SteelSeries Ikari Laser review
With a smooth, rubberised coating, the Ikari Laser has an complicated yet comfortable design. The left and right buttons operate on a hair trigger, making it ideal for games involving frantic gunfire. Two further buttons sit on the left of the mouse.
Sensitivity can be changed using a button just below the scroll wheel, with two small LEDs indicating which setting is active. With settings up to 3,200dpi, the Ikari is incredibly smooth in all of our test games. Hold down the button and the two sensitivity settings can be adjusted using the scroll wheel and a small LCD screen on the underside of the mouse.
The mouse is fully customisable via the supplied software, including assigning macros to the buttons, while profiles used by some of the world's leading gamers can also be downloaded from the SteelSeries website. Once again the LCD comes into play here, displaying the current profile. It may not be the flashiest-looking mouse, but it's the best for games. It wins our Best Buy award.
