Summary: I was just getting back into gaming and needed a recommendation on a good mouse. A seasoned gamer friend of mine recommended this as a starting point and it just happened to be on sale. I was considering something much more expensive, but wasn't sure which direction to go. His advice, "Try the Kinzu and decide what you do and don't like about it.
Summary: The mouse is very light. This is a great entry-level gaming mouse. It features only the bare minimum required to play in an FPS: Left, wheel, and right buttons. Nothing more, nothing less. This mouse was very comfortable to use even though it was ambidestrious. I feel it could have been a bit bigger and I have small hands. The tracking for this mouse is reliable.
Summary: for $20 it's a fantastic deal, i'm not sure about $50. it's a bit light but i got used to it quickly. the glossy finish gets greasy and dirty very quickly and is not the white that it appears in the picture. its more like the silver of the sansei.
Summary: Nice price for a basic mouse. $19.99 on sale. Tracks well cord is nice. Plug and play so very nice bought it for work since they weren't willing to replace the one I had at my desk. $20 bucks for a more comfortable mouse I use 7hrs a day more then worth the money.
Summary: SteelSeries makes quality mouses this one is no different. The scroll wheel is smooth and the mouse glides smoothly. It seems well constructed and more expensive than it actually is, infact I preferr it to some of our other more costly gaming mouses it looks very sleek and is ready to go out of the box.
Summary: This optical gaming mouse works out of the box with Windows XP and Windows 7. The mouse surfaces all have a nice smooth finish that isn't too slippery. The movement is smooth and the default is set at a very usable dpi. The scroll wheel has non audible clicks as you roll it, but does not free wheel if you spin it hard (my preference). It has worked on all surfaces that I have tried: wood, white laminate table.
Good sensor and switches, but light, small, and lacking some standard features

Summary: I've used all kinds of mice over the years. For gaming, I've settled in on a Logitech G500 Programmable Gaming Mouse (and also have used their wireless Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, Black (910-002864) ). This is the first SteelSeries mouse I've used. I was familiar with the brand because I use one of their excellent mousepads, a SteelSeries 4HD Professional Gaming Mouse Pad (Black) (which I highly recommend, by the way).
Summary: I really like everything about the kinzu mouse. It definitely gets the job done to say the least. The top part of the mouse gets dirty though. Any kind of oil (from the skin) sweat or anything like that will stick to it so I clean it off once a day. Not a huge deal but still a bit of a pain and kind of gross.
