Sensor question (a9500/9800) Dust In Sensor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to ask everyone if theres any dust/hair in sensor issues with either the Taipan or Sensei/RAW? I know I ask this question a lot in threads, but I don't get enough input, all i get is one or maybe two comments.The Taipan/mlg sensei uses the 9800 sensor, but I really want to know if it has any issues with dust/hair like the xai had. The xai was amazing except for that one massive flaw it had, I would get dust/hair in the sensor and it would randomly skip, keep in mind I own a cat, and I don't like having to pull out the dust roller every time I want to play a game. (I ask the same about the sensei/sensei raw, which has an altered version of the 9500)

Any input would be amazing, maybe someone could even test this, afterwards your suppose to use some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip swab to get rid of the dust/hair.

I know what you are trying to say. This dust problem has bugged me so many times when using the XAi. The tracking would be really messed up, and the CPI values(don't know if mine was faulty) would feel faster/slower on certain days. I don't have a cat, but the dust is sure a problem for the ADNS9500 or particularly the XAi. The sensor hole is so small, jabbing a q-tip or cleaning it is a PITA. frown.gif

I own the Sensei now, and so far it has been perfect. IDK if there's dust on it, but the tracking feels just as I got it on the 1st day. I've the vanilla one, which uses the same sensor as the XAi. I can suggest you the Sensei as I haven't faced that problem yet and I hope I don't get it anytime in the future. biggrin.gif

One thing I can recommend is using a hard mat such as the Razer Scarab/SteelSeries 9HD since you have cat. Cloth pads becomes sticky after a while and builds up grime from regular use which is also very hard to keep clean as you can't use water to wipe it off. The hard pads would allow you to wipe it after you are done using the computer and thus less prone on the sensor getting dusty. Hope it works out. smile.gif

To clean cloth pads you use laundry detergent and a soft brush every once in a while. Depending on how much you sweat or eat with your gaming hand.
