In the market for a new mouse

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So what's the latest verdict of Kana and Kinzu V2? Still bad as at launch?

Budget ~ 45 euros. Have always owned Kinzu/WMO/Xai shaped mice. Grip is claw but I'm not very picky about that. What's the best sensor so far in that range? How's the deathadder black doing? Should I just wait a month or two on the purchase due to recent news of new mice coming out on the market from Roccat and Razer?

Hi there, I'd really hold out for a little while longer if I were you.
The Kana and KinzuV2 both have a host of problems that make them not worth the price imo. How ever there is a bunch of new releases that all look promising for your shape preference.
Look into the Razer Taipan, CM Storm Recon /and/or the bst mouse.
All those have roughly the same shape that you are wanting and have a sensor that is a million times better than the one in a kana/kinzuv2.

If you like the shape and weight of the deathadder that's probably the best sensor+firmware+software in the world at the moment.

if use the claw method then you should check out the Logitech G9x.

There's also the Coolermaster Spawn which is for ppl using the claw method, but i have no expereince on it though so I cant comment on it.

CM Storm Spawn if you like claw, otherwise deathadder or g400. IMO all the other mice have major issues.
