It is, but it's annoying when you expect a cursor to stop in a specific location and it doesn't.

It mainly only effects those that use a super low sensitivity tho.

So... can anyone confirm that sensei doesn't have the same problem as xai when it comes to boot? Especially when it comes to p67 boards.

I believe I read a post from kimrom confirming that it's been fixed. 90% sure.

Does anyone know if the Sensei is going to be released on Amazon in the states anytime soon?

If you are saying that accel only affects those with superlow sens, thats simply not true.

In fact, if you have very low sens you are more inclined to want to have some accel. Since you want to be able to do a 180 quickly but still want to have the accuracy in small movements most of the people I know that use accel have low sens.

When i use fast sens (1300+ DPI, sens 1, win 6) the acceleration on Xai and Kinzu doesn't bother me so much (not even on cloth). It's almost not noticeable. For fast sens users these mice are really great. I think the more you move the mouse on your pad, the bigger the change of acceleration screwing things up. But i can't hit anything with this sens so i tend to use medium to low sens. Acc is really bad for low sens users and i can't think of one situation where you'd want acceleration to kick in. Even if you do 180 quickly how would that help? You still wouldn't be able to hit the enemy in one move.

Did they fix the dust in sensor problem, where if you get any dust in the sensor the mouse will randomly skip till you clean it with a q-tip? The Avago 9500 sensor had that issue, if they fixed it with the Sensei I would think about trying it out.

Sounds like a physical issue. That's just how sensors work, you can't fix that.

180 shots are easy if you have really good aim like me and I can do it with acceleration on quake. The difference is xai/kinzu have some weird non-linear hardware acceleration/deceleration whereas quake is intentional and controllable. CS doesn't have a good built-in accel and it is an easy+slow game so it isn't even needed.

I guess it's preference since I don't really have issues after bumping my sensitivity a bit, but the keyword here is "I"

If you're talking about quake, I can also use controlled acceleration, although I find the Avago 9500 to be inconsistent like glockateer has stated. That doesn't mean I can't do good with a mouse like the Xai/Sensei, but I feel that my skill wall increases with mice that offer solid linear tracking and have good shapes. Of course, that's just me.

I'll actually be giving the Sensei an extended trial period as I was too hastily with the Xai before selling it off.

So easy even touchpad will suffice.
