SteelSeries Kinzu Optical Gaming Mouse

techPowerUp!
18 January 2010
  • Summary: This mouse should definitely be on your short list if you are a FPS gamer looking for a budget mouse. Since this mouse has a wealthy resolution of up to 3200 DPI and excellent scaling downwards, it can both be the high and low sensitivity gamer's weapon. Unlike the elderly 3200 DPI laser sensors the optical sensor employed by the Kinzu is able to be adjusted down to a mere 400 DPI and still yield excellent performance.
  • Pros: Performance, Value for money, Great looking, Low weight, Ability to hold three profiles, Ergonomic design, Short travel buttons
  • Cons: No side buttons, No profile indicator

Benchmark Reviews

  • Conclusion: If there exists a mouse that does everything, but only mediocre at each, then its direct opposite would be the SteelSeries Kinzu. The Kinzu only does so much being a basic gaming mouse, but it performs very well in everything it does do. The foundation for the mouse, including CPI, response time, and processing power, are all high end. The Kinzu's 1ms response time is as fast as gaming mice gets.
  • Pros: Very low price for a gaming mouse of this quality, Configurator very simple to use, On-the-fly profile toggle placed well, Surface coating offers excellent grip and comfort, Ambidextrous, Configurations stored on mouse
  • Cons: Limited functionality for a gaming mouse, Looks a little plain

Kurztest: Steelseries Kinzu Optical Mouse

Hardwareluxx
10 January 2010
  • Summary: Durch die fehlenden Features ist es Steelseries gelungen, ein überaus günstiges Produkt auf den Markt zu bringen, das eine solide Performance vorweisen kann. Sowohl für Links- als auch Rechtshänder geeignet, ist die Maus vor allem für den Gelegenheitsspieler eine interessante Investition.
  • Pros: beidhändige Nutzung, geringes Gewicht (75 Gramm)
  • Cons: fehlende Features (für eine Gamer-Maus), optischer Sensor
