Not for me.

I caved and picked up a Xai from the deal I posted earlier today.

But this is just as a stepping stone while I get something more suitable lined up, please keep suggesting I'm looking deeply into every one.

Logitech G400 would probably be the best out there but might not be suit your grip.

The Steelseries Kana would be the next best thing but you do need to update it to the latest firmware to fix the pixel jump bug. I highly recommend changing the mouse feet as well, since the ones that you get with it are terrible (that said they might have changed the feet to the correct ones it since initial release). Also imho remove the drivers after configuring the settings to your liking, since the drivers use like a 150mb of ram


I have the Kana and tbh after updating, changing the mouse feet and removing the mouse drivers its practically a perfect mouse for me nice and light although, the mouse cord is a huge pain the backside

I would agree with you, and if you asked me a couple of weeks ago I would be stating the same thing (kana is good etc). Thing is, it's just too expensive for what you get. Gosh there was so much potential in that mouse, and if they had just used a flexible rubber (most likely cheaper than their s$%*y stiff braided) cord and transferred those costs to better switches, it would be awesome. Sensor is ok at low DPI (low sens users) and wheel feels good. They just messed up and caved into mainstream market allure, plus all those useless sponsorship and marketing costs (funnily enough, I think the pros who used it hated it). It's a good mouse, but only get it if you can source it cheap. The steelseries website is having a sale using a coupon code: PXE2012 (credits to Huff) and you better ensure they send proper feet along with it.

The thing that gets me is the side button positioning, which is something I really don't like about the Xai or the G400.

They're at the top, somewhat inaccessible to my thumb, and I make great use of the Mouse4 and Mouse5 buttons while browsing, I also use them ingame for weapon switching, selecting grenades, other things in other games, so it's important to me that their positioning is accessible and I don't lose comfort or have to move my hand while moving the mouse too much.

Usually my thumb would rest right on those buttons in that indentation in the side of the mouse. Perfect positioning.

Kana comes close, with closer to the top positioning but the buttons are much fatter and the mouse is wider.

to be honest you'll get used to the different position after a while of using the mouse believe me,

I've been through about 5/6 different mice in a really quite short space of time, all with different mouse 4/5 buttons (and even mouse 6/7 in 2 cases) positions and I've learnt adapt quite quickly and to be honest once you find a mouse that your comfortable with your muscle memory will kick in and it will be instinctive.

also the positioning of the mouse buttons on the Xai for example I find allows you to roll your thumb onto the buttons so when your resting or lifting the mouse you won't accidentally press any of the side buttons, but that just me xD

all that a side just find a comfortable mouse with the features you want and play with it and eventually you'll just get used to the new hardware smile.gif

I don't think you are going to be satisfied with anything other than a new Lachesis. Yes, you will adjust to a different mouse, but why adjust when you know exactly what mouse has worked best for you? I have the 5600 DPI Lachesis, and it works flawlessly. The Lachesis is a very unique mouse (shape; button placements,smoothness, and resistence; glide, etc,), and it 's shape is definitely not for everyone. (I think that this is why so many reviews tend to be not so good). I'm not a gamer, but I suspect that any other mouse but the Lachesis will be a disappointment for you because of the uniqueness of the Lachesis. Try to find that receipt, or go for the updated version (or see if you can find a sale on the older version). Good luck.

How about the Logitech G9x and the Razer Deathadder Black Edition?
