Steel Series Xai.. - Page 17

post #161 of 255
It's tough though, because we all have different size hands, different grips, etc. Some of you really love the G9X, but I can't stand it. Other's see the Ikari as an overweight monster.

We were all happy with IM 1.1. Then one of you had to look down and go, "Huh...wonder if..." Then you posted it somewhere or told someone and word of mouth caught fire.

...years later...

"OCZ announces the release of their new mouse, the Firechief, the first mouse to actually catch fire when slicing through the enemy."

"Corsair announces the release of their new mouse, the RAM!, the first mouse with a self propelled motor that will give you that extra push when you've had your last Monster at the big LAN."

I wasn't thinking of anyone in specific, but I know some have claimed that the Xai didn't have the same problem as the G500. I just gave them the benefit of the doubt thinking steelseries did something with avago to tweak the sensor's firmware to allow it to perform better on cloth pads.

I still don't accept that your xai has a magical 9500 that doesn't perform like the rest. Two G500's and a Xai tested on two different computers using freshly cleaned pads show similar performance. I seriously doubt all three mice are defective along with both PC's.

Do you have a different or older firmware instead of 1.4.2? Was your Xai a pre production model with a different variation of the 9500?

Well, to be perfectly honest it isn't that easy to find the negative accel...

You pretty much have to be looking for it to find it...

Yes this is true, you have to test for it after the mouse feels out of place. But that doesn't change the fact that it is there.

People told me Mionix NAOS 5000 is a perfect mouse. Looking into getting it soon.

Understandable and I most likely wouldn't either if it were the other way around.


If you ever find your way to West Austria I could show you.

Sure, there is a tone of great mice out there but I love Xai, because of the simple design. Never was big on flashy lights and and a million buttons. Xai is well built, accurate as hell, easy to operate and has the simple looks I look for in hardware. When I got it, I was planning to use it for games and games alone but nowadays I can't even surf the net without it. Probably I am repeating stuff that other users have posted over time but as a new member of OCN, I feel obliged to share my appreciation for this product. I love it.

p.s. The only thing I would change is move the brand logo to the bottom of the mouse so there is nothing to stain the great looks.

I just got my Xai today. I have a question - is the right button easier to press than the left button? I mean, just very slightly...

It'd make sense if it was. I'm not near my Xai right now but I can tell you that the MX Revolution I'm currently using has a lighter right button than left button
