Please make a successor of the ikari laser with metal cover and the new software. it's LONG TIME due.

Kim,

What sensor is the kana using?

Thanks for posting.
post #133 of 690
If the Kana delivers for the "hardcore" nerds like us, who cares about the Sensei right? I won't blame Steel for selling out if they keep making products that are meant to be for the so called professional gamer like me

isnt the sensei mouse 1.1 they were working on? :/ confused with all their stuff they are talking about. sensei, 1.1, kana... too much going on for my brain

id give the sensei a try.

is there really that big of difference when gaming with optical as opposed to laser as a lot of people make it out to be?

Xai had slight positive acceleration. And yes, we use the same sensor in Sensei. And, yes, it has the same slight positive acceleration. The referenced video with Markeloff is not something we pay him to do, it is something Natus Vincere did all their own, we didn't even know they were making it. I will guarantee you that he is being honest. He may or may not be right, but from his perspective he is being honest and describing how the product feels to him.

Kana will be optical. I think you already guessed the sensor direction we are taking.

I fixed my post about the blog.

Sorry to hear that the Sensei still has the same sensor and the same positive acceleration that is found on the Xai. That was definitely something I never thought Steelseries would come out and admit. Much appreciated honesty.

If you can, please give us some details on the Kana. Shape? Sensor? you said someone already guessed it? Pixart optical? Ballpark release date?

the Xai is a great mouse. I was a long time wmo user and recently made the switch. Bought the kinzu... too small. Using xai now and I'm pretty happy. the sensor is good in my opinion. great mouse. A xai with less buttons and maybe 10g lighter would be a perfect mouse.

i read the xai was good for people with small hands? i have small hands and was thinking of picking it up. mostly use a fingertip grip with the occasional palm like style.

I'd go with Kinzu/abyssus/wmo with small hands personally. You could use the mico if they were really small. I'd say xai is for medium hands.

so maybe get the kinzu or the Kana if its smaller and a revision of the kinzu

using the r.a.t 7 now if thats any help
post #140 of 690
Kinzu's sensor quality is debatable. I like accel and I think the accel argument that you can't aim with it is finally being put to rest. I happen to like the ambidextrous wmo type shape therefore I didn't like the abyssus.. but maybe you would.
