I've been using sensei for a few months now, but I haven't tried it without steelseries engine. Are you sure that it tracks better if it's not installed?

Sorry to hijack, but was wondering how are you enjoying the Sensei? What surface are you using it on? smile.gif

I have to say that i liked xai better. Mostly because sensei's coating is awful when compared to xai's. I'm using it on qck heavy, still same old negative accel on cloth pads. Also, it seems like dust affects the sensor in even weirder ways that it affected xai's sensor. Sensitivity changes as soon as dust gets through the hole on the bottom, which never happened with xai, and i used it for two years or so. Other than that, scroll wheel is finally working as it should (both of my xais had problems with it) and boot bug (boot taking up to 120 seconds) is fixed.

Boot bug fixed how?
Because SS said they dont give a flying **** about it not working more or less.

Coating is better on xai for my taste aswell. The sensor hole is smaller and worse though due to dust problems.

Boot crap when I upgraded my computer made the mouse 100% worthless however.

Raw seems like a better option for the once that liked the Xai, abit lighter with no useless LCD and no boot problems (most likely)

It is fixed, i have no idea how. Boot with xai, as i said, took ~120 seconds on my pc, and with sensei it's normal. That's one of the first things i noticed.

Can anybody else confirm that sensei's tracking is better without steelseries engine installed on pc?

Well just tried, nothing changed.
And I can't see how since there is no new firmware for the stupid mouse biggrin.gif

Xai still pure useless with most new hardware.

Wow... I've been using the Sensei with my Puretrak Talent and it's simply amazing...
I've had ZERO problems with dust, whilst I would see me cleaning the Xai every couple of hours(it was pretty annoying).

Have your guys tried adjusting the lift-off setting on the Sensei? I use it on minimum and still works perfectly, but I imagine it would require some tunning with certain pads.

I also use with no driver whatsoever, never bothered to compare, but I only adjusted to the settings I use and got rid of it.

i believe that it would be better if one would be comfortable with its grip style; the 1:1 ratio of the G400's sensor assuming that it is a newer, non-angle snapping one would be ideal for the precision needed for F.P.S., and do not neglect the other mice that have 1:1 ratio sensors but different grip styles, such as the DeathAdder, eVo, AM, Recon, and Savu
