In a sea of shiny plastic for the palm of your hand to rest upon, the white SteelSeries logo jumps right out at you. This is a bit smaller than the Kaza we just looked at, but not by that much. It is more about what the Kinzu V2 Pro Edition doesn't have.

The right side of the mouse is contoured to fit the ring and pinky finger here, or if you are a lefty, this is also where your thumb would go. It is rubberized and does offer a good "feel" when gripping the Kinzu in your hand.

Up front you get the basics, plus a CPI, on the fly, switch behind the scroll wheel. On both sides of this matte finished plastic is the right and left click buttons backed with Omron switches. There we just covered 75% of the layout!

The left side of the Kinzu V2 Pro Edition is a mirror image of the opposite side and this is due to the ambidextrous design that SteelSeries offers in these mice.

Under the Kinzu, it gets supported and glides easily on the three large PTFE feet applied to the toe and heel of the mouse. Under the sticker you will find the same Pixart optical sensor that was used in the Kana.

Simplicity is the key with the Kinzu V2 Pro Edition mouse. When the unit is plugged into the USB port, the only way you know it is working is to lift it and look for the bright red glow of the Pixart sensor.
