  1. questionIs the SteelSeries Xai Mac OS X compatible? If not, will there be downloadable software?
    At the moment we have no plans for Mac OS X software. But SteelSeries Xai can be fully configured via the LCD menu system on the back of the mouse, which will be a great way for Mac OS X users to enjoy the advanced tracking capabilities of the mouse.
  2. questionI'm experiencing issues with the software/firmware on my Xai. Is there a way for me to reset the mouse?
    You can reset the mouse to default settings with the following steps: (1) Turn it over, hold down the CPI button for about 3 seconds, and then let go of the CPI button. (2) If it gets into the menu then scroll down to 'Load Defaults', use the wheel button to scroll to yes and select the option b ...
  3. questionWhen using my Xai, the cursor is moving erradically and does not respond smoothly. What can I do?
    The Xai sensor is state of the art technology and extremely sensitive. This is good for clean gamers, but bad for gamers who have dirty and dusty mouse pads. Please make sure that your mouse surface is clean and that the sensor on the Xai is free of dirty and dust. We recommend that you clean ...
  4. questionHow do I make sure that my Xai is fully up to date?
    We have tweaked our software to allow the SteelSeries Xai to function at the highest level of any mouse. We ask that you download and apply the 1.4.2 drivers in order to experience the Xai at its finest. Please follow these steps: 1. Download the newest Xai software from www.steelseries.com/do ...
  5. questionThe CPI on my Xai feels different that how I configured it. One day it work and the next it changed. What can I do?
    First, make sure that you've toggled the CPI button (i.e. press it at least twice) to cycle the CPI settings. If the mouse is unplugged or a software update is applied, then the CPI might need to be reset. Toggling the CPI button will cause the mouse to read the information off of your profile ...
  6. questionWhat is Automatic lift distance calibration?
    Different surfaces result in different lift distance of the mouse. Imagine a user who switches between a cloth mousepad at home and a wooden desk at the office – the two types of material are not equally reflective, which results in the lift distance of any mouse being different on the two ...
  7. questionWhat types of PC games are the SteelSeries Xai and SteelSeries Kinzu mice best used for?
    The shape of both mice makes them ideal for all of the 3 grip styles used by professional gamers (claw/fingertip, swipe, and palm). The macro capabilities of the SteelSeries Xai, along with the number of buttons and exceptional precision, make it ideal for all game types. The SteelSeries Kinzu ...
  8. questionCounts Per Inch? CPI? I haven't come across these expressions before, except for DPI (Dots Per Inch)?
    DPI is an expression from the printing world and has nothing to do with mouse movement. DPI is meant to describe that for one inch of distance you move your mouse on any surface, the equivalent number of counts are sent to the PC - resulting in movement on your screen. CPI is the correct term fo ...
  9. questionWhat is the difference between the Kinzu and the Xai?
    Compared to Xai Laser, the Kinzu has way less options when it comes to customization, programmability and configuration, however the Kinzu is in a league of its own when it comes to reliability and stability. The two mice have two very different price tags, naturally making the list of differenc ...
  10. questionWhat is the average sensor megapixel per second in the SteelSeries Xai compared to current generation gaming mice?
    Current generation mice have an average sensor rate of between 3 to 6 megapixels/second. The Xai clocks in at a whooping 10.8 megapixels/second. That is clearly a significant difference for gamers that need to make decisions within fractions of a second.
  11. questionWhy would a player choose the SteelSeries Xai over the SteelSeries Ikari?
    Either because he/she prefers the shape, or because they want next-generation technology. The Ikari is a great mouse, one of the highest rated gaming mice in the world, and offered a new take on mouse and mouse shapes when it was released in late 2007. Since then we have been hard at work develo ...
