Summary: worked great, saw a lot of play during MoP and was pretty fantastic as far as mouses go, but the cord is way to long, and I found it anyoning at times. again not to happy with how long it lasted, probably about 6 months if that.
If you're going to buy this mouse, get the silver one

Summary: I went through 4 of these mice (yeah, four) because I liked the shape so much. 1st: Silver one with unbalanced feet. 2nd: Black one with a terrible left click. Left click felt like it was clicking down two notches per one click if you clicked on the button too far to the middle of the mouse. 3rd: Black one, same exact clicking problem as second one! 4th: Silver one again, no problems so far. Keeping this one unless it starts developing problems as well.
Summary: The mouse is good physically, but the software is not great. I had issues with it not seeing buttons on Windows and similar. On my Mac, I used a 3rd party app called 'USB Overdrive' to handle most issues.
Summary: Length:: 5:17 Mins The video shows me comparing the SteelSeries Kinzu v2 mouse against another gaming mouse (a Logitech G5 ). In the video I cover the bullet points Kinzu lists for the mouse features, and compare them to the Logitech mouse. Final results: the Logitech had every single one of them, and then had more features (more buttons, visible DPI indicator, customizable weight carriage, etc..
A solid but somewhat lacking entry level gaming mouse

Summary: Being a very avid gaming household we tend to buy and cycle through a lot of different mice and we're always on the lookout to try something new. I prefer more simplistic mice where as my other half wants more buttons than you can shake a stick at. So when I saw this mouse I thought it would be the perfect item for me to choose and review.
Summary: Well I am a gamer, and the latest mice I use include the Razer Diamondback and right not the Logitech G500. This might leave others wondering why I would be interested in this product at all. Well a couple of reasons. One is a i have multiple computers that I infrequently switch out the mice. The other is I've seen the SteelSeries brand around later, and I am kind of curious what they have to offer. Let's talk about size. Now the Razer mice tend to be slim and sleek.
Nice mouse but the SteelSeries Engine software won't recognize it

Summary: The SteelSeries Kinzu 2 Pro Edition Optical Gaming Mouse is a minimalist mouse for gamers who use a claw grip. It floats on my desk like it's oiled, making my other mice seem like they have sandpaper on the bottom. Both the wheel and the optical sensor are very precise. I even like the way my fingers slide on the glossy surface vs. the normal matte finish found on most mice. It has a braided cord and a button to switch between 2 CPI settings and no bothersome LEDs.
Summary: While the technical specifications are impressive for the price range of this mouse, it's strong suit lies in the software that you download from SteelSeries. It's VERY accurate with movements and the sensor is top tier. The switchable profiles are nice, as well as profiles that are activate-able when specific applications are running. I wish you could have more than two profiles on the middle button. It glides really nicely across my hard and soft mousepads.
Excerpt: В целом это обычная мышь, за такую цену могли бы и подцветку хоть какую нибудь сделать, но если вам не нужны навороты , то это ваш вариант. Для меня не хвататет какого то дизайна.
Pros: Хорошо лежит в руке, по ковру ходит идеально, нажатия не затруднительны , колесо в полне нормальное прокручивается без усилий(конечно если у вас слабые пальцы, то вам будет не удобно).
Cons: Цена сильно завышена я покупал мышь за 2000 тысячи, рука сильно потеет, глянцевое покрытие постоянно в разводах от пальцев, вам всегда придется протирать мышь даже несколько раз в день(если конечно вас не раздражают отпечатки на кнопках).
