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 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.

  • newegg Best-in-class technology Featuring a state of the art laser sensor offering you consistent and reliable performance, the SteelSeries Xai boasts 10.8 megapixel HD image correlation at up to 12,000 frames per second and the ability to handle tracking movements of up to 150 inches per second.
  • newegg Advanced macros On the SteelSeries Xai you can record 8 macros for key combinations that can be up to 200 different keystrokes and with a precise timing of sequences. This allows you to setup common commands and shortcuts that enhance your actions per minute and ensures that you don’t accidentally hit the wrong key and miss out on important in-game sequences.
  • newegg True sensitivity SteelSeries ExactSens allows you to control how fast your pointer should move by adjusting your CPI in increments of 1 between 100-5001. This means, the SteelSeries Xai offers you true hardware based sensitivity settings, freeing you of interpolation from game software. To take advantage of ExactSens you need to deactivate any cursor acceleration and set your sensitivity settings in-game (sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) and on your operating system to default.
  • newegg Tracks on any surface SteelSeries ExactAim makes it possible to adjust the way the SteelSeries Xai gets information from the laser sensor. For instance, if you have a surface that is not optimized for gaming, then you can now simply adjust the jitter and prediction corrections. For optimal use of the Xai we strongly recommend the SteelSeries 9HD mousepad, which was developed simultaneously with the Xai and features a prism-like textured surface for maximum performance for next generation mice.
  • newegg Personalized path correction setting SteelSeries FreeMove eliminates path correction, which makes the mouse predict, correct and make your movement straight. With the SteelSeries Xai, you can adjust the amount of path correction or completely disable it for 100% control of your movement. For FPS games that require high precision, this is a crucial feature.
  • newegg Pro gamer profiles The SteelSeries Xai allows you to configure and store up to 5 profiles on the mouse. This helps you easily switch between profiles when playing different games or performing tasks on your computer that require different levels of sensitivity and precision. You can also exchange your setting profiles with other Xai users as well as try downloading a profile from a few of SteelSeries’ professional gamers who’ve used the Xai to win major global tournaments.

4 out of 5 eggsXai laser

Pros: -Comfortable to hold and lightweight. It requires minimal force to get it moving on a good surface.
-DPI changer can be very useful in some games.
-The buttons are in a very good position. You won't accidentally press them, but if you need to press them you can reach them with your thumb comfortably.
-Ambidextrous, left handed users are fine.

Cons: -Very little pinky support, so if you hold it with a palm grip it is uncomfotable. Best if you use a "Claw Grip"
-The DPI changer is in an awkward place and can be hard to
reach mid-game.
-Prone to fingerprints and grime from sweat. Would recommend keeping a cloth around to wipe it down because
after a few hours of use it can start to feel grimy and gross.
-At $85 it is very pricey.

Other Thoughts: Been using this mouse for a few months now. I have not had to replace it and there are no technical problems whatsoever. It is all around a solid mouse and well worth the money.
I would recommend it to any gamer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat minimalist mouse

Pros: This mouse has a great grip and smooth feel for anyone that's not looking for a big mouse with a ton of programmable buttons.

I personally like the lack of an ergonomic design to allow ambidextrous use.

Cons: None in the several months I've been using it.

Other Thoughts: If you want a high profile programmable mouse then this probably wont fit your bill. The only other mouse I'd recommend is the Logitech G500. It has 10 keys and you can add weight if that's your thing.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not buy

Pros: Smooth nice fit

Cons: Can not map a keyboard key to side buttons. Would like to have button 5 and 7 be page up and page down. Can not get it to do it. In fact cant get any macro to work. Try to find a place or even there faq to explain how. To contact support by email you have to create an account.

Other Thoughts: Had this mouse for a long time and every time I connect it I just get ticked off at this thing and put it away. What a waste of money for me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *driverless customization (e.g., polling rate, CPI, etc.)
*smooth teflon feet
*lightweight
*sweat resistant rubber coating

The scroll wheel on this mouse is pretty much perfect. It's nearly silent and gives just the right amount of "click." I've used it for hours and haven't had a problem yet.

Cons: *side buttons (on the right side, if you're right handed) can get in the way sometimes, but this is part of the ambidextrous design and something that just requires a little getting used to.
*The mouse right/left buttons are very sensitive to any pressure. Sometimes I accidentally hit them when I don't mean to. I'm still getting used to this as well. I will probably consider this a pro later on once I fully adjust.

Other Thoughts: I'm a long-time Logitech MX500/510/518 guy. I've tried using different mice before, like the IME3.0 and logitech G9, but I always went back to the MX mice.

I recently bought the SS Xai after trying out the Ikari. I didn't like the Ikari's ergonomic design and felt it was kind of heavy. But I did like the driverless customization on it and the rubber coating. Knowing the Xai had the same features but was ambidextrous and lighter weight, I decided to give it a try. I didn't think I was missing that much before when using my MX510. But I have to say I'm sold. I don't see myself going back to Logitech anytime soon, if ever.

I could say a bunch of cliche things about the accuracy and precision, but I won't. If you get this mouse, you won't be disappointed... you'll be amazed.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, lightweight, on the fly CPI switching, multiple profiles, and ambidextrous design.

Cons: 2 Major problems with this mouse. The first and foremost, was the one that happens right out of the box. The scroll wheel. When trying to scroll up, sometimes the mouse will not register it as scrolling up. Wiggling the wheel slightly would get it to register, but simply scrolling the wheel up would not always count. I have read many places that this is a manufacturing fault.

The other issue (which is not limited to this brand of mouse, but has been appearing in other steelseries mice too) is after so long the left mouse button gave out. It was my primary reason for buying a new mouse, because the mouse would register one click as up to three, or not register anything at all.

Other Thoughts: For the $80 I paid for this mouse, I expected a lot more out of it than just over a year of not even strenuous use. At least by gaming mice terms. Overall the mouse was very good, and once you learn how to use the wheel just right so it doesnt skip around, it becomes mostly useable. But the issue with it just breaking down completely was kind of a disappointment. A mouse that is supported by professional gamers, and marketed as such should have lasted a bit longer than one year, especially with a >$70 price tag.

The reason Im giving it a full 4, is because like I said, it is a great mouse when it worked. If you are lucky enough to get one without the twitchy scroll wheel you will have a really good mouse while it lasts.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality Mouse

Pros: Smooth. Customizable. Ambidextrous. I used a ten dollar Logitech mouse for 10 years, so this a huge step up.

Cons: It's too bad there isn't another button on the top of the mouse. You can accidentally click the side buttons on the right side if you're right handed (or the left side if you're left handed).

The mouse freaked out once, and by freaking out, I mean the scroll wheel or something was "virtually jammed" (not physically), so I had to plug the mouse into a different computer and reset it to its factory defaults. This fixed the problem.

Why did this problem occur? I'm not too sure. It's possible I installed something that conflicted with the mouse's driver. Again, it only happened once, and it was easily fixed.

Other Thoughts: I noticed an improvement in my gaming. I use this mouse with its recommend surface the 4HD.

If you are looking for a ambidextrous mouse, I don't think you can do much better than this.
