Also the G400/Deathadder both come in a cheap plastic frames. The Xai/Sensei are quality products. This whole "perfect control" thing is meaningless. Shape, material, sensor position and mouse pad surface have far more to do with performance than type of sensor.

I know this thread is old, but I just read this post and: That's just wrong. Sensor performance is the most important part for many gamers. Of course the rest is important too, but I would never chose a mouse with acceleration but quality built over one without accel and lesser buildquality. And also: Deathadder and the G400 are mice with great quality. My deathadder is still working perfectly after 4 years. I just switched to the G400 because I wanted to try a new mouse with an equally good sensor.

I had the first Deathadder and the feet wore down and mouse started scrapping after like a week. I hear the new black edition does it even faster! Problems like this are kind of even worse than acceleration. I currently use a Sensei (with everything gutted from the mouse thus changing it to 3 button functional) and am contemplating trying a new Deathadder anyway.

My aim using the Sensei is far better than using an Abyssus, but the Abyssus only has a 450/1800/3500 DPI step. The Deathadder's 900 step might actually be decent.

I wouldent call that a problem on the deathader, get a set of hyperglides and slap them ontop of the current feet, as a bonus youll get slightly less lift-off distace! smile.gif

Unless you wanna pay $50 extra for 9000 DPI you aren't gunna use, random lights, and a metal surface, go with the g400

Just to throw in my two cents, I'm going for the G400 and there are three practical reasons for that:

  1. Price - the 400 is so much cheaper for the Sensei, since both are barebone mice bundles unless you are after the flashy lights of the Sensei, you are paying a lot more money for relatively little in the way of extras
  2. The ambidextrous design of the Sensei in my opinion actually hinders the mouse hugely. The extra buttons the Sensei has is a godsend, but if you grip your mouse like I do, I'll get some pictures added, you will be hitting the side buttons constantly. The plus side is that the buttons typically don't do anything in game unless you program them...which brings me onto my last point
  3. The software for the Sensei (I'm assuming is the same as the Xai) is a horrid piece of software, it is perfectly fine for customising the way the mouse responds, but in terms of setting up macros to actually use the extra buttons on your mouse, unless you want a key press e.g. 'g' for grenade or 'tab' to lock onto enemies forget about it. The macros can only be programmed for five seconds, so something that requires holding the button down e.g. push to talk, is out of the question.


Hope that helps. I'm in the middle of writing a review of the Xai, G500 and WMO so if you aren't buying immediately maybe that will help you.

Please keep in mind that while the second picture seemingly shows the mouse being palmed the contact points are my thumb and fingertips as seen in the first picture in addition to the back of my palm as opposed to the entire palm.

The Sensei software is actually mostly flawless while the Xai firmware/software is god awful. Only problem with Sensei software is that the mouse doesn't track as well if the software is installed, so you have to change all the settings, save them to the mouse, then uninstall the software after.

Both good mice, but if you dont need the higher dpi and like both shapes theres no reason to get the sensei considering the price (although right now on Amazon US its 20 dollars cheaper than usual). It has the accel issue too, but i honestly I think that problem is blown way out of proportion for most people.
