[ad#ad-1]The SteelSeries Kana uses advanced, optical technology that operates at 3600 Frames Per Second and supports stable movement speeds at 130 Inches Per Second. These specs simply say that regardless of your frantic movements, the mouse will consistently deliver, especially for fast-paced FPS games. The SteelSeries Kana has an ergonomic, ambidextrous design that makes it a natural fit for both right and left handed users. The SteelSeries Kana features 2 XL-sized, side buttons (one on each side) for easy rapid-fire. If you choose to not use them, you can disable them using the SteelSeries Engine. The Steel Series Kana was designed to bridge the gap between the kinzu and the Sensei. With 6 buttons, a tournament grade optical sensor, high performance UPE material feet, it strikes an ideal balance in size, features and performance. The illuminated scroll wheel is both stylish and functional. Utilizing the SteelSeries Engine, the LED intensity can be assigned to indicate the currently active CPI profile.

These CPI settings, which reach up to 3200, are also easily adjustable via the SteelSeries Engine.

Conclusion
The SteelSeries Kana is a  design for claw grip gamers, which is my only problem with with it. The button layout is comfortable. The SteelSeries engine works perfectly and the mouse response time is impeccable as you can see with the game. The Kana might not be for everyone, but it does the job well and I recommend this mouse to any serious gamer
