One day after receiving the mouse
14 March 2014
Summary: Very impressed. The reason I got this mouse was because it is so light in comparison to other gaming mice - 77g vs my really heavy ~150g Logitech G500. I realized that lighter mice let me control my aim better and respond quicker. The first thing I noticed when I got the Kinzu was how small it was - way smaller than I expected. However, with claw and finger grip even for my large hands it fit very nicely.
Summary: I liked it but the only part that disappointed me was the image looked like the mouse wasn't glossy, but it was. Which was 78.36% of the reason why I bought it. The DPI switch is nice but unused seeing as I don't need to instantly move my mouse from one screen to another.
Summary: Excellent Mouse. Fantastic price. Very precise, very good build quality, long life expectancy in this gem. I've since replaced it with a much more expensive mouse, and while yes I did replace it I literally felt bad because it has served me so well. I'm an avid CS:GO player, but recently began playing an MMO and wanted side buttons so shelled for a more expensive mouse.
Summary: Was looking forward to the extra button in the middle, but it turned out it wasn't actually usable as a button and just turned the speed of the mouse between high and low. But that's the end of my disappointment with this mouse. It moves nicely The scroll wheel is perfect with nice feedback The mouse is almost perfect in size This review was modfied by poster @ 10-10-13 09:36 PM
Pros: Comfortable, good precision, very well designed
Summary: The mouse fits snugly into my hand that's slightly smaller than average. The bottom is very slick, practically frictionless, so there's less strain and fatigue from motion. It's also very responsive and fast, ideal for gaming.
Summary: As a gamer, I've used my share of gaming mice over the years. I was intrigued by the Kinzu V2 Pro because it's pretty much a basic mouse. It doesn't have a dozen macro buttons like my other mice, but after using it, I really like it a lot. It just has a great feel to it. It has a lower profile than my current Logitech mouse that makes it more comfortable to use for long sessions.
Summary: The mouse that I've been using is a $100 Logitech gaming mouse. I would say that this mouse is right on par with that, and it is far less than half the price! I am anti-battery, so I love the fact that this is a wired mouse (there are too many unnecessary wireless products these days). The scroll wheel moves very smoothly, and the mouse glides around my table with ease without a mouse pad!
Summary: I am not a gamer, but I am a programmer. I rely on a good computer mouse and keyboard to make my living. So when I got the opportunity to get this mouse, I jumped on it. I do have a SteelSeries keyboard for the clickiness, like old IBM keyboards. Anyway, this is a very comfortable mouse. It seems a bit lower than I am used to (meaning it doesn't arch my hand as much; my palm is flatter and closer to the desk). I have a wireless Microsoft Mouse as my daily driver.
Summary: Despite the photo this is a glossy black; however, I would hesitate in calling it completely glossy, which is nice as it doesn't show fingerprints, etc. This is a great, simple desktop mouse. I haven't had any problems with it, and it is much nicer to use than my old generic Microsoft laser mouse it replaces. Being able to switch the samples per inch setting with the quick push of a button has proved far more useful than I could have ever imagined.
Pros: Works great, feels great, looks great, good features and no bloat.
