Kana Up Close

If there is one thing we can never criticise SteelSeries for it's the quality of their packaging. It's sturdy enough to protect whatever comes inside, and the design is always an exercise in minimalist perfection. You know what the product is called, what it looks like, and the features. No endless logos. No fantasy knights.

The Kana itself is, as you can see, seriously matte black, but the brightness of the orange scroll-wheel and CPI button just doesn't come across in photos. It's almost fluorescent. The cable has high quality braiding, and the transparent orange underside helps break up the blackness.

Following the design of its bigger brother the Sensei, the Kana is ambidextrous with a button either side and a nice neutral design. The top is soft and grippy, so you wont lose control in the more frantic moments.

Do you think Steelseries will ever do a left-handed mouse?Quote

Being a owner of both Kinzu V1 and V2, i can say the sensor is an improvement over the V1. Glides very smoothly over my mouse mat, allowing me to improve aiming in FPS such as BF3 (slowly improving my aim)Quote

This are both ambidextrous which I think is as close as you'll ever get. I can't think of a single left-handed only mouse off the top of my head.

With the ability to swap the buttons over in the SteelSeries Engine software, it's as left-handed as you could hope for I believe.Quote

A good 90% of left-handed gamers I know have a DeathAdder. Not saying it's a bad mouse but that it has literally zero competition which I find odd!Quote
