Steelseries Kinzu V3 - Page 24

post #231 of 477
Thanks again paers. I'm not too demanding sensor wise. I certainly won't be getting rid of the G100s but if I can pick up a Kinzu V3 then I might give it a try for the shape.

Yup, I own a g100s. It's a great mouse too and I like the shape of both of them quite a lot.

You're not alone.
I couldn't get used to it and always thought it felt like some slight acceleration problems that resulted in inconsistency.
Maybe my sens was too low and the tracking became accelerated/decelerated.

I agree 100%. That and the mushy clicks are the only reason I don't use it exclusively. I'm convinced it's the sensor placement. Most mice have the lens at least nearly in a middlepoint of the pressure points of the mouse. Whether it's between your thumb and pinky or thumb and ring finger depends on your grip... and it does vary from mouse to mouse, and person to person, but it really is typically around that middlepoint. However on the G100s, the sensor is way, way , way too far back to be near that point for any way I hold it. Sure, the lens is near the center of the mouse, but the shape of the G100s makes it effectively too far back.

I've tested the mouse and it doesn't have accel. So it must be as the other guy said, the center if not in the center of the grip (I assume he's talking about a centered claw grip).

I was talking about any grip that was even remotely comfortable that I could figure.

Grip itself wasn't that big of an issue for me with g100s. I believe it was a combination of the tracking (which still has that tiny bit of input lag) and sensor position which seems a little too far back. My preferred sensitivity doesn't allow for the same maneuverability with it, yet it doesn't provide noticeable added control with micro adjustments either.

Also I'll have to take back everything I said about the v3 switches now that I did some more side by side comparison - these are the worst I've ever tried. Nice research you've done there Stoolseries.

Lol! That was quick. I'm definitely not a fan of the current Steelseries switches. We'll see if they improve them in the next iteration.

These switches were a real eye-opener in how they can ruin an otherwise fine mouse. The actuation point is so off from the (mushy) feedback it might as well be random biggrin.gif
