    Very nice review, thanks. I am looking for a Left Handed Mouse, and this may be the one for me. This should also match my SteelSeries 5Hv2 8-CH gaming headset.

    Just want to confirm this will do for Left Handed?

    SuperXP it is totally symmetrical and therefore equally good for both left and right handed people!

    Cheers,

    And which sensor has 5700 DPi?

    Well, thats that "issue" cause there isnt one.

    Avago 9500, widely used and its like 99% probability one in Sensei (aswell as in Xai), has native 5040 DPi (or CPi as SteelSeries likes it). Phillips Twin-eye has 5600 DPi. Mostly used in Razer mices and some special things, like R.A.T. mouse.

    So most likely, this mouse has as Xai, just native around 5000 DPi.. everything else is just interpolation. Unless one believes SteelSeries to tell the truth. :D

    Its similar to truth from Logitech and their G9x or G500 to have 5700 DPi from 5040 DPi sensor..

    The Avago ADNS-A9500 with custom firmware will deliver 5700 DPI, according to Avago.

    Just picked this mouse up yesterday on sale. It's superb. Seems as if they fixed the Steelseries Engine software with it as well. Granted I don't leave it running but I use it to configure the onboard profiles. Very happy with it so far. :)
