Install the software, it allows you to map buttons. Well I have the old non + version and the software lets me map them easily.

I use a Steelseries Xai and its the best mouse I ever owned. I use it for sc2 and bad company 2. It is super comfortable and way better than the MX518, it really annoys me when logetards come on here recommending that mouse over 90+$ steelseries mice which are better in so many ways.

First of all the MX518 sensor is not in the middle, so when you move it to one side you will look slitley up, and to the other side slitely down. I tried it in bad company and I could not stand the way it tracked.

Also of course the G500 is a better mouse than the MX518, but the Xai is a better mouse hands down then the G500.

Whatever people say about the sensor in the Xai I say that it is more then enough and being able to select increments of up anything from 1 to 5001 cpi is very useful to fine tuning it to how I play.

But the Xai has the best build quality I have ever seen in a mouse, it feels solid and non of the coating will wear away on me like it does on the G500.

A lser mouse is better. I dont care who tells you different. Optical mouse can read at 400-800 dpi while a laser mouse can read 2000+


Basically a Laser mouse is more accurate, and gives better control. When PC gamers look for a gaming mouse they go with laser. No questions asked, hands down, Laser mouse.

I have a Razer naga, as i ussually play MMO's. When i do play shooters though i find the extra buttons on the mouse way easier to use then having to take my fingers off of wasd. Also Logitech has a really nice lineup of gaming mice.

You fall into that catergory of people who think having 10 billion dpi makes it better. Its all about the sensor not the DPI. The original DA puts any lazer mouse to shame for its accuracy and control. I have owned laot of lazer mice since my DA broke and they just dont live up to their hype. Currently have a G500. Its ok but still it doesnt have the same zip and accuracy of the DA 1800.

Optical can, just has to be a specific glass surface like an Icemat I-2.

People used to pair those with early generation optical mice all the time.

Why wouldn't anyone recommend a sub ~$40 mouse that carries a 3 year warranty over one that's over twice the price and only carries a pathetic 1 year NA warranty? trololol

G500. Awkward sensor placement raised toward the top of the mouse.


Mx518. Normal dead center sensor position.



Also, I wouldn't recommend tuning your DPI unless it's in steps of 90. The Xai's MCU interpolates every other setting. As to why Steelseries would do that to a mouse targeted towards professional gamers, I haven't a clue.

I'm not sure if I have a bugged Xai or not, but I've found it doesn't even interpolate at all, it simply stays at the previous 90 increment setting (if that makes sense). For instance, if I use 500 DPI, it's really 450 DPI. Or if I use 400 DPI, it's really 360 DPI.

I've tried doing simple tests, like going in-game (CoD4, 1.6, and QL) and moving the Xai slowly across my mousepad and marking where it lands. 450 and 500 end up in the same spot. When I do this on a 518, the DPI's actually feel different. 450 and 500 on a 518 end up in the spots where you'd expect them to be....

I'm beginning to get the idea that the whole "ExactSense" aspect of the Xai doesn't even work. Actually, now that I think about it, I don't think any of the "features" on the Xai really work at all (I can't get FreeMove to work).

I use a Microsoft Serial mouse on my desktop. This thing tracks great after 16 years of use. I'd highly recommend one.
