New SteelSeries mouse: SteelSeries Raw? - Page 8

post #71 of 192
It wasn't dust in the sensor. It was either the DPI actually could be adjusted in increments of 1, *OR*, anytime you changed DPI, it would give you a different feel even if you used the same number due to steelseries firmware on Xai being god awful and buggy.

i highly doubt it would be the sensor allowing the increments of 1 because you shouldn't be able to feel the difference, wouldn't be surprised if it was the firmware as I've had it say 400dpi and actually be 800dpi until I kept changing the dpi around to fix it.

also didn't skylit or someone already confirm that it is in increments of 90 in both the xai and sensei?

I find it more appealing than the Sensei (if they don't cheap out on the quality) and I allways liked the idea of a lighter Xai but in the end im perfectly fine with my Xai and won't pay 60$ to get one that is few grams lighter.

If it tracks like a Sensei, there's no comparison. I also had problems with Xai's DPI inconsistency (probably the firmware just like r0ach says), not to mention that horrible negative acceleration. Sensei is light years ahead. But you already know that, you own both wink.gif
However nobody knows what exactly they did to improve tracking on cloth and if they use a different MCU, firmware etc this thing may turn out to be just another Xai with a glowing logo.

I know that my Xai works perfectly fine on cloth (no neg. accel. problems, ..), so I also never had a technical need for the Sensei. wink.gif

seriously?
i tried different cloth pads, different firmware.
i even had an RMA on my xai because of a broken mouseswitch and there was always noticable neg. accel. frown.gif
so i was able to try two xais.
now i am sad i sold it already frown.gif

That's why I usually don't post this if the talk is about the Xais problems on cloth, doesn't help anyone anyway.

I'm also perfectly fine that people might not belive it/me. smile.gif

I've played a game using Xai once. At the beginning I could do over 180° turn on my whole mousepad. During game it seemed the mouse have been slowing down. After a couple of rounds I could barely do a little over 90° on the same mousepad. Blowing the sensor helped. It was the last time I used Xai for CS 1.6.

It was on cloth QcK clone mousepad.
