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...
Excerpt: During one of my busiest days at CES I had a meeting to make, that I was very late for, with SteelSeries. As I got to the hotel I realized that I didn't even have a room number or a telephone number to make contact with them once I made it to the lobby. Out came the phone and I made a call to Chris and Cameron who sent off an email informing them that I was waiting in their lobby.
Excerpt: Earlier this week we reviewed the SteelSeries Kinzu V2 Pro Edition. That mouse was aimed at those who want a decent gaming mouse with good build quality but basic functions so that the cost is kept down. SteelSeries also offer some great high end mice such as the Sensei which cater for another group of consumers and then somewhere in-between there are those that want something a little more than the Kinzu offers but without the high price of the enthusiast mice.
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: A Pro mouse with a sweet price tag Steelseries Kana (and a little bit about the Kinzu Pro v 2) The humble mouse. In this day and age where researchers are looking at replacing human interaction with computers with everything from motion to brainwaves, the humble mouse is still the preferred input device for PC games. They come in many shapes and sizes, some have lasers (Dr Evil voice), some use optical sensors. Today I come here to discuss the Steelseries Kana.
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: 4 Flares 4 Flares × 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: Kommen wir zum Abschluss unseres kleinen Testes über die kleine Maus. Die Kana von Steelseries hat durchaus ihre Vorzüge. Das liegt an dem durchdachten Konzept der Maus mit der Unterstützung von beiden Bedienseiten, wie auch an der Erfahrung des Herstellers. Vorzüge, die nicht von der Hand zu weisen sind u.a ganz klar die Bedienbarkeit auch von Linkshändern, der Treiber, der gute Sensor und auch die Größe.
