"As an avid FPS-gamer both of these mice were tested by playing COD4, CS:S, and TF2 to mention a few. After getting used to the shape of the mouse everything went just as it was supposed to. I found myself getting the headshots I needed, even in difficult situations. Both of the mice tracked as they were supposed to and even all of the faster movements were tracked without any jitters."

DragonSteelMods

"If you're in the market for a mouse that performs well, allows some customization and just is a great mouse then the Ikari Optical might be for you, or if you're like me, a casual gamer then you might want to consider this mouse as it has the features that you'll want along with a decent price and of course the SteelSeries quality behind it."

"Honestly I really cannot fault this mouse for what it is, in my opinion it could be quite possibly the best mouse out there today, at least it is for me, it will be in use on my desk for some time to come."

Score: 5/5

CPI Toggle

Toggle On-the-fly

With “Toggle On-the-fly” we introduce an option for gamers to have 2 different sensitivity settings and switch between them with only 1 button click below the scroll wheel on the mouse. This allows you to switch your sensitivity settings quickly, whehter it’s for different weapon types in FPS games or in player vs. player action for MMORPG games.


Money

Reasonable price

To us, it’s important that when we remove the “extras” in a piece of hardware, the price should follow. This is why the SteelSeries Ikari Optical is in a reasonable price range, compared to other optical mice in the market. The balance between options, price, and quality is what makes this product one of the best in its category.

Plug and play

Driverless, plug and play

There are no external drivers needed to configure your settings for the Ikari Optical. All you need is in the mouse itself, which makes it perfect for travel and when using multiple platforms or computers.

Technology

Maximum performance

The SteelSeries Ikari Optical mouse is designed for one thing, to perform. FPS gamers love this mouse for its straight forward no-nonsense approach to gaming. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity, it’s whats “under the hood” that makes this mouse and FPS gamers ultimate weapon.


Glide

LARGE GLIDE SURFACE FOR MAXIMUM CONTROL

The large glide pads underneath the mouse give it a smooth and fluent glide on any surface. This provides extra stability and reduces friction for maximum control.
We recommend to change glides regularly as they eventually get worn down. See our made to fit SteelSeries Glide Ikari.

Did you know?

PERFECT FOR FPS

First person shooter players are common users of the Ikari Optical, due to the proven optical sensor providing unheard-of tracking on all surface.

SIMILARLY SHAPED

In spite of sharing shape, the Ikari Optical and Ikari Laser are lightyears apart when it comes to technology, surface and price tag. Choose freely.
