Below is the newly released Steelseries Xai Laser mouse. I just received it from the guys at vVv and all the products are greatly appreciated as I use mostly steelseries product anyways. Except for the mouse I have always used a mx510 or 518 mouse. I have tried out other mice such as almost every razer mouse. But nothing fit my hand like the 518 and that's my biggest issue when it comes to a mouse: it has to feel comfortable.

Posted Image

The Xai mouse comes through with a perfect balance of everything its a great mix between a razer and a 518 and there are no crazy grooves you have to worry about its a very simple mouse, not too light not too heavy its very smooth especially on my Steelseries QcK+ mousepad. Everything is so smooth and perfectly balanced on this mouse I plugged it in adjusted my sensitivity and started playing within a few minutes. Feels like you have pinpoint control with extreme comfort for your hand. I really recommend you give this mouse a try its really a great mouse. If you're like me and love the mx518 or G5 but want a lighter and smoother feeling mouse you should get the Xai.

Also for those who like to be more precise with their sensitivities in and out of game. Above is a screenshot of the steelseries drivers and configuration menu. It has so many options from dpi settings in game and out of game and button control for specific buttons on the mouse. Another cool thing is when its plugged in I believe the mouse will download the latest drivers from the steelseries website as soon as you open up your drivers.

I dont do much PC gaming, but I'm sure that this a an awesome mouse for those who do.


Dont agree with the above post? Don't bother flaming, I'll more than likely agree somewhat with your opinion. I'm pretty open minded.

I should defiantly request this to a close friend of mine who is indeed a PC Gamer. Great Review :)

I'm not in competition with anybody but myself. My goal is to beat my last performance.

The past can hurt, but the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

True. Looks sick. If I was a Starcraft player or a PC gamer, Id buy it just because it looks sick.

Huge PC gamer here; i'd rather lightweight mouses but not having a ton of buttons is weird for me. I hope one of mybuddies get it so I can try it out soon. If not i'll just have to wait a little for the price to drop a little before I buy it.
