"In the end is the SteelSeries Kinzu worth $34.99? I would say definitely, at least for the serious gamers out there. It is the cheapest gaming mouse on the market, with most of the other low-end gaming mice starting around $40.00. For those looking for a gaming mouse with more functionality, Kinzu's bigger brother Xai might be more suitable, as will many other high-end mice on the market. But for those looking for a basic gaming mouse, this is it."

Score: 9/10

"This mouse should definitely be on your short list if you are a FPS gamer looking for a budget mouse. Since this mouse has a wealthy resolution of up to 3200 DPI and excellent scaling downwards, it can both be the high and low sensitivity gamer's weapon."

"Couple the tracking capabilities with the perfect mouse feet, a light weight body, short travel buttons and a lift off distance of only 2 mm and you are in for quite a treat."

Score: 9.5/10

"I did not experience any jitter with the Kinzu and the tracking is as close to perfect as you're going to get. [...]"

"It also proved comfortable regardless of whether I was using a claw or palm grip and it has a well balanced center of gravity making overall movements very smooth."

"I would absolutely recommend this to any gamer who's on a budget and wants a quality mouse which they can rely upon. This is an excellent piece of kit, and if it was not so trying during regular usage I would use it as my full-time mouse without any major qualms at all. That said, this has real potential, and signifies that optical mice really aren't dying out yet, and you don't have to spend a fortune on a solid gaming mouse."
