RAW] platform still offers a great amount of personalization via the SteelSeries Engine, where an unlimited number of user profiles can be created, each with its own grouping of LED brightness, CPI sensitivity, FPS rate, and macro assignment settings. The ease of navigation and simplicity of the graphic interface on the SteelSeries Engine makes accessing, modifying, and applying these advanced options as easy as a few clicks. Users can also track their button usage within matches to get a better idea of how to setup their macros more efficiently. More information on the SteelSeries Engine and additional screenshots can be found in our review of the original SteelSeries Sensei.
