The Roccat Kone[+] Gaming Mouse

The Roccat Kone is completely black in colour and features the Roccat logo on the rear end of the mouse. The mouse surface is a rubber material which seems to be popular among many of todays gaming mice. Two strips for the LEDs along both edges of the Kone are surrounded by a glossy black plastic which certainly makes it stand out just that little bit more. Comparing the Kone with my CM Storm Sentinal Advance, it is of a similiar size in both length and width, not too large at all.

A first look at the Kone and you will most likely spot the selection of different controls. All of these are labelled on the box and can be reprogrammed via the included software. There are two buttons on the left side of the mouse and a total of 3 buttons on the top of the mouse plus the 4 way wheel.

Useful fact: The button in front of the scroll wheel will open the start menu when pressed.

The LEDs that are in place on the Kone, by default, are on the “breathing” setting. This can be changed via the included software as well as the colour of the LEDs (which don’t all have to be the same, so you could choose a multi-coloured design if you so wish) and the direction that the lights flow.

The base of the Kone features slippery feet, the weight system and a 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor for even better precision whilst gaming.
