Steelseries Kinzu

The Kinzu is a pretty bland looking mouse. It’s got a matt black, textured surface with slighly glossier black plastic along the sides. It’s not very big and is a pretty lightweight design.

The rear has a Steelseries logo sitting near the base.

Button wise the left and right ones are implemented nicely. They fit into the main frame of the mouse which looks seamless and professional. The central wheel is a bright white which contrasts nicely with the mouse; but I bet that will get horribly dirty over time. Behind this is the DPI switch key which allows for the alternation of two sensitivities specified by the software.

The Kinzu’s underbelly has the optical sensor located dead centre with an indented Steelseries logo just "beneath" it.

At the front and rear are the usual smooth plastic pads to keep the Kinzu gliding easily across your chosen mousing surface.

The cable is braided which gives it a bit more of a classy feeling than the usual plastic coating.

No gold leafing on the USB header on this budget mouse; just typical nickel.
