    Didn't fancy the DeathAdder so went with the Xai as it seems to be the best compromise for now. Looks reasonably comfortable and supposedly built like a tank.

    The reason I'm getting shot of the IME 3.0 is because the scroll wheel is dead and its looking a bit rough now.

    The Xai isn't a decent performing mouse?

    No mention of a trackball yet? These are sweet mice for gaming. I'm using the Logitech "Wireless Trackball M570", the successor to the "Wireless Trackman Marble Wheel" which includes longer battery life (from several weeks to a few months per battery), and two extra buttons.

    The XAi is a decent mouse, lol I own one myself(the white one). :p The build quality is really second to none.

    But the three mice I've mentioned above performs better sensor wise. The XAi has an inconsistent acceleration(5-10%) which is inherent on cloth pads. However, the shape is just perfect for me(palm/claw), it's just the perfect shape. Not too big like the DA, and not too small like the Kinzu.

    But the fact that the sensor is bugged, is one of the main drawbacks of the mouse. The CPI is also inconsistent to a certain extent, if there's dust on the sensor and it's very picky if the lens get dusty. Other than that it's a solid performing mouse. The XAi also has a problem with UEFI boards taking a long time too boot. I also had the same problem with my GD80, which was later fixed with an update from MSI.

    The successor to the XAi is somewhat bug free in terms of the CPI/and it's more stable than it's younger brother on cloth pads. :) Though I highly recommend the Zowie AM, it's very similar to the XAi/Sensei in terms of shape, and performs better(sensor) as it's an optical.

    I have a few computers and mice...

    XAI (love it. favorite mouse so far. only thing I'd do to it is shrink it down to the kinzu size.)

    G700 (meh'. clunky, obtuse. built for an ogre with a death grip. tapers the wrong way and wants to slide out of your hand when you lift (hence the death grip).)

    razer diamondback (love the size, light weight, wish it was higher rez)

    razer copperhead (love the shape, a bit clunky/large, wish it tracked better during 'flick turns'. by far the most ergonomic mouse for someone that lifts+replaces a lot.)

    g500 (thoroughly average. nothing to hate, nothing to rave about.)

    Im still rocking an IME 3.0, ive had to open it up a couple of times and clean the crap out cos the wheel was sticking, but apart from that its still going strong after 12 years! Few places still sell it on Ebay.

    I have been using it for two years. Even though people say that gaming mouse should not be wireless but Mamba is very good. I have no lag whatsoever.
