Please let me know if their latest stock is jitter free, I might pick one up and plastidip the sides.

Will do.


I actually ordered a Salmosa Pro gaming edition mouse from korea and boy this thing is way too small to use LOL



Surface: Qck+

It's unfortunate that I can't use this mouse..The sensor performance, click feedback, and scroll wheel felt exceptionally good for the $15 USD I paid.

Also, let me make it clear that the prediction on this mouse isn't bad at all. It's probably closer to the pixart sensor in the MiCO than an ADNS-3060/3080.


Sorry to go off topic

Hopefully they go a different route with the Kana/1.1. If anything, that pixart sensor in the new WoW mouse is a good indication that we might see a "fixed" Kinzu relatively soon.

I would love to see a Kinzu with the Pixart sensor, and it probably is around the corner. I'm not sure it would make a ton of sense to buy a specific sensor for only a niche mouse, when you make many others, so you have to assume they will be getting them into some other mice.

As far as the Sensei goes, it's very hard to create mice and target them at a specific audience (let's be honest, when they talk about not needing high DPI, people like the ones posting here are the ones who listen, not the masses - hell the masses probably don't remember that post), and make the same kind of profits the other companies do. The Sensei will allow them to take a chunk of that pie, which could turn into them making a ton of gaudy crap - or, although probably less likely, they could stick to having one overhyped mouse with tons of useless features and use those profits to make some more pretty nice stuff. Other than the Kinzu, I don't see a mouse in their stable that was a complete piece of junk, and the build quality has always been fairly high on all their mice IMO... so the added cash flow could make those things better.

What I would have liked to see, though, would have been a statement saying "We can beat Razer at the DPI race, too" instead of abandoning the concepts they had before. I have no problem with Steelseries wanting to make some money in a market that's been made by their competitors - as long as they keep to their core statements.

Am I really the only one here that's excited about not having to move my fingers to move a cursor anymore? I cannot wait til this thing is out.

I have it too and you're right it's too small to hold comfortably. Other thing it's 120Hz only (changeable with hidusbf) and without any software.

I had older logitech mice for all the time. the build quality is very good but the plastic lasts one years top to me and the pads 3 weeks.

Looks like i'm waiting for a ikari v2 with metal cover and new software. The ikari was the only mouse which has perfect fit for my hand, and i'm not changing shape and get carpal tunnel, tyvm.
