Summary: Purchased this mouse to replace my dead razer diamondback. My initial impression of the Xai is very good. the shape is more round than I am used to, but it lets me fit my whole palm onto the mouse and it is just as easy to hold with my preferred claw grip. My favorite part of the mouse so far is how well it tracks. My diamondback would bug-out and barely move on my current desk. The Xai worked perfectly out of the box!
Pros: Toggle switch for CPI, Driverless, comfort, track on lots of surfaces
Summary: I bought this mouse after my Logitech G9 started to die. I owned a Steelseries 6GV2 and I-1 glassmat mouspad prior to buying this and I love SteelSeries' products so far. The reviews on this mouse that I've seen have all been positive, which is rare. But yeah, so far the only problem (which is really just an adjustment issue) is stepping down the number of available DPI settings from logitech. If you are looking for a new gaming mouse and have the budget, go for it!
Pros: Great texture. Smooth glide feet. Easy to set up. Profile switching and setup is easy using the LCD on the bottom of the mouse.
Cons: Only having 2 DPI settings is hard to adjust to after using a logitech mouse.
Summary: Great mouse - I was looking for a replacement for the razer mouse that I had (there were some problems and the LED's were too annoying). Did a lot of research and bought this mouse - Excellent mouse. It is taking some time to get use to from a razer mouse (the back end is a bit wider than my copperhead/krait that i had) but overall I am very pleased.
Summary: This little baby have been my mouse for almost 6 months now and all I have to say is that it's a overall great mouse. If you liked the shape of the almighty intellimouse, you 'll fall in love with this great mouse. The build quality from steelseries is very good and it seems it will last forever !! Definitely the best mouse I bought the last 10 years !
Summary: One thing that cannot be aware of before you own it is the mouse won't get your hand sweat stains. I have 2 Logitech G7 and 2 Death-adders. they all have my hand mud after an intensive play. XAI is smooth and clean all the time, which is really unbelievable for me. Until now do I realize the surface material does make huge difference! I won't go back to plastic shell of Logitech or rubber of Razer anymore.
Pros: the God weapon for FPS games; High tech LCD adjustment for everything; Driver-less; Path correction; Durable.
Summary: This mouse is very comfortable. Before I bought this mouse it looked very ordinary and not eye catching. However I have found that this mouse is of high quality and has alot of settings to work with. The thing that I do like is the ability to save the profile and export it to a save place. So if you ever get a replacement you can just transfer the profile.
Pros: -Ability to save & export mouse profile, -Profile stays with the mouse, -comfortable
