SteelSeries has just released some firmware updates for it’s Sensei mouse and Kana mouse.


Windows Firmware Update Tool v1.17.8.6 contains important fixes and improvements for the firmware on the Sensei and Kana mice. In particular, the improvements are defined below:

Sensei (firmware version 244):

– The Sensei no longer stays powered on while the computer is in sleep mode.

– Performance Enhancements: Read and Write operations have been dramatically improved. The Sensei cursor no longer “skips” for 1-2 seconds when switching between profiles or saving profiles.

– In unique certain situations, DCPI mode would get disabled. This issue has been resolved.

– ExactAim and ExactAccel no longer cancel each other out.

Kana (firmware version 260):

– Fixed an intermittent issue that caused the cursor to be stuck in movement when the mouse is quickly moved off the surface.
