Summary: the buttons worked for a really long time but your money is best spent elsewhere if you want a "GAMING" mouse. note that sensor doesn't actually matter as there are no fps games worth playing where you actually need accurate aiming anymore and this works just fine for dota2, but it's still lame that it's marketed as a gaming mouse when it's absolutely not
Summary: I ordered this mouse for one reason, because I wanted the "Kinzu Optical Mouse" and those mice are not available on the steelseries site. The only ones on the steelseries site are the new kinzu v2 which have a bogus sensor. When this mouse finally arrived (4 days late) I opened to box to find a kinzu v2.... [...] Notice the picture and wording of the regular kinzu is the exact wording and picture this product page shows. So why did they send me a kinzu v2???
Summary: Now I have to say, I have used a steel series Kinzu mouse for the past two years and have enjoyed using this mouse during that duration, but I have to explain why after all of this time, I have decided to give this mouse a rating of 2 First off, the pros: The mouse is very responsive, and very comfortable. The texture on the mouse itself feels good to the hands and overall it has a great feel.
Summary: I was excited to get a gaming mouse, but was extremely disappointed with the Steelseries Kinzu. It felt like a cheap plastic mouse that you would find in the 5 dollar value bin at Walmart. I really wanted to like this mouse too.
Summary: Love the quality and appearance but hate that after a month it double clicks instead of single clicking which is VERY annoying in SC2. 2 stars because of quality and appearance. if i could rate less i would.
Summary: Looking for a great gaming mouse for a low price. Look no further than the SteelSeries Kinzu. This mouse is amazing for the price and feels great in your hand. I would still be using it today if I didn't upgrade to the SteelSeries Sensei.
Summary: SteelSeries is well SteelSeries. Lower prediction and acceleration then my Sensei, I'd guess due to it using an optical vs as laser sensor. Tracks well, pretty small for a mouse which is fine by me. It does have a nice "lip" on it so if you hold it with your pinky and thumb like I do it does have a pretty good grip to it. Software is simple and easy, probably the least complicated I've ever seen.
Summary: I got this mouse in October and I loved it but unfortunately, it stopped working. I have Deathadder that I can use but I didn't like that mouse as it hurt my hand after playing for about 2 hours. I will be getting another Kinzu or I might get a Xai or the Sensei.
