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.

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.

Pros
Toggle switch for CPI
Driverless
comfort
track on lots of surfaces
Cons
might be heavier than some users may like
Summary
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.

My favorite part of the mouse so far is how well it tracks. My diamondback would bug-out and barely move on my current desk. The Xai worked perfectly out of the box! it even has path correction for more un-even surfaces. Very pleased with this purchase.

Summary
Went from a RAT 5 that broke to this and I don't miss the old mouse. It's simple, and very effective. I love it and would recommend to anyone looking for a new gaming mouse.

Pros
Great texture. Smooth glide feet. Easy to set up. Profile switching and setup is easy using the LCD on the bottom of the mouse.
Cons
Only having 2 DPI settings is hard to adjust to after using a logitech mouse.
Summary
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.

If you are looking for a new gaming mouse and have the budget, go for it!

Summary
Nice feeling, responsive mouse for gaming or for attaching to a Mac so you can get some real right-click and middle-click action going on.
Good job on buttons and the feel of the wheel.

Pros
Excellent quality; highly configurable.
Cons
Does not play well with a digital KVM.
Summary
Great mouse - I was looking for a replacement for the razer mouse that I had (there were some problems and the LED's were too annoying).
Did a lot of research and bought this mouse - Excellent mouse.
It is taking some time to get use to from a razer mouse (the back end is a bit wider than my copperhead/krait that i had) but overall I am very pleased.

I am taking one star away for that it does not play well with my iogear digital kvm - it takes a long time for the mouse to be recognized and sometimes the mouse device is unrecognized on a switch; if it didn't have this problem it would be a solid 5 star rating.

Summary
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.

The build quality from steelseries is very good and it seems it will last forever !!

Definitely the best mouse I bought the last 10 years !

Pros
the God weapon for FPS games; High tech LCD adjustment for everything; Driver-less; Path correction; Durable.
Cons
Wheel feels cheap and tough to move;
Summary
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.

Not like Razer or Logitech using very junk micro switches on their mouse, even on flagships, SS uses better ones on XAI. You can also buy official mouse feet from SS when yours are worn out. BTW my death adders both have double-click issue due to garbage micro switches Razer nowadays use. I miss the comfortable feeling Death-adder gave to me, but Razer is ruining its reputation by adopting rubbish microswitches.

If 3D wheel is used like Logitech's, this will be the first perfect mouse in the world.

Pros
-Ability to save & export mouse profile
-Profile stays with the mouse
-comfortable
Cons
-Thumb button size & placement
Summary
This mouse is very comfortable. Before I bought this mouse it looked very ordinary and not eye catching. However I have found that this mouse is of high quality and has alot of settings to work with.

The thing that I do like is the ability to save the profile and export it to a save place. So if you ever get a replacement you can just transfer the profile. I am a FPS gamer and my mouse setting is very important, this removes the learning curve of a system refresh and loosing the setting you have become accustomed to.

Absolutely great

Comment: personal settings and adjustments are stored on the mouse itself, you can carry one of your most important gaming tools with you and be at the top of your game any time and anywhere. If you want a solid gaming mouse with great performance, you don’t have to look any further than the Steelseries Xai.

Comment: You owe it to yourself to seriously consider the Xai Laser over the competition since it offers what we find to be an enviable balance of features, comfort for palm grippers and gaming performance.

Comment: The Xai may not have the gimmicks of some gaming mice but the raw performance and extensive configuration options are class-leading.
