SteelSeries Xai and Kinzu

SteelSeries opted for the end of the week to reveal two multi-platform gaming mice as well as a special mousepad. At the top end, the Xai has an ambidextrous ergonomic grip the company claims took years of research to develop and an especially precise laser sensor that registers up to 5,000 CPI (counts per inch). It also has a unique OS-independent programmable seven-button scheme with an LCD on the underside and its own permanent memory to save custom settings without needing drivers.

The Kinzu is an optical, slightly smaller sibling to the Xai and tracks less quickly at 3,200 CPI. It retains the same button count and LCD as the larger mouse.

Both mice support both Mac OS X as well as Windows PCs and should ship in August, with official prices set at $35 for the Kinzu and $80 for the Xai.

The 9HD is SteelSeries' pad entry and uses a densely textured plastic surface to provide both a stable environment and ideal tracking for laser mice. It too arrives in August for $35.
