The SteelSeries Kinzu Optical is one of two ambidextrous, high-definition gaming mice (Kinzu Optical, Xai Laser) released in August 2009. The weaker of the two, the Optical lacks its superior sibling’s built-in LCD menu system. It does however feature offer a finely engineered shape for maximum comfort, a scalable pointer speed up to 3200 counts per inch, and on-the-fly toggle sensitivity (high/low) adjustments. It also supports stored profiles and a customizable report rate between 125Hz-1000Hz. Critics say the Kinzu is light and highly responsive, but it offers too few customizable buttons. And the grip can take awhile to get used to.
