I just got my xai and im not happy with the high LOD.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
1 mm yea right steelseries more like 3 or 4. When i go to turn my mouse it tries to push me back the way ive come from. Is it that hard to find a mouse in this world that does what its suppose to. Looks like its another mouse being returned. The mouse came with FW 1.42 which is the latest FW i think.

I would also like to add i have tried the mouse on a roccat taito, and a roccat sota. Could both of these cause the high LOD? the sota is a hard matt so i assumed it would be fine.

I use my wrist to move my mouse and i reposition my mouse alot meaning i lift the mouse alot. I need a mouse to stop tracking and not jittering. The lod must be about 5 to 6 cds high.


Does exactaim correct the jitter of the mouse? Their is also freemove.

strange, mine is like 1-2 on cloths and hard-surfaces.
maybe you've got a defect model?

My two Xai have identical LODs on my 3 hard pads (SX, Icemat 2nd ed black, Destructor) and the highest lift off is 2 CDs high on the SX and Destructor and only 1CD high on the Icemat.

So either you have some really odd pad that somehow keeps the Xai tracking and/or your have a defective unit.

Do you measure the lod with cds or cd cases?

I don't have those 2 pads but I never had such a high LOD on any mousepads I have tested the Xai

ExactAim is for "general correction", FreeMove is (MCU based) angle snapping aka prediction.

CDs because they are thin and have a hole in the middle (1 CD = 1.2mm).

Im not sure how to actually check this. I just lay cds on top of each and and lift the mouse to see if its inline with the highest cd?

I layed cds down and put the sensor over the highest cd to see if it stops tracking. I think i did it wrong before. It more or less stops tracking over 3 cds.

If i did it right then steelseries lied about it being 1mm.

Exact aim. It says its helps jitter. Is this best set at 0?

Higher ExactAim means more correction and therefor less jitter.
Because I have no jitter issues I have it set to 0.

I may need to put it up because when i go to turn i feel my mouse trying to pull me back in the direction im moving from. Im not sure if thats lod issues or my mouse pads?

that high lod "issue" ,yes - it happen to me with most optical-led' based sensors.
but Its really strange, the xai's sensor which is A9500[adns-9500] got the one of the lowest LOD.
again, I think your model is defective.

try to blow the sensor

clean the mouse pad

but, you should rma'ing it, that's really strange..
