Excellent Entry Mouse

Andy S., Newegg
24 October 2014
  • Summary: I consider this a very good entry point for those getting into PC gaming. The mouse is very good quality and quite responsive. The software seems easy to use and should not be too off putting for most people. The CPI switch does work even without the software.
  • Pros: Very low price point compared to most gaming mice, I found it for $20 CAD. Does not light up which I consider a Pro since my PC is in my bedroom. Very high quality braided cable. Mouse feels well built and very responsive.
  • Cons: Shape is just a simple generic arched mouse. Does not feel like much thought went into ergonomics. Slightly uncomfortable in my large hands. Would have liked a higher arch and wider base. Only the 3 main mouse buttons are available (Left/Right click, scroll wheel)

Got big hands?

Aaron H., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Pictures don't do it justice. It's really an attractive piece.
  • Pros: The size of the mouse seems perfect for people with bigger hands. I picked this up for a friend's build and he loves it. In perspective he's coming to it from a basic Dell-provided mouse from his last computer so he may be a bit biased just having a quality mouse for a change.
  • Cons: I don't see any. We built a new rig in an orange case so the orange mouse just seemed a perfect aesthetic touch to add. 4 eggs instead of 5 because there's nothing particularly outstanding in and of itself. For the price of it for myself I might prefer fwd/back navigation buttons.

Value for economy users.

Peter C., Newegg
22 November 2013
  • Summary: i'm on my third mouse in roughly 1 1/2 years of moderate abuse. While certainly not the best mouse out there, it can be bought relatively cheaply and I've grown used to their feel.
  • Pros: Basic 3-button mouse with chiseled wheel/button. Fast-switch button for changing dpi on the fly. Configurable driver download from steelseries website. Light-weight, smooth transition Stitched cable for reduced snag and more resistant to damage. Ambidextrous design. Can be purchased relatively ch...
  • Cons: A mouse suited for basic use or light gaming needs, these are neither durable nor decked out with additional configurable buttons.

Best mouse i've had

Saladdin P., Newegg
9 November 2013
  • Pros: Very basic, 3 buttons and it's so smooth. There is also a driver you can download off of their website which changes DPI. You can switch any time. I've had few mouses but this fits my hand perfect and it's really light.
  • Cons: non

Best Optical mouse

Taylor E., Newegg
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Steel series gear has always delivered performance.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Very responsive mouse. Probably the best one i have ever used. Good price point.
  • Cons: Sometimes when you move to fast or lift up the mouse the senor gets all buggy for a second. But it doesn't happen often so , its not a big deal.

Kinzu v2 SteelSeries

James R., Newegg
26 August 2013
  • Summary: for half the price of a roccat. you are getting a lot of quality. i loved my first kinzu2 so much, that i decided to get 2. now i use my orange kinzu for my workstation and my yellow 29.99 steelseries for my lappy.
  • Pros: I was doing techy research into the new roccat kone series. although, they seemed nice with 8200dpi, i didnt feel like i needed that for the $82.99. thats not far from being a 100 dollar mouse. i looked into the steelseries by kinzu and came across this pretty little number. they ran out of the y...
  • Cons: with the exception of it not having a moderate under the zipper or behind the steelseries logo, led for visual flare and vampire-like surrounding, to be able to find it.... i found absolutely no cons or hick-ups. for that effective price range.

Precise

J.C. Y., Newegg
1 August 2013
  • Summary: Other thoughts. I really could use another button for "back." I wish it had an LED or something to indicate that the PC is on. Really not a big deal, but I guess I'm used to Razers. It's a very basic mouse that works excellent. It's not feature packed, nor is it incredibly clever.
  • Pros: The best thing about this mouse is the senor. It is very steady and stable. The mouse is very light and ergonomic. It isn’t a big mouse, but it isn’t small either. For a medium sized hand, it works great. I bought this mouse for mostly Photoshop and Illustrator, and it handles both just fine. I d...
  • Cons: The software isn't included. You don't need the software to use all its features, but it's strange it wasn't included.

Light and comfortable

DANIEL P., Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Summary: The driver installation software (which comes with not only Kinzu v2 firmwares but a load of others from SteelSeries,) can update your firmware. The configuration software gives you 2 modes of adjustable dpi which you can toggle by pressing the triangle button in the middle. I recommend this mouse.
  • Pros: - Light weight means lifting up the mouse when gaming won't strain your joints - Pretty stylish. The logo is nice and the two-tone color scheme works well - The black part is not the soft rubber you find on Logitech mice which will become stained with germs. It feels like 90% plastic 10% rubber a...
  • Cons: I can't really think of a con except you may prefer wireless. I prefer wired because it's not that bad once you get the cord on your desk just right and you never have to worry about batteries dying.

Not Bad At All!

Michael C., Newegg
15 July 2013
  • Pros: Has a nice Sensitivity Button, allows for Quick, and SUPER QUICK modes! Braided Cable, won't be cut easily.
  • Cons: I have large hands and the mouse is more suited for Medium Sized Hands
