Showing 1-5 of 5
Possibly plauged by manufacturing defects.

Summary: I loved this mouse when I first got it. Like pretty much all of Steel Series' gear, it's minimalist in design compared to other gaming companies like Razer, in that it's not equipped with flashing LEDs or anything like that, which is why I tend to like Steel Series products. I absolutely love the form factor of this mouse, it fits great in my hand and doesn't cause any discomfort for hours on end.
Summary: The Steelseries is a good gaming mouse no doubt, but not everyone gets so lucky. The Kinzu I received wasn't working properly. Whenever I would left click one time it would serve as a double click which would deeply affect my gameplay and sometimes cause me to loose games (and make me look like a noob, lol). Anyways I have sent my Kinzu back to get another one that should not have this same problem.
Summary: Looks very much like a standard mouse. At around $30 it is a budget gaming mouse, as for performance; very low and unjust for a gaming mouse. Being as I purchased it as a backup to a G9x, I was not expecting it to be as good, however I did expect to have better software included (which by the way is none). To the ratings: Functionality: It works Software: Not included, and must be downloaded, not ideal for low end internet/ offline gamers.
Summary: This mouse was nice, but it wasn't what I imagined it would be so I had to return it. Like past reviews have stated, this mouse is surprisingly petite. Considering mouse sizes, the Logitech G500 and similar models are considered pretty big, the standard Microsoft Optical Wheel mice are, well, standard--they fit most people's hands fairly well. This mouse however, can be considered bigger than those bluetooth notebook mice, and smaller than the Microsoft one.
