Arie — A while ago I had to help out a friend with no money, no job and a ton of student debt (hi Joseph!) who broke his mouse. I sent him a Steelseries Xai, the same mouse he managed to break. With this new mouse he won…a Steelseries Xai. A couple of weeks later this mouse was delivered to me, and here’s my review of it. This mouse has been on the market for about 2 years now, but I had no intention of getting one before, so please excuse this rather late review.


The last few years Steelseries has emerged as a ‘big’ manufacturer of gaming peripherals, offering mice, keyboards, headsets and mousepads. Like any other manufacturer of gaming-related peripherals they offer some great products and some totally crap ones. After the review you’ll know in which category I judge the Xai to be.
