SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Review (Page 1 of 4) | APH Networks

Some questions have obvious answers. For example, what is the difference between a dress and a skirt? Uhh... actually, I am a guy, so I really did not know the difference until someone told me three months ago. As it turned out, my colleague Aaron was no exception; he actually found out just last week. If you have not searched up the difference yet, basically, a dress is full body, whereas a skirt only covers up to the waist. Therefore, to make reword this into a question with an obvious answer those of the male gender will understand, what is the difference between a wired network and a wireless network? If you answered one has wires and one does not, congratulations, this is not a trick question -- my Electrical Engineering professor who taught a third year course in communication systems will have to agree with you (This was actually a real question that appeared on a quiz and the midterm when I took it a few years ago). Judging by the same logic, as we come together today to review the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless, one could say this is just the wireless version of the APH Recommended SteelSeries Sensei reviewed by Devin Chollak in December 2011. I mean, they called it the Sensei Wireless for a reason. Apparently, unlike the obvious-question-has-obvious-answer I proposed earlier, the SteelSeries Sensei Wireless is not just a wireless version of the SteelSeries Sensei, even though it is, indeed, wireless. Instead, it is the wireless version of a modified and upgraded SteelSeries Sensei. Featuring an improved sensor and more durable switches in addition to cutting the cord, is this the mouse to rule them all? You have questions, we got answers.
