    Without much fanfare, peripheral company SteelSeries has begun shipping in Europe one of its latest gaming mice, the tournament-grade Kinzu v2 Pro Edition. This new rodent measures 64 (W) x 36 (H) x 127 (D) mm and has an ambidextrous design, three buttons and a clickable scroll wheel, Omron button switches, Teflon feet enabling a low-friction glide, and a 3200 dpi optical sensor.

    The Kinzu v2 Pro Edition also features a 1,000 Hz polling rate, a 2 meter braided cable, USB 2.0 connectivity, and comes in three color versions - black, red and silver. Currently only the black model is available and it costs 44.90 Euro. The global availability of this mouse is planned for early January.

    I use the original Kinzu, its okay. The Sensei is one amazing mouse but its expensive and rightly so.

    I'm about to make review on Steelseries Sensei and I don't see why are they bringing Kinzu v2 to Europe anymore. Maybe it's the price.

    I have the XAI mouse and the 7G keyboard - top notch IMO - but pricey :cool:

    whats special about this mouse? I use a MX510 from Logitech Still

    Nothing at all. It has a sensor plagued with acceleration issues, and doesn't have side buttons, which makes it useless for me. Unless I'm buying the mouse to play Quake 3, Painkiller etc. only, I need the side buttons. The MX510/18 are very solid mice (you can see as it lasted for years) with a reliable optical sensor. None of these overexaggerated 3000-5000 DPI nonsense. ;)

    i can understand having ultra high sensors for Architecture or Photo/ Flash Progams, but for gaming not so much, Even the best gamers stick with one mouse setting.

    Thing is, they aren't accurate at those DPI's. Usually it's best off using a lower DPI (like 2000) with higher sensivity. Those laser sensors (Agilent) work best in that range.

    higher dpi just means more sensitivity for me but easier to jiggle the mouse alot easier which isnt good for certain tasks- very bad for games.

    Reminds me of the Look Motion in XB or PS FPS games such- I set the look stick lower than default but not to lowest for best control (i tend to move the stick around in longer strokes than short ones in those games)
