The software is not required for operation. If you want to influence your mouse, you should use the software Engine 3. It can be downloaded from the SteelSeries website.
The software presents itself quite slim at first, which is certainly an advantage, as it helps with orientation. Nevertheless, SteelSeries does not forego additional features. So it is not only possible to adjust the resolution of the sensor and the illumination. The software also has a game integration and a Discord interface. The RGB lighting of the mouse can be used to draw attention to incoming notifications and the like. Since the hand lies on the mouse during use, this only helps when you are not sitting at the PC.
Macros can be set individually and saved in profiles. There are also suggestions from which you can choose. Overall, we are very satisfied with the software, as it offers many possibilities without being confusing.
Of course, the Sensei Ten has to prove itself especially in the practice for which it was made. Therefore we have dedicated ourselves to the practical test. First of all, we found that the mouse not only fits well in the hand, but also glides comfortably over the mouse pad. It is neither too light nor too heavy. However, if you have very small hands, you might have difficulties dealing with the Sensei Ten appropriately – but this should only affect very few people.
We also liked the optimized sensor very much. The mouse reacts precisely and quickly to inputs. The mouse pointer doesn’t break immediately when you take off slightly, which quickly happens unintentionally – so the promised compensation by the sensor is actually given. The only negative point we noticed in the test is the relatively high resistance of the mouse buttons. However, we could get used to it after only a short time.
Overall, the mouse is also very suitable for fast games. The mouse pointer follows every movement without any noticeable delay. Every input is implemented immediately. The user experience is pleasant. We are very satisfied.
