SteelSeries Kana Counterstrike Global Offensive Edition Review
6 November 2012
Summary: The latest Kana mouse from SteelSeries is CounterStrike: Global Offensive themed, offers CPI values from 400 to 3200, two extra programmable buttons on the sides and for the mouse to become fully configurable we need to access the free download of the SteelSeries Engine from their website.
Conclusion: Since for the past year or so I’ve been using the Sensei Pro Grade Gaming Mouse with my primary system and the Roccat Kone[+] with my secondary one (two quite more expensive units) i can't really avoid comparing them with the KANA Black. So the KANA Black is not as fast and not as accurate all together but it features a better grip than both and it does offer a nice balance between speed and accuracy (I was also glad to see that the primary buttons are quite hard to...
Conclusion: In conclusion, I like this mouse. It’s very well built, accurate, comfortable and comes with some nifty software. It sits perfectly between it’s bigger and smaller brothers, it’s even a rather nice piece of eye-candy. All of the problems I had with the Kana were down to personal preference in mouse setup and design and if you’re in the market for a good gaming mouse in this price bracket, you won’t be disappointed if you were choose this little beast as your new desk...
Pros: Accurate, Comfortable, Well designed and durable, Nice software
Cons: Only two DPI profiles active at a time, Some users may not like the side button layout
Excerpt: According to SteelSeries, the design ethos behind its Kana mouse is epitomised by its name. 'Kana' means a number of different things in different languages, from 'blood' in Azerbaijan to 'Demigod' in Hawaiian, via 'canary' in Swedish.
Excerpt: It seems like every month that we are looking at a gaming peripheral from a company targeting the gaming sector. Even though some of these companies have created very impressive products like the new Corsair Vengeance range, many gamers will opt for a tried and tested brand instead, such as SteelSeries.
Excerpt: Taking a step up from the Kinzu the SteelSeries Kana is the middle-ground of SteelSeries gaming mice, representing the balance of price and features that will suit most gamers. Dubbed “The Middle Child” by SteelSeries themselves, the Kana is positioned in between the Sensei and Kinzu in both physical size and features.
Conclusion: Mit der Kana stellte der dänische Hersteller SteelSeries eine Maus vor, die durchaus als starke, kleine Schwester des Flaggschiffs aus eben diesem Hause in Form der Sensei bezeichnet werden kann. Sie bietet ein kontrastreiches Design, sowie eine Formgebung, die sowohl für Links- als auch für Rechtshänder gleichermaßen geeignet ist.
