Drivers and Conclusion
Drivers & LCD Screen:
The LCD Screen on the bottom of this mouse is an amazing idea, very useful for when in a game or if you’d rather not have to get the driver up.
The resolution of the screen on the bottom is very good, allowing text to be easily readable and the menus to be navigated with ease. The thing that let this system down the most is the names that SteelSeries give certain things. Such as, SteelSeries FreeMove, SteelSeries ExactAim, SteelSeries ExactRate and SteelSeries ExactSense, all 4 of these things are very difficult to work out what they actually are, especially when the mouse doesn’t come with a manual and expects you to find out all the meanings on its website.
The drivers give a better picture of what these things mean, but it’s still difficult to work. You get a lot of features to change in here though, and all the buttons can be reassigned to do what you want them to, even the normal click buttons can be reassigned.
The drivers also allow a huge amount of settings to be adjusted to the finest detail, allowing you to set up your mouse to your exact specification.
The Xai is an excellent mouse, and definitely one worth your money. It performs well in all areas, looks very modest, and is extremely comfortable. The price, at around £60, may be out of reach of some gamers, but I feel the extra outlay is definitely worth it considering how much mouse you're actually getting. SteelSeries, well done, this is a brilliant mouse.
· Looks brilliant
· Performs well
· Ambidextrous shape
· SteelSeries’ way of naming features is confusing.
