Guys, any of you have that mouse? Is it worth to buy?
I've got 9HD pad and at the moment I'm playing with mx518 ( i just sold sensei ) It was nice but I had to sell it so mx518 is quite nice but since kana is new I'm curious about it so is it worth buying?
To be fair, that's how MOST SteelSeries products really are. At the start you're like "Wow, this is some good shit!" but after a few months, you get a few hardware problems. Then SteelSeries announces a new product and we're all like "OMG! I CAN'T WAIT!" and the cycle continues.
I don't want to appear as a SteelSeries-hater, but I've had very bad experiences with some of their products.
However, it should also be said that SteelSeries produces mousepads of top quality and I've read quite a lot of good reviews on their keyboards, particularly the 6Gv2. The Siberia v2 is also a splendid headset and I guess that's as far as I can go.
The only thing I'd say is "lacking" in SteelSeries products, especially when speaking about headphones(5Hv2 anyone?) or mice, it's durability. I hope they can work on the durability of their products and less on marketing, and I'm sure they'll win many more buyers as well as positive reviews.
You're 100% right. I bought SS Siberia v2 before half year. The sound quality was awesome, they were very comfortable, but I started having problems with them (the left headphone [or whatever you call] doesn't provide sound anymore...). I bought a Xai some weeks ago. It's awesome so far. I hope it wont have problems.
i have to admit that i was waiting for new steelseries mice but yea i have to admit that these three mice are really failish products, but don't get me wrong, im not anti-SS, i have a bunch of steelseries products...
I tried MANY mouses, the Ikari Optical was the only properly working SS mouse for me. Both Kinzu and Xai had some problems and acceleration issues. Kana is very nicely shaped but I really don't trust in it's performance anymore.
3.0 is still the best mouse on the market. I don't really like RaZeR but their mice are actually good in therms of performance. I never had any issue with my Deathadder. Oh and steelseries products are fucking expensive imo.
This mouse doesn't seem worth it with the issue of the sensor. Also I don't like to mess with drivers. Also having the switch the mousefeet which costs additional money just puts this mouse in a bad light for me especially when there are so many better options out there.
I have been using Kana for 1-2 weeks now and here is a list of bugs I personally have experienced:
- Sensor gets fucked up with coloured pads but ONLY if I fling rly fast. (This is now reduced a bit but not totally fixed)
- Mousewheel bug, when scrolling down it scrolls the page up sometimes. (This is now totally fixed)
I used to be a SteelSeries mice hater but now that I have been using kana for some time, I feel FOR THE FIRST TIME really comfourtable and if all goes well I might be using this for a very long time :)
All these people whining about the bad snesor, shit happens. Firmware fixed it. It works like an absolute beast now. As for the skatez, skatez depend on personal preference anyways. Some people like skatez with less glide, others like teflon skatez that slide all over the place. Its an inexpensive issue to fix if you do.
