I am pretty positive that during my discussion with SteelSeries at CES I actually had this mouse in my hands as most of the "wow's" and "where the rest of the mouse" comments derived. Now, I am a guy that I think has larger hands, and I have been told I even have sausage fingers. So for the junior model of the three piece series to fit in my hand so well, I was surprised to say the least. Since we are stepping down the overall size from the Kana we just looked at, I have a bit of bad news, more of the buttons are gone as well. What you are left with is the most basic of devices to run through the environment with as little confusion as possible, while still delivering top level performance even the most recognized gamer would like to have in their hands.
Keeping the family familiarity, a lot about this latest submission will remind you very much of the Kana Black V1.1, but there is enough other than the size to set it apart. I already covered that this contender drops a few of the buttons found on the Kana, but keeps the Pixart sensor and works with Omron switches this time and this is what helps set it apart from its original version.
The IPS of the this mouse has been lowered as well to 65 inches per second from the 130 of the Kana, but it is still more than plenty of tracking for even the fastest spins. The most beneficial part of the SteelSeries selections that I find is that this mouse is even lighter then the Kana, making it even more unnoticed in your hand as it just functions effortlessly.
The gaming mouse we are about to get in depth with today is the Kinzu V2, but this time it is the Pro Edition and is themed as a Special Black Edition as well. SteelSeries already did a job on impressing me with my use of the Kana Black V1.1 and my hopes are high that the Kinzu is exactly what I think it is, a smaller version of the Kana with less buttons, gets turned down a bit and sells at a lower price point.
If this mouse is 90% as much fun to use as the Kana is, I can see this selling very well. For those who need the best for the FPS head shots, or the programmability of multiple Macros for your favorite MMO, without all that flash and over complicated designs, keep reading, I think SteelSeries did it again with the Kinzu V2 Pro Edition gaming mouse.
