no........... you can't. You can select to turn it off in settings, but the sensor it self has accel which cannot be avoided. This is true for all the mice, sans the Kana which has other problems.

It's not all personal preference. It's also objective stats. I'm not saying its a bad mouse because I personally dislike it. I'm saying objectively its a bad mouse because the sensor is bad.

Sensationalism and over reaction.

With a quality hard mouse pad the Xai is the best mouse I've ever had. Been using it for close to a year now in BF3, COD, CSS and SC2. Never noticed this acceleration all the kids keep whining about, its just a great mouse that points where I want it to point.

In terms of overall build quality, Steelseries is leagues above any Razer product.

I would happily recommend the Xai along with a 4HD mouse pad to anyone looking for a good quality mouse.

I have had plenty of suggestions so I am going to add a poll now. I don't have a favourtism to Razer, it just happens that my razer has alot of things i really like right now, the matt surface really help as I get sweaty hands and my hands have slipped off other mice.

Noticing the Acceleration depends on many factors, how much your used to your sensitivity, how low/high your sensitivity is, etc.

But there is Acceleration, which is fact and shouldnt be on a "gaming mouse".

I probably just don't have OCD, and seeing how the only people complaining about this mouse and its supposed acceleration problems are people who DO NOT OWN OR USE THE IT, I don't see how your recommendation has any relevance here.

I play at different sensitivities for different games. For SC2 its higher, for FPS games its lower. Never have I noticed this acceleration or had a problem aiming or had any sort of glitch of the sort. I also play at various polling rates depending on the game, all at multiples of my monitors refresh rate. Right now 600Hz seems to be my sweet spot.

Point being, if I can customize the mouse so that I can play all of my games without any sort of problems surrounding this supposed acceleration, that means that even if this does have acceleration its not really a problem.

First, How do you wanna which mice i own and which not?

And second, why should somebody who is getting annoyed of the ADNS-9500 Acceleration use a mouse with that sensor?

Nice for you and i play FPS with low sense @ 45-55cm/360° 30+h/week for nearly 4 years now, point being is that i can feel the acceleration cause i am simply used to my sensitivity, just because you dont have a problem with it, doesnt mean that others are also fine with it.

I own a G9x and owned a Xai. While I can't say whether or not I experienced noticeable acceleration or not, I can say that I strive to eliminate any random variables or inconsistencies. Just the knowledge that the ADNS-9xxx series could have slight acceleration problems is enough to make me not use the mice they're included in - especially when better sensors exist.

It's a disorder, I think.

After reading a little more into it, I saw that the deathadder is an old optical mouse, how can that compete with the newer laser mice?
