SteelSeries Optical Kana Dota 2 Version

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


Hi, I was thinking to change my mouse, I currently have a Laser G3 which I bought a long time ago and it works very well but now that I changed my pad to s razer I have noticed that there is some weird jigglering on my mouse, reading on some post it looks like the laser doesnt work well with this type of pad, and since its quite old I was thinking to buy a new one.

So I decided to go and pickup a Steelseries Optical Kana on my store, does anyone has it? any reviews, or comments on where to buy or not to buy ???

Thanks.

Why you say its bad, do you had one or have one? what would you recommend as a gaming mouse for a hard surface like the Ironclad (current pad) from razer?

Thats down to personal opinion, personally I don't have a problem with TTC switches.

I personally use the Kana Non-Dota 2 version but if I was in the market for another one I'd get the Dota 2 version since it has a rubber cable and the braided cable was a pain in the ass and is still too stiff.

After you update the firmware, setup your settings, save it to mouse, (my personal step) remove the drivers, get some nice mouse feet on there and its perfect.

Love the mouse nice and light and its got 5 mouse buttons, suits my needs to the tee.

The TTC switches in the Kana didn't bother me THAT much but they went defective in a very short amount of time. If I take my Kana and hold down left click it will register but then if I take away any pressure it will stop registering that click. The button is still depressed, it just has a dead spot in the middle of its long travel. No other mouse that I have ever used has done anything like this, especially within a couple months of use.

Other than that, the sensor isn't that great, it has prediction and both of my Kana's share a high lift off distance. I wouldn't recommend buying this mouse for the $50 that Amazon and Newegg are asking. I might recommend it to a friend if it was $25.
