SteelSeries Xai is a tool - not a gadget. The SteelSeries Xai Laser Mouse features state of the art technology and groundbreaking technical specifications. The technology, shape, size, weight and surface of the SteelSeries Xai were designed with one purpose: to enhance the users performance. Research and development was done in close cooperation with fulltime professional gamers from USA, Europe and Asia.
The sensor offers huge improvement over current laser mice, processing 12,000 Frames Per Second at movement speeds of 150+ Inches Per Second. This level of performance results in completely reliable tracking even during the most frantic and fast-paced games. SteelSeries Xai can be fully configured via a LCD menu system on the back of the mouse, while supporting advanced macro capabilities of up to 200 strokes per button programmable through the lean software.
Expert users will appreciate the SteelSeries FreeMove, SteelSeries ExactSens, SteelSeries ExactAim, SteelSeries ExactRate, the automatic lift distance calibration and other sensor innovations from SteelSeries.

Purchased this mouse to replace my dead razer diamondback. My initial impression of the Xai is very good. the shape is more round than I am used to, but it lets me fit my whole palm onto the mouse and it is just as easy to hold with my preferred claw grip.
I bought this mouse after my Logitech G9 started to die. I owned a Steelseries 6GV2 and I-1 glassmat mouspad prior to buying this and I love SteelSeries' products so far. The reviews on this mouse that I've seen have all been positive, which is rare. But yeah, so far the only problem (which is really just an adjustment issue) is stepping down the number of available DPI settings from logitech.
This little baby have been my mouse for almost 6 months now and all I have to say is that it's a overall great mouse. If you liked the shape of the almighty intellimouse, you 'll fall in love with this great mouse.
One thing that cannot be aware of before you own it is the mouse won't get your hand sweat stains. I have 2 Logitech G7 and 2 Death-adders. they all have my hand mud after an intensive play. XAI is smooth and clean all the time, which is really unbelievable for me. Until now do I realize the surface material does make huge difference! I won't go back to plastic shell of Logitech or rubber of Razer anymore.
