The SteelSeries Kana is an optical, ambidextrous mouse designed for all three grip styles: palm, claw and swipe. The functionality, ergonomic button layout and size were perfected alongside SteelSeries’ professional gaming teams, who also tested and validated the precision and power hidden in the Kana’s modest exterior. Make no mistake; this mouse was built for consistency and accuracy even in professional tournament conditions. Designed by Gamers, SteelSeries Kana is available in two versions: the first named White1.1, while the second was selected by SteelSeries’ Facebook community of more than 300,000 gamers and where 60,000 "Likes" determined the winning design, Black1.1.
The Best Mouse Ever 2.0
Pros: This thing is basically the Steve Austin of optical mice. It looks like it was rebuilt from the ashes of the Microsoft Intellimouse Optical that I fell in love with more than a decade ago. Only this is better. Faster. More accurate. The shielded USB cord is a nice touch too, and it's also fantastically understated for a gaming mouse...
Cons: ...except for the stupid orange glow from the scroll wheel. Gaudy, lighted gaming computers and peripherals stopped being cool when I was 18. I'm old. Shmeh.
Other Thoughts: This thing really is fantastic for the same reasons that the archaic Intellimouse Optical was. It's the perfect size and weight, and it has absolutely perfect button size and placement for those who like to use all five fingers for their mousing adventures. I have trouble with most gaming mice due to them having 2 side buttons on the same side. I can never seem to hit the one I'm aiming for. As an added bonus, it's subtle enough for those of us who make their living in front of their computer to use for productivity purposes when we aren't gaming.

Pros: Unique color scheme, Nice size for average sized hands (Right in between the Kinzu and Sensei, similar to intellimouse 1.1), Great feel for fingertip or claw grippers but large enough to be palmed as well.
Cons: Uses stiff cheap feeling TTC switches as opposed to the Omron switches used in the Sensei and Kinzu v2, low quality plastic feet which are terrible on any cloth pad, Side buttons are fairly easy to accidentally click, 1600 and 3200 dpi settings are interpolated, no intermediate dpi settings or acceleration/deceleration. Overall way to basic with lack of settings for a mouse $60 shipped.
Other Thoughts: My biggest gripe has to be the switches. They're awfully stiff compared to any other mouse Ive used. The kinzu v2 and Sensei have a much softer feel, and a better tactile response. Luckily Steelseries is offering real teflon feet with registration because the original plastic ones are like sandpaper on a cloth pad. The Kinzu v2 or Sensei Raw is a much better choice for a budget conscious mouse compared to the kana. I really thought I'd like this mouse as much as the rest of the Steelseries lineup, but it isnt even up to par with the Kinzu v2 which has a lower price tag.

Pros: Pretty nice mouse. adjustable on the fly. feels good in the palm of your hand. if you do not fancy the plastic slider feet it comees with, steel series is giving away teflon feet replacements for this mouse free.(with serial#).
Cons: for fifty bucks wish there was a couple more buttons.
Other Thoughts: bought the 3yr warranty for another ten bucks or so. couldnt hurt!
