Steelseries Kinzu Red Pro (different sensor?) - Page 3

The TTC switches had to go, horrible things. The D2FC-3M switch feels quite nice.

but only 3kk lifecycle, why not use the 5kk or 10kk version?

edit: just occured to me that you maybe simply have them around and u were not going for the best out there

Are you planning on swapping the LED as well?

I'll be building a couple weeks and am undecided as to which LED I'll be putting in. I would like to lower the LOD without sacrificing perfect control speed. A red-LED seems to be the best candidate to lower the LOD but I'm not sure how much of an effect it will have on perfect control speed.

See the esreality thread:

thuNDa discovered some revisions of the Deathadder skip with a red LED, so I've simply stuck with the original.

Ye, rev.1 works good with red-LED(using it myself), while rev.2 skips very early(Abyssus too BTW).

sounds like different quality LED

Considering both the v1 and v2 use identical sensors the difference has to lie in the processor or the processor's settings on the mouse's pcb.

Exactly the kind of information I needed. Thanks to thuNDa and whybother for pointing me to that thread.

I am thinking about picking up 6 x Kinzu for a batch of KinzuAdders directly from SS with their 30% off deal on during this weekend's PAX.. However, I am only able to select the colour as white?

Doing some research, it appears the white version is a "Pro Edition" with upgraded D2F-01F switches that I was planning on swapping to anyhow.. But I am not sure about the glossy body surface.

Does anyone own the red or white versions of the Kinzu? How does the glossy coating compare what looks to be rough, texturized coating of the black version? I would contact their support but they're closed on the weekend and the sale will be finished by then.

Although it would be nice to have a limited edition colour for the KinzuAdders, I'm not interested if the glossy surface is worse for grip (which is my guess).

Know'm'sayin?

The red kinzu uses an auto-quality paint and it really feels nice to the touch. While it's slick it does NOT attract grime like the white version or the sides of a deathadder. It's really has a quality feel to it.

The white kinzu uses the standard, slick plastic. Think of the surface on the MX518 or the sides of the deathadder. IMO, in terms of feel I'd rank the Kinzus:

Red>Retail>Bulk>White

YMMV, some may like the rubberized feel over the feel of the red kinzu.
